The Dostie Family

If you live in Florida, you know the risk of Hurricane season. Whether it is a direct hit or a sneaky skirt, the damage can be overwhelming. 


One of our favorite clients, Mr. Dostie, was facing the reality of multiple storms that took a toll on his dock and deck. ADB was there, from start to finish and was able to restore his dock and boathouse in no time. 
 

From Mr. Dostie:
Billy, I want to tell you, I just did something that I haven't been able to do in 18 months. I walked to the end of "my dock" to view the most amazing sunset. 
I can not say enough good things about the job you and your crew did. 

 

This is as nice of a job as I could ask for. You left the place spotless. I have nothing but kudos for you and your crew.  Your men were always a pleasure to speak to and very respectful when I or my wife spoke to them. I will recommend you as often as I can and I already have given your name and number to a neighbor down the street. I hope she calls you as I know she will not be disappointed with your work.
This job is perfect. You can put me on your website and I will be your #1 reference.  

 

I can't say enough good things about it.

More Testimonials

You guys, I’m so happy I could cry! 11 months after the hurricane. We have had I can’t even tell you how many people and companies come look at this for repairs. They either quoted double or quadruple the other going rates or flat out didn’t show or call when they said they would. Until….a completely random conversation with a friend at work on Sunday. Lou called me Monday morning. Monday afternoon they showed to assess and give a quote. They said they would show up at 8 am Tuesday. GUESS WHO SHOWED UP AT 8AM TUESDAY FOR LESS THAN HALF THE LOWEST QUOTE WE RECEIVED. They showed when they said they would-à miracle. And seriously, the best price around to do the work we needed done without all the unnecessary add-ons everyone else wants to include. All that to say, if you need work done, you better call these people or you are making a mistake. Good, honest, reliable, and trustworthy. Also, if you need me this weekend, you’ll know where to find me! Sunsets, manatees, fishing, and morning coffee walks are finally back on the agenda for this weekend!!!

Billy, We want to thank you for a job well done! We were very pleased with your conscientious professionalism from the earliest planning stages of our dock repairs and the revisions as the job progressed. Your men worked in some adverse weather and water conditions. We were impressed with your hands-on approach and the personal attention to detail and we really appreciate your patience when addressing our questions and concerns. We are looking forward to many happy times with family and friends on our new terrific dock! Thanks again, Larry
