Recommendation letter for DFW Build and Remodel

I recently opened up a brand new Indian restaurant in Frisco Texas. It was in a new strip mall with just a shell and I was totally unaware about how to proceed with construction.                     

I reached out to so many General contractors but their quotes were too high and out of my budget range. I found Michael Online and he offered me Plan B option where he will overlook and manage all the construction activities with reasonable charges. He helped me in hiring all the Subcontractors and got the work done in reasonable time frame and in a controlled budget.

I can strongly recommend Michael and DFW Build & Remodel if you are looking for any new construction or remodeling of your home or business.

To Whom It May Concern:

We noticed several problems with our house which needed immediate attention. We also wanted to do several upgrades to our home.  We selected Michael Paulson, owner of DFW Build & Remodel as our contractor.  This selection was based on the detail of his scope of work, his demeanor, references, and what we felt was a fair price,

Once they began the work, Michael's Paulson crew discovered several major problems which we did not anticipate.  These included a ruptured sewer line and water leaks in three areas of the house.  This greatly increased the scope of work for the project. 

Throughout this process, Michael and his crew demonstrated professionalism, fairness, honesty and integrity in their pricing and in their workmanship. We were very fortunate to have Michael as our contractor. The work was done to our satisfaction.  The end product has turned into a very nice upgrade to our home. 

When urgent issues arose, Michael addressed them calmly, professionally, and efficiently.  Michael was also very pleasant to work with and kept us informed about the status of the work and schedules. We were very impressed with his attention to detail and his standards.

I would highly recommend DFW Build & Remodel for any remodeling or restoration project.

Project: New 2400 SF Highland Village, TX New Home Construction.

Building a house from scratch is a daunting task; we hired Michael as our Project Manager, seeing the project from start to finish.

With a project of this magnitude, we did have a few hick ups and design changes throughout the build; however Michael came up with creative ideas and solutions to the task at hand. He has a great ability to take control of any situation dealing with planning budgeting, contracts, lien releases, sub-contractors, city planning, and all the construction headaches you could imagine. His attention to detail and smart ideas saved us a lot of money and time.

We are very happy with Michael’s work, professionalism, and dedication to our new home. The house turned out better than expected!

Greg Finney


I have hired Mike on several occasions’ for all of my construction, remodeling, projects over the years including most recently building my new home in Lake Dallas on my lot. We have Michael currently building our 4-5 homes on our lots due to his expertise, dependably and great job planning, management skills.                                              
I would definitely recommend Mike, as I already have, to anyone looking for an honest, dependable and quality contractor.

Dear Michael with DFW: 

Michael with DFW, I wanted to take a moment to write you a letter of appreciation as it relates to the room addition that was supervised by Dan Fetter with / DFW Builders I hope you will share this letter with potential customers that may be considering Michael with DFW for their construction project in the future. 

Our Project: 
* Remove the roof over the garage & existing house 
* Install a 'pony wall' 
* Add nearly 1,000 square feet inclusive of: Bedroom w/ closet (project room), Office w/ fireplace & balcony, Bathroom w/ enclosed steam shower, Game closet & homework Room w/ built-in desks. As wall as hallway cabinetry. 

Sylvia and I considered moving to a little larger home or expanding our current home. After reviewing the marketplace we determined that an addition would better fit our needs. We hired an Architect to draw up the plans then interviewed six different Contractors' for our project. After meeting with six different contractors, we provided plans to four Contractors' to provide proposals. The proposal responses were all over the board with a swing in pricing of nearly 20%. Although of the other Contractors' provided a bid on the project only one provided a bid as we outlined with simple instructions in our 'scope of work.' We did not choose the 'lowest' bid or the 'highest' bid, but chose DFW Build Remodel because DFW provided a competitive response exactly as we had requested. DFW proposal demonstrated that they were listening to the needs of his client, so we felt much more comfortable that our needs would be listened to during the project. 

We were right; DFW Build Remodel did an absolutely outstanding job at running our project. We received numerous time frames from 60 days to 8 months from the various contractors, DFW quoted about 10 weeks (but we had Thanksgiving and Christmas week to contend with), and DFW Build - Remodel completed the job in 10 weeks! The job was completed on budget, managed the crews to have at least one Sub; many times several sub's on site every day. This was not a small project to complete and DFW Build Remodel 's dedication to getting the job done was outstanding. 

Michael, I wish you continued success and I know that other families will enjoy working with DFW Build Remodel Construction as much as we did.
