Everything looks great and having watched the work progress, I could tell that the workmanship was very careful and thorough
We had a great experience with Design Builders. They truly did a fantastic job and their customer service was excellent. Any comment or issue we had was always well received and the response from Design Builders was "How can we make it right?". We'd definitely recommend them to anyone.
I had a bad experience similar to other low-raters. At first Design Builders seemed like a good firm to handle a big, complex deck rebuilding project. But after James initially estimated the project would be within our ballpark budget, he wrote a proposal that was nearly twice that much, and when I balked and asked him to explain, he hung up on me -- a very emotional move I've never seen from a professional businessman before. Moreover, during a proposal review session he attempted to charge me $250 for, he allotted only one hour's time for discussing the essential parts of the complex project, and spent the first two-thirds of the time insisting on talking about extras that we didn't even want, especially in light of the inflated price he proposed for the basic project. Overall, we'd warn you away from James because he overcharges and acts unprofessionally toward potential customers.
The project came in on time and the customer service was excellent.
The final product is well done and exactly what we wanted. The pricing is fair and Jamie provided helpful ideas and suggestions during the design process. However, there were a few things during the execution of the project that could have gone smoother and created some unneeded stress.

Our project consisted of a new portico, screened in porch, patio and new roof. We could not be happier with our overall experience with Design Builders. Their professionalism, communication and workmanship throughout the entire process far exceeded our expectations, and we highly recommend them.
Areas Of Satisfaction - We felt very comfortable with DB from the very first meeting we had with them, and they remained very professional throughout the entire process. The communication of everyone involved with our project was excellent. I was really impressed with the quality of work and attention to detail. The builders took great pride in their craft and approached our project like they were working on their own home. We were very, very pleased with that aspect.
DB is an excellent contractor. Every aspect of the process (pre-planning, rough-in, final inspection) was executed without a hitch. The project was completed early and on budget, which is almost unheard of. DB’s subs were equally professional. All-in-all, I would highly recommend DB, and, should the need arise, I would gladly hire them again.
Design Builders built us a very nice screened-in porch that morphed perfectly with our home.
Areas Of Satisfaction - The enclosed porch and deck are beautiful and functional. We are very pleased with the workmanship and that the project was completed on time for a family celebration. The construction team worked long hours each day to create a wonderful addition to our house.
I recently had four Fenetex motorized, retractable screens installed on my backyard open porch. There was a little delay with installation date, but only because of issues with the manufacturer. All time best customer service, product, and most importantly to me, clear communication and follow up. The Fenetex retractable screens are a great addition to my home. Very high quality, invisible when they're open, and the best solution to enjoy the beauty of an open porch without having to worry about bugs. Thank you Design Builders, Inc for a wonderful job and beautiful screen installation!
I thought they were great!
Areas Of Satisfaction - I was most satisfied with the finished product. We love it.
Came highly recommended and delivered quality work at a fair price
