We are discrete. We are perfectionist and we love what we do.  Our work-ethic is the reason we have so many return clients.  Our process begins with a consultation of what each client would like to accomplish and then followed up by a detailed proposal or scope of work.

Once a project is given a green light we do our best to complete it in the timeliest manor with the least intrusion on our clients day-to-day lives.  We are not scared of early mornings or late nights.  Often clients leave for a long weekend to return to a new, made over, home or remodel.

With some many hi-profile clients we understand your privacy is very important. All DTBD team members sign full disclosures that apply to all clients that work with our agency.  We also adhere to the following safety measures:

1. All documents leaving the house/project are are shredded before being disposed.

2. Any items with a name or address adhered to it is removed and disposed of properly includeing medicine bottles, packing slips etc.

3. We never throw any items out without approval.

Now lets get to work...
