We would like to know your opinion about Purinton Designs
Chris and Meg Kwoka
We met Daniel Purinton at the San Mateo Home Show in January. We were planning on remodeling our kitchen (a complete tear-out) and we were looking for a contractor with ideas.
We talked with Daniel, explained that we were just starting the process and would consider having hime come out and work with us. We met several times over the next two weeks and Daniel gave us several good ideas and designs.
However, we wanted to identify our appliances, look at different cabinet companies, and generally do additional homework. We spent the next nine weekends looking at and selecting our appliances, talking with five different kitchen designers and cabinet suppliers, selecting our granite and quartz countertop materials, etc.
We even hired a Design Consultant to help us with the layout. Finally, after two and a half months of constant weekend homework, we were ready to select a contractor.
Being a General Engineering Contractor myself, I created Specifications and solicited four bids, three from contractors where we would act as the General and supply cabinets, countertops, etc and a bid from Daniel where he would supply the cabinets, countertops, plumbing, electrical, painting, and any other subcontractor and work with us on items that we wanted to supply (granite, light fixtures, appliances, etc.).
Daniel’s price was second from the lowest and less than half the highest bid we received; and his bid was the first one we received.
We had to wait three weeks for two other bids and four weeks for the last bid. we elected to work with Daniel and it was the best decision that we could have made. The construction was completed in two weeks and the entire project was completed within 6 weeks. Work was completed in a timely fashion, inspections from the Building Department were coordinated without delay, and corrections were implemented in a timely fashion. We even had molding custom manufactured to match existing molding and this was accomplished without impacting the schedule. Changes were accommodated and additions and subtractions to the contract pricd were negotiated fairly.

I want to say that all of the workers including your subcontractors have all been very professional and courteous in both their work and in their conversations with Gwyn.

My mother needed her master bath and bedroom upgraded with handicap compliance. Not only did the upgrade fit her needs, the bath was beautiful and stylish. Dan and Lou are professional yet personable, stay within budget and are all about the customer. We also had them upgrade the electrical for safety and future improvements. It was another impeccable job.
Hope you’re well, and that your website is generating lots of business for you. My daughter’s wedding was wonderful, and now I have time to actually catch up on everything else, including your letter of recommendation. Here it is, finally:
Around my house, we call Dan Purinton “Dan the Man” because he’s directly responsible for the fact that I now have the kitchen of my dreams. Last November, I signed a contract to have my kitchen extended and renovated because Dan, the sales and design partner, seemed knowledgeable, trustworthy, and was very responsive to my ideas. I really enjoyed working with him to design my space and selecting the materials.
Good luck Dan, and I’ll definitely call you when we start thinking about the bathroom renovation.
Dear Dan: I so appreciate your professional help today, and your follow through afterward, to finish my bathroom upstairs and the doors in my house. The cat seems better today (she always is when Jaime and his crew are here, instead of the demolishers). However, the floor people should come in next, so I am taking her to boarding tomorrow AM,If she can be found. I think your suppliers and their fine goods, and your wonderful iconoclastic design in the first place, have set up a really fine and radically new design of my home. Again, thank you, and I am looking forward to next steps.
Dan, the owner, helped us to design our 1949 wood kitchen. He was able to add modern touches and keep the charm of the wood. Dan and his team were fantastic. They became part of our family. They cleaned up every night and made the reconstruction process easy. We are thrilled with the new kitchen and smile every morning when we walk in.
I would highly recommend Purinton Design!
