When I first heard about DRIA Home Builders, I thought it sounded super-convenient. Renovation costs in minutes? I loved the idea, but I worried about whether the workmanship would be any good. I didn't want to invest time and money on a service that created additional costs that weren't any better than the tasks I could DIY"
