The Dernehl Company has the skills to provide high end clients with an enjoyable experience and a home that will last for generations.

Is there really a difference?

Managing a large scale construction project is about more than just a hammer and nails. Construction has become more about team work, fiscal management, and time management than ever before.

When the project starts does your contractor understand that time is money? Not his money but YOUR money. Oversight by any member of the team can prolong a project and cost the client significant funds.

Consider the points on the right before making a decision on your contractor.

Questions about hiring the best contractor in Atlanta

Those may seem like unlikely questions but without those qualities it's doubtful that you will have a successful experience building your new home. Experience, organization, trust, these are all very important qualities to look for in a contractor.

How about is your Contractor charging responsibly? What some people may not realize is the worst situations usually arise from a contractor working too cheaply. Unfortunately this most often leads to cutting corners to save money, lack of supervision on the project which leads to major problems down the road, and financial irregularities that lead to tragic situations.

Does The Dernehl Company use a Schedule?

Does The Dernehl Company Use a Comprehensive Budget?

Yes. Our standard budget has several hundred different line items to help the client understand where their money is going. This budget is updated throughout the project with actual cost vs. estimated cost. It also includes any changes made by the Owner or Architect and tracks any variance in the market prices for items.
We have found this to be an invaluable tool for all parties involved. By tracking your costs in real time we can help you to arrive at your desired level of spending for the project.

Does The Dernehl Company Charge Responsibly?

Yes. After 40 years we have come to understand the level of effort required to successfully complete the highest quality of construction.
Can you find someone cheaper? Yes.
However we don't believe you will find someone who will give you a better experience or build the same quality of home for our price.
