What Our Clients Say About Danken

“Hi Dan, It’s hard to believe that it’s been 8 years since Danken re-did our kitchen. It still looks as good as the day it was finished and I thoroughly enjoy working in it. Everything is just where it should be. In February, Tom and I were in Florida to see the Phillies and some friends. We drove by a WAWA and Tom said he could live there. One thing led to another and before you know it we were looking at model homes. We decided to sell our house and move and although it is exciting to think about exploring a new area, we are little sad about leaving here. (I wish I could take this kitchen with us.) We wanted to let you know that your kitchen was a big selling point to our house. As a matter of fact, our realtor did a video and highlighted the kitchen in it. (Hope you can see this video.) When our realtor and others came into the house they were in awe when came down the hallway from the front door and saw it. Danken was also mentioned in the listing: We just thought you might like to know. Thank you again for all you did for us.” ~ Peg & Tom B.
“I couldn't be happier with my bathroom remodel! From start to finish, everyone made the process fun and easy. Dan, Ken and the crew couldn't have been nicer. Their attention to detail and professionalism is why I wouldn't consider using any other company. I already am planning my next project with them! Thank you again!” ~ Lynn S.
“Hi Dan, our master bath looks incredible. Thanks so much for your help!! Hi Ken - Thank you for your help as well. Let us know the final payment after any adjustments. By the way, we’re not the only ones who marvel at the quality and exceptional detail work that Danken does. The painters and glass company all said the same thing. Feel free to use us for a reference. It would be 100% positive!” ~ Brian and Marilyn R.
“We want to recognize the fine job your technicians accomplished at our home. They are and were respectful, informative and dedicated to doing the best possible job for us. They were on time every day and worked very hard throughout the day. The crew is a credit to your organization. I also want to thank you for your help in guiding us through this project and we are pleased with it’s outcome. It looks beautiful and we are looking forward to take our first shower in the near future.” ~ Bill & Carol H.
“Just wanted to drop you a note to say or bathroom is gorgeous. We both love it (shocking given our level of compromise). Thanks for your expertise, patience and humor. You made the process easy and fun. Hoping you have a healthy and prosperous 2021.” ~ Frank & Vikki R

“I can hardly begin to tell you how pleased I am with the bathroom remodel! From my first day in the showroom, I knew I had made the right choice in picking Danken for the rehab. Certainly, it’s been an adventure for us all with the shut down and pandemic but I deeply appreciate everyone’s hard work and professionalism. Thanks to you all, my home value has greatly increased and I feel like I’m on vacation every time I walk in my bath! Thank you again,” ~ Peg A.
“Another job well done… and as always, we are very happy customers. From our first meeting with Dan K. to the final visit from Jim to replace the drawer slides, our kitchen re-do was an enjoyable experience. The guys in the crew that worked here were wonderful, pleasant, considerate, and professional. My favorite part of the project is the tile behind the stove. I love it! I’m also glad we decided to get the farm sink because it looks awesome too. Thanks to everyone. Be safe.” ~ Joe & Linda R.
“Jean and I want you to know how very pleased we are with the kitchen and bathroom remodeling. Your workmanship quality is top notch!! Your craftsmen have been very professional, polite, and clean up well. Office staff – Ken, Dan, Dan K. & Meg have been wonderful! You are highly recommended!! Take Care. Special thanks to Jamin & Paul – bathroom – super job, kitchen – fantastic. Lots of laughs with Dan K.!! Great Planning.” ~ Chip & Jean L.
“Thank you all so much for everything. We didn’t expect our remodel to happen during a pandemic, but it turned out perfect. We got to spend lots of time with Jamin & Paul who are both fabulous. They were so friendly and professional at all times. Oh, and so super clean. Mike and I love our new bathrooms. The whole process starting with Dan K. to the end was made simple and seamless with Ken checking in on the other end for completion. We cannot thank you all enough!” ~ Mike O. & Caroline H.
“Thank you so much for creating the kitchen of our dreams! Your meticulous attention to detail, and insistence on perfection every step of the way is rare in this day and age and so much appreciated and admired! We came to trust you and your opinions, which greatly enhanced the overall final look. We definitely will think of you often as we pinch ourselves in awe. Thank you again.” ~ Bill & Laura B
“We are spending more time at home these past months and feel very fortunate to live in a home we love more and more due to recently remodeled rooms by Danken. - A master bathroom that is now elegant, bright, and timeless, with subtle aging-in-place details. - A bright master closet with plenty of hanging and shelf space. - A sad little hall bath is transformed into my dream bathroom. - The kitchen, that I have loved since it was completely remodeled by Danken years ago, is newly updated and beautiful. Dan listened to our needs and wishes and designed the perfect spaces for us. Ken provided me with a precise schedule, and their team of very skilled, and ever so nice, professional craftsmen completed the project exactly as promised. It is perfection. At the end of each work day, they left me with a home that was clean and completely livable. I appreciated that so much. Thank you Dan and Ken, superheroes Chris and Matt, Keith and Ron. You are amazing! I have, and will always recommend Danken. Jane F” ~ Jane F.
