About Double D Contractors
As the founder, president, and sales director, I, Douglas Dervin, started the company back in 1983. I was a commercial contractor at the time, yet most of my experience was in home improvements. By 1985, I had begun to turn more and more into a residential remodeler.
Today, we are a licensed, incorporated, and diversified remodeling firm providing residential and commercial remodeling, design, and construction services to clients across Long Island and the surrounding areas.
Most of our work is in Nassau, Suffolk, and Queens counties, but we are licensed in New York City, Long Beach, Floral Park as well as Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
We currently have two full-time carpenters and one full-time apprentice who are among the most trusted and reliable professionals in the area, as they consistently provide clients with excellent service and superior craftsmanship.
While remodeling has both busy and slow days, we work all year round. Most people don't realize how long the planning, design, and building department approval takes, and that makes their timetable different from ours. Ideally, we would rather be remodeling a kitchen, bath, or basement in the winter and building the additions in the spring, summer, and fall, but we do what we have to do!
Over the years, we've gained access to some of the best tradesmen and suppliers in the industry due to our memberships with notable trade associations. We have been members of NARI (The National Association of the Remodeling Industry) for the past thirty years. NARI has helped shape and grow the business through seminars, demonstrations, certifications, and rubbing elbows with some of the best and largest remodelers on Long Island.
As a business, we believe it is important to evolve with the times and keep up with the changes and improvements. That is why we attend local and national trade shows. We get to see new products, tools, and gadgets. We also get to meet with the representatives from the companies introducing the new products. They are the ones that get our employees the training needed to properly install or use innovative materials and tools to give our clients the best remodeling experience we can. One such improvement is the APP we use for communicating with our clients. The APP is opened on your cell phone, and anything and everything to do with your project can be reached from anywhere. It has been a huge game-changer!
The Double D Contractors Difference
As a professional firm, we work closely with clients to ensure that we meet or exceed their expectations. Before we start a project, we ask clients various questions to understand what they want, how they want it, and ultimately, build something that resembles what they've imagined. We also walk clients through every step of the remodeling process to ensure all their needs are addressed.
We strive to work with clients who trust our services - people that we can totally be upfront and transparent with. We want to also end each job friendlier than when we first started.
The fact that we've been in business for thirty-seven years says an awful lot about us. We didn't get here by advertising; we got here by servicing our clients. We believe in taking care of our clients and being fair with our pricing. We may quote the highest or lowest price depending on the requirement, but we always provide clients with the quality they expect. Keep in mind that we always quote the price!
What clients most appreciate about us is that we've been in business for over thirty-seven years. They know we have the experience, knowledge, and skills to turn their dreams into reality. Also, since most of our clients tend to be computer savvy, they like knowing that we are up to speed with new and old products. We depend on referrals and good reports on Google, so we work very hard at pleasing our clients.
We're also Certified Lead Carpenter and Certified Remodeler, Pella Certified Window Installer, Marvin Windows Certified Installer, Certified to install Marvin Lift and Slide Doors, Certified Vinyl Siding Installation, and Royal Select PVC Siding Installers. We have even received certifications for installing Tyvek weather barrier, Azek Trim, and fascia.
As leading general contractors and remodelers, we specialize in building custom additions, but we have won Contractor of The Year awards (Two National Awards) for Kitchens, Exteriors, Historic Restoration, Commercial remodeling, and even an award for a Basement. Our double contractors have won Contractor of the Year from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, 18 NYC/LI Coty Awards, 15 Northeast Region I Coty Awards, 2 National Coty Awards, 9 NY State, and 7 Northeast Regional Chrysalis Awards. We were also selected as one of the top 50 Remodelers in the Country by Remodeling Magazine, and were featured on the cover of Better Homes, and Gardens special issue with a kitchen remodel we completed in Manhasset. We have even received numerous awards and proclamations from Senators, Congressman, and other officials for the support to the NYPD in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.
Winning awards for our remodels are great but helping others is the best. Over the years, we have built handicapped ramps, extensions, remodeled kitchens, baths, basements, and even built brand new homes. Out of all of them, the greatest was the 9/11 Project for the NYPD in the aftermath of the attacks. Coaching Hockey for twenty-two years was great as well!
As the founder, I would like to see the business continue after I retire, that is, if I retire. I still enjoy meeting new clients, forming relationships with new clients, rekindling past relationships with clients and their families. It's still rewarding to see spaces and facades change from drab to wow! I still LOVE it!
