Recent Review: I purchased the building from their on line store. About 3 weeks later they delivered the building and constructed in on site. The installers knew their job and did all the work in one day. The building looks good and I will use them again for a future carport.
Business Description: Ballard Mensua Architecture, led by Seth Ballard, NCARB, AIA, is a boutique architecture firm with a focus on creating truly custom designs and solutions for our clients. We have very strong vendor and contractor relationships, a result of our detailed understanding of construction. Unlike many architects, who like to design and then hand over control to the builder, Ballard Mensua maintains control of management of the project throughout construction. We have a unique cost-study process that helps to put our clients in control of spending... and results in completion of projects on budget.. almost unheard of in this business. Our designs speak for themselves... see our website at www.ballardmensua.com. Our business philosophy is that all clients should be a reference and we work hard to make sure to see projects through. We also have a unique ability to do very large projects without tearing a house down... we save much of the house and build around it... saving sometimes 10 dumpsters of landfill (truly green). Finally, where many architects bring their large ego and force their designs on clients... Ballard Mensua prides ourselves on tailoring designs to each client, listening to specific needs and working hard to make sure that our designs fit what a client is looking for.

Recent Review: They were great! It all started when bought a cabin off of them, then they build an addiction on to our farm house and put us a new roof on the entire house. About 6 months later we had them build us a 50x50 pole barn. My son also had them put gutters on the home he just bought and they also built him a hug back deck. They are very nice and their work is beyond great! Their prices are worth every dime. The Cabin we bought is to die for! we looked for 3 years for a cabin and when we first seen their style cabins we knew that this was the place. Built to last, not cheap like other companies. Anyway we met in person and Harold the sales guy is beyond nice and custom made a floor plain for our cabin on the spot and made our little dream come true. You can also order one right off the phone and they will deliver straight to your house. Our friend down the road seen ours and ordered his right on his phone and it showed up about 3 weeks later. Just awesome services!! No one does business like this any more. We now have them working on a custom swing set for our grandchildren, and I do believe they deliver nationwide. It only cost us $380 to deliver our cabin, they are a must if you are wanting your job done right.

Recent Review: Kelly Osborn took on this job after I had a failure with another contractor. He was on the job on-time and per schedule and his crews were excellent. He worked with me to help layout many custom interior features of a custom building, which was an industrial steel building converted to a cabin type arrangement. Not an easy job and it required several innovative approaches to the design. His professionalism and responsiveness is what impressed me just as much as the fine custom work that was performed. I would definitely hire him again on another building job.
Recent Review: I contracted with them with the barn, but then, they also had a subcontractor that did the building and everything else. Scheduling was a little problem afterwards. It was a little bit delayed. I think they could have been on-site better to oversee the project.

Initially the sale went very well. Ordered the building on 7-29 with a 3-4 week lead time and crew arrived to setup building on 8-23. Installers only had rebar anchors and not the proper screw in anchors, which are required to keep the carport from blowing away. Since then things have gone downhill badly. Although I clearly ordered a certified building, no documentation was provided to show the local building official. Took 3 days of phone calls to get the engineering drawings sent to town building official. Local building official has done live testing on other carports and found that a 4' spacing on the framing does not meet code requirements, even though the engineering drawings say they do. Building official spoke with A Plus carports engineer, called me back to let me know that the building in fact still does not meet code. Received a call on 8-27 from Tracy saying they would have to replace my carport because it will need to have a different spacing (3'6" with 7 legs instead of 4' with 6 legs). And that's where the wheels fell off... I didn't hear from A Plus again until 9-16 when they called me to ask me to call them because they weren't sure but thought they needed to come out and replace my building. I called back and verified that I was told (by the same person, Tracy) that they were indeed supposed to come and replace my carport. At this point I figured a couple more weeks and everything would be resolved. Nope. I called back on 10-3 to see what the status was and was informed Tracy doesn't handle scheduling in Virginia anymore. I explained to the new person what the status was and that I had been waiting a long time to get this resolved. He promised he would find out and call me back. Never called back. Over the next week I had to call them 4 more times to try and get updates as to the status. I finally did receive 4 call backs on 8-11 and was told they were very close to fixing the problem, but didn't have a plan as to what they were going to do yet. And they wanted to talk to the town building official again. I am also asked if I've paid for the building? What?! Yes I paid for the building IN FULL back on AUGUST 23rd! I called back on 10-12 and 3 times on 10-13 but never got to talk to anyone but the person who answered the phone. I will admit that by this time of being told "we'll call you back" and not receiving calls, added with the fact that 7 weeks has gone by and the issues still aren't resolved... my patience has worn pretty thin. On 10-14 (today) I call back and I ask to speak to the office manager. I explain the situation nicely to her and express my frustration that it has taken so long to resolve the issue. She tells me that she will have to run the repair order past the owner since she must approve all repairs, she will call the owner and call me back in 5 minutes. I wait an hour and call back. I again speak to the office manager and ask why didn't I receive a call? I was told she wasn't able to talk to the owner but would call her on her cell and they would have an answer before the end of the day. Again no callback so I call them at 4:55pm (just before closing) and ask to speak to the owner. The owner is not helpful at all, says they are working with the engineer and they've never installed a 7 leg 21' carport in my town. At this point I've had it and tell the owner to just come get the carport and bring me a check. She says they will decide what they are going to do and I am not to call them again. I say "Excuse me?" and she says and I quote "This conversation is over." and hangs up the phone. So here I sit with a carport that I can't use, 7 1/2 weeks after installation. FULL DISCLOSURE: At no point in ANY conversations with anyone at A Plus Carports did I yell at anyone, nor did I curse anyone, nor did I insult anyone. During the conversation with the owner, yes I was frustrated and when it became obvious she was not interested in customer satisfaction in any way, shape or form. Would I recommend doing business with A Plus Carports? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!

