“My uncle was a contractor and as a child, I would follow him around and hold a board or two as he worked on a project. That’s what made me interested in construction and one thing led to another. Years later, I started my own business and have been serving my clients for more than 30 years.”

Michael installed my kitchen cabinets and coordinated all subcontractors to finish my kitchen, powder room, and living room remodel which includes beautiful finish work, two beautiful new fireplaces and built-ins. Prior to Michael working on my home, the spaces were outdated and haven’t been renovated since the 1970s. Michael’s work is flawless and his team completes beautiful master carpentry work. They keep a clean work site every day and are a pleasure to talk to. Michael by far exceeded my expectations and went the extra mile to bring doughnuts for my son on several occasions. I’m 100% confident in his ability to finish on schedule and stay within the budget. He is an excellent communicator with a winning personality!

Michael finished out my bonus room and tore down an existing patio which was replaced with a new one he built. Two tasks that have been on my to-do list ever since I moved into my home! I was very pleased with Michael’s work. He showed up when he said he was coming and called if he needed to go to another site for the day. He even fixed a few “honey-do’s” while he was at my home. Michael is honest, dependable and does quality work. I have been very pleased!  

Angie Jackson 

Michael’s construction company has done a number of projects for us, including a major kitchen remodel. The work of Michael Darnell Construction employees was exemplary. One of the most impressive qualities of Michael is that he will perform just as he promises. If he says he will be there at a certain time and a certain date, you can count on it! If for some reason he cannot meet his deadline, he will let you know in advance so that you will not be inconvenienced, a rarity in the construction industry. Michael Darnell Construction certainly met our expectations and we continue to hire him for projects.

Michael renovated a master bathroom in my home. I had a small, cramped and outdated bathroom which he completely remodeled into what I was looking for. Michael made sure all of the skills were there when needed including the demolition, plumbing, electrical, sheetrock, fixtures and more. Throughout the process, Michael made sure the workmanship was quality. He is also known for keeping a very tidy work site which is critical when you are living in the space being remodeled! If you want your construction project done right and in a timely manner, hire Michael Darnell!

Mary Boaz

Darnell Construction repaired and replaced old siding, soffits and facia on the exterior of my house. Michael and his team also helped repaint the new surfaces. Before Michael repaired the exterior of my home, I was worried that I had let things go too far and the repair would be difficult. During the project, Michael worked on time and when he said he would, keeping things on schedule. Now the house looks great! Better than I thought it would look. I trusted Michael with my project and I was not disappointed.

Chip Bohle

Michael and his team replaced our wood, added new exterior molding, new shutters, a new front door and all new exterior doors. Before Michael worked on our home, it needed a lot of maintenance due to rotted wood and the aesthetics needing a major overhaul. Michael is very proficient at his work and met our expectations. If someone asked me if they should hire Michael, I would say “Go for it!” 

Lindsey Mangino

“Michael’s team replaced two staircases in my home. When we hired Michael and his team, we were in the middle of a whole home renovation and were really struggling to find someone we trusted to perform the work. I always say you get what you pay for and Michael and his team achieved that. Michael’s team was awesome to work with and a pleasure to have in our home. They went above the norm to make sure to meet all our expectations.”
