What Our Clients Are Saying

  • Brian,

    What a great pleasure it has been to work with you and your DL Miner staff during this exciting Stone Harbor project. As first time home builders, we commenced the project uncertain of the process only to come out the other end elated with the finished product. Your impressive team patiently explained every detail of the project and offered multiple options on each of them. Your team worked closely with us and our North Jersey architects 24/7 to make sure nothing was overlooked. We benefited from your invaluable expertise on marine environment construction and materials, borough ordinances, reputable subs, etc. You graciously facilitated deliveries of all kinds on-site and at your shop. And you listened carefully to each of our concerns, helped us work through them and waited until we were ready to proceed. We could not be happier to have chosen DL Miner to build the home we have always dreamed of. The quality of our home is a testament to your professionalism and we wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to re-up with DL Miner for round two. Stay tuned!

    With our sincere thanks for making it possible,

    — RD and SD,

  • We want to tell you how happy we have been working with you during the construction of our new home in Avalon, NJ. It has been a pleasure working from start to finish with your team. Having to travel almost two hours to NJ was made easy with your constant phone calls, emails, pictures and updates that we felt as if we were there every day. The level of detail was apparent when we received your proposal. The continued detail in answering our questions, giving suggestions, addressing budgets and constant connection made the building of our home seamless.

    Jim, you have continued to follow up and make sure we have no concerns or unfinished matters. We are confident that we can contact you in the future and you will be just as helpful and diligent. The final product is beautiful and we look forward to creating many special memories in our new home. We also look forward to working with the D. L. Miner Property Management team for all-season home maintenance.

    Thank you and know we would be pleased to refer D. L. Miner Construction for any future projects.

    All the best,

    — M M,


  • Dan, Barbara and I thank you for all your work calling, texting, searching, finding, scheduling, cajoling, supporting, carrying and even sweeping. You have been at the table since the beginning of the project, one year ago. Surely without your work, this house could not have been done in less than a year.

    We appreciate how you are always available and responsive 24/7. You made sure things got delivered and done. We consider you not as our builder, but as our friend. That made working with you a pleasure.

    With many thanks,

    — B B,


  • Don, thank you. It has been a wonderful 18  years. You are the best home builder I have ever dealt with. I wish you great success. If you ever need a reference or I can do anything for you please call on me and J. You have always been there for us. Blessing to you, you are a great person, business man, and friend.

  • I wanted to write and thank you for the professional expertise and attention to detail that D. L. Miner provided during the construction of our residence in Avalon.

    We feel fortunate to have found a builder that is knowledgeable, responsible, and able to provide the attention to detail that will continually enhance the beauty of our home.

    Thank you and I would not hesitate to recommend D. L. Miner to prospective home builders.

    Best regards,

  • We wanted to write this note to convey our thoughts on D. L. Miner and Dan Ball who completed a renovation of our home in Stone Harbor, NJ during 2016. We have completed several home projects over the years in various locations and can say without reservation that Dan Ball and DL Miner were a pleasure to work with. Their honesty, respect, and good ideas brought to the project were greatly appreciated. The way they dealt with and handled unforeseen existing conditions with poise and directness was helpful. The quality of the workmanship and finishing was excellent as was the quality of the people that worked on the project. The people were friendly and accommodating and they really care about the quality of their work. The finished project is beautiful and we are extremely pleased with the outcome.
    We highly recommend Dan Ball and D. L. Miner for a new build or renovation. The next time we have a building project we won’t even bother speaking with anyone else. We will use Dan and D. L. Miner.

  • Didi and I want to thank you and your entire staff for building our home on the bay in Stone Harbor. From the moment we first discussed this project with you in June 2015 until we moved into our home in mid-May (ahead of schedule), it’s been a pleasure to work with you and your team. Everybody we have dealt with has been prompt, pleasant, and respectful. When we have had questions or if an issue arose during the process, we received quick attention with a focus upon getting it right.

    The subcontractors you used on this project are like an extension of your company. They were great. It’s been about 10 weeks since we moved into our home and we are so glad we had this home built by DL Miner.


    — B S,

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you. What can I say, other than it’s perfect. Angie and I have been dreaming of this house since we married 19 years ago today. It was worth the wait.

    PS – The kids may be happier than we are.

  • Now that my home has been completed, I want to share with you the wonderful working experience that I had with Brian Stuart, you, and your entire staff. At the bidding process, I was told by several individuals that D.L. Miner Construction would be the right choice to build my home, and at first, I was not sure if that were the case. However, having had the opportunity to listen to the presentation that both Brian, and you made at my home – I was convinced.

    I am happy to offer any comments to any potential customers who you would like me to speak with. As you know, I think very highly of the quality of your work that you are now building two of my friends’ homes.

