I have hired about a dozen general contractors over the last twenty years, and D.F. Poley stands with the best of them. Mr. Poley took charge of the project from the very first (I live 150 miles away) and earned my total confidence. He followed through on every detail and made helpful suggestions along the way. I made periodic inspections and can attest to the high quality of his work. A licensed architect also made periodic and final inspections and endorsed my judgment that Dan Poley’s concept of the job, workmanship and final result were nothing short of excellent.

“Our project with D.F. Poley Construction was a very challenging, detail oriented job. It involved the restoration of a unique 98 year old Victorian home. We are more then pleased with the results! Dan’s craftsmanship and attention to detail in his work is outstanding. He is a problem solver, and positive in his approach to handling all kinds of issues. His team is top notch.

We highly recommend Dan F. Poley Construction Inc. for any project you may be considering. He is eager to do the job right. This is a reliable man.”
Lawrence & Cindy Owen - Atlantic City, NJ
My wife and I cannot speak highly enough of D.F. Poley Construction. Dan Poley was our general contractor for the complete remodel of our beach house, which was built in 1922. Dan is as honest as the day is long and always comes up with a solution to the unexpected surprises involved in totally gutting and rebuilding a house. The people he hires display those same traits. We live several states away but they kept us updated regularly of the progress by emailing pictures and telephone calls.

Two things separate D.F. Poley from other contractors: 1) dedication to doing the job perfectly; and 2) the confidence they inspire. At all times we felt that we were in great hands.

Our house looks fantastic, was re-built to be energy efficient and is rock solid. We love it! We can’t imagine any other contractor could have done the job even half as well. Choosing a contractor is difficult but with D.F. Poly the decision is easy.

"As a Realtor, my clients are constantly seeking recommendations for the best contractor / builder to modify their home or create their perfect new dream home. Without hesitation and from personal experience I recommend Dan Poley of D.F. Poley, Construction, Inc. Homes are my business and I need to know who can provide the best service to me and to my clients. I am very careful before I hire someone for myself and before I promote a tradesman to a client. I need to have the confidence that this person will not only deliver what is promised, but will totally satisfy and please them completely.

D. F. Poley Construction, Inc. provides quality work with a creative flair. While I had ideas of what I wanted, they were able to assist me through the entire process with suggestions and alternatives that helped me achieve my ultimate goal. The work was done in a timely manner and my home was not a war zone. They knew I had a budget and once we had a budget set it was adhered to strictly. There were no surprises at the end of the job. Anyone who has done renovations before should really appreciate that. As a Realtor my home serves as a showcase to other potential homebuyers as they can see what can be made possible with a home with potential and a talented contractor like Dan Poley. I am happy to say that many of my clients have already used the services of D.F. Poley Construction, Inc. and like me they are thrilled with the results."

“Dan and his staff were a pleasure to work with and did an excellent job. The project was extremely complicated for a condo as we took down all the walls and installed all new electrical, plumbing, replaced all the windows and soundproofing. Dan was able to work through all the issues and details. One of the most important things with Dan is that he stays with the project, even after completion. If there are any issues or questions, Dan is there and continues to support us. We highly recommend D.F. Poley Construction.”
Terri Bachow PH2M Berkley Tower Atlantic City, NJ
“I contacted you to discuss the possibility that fifteen years later, you and I might again work on the same project….with the feeling I had, sort of like having found my favorite old baseball glove, you and I moved forward on the project. The real pleasure of the project was the fluidity and chemistry of once again working with you. I found the gentleman on your team as well to be cut from the same cloth as you, straight, honorable and with the highest level of integrity in the work they performed. Dan, you are the man! Honor, integrity, quality, chemistry and ease. Truly, cannot wait for our next project together. Please feel free to show our family home, the home you built, whenever you like!”
David Kligerman 702 Harvard Avenue, Ventnor, NJ
“Working with Dan was an absolute pleasure.  The entire process was actually a lot of fun.  Dan is a man with a level of commitment, attention to detail, knowledge of all aspects of the construction process, respect for the client’s needs and human development skills far beyond the norm for someone of his age and profession.  We would recommend D.F. Poley Construction, Inc. without any reservations.”
Nat and Anne Greenfield 313 N. Thurlow Avenue Margate, NJ
“Dan is honest, hard-working and compulsive, three traits which made working with him enjoyable.  As a result of Dan’s ability to “run interference”, we experienced none of the usual problems which generally accompany a major construction project.  Dan always provided us with guidance and his best judgement regarding any issue relating to the project. Dan was in constant contact with us via facsimile and telephone and always alerted us as to any issues and in advance of any decisions we needed to make.   In short, we wholeheartedly recommend D.F. Poley Construction for any construction project you may have.  We will absolutely give Dan our business in the future should the need arise.”

Robert and Kathryn Pincus 102 S. 27th Avenue Longport, NJ
