Atlanta Design & Build - We Can Do It

We Can Do It!

Founded in 1996 by H. Dale Contant, CR, MCR, CRPM, UDCP, as Sun-Fun Remodeling Inc., our company built a reputation as a quality provider of remodeling services. Our projects began as "outdoor" remodeling specialties: decks, screened porches, three-season rooms, arbors, room additions, etc. We have always taken pride in the high level of customer support delivered to each project.

Celebrating 20 years of remodeling in Atlanta

Over the years, as our skills and expertise expanded, we changed our name to Atlanta Design & Build to better represent who we are.

Our talents extend beyond the outdoor arena to include: bathroom remodeling, master-bath suite renovations and additions, total kitchen remodeling, basement renovations, whole-house renovations as well as interior and exterior specialties! Recognition received for our award-winning designs also established us as a full-service design/build organization, able to meet all customer requirements with our creative in-house design team.
