The architect that we used to design our addition recommended several builders; Dan Apgar was one of them. After my wife and I interviewed all three, we unanimously choose Dan. All the builders were approximately the same price and all good people but Dan listened well, had interesting ideas and was easy to communicate with. The best way to describe Dan is, “steady.” He came to work early every morning, was well planned, showed creativity in problem solving; always answered questions thoroughly during the building process (which was quite important) and actually finished the job on time and within budget. We spend many hours in our addition and are one hundred percent pleased. We strongly recommend Dan Apgar. If we were to do any additional building, without a doubt, he’d be our guy!

"We worked with Dan on a living room addition to our existing house. From
the very start Dan was professional and courteous to work with and we
immediately got a sense that he really knows his business. But it wasn't
until construction actually started that we really got to appreciate Dan's
work. After beginning the project he found mistakes on the architect's
prints and quickly came up with solutions that were better than the original
design. Also while tying into the existing house, he identified several
areas of substandard structure which he was able to upgrade so it was fixed
correctly. Overall Dan's work was top notch in every respect, he truly looks
out for his customers best interest."

"Dan Apgar is a skilled carpenter who does remarkably good work. He has the kind of attention to details that makes the difference between an adequate job and an excellent one. He is also reliable and trustworthy, two traits that are almost as important as his skills. And his coworkers follow his lead. When you hire Dan, you can have confidence that the job will get done right."

"Having dealt with many contractors over the last 30 years, we can honestly say finding Dan Apgar was our good fortune.
Dan’s experience and craftsmanship set him above the rest. He gives an honest assessment of what is practical and builds sturdy attractive structures meant to last. His work is impeccable. If necessary, he calls in and coordinates other professionals of equal caliber to get the job done properly.
Dan’s work ethic is above reproach. He returns calls, shows up when promised, and completes the job on schedule. He is a gentleman who is a pleasure to do business with.
Dan restored the front of our 1860s row house with replacement windows, alley gate, and cellar door. He was additionally able to creatively rework the entryway, which had been covered over with an inappropriate 1970s façade, restoring it to its original elegance with a fine quality hardwood door and transom. Dan acquired all necessary building permits and adhered to environmental requirements. Where brickwork needed repair, he brought in a top-notch mason and also assisted us in arranging for a fabulous painter. The finished job is absolutely awesome; better than we had imagined. Passersby stop and comment on how nice our row house looks, and locals have asked for our contractors name and number.
As we continue on with our restoration, Dan’s our man!"

"Dan came to our home last year to help us install a French door for our patio. I had called him on the phone to ask him a question early Sat morning and he was downstairs making sure the door was perfect where it met the wall. I started to laugh and was amazed that he was there on his day off to make sure the door was absolutely perfect for us. When we saw the craftsmanship and quality of his work we knew we needed to hire him again for our kitchen renovation. Mr. Apgar not only took the time to work with us through the hard going ideas of layout and technical needs. He also brought in a team of hard working and wonderful technical people which included the plumber, the electrician and the kitchen cabinet designer. What I thought was going to be a nightmare project became something more of a dream come true. We love the workmanship that he did on our kitchen and the time he spent getting the job done was actually inspiring.
They were organized and very thoughtful of our daily presence. Two small children needed breakfast every morning and nap time - So it was interesting. There were some hidden unwanted treasures found and Dan took care of everything, so we didn't even need to worry about it. I can't say enough good things about Apgar construction. It is very hard to find people this dedicated to work performance and dealing with clients design/construction needs. I am going to be hiring Apgar construction for all my home projects!
THANK YOU! We LOVE our kitchen!!!"

"We’ve worked with Dan and his team on several projects from simple window/door replacements, to a complete re-do of our second floor, and most recently a 1,300 sq.ft. first and second floor addition. Dan is responsible, accountable, collaborative and fair. His subcontractors are all good people that do quality work. We’ll use Dan for our next project and we have no hesitation recommending him to others."

"Renovation projects are always stressful, but renovating a home in the US, while living on the other side of the Atlantic, adds new meaning to the word challenging. We, however, were fortunate enough to find Dan Apgar. He was receptive to our ideas and clear in his time schedules. Dan’s precise, organized and neat work style gave us a sense of security that everything was being done exactly the way we discussed the plans. Indeed, we returned each visit to find our home neatly cleaned up and growing exactly as we had envisioned it. Excellent craftsmanship and a good eye for details made everything from the foundations to the finishing touches exceed all of our expectations. Dan was always ready to go the extra step and help us out with things that needed to be done, even if we had not foreseen their necessity from the start. Good, clear and timely communication made him an exceptional contractor to work with. We are delighted with our renovation and can say that we would not have changed anything. Thank you Dan."
I. Erhardt - Rosemont, NJ
"We contracted with Apgar Construction to put a very sizable addition on our house. The project was a huge undertaking for us, and we had never been involved in anything like this. From the beginning, Dan Apgar guided us through the renovation process, worked as a liaison with our architect, and worked hard to communicate with us every step of the way. Dan kept us informed through the whole process and helped guide us through the many decisions we needed to make. Our project came in on time, and on budget.
We couldn’t be happier with the quality of work - the attention to detail, the fine craftsmanship - down to the last detail, everything was done with superb quality. At the time of the renovation, we were living in our home and were always impressed and very appreciative of how clean and neat Dan kept everything. He definitely went “the extra mile” on many occasions to ensure that things were done properly and would suit our needs.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Dan and with all those he subcontracted with. We’ve had him back several times since the addition to do smaller jobs and continue to be impressed. It is with absolutely no reservation that we highly recommend his work."
K. Vandegrift - Stockton, NJ
"Dan is extremely skilled and accomplished professional and deserves all the praise that he receives. Our project was completed on-time and was shaped in a better direction because of Dan's years of experience, knowledge and vision. Dan not only does good work, but keeps you up-to-date on the progress that has been made and helps you through all the decisions that need to be made. Without a doubt, I will recommend Dan and his subcontractors to others for any project of any size. Also, we will use him again for any future projects."
"My husband and I hired Dan to renovate our home and to build an addition. His work ethic and attention to detail are exemplary and his workmanship is superb. I have recommended him to friends and have hired him on several occasions to complete major repairs on my parents' home."
