CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

"Duane and his crew recently finished our first major renovation on our new home. We had multiple projects going on in our home. Everything was completed on time and we were impressed with all the sub contractors work. We really enjoyed the experience with Duane and his team. They were patient when we had not made final decisions . We appreciated having daily updates from Kelly- the project manager. The team was extremely accommodating to working with our own painter in regards to scheduling. This was our first renovation job and the overall experience was excellent."

-Leslie Moss

"Duanne and his team are excellent. They connected my roof to my house, which was recommended by a structural engineer. I got Duanne's name from the engineer and I was extremely happy. I'm using him again to install a gas fireplace and fix molding on the outside of my home...."

"I was in the middle of a time critical sale of my house when the house inspection necessitated some structural reinforcements to bring the structure up to current codes. Duane was able to preform the work required (as specified by an engineering firm review), in a stunningly fast and efficient fashion, coordinating and preforming all the work and assuring timely inspection by the building department of the work underway and completed so as to meet the closing date for the house. The work involved ordering and installing a steel reinforcing beam, and its still a mystery to me as to how he was even able to get the steel beam ordered and delivered to spec in the time involved, never mind actually handling the demolition and construction to get the beam installed and the surrounding building restored, including painting of interior and exterior to match the surrounding untouched structure. The entire project ran less than 3 weeks. Extremely grateful to Duane for saving this sale."

-Basil Smith

"Duane recently redid our old, 1960s yellow bathroom. What a change! Everything is perfect! At the beginning of the gutting, we ran into some insulation problems that we weren't happy with and Duane made sure it was done to our liking. He also made sure the chrome installed underneath the sink was fixed to my liking. It turned out great. Duane is very easy to work with and comes up with creative ideas for tricky problems."

-Linda Jacobs

"I have used Duane for several projects. The quality of his work has been great, and his pricing is fair. He and his team have always been caring and responsive."

-M. Bresnan

"Duane braced a basement wall that was being pushed inward as a result of improper backfilling. This involved setting several floor to ceiling piers. The final project was completed with a drywall fronting the piers to make the basement look presentable. He was very easy to work with; reliable and the job was completed on time."

-Anonymous

"Duane did a wonderful job completing a variety of modifications to my dad's home. His rates were fair and reasonable. I would definitely hire him again and recommend him to my friends."

-Anonymous

"I hired Duane and his lead carpenter Chad for the framing on my home addition and renovation. Beginning with his detailed quote and responsive communications, Duane was excellent on the project management side. Chad and his guys were completely professional, hard-working, and great to work with."

"Duane of DCBuilds is one of the most professional builders I have had the pleasure to work with. The whole project was on time and within budget. No detail was too small, and he presented me with several options on how to complete the project. He also pointed out several aspects of the project that were well within my skill set( DIY homeowner) and saved me money that way as well. I have a few other things coming up that need to be done, and DCB will be my first and possibly only call. I cannot say enough good things about him."

-Anonymous

"DCBuilds performed a renovation of a mid century modern home for us. The work was quite extensive including the replacement of the HVAC system with a new Geothermal system, installation of three new bathrooms, a new kitchen, replacement of the fire place, sanding and staining of wood floors as well as new electrical and plumbing. The was work completed on time and on budget. Workmanship was excellent. Duane managed the job professionally and was a pleasure to work with."

-Anonymous

"We hired DC Builds to repair a large water damage problem in our house. We are extremely happy with the work performed. His price was fair, workmanship and quality was excellent. Project was completed on time as promised. The workers were neat , cleaned up every night before leaving and were respectful. We would definitely hire Duane again and recommend him very highly."

-Shelby F.

"We highly recommend Duane as an Owner's Rep. We engaged Duane to help us rescue our residential building project. Our lack of experience in building a home, combined with the project management capabilities of our builder and our architect, were no match for the challenge. For a variety reasons the project management process had broken down almost entirely. Duane brought extensive experience in managing large projects as well as deep hands on construction skills. This was the right combination of skills for our project and he was very effective in guiding us and the rest of the project team out of the morass. He worked constructively with all parties and without a doubt his involvement led to a better experience and better end result for all. In my opinion, without his help, it is unlikely the project would have come to a successful end."

"We hired Duane Barney to do updates on our home several years ago. He and the people that work with him were a pleasure to be around. Duane's creativity to new ideas helped me with difficult decisions, estimating was accurate and the work finished on time. Great Job!"

-Keller Williams Real Estate

"Three words describe DC Builds/Duane Barney; Vision, Integrity, Sensitivity. He has the vision to see what it will take to deliver an excellent result, the integrity to ensure the job is done right and the sensitivity to take the time to understand a client's needs and incorporate them into a job. His performance on our project was our best experience with a contractor in over 20 years of renovations on our house. He is now our "go to" choice for all projects large and small."

-Anonymous

"Duane from DCBuilds has worked on multiple projects in our home. He is responsive and professional, and his work is top notch. Duane will always be honest in his assessment of the project, and will offer you cost effective alternatives. He is a pleasure and we will continue working with him!"

-G. Formich

"I hired DCBuilds to update the entire upstairs of my house and add a full bathroom to the master bedroom. Their work looks wonderful, the workers are professional, and the price is right on point. This is the second project I've hired DCBuilds for, and I'll hire them again for the next one when it comes up later down the line. I highly recommend DCBuilds for all kinds of work. They really helped me take my new-old home and turn it into something I can call my own."

-Jill Hackett

"Duane Barney is an excellent General Contractor and an excellent Owner's Representative. He is organized, calm, patient, and can always come up with creative solutions to any building problem. He brought a beautifully designed kitchen from the blue prints to reality, within the budget and on time. His staff is responsible and talented. He is very smart and always has the client's best interest in mind. Duane is a very positive and reliable person who has worked on many very exclusive, high end projects. He brings that expertise to every project he works on. We highly recommend him!!"
