My husband and I hired David Traut , owner of T-Square to renovate our master bathroom .
We interviewed several companies and chose David , due to his experience and design vision.

David's craftsmanship was evident in our custom made vanity cabinets. He also designed our bath with design elements to blend with the rest of our home!

I have a lot of allergies and David and his crew were very careful to keep the dust and chemicals to a minimum! Also his crew showed up everyday promptly at 9:00, as promised.
Our renovation area was swept clean at the end of every work day.

We love our new bath and couldn't be happier with our decision!

T-Square recently completed the renovation of the master bathroom in my house.  The result is beautiful, functional and safe.  The reason for the renovation was to make it possible for me to stay in this house as I aged.  The center piece of the new bathroom is the spacious shower.  It has grab bars all around, a seat, and both a hand held and conventional shower heads.  The tiling goes to the ceiling making it easy to keep clean and adding to the spacious feel of the shower and the room.  

The tiling throughout the room is exquisite in it's over all appearance and detail. Both the floor tile and the shower pan are slip resistant for safety. Even the baseboards and the window aprons are made of the same tile.

All of the fixtures are made to be easily accessible if at some point I should need to use a wheel chair.  The countertops and windowsills are made of the same material again lending to the spacious feel of the room.  And the cabinets are custom made of real wood.  

I enjoyed working with T-Square.  David is an expert at what he does.  He was easy to work with, and efficient at managing the subcontractors who came in.  T-Square kept the rest of the house remarkably clean considering the dust that was involved.  They were efficient and on time.  I highly recommend T-Square to anyone who is looking for a renovation to make a bathroom safe and accessible for aging.

To whom it may concern: I have known Dave Traut for over 25 years, having worked as a colleague on a project site and having solicited his contract services for other contract work.  I have also developed a very close friendship with Dave.   Unfortunately in this business world, there are not many people that you can trust will do what they promise.  Fortunately, Dave is not one of them.  His word is his bond and his craftsmanship is second to none.  Dave delivers product of the highest quality, on time and in budget.  I would highly recommend Dave for any project, regardless of size.  He has the amazing ability to be both a teacher and a leader; he is creative in finding ways to solve situations and his talents/skills go well beyond the world of construction.  Should anyone be interested in discussing his capabilities, feel free to contact me.

Dear Dave,

Thank you so much for the excellent job you did with our bathroom remodel.  It is absolutely gorgeous and we are so happy with the results.

Please use this as a letter of recommendation.

Dave is professional and knowledgeable about his work.  He is a true craftsman and his passion for his craft is evident in the finished project.  His able assistant Arlie did an excellent job as well.

They were at our home on time, every day and always kept the job site clean.  Dave was very helpful and accommodating in the planning stage.  He listened to our needs and offered suggestions that fit with in our budget. He has great ideas and his design was so much better than what we had initially come up with ourselves. 

The quality of his work is very impressive. He does not take any shortcuts and it shows in all the details. Our custom cabinets are very solid and the wood and finish is perfect.  

It's so nice to have something made exactly for the way you use it.  I have already recommended Dave to several friends as well as clients of mine in Real Estate.

We definitely plan on calling Dave in the future for our next project.

 All the best to you.

Your fans,

Lynn & Brian Mitchell

T Square Company gutted and completely remodeled a bathroom with subway tile shower, double sinks, installed cabinets, 

granite counter top, porcelain floor-everything! New wood and glass cabinet doors were made for the den. 

The project turned out beautifully and exactly as planned.

The owner, Dave Traut, is honest, knowledgeable and easy to work with. His contract was straightforward and detailed

with no deceptive legal phrases. He and Arlie, his foreman, have worked together for decades. The crew worked unobtrusively and swiftly. 

T-Square makes beautiful cabinets, does interesting tile work, can build anything and is a top notch contractor. 

We unequivocally recommend Dave Traut and will use T Square again.

To Whom it may concern:

We recently completed a home addition using T-Square Company. We doubled the footprint of our home by adding a very large master suite, a second garage, and workshop.  

