To ensure the highest level of commitment to the customer, DBG founders Matt Trunnell and David Kay work hand-in-hand with each homeowner every step of the way. Through a carefully detailed and customer-oriented design process, DBG brings an added layer of transparency to design and project management much appreciated by their clients.

I had an original (1999) kitchen and master bath in my Northern Virginia townhome. I moved here a year ago and decided in that time that I wanted an update. I had heard of DBG when I first moved here so called them to discuss. From the initial meeting, to the actual design and implementation, DBG could not have been any better. David, the designer, was professional, respectful and appreciated what I was trying to accomplish. He stayed within my budget and completed before it was promised. He guided me as to where it was important to spend a little extra for quality and where it didn’t matter so much. DBG has excellent relationships with suppliers and the turnaround time of choosing to installation is amazing. For example, i choose a stone for my master bath vanity on a Tuesday, it was measured on Wednesday and installed on Thursday. We choose the cabinetry and ordered in time for me to get started at my desired start-date. In fact, the entire installation of both the master bath and the kitchen, from demo to full completion (punch-list and all), was just a few days over 3 weeks, with the bulk of it done in two. I scheduled it for when I was away and I highly recommend. I came home after two weeks, most was done and I was only inconvenienced a week. While I was away, the contractors treated my home with care and respect. Everything was draped and when the cleaners came after it was all complete, there was not much for them to clean! DBG has its own subs so there is never any downtime. The entire process was ‘flawless’-hardly a word associated with remodel! I highly highly recommend!
