Peaceful Home

I considered multiple contractors from which I selected Done Right. They listened well and came up with a great room addition design using their in-house designer. Throughout the project, they were very responsive and proved to be masters problem solvers. I recommend Done Right as a general contractor company.

My remodeling project was initially scoped out and an accurate estimate was provided. We then worked with a design person and went through three iterations of renderings to get to the final design. What I really liked is that Done Right Builders and Remodeling is a company that has a cadre of craftsman as specialists in their craft.
