Description

Call us Today!!! With over 100 years of combined experience D & R Construction offers a wide range of residential and commercial services. Our focus is on client satisfaction and providing high quality work at a fair and affordable price. Many construction companies have a set hierarchy where owners, project managers, and employees each fall within their respective category. Here at D&R we challenge that hierarchy set up. The owner gets just as dirty as the laborer, and the carpenter gets to know the client just as well as the owner. At D&R we all work together to be the BEST decision a homeowner ever made! We look forward to earning your business....

Eric's team rebuilt our entire three season room, which was not functional. It is now, thanks to Mike and Brian. It also looks very good! Mike works hard at getting things done, and teaches the younger crew very well. He is structured and trustworthy. He also was patient answering my questions (I always have too many..!). Brian pays great attention to detail! I was impressed by how good the tile w...

D & R Construction was one of 3 contractors that we contacted for quotes for remodeling work. We were looking for someone to help with knocking down walls, gut renovating a kitchen and two bathrooms, as well as doing flooring and some work in bedrooms. This review pertains to the quote process. Eric Dutra was very responsive and professional throughout the process, offering insight and past experi...

We recently completed a kitchen and bathroom renovation and are very pleased. Having previously practiced construction law, I was particularly impressed with Eric's communication skills, responsiveness, and willingness to answer any and all questions we had without getting defensive. I think that is a rare quality in the construction profession. His crew Mike and Dave always were pleasant and frie...

The work took much longer than expected (4 months) and we ran right down to the max on what our home owner's insurance would allow for us to be put up in a hotel. D & R worked to fit us in around a lot of other jobs and this made it difficult to get much done quickly or more than 1-day per week of work in. One subcontractor was unprofessional and refused to do work he had agreed to causing us a 3-...

My condo had a plumbing flood and there was a lot of damage to walls, floors, and ceilings. D & R Construction gave us a very reasonable bid for the work. They were very responsive to all contact and friendly.

Eric and Tom are passionate about the work they do and clearly love it. They listened throughout the project, were able to make suggestions and help us to be comfortable with work being done in our home - which is key when having any type of construction work done at home. Trust. Frankie is awesome and talented. Three projects done with great satisfaction - more in the future as we plan our kitche...

Description of Work
Front porch enclosure: D&R finished our front enclosure, added a new exterior door, new windows, insulation, and a mailbox slot. New framing was required for the door and the finish work on the inside was done beautifully. New windows were added, replacing the old, broken jealousy windows. The ceiling was opened to expose the beams and add space. On D&R's recommendation we added some trim work to give the space a nice finished look. The custom built mail slot provides added security and our mail person is very happy with it. We also replaced two interior windows (living room) and love the windows they suggested using. Prior to this, Eric and Tom did some finish work in our second bathroom, added a storm door, replaced a rotted board on our back deck enclosure, and recommended and added a light fixture to the overhang, and a custom banister on stairs.

Basement project: We met with Eric and he was our point person for the whole project. He and his team couldn't have been better. We were ripped off by another contractor a few years prior to this so to say we were gun shy was an understatement. Eric definitely made us feel comfortable with the whole process. The 2 guys who came in to do the carpentry did an excellent job, always included us on dec...

We were very impressed with the team from D&R. They were polite, punctual, and respectful. They were happy to work with us on resolving several details that came up. For example, when they found some of the planks that were so warped they couldn't be re-used (which we knew might be the case from the beginning), they took the time to show us how and why. D&R completed the new deck on schedule, and ...

Description of Work
When my wife and I bought our condo two years ago, the only outstanding issue was the front porch: it was only supported by a pair of 2x4s balanced on cinderblocks. Definitely not to code. So the porch was drooping and needed to be rebuilt. After finding quotes from multiple contractors, we settled on D&R. Their pricing was in the middle--neither the cheapest (which was from a sketchy contractor who constantly flaked on showing up to do the estimate), but less than the highest (from a well rated contractor but clearly charging a steep premium).

The various projects with them have gone well. I'm proud of the joint custom projects which incorporate creativity and complexity. I'm pleased that their open to my ideas and what can be done. I'm glad that they know a lot of what I don't know. And I'm delighted they're successful not only with me but a growing clientele, and recommend them without any question. Make sure, as in projects with any ...

Description of Work
Over the last 5 years or so, I've come to rely on D&R/Tom & Eric, for all my construction, renovation and remodeling needs. As they were new at the beginning in setting up their practice, I tested them with a small project. Over the years, the scope has varied, from cleanup to custom craftsmanship to fixing previous people's works to brainstorming on possible improvements. I have come to rely on them. They can deliver, very rare in the construction business, on the big three: good (quality), fast (prompt/punctual) and economical (price). They handled all my work until a local reputable architect recommended I use his contractor for a complex new deck. I went with his recommendation, and it was a fiasco. When that contractor left me with inept work, D&R, stepped in to clean up their mess and fix the situation. They are very honest, very energetic/hardworking, very thorough & flexible, yet very humble. Their humility is good because they know what they know, and what they don't know and are willing to learn what they don't know as much as possible. A joy and comfort to work with.
