Younger, can-do attitude; equally respectful and talented crew. Creative in dealing with challenging construction issues. Works effectively with sub-contractors and architects. Interviewed six contractors before awarding job to DB Custom Homes. Simply no comparison."

  • It was a pleasure to work with this fine gentleman.

    "I would highly recommend Dave Bernstein for any renovation you may have. He was amazing in the renovation of our 2 bathrooms. He is incredibly hardworking — I came home to find him vacuuming the halls after the workers had left. He picked up when others fell behind. He has an amazing ability to calm even the most rattled personality, be that the homeowner or the trades people. He has excellent interpersonal skills, communicates well and always keeps you very well informed as to what will be happening next. He will search out the best trades and will keep costs down by moving the job along quickly to save you money and aggravation. It was a pleasure to work with this fine gentleman."

  • We would highly recommend Dave for your next renovation or building project.

    "Dave had renovated our basement earlier this year and we couldn't have been more pleased and satisfied with the result as well as the process. Dave Bernstein is the complete package: He is driven, professional, accountable and demands as much of himself and his trades as we would as homeowners and discriminating clients. The process was seamless and honestly, stress-free. He kept in constant communication with us, fostering a relationship of trust and confidence that we, as clients, knew exactly what was happening at all times and that the quality produced was at the highest level and with the greatest attention to detail. All transactions were transparent and all interactions with the various suppliers and trades-people were positive with Dave as our advocate. If you want pride in ownership, you need someone who takes pride in his work. We would highly recommend Dave for your next renovation or building project."

  • Our experience with Dave has been nothing but positive.

    "We hired Dave Bernstein Custom Homes for our basement project. We finished approximately 2000 square feet to include a home theatre, games area, a guest bedroom, a craft/activity room, a home gym, a wet bar and a gas fireplace with a granite wall. Our experience with Dave has been nothing but positive. He is an honest businessman who truly puts the customer first. He works with integrity. He prefers a clean work area and holds his tradeworkers to the same standards. He is eager to help his customers realize their wishes with a building project, yet is able to provide useful and helpful information from his experience in the custom home business. The quality of work is impeccable. Our finishes included a hardwood floor, porcelain tile for the bathroom, quartz countertops, custom cabinetry and a contemporary linear fireplace with a granite façade. We are proud to show our basement to others. Once again, we wholeheartedly endorse Dave Bernstein Custom Homes for your building project. He is pleasant, involved, organized and demands customer satisfaction. We have also hired Dave for a garage addition to our home."

  • I highly recommend David.

    "I can say without hesitation that I highly recommend David. With respect to quality of workmanship each of the individual trades who worked on our projects were of the highest quality. Costs and scheduling are always up front and accurate. In terms of dealing personally with David I have had a fabulous experience. He is ALWAYS available for consultation and keeps on top of the job with constant feedback to you the homeowner. He and his crews are trustworthy and polite, not to mention very tidy."

  • More than outstanding.

    "Our experience with David Bernstein Custom Homes and Renovations was more than outstanding and we would have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending David and his crew. Throughout the renovation we felt that David was "on our side" making sure that we had the best quality workmanship at the best price. Ours is an older home, a challenge whenever renovating. David met all the challenges head on and always found solutions to any problems in efficient and cost effective ways. He uses only the best trades, adheres to building codes and best practices and his honesty is above reproach. As always there are slight delays in schedule, these were either our fault as we made changes to the original plans and added to the scope of work or caused by unsuspected problems that always arise in an older home. Had we adhered to the original plan, we have no doubt that everything would have been completed in a timely manner. When David tells you workmen are arriving at a certain time, they are there and David is constantly visiting and supervising the site to ensure all is going to plan. Phone calls and e-mails are promptly answered and it seems that customer satisfaction is of prime importance. This was not our first renovation experience and while we had been happy with our former contractor we have to say that David operated with more professionalism as did his crew. We hope you have the opportunity to work with David, we are sure you will be more than satisfied."

  • We are very happy with David and look forward to working with him again.

    "David, in short is an excellent contractor. From the start of our project, he has been on top of levery detail and has offered advice and help on our decisions, big or small. Despite his age, he brings years of experience to the table and has the energy and commitment of someone that lives by the fact that you are only as good as your last job. He only works with the best trades and they have stayed within the schedule since the start. Any delay has been due to weather, material delay or lack of clarity on our part. If there is any delay, he communicates right away. His communication is seriously amazing. We had issues with the city and our architect, so we worked together 4 months before we even started the project on June and he was very supportive during that process. Any budget over runs were due to the architectural plans and these were discussed and agreed to. He is very driven and does not accept sub-par work, this is from the framing, the insulation, the foundation and other things that are not seen. He builds beyond what the building code specifies, as what is specified is the minimum standard. Honestly, we are very happy with David and look forward to working with him again.

  • Look no further than Dave Bernstein.

    "If you were considering some home renovations look no further than Dave Bernstein, you are in excellent hands. His experience, suggestions, work ethic, attention to detail, personality are simply the best. Here are some points that might explain further."

    • On time, his attention to detail, access to skilled trades, and priority is client satisfaction
    • Trades were polite, punctual, and usually asked if I wanted them to sweep up before they left
    • Easily approachable - no question too foolish and no detail to small
    • Very knowledgeable, often tweaked things himself rather than resending a trade but knew his capabilities
    • Always in touch, most days dropped by for 15 minutes to touch base with trades and client, see quality of work and iron out any issues. Accessible by e-mail or telephone. Most times responded within 10 minutes.
    • No pressure to make job bigger or more costly to client but if asked had a sound knowledge of options
    • If a delay in material or tradesperson, he was able to reschedule something to fill the time and keep on schedule
    • A few weeks after the last detail, he checked in to make sure there was nothing outstanding and that I was satisfied
    • Any change in tradesperson, schedule or delivery of material and he always kept me in the loop

  • Excellent job

    "Dave and his subcontractors did an excellent job building an addition to our house. He started when he said he would and finished when he said he would. In between the start and finish, Dave told us exactly what was going to happen, who would be doing the work and how long each subcontractor would be working. He also seems to have a knack for hiring exceptionally professional treadespeople. Having these guys around in your life as they work was never a problem; in fact, it was quite often a pleasure. Dave responded to every inquiry, he communicated quickly and clearly and he is absolutely transparent with his fees. We have other projects planned for our house and we will call Dave again to do them. Highly recommend Dave and his team."

  • Best group we've hired to do work at our home.

    Dave Bernstein and his team of competent, professional trades people were the best group we've hired to do work at our home. He managed a beautiful basement renovation on time and his billing was very transparent. He also makes the process fun and exciting!! When we decide to build a new home we will hire DB Custom homes for sure."
