About Us

The Talent and Reputation Behind Your Contractors on the East-End of Long Island in the Hamptons

FD Building is a versatile renovation firm co-founded by Dennis Ketcham and Michael Alberti, two experienced carpenters with a deep understanding of the craft and business of remodeling. These guys are at the vanguard of design, and their aim is to lead you to the finished product that you’ve imagined.

With over 30 years of experience between them and a fresh approach to project management, Dennis and Mike work to marry an artisan’s attention to work quality and detail with a focus on efficiency and innovation. They not only have a drive for design, but the logistical know how to delegate the completion of the operation.

The collective minds behind FD Building are dedicated to evoking your own creative potential to personalize your new purchase, walking you through the steps of your project and what it will take to bring it to fruition, from each specific process and price point, to what for and why. Rest assured FDB has their brains wrapped around the process and their hearts focused on your needs.

FD Building mixes a designer’s cocktail of labor and precision based assets and technology, maintaining a well rounded mindset in all all areas of operation. Each job is performed to standards that are above and beyond the generic general contractors, with results that are no less than what to expect from a baseline Hamptons ascetic.

No job is too big or too small, and FDB is more than resourceful enough to employ the right people for the job. Renovations can be an overwhelming process, but their 150 plus subcontractors are vetted based on their knowledge, expertise, and overall craftsmanship to meet the paradigm set forth by Dennis and Michael. This combined with the careful selection of consolidated materials and products further facilitates the process and alleviates the stress on you.
