DIRECT BUILD OF ATLANTA   Industry Affiliations and Certifications




dBAtlanta is tremendously proud of our many industry affiliations, memberships, and certifications, because they prove that we are dedicated to education, industry standards, and excellence. They also prove that our clients can trust that we are highly experienced in renovations, remodeling, and designing and building custom homes. Equally important, our clients can trust that our product and materials installations are performed within the manufacturer's exact specifications and carry the full manufacturer's warranty, and our own quality workmanship is guaranteed to be free from defects for a full year.

Why Is It Important To

Be Licensed and Insured?

Many homeowners don't understand how important it is for a contractor to be licensed and insured, but these two things are crucial before beginning any home improvement project. Licensing shows that a contractor has an established business, but more importantly, licensing ensures that you are protected if you have a problem at any time while your project is in the works or if a dispute arises. A licensed contractor is more likely to respond to you and work with you to solve the problem, because if they don't, they risk losing their license.


Second, the right insurance coverage will protect if you  an accident occurs on your property. If a contractor does not have adequate and current insurance coverage and an accident occurs, you could be held responsible and made to pay damages, so it's important that every contractor has a certificate that proves insurance coverage for both liability and workers’ compensation before any home improvement project begins.




Before we begin any home improvement project, dBAtlanta provides our license and proof of insurance coverage, because both are essential for your protection.


FULLY LICENSED: We are licensed as a residential and general contractor in the State of Georgia and our license number is #RBCO 005062.

Our Guarantee

We make sure you're completely satisfied with the quality of our work by offering both manufacturer product warranties and our own warranty of quality workmanship for one full year. No other renovation and remodeling company in Georgia offers this level of comprehensive protection.

We are a factory-certified contractor for the manufacturers whose products and materials we install, so dBAtlanta offers the full warranty provided by each manufacturer. (Only a contractor that has invested the time and effort to become fully certified can provide this important quality protection!)

In addition, our own quality workmanship warranty insures that all labor will be free from defects in workmanship for a full year, starting on the day your project is completed. If you have a problem with our work within the first year, we will promptly repair or replace the defective materials or workmanship at our sole cost and expense, as long as the problem was not caused by accident or abuse.