    Again Don and Brian, I wish you all the very best, and please express my sincere thanks to your entire staff.

    — J F S,


  • The quality of their workmanship is first-rate and all follow-up matters have been attended to in a timely manner. Our overall impression is that the key members of the D.L. Miner construction staff take personal pride in the finished project – almost like it is their own home.

    We urge anyone considering building at the shore to consider D.L. Miner. We can recommend them highly without reservation.

    — K and E W,

    Stone Harbor

  • D.L. Miner’s final product is impeccable. Their workmanship is some of the finest we have seen. They were able to build our house in the time frame we requested; they continue to follow up should any matter arise, and we are delighted that we chose them to build our house. First impressions, in this case, are legitimately quite impressive.

    — E and R S,


  • We would highly recommend Don and his staff for any project in Avalon. He developed accurate budget numbers and followed through to meet them. There are several other very good builders for high-end projects in the area, but some of them would not even commit to developing a budget before we began and simply wanted to work on a time and material basis, which is likely to end up being much more expensive than someone who commits to a number and does what it takes to meet it.

    — M R,


  • Thank you for everything; It was an absolute pleasure working with you.  You not only met but exceeded our expectations for the entire remodel.  Our family could not be happier with the house and we are so proud to show it off.

    — T,
  • I don’t know where to begin in thanking you all because the beach house was completed way ahead of time and turned out better than I ever expected!

    You all are the best!

    Thank you all for making my vacation home such a pleasant place to be!

  • The building of our home in Stone Harbor by D.L. Miner Construction Co. was an enjoyable experience for us. Diana and I enjoyed working with you and the entire D. L. Miner team. We continually appreciated the professionalism of all contributors to the high quality work being performed over and over again as the home was being constructed.

  • Anne and I would like to thank you for a wonderful experience while refurbishing our condominium.  The work of D.L. Miner was everything we had heard about and more.  The attention to detail was always present.  Jim, you were amazing.  Anne and I called you the magician because you did earn the title.  You always made it happen and always with a smile.

    We enjoyed working with you and now consider you our friend.

    — A and TG,
  • Now that we have been in our home in Avalon for a little over a year, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and all of your staff and subcontractors for making the difficult task of constructing our home a pleasant and rewarding experience. The quality and the workmanship produced by you and your team is outstanding and speaks for itself.

    — F M M,


  • We also appreciated the way Jim kept us informed at every stage on a regular basis. His continual communication left nothing to chance. Once the project got underway, we were amazed at how swiftly and smoothly things moved along. Each stage completed in a timely manner and never dragged out. Despite all the activity in our home during the renovations, our house was left pristine, as great care was taken to protect flooring and furniture.

    — V and B L,


  • We have just finished our first season in the new house “that Brian built.” I cannot tell you how thrilled we are with the work you did – not only is it exactly what we wanted – but delivered ahead of time and under budget!

    — JC and JA,


  • Brian, you deserve the fullest credit for the outstanding job you did on our spectacular home. From start to finish you distinguished yourself with your expertise, honest and precise communication skills and attention to cost and detail. We would be happy to share our overwhelming positive experiences whenever helpful to you.

    Warmest wishes for continued success,

    — M and M B,


  • Given the completion of my house in Avalon, I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with my decision to retain D.L. Miner Construction. I had never built a new house before, but certainly had heard horror stories from many, and came to the project with some trepidation. The experience was such an enjoyable one, however, I actually would love to do it again.


    — JJ M,


  • Bob and I can hardly find the words to express our appreciation for D.L. Miner Construction’s work on our beautiful bay front home. You have made our dream a stunning reality.

    — D and B I,


  • I just wanted to let you know how happy we are with the renovation of our house on 106th Street in Stone Harbor. In particular, I have to commend Brian Stuart on his excellent work. He handled this project flawlessly. He kept me well informed and was able to maintain a very aggressive timetable. It is evident that Brian takes great pride in his work and in his ability to keep his customers informed. Brian commands the respect of the subcontractors. Almost every subcontractor I spoke with mentioned how “tough” Brian is, but also how much they enjoy working with him.

  • The building of our home in Stone Harbor by D. L. Miner Construction was an enjoyable experience for us. Diana and I enjoyed working with the entire D. L. Miner team. We continually appreciated the professionalism of all contributors to the high quality work being performed. Your reputation as a high end builder is warranted and we will highly recommend D. L. Miner to anyone interested in building on 7 Mile Island and for that matter anywhere.

    — J and D P,

  • Our home is a masterpiece that your crew has put together. Our family wants to thank Brian andDave and your crew for doing such fine work on this beautiful home. We plan on having many good memories here.
