I cant recommend this contractor enough. They are very professional, experience and clean. We had Nate and his team in stall to large designed skylight installations. The scope of this project was more then just installing a skylight. They installed three separate ones in each opening, along with beautiful wood detail. Their idea! They turned out better then we hoped because of the outstanding quality and advise of DP Builders. Their team was always prompt, considerate and neat. The final result of their work has added so much needed light and value to our home. We cant say enough positive comments, if you have any home improvement projects call them.

We couldn't be happier with our recent kitchen remodel executed through DP Builders. Specifically, we worked with Birkin who was on top of everything from the start. We met with him on a Friday, shared our vision for the space and had the kitchen design in our hands on the following Tuesday. In less than a week, we were placing cabinet orders! The whole project operated just as efficiently. And most importantly, they finished within the timeline quoted and within the budget quoted. Does that even happen these days?! What I liked about DP Builders is that they worked every weekday from 8:00 am-4:30 pm and did nearly everything themselves without having to hire outside professionals for things like the paint, tiling, electricity, floor replacement, etc. This kept the project moving at a brisk pace without any gaps or holdups in things getting accomplished each day. Birkin and Rony are professional, trustworthy and great at what they do! If you move forward with your next remodel, choose them! You will be in good hands!
Ricky B. in Vallejo, CA
DP Builders is a highly professional and more importantly a trust worthy company. They have courtious and professional trades men. The end result was more than we were hoping for. We wold definitely hire the company again and recommend them to everyone.We would hire Dave Penley (Owner) and DP builders again without hesitation!
Ken W. in Fairfield, CA
Dave was prompt for our first meeting and sent his estimate as promised. The price was very fair. His workers showed up on time, introduced themselves and promptly went to work. Everything was cleaned up as they went, and the work was excellent.

We found DP Builders on Home Advisor and are thrilled we did. They just completed a major remodel and addition to our home that involved taking the house all the way down to the studs in every room and completely reconfiguring the home inside and out. Dave Penley is a consummate professional, excellent communicator and a joy to work with, so we felt like we had a partner through the entire 6 month project. He and his entire crew (Nate, Birkin, Robbie, Rony, Luis, Matt...and Moose) worked tirelessly and were courteous, respectful and caring. He engaged and meticulously managed the best subcontractors as needed. They always showed up as expected and the entire work site was cleaned up every night. If you engage this company, count yourself extremely fortunate. We miss them now that the project is over, but we are enjoying our beautiful home and deck - just the way we pictured it.
Lori G. in Fairfield, CA
We have never done a remodel before, and Dave, the owner, was patient and walked us through it. He listened to our needs and helped us plan and execute the perfect kitchen. His crew, Birkin, Robbie, Rony, and Luis were excellent! They were on time, trust worthy, hard working, and very professional, and efficient.. We are planning to do more remodeling and will definitely use this again for other projects. I LOVE my kitchen! This is a company that my family and I highly recommend!
Denise G. in Napa, CA
Our neighbors kindly recommended D P Builders to us. We did further research on Home Advisor and found glowing 5 star reviews. Well we are pleased to say they have very much lived up to their reputation after they built us the nicest Granny flat. Dave and his team are most professional in their work and and are such a nice bunch of people. They arrive on time and clean up before they leave every night. So thanks Dave, Nathan, Birkin, Robbie, Louie and Ronny for a job very well done! ( Special mention to Moose!! )
Patrick V. in Sonoma, CA
This company is second to none in terms of price, quality of workmanship, timeliness, and adherence to details. The owner went out of his way to insure I had the right additions to my home. The whole company is outstanding!
Jeffrey I. in Pleasant Hill, CA
We found them to be extremely professional, friendly and courteous at all times. They arrived on time each day. Birkin was our lead contractor on the job and was a pleasure to work with. Rony worked with Birkin and is a very hard working young man and made sure the jobsite was picked up and that their equipment was organized and out of our way at the end of each work day. He is a good asset to the company. It was a pleasure working with these two men. We highly recommend this company.
