I recently had the pleasure of working with Ryan from Dencal Construction on a basement construction project, and I couldn't be happier with the results. From the initial consultation to the final touches, Ryan exhibited a high level of professionalism and expertise, ensuring that every aspect of the basement construction was handled with care and precision.

Ryan was attentive to my needs and preferences, taking the time to understand my vision for the space. One of the standout qualities was his excellent communication throughout the project. Ryan kept me informed at every stage, providing updates on progress and addressing any concerns promptly. This transparency made the entire experience stress-free and enjoyable.

The craftsmanship displayed in the finished basement is truly exceptional. The attention to detail is evident in every corner, from the perfectly executed flooring to the meticulously installed fixtures. Ryan's commitment to quality is commendable, and it's clear that he takes pride in his work.

Not only did Ryan meet deadlines, but he also exceeded my expectations in terms of functionality and aesthetics. The newly constructed basement has added significant value to my home and has become a favorite gathering space for family and friends.

I wholeheartedly recommend Ryan from Dencal Construction for any basement project. His professionalism, communication, and top-notch craftsmanship set him apart, making him an excellent choice for anyone looking to enhance their living space. I am grateful for the positive experience and the beautiful basement Ryan has created for me.

We hired DenCal to do a remodel of the entire first floor of our home. Ryan and Shawn and all of the their sub-contractors did great work. They took out 3 walls and opened up our first floor. They also added air condiitioning to our home (previously had hot water heat). The HVAC has changed our house completely, great to be cool when you want to be and warm when you need to be. The finished product is just what we wanted and we could not be happier. If you need a remodel or a new home DenCal is who you should call. Quality work and great people to deal with.

(Dencal Construction) remodeled our kitchen into not only a pristine and beautiful place to be, but in such a timely and professional manner. Then we asked them back to remodel our one and only bathroom. Again, Ryan and Shawn exceeded our expectations in quality, but again in a timely manner! Such an easy transition with these guys. They have become our go-to guys and have now created a back patio dream by turning a window into a sliding door leading to a soon to be back yard. We most definitely will be using Dencal. Truly trustworthy, quality driven, professional guys! Thank you Ryan and Shawn!

We were in need of a big kitchen remodel that included removing some walls and got Ryan's number from a colleague of his. He came over fairly quickly to meet with us and gave us some helpful suggestions before getting all the info he needed for a quote. We're very happy with everything that was done. He and his subs did a great job and cleaned up after themselves. One great thing that he does is give you a worst case price and timeline. When tearing into old walls something will inevitably go wrong so not having a surprise expense really helps when you have a budget. Ryan and Shawn actually gave us options mid construction to save some money if they thought it was a waste and they also got done 2 weeks earlier than expected. We'll be using them for any future remodel projects.
