We met Rick Daunno through our architect and immediately knew he would not only be great at his job but suit our Northeastern mentality of being available, quick and attending to each and every detail along the way without any worries. Rick identified potential problems even before they arose. Rick was on the job site almost every day and addressed every question we had about the project and other housing questions while he was there. He worked with us in identifying areas where we could save money and even helped us find sub contractors through his network of other jobs that we wanted to tackle in tandem. I would identify Rick as honest (which can be hard to find) and also a perfectionist (which any homeowner would appreciate). If something was not done right, he would have the issue redone until it made everyone happy. I would definitely use Rick again and recommend him to friends.

Every single element of the planning and building process – from initial design, refinements to the plan, quality of vendors (sub-contractors), and to the attention to detail were fantastic. What we also really appreciated and valued was the fact that Rick was at our home every day, ensuring that all work was performed accurately and to his standards. Rick’s building expertise and project management skills were outstanding – and well beyond anything we could have hoped for in this project. We were and continue to be amazed with how our unfinished basement was completely transformed into a beautiful, family-friendly multi-functional space for our family to enjoy. We had a great experience and absolutely enjoyed working with Rick. We are happy to be referrals and happy to show our home to any potential clients.

fire to our property was daunting, but your attention
to detail and hiring
of high quality sub-contractors resulted in a beautiful
apartment that surpassed our expectations.

though we said it at the end of our basement reconstruction,
we want to say it
again: “Thank you, Daunno Associates Construction!” During
Hurricane Irene our basement took on water when our
sump-pump didn’t work due to an electrical
outage. Unfortunately we were out-of-town and water
sat in the basement for several days—damaging
the carpet and walls. Of the several reconstruction
proposals we received, Rick Daunno of Daunno Associates
Construction presented us with the most complete
proposal describing in detail the scope of work necessary
for a total reconstruction at a competitive cost.
Once the reconstruction began, Rick and his capable
son, Jesse, were present for every step: supervising
and guiding the sub-contractors. On several occasions
Rick found work unacceptable and had the repairs
redone although the deficiency was not apparent to
us. The project was finished on time and under budget—almost
unheard of in the construction business! And as
an extra bonus, the basement was cleaned up at
of every day during the project. Needless to say,
my wife and I were extremely happy with Daunno
Associates Construction; we would highly recommend
any project. Once more, thank you Rick and Jesse!

were aggressive from the get go with your quote.
You had questions and input that were helpful
to the scope of the project. Your quote was
extremely fair and you included a lot of details
to the competition. The sub-contractors you
used were pretty good and you overall did a great
job. Rick was a very hands on personal guy
did all the little things needed to do in any
business to please the customer. I was very
pleased with the entire process and I hope to
you in the future. Rick Knows I’m a big
fan. I’ll be happy to recommend you in
the future and I’ve already done so.

Daunno was on the job site every day; almost always
early to be here before the contractors arrived
and throughout the day as needed. His attention
to detail was remarkable, he thought about the
integration of the various trades and recognized
every spot in advance and worked out a solution
where the design drawings were not clear. I
believe his approach to his work is to build the
job in his head in order to anticipate and overcome
any issues. He conducts himself in a very
professional manner with his clients and contractors.
He has an extensive list of contractors, all of
I found to be of high caliber. Rick's background
as I understand it is that he worked for many years
for a large commercial office business,
doing commercial office construction
for them as the 'owners representative'. I would highly recommend Daunno Associates.
