“From the initial consultation, DES presented as a well informed and organized company. The first meeting to discuss our lower level finishing project was very robust and informative for us as newbies in home renovations. Stephen provided us full details on how the company coordinates the project from start to finish, including an example of a thorough budget worksheet that explains every dollar spent. Response time to questions and concerns were prompt, sometimes immediate. We decided to collaborate with DES over two other companies because the attention to every single detail was above all others. During the project, DES continued to present themselves as they initially did. Stephen was always very professional and available. He was able to orchestrate a whole team of sub-contractors to finish our project with the highest quality and efficiency. DES seems only to collaborate with subcontractors that are on the same level of professionalism and quality as their company. Dwight is an expert craftsman and handled all his projects with the utmost attention to even the finest details. DES’ customer service is of the highest level. You can rest assured that all issues that arise will be handled with care and to your satisfaction, as these instances did occur on our project and were handled swiftly and worry free. I feel DES is dedicated to each project as highest priority and will work within your budget and expectations that will leave you with a beautiful space like our lower level! Thanks DES!”

“I was very pleased with the level of service and professionalism demonstrated by Stephen and his team from Dream’s Envisioned & Sustainable Home Renovations. I hired them to perform painting work and to fix a ceiling vent. The repairman arrived on time, explained in detail what needed to be performed, and were upfront with the time and cost involved. I would hire them again as well as recommend to friends.”

“Everything was great. Project took a little longer than anticipated, but that is to be expected with full renovations. However, my project manager was there for me the entire way. Answered every call, and kept me in the loop through the entire process. Thanks Stephen and DES! I look forward to working with you again soon.”

“This was the best experience that I ever had with a contractor. Stephen listened to what we wanted done, explained all of the steps, the time frame and the costs before the project began. They respected our house, putting protective plastic and tarps on the floor, and cleaning up every day before they left. All of the employees were friendly and took the time to let us know what they would be doing that day. The final results were beyond what we had expected and the quality of the work was first class. I have no problem giving them the highest recommendation.”

“I was most satisfied with the DES explanation of their remodeling process and how the budget is generated. This gave me great confidence that I had found an organized and methodical partner to work on my project. Throughout the process I found the expert advice offered by DES most helpful. Pointing me to build options, vendors and new products that fulfilled my design concept was most helpful.”

“I was lucky to find DES. I had a very frustrating search for contractors in publications. I had a few disappointing interviews and meetings with contractors who provided unaccepted production plans and budgets. After multiple online searches, I stumbled upon the DES website. The DES website provided very complete information about the company and information about their previous projects. Their philosophy was clearly stated. The website presentation was polished and reflected an attention to detail that I appreciated. My initial phone contact led to a meeting the very same day. Nice follow through.”

“When I started my research on finding a contractor for my bathroom renovation, it was overwhelming and I was definitely nervous about finding the right person for the job. From my very first meeting with Stephen Samuels, I was so impressed with his professional and thorough approach to every aspect of the project. He was extremely helpful and insightful with every decision that had to be made with regard to functionality and design. Dwight Samuels was top notch, along with every subcontractor that worked on the bathroom and my house was always left immaculately clean at the end of the work day. I loved receiving the weekly updates, keeping us apprised of what was happening on a daily basis and he was always available at a moments notice if I had a question. I could not be happier with the finished product and looking forward to having DES renovate my master bathroom in the very near future!”

“Stephen did an excellent job from beginning to end. He kept on top of all the details and made sure everything was coordinated and completed on time. He came up with a really innovative idea for creating partial cathedral ceilings in both the family and living rooms of the ranch style house. He also came up with an idea for recessing the soap shelf in the wall of the shower stall to make it look very distinctive. He made the difficult process of selecting and installing the kitchen cabinets and counter tops go very smoothly. He made sure all of the subcontractors performed up to his very high standards. Overall, he made the process of completely rebuilding a foreclosure house go smoothly and quickly. I was very pleased with his work and would recommend DES Home Renovations to anyone who wants an excellent one stop shop contractor.”

If it was not for Dreams Envisioned & Sustainable Home Renovations, my kitchen would still be under construction.

“I have known Stephen Samuels of DES Home Renovations for over a year now, and I can say he is one of the most detail-oriented people I’ve ever worked with. He truly cares that everything comes out perfect, and it shows in his work. From writing proposals to explaining things to homeowners to completing the project, Stephen and his team go through painstaking detail to make sure all of the details are exactly how he and the homeowner want them. If you’re looking for a quality remodeling contractor who pays attention to detail (and doesn’t just use that phrase as a selling point), I recommend DES.”

“The whole process was outstanding. Communication was outstanding, trades were outstanding, comments and suggestions on ways to do things better were outstanding. The entire building process, from the development of the concept to completion, was an enjoyable experience. They exceeded our expectations every step of the way, and we have been overwhelmingly impressed in all aspects of the project. It has been an absolute pleasure working with such devoted and conscientious professionals with expertise in their specific fields.

“We are doing 2nd floor addition over a ranch house and full remodeling of 1st floor. Being this is a big project we were very concerned whom to use. We are glad that we found DES Home Renovations. The project is halfway and I am enjoying every moment of it with DES and their sub contractors. They are all very professional and have a good eye for details and quality. They take good care of my property and leave it clean and secured after they leave every day. Project prep work was done nicely and all details defined, discussed and documented. Documentation itself gave us lot of comfort. This also helped us budget our project as no item was left for later surprises. We are ahead of project scheduled completion date.”

“Very poor communication with the General Contractor resulted in unnecessary delays and drama. If DES were the General Contractor on this project, I believe all would have gone smoothly and on time.

“We were introduced to Des Home Renovations via Lowe’s for our kitchen renovation project. At the time Dwight Samuels was working for the sub-contractor assigned to our job. Dwight arrived when he said he would and completed when he said he would! He was always on time and prepared for work.Our kitchen renovation was challenging at best (no fault of Dwight’s) His knowledge and abilities proved no match for the obstacles he would face. We were very much impressed by his fortitude, attention to detail, sense of pride and overall skilled craftsmanship. Dwight is a perfectionist, an artisan, and luckily he was assigned to our job. We enjoyed having him in our home and trusted his advice and recommendations regarding the project when obstacles arose. My husband and I would highly recommend Dwight and his team for any kitchen or renovation project.We in fact will continue to use him and his team for any future projects in our home! Warmest Regards and sincere thanks for a job well done.”

“Replaced exterior pop out/bay window (2 story) with Azek and flashing, caulked all. Also repaired front door frame – rotted wood and screen door frame.

1. Estimate was performed professionally and accurately, with all options provided and a clear understanding of the problem that needed to be resolved
2. The business owners were involved in performing the work – not a large subcontract crew, at least for our job.
3. Fully licensed and references provided
4. Workmanship appears very high quality, which is important for an exterior job. (will update if any issues noted at a later date)
5. Very clean – removed shoes/boots in the house, the patio and back yard were spotless when they finished.
6. On time – started and finished when they said, entire job complete in 2 days.”
