Testimonials

Joanne and I would like to thank you for a job very well done. We could not be happier with the way things turned out with our renovation. The bedrooms are like brand new, the bathroom is absolutely fantastic and sooo much better than what we had. You definitely have this business down to a science. From the time we first met to the end of our project, it was a pleasure having you as our contractor. Each of the subs and vendors you introduced us to were extremely helpful and very professional, not to mention the great quality of their workmanship. If ever you are looking for a referral for a potential customer, please do not hesitate to reach out – it would be my sincere pleasure to let them know what a great experience we had working with you and your crews. I’d like to close by thanking your son Cam for all of his hard work during the time you guys were here. He sure is a hard working young man who has a bright future ahead of him when dad gets too old to swing the hammer (LOL). As the old saying goes, “the apple does not fall far from the tree.” Thanks again for everything.

We just wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful job on our screened-in / glass porch. From the start we were impressed with your professionalism, especially the time you took to research products that would meet our needs. We had an idea of what we wanted and you took those ideas and made some fantastic recommendations. Your commitment in arriving to the job site as scheduled everyday is a demonstration to the partnership you build with your customers. I was truly impressed with the written quote and pre-construction meeting which was detailed and answered many questions we may have had. We would recommend your services to anyone! Best regards, Chris and Patty

The renovations to our home involved major restructuring and rebuilding to an old (and very un-square) structure. As I am sure any carpenter will attest, working within the confines imposed by an older home is difficult at best-we learned first hand how frustrating wavy floors and ceilings and crooked walls can be.  Dave’s professional skill and expertise in remodeling allowed us to incorporate new and updated materials into our existing structures in such a way that we could maintain the original charm of our home. Throughout these renovations Dave was instrumental in providing valuable suggestions and insights regarding a proposed idea’s aesthetic appeal. – Peter & Gina Westford, MA

The remodel of our kitchen by SDCookman exceeded our expectations, just as David promised!  This was evidenced by superior construction and seamless coordination of all aspects of the job.  All our questions were met with patience, professionalism and an impressive amount of knowledge. We appreciated the very organized contract that explained ours costs and timelines, too.  We are relieved to find a contractor that we can trust and we know will deliver a quality service.

Dave refinished our basement and replace our roof. We were delighted with the results. The work was completed with both time frame and cost estimates being met.  We fully intend to hire his services again in the future, as we are extremely impressed by his professionalism, integrity and high quality of work. – Jeff & Jen Manchester, NH

I purchased a home that needed a new roof and a master bedroom. Dave quoted a fair price, got the work done in a timely manner, and went above and beyond my expectations! He communicated with me throughout the process, made recommendations about other things that needed my attention and referred me to the right people to get those jobs done. By the time he left the work was done and you could not even tell that he had been there – not one single nail or piece of shingle was left anywhere. I could not be happier! Peter, Raymond NH

Dear David: This is the third project you have completed at my home. This last one was by far the most involved and required the most creative thinking to produce the results I wanted to achieve. Adding a dormer to an existing structure is more complex and challenging than just building an addition, I know now. l most appreciated your patience in answering any and every (and relentless) question and explaining what the problem was and what methods could be used to solve it (especially relative to the ceiling in the garage beneath the dormer). Each time you offered alternative solutions and the trade-off and probable cost for each. The final decision was always mine. With your guidance it appears that I made all the right decisions! I especially want to thank you for treating my home with as much respect and care as you do your own home. Your cleaning up at the end of each day and your careful oversight of the subcontractors you hired left my home in the same orderly condition as before you began the project. And in some instances you improved things without calling attention to the many little extras that I continue to discover even today. Your attention to detail and personal care that everything be done perfectly has made all the difference for me. And insured my absolute satisfaction with a job well done! I highly recommend your work without hesitation and without qualification to anyone who is considering signing a contract for your services. Please feel free to use me as a reference. Best wishes, Mary Ann C., Manchester, NH

Please let this letter serve as my personal and professional reference for David Cookman doing business as S.D. Cookman Building and Remodeling. I have had the good fortune to work with Dave on both a personal level for projects at my home and on a professional level while employed at the same company. In both cases, Dave always delivered a quality product with a successful outcome. Dave is very reliable and trustworthy in his dealings and I would not hesitate to recommend him for building and remodeling projects. Patricia S., Manchester, NH

Dear S.D. Cookman Building & Remodeling, Thank you for your sponsorship, we couldn’t have done it without you. You helped us give back to a community that was in great need of assistance. We traveled to Florida, to a city called Lake Worth, which is located just south of West Palm Beach. Lake Worth is considered a slum of Palm Beach County. When we arrived we realized right away that this was where the help was needed and deserved. There was trash all over the city, gang symbols tagged on homes and buildings, drug deals going on in the streets, and cops everywhere. Because of you, we were able to accomplish the following; framing an entire house, siding a house, painting the entire interior of a house, landscaping two different yards, complete the roofing for a house, prime the outside of a house, and have the experience of a lifetime. Thank you so very much for supporting us on our endeavor to give back to a community during April Vacation, it meant a lot to have your support. We proudly wore your shirts on the first day on the jobsite, and many wore them multiple times throughout the week. It was a tremendous experience and we can’t thank you enough for your support. With Great Appreciation, Goffstown Habitat Group