Meaghan C. in Fairfield, CA
We completely remodeled our master bathroom, moving two walls, removing two walls, and installing brand new plumbing, electrical, a stand-alone tub and tiled shower. Overall I was very impressed with Birkin and Rony's timeliness and workmanship. They said they would be at the house by 8 and sure enough, and 7:50 they were out front of the house every day of the job and stayed until 4:30 or sometimes later to complete their daily work. I couldn't have asked for more reliability on their part. The estimate was spot on with what we were charged, minus one minor addition due to an unforeseen floor problem in our crawlspace. Again, Birkin was able to do that quickly and efficiently and the price was fair. I will be contacting them for any future renovations we have on our home, and recommending them to friends as well. Thanks Birkin and Rony!
Nancy O. in Martinez, CA
I wanted a closet turned into a kitchenette and thought it would be easy to put in a prefab IKEA unit. Turned out not to fit. Birkin suggested a more complicated, built in counter, sink, shelves. I agreed it would look much nicer but I really didn't want to go that far over budget. Birkin said that if I bought the materials, he would do it for the same price!!! I am thrilled! It is perfect for renting out my downstairs, now. Don't hire anyone else-- this guy's the best
Alice K. in Sonoma, CA
The owner Dave, his foreman Birkin and the whole team are what you hope a general contractor will be in terms of managing the process from A to Z including permitting. They were courteous and professional in our interactions, arrived on the job site consistently and on time and persevered to a timely completion. They were as considerate as possible in minimizing the disruption of the work (i.e., momentary suspension of water or electrical power) and as clean as possible. An added advantage was that they do the plumbing and electrical in house making for a more seamless process with fewer subcontractors involved. They were even responsive to some minor questions and concerns AFTER they had left the job sight and received payment which is a testament to their pride of workmanship and accountability. My only suggestion would be that they be even more detailed in their contract about the owner vs. contractor responsibilities for materials and the scope of service so false assumptions can be avoided.
Edward S. in Fairfield, CA
DP Builders is one of Home Advisor recommended contractors for building decks. Contacted Dave, explained that we are looking to rebuild a deck, he said that his associate, Birkin would contact me and make an appointment. Birkin showed up at the appointed time, took measurements and paid attention to my vision and suggested some enhancements, he showed us some picture of decks DP Builders had completed, and would have a proposal in a couple of days. We felt confident based on our dialog from the initial contact through the proposal phase and gave the them the OK to proceed with the contract. When the material arrived, I was impressed with the quality of the wood. Once they started, the job, it was completed in an expeditious manner, the crew kept the yard clean at the end of each day, which resulted with a gorgeous deck, cover and concrete cooking area, plus additional electrical outlets. We highly recommend DP Builders and would not hesitate to contact them for future jobs.
Karen F. in Vallejo, CA
The repair was actually for a bathroom floor that was sinking due to water damage. New beams, bathtub and tile were installed. Thank you so much to Birken for the fair estimate and timely repair.
Marilyn M. in Saint Helena, CA
Exceptional service. Birkin Fennell gave me a prompt bid, an excellent installation and an easy conversation about my project. Some of the best pros ever. Marilyn M.
Alexis W. in Vallejo, CA
My experience working with Dave, Birkin, and DP builders as a whole was by far the best contractor experience that I have had. From the beginning Dave listened to what we wanted and was able to make our limited spaced kitchen come to life. The entire team was very professional, clean, and on time with the completion of the project, even after I slowed them down by stepping on a wet tile that they placed (whoops!). I highly highly recommend DP Builders, and I look forward to working with them again in the future.
Leilani G. in Calistoga, CA
DP Builders was an excellent company to replace my 30 year old rotting deck. They worked diligently throughout the rainy days and got it done in a very timely manner. It turned out very beautiful and is an asset to my Bed and Breakfast Inn. The guests love it and the view across the Napa Valley toward Sterling Winery is unobstructed. The hog wire was suggested by the builders and it turned out to be a beautiful asset to the project. I strongly recommend this builder. They worked efficiently daily and the deck turned out to be beautiful and sturdy. Thanks, DP Builders for your expertise.
