"Durango Developments did an outstanding job in our kitchen renovations. Before we began the project, we heard horror stories of renovations run amok but our experience was exactly the opposite. The whole process was well-managed, with a minimum of inconvenience to us, and the final result was beautiful.
We also contracted Durango to rebuild our peninsula fireplace. They did such a great job that our designer took pictures to show other contractors how the tile mitering should be done."
