At DSL Construction & Design, we pride ourselves on meeting – or exceeding – your expectations. In business as DSL for more than two decades, and with nearly 30 years in the building industry, our residential and commercial team has the knowledge, skill, and commitment to deliver what you want.
Our core values shine through in everything we do.
We believe in:
The DSL promise.
We take pride in – and stand by – the quality of our work. Once construction is complete, we provide you with a custom designed warranty (good for up to 10 years on a custom home, for example) in the unlikely event that something goes wrong. You’ll also rest assured with our 24-hour emergency line for urgent matters and guaranteed resolution within 5 days for any non-emergency repairs.
How it all started.
In 1991, well before DSL stood for high speed internet, Don S. Long founded and named his company with his initials. Determined to bring back honesty and integrity into every step of the construction process, Don and his wife, Dianne have been doing precisely that for more than 20 years. They started DSL as a referral-based side business out of their home in the late ‘80s and continue to grow their successful business by word of mouth and a well-earned reputation for having a strong work ethic, determination, passion and vision for delighting customers.
Meet the owners.
A Texas native, Don Long was born with construction in his blood and a passion for perfection in his heart. Following in his father’s footsteps, Don began his career as an electrician. Before long, he entered the world of homebuilding and construction, starting as a customer service representative for a major national homebuilder. Don quickly climbed the ranks of the building industry, taking on everything from general contracting and construction management to developing subdivisions to building model homes. He also spent three years as a partner in a national retail and construction company. The 17 years Don spent working for others brought him invaluable skills and experience. He founded (and to this day runs) DSL with a belief that imparting his personal values improves the level of service in the construction industry.
Dianne Long, Don’s wife and business partner from the start, is a native Texan as well. A successful entrepreneur of her own right, Dianne owned and ran a cosmetics business in Friendswood, TX before committing herself full time to DSL. Her keen eye, woman’s perspective and stellar organization skills keep everything (and everyone) running smoothly as the company’s accounting manager.
The Longs have been happily married for 25 years and live in Pearland, TX, not far from the company headquarters, with their two teenage children. In addition to successfully running their business together, Don and Dianne are heavily involved in their kids’ extracurricular activities.
