Notice from Webmaster !

This section is no longer mainatained and is quite dated. You may still find some useful information here. Most neighbors, these days, just post their need in our Facebook private group page. Replies with suggestions and references from other neighbors magically appear rather quickly. DCFW is a very friendly, inclusive and helpful neighborhood.

Business Recommendations

Word of mouth is the best reference when it comes to local businesses and contractors. Listed here are businesses owned by our DCFW neighbors and contractors recommended by your neighbors. If you would like to add a neighborhood business or recommend a contractor, please contact us and we'll add it to the list.

Category missing? Just ask, we'll add it.

This contractor list is intended as a tool to help homeowners. Homeowners should never depend on a single tool. Instead they should use all tools available and then depend only on their own common sense to make a buying decision. Since the contractor list is based entirely on opinions of the homeowners interviewed, the DCFW Board makes no predictions or guarantees, express or implied, about the quality of any of the work a contractor will provide. Nor does the DCFW Board accept any liability whatsoever for any harm that may come from the using the services of a contractor included on the list. Any person or entity that utilizes the services of a contractor included on this list does so at his or her own risk.
