I will get into the details below, but I want to lead off by saying I would highly recommend DCR Building and Remodeling for any home project! Me and my wife needed a full and a half bath remodeled, including replacement of all of the drain pipes due to their age, as well as wear and tear over the years. We gave Dave Rugato a call back in the May timeframe and he promptly came out to take a look at the project. He then came back to us to meet us in person to go over the quote, the details of the project, etc. We were comfortable with the price, as well as his approach to do things the right way, always preaching quality, so we signed on for the project. Dave and his team started the project in a timely fashion. We had a house full of a dog, plus three little kids (6, 4, 1) so cleanliness and having folks in the house I could trust was of utmost importance. My kids would look forward to Mark coming to the house to begin work every single day. He even had my son lay a few tiles in the shower, which my 6-year old still points out are the ones he put there! Pretty awesome stuff. Dave and his team members (led by Mark) did a great job with the demolition, making everything fast and being sure they cleaned up at the end of each day. Vacuuming for nails, putting the toilet back at the end of every working day, were little things that went a lot way to helping us not have to vacate the house while we had both bathrooms being done simultaneously. Everything came together timely and it was great to see the whole thing to take shape over time! Needless to say, the full and half bath are perfect and exactly what we wanted! â ¨DCR Building and Remodeling did two full bathrooms for our in-laws, as well as another full bull bathroom for a friend of ours in town, and the experience was just as positive as ours. We will certainly have DCR Building and Remodeling back for a future project. Thank you for our amazing new bathrooms and for having a fantastic crew that truly knows how to work around a family.

We needed a total renovation of an existing in-law apartment to become handicapped accessible. It was a fairly large project since the space had to be completely gutted and redesigned. The project went very well and we were extremely pleased with the quality of work done by DCR Building and Remodeling. Dave was always available to answer our questions and the project was done on time and budget. The installation of the handicapped accessible bathroom was especially challenging. There were 5 doorways including the bathroom entering to the same hall and everyone of them had a different height floor. Dave and his crew did a fantastic job of leveling all the floors so the Wedi waterproof flooring in the bathroom worked properly. It is obvious from their work that they are highly skilled and very detailed oriented. I would hire DCR again without hesitation.

Dave has done both small and large projects for us over the last 10 years including a complete kitchen renovation. Dave has a great attitude and is honest and fair. We especially like working with him because he is detail oriented, explains things thoroughly and above all is very patient. His work is excellent.

I was looking to hire a contractor to add a bathroom in my Basement. Dave of DCR showed up when he said he would and worked with me to come up with a plan for the bathroom. He gave an excellent price and began work when he said he would. During the build, problem arose that Dave handled professionally and with patience. He helped us figure the problems out and his recommendation were spot on! The finished job was above our expectations. A true professional that works with the homeowner to build the best product he can. I highly recommend you consider DCR for your next home improvement job.

DCR built my dental office which is now D2 Dental Associates of Malden, in 2007. The build out was very complex. The drawings were based on imperfect measures, and the designer's very beautiful design.
David Rugato simplified the design and corrected the measurements. This build out resulted in years of joy and complements. The dentists who bought my practice immediately fell in love with the space.
I have seen other of DCR's projects. I highly recommend DCR construction for any kind of project.
