"Tim and his crew beautifully rebuilt our house after its interior was completely destroyed by a furnace fire. Dealing with Tim, his great crew, and Missy in the office was the easiest aspect of our entire ordeal in the aftermath of the fire. Everyone in the Doane crew were prompt, professional, thorough, and were extremely responsive to questions and concerns.

Tim completely gutted the entire house, reframed the first floor, eliminated any remaining smoke odors, and rebuilt our entire interior. It is apparent that Tim and his builders take pride in delivering high quality work. Tim has a great eye for details and was able to understand our style and ultimately hand us back our house with its original character in-tact rather than just building out a bland end product. While the house turned out beautifully on the surface I am equally happy with everything “behind the scenes”. The level of thought and quality of work that was put in behind the walls is equal to what is visible on the surface. I know there were no corners cut on structure, plumbing, electrical, insulation or HVAC which gives me great peace of mind as a home owner and for my family.

I could not be more happy with choosing Doane Builders as our contractor, they will be our first call when we have any new building projects."

"Tim Doane and his staff did such a professional job building our house that we asked him seven years later to put on an extensive kitchen addition. In both cases, Tim's workmanship was excellent and he did both projects on schedule. We have received many compliments over the years on the quality of work and attention to detail that is seen in our house. We did not know anything about building a house until we met Tim and in both projects it was a wonderful experience that we would gladly experience it again."

We are exceedingly pleased with our remodeling experience with Tim and his team. Having dealt with other contractors and builders in the past, this experience was on a far superior level. From the design phase to multiple adjustments "on the fly," they could not have been more professional and accommodating. We will definitely utilize Tim and his team for our future projects.

"From site selection, finding an architect, choosing materials, and throughout the entire design and construction process, Tim's guidance and experience was instrumental. We enjoyed interacting with both his own craftsmen and his chosen subcontractors, all of whom provided skilled and professional service. Any problems that arose were dealt with efficiently and to our satisfaction. To this day, we continue to receive compliments on the construction quality of our home, and we are always pleased to highly recommend Doane Builders."