At the request of A Plus Carports I have rewritten my review. They are working to remedy the issues concerning my installation. The following facts remain, for which I have documented proof in the form of physical evidence, video evidence, additional witnesses and phone records. 1) Installers tore up my gravel driveway. 2) Installers subsequently involved in a vehicle accident in front of my house. 3) Multiple sheets of metal on my carport were bent as a result of the vehicle accident. a) A Plus is sending a crew to replace 3 bent sheets 4) 104 Self tapping screws left spread throughout in my gravel driveway. 5) Metal scraps from the building were thrown over the bank next to my garage, some onto my neighbors property. 6) Installers borrowed a ladder and left it against a tree on my neighbors property. 7) Installers borrowed a shovel and took it with them, granted it was likely by accident. a) Stolen property yet to be returned. 8) Trash left behind where the installers truck was parked, including cigarette butts. 9) Multiple phone calls were placed to A-Plus over several weeks time with no return calls. 10) Threatening message was left on my voice mail regarding my Google review. I do believe that Lisa from A Plus is working to remedy the situation and the issues with the installation crew and that my building will be repaired. Please note that I am not asking for, nor do I in any way expect compensation from A Plus for any issues (my time picking up trash, metal scraps, screws, etc). I do however expect an apology from the business owner regarding the troubles I have experienced and especially for the threatening voice message. I will update my review again once the carport is fixed and the stolen property is returned.

The installers were extremely friendly and informative. They are even going to put up a carport for my brother.

My wife and I had a great experience dealing with Richards’ Homes and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for an honest experienced builder that takes great pride in their work. We built a second home on a mountain side in Front Royal so we were not able to visit as often as we would have liked to see the progress being made. But we were always pleased with the craftsmanship and the progress when we visited. The process was smooth with just a few hiccups along the way. Mr. Richard treated my home as if it was his own making sure everything was done correctly. At times, I felt like his trades and subs often went above and beyond and gave me the best service possible. Overall, we are very pleased with the workmanship and the completed product exceeded all of our expectations. Thank you for the beautiful new home, we are very proud of it. It is everything we wanted!

Corey's Construction is absolutely amazing!!! They worked hard to make sure all our dreams for our forever home became a reality. They addressed any issues or concerns we had in a timely and professional manner. This was a new process for me and they took the time to walked me through the process and to make sure I understood what was happening during the entire build. I know I probably asked a lot of stupid questions but they never made me feel that way or like I was bothering them. I would highly recommend me Corey's Construction to anyone looking to build their dream home! I couldn't be happier with the outcome of our forever home! Thank You Corey's Construction for making our dreams come true, you all are truly amazing!

It was very pleasant to work with them. It was obvious that the installers knew what they were doing, and I was extremely impressed with how quickly they laid the posts for the buildings and leveled them. Additionally, the buildings were extremely well-constructed, and they checked with me every step of the way to ensure the buildings were located properly.

R.E. Douglas failed to complete a pole building project for us after taking $16,000 as a down payment. He knocked down a few trees to start the land clearing process and never returned. He never delivered a single stick of materials etc. for the project and we haven't heard from him in well over 6 months. He failed to respond to my request for a refund. Not recommended.

The community manager was knowledgeable and put NO pressure whatsoever on us. The build manager is the nicest most caring guy you could ever hope to meet. He actually built our current home when he worked for a different builder. So far, the experience has been terrific and their home quality seems above and beyond anything in Stafford.

I was told it would be delivered the next day. It took them a week. They just dropped it off. They did not set it up. I was very unhappy. I had to hire someone else to do it. They said that when it dried up they would come back and put it up. I just had someone else do it. I was not pleased.
