We hired Dirsmith to add a small deck and window to our home in August. It is April and no deck, no window. Do not hire this contractor.

Dirsmith Construction created a new kitchen in our house during the fall of 2009. The entire project went extremely well from demolition to final touches. The extensive work which included electrical, dry walling plumbing, flooring, HVAC, carpentry, and painting was completed on time and on budget with no surprises. The workmen were craftsmen that genuinely cared about quality and took pride in their work. They became invaluable consultants sharing their years of experience as the project progressed. There were countless subtle decisions to be made, and they were there to help my wife and me with every one of them.

Tim began the creative process during the initial meeting. Using his vast database of architectural details and construction experience, he generated design options that were unique to our project. He provided a detailed plan along with rendered digital photos that gave us an idea of how the finished project might look. In addition, Tim assisted with every design decision including paint color. He guided us through the cabinet ordering and granite selection processes. That alone was invaluable. As the project progressed, he presented new design options as they availed themselves. Following Tim??s recommendations, we made changes throughout the project that definitely made the kitchen better. Essentially, Tim envisions a design and he doesn??t rest until he is happy with the final result. Now that??s peace of mind for the home owner. After four full months of using our new kitchen, it keeps getting better every day.

I also hired Dirsmith Construction to perform structural repairs to reinforce the support for a fireplace hearth. Again, I was impressed with their knowledge and craftsmanship. Being a structural engineer, I sketched up a plan detailing how I wanted the work to be done, but I didn??t show it to the worker. Instead, I let him walk me through his ideas for the structural repair while I just listened. His ideas agreed with every detail on my plan down to the last 2x4. I showed him my sketch after he completed the work with his usual quality. I??d hire Dirsmith Construction for any project.

I've worked with Tim and Dirsmith Constuction for over four years, and they've completed a large array of projects for me including: brick paving my driveway, replacing windows and sliding doors, painting, landscaping, repairing my wood deck, powerwashing my deck, installing outside lights, and other smaller jobs. I love that it is "one stop shopping" - with high quality workmen for all areas (electrical, plumbing, carpentry, painting, etc.).
Tim is very knowledgeable and willing to invest the time to creatively problem-solve all issues. He is honest and a pleasure to work with.
I trust the workmen to be in my house alone while I'm at work, making the projects much easier to fit into my schedule.
I would highly recommend them.

Dirsmith Construction did various projects in my home earlier this year -- new insulation, basement remodeling, electric, installed several new windows, etc. The work was very good -- on time, on budget, with no wasted effort. I would trust these guys to work alone in my home -- come think of it, they did. They are considerate and very professional. Highly recommended.

Dirsmith construction has done at least 5 major projects and numerous minor projects on our house. Tim is very creative and the quality of workmanship is very good. The only reason I gave only 4 stars instead of 5 is because they often start and finish well behind schedule.

We hired Dirsmith construction to repipe our house and renovate our master bathroom. Of all of the contractors we talked to, Tim was the only one who was willing to think outside the box (e.g. moving walls, moving HVAC ducting, moving toilet, etc.). Tim's ultimate design took into account everything we asked for. The folks who did the work - Frederico in particular - were absolutely meticulous in their execution. They paid attention to every detail and were very nice and friendly on top of it. What I really appreciated is that everyone at Dirsmith construction takes full advantage of modern technology to stay in the loop. They text each other (and you), they email, they call. Whenever we had a question we could ask anybody and they'd be able to get in touch with the right people and provide an answer within a few hours at most. Anytime you're dealing with an ill-defined and novel project, scheduling is going to be fluid (we're not talking 15 minute oil changes here), but Tim was very good about keeping us informed of schedule changes and delays and the whole project went VERY smoothly.
