Fence overhaul

A friend recommended us Daniel & Co. for repairing a large section of a fence that started leaning during the last half-year. We could not be happier that we hired his company. The work was top-notch, posts being dug and installed even deeper than the recommend 4ft, perfectly plumb and the finished fence looked absolutely great. We highly appreciate the attention to detail he and his team put in and the finished product looked much better than we expected.
Equally important was his attitude: extremely professional (he explained all steps in great detail etc) but at the same time friendly and extremely polite. He is a pleasure to deal with - which is not something we can say about many contractors these days.
To sum it up, we are really happy we hired Daniel and his team for this project and we are definitely going to contact him for other jobs since we learned they have a wide array of skills beside carpentry - hence we are looking forward to do our next home improvement project with Daniel and his team.
Highly recommended, kudos to Daniel and his company !

Balcony Project

We hired Daniel a couple of years ago to finish our newly-excavated basement and he's helped us (and family members) out with a few projects since then. Recently we needed to modify our balcony so that we could remove the front railing when necessary (to allow us to move items out of our bedroom via the balcony) so we called Daniel again.

No surprise, Daniel was able to do exactly what we wanted. He made it so that the front railing slides into bolts (so that it's normally locked in place but can be lifted out if necessary) and he also installed a little board to protect our eavestrough. It works perfectly and he got the job done in good time and for a very fair price. No complaints...I would definitely recommend Daniel for any project, big or small.

Thank you for the review. I'm glad we brought your vision to reality when we fabricated custom railing hardware.

Two Bathroom Renovations

We couldn't be happier with Daniel's professionalism, positivity and performance during the renovations of our two bathrooms he completed this winter. We had found his profile on HomeStars a few years ago and hired him finish a basement bathroom that needed attention. We were so pleased with him after that experience that we called on him again to complete our home's other two bathrooms. Daniel's work on these spaces demonstrates his keen attention to detail and his commitment to keeping his clients happy. We felt comfortable allowing him to make decisions using his judgement, although he always checked in with us before proceeding. In trouble shooting unforeseen situations, Daniel was able to offer us different solutions and worked quickly to ensure that minimal time was lost in the project's completion. His pleasant, easy-going disposition makes Daniel very approachable and his presence was always welcomed in our home. He showed care for the rest of the house as he completed the bathrooms by protecting surrounding spaces and even noticed a hole in the basement wall from boisterous children and voluntarily patched it up for us. We will definitely be calling on Daniel for future projects in our home.

Basement Renovation

We hired Daniel for our basement renovation, and we were extremely happy that we did.

Our project involved excavating the back 300 sq/ft of our basement from a 3' crawlspace to 8' depth (the excavation was done by another contractor) then finishing it (including a full room, hallway, closet, and laundry nook with washer/dryer, sink, electrical box, and cabinets).

We spoke with a number of other contractors before choosing Daniel, and I can say that he was the best combination of low price (his was basically the lowest quote we got, other than a shady guy that I'm glad we didn't go with) and ability to handle everything we threw at him.

Actually, that was the best thing about Daniel. We started with measured plans, but we also wanted to add a number of things after we started. Daniel didn't say no to anything. Travertine (which other contractors said they couldn't handle)? Not a problem. Plumbing? Fine. Foundation repair? Quartz countertop installation? Pocket doors? Hand-modifying Ikea closet organizers to fit our space? Done, done, done, and done. He took everything in stride, and he made sure that everything was exactly the way we wanted it. Now obviously he didn't do everything himself (although he was quite capable), but what he couldn't do himself he always had a subcontractor to handle.

Another thing I should mention is that Daniel is nice. He's just a nice guy. He never complained with our changes to the schedule, he always had a smile on his face, and he was great to deal with at all times.

Bottom line: I would hire Daniel again in a second. He did everything we wanted and more.

I would be remiss, however, if I didn't mention the fact that the project took substantially longer than was originally planned. It was supposed to run from late August to late October, and when everything was said and done it ended in early March of the next year. While some of the extra time was due to changes to the plan by us, this was maybe one (two MAX) of the four-month delay.

That being said, I think it says a lot that I'm giving a 10-star review to a contractor that took twice as long as planned for the job. If you're in an extreme time crunch then I might not recommend Daniel; in any other case, however, I would recommend him without reservation.

Bathroom Renovation

We were very happy with the attention to detail Daniel displayed during the project.

The project was a complete gutting and rebuild of the existing room.

We never felt like the project was rushed.

In the end we were very satisfied with the work and would highly recommend Daniel and his team.

Replace Post under deck.

This is the second time I use the services of Davis Renovation. He did a perfect job replacing the woden post that was rotten. He cleaned up the place after work.
I'm very satisfied with the work done.

Basement Re-Construction Phase 1

After moving into a newly built home with some shoddy work, we knew there might be problems down the road to solve. We experienced a pretty extensive flood in our basement a few days ago and Daniel Davis Renovations came through like no other. My wife is pregnant and the worry of mold development lingered. To remove the drywall immediately, my wife looked on HomeStars and came across this company with amazing reviews. You'd think they are too good to be true, but I assure you they are true. In his compassion and empathy for my wife's concern about mold, Daniel came here the same day and ripped apart our walls from 6 PM - 3 AM! Exactly what we wanted and saves us from the potential of mold. His company is trustworthy, caring, reliable and most importantly does superior work. We will be using Daniel Davis renovations to reconstruct our basement and other projects without hesitation. When those projects come around, we will be posting reviews as well. Based on the way they went about the first phase of construction, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company for anyone looking to do what they do.

Skimming and repair of plaster walls

Daniel and his team did an amazing job repairing and skimming over the old plaster stucco look on the walls in our home. We didn't think it would be possible to get the smooth look without drywalling. They also rebuilt a closet for us and we are really pleased with the result. We would highly recommend them.
