We used Dan this past March of 2011 to finish our basement. I honestly was very nervous about hiring a contractor with all the rumors of horror stories. What I liked about Dan was that he was straight forward and organized. He was also always available by phone and email. Dan put together an awesome calendar schedule for me that outlined exactly what was happening on which day. He also was very honest about costs with us. He was creative as well. If there was anything I didn’t think looked right, I would tell him, and sure enough it was fixed the next day. He was a no excuses kind of guy. He takes pride in his work. It met my expectation and there were never any hidden costs. Anything that we ran into, Dan was very upfront about with me and would provide me an updated statement. I certainly would use him again.