“We just can’t thank you all enough for the beautiful kitchen and bath remodels. We are thrilled with it all. Jamin, Paul and Ron your attention to detail is meticulous and professional from start to finish. Thank you Dan K. and Ken for your assist with the design, always being available to answer questions and deal with concerns in a timely manner. We wish you continued success in your business and we will highly recommend your work to family and friends.” ~ Geri & Carol
“Hope all is well. Frank and I are very pleased with our new kitchen, breakfast nook, foyer, powder room, and laundry room. It is extremely satisfying to see the project grow from an idea in our heads, printed on paper, and then into reality. No doubt the process is cumbersome and time consuming but with patience, communication, & the expertise Danken provided through the process, it is ultimately very rewarding. Over the course of the year, we’ve hosted a few large parties and have received so many compliments from the construction, to the interior design, the thought that went into the detail of the kitchen cabinet handles, counter legs, cabinetry, floor tile design, molding on the half wall…I literally can’t name them all. Job well done, Danken !!” ~ Frank & Suzanne C.
“Thanks for my beautiful bathroom! Scott and Ryan were super, courteous, respectful and competent.” ~ Joan H.
“Every contact I had with your company starting with Dan K. and ending with Ken was nothing short of outstanding.” ~ Dennis & Miriam H.
“The job is finished and I can only say great things about the workmanship, flooring, fixtures, and etc. I am so happy the way it turned out. The room is getting painted Wednesday and Thursday. I know when you start putting on the final touches (like the paint), the room will start to “pop”. Window treatments are next…. I went with a Plantation Shutter. Again, I want to say how happy I was with working with “my” team, Chris and Matt. They are the best, so neat and thoughtful and answered all my questions that I had each morning. I really do miss the 8:00 am knock on the door! I will keep giving referrals to friends, neighbors, and family who ask about Danken Corporation. I have nothing bad to say about the contractor I chose! I feel bad when you hear things from people about their major house renovations that have gone wrong/bad! Bruce and I have the downstairs to update, so you might hear form me soon. Thank you again for a job well done. I can’t say enough how happy I am. Please continue to do what you have been doing, you are doing something right!” ~ Bruce & Diane M.
“The installation of our pocket door to our library is wonderful. The workmanship by Scott and Ryan is very much appreciated. Also, a thank you to Ron for the great job on the door staining. We thank your organization for providing excellent service and attention to detail. We will always be confident in recommending your firm to friends and family.” ~ Linda H.
“Thank you for an excellent job. We are so happy with our kitchen. We’ll definitely be making referrals and we have a few more projects in the wings. Thanks again.” ~ Gary & Elaine F.
“Jayne and I wanted to take the opportunity to thank both of you and your team for a job well done. We are very pleased with the quality of the products you have supplied. Furthmore, we can’t say enough about the quality of your team. Chris, Matt and Ryan lived at our house for 6+ weeks. Their level of professionalism and attention to detail was second to none. In addition, both of you treated us with care and professionalism even when small deviations popped up (structural beam, lighting and tile window surround). We are already enjoying our new living space very much. We look forward to many more years of enjoyment. We would not hesitate to use Danken again on future projects or to recommend your services to others. Jayne is already talking about the bathroom. Maybe we will speak again soon! Thank you again.” ~ Brian & Jayne W.
“Our bathroom remodeling was 22 years past due. So try to imagine what that looked like before Danken stepped in and transformed it to a beautiful, sparkling spa! Dan K. helped me pick out the perfect materials, then the skilled artisans performed and VOILA!! I’m a happy woman.” ~ Robin & Barb M.
“It was a pleasure working with you. You were honest, neat, timely and the work you did was beautiful. I’d like to especially mention Jeff, who must be one of the nicest people I’ve worked with, and highly competent.” ~ Mary T.
“Thank you so much for such an outstanding remodel! You all made it so easy from start to finish and were so pleasant to work with. Even our “little fixes” have been nightmares in previous experiences with other companies, so working with your crew was an amazing change. We are looking forward to planning our next project with you. Thanks again.” ~ Michael & Ashley F.
