Joel DeTar and his crew at DeTar Construction built our dream home.
We learned early-on that quality building is one of Joel DeTar's passions and his motivation to help us create our Sedona dream home created an enthusiasm that was contagious throughout the construction process.
Joel and his right-hand man, Bryan Drye, along with his team of handpicked, top-notch, professional, courteaous sub-contractors works with us in the latter phases of planning and design of our dream home in the Fall of 2008, through construction and punch list.
With this team, we knew from the very beginning that the project was going to be a huge success. Each successive planning meeting found us outlining every detail we wanted both inside and outside the house. DeTar worked seamlessly with us and the other professionals to ensure that our home was completed to our satisfaction.
The quality fo the work shows as we live in the house on a day-to-day basis. Any time we have had a question or potential issue, whether it was about construction or costs or modifying previous decisions, our concerns were responded to immediatly and our questions were patiently answered.
The finished product exceeded all our expectations. The quality is extraordinary and clearly evident to anyone who visits our home. The phrase "underpromise and overdeliver" would certainly apply here.
As an example of attention to detail, Joel and Bryan had the stone masons rotate the area of installation on various walls so that all of the stone work would reflect the entire masonry team, as opposed to individual patches of work. When a portion of concrete did not meet Bryan's standards, he had it repoured. As the kitchen was being installed, there was a part of the center island that was too large. Joel had it cut out and replaced creating a more spacious appearance as well as more efficient work space.
We moved into our new home in February 2011, and to this day, any questions or concerns we may have as we acquaint ourselves with our new surroundings, such as learning to use the complex technology installed, small maintenance concerns, or general upkeep issues due to daily usage, Joel and Bryan responded immediately. We can rely on DeTar Construction for help and advice even though the project is completed. Our home is beautiful, sound and well-built, and we highly recommend Joel and his DeTar Construction team to you as your home builders.
