What Our Homeowners Say

A Wonderful Experience

“We repeatedly say that the project turned out much better than we had originally expected, and feel the primary ingredient was the team’s ability to work so well together. It was a wonderful experience and we can’t wait to start another project!”

Keith & Vicki Ovitt

Exactly What I Was Looking For

“Let’s face it: living through a renovation has the potential to be very stressful, but with Donatelli Builders it wasn’t. Chris is conscientious about everything he does, even the ‘small stuff.’ He took the time to talk with me, listen and understand my needs, and then explore different options to make sure my project fit my lifestyle and budget. I always felt like Chris & his team were looking out for me – and they truly delivered exactly what I was looking for … on time and within budget!

It has been a pleasure to work with Donatelli Builders and I highly recommend Chris for any home remodeling or new construction project!”
