About us

David Horton, Licensed General Contractor #552428

A licensed General Contractor since 1988, my love of carpentry, building, and problem solving began at an early age. In my late twenties, this turned into a full time profession and I began to assemble a high quality team of subcontractors and artisans to work with me. The two things I enjoy most about my work is the partnerships I develop with my clients and working with quality teams to create projects I can be proud of. A San Francisco native, I live in Marin County.

DLH Construction is a family run business that was established in 1988. Over the years, we have completed a great variety of projects from simple dry rot repairs to multi-phase historical home renovations and restaurant models. We had a restaurant project featured in the San Francisco Chronicle and a lighting magazine.

Ultimately, our goal is to provide only the highest quality workmanship in order to create beautiful and functional spaces that will be enjoyed for many years.

Philosophy
Your home or business is important to you so it is important to us. Teamwork, excellent communication, high professional and ethical standards, and skilled craftsmanship is how we get the job done. We are there for you.

Personal attention to each job:
Each client receives one-on-one attention through the entire project. Our attention to detail and our attention to our clients is how we establish long lasting working relationships with our clients

Client Participation
To ensure our clients’ needs are satisfied we schedule regular “check-in” meetings with our clients to ensure that we are all “on the same page.” We are readily available to answer questions, talk about design and address any concerns. After all, it’s our job to make our clients’ dream a reality.

Professionalism
We maintain a consistently high level of professional care and responsibility in each project. We guarantee all of our work to be of the highest quality, as we know our clients would expect nothing less. Your project is our project.

Teamwork
In addition to our subcontractors, we team up with architects, interior designers, and engineers to create a finished project that we can all be proud of.
