TESTIMONIALS

We take great pride in what we do and how we do it. The greatest factor in the completion of a successful project is the relationship that is formed with our clients….


 

"When building our house we were given some recommendations for builders from our architect and we walked through a number of homes to get a feel for the quality of workmanship available. It was clear when looking at these houses that Dan had built quality homes that would last and they stood out from the crowd. Our experience backed this up. Dan had a strong attention to detail and a supporting cast of trades that ensured that the standards were upheld throughout the build. We have now been in our new home for 18 months and the number of deficiencies has been incredibly low, a testament to the quality. We would have no hesitation in recommending Dan and his team to anyone who is looking to build their dream home."

"Dan built our family an excellent house. His attention to detail and quality are second to none. He worked closely with our architect to address issues as they arose during construction. His trade people were top-notch. He was available and responsive to our needs and concerns. He built our house as if it was his own." 

 - Justin and Nicola de Vries


 

"Dan:

I hope this email finds you well. It is coming up to two years since we have been living in our new house.
I wanted to let you know that Nicola and I love living there and appreciate how well the house is built and holding up. Well done and thanks again. "

Dan Platt’s attention to detail and his team of skilled craftsmen have made the quality of my home complement the clean architectural details. He brings with him the people, contacts and knowledge to provide quality throughout every stage of building a home. He readily incorporated what we wanted and guided us when we were not sure. We moved in on the original estimated date and the after-closing follow-up was quick and thorough. We got the home we wanted and more.

Our 4-month renovation included demolition of an existing structure, full basement excavation and a large family room addition, as well as gutting and rebuilding a kitchen and laundry room. The renovation was completed within one week of original schedule. The caliber of your foreman and sub-contractors and their workmanship was top-rate. We especially appreciated your attention to our day-to-day quality of life since we were living in the house as it was being renovated. The setting up of a temporary kitchen and laundry room, as well as security and dust barriers helped us live as free from disruption as possible. We never hesitate to recommend Dan. Thank you so much!

– Sandy and Joe Evers


From day one I was very impressed with how professional Dan was. He was very thorough and detailed with his quote making sure that everything was clear. He took the time needed to ensure that I understood every aspect of budget and scheduling before the actual work began.

In any job, engineering integrity and quality workmanship are always expected and are delivered by Dan and the team he applies to the job. However, a key attribute that sets Dan apart from the rest is his ability to listen to our objectives and translate that into a high quality finished project.

– Ken Miner


Thank you for doing such a super job for us. Everyone just raves about our renovation and the quality of workmanship, and we recommend you at every possible opportunity!

– Tim Root


Your integrity, responsiveness, patience, and understanding through an otherwise stressful 6 months was very much appreciated. We have already recommended you to others!

– Dan & Tracey Snyder


A major renovation during the winter months, with the homeowners remaining in residence, required a great deal of logistical planning and coordination. We were very pleased with the way in which you handled this aspect of the job. The resulting transformation of our home is a credit to the high quality work of your team, and your own hands-on management style.

– David J. Dixon


Your assistance with design, high standards, attention to detail, on-site supervision, and good communications sets you apart. You were always willing to go the extra mile — such as mock ups, pictures, and models — especially when we had trouble visualizing the end result. Your concern for our home and minimizing disruptions was always evident with your emphasis on keeping the job site tidy and cleaned up daily.

– Carol & Mike Clarke


We are most pleased with the quality of work that Dan and his team delivered, on time and on budget. His clear planning and communication ensured that everyone involved was informed and up-to-date. It was a pleasure to work with him and his professional team.

Looking for a Contractor??? You have just found him. Dan Platt we call him Dan the man and his wonderful crew. Their craftsmanship was exceptional. Dan’s schedule for your reno is week by week what will take place and was followed to a tee with no surprises. Thank-you so much Dan. We just love our addition. I would do this again in a heart beat.”

We highly recommend Dan as a fine home builder. He always had our best interests in mind and his word is beyond reproach. He set a high standard for the very skilled group of trades he surrounded himself with. We came in on time and budget and after 2 years in our home the quality is as apparent as the day we moved in. We love our home.”

"Dear Dan:

We are writing to sincerely thank you for the outstanding job you and your team did in building our new home.

We recognize that this build was intricate and in many ways complex however, our expectations were for perfection. Not only did you meet and exceed our expectations but, you did it with precision and a sense of ease that only someone with a habit of such performance can do.

Janice and I know you personally took sincere interest in our project and treated it as if it were your own house. As a result, please do not hesitate to use us as a reference for any of your clients. A small sample of what we experienced was:

  • Absolute organization on your part – from everything from budgets, paperwork, timing and delivery. Your sub-trades always showed up on time, respected our home and delivered perfectly. This is certainly a byproduct of the respect they have for you and Platt Fine Homes.
  • Platt Fine Homes employees are true master-class professionals. Janice, myself and our friends who were exposed to your employees all had the same comments. Your team are true pros at what they do. Even the smallest of tasks were done with care, never did they take a short cut or easy way out and each and every one of them were polite, respectful and took full ownership of the entire project – not just their piece. You are truly very lucky to have a team like this.
  • Problem resolution was easy and painless. We always felt we were always on the same team together. Whenever we ran into a roadblock or issue (fully expected on a project of this scale), it was solved with no drama or complaint. What we liked most, was how your whole team came up with creative solutions to problems other trades struggled to resolve.

When Janice and I decided to build our custom home, we looked at family and friends who had already done the same. Based on their feedback, we braced for tumultuous times, a multitude of problems and frustrations with our builder. We experienced none of that! It was an absolute delight to work with Platt Fine homes.

We couldn’t be happier in our home. Thank-you Dan Platt and Team!

– Dan & Janice Madon


Our home renovation by Dan Platt a few years ago exceeded our expectations! We were rookies at the home renovation game and realize in retrospect, that the best decision we made in our entire project was to have Dan as our general contractor. The value of his professional insight/advice, his "best in class" contractor relationships and his disciplined approach to administering project complexities made what can be a nightmare for some, a pleasurable experience for us. Dan understood our needs and expectations and delivered in every case. Even today, years later, we look at our home finishes and have absolutely no regrets. We are professional project managers ourselves and know excellence when we see it! - we are happy to offer specific references on request!.”

- Ann & Markus Herten


We completed a full home renovation with Platt Fine Homes and have been giving out our highest recommendations for Dan and his team ever since. The quality of their work, attention to detail and professionalism are second to none. All aspects of the project were attended to with the same high quality and standards. The detailed follow through at the end of the project also made the process smooth and ensured that our new home was just as we had hoped..”