William D. in Vallejo, CA
They were easy to work with and understood what we wanted for the outcome. They protected everything and cleaned up each day when finished for the day. They scheduled their work for the least inconvenience to us. The quality of work was excellent and the value of work for the cost was also excellent.
Indira M. in Fairfield, CA
My Bathroom project is materialized perfectly to my dreams and my budget by Dave and Birkin from DP Builders! Prior to calling Dave, I had really bad experience with some merchants and on top of it, my close friend described her bad experience after she committed with a vendor who promised to do the kitchen and left unfinished half way! After frustrating experience with merchants giving me exaggerated amounts and who wanted to do their way and not paying attention to my suggestions about how to make may bathroom more spacious and functional I thought I would just drop the idea of remodeling my bathroom. Deep down I felt disappointed that I am not getting anywhere with this project. But one Friday night, after work, while I was googling I found Home Advisor website. It gave several names of contractors under Bath Remodel, but I happened to come across Daveâ€™s DP Builders among all, with excellent reviews and five star rating. Me being always a perfectionist and skeptical wanted to go only with five star rated companies, I thought I would call DP Builders. That was after business hours and with not much hope that someone would call me I left message reluctantly. As if someone heard my desperate need, Dave called me back soon after I left msg. He gave me appointment right next morning and came right on time knocking. I told him I am really on strict budget and my main criteria is to make my bathroom more spacious and functional, which means he had to demolish couple of walls, build new shower with a seat, tiled floor and tiles up to ceiling in shower with accent ,vanity, toilet etc. He understood right away what I am looking for and proposed with a written estimate. Dave is very professional and old school guy. If any of you understand what I mean by thatâ€¦ He wrote down a detailed estimate of costs, materials and labor and options available and how much that would cost and presented it. I was very impressed to see finally a merchant actually breaking down everything so neatly and presenting in a professional manner as opposed to people who would come and look with an intention to make certain amount of money (an awful lot of exaggerated sums) they quoted and would never write down the specifics on paper other than saying the amount they are aiming to make at the project (no matter the size of the project), I was so excited to see his proposal and the specifics he would do matched to what I am planning to do with the bathroom. I hired him and he fixed the date for my project even though it is the busiest time of the year and before holidays that too! Dave is also very good in giving good suggestions for your needs. He accompanied me to purchase all the things I needed more than twice. His teammate Birkin was such a pleasure to work with. I had the most pleasant experience with Birkin from day number one. He is punctual, always in communication with me. Just as Dave and Birkin promised, my bath room was done in a week and half. I really recommend DP Builders for anyone who is thinking of remodeling their bath, kitchen or whatever project in your home or office. I am so happy I found a company like DP Builders through Home Advisor website. Go for them â€“ No doubt you will be" Happy"
Paul R. in Vallejo, CA
DP Builders did a great job remodeling two bathrooms and opening up spaces within the house. They were a pleasure to work with. They are as customer friendly a business as I have ever found. Experienced, expert, friendly, patient and a good sense of humor.
Joseph R. in Vallejo, CA
Dave Penley and Burken Fennell along with their crew did a fantastic job of remodeling our kitchen. First, they took the time to help my wife and I select new cabinets and granite countertops. They were very attentive and patient in helping us re-design our kitchen according to our specifications. Dave provided a detailed itemized estimate of the cost of the project. He also provided a computer generated drawing of our new kitchen which was really impressive. The project only took three weeks from start to finish and we are totally happy with our beautiful new kitchen! We would definitely recommend DP builders and will hire them again when we plan to remodel our bathrooms. Thanks to Dave and his team for making or dream a reality.
Paul P. in Fairfield, CA
On time. Affordable. Easy to deal with. Quality work. What's not to like? Oh, and Dave answers the phone.
Rex B. in Napa, CA
Dave, Nathan and their team did a great job for us. They installed a 1/2 bath, opened up a wall and installed doors on barn rails, and completed several other remodeling projects. They were very flexible and collaborative with us, reasonably priced, and provided us quality finished products. We plan to use them again for any future projects, and we would highly recommend them.
