was a referral from my insurance company. My insurance company said they were a top rated contractor to handle this type of job. They were able to come within the budget the insurance company allowed. They completed the work in less than 30 days. I was able to pick out the design of my kitchen and bath. My walls looked perfect after construction and overall the job looks amazon. The job was done fantastically, very professional. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Company was the person who

the project and we couldn't be happier with the entire process from beginning to finished product. We loved the "can-do" attitude and his attentiveness to detail and to what we wanted. My husband and I live in a 100 year old house which can be a challenge to work around. We have had some prior work done on the house which

us to be very cautious about who we used since we have had some bad outcomes. We really wanted just your basic 2 level porch with an emphasis on low maintenance since we did not want to have to do much upkeep on it - we just want to enjoy it.
Once the project started,
Richmond Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was in communication with us, was easy to contact, was over once or twice a day to take a look at how things were moving along, and got the job done faster than we anticipated without any trauma or stress! The project came in at the price quote, there were no glitches, and the crew cleaned up everything plus were very professional and pleasant. The end result is exactly what we wanted. The only thing is - we love it so much I wish it were twice the size. I believe that

Company does more of custom home construction and additions than porches but we have highly recommended them to other people who want porches.

They came out and did what they said they would do. We wanted to get ideas on what we could do with our kitchen cabinets and counter top. They proposed a couple ideas, took some pictures and measurements, and left with the assignment of presenting us with three options with an estimate for each. Two months later we received our estimates. In fairness, we were told that business had picked up and that that (among personal things) was the reason our estimated took so long. We understood, but it wasn't what we expected and didn't make us feel like a priority.

I am not sure if due to the
Richmond Home Builders Provider Name Locked
building code or what else, but the quality of our townhouse was just lousy.

was more concerned with their production log and delivering the house on time vs. building a good quality home. When we first moved in, our jaccuzzi was not working, water heater was leaking, microwave door had scratches and indents, floor was creaking everywhere upstairs in the carpeted areas (and thats before the house started to settle). A year later, we had 84 nail pops (the record for our community as
Richmond Home Builders Provider Name Locked
handyman told us), which were only spackled and we had to repaint ceilings and walls ourselves. Walls has cracks in them due to settling and we had to repair ourselves. Hardwood floor started to come off and the
Richmond Home Builders Provider Name Locked
floor man had to come and glue it down. The creaking floor upstairs was "fixed" only to start creaking in different areas again. Fireplace was poorly insulated and was literally leaking cold air like crazy increasing our heating bills. The back door and the back porch construction was poor so the water was collecting underneath. This we found out after living there for three years and after our hardwood floor near the back door started to get the water damaged look. The dishwasher broke after 3 years and GM gave us a $300 credit toward a new appliance (
Richmond Home Builders Provider Name Locked
refused to do anything). Finally, and to add to the list, the air conditioner broke after 3.5 years and resulted in another $600 expense. Going through all this, I will personally never buy

pre-fabricated houses. To me, they are all about the superficial looks and the "wow" factor without the real quality. However, I do know plenty of people who have been satisfied with

We renovated our sunroom to open out to a deck with stairs to an existing paver patio.
Richmond Home Builders Provider Name Locked
did all carpentry work. Trimming 10 windows and making a door opening from an 11th window took just 3 days. He carefully cut the door opening so the entire siding did not have to be replaced. The deck is a thing of beauty. It took another 3 days from start to final approval by the city.

arranged for all permits and city paperwork. I was a little anxious because the deck needed custom trimming and placement to fit into a defined space but his expertise maximized use of the materials. He gave us the largest possible deck for the space and created a stairway to our paver patio that lines up perfectly with the circle in the middle. The job included a rail handle along with lattice and a door under the deck. We had researched various woods, composites, and PVA in advance and he

us to the best product. His crew showed up on time each day of the job and stayed all day. They replaced the windows over the newly trimmed openings promptly to cut down on flies, etc.

is an excellent craftsman and good supervisor to his crew, who all seemed very happy working with him. He had some extra time to do a few projects with the leftover deck materials. His price was fair for all work performed and the job went smoothly. They also did a good job cleaning up when they were finished.

Worst contractor I have ever used. Took 11 months and three different carpenters to convert an existing carport to a garage, which should have been a 2 month job. I had the first carpenter removed from the job as he cut into a live electrical breaker box with a circular saw! After I threw him off the job for being unsafe, they sent him back out as a helper for the second carpenter! I threw him off the job again.

could not understand why I was so upset. Took three tries with major repairs between each inspection to pass the Henrico county building inspector. Thats why it took so long for the job. Charged what I later found out was about double the going rate for the work. The back wall of the garage which was sheetrock and supposedly sealed on the outside developed black mold from water seeping in. I had to have the sheetrock ripped out, a portion of the back wall rebuilt correctly, and the drain system they installed under the deck rebuilt. On top of it all the garage has pooled water on the floor every time it rains since day one.

The work that was done was fair. Strait down the middle for everything. It was not the best and it was not the worst. When I invest money I would like things to be the best and this company does not do that. So that is why I personally would not use this company again.

I was not happy in any way shape or form with anything that was done from the people at
Richmond Home Builders Provider Name Locked
. I am still finding different problems with things all around the home. For instance, just about every single light switch and ceiling fan has needed to be replaced. They actually installed faulty wiring that was not working after very little use. Never in life would I consider hiring them.

I am very happy Bill Maslink came and reviewed the home inspection list that was done on our home in preparation to us selling the house. He gave me a written estimate and we set a time for the work. Part of the estimate was in question because it required pulling off some of the siding to see what might be wrong. The carpenter showed up when promised and an excellent job. He was able to determine exactly needed doing and went to work. His work (/ Sandy the carpenter) was excellent and done in a timely and professional manner. The estimate was spot on and I am very pleased with the results.
