DC Construction Testimonials
I purchased a condo on short sale in Whittier so naturally it was as-is. The bathrooms needed refurbishing, the concrete aggregate decks were a mess, the kitchen and fireplace tile were chipped. Ann Taylor from Decorative Concrete to the rescue. I liked that Ann recommended just cleaning up the bathrooms rather than replacing the tile and vanity sink (which would've been more expensive). Her crew replaced the 80's style tile in the kitchen and fireplace with slate mosaic and a granite countertop. The decks were powerwashed and sealed (what a difference!). Ann was very responsive and good with follow up. There were snags in the escrow so I had to keep rescheduling. Despite this, Ann worked with me and scheduled the work so efficiently knowing my timelines for moving. Now my little condo feels like a 5-star resort with all the upgrades. And her price was reasonable - not the cheapest but you get what you pay for. Highly recommend.
