“We were thrilled with the quality of TDS’s work. Whenever something unforeseen came up it was always handled with thoughtfulness, integrity, and a good solution, not just a quick or easy fix. We were also very pleased with the level of communication and patience throughout. We look forward to working with them again soon.”


“Top notch staff. It couldn’t have gone more smoothly. Working with you has been a pleasure. We are extremely satisfied with our transformed kitchen.”

Happy Customer

“We have had TDS do everything from a major kitchen addition to an energy audit and an insulation upgrade. We have also had them tackle a leaky old roof that others had tried to fix to no avail. TDS fixed it on their first try and will continue to keep our home in good repair for years to come. The staff are great and I would highly recommend them for any job large or small.”