Ron W. in Napa, CA
D P Builders did everything they promised and more. It all came in ahead of schedule with first class work. Not the cheapest but worth every penny.
Jim B. in Vallejo, CA
Birkin Fennell was the lead on the project. We had a lot of dry rot on the house and needed much of the woodwork replaced before painting the house. The quality of his work and his attention to detail were outstanding. I highly recommend him for any project you are considering. He and his partner left the property extremely clean - removing all debris and rotted materials.
Cathy K. in Fairfield, CA
I feel very fortunate to have had Dave and DP builders install my new deck. Not only were they professional, timely, and affordably priced, their recommendations and esthetics were on point. The finished product exceeded my expectations. It is my intention to hire them again shortly to remodel my baths and construct another deck in my backyard. It is so wonderful to see such quality work. I strongly recommend them.
Raymond H. in Fairfield, CA
I don't think you could hire a more professional outfit than DP Builders. We had a short delay, that was beyond anyone's control, but once the project was under way they didn't stop until the job was completed. Mr. Penley when above and beyond what was necessary and I couldn't be happier with the results. Next time I need a job done and done right I know who to call.
Lance W. in Fairfield, CA
DP Builders built our deck beautifully. Dave and Birkin were on site when they said they would be, their crew cleaned up each day and completed the project quickly and efficiently. Having dealt with a lot of contractors, both residential and commercial, over the years, I can confidently say that DP Builders is one of the best I have ever dealt with and have no problem recommending them to anyone looking for quality work at a fair price. I plan to have them do more work for us as we update our home.
Judy B. in Fairfield, CA
April 2016: I can't say enough GREAT things about Dave and Nathan and Crew! I am so lucky to have them! Dave makes us feel so comfortable and secure with all the hard decisions that have to be made. The quality is unbelievable! These guys are so good! Communication, perfection and pleasing the customer are definitely DP Builders highest priorities! Thank you!
Marilynn B. in Fairfield, CA
The DP owner and his employees were great! Not only did they do a fantastic job in demolishing a 1966 bathroom and replacing it with one that is modern and accessible for a family member with a disability, they made the process fantastic for the home owner and her family members. As the coordinator for the family's renovation of the bathroom, I was impressed with the owner and his employees who kept me informed of the work done at each phase of the project. They explained everything in detail and listened to my suggestions. I found out early that I could depend upon their design and technical expertise for the project. The project took approximately 9 days to complete as the owner had indicated and the employees showed up on time each day and worked steadily throughout the day. I might add that they were so friendly and considerate that the family and I miss their presence. If the project had lasted any longer we would have adopted them as honorary members of our family. In addition to doing a great job, the owner assured me that if I had any concerns that I could contact him immediately and any problem would be solved post haste. We had one minor issue and he was true to his word. In addition to doing a great job on the project, the employees cleaned up after finishing each day. The bathroom is not just functional, but absolutely beautiful. The family member with the disability is still raving about the new bathroom's beauty and how easy it is for her to use the new shower and the other bathroom facilities. Because DP did such a fine job on the bathroom, I contracted with them to reface the living room fireplace with tile, install a new mantle and correct a problem with the hearth. DP's employees on both projects are fantastic at tiling. As I told the owner, I not only loved their work, but their prices for the two projects. In summary, I would hire them again in a minute as there is another project that the family and I believe needs doing in the future.
Mary H. in Santa Rosa, CA
Our experience was very positive! Dave is patient, kind, honest, and efficient. We had 2 bathrooms completely remodeled in a house built in 1973. The new bathrooms are wonderful! The job sight was kept clean and organized. The workman ship was excellent and we are hoping to hire DP Builders for more projects!
Clayton B. in Napa, CA
Dave, Nathan, and crew were hired to demo our old wood and brick deck and build us a new redwood deck. The quoted price was less than other contractors and they were able to start the project right away. These guys were real professionals, using laser levels to even the deck in progress. The job was finished on time and our new deck looks great! My wife and I would absolutely recommend DP Builders for any home improvement project. We gave them a 5 star rating and if you check other reviews almost everyone else gave them this highest rating. DP Builders is worth 5 stars. We will contact them first for any other home improvements we need.