First and foremost, I would like to state that working with Dave, his crew, and the talented professionals he employed was the best experience we could have hoped for.  We have worked with several other contractors in Austin in the past and none compares to the professionalism, the quality of work, the attention to detail, the persistence in ensuring we were completely satisfied, the honesty, and the craftsmanship he and his team bestowed upon us. As with any home renovation/addition, we had people coming and going in and out of our home for a considerable amount of time but Dave and staff ensured that they were as unobtrusive and respectful of our property and neighbors as one could hope for.  We always felt safe and secure knowing that he was handling the work for us.  Dave unlike most contractors was at the job site 100% of the time and did not leave us hanging with half completed work for days or weeks on end. I personally witnessed Dave doing and redoing things until he was satisfied.  Due to his very high standards and attention to detail, this a testament to his professionalism and dedication.  Dave is a stand up guy and upon completing this work I am very proud to tell people who completed the work.  T-Square Company will always be welcome at our home, and I feel obligated to tell my friends they can depend on him to complete their construction work as well.

The end result of Dave’s work at my home is nothing short of exceptional.  I would highly recommend T-Square for your residential home construction, renovation, home addition, custom cabinetry, and probably any other type of home remodel or building you need or desire.  You are welcome to call me for a character or professional reference at any time.

My wife and I have some additional home improvement needs and will be calling Dave at T-Square when we are ready to begin.

This note was not solicited by Dave but I hope that he will post it on his website for his future potential customers to see.

It has been my pleasure to work with the T Square Company for many years.  I lease over 500,000 square feet of office space and retail space in Austin and have a need to build out the spaces or remodel the spaces periodically.

Dave Traut and his Company have done numerous jobs for me in the past and I find them very cooperative and conscientious about the jobs.  They have worked with my Tenants and my Architects in the design aspect of the spaces along with a lot of “hand holding” of the Tenants during the construction phase.  He always was good at solving any problems in the field with as little involvement from me as possible.  I greatly appreciate that characteristic of Dave Traut and his Company.

His quality of construction was without reproach.  We never had call backs for poor craftsmanship on any of the jobs he completed.  He always was cognizant of the time line and would brief all parties if there were any delays in materials being delivered or the inspectors not showing up.

I would highly recommend T Square for any jobs you might consider, if that job involved Commercial Real Estate.  If you ever need a reference feel free to give me a call.

To Whom It May Concern:


I began working with Dave Traut and T-Square Company in 1995.  Dave’s knowledge and experience with the specifications in the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Texas Accessibility Standards are a great value-added benefit to public projects.  T-Square Company is capable of doing all kinds of construction and repairs from simple paint jobs to full-scale renovations and new building construction.

To whom it may concern:

T-Square remodeled our house in the Dripping Springs area.  Dave did a great job in designing and implementing the remodel.  His plan maximized the usefulness of the square-footage.  The total redesign of the kitchen and master bath took these rooms  from the 1970s to the 21st century. His wood-work is exceptional.  He designed and constructed a built-in bookcase and a desk-bookcase that changed ordinary rooms into show pieces.  When we had trouble with the foundation contractor, Dave stood by us, and helped get the foundation people to rectify their mistakes.






I recently had my house remodeled to accommodate my aging dad who needs special care due to his age. First of all, Dave was very knowledgeable about my current needs and educated me about probable future needs, thus saving me future costs and headaches by planning ahead. His expertise and care saved me thousands of dollars and his crews professionalism could not have been better. Their attention to detail was impeccable and we could not be happier. It is so refreshing to find and deal with a contractor who communicates and understands our needs as a customer. Thank you so much for delivering what you said you would deliver.

Thanks so much Dave,

Chris N.



When my wife and I decided to make home improvements, we researched the available contractors and were very deliberate and specific in our selection process.


David Traut's T-Square Contractor Service was high on the list based on the excellent work his group had done in our immediate neighborhood, including a very successful major addition to our neighbors directly across the street.  Upon interviewing David Traut and discussing our wants, we became very comfortable with T-Square's ability to understand and complete our project both within budget and to total satisfaction.


Our project involved creation of a large driveway/turnaround, long and impressive stone walk ways. Solutions to  existing drainage problems, a large wooden deck, and a 25' wooden fence to match the fencing already in place, a stone mailbox to match our house.


The final results are not only attractive, but satisfy the goals we had set out with David and T-Square in the beginning. If you are contemplating  home improvement of any size or scope, it would be to your advantage to contact T-Square and enjoy the planning and implementing of your plans.  T-Square will make it happen!
