CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE COMMENTS
We bought a Clemente house that was mostly completed and advertised as ready for new owner’s “touches” and our experience could not have been better. The Clemente team really listened to us and were extraordinarily flexible and helpful in making decisions on finishes we wanted. Deb’s renderings were a great help in visualizing what was planned and were amazingly true to the final product.
David’s many years of building experience in the Lawrence community and relationships with vendors resulted in excellent craftsmanship and cost savings without compromising quality. David, Deb and Dominic are genuinely good trustworthy people who take pride in their work. It was a great collaboration.

My husband and I first met David in 2013, when we were relocating to Kansas from the East Coast area. As we searched for the perfect house and came up with nothing, our eyes were drawn back to a particular home we liked…which was not for sale. We did a little research and found out the builder was David Clemente. We arranged a meeting with him and discussed him building a home for us as our builder. At the time, vacant lots were limited and he suggested we may be interested in purchasing a home that needed a some renovations. I was a little hesitant, and did not have the vision they had. Fortunately, my husband and David persuaded me on a particular home.
Working with David, and his wife Deb, on our renovation was one of the best experiences and decisions we have ever made in purchasing a home. Their creative vision and expertise, along with their attention to detail, continued to surprise and amaze us every step of the way. Our friendship continues today and they are now helping us renovate our lake house which is 675 mile away from Lawrence, Kansas, in Lake Cumberland, Kentucky.
What they bring to the table far exceeds any expectations we had. We have total trust and faith in the two of them and would recommend them highly to anyone who wants more than a builder on a project. With the Clemente team you not only get an architect and an artist, but also a couple who works with the highest degree of integrity, honesty, and professionalism, who are patient and trustworthy, and someone you will call your friends for years to come.

My husband and I have worked on 4 projects with David and Deb and are ready to start our 5th. They built a family room addition at our former home in West Lawrence, two custom homes that were sold before they were finished, as well as our current home in East Lawrence which has been featured in the newspaper as well as on two home tours.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about the Clemente team. David has a unique blend of architectural and construction skills, with an artistic bent. Deb brings the skills of a true artist — design principles, a master at color selection, and an incredible vision. They are not afraid to try new things, to be creative, and think “outside the lines”. Another skill often under appreciated is the ability to work through the red tape involved in building in Lawrence — from permits to variances to approvals and workarounds. In all of our projects we gave them 100% creative license which included the selection of tile, paint, carpet, stain, doors, cabinets, etc. They did not disappoint.

My experience with Dave and his team was excellent. Every issue in the the process that came up, he was able to come up with a great way to bridge it, and in some attractive and well constructed way. You could tell he's got decades of knowledge he brings to his projects. What most impressed me was his design-sense. Lots of folks can build things, but Dave has an ability to make it art, and that's a rare gift.
David Clemente is responsible for taking our vague general idea and turning it in to something real. Where we have only average sense for practical architectural style, color tones, setting and environment, or balancing those things, Dave and company excel at them. Dave collaborates with his wife Debra for concepts. Owner's general concepts go in…something beautiful and practical come out.
