    DMM Construction & Electric
    We bought a small but rundown house in South San Francisco in a nice neighborhood. We knew it needed a lot of work so we had several contractors bid on the work. Most other bids came back higher than we thought, and that was with 'builder's grade' materials etc. Darwin's was already lower, but then he suggested that we could perform certain tasks to keep the costs down. So I hired him for the electrical and framing work first. I had him first make the electrical safe so we could demo. After I did all the demo work (cleared all the drywall and old knob and tube wiring out) Darwin then started in with some dryrot repairs and framing for removing the wall between the kitchen and living room. He also removed and reframed the openings for 5 windows, 2 of wich were going to be smaller than the old ones. He also started the full house rewire, with new subpanel/ breaker box, and doing it all up to modern code. Passed all the inspections. Then while I was insulating, Darwin was installing the new windows and prepping the electrical for the drywall.(drywall by another company). After drywall and windows were finished, Darwin then finished off the electrical outlets and installed switches and light fixtures. Including 16 recessed lights in kitchen(LED) and living room. (boxes installed pre-drywall). He had also run some speaker wire for me pre-drywall. I did most of the finish work myself, tile, toilets, vanity, sinks, floors, base boards, doors etc.. Then Darwin returned to help me install the new kitchen cabinets. He was very precise making sure everything was level and square. He even left me his old air compressor and nail gun so I could finish off the trim work with it and returned them to him when I was done. He was great at being up front when things were difficult or had better ideas than what we thought was ok. Everything was done with permits and up to and exceeded code standards. He even came back and fixed a wire I had punctured when I put in a bracket for the countertop. I feel safe in our new home thanks to Darwin and all his attention to detail. I would recommend him for sure!

    My experience with DMM Company has been great so far. Darwin, the owner is very upfront and honest with the difficulty and cost of the work. He is very accommodating. I would use them in the future if needed.

    Very well. Recommended to me by friends who had had him do seismic bracing. I had him do the seismic retrofit of this house in 2005. He did a really good job, as evidenced by multiple contractors who saw the work and commented on how well it was done. My neighbors had also had him do seismic bracing on two houses, as well as other miscellaneous work on their house. His price was right in line with the one other contractor who would agree to do this door (and this one was all-inclusive of materials). The other contracts estimate was somewhat open-ended, depending on what he found in the tear-out. Mr. Johnson is incredibly meticulous in his attention to details, particularly around structural integrity and prevention of future leaks. I think that if there is a leak in that door again it cannot be prevented. He is also unusually easy to work with. This job went so well we had him do another job and are planning on a third. I will file separate reports for them.

    I had had Mr. Johnson install a new rear door in an area that had significant rot and he did a wonderful job. He has also done a seismic retrofit for me in 2005, with excellent results. After having several fence companies look at building a fence and several gates for me (and finding that I could not afford their services) I asked this contractor for his suggestions. He was creative in finding solutions to separating my dogs from my garden when my baby is playing out there and keeping my baby from falling down the steps to my 3 decks. Rather than swinging gates, he built panels that could slide into rails installed at the bottom and top of each set of stairs, so that I could use one panel for either the top or the bottom and move them as needed. This has made my life so much easier. I have the additional living space of the decks without worrying about the baby falling down the stairs and in the garden he can run around without being knocked down by dogs.
