"We have had the opportunity to work with Dana Stenquist for at least half a dozen home renovation projects over the last 15 years and each one of them has exceeded our expectations.
From an addition of more than 1000 sq. ft. to the remodeling of several bathrooms, inclusion of a mudroom and siding work, there is almost no aspect of our home that has not been touched by him and his team of professionals. His attention to detail, timeliness, and concern for the satisfaction of his customers sets him apart. He and his team are thorough, responsible and professional at all times. More than anything else, and the reason we will choose him for the next project we have is the integrity he brings to his business. His words are good.
His work has made our home more valuable, more enjoyable and a pleasure to invite family and friends to visit. We highly recommend Dana."

"We highly recommend Dana Stenquist. He was our first and only choice when we decided to put an addition and renovate our Newton home. We looked forward to our meetings with Dana which was always pleasant and stress free. Very prompt and responsive, he met with us on a weekly basis to provide updates. He was transparent about project overages and you can trust that he will not compromise cost for quality. Dana is very attentive and when we would become overwhelmed choosing from many options, he worked diligently with us.
“Your wish is my command” is how my wife describes Dana’s carpentry work.
If you are looking for a builder/contractor and want distinctive craftsmanship, look no further. If we were to build/renovate in the future, we will definitely get Dana again!"

We have worked with Dana Stenquist for renovations multiple times, at several locations over many years.It is a pleasure to know Dana and to work with him. He is extremely knowledgeable about all facets of home building, and is able to solve any challenge that arises (as there are always many challenges during building and renovations, often needing creative and innovative solutions to solve within cost and budget). He has an excellent team of craftsmen including carpenters, painters, electricians and others, and he is a superb manager of these resources, matching the right person to each task. Dana himself is a very skilled craftsperson, and he gets into the mix hands on, any time it is needed. His awareness of the schedule and managing multiple jobs he may have in different locations is extremely effective, ensuring his resources are used efficiently and effectively to keep each job moving toward successful completion. Dana is also highly experienced in working with the town entities to ensure building permits are in good order. Dana’s communication with the customer is second to none – text messages, email and phone calls – Dana is responsive to all and always keeps the customer informed regarding options and changes, any situation which arises needing a choice or approval – always keeping the home owner at ease with the construction and contracting process.
We have worked with Dana for over 10 years, since moving into our home in Sherborn. During that time, Stenquist Custom Builders have been our go-to for a series of interior and exterior projects large and small including expanding our home, renovating our kitchen, upgrading decks, modifying a carriage house and gutting and upgrading our master bedroom and bath. In each case the work has been priced fairly and executed with great attention to detail and quality. The Stenquist team is a pleasure to work with, maintains a safe worksite, and is very courteous. When things went wrong, or the unexpected arose – as sometimes does in such projects – Dana was thoughtful and fair, taking responsibility when appropriate and being open and honest about changes in scope that we requested. In the future we will continue to work with Stenquist Custom Builders to upgrade and improve our home. They are by no means the cheapest option around, but they do provide the best value – exceptionally high-quality work at a fair price. We recommend Dana and his team without reservation.
We had the pleasure of working with Dana and his network of highly-rated sub contractors on a recent bathroom remodel. We were impressed with his ability to plan and execute the project seamlessly. Everyone showed up on time and any change in schedule was communicated in advanced. Our project came in within budget during this challenging supply-chain time. We highly recommend Dana for any project.

"Once again, it was such a pleasure to work with you! Your smart, calm approach helped to resolve the many obstacles which arose with the various subcontractors on the project. We so enjoy all the work you have done over the years and rest comfortably knowing it was built to perfection."
"Many thanks for the great job you did on our insulation project. We have already noticed the difference and our electric and gas bills are both down from a year ago. More importantly, you helped us a lot in seeing that the whole job was well thought out and executed."
"We’ve used Stenquist Construction for several projects in our house, large and small. From replacing windows or repairing storm damage, to bath and kitchen remodels, and lastly an addition of a screened-in porch, we’ve been grateful for Dana’s years of experience in the field. The results are beautiful. He has great advice on design and materials, communicates throughout the process and always delivers ahead of schedule. He also has a talented group of subcontractors and the absolute nicest crew around."

Dana Stenquist embodies integrity, intelligence, and experience. He and his talented crew worked diligently renovating the heart of our home - in the middle of winter, no less - with the precision and minimal disruption that only a seasoned pro could pull off! It was a seamless endeavor, and Dana consistently exemplified confidence, kindness, and mastery of his craft from start to finish.
- Joan Krongard
"Dana and his team came highly recommended from a coworker and after completing our first project with him we understand why. They followed our vision and direction, completed work as agreed, made suggestions to improve areas when appropriate, and recognize synergies to ensure a positive experience and outcome. They were always on time and met established deadlines. We had modifcations made to the original 1950s electrical and plumbing systems of the house, as well as renovating our childrens bedrooms to allow for closet space. We look forward to our next project with Stenquist this spring!"
