We moved into a new house and were on a time crunch to do some much needed renovations before our baby arrived. Chris and Frank provided us a quick and fair estimate, as well as a detailed list of everything we needed to purchase for the renovation. They were both extremely helpful throughout the process and explained everything in sufficient detail throughout. They were also very flexible with us when we changed our minds a bit during the process. The quality of their work and the subcontractors that they provided for the job was excellent! We had several complicated design choices that we wanted implemented and they were able to accommodate us with no issues. It was great working with CAD throughout the renovation. Renovations are always a headache but CAD made is an enjoyable and quick experience. I would highly recommend CAD to anyone who is considering renovations.
We were planning to convert our unfinished basement into a Man Cave/Sports Bar. Our daughter as well as her in-laws had extensive work done by CAD Construction on their houses. After seeing their construction and hearing their recommendations, we knew that we wanted CAD to help us turn our unfinished basement into a Man Cave/Sports Bar.
We presented our wish list to Chris, and he put together a proposal for our review that included: ceiling and walls painted; main wall shiplap and columns and beams covered in wood; carpeted floor and stairs (2 flights); custom-made built-in Sports Bar; a half bath; a pantry; a lot of storage space; gaming and poker areas.
Chris came back to us with final designs that incorporated our wish list and included his recommendations. The proposal was spot on and approved.
Frankie took over the project and construction began. We found Frankie to be dedicated, knowledgeable and an excellent craftsman as well as a great project manager. He had to manage the schedules of many teams such as framing, plumbing, electrical, sheet rocking and painting to successfully move the project forward and stay on schedule. Frankie’s experience helped to solve issues and make modifications to the design. He kept us informed of his weekly plans and continued to work with us on suggested revisions.
Chris made the payment process very understandable and manageable. We always knew what we were paying for and when the payments were due.
Both Chris and Frankie treated us as valued customers. Their approach was simple, keep the customer happy and complete the project as if it was for their homes.
In summary, CAD exceeded our expectations, and we are so proud to show off our new Man Cave!
They earned a 10 out of 10 in all areas of the project!
We highly recommend CAD Construction.

As promised, I’m sharing our CAD Construction testimonial. Hopefully, this answers questions on your inquire and feel free to share in any marketing materials or on your website.
What can we say? Working with Chris Daunno and the team at CAD Constuction was a pleasure.
We were connected with Chris via our realtor and after acceting bids from multiple general contractors as well as individual contractos we selected CAD Construction. Our project involved taking down walls, full kitchen remodel, bathroom remodels, painting, lighting and installing hardwaood flooring in almost every room in the house. and lots of cosmetic updates thourout the home.
The CAD team worked extremely efficiently front start to finish, holding tight to the proposed schedule and updating us frequently and effectively. Chris was an excellent communicator, manager, and partner to us throughout the renovation, which included a number of appliance delays related to the pandemic. That being said, everything under Chris’ remit was executed on schedule.
We highly recommend and are eager to work with Chris & the team on our next project. Likely an upstairs addition a few years down the line. Happy to speak with you if you are interested in understanding more about our selection process, how working with CAD Construction helped us avoid some big mistakes and if helpful some examples of the exceptional work they’ve done in our home.
Dear Chris & Frank,
Thank you so much for helping us out on our finished basement project. From the first meeting, you guys showed clear communication, efficient work habits, and no surprises. The project ran as planned and what you said you were going to do you did. Gerry and I feel you guys went above and beyond with your service. Even though I signed off on the railing system in advance, when I didn’t like it, you had it changed at no added costs to us. All the guys were professional, wearing masks and doing Covid precautions. We really appreciate your help with eh project and plan to use you on our future kitchen renovation.
I wanted to reach out to you and tell you how extremely happy I am with the care and craftmanship that was put into the recent kitchen and bathroom remodel you completed for me.
You guys did an unbelievable job and completed everything, if not more, than you said you would. Your quality of construction clearly stands for itself and Frank did a great job with installation. Frank tracked everything that needed to be completed and, in the end, I did not have one item for my end punch list as Frank was always on top of it. The job was completed right on time and I can honestly say I do not have any complaints about anything in the work or the process.
I’m glad I went through the design-build kitchen experience. Pricing was up front and I loved how you tracked what was given verses what was included. You even told me when several high hats that were included in the kitchen were not needed and therefore offered to put in my office at no additional cost as they were included in the original contract. All trades you brought in were all very professional and neat and did unbelievable jobs. I have had several people see the work and say they wish they would have used you when they had done work. I will be recommending you to anyone that is looking to have work done and am extremely happy with everything.
The process has been smooth and you and Frank have been a pleasure to deal with throughout. Thanks for your hard work and determination through a worldwide pandemic. Who could have imagined? But everyone was respectful and adhered to all precautions to keep everyone safe while continuing the project. You guys got it done! And we are grateful and appreciative!
P.S. We are going to miss seeing Frankie almost daily. Teddy our son has even started trying to feed him and refers to him as “his friend”.
Chris, it has been 18 months since you enclosed an outdoor, second-floor porch for us to expand our daughter’s bedroom and construct a new bathroom. We remember well your team’s professionalism and expert craftsmanship. Looking at our 150 year-old house from the outside, you can’t tell that what’s there now is an addition. We’re thrilled with the work, and even more so, we’re grateful for your responsiveness after the job was done. When we had a problem with the steam shower unit more than a year after the work was done, you advocated for us with the supplier and we had a new unit, free, within days. We were very lucky that a friend recommended you to us and we are now proud to recommend you, without hesitation, to our friends.
Thanks for your service with our addition project. It was the biggest project we have faced and Lynn and I are both very happy with the final results. During the construction you showed leadership, a positive attitude, and lots of energy. Your collaborative style and shared ideas from previous jobs kept us moving in the right direction anytime we contemplated changes to the plan. We appreciated your clear and continuous communication and the job site was left clean at the end of each day. We are happy to recommend CAD Construction in the future.

Chris and frank,
I know we are not done yet, but I wanted to thank you both for all of your hard work. Frank you have been fantastic. I really appreciate all of your hard work and the answering the constant questions I had. Chris thank you for your ideas and working with me on the billing and administration. We love what we have now, it has been fantastic. We had a party for Darby our one year old and about 30 parents from the area saw the space and loved it. So hopefully they will think of CAD Construction when the time comes for them to upgrade. I would be happy to write something more formal for your newsletter and feel free to use these pics or come and take some of your own for your records. Please thank Sam as well.

Most importantly, you and your team maintain your scheduled activities of events.
