“They were not only responsive to our needs, but in many instances made suggestions that saved us thousands of dollars as well as hundreds of saved labor hours for future projects. This type of customer service is hard to find today. It was so refreshing to see how much they cared about the final outcome of the project.”

“This is one of many construction/renovation projects that we have been involved with. This was, by far, the best experience ever. Our change orders were minimal, to almost non-existent, and all expectations were met and communicated effectively.”

“Delmarva Veteran Builders, LLC recently completed a tedious and challenging project replacing thru wall flashing on two brick chimneys at the Salisbury University Guerrieri Center while fully occupied. They did an excellent job coordinating their team of tradesmen to complete on time despite winter weather delays and “no work” or “quiet work only” times to accommodate University functions. From start to finish they were responsive, excellent communicators, performed clean work, and maintained an organized jobsite. They were a joy to work with.”

Max Verbits, Architect
Salisbury University - January 2016

"The amphitheater project turned out exactly as we had envisioned, beautiful and impressive in scale. The DVB team worked through every kind of weather imaginable to ensure that the project was completed in time for our dedication event and delivered it on budget. The amphitheater project was constructed with such caring for the end product, you might have thought that DVB was going to own the building."

Ray Teat

"Delmarva Veteran Builders has a team of dedicated individuals that completed the project weeks ahead of schedule. The quality of their work and their professionalism exceeded my expectations.
