We recently purchased our first home in a newly developed project by Providence One Builders. As first time homebuyers, we were terribly unfamiliar with the process and, suffice to say, a bit overwhelmed by all of the decisions we would need to make during the construction period. After meeting with Dave Hopkins, we felt incredibly comfortable and we immediately knew that we wanted to work with him on the construction of our new townhouse. Throughout the entire design and construction process, Dave and his construction manager, Dan Giandonato, were exceptionally professional, easily accessible, very accommodating, and tremendously comforting at all times. Their attention to detail and their willingness to work with us through various changes we wanted to incorporate along the way, along with guidance on our finish selections, made for a phenomenally wonderful and successful finished product. We are thrilled with our new home and have already asked Dave and Dan if they would be willing to help us with our next house, whenever that time may come. We highly recommend Providence One Development to anyone looking to build a new home or remodel an existing one– you will not be disappointed with the quality of the construction and the warmth and friendliness of Dave and Dan.

Honestly, we couldn’t be more pleased with Dave’s (and team) professionalism, responsiveness, cleanliness and timeliness. It went according to plan - but probably better. His main on site man, Dan is absolutely wonderful. The type of person that I missed having around when the project was complete. Both Dave and Dan aren’t the typical construction/builders. When I called or texted either of them, I always received a timely response. Nothing I asked for was ever a problem for them, even when I knew it was being nitpicky. They kept us on budget and provided necessary opinions when needed. I trusted them completely every day when I walked out of my house, often with a house full of strangers. And the best part of all, the project went faster than the initial timeline and it looks pretty nice, if I do say so myself. Dave Hopkins’ integrity and professional is top notch. I would be an advocate for him and his work any day.

We contacted Dave Hopkins at Providence One about building a custom home for our special needs family at a location on Swedesford Road in Malvern…

Dave was patient with us and took the time to investigate and explain alternatives to the many design points in terms of time and cost and practicality….

Once the building began, Dan Giandonato became our main contact. He met with us about once a week and as often as needed show us the progress, explain the building process, and resolve any issues (there were very few). Once he understood some of our needs, he made some helpful proposals that increased the effectiveness of our new home.

Once ground was broken, he established a 5 month schedule and adhered to it, so we knew exactly what to expect and when to plan to move in…

The build was awesome!

It really only did take 5 months, and you could see progress from week to week. Dan was enthusiastic about showing us and explaining some of the subtleties every step of the way. Because we were so familiar with the house from the design phase, we could see it coming to life before our eyes. Our five year old loved to visit the site, and this unintentionally removed any anxiety about moving she may otherwise have had.

We are pleased that we had such a good experience working with Dave and Dan of Providence One. It was chance that we approached them. But as we worked with them, we came to understand their sincerity and enthusiasm about building a quality house for a commensurate price, and we became confident about the decision. We consider them friends, now, and would not hesitate to work with them again. And we love our home!

Our experience using Dave Hopkins & Providence One Development as our general contractor for the construction of our barn was exceptional. His expertise, patience, diligence and respectful rapport with his subcontractors not only resulted in an outcome we are truly happy with, but also made the process from start to finish very pleasant.

Providence One Builders was able to successfully fulfill our dream of renovating our home built in the early 1900’s. We were able to add square footage and modern comforts without sacrificing the character and charm of an old home. Throughout the construction, we appreciated their ability to quickly communicate solutions to issues that are inherent with an older home and maintain the project schedule and budget.

“Providence One Builders completed a major renovation for us on our home that included significant interior work (new kitchen, new master bathroom, new hardwood flooring, shiplap finishes, electrical etc) and a brand new exterior with stucco removal, new hardie plank siding, new windows on the entire house, and a new outdoor living area in the backyard. It was a big project that was handled professionally, on time, and on budget - from beginning to end with no real issues. Selecting a contractor can be difficult and stressful- but we felt 100% comfortable with Dave from the first day we met him at our kitchen table. He and his team are trustworthy, honest, detail oriented and deliver high quality work at a fair price. Throughout the process we felt in good hands with Providence One Builders and they are very responsive and communicate well which is important- we made the right decision for sure! Their team treats your home like it is their own - and we found their work to be very high quality. “
