Below please find a list of all of Daunno Development’s standard construction materials and vendors. We provide this list to our customers in an effort to better educate them and allow them to see the materials we have quoted in our bids. We hope this allows them to make an “apples to apples” comparison when comparing our price to that of other contractors.

At Daunno, we use the same quality materials and hold the same high standards whether we are acting as a builder, developer, or general contractor. This holds true in new home construction as well as addition or renovation work. While many of our new homes and projects have unique sets of standards, some jobs we bid are very preliminary and not as specific. This list is especially beneficial in those circumstances.

Please also note that while we use these products as our standards, we always allow our customers the option to up or down grade the items depending on their budget. For additional questions or comments, feel free to Contact Us at any time. As always, we encourage any potential clients to set up a follow-up meeting with us after receiving a bid in order to further clarify what we have outlined.
