He believes that remodeling a home can be stressful enough, and with DBC he has pursued creating a trustworthy company that focuses on the customer’s experience and peace of mind.

Doug and his wife, Andrea and their two children reside in Millcreek. They love the Erie region and make the most of the resources we have here. In the winter you can find them sledding and skiing, and in the summer enjoying our lake front views and restaurants!
