- Veronica H.
we are very pleased with the quality of the workmanship, the professionalism of the contractors, and the materials themselves. Everyone was thorough, punctual, and honored every requests. The two Dave's were true, respectful craftsmen and fantastic! We would definitely use Tony and his team again as they were all great!
"Would not hesitate to recommend CDWI..."
- Bruce S.
Tony, the owner of CDW responded quickly to our e-mail, made an early appointment to visit us, and appeared at the appointed time. He spent time getting to know us and our house, listened closely to what we wanted, floated some ideas of his own (which were better than what we had in mind), and told us he would have plans for us "soon." "Soon" was an understatement -- he moved quickly to put together plans that we loved.
"People you are glad to be working with..."

Custom Design Works remodeled my kitchen, downstairs half bath, hall and utility room. This involved new tile flooring, backsplash, reconditioning of kitchen cabinets, installation of new appliances, new lighting, granite countertops, painting and restaining of trim. I was most impressed with the subcontractors. They were all people you were happy to welcome into your home. The finish carpenter and the tile people were so good that we are using Custom Design Works for another project that is now underway.
"We are so happy with our experience..."
- Micael R.
Initial visit to the main office was a great experience. We were able to pick cabinets, flooring, appliances and accessories.Contractor immediately drafted plans and submitted them for our review/approval. Existing patio and roof was carefully removed. Patio flooring was saved for later use. Contracting crew was attentive and helped us understand the demolition process. All workers were on time and very professional throughout each phase of the project.Final touches of project included placement of original patio flooring on the outside for a beautiful accented walkway. They let use know when each phase was to begin and end.
"We needed a lot of work done to update our home..."
- John H.
Having considered 3 companies, we decided that Tony Collins' ideas and design stood out as the best and they excited us from the start. As work progressed, some minor needed repairs were found and were taken care of quickly and professionally; the crew truly went "above and beyond" to be sure that the house would be in good shape when the project was done.