Ronald D. in Vallejo, CA
I contacted David about building me a brand new Redwood deck, he was at my home the next day to give me an estimate. He quoted me a price which was less than the first contractor that came out to my house, plus his quote included a Redwood grade of wood that was one step better than the first contractor's estimate, ...wow! Lower price, and a better grade of wood. The work began, and it progressed quite quickly. I was amazed at how fast the deck came together. After the agreed work began, I had a few changes to the original plan in mind. That was not a problem for David, ...he asked me what changes I wanted make, ...and so it was done, easy breezy! At the end of the construction project, I was left with a beautiful 30 by 19 foot Redwood deck, ...I love my deck!
Marsha P. in Benicia, CA
Dave and his crew are the BEST! Dave immediately returned my phone call, came to my house, dropped off samples, gave us a copy of his insurance cert, and followed up on a regular basis. His work is VERY professional and the jobsite was always clean! I cannot say enough, and would highly recommend DP Builders for any projects you may have.
homeowner in Sonoma, CA
Impeccable, outstanding work. Dp builders remodeled, almost rebuild our home. Dave listened to our needs and ideas, and offered constructive, and money saving advice all through the project. Everything met out high quality expectations with attention to details and symmetry. He went extra miles to make our house ready couple weeks earlier than the original deadline so we could move in. The tile works in two bathrooms are beautiful and superb. The open kitchen concept have made a great environment for entertainment and parties, and the large redwood deck surrounding the house have made our visitors speechless. The entire crew including Nathan, Luise, Robbie, ... are very trustworthy and professional. In simple words Dp Builders work is very professional and skillful.
Denise B. in Cloverdale, CA
A contractor who understands customer service! Dave does it right- from his quick response to my job request, his clear to understand bid, clean job site, and on time/on budget performance- I will not use another contractor ever again. He has spoiled me completely. My bathroom turned out better than I could have hoped. He had great ideas and I'm glad I used him.
Mike H. in Napa, CA
Very high quality work for a great price. They completely remodeled 2 bathrooms and put a deck off the master bedroom. Could not have turned out better. The bathrooms look like something you'd find in a high end hotel. When we hired them we had an aggressive timeline and they nailed it. They didn't charge extra for the rush either. Dave, the owner was very involved and did a lot of the tile work. His son Nate is awesome too. The deck off the bedroom was done in 2 days over a weekend. 2 of their other employees, Robbie and Louie were also great. Very friendly and didn't mind our 2 little dogs. One day they were at the house working, and they called to let me know a party tent we had just put up was being damaged by the wind. They took a timeout from the hired work to tie down the tent and even took pictures and sent them to us. They did a full site clean up every day when they were finished. We couldn't be happier how the projects turned out. Next time we have work needed on the house, DP Builders is the only contractor I will use.
Monica B. in Benicia, CA
Dave was quick in calling me and once he came to look at the project he gave me a bid within 3 days. The price he gave me for the project only went over by $300.00 and that was because I had requested additional work that was not on the first bid; otherwise it would have come in lower (hardly ever happens on home projects) Dave put in a new kitchen floor and bathroom floor along with a new shower that was a kit I had purchased before the project. It was not easy and with every obstacle that came up Dave figured a way around it and made it work. It was hard to find someone to do the project and I am very happy Dave took on the project. I am so happy to have a beautiful kitchen and bathroom and I would recommend DP builders and I would hire them again.
Simon G. in Emeryville, CA
I got a proposal from DP Builders around 4/2014 for the construction of a bedroom, a bathroom and miscellaneous home improvements in my Napa home. DP builders were very responsible, professional and did an on time on budget project and a great job. I have been in the design and construction of hightech facilities for over 40 years, based on my extensive experience, I can say without a doubt, that they will do for you a great job.
Patti A. in Rohnert Park, CA
They were great.
