Dear Dave,

We chose and continue to choose Clifton Homes and Uptown Kitchens for our home remodeling needs because of their unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction and quality. Dave Ervin has many years of experience in the home construction industry. He is honest, friendly and very comfortable to be around as is all of his staff. He employs top notch craftsmen and utilizes only the best construction materials. All the little details are addressed and no corners are cut. Dave is “hands on” and always in communication with the homeowner.

All work is completed on time and in the cleanest way possible. The work site is cleaned up at the end of each day to reduce the impact on daily life. Clifton Homes performed a complete renovation of our homes’s exterior and remodeled our two full bathrooms as well. Uptown Kitchens staff spent a lot of time helping us select the cabinetry and hardware for our bathrooms. Lets face it…home remodeling projects can be very stressful events. If you want the least amount of stress and an overall experience that exceeds your expectations, we recommend Clifton Homes, Uptown Kitchens and Dave Ervin. “

Hi, Dave

Pat and I sincerely appreciated the beautiful flowers you sent. The Thanksgiving flowers go perfectly and highlight the color of our beautiful new Kitchen.

Dave, when Pat and I started on this design journey we could only vision our Tuscan concept. With your design concepts and Beckim’s craftsmanship you made our vision and design a reality. We knew when we envisioned the Tuscan concept that most of our friends and family would see the new kitchen and would either say “Wow” or just that’s nice. Well, I can share with you there have been no “That’s Nice”.

Hi Dave,

As first-time homeowners, we feel incredibly lucky to have found David Ervin and his team at Clifton Homes.  Having not undertaken any previous renovations, we felt we were in great hands from the moment we interviewed David.  He truly listened to our ideas and constraints, offered honest feedback, and worked with us to come up with a renovation plan that was agreeable and fair.  

David was incredibly organized and thorough.  We were given a schedule that outlined the work that would be done on each day of the renovation.  If the schedule changed, he would email us and tell us the changes for the week.  Best of all, the team adhered to that schedule.  This was especially important to us, as we were moving from out of state, and weren’t always on site.  We always knew what to expect, and we were able to move in to our new home exactly as scheduled.

The work that David and his team performed was done with the highest level of skill and precision.  When little– and not so little– issues came up as we peeled back the layers of our 30 year old home, David offered thoughtful solutions.  Changes to cost and time were always presented in a fair and reasonable manner.  While we had already chosen a kitchen designer prior to meeting David, he and his sister Mary (from Uptown Kitchens) went out of their way to help us choose the finishing touches, and integrate the kitchen with the rest of the first floor.  They also worked seamlessly with our kitchen designers, cabinet company, and even appliance suppliers to ensure the timely and flawless installation of our kitchen fixtures.

We were referred to David Ervin and Clifton Homes through one of David’s subcontractors, who said if he were renovating his own home, the only contractor he would trust would be David.  In fact, that sentiment was echoed by nearly every worker we spoke to during the course of our 3 month renovation- they all enjoyed working with David because he is fair and doesn’t believe in cutting corners, ensuring that he does a great job every time.  Our family- and now nearly everyone that comes in to our home- agrees.

Finally, David has provided a personal touch, which we have valued immensely.  Throughout the renovation process, he and his team were especially careful and conscious of the work they performed in and around our baby’s room- taking special precautions for cleaning and sealing off spaces.  And, following Hurricane Irene, which flooded our basement shortly after we moved, David came by to check on us and our home, even though he had already completed his work with us weeks earlier.

We would hire David Ervin and Clifton Homes again without reservation, and as such, give him our highest recommendation.

Dear Dave,

Thank you for the lovely flower arrangement . It was so thoughtful of you to send it. It made the perfect centerpiece for our thanksgiving table. Using our new kitchen for the first holiday was most enjoyable ! We had almost 30 people and the kitchen design could not have been better ! There was so much room and all the guests could move around with ease. The cooking and serving was so easy with the new appliances and their placement.

We couldn’t be happier !

Thank you again. Hope your holiday was good.

Best regards,

Laurie and John Heffernan


Dear Dave,

Dave Ervin/Clifton Homes was recommended to us about two years ago.  Since then he has done numerous projects for us – replaced roof and windows, installed a new composite deck, is in the process of renovating one of our bathrooms and we are in the planning stages to re-model our kitchen this summer.  All of these jobs were started and completed on time with very little interruption to us.  He’s crews are all diligent, hard working and very professional.  We highly recommend Dave Ervin and Clifton Homes for any project you might be considering.

Dear Dave,

Just thought you both would be interested and happy as we were with some “Expert” comments about our kitchen.

Last weekend I had a Surprise Party for Jane’s 50th and we had a “few” people over.  The party list grew to 35.  Anyway, the party was a great success with plenty of room for all.  I had the dinner catered by a local gentleman who works small jobs out of his home.  He use to run Anton’s in Lambertville but gave it up due to the long hours.  He does catering part time for many home parties throughout the area.

He was absolutely Awe Struck by our Beautiful and Functional Kitchen!  He found the kitchen easy to work in and had plenty of room even though most of the 35 people were around the island and new eating area. His comments were that it was the nicest kitchen he had been in which he called Warm and Inviting for a small or large group.  He indicated he has seen many kitchens in Million Dollar homes with long island and poor layouts that didn’t work and were poor functionally.

The next day I returned his dishes to his home and he was still talking about the Kitchen with his wife!

We were very proud to hear those nice words and, of course, I let him know who did the design and construction!
