Our installation for this project was completed by Dan DeVries, owner of Authentic Installations and his assistant Adrian Groeneveld. Dan rapidly assessed what was involved and approached the situation with obvious ease. He explained the procedure he would use, what his assistant was responsible for and his time estimate to complete the job. Upon completion it was evident that Dan was well versed in his trade to a degree that exceeded my expectations. He functions in an organized, deliberate fashion with due consideration for a superior result. Similarly, Adrian was an obvious asset to the task at hand who harbors standards not unlike those of Dan. I would not hesitate to employ Dan or his assistant Adrian in a similar capacity in the future. Further, I would strongly recommend Authentic Installations as a first rate company to anyone requiring their area of expertise.

Dan is a very knowledgeable contractor & gave me an extremely accurate estimate of the time my windows would take to install. The fact that it took less time was due to the efficiency & teamwork of the crew. They were considerate of my home & garden & cleaned up after themselves. I had chosen a product he was not familiar with, but we were both very happy with the outcome. I highly recommend Dan DeVries for your contracting needs.

Dan DeVries of Authentic Installations replaced 29 windows, 2 patio sliding doors and a front and back door in our home, in January 2016. The work was completed in the time frame given, was of excellent quality and workmanship, and all the appropriate clean-up around our house was also done. Dan was very personable and thoroughly professional, kept us informed throughout the entire process of what was being done and was always willing to answer any questions we had. Our home looks like it has literally had a “face-lift” and we love the updated appearance! We would highly recommend him for any window/door installation needs you may have.

Dan DeVries is hard-working, quick, honest, skillful and creative. we told him what we wanted, walls around the existing carport, a roof over our entrance and he designed and completed the work to our complete satisfaction. His connections within related trades gave us price advantages and quality referrals for parts of the renovation we took on ourselves. We have had countless positive reactions from friends and neighbors for these upgrades to our home and would ask him back again’
Genuine – try honest, frank, sincere, unpretentious or skillful might fit better!

We couldn’t be happier with the quality of our windows and the quality of installation. We had a great experience dealing with Dan. He provided us with several options and solutions for our interior and exterior window trim. Dan was very reliable, time efficient and extremely knowledgeable with this line of work. We highly recommend Authentic Installations!
Our house is 114 years old and I have had Authentic Installations replace almost half the windows in my house and currently have the remaining windows on order. (Doing it in 3 phases.) Both times the windows were installed brilliantly. They were made to look like the old wooden double hung windows original to the house and retrofitted from the inside so that the outside of the house was not disturbed as we had just had it painted. They were very efficient with the installation and they cleaned everything up at the end of the day. They are very professional and easy to deal with. Dan and his crew were always here on time and with smiles on their faces. I would recommend Authentic Installations in a heart beat!
