When Dan Carter told me he could gut my kitchen and have it back together in 5 weeks, I was a bit skeptical.  Not only did he meet that deadline, but with an additional week he put Travertine tile in my entire family room and entryway.  Oh, and I almost forgot… laid a new wood floor in the living room and dining room.  The entire process went very smoothly. We were in the house while all of this was going on, and Dan always made sure before he left in the evening that I could plug in my coffee pot, toaster oven, and microwave. 

 Dan would arrive on Monday morning and tell me what he needed me to make decisions on for the week.  It couldn’t have been easier.  Dan and his team were on time, and all of his subs arrived when they said they would arrive.  Dan truly loves what he does.  He assisted me in picking tiles and backsplashes, powder room cabinets, and when I couldn’t find a toilet paper holder to match the new powder room he painted it for me!

For years we have wanted to remodel our home but we were never able to find a contractor who could see our vision until we met Dan Carter.  Not only did he see our vision but he had wonderful suggestions to enhance those ideas.  He gave us great leads on manufacturers which made our selection process very easy.  All of Dan's subcontractors were fabulous and everything during the development stages went very smoothly.   Dan always made us feel important and if we wanted to make changes he was always happy to comply as well as to make them even better.  In the end, we were overwhelmed with the completion of our project. We can never thank Dan enough for his commitment to making our home so beautiful.

It all began with our master bathroom! Dan and his crew did such a fabulous job, that we had them do our second bathroom, immediately. We were so happy with them both, and decided when the time was right the rest of the house would be done by Dan and his crew. 

Fast forward a few years (not soon enough for me!) and our dream (mine especially!) has come true!!!  We cannot thank Dan, Pako, Ramon, Guillermo, Dave, Danny and Chris for all their hard work, expertise, vision, and beauty they put into our home to make it everything that we ever hoped for!! They all are such a pleasure to work with... calming!!, fun, professional, and respectful. The house was always left clean and picked up from each days work, and protected other areas that were not being worked on at the time. We cannot say enough about them!! We thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts!

My project was a bathroom, which was in its original 1959 condition.  Dan’s considerable experience and eye for style turned that room into a real beauty!  His subcontractors, without exception, were highly talented and a pleasure to work with.  Dan communicated very well through the whole project, letting me know any decisions I needed to make, what to expect that day, and what was happening the next day.  His attention to detail was there from beginning to end.  You should see the end result, which you actually can by going to the ‘before and after’ part of Dan’s website.  It was wonderful to work with Dan and his team, who take such pride in their profession!

Ever since we moved into our 35 year old home 3 years ago we've desperately wanted to have our outdated master bath remodeled.  After seeing the beautiful job Dan did on our friend's Master Bath we hired him to do ours as well.  

Dan, his two sons, and his crew were great. They all had winning personalities, were on time each day and finished our job within the time frame expected.  Once we signed the contract, Dan took us shopping and we came away with items we loved; those that have made our remodel special and unique. 

We are so happy with the results.  Our bathroom looks amazing!

We want to thank them all, and will definitely have them back for future projects.

Our kitchen was 20 years old and had poorly designed storage space. We contacted a local remodeling contractor but found they could not solve the problems caused by the number of angled wall surfaces in our kitchen.  A neighbor recommended Dan Carter of Artisan Custom Remodeling, Inc. and he developed a design that looked great and was in our price range.  The result was beautiful new cabinets, granite surfaces, tile flooring and lighting, all completed in one month.  Dan has great design ideas, employs very competent workers, and keeps a friendly and efficient workplace atmosphere.  We had dreaded the thought of remodeling, but it turned out to be much easier for us than we had imagined.  I would happily recommend Dan Carter to anyone wanting good design and quality workmanship.
