Recent Review: Once we contacted CertaPro, Mr. Bill Canavan called us to schedule an appointment for an estimate.  When he arrived, he was extremely pleasant and very professional.  He went over all the work that was to be done and gave us a written estimate on the same visit within a few minutes.  The painters arrived on the scheduled date with Mr. Canavan and went over the work areas with us.  The work was done very neatly and on time (two days) and they even came back to go over a few additional areas!  We will be calling CertaPro again very soon to complete the rest of our painting projects.  We were very pleased.

Recent Review: BNW exceeded our expectations. Once construction began in late February, the job was finished within six weeks! Their craftsmanship is excellent; their responsiveness to questions/changes, etc. was quick, and the completed project is absolutely beautiful. They also replaced our old sliding glass door with a beautiful maintenance-free one. I would definitely use them again.

Recent Review: I hired Castlewood Construction LLC to perform repairs and renovations to a property for resale in Gordonsville, VA. The estimate Chris Gilley (owner) gave me was fair and detailed, and while he wasn't the lowest quote, he was the most knowledgeable and I felt comfortable enough to really get all my questions and concerns covered. He even pointed out some potential problems we could run into, which we handled, whereas the other contractors I spoke with never mentioned them.  And while it wasn't on my list, Chris repaired the door to a playhouse in the backyard. Chris was always present and happy to answer any of my questions. His crew was polite and professional, and kept their work areas safe and clean. The work was finished on time and on budget.  Overall it was quite a pleasant experience, and I intend on hiring Castlewood again for future projects. I would highly recommend Castlewood Construction LLC for any building project, they do high-quality work at a reasonable price. I was very satisfied with the process and the final product.

Recent Review: Work was delayed but through no fault of their own - Rain, rain, RAIN! But when the weather cooperated, the crew was here getting the job done and cleaning up after each day’s work. My next door neighbors liked their work so much they hired Custom Construction Group to remove an old addition to their house and replace it with a beautiful deck. We are both very pleased with the work that was done by Debra Belew and her crew!

Recent Review: Jason's crews arrived when they were promised, did what they were contracted to do, and did it very well. I had my home painted (siding, trim and shutters), and having painted professionally myself in the past, I was pleased with the results. Jason's crews removed my guttering prior to painting, and painted the guttering as well. They also repaired two woodpecker holes in my siding. The house isn't the easiest house to paint (2 story house, rear is 3 stories off of the ground, trim is different color than siding) and they were able to finish in the promised time frame. Jason's crew also removed the original deck on my home, and replaced it with a new Trex deck. The new deck was slightly larger than the old one, and they followed my design very well. The new deck has privacy lattice underneath, wrapped posts, and included LED lighting in the stair risers for increased safety. We are very pleased with the results.

Recent Review: The entire project took about a week.  We encountered only one issue which was resolved quickly.  Dennis Kidd told us repeatedly that he overbuilds his products and he is absolutely correct.  Our deck is solid and looks great.  We are very happy with the results.

We needed a new deck built for our house. Tom gave us a fair estimate and did a great job building the deck. We particularly like the way that Tom framed the deck because it gives the deck a nice finished look. We also informed Tom that a hot tub would be delivered so there would need to be extra support. Tom knew exactly what he needed to do and explained exactly where he would provide the additional support for the hot tub and why.

I hired Troy-Bilt-Construction for my deck and custom porch project and I couldn't be more happier and pleased with the final product! Troy is a true perfectionist when it comes to his trade! They showed up everyday and worked very long hours until the project was completed! Troy was very helpful In helping me make some of the design decions that I wasn't sure about and always thinking about keeping the structural support part of the build in mind! I truly love my new deck with a beautiful custom screen porch using the ScreenEze system! The job site was cleaned up at the end of everyday and all trash was taking away at the end of job! I highly recommend anyone looking to have work done on their home to not hesitate calling Troy for their project! He was a true proffessional from start to finish! I already have other future projects in mind that T-B-C will diffently being doing for me! GREAT JOB!! /Thank you so much Troy!

Building errors made by Mr. Palumbo and workers include electrical, structural, plumbing, painting, dry wall, floor,, door, cabinet, and siding errors, Some work was charged for but not done. Included here are only 2 of several reports: an electrician's report who repaired the hazardous electrical errors made by Mr. Palumbo, and a not yet complete report from the deck builders who tore down Mr. Palumbo's deck and are building a new one. 10 of many pictures are provided.

Service outlet installed for units as well as adequate lighting. Nicked wire above panel junctioned and replaced. Fan circuit removed as well as fans to introduce new dehumidifier. A 12 awg feed from panel on a 30 amp double pole breaker-240 volts had been cut at wall and wire nutted back together-now completely eliminated- This was a MAJOR fire hazard. Ran new wire to have outlet towards drive to be GFCI protected.-Was powered by 2 single strand conductors. Wire that was nicked above panel replaced with new wire. KITCHEN SINK WALL: Outlets not GFCI protected: no dedicated circuit. Dishwasher not hooked up properly: No connector used. Wires stripped too far back-copper exposed to metal casing- Fire Hazard-not on a dedicated circuit Disposal under sink had no junction cover installed, no connector for wire, wire nuts not tight-loose connections and did not have its own circuit. Outlets on sink wall and dishwasher, disposal, and towel bar all connected on same circuit-a 15 amp circuit. All 3 need their own circuits-20 amp circuits in kitchen especially KITCHEN STOVE WALL: Outlets, Microwave, Refrigerator and lights all on same circuit. Microwave had no dedicated feed from panel. Refrigerator had no dedicated feed from panel. Outlets did had no dedicated feed from panel and not GFCI protected. CORRECTIONS: Kitchen Sink Wall and Kitchen Stove Wall-ran a new dedicated feed for the outlets and installed GFCI for protection of downstream outlets. Ran new circuits for Dishwasher and Disposal to make dedicated to themselves and installed proper connectors with wiring and proper wire nuts that are tight. Also installed junction cover on disposal. Utilized old circuit for towel bar in bathroom-it now has its own dedicated circuit. Re-worked circuitry to make refrigerator has its own dedicated circuit. Ran a new circuit for microwave to be dedicated to itself. Utilized existing circuit for outlets on range wall and installed GFCI to protect other outlets downstream. BATHROOM: No grounds installed on switches and ventilation fan not ducted to outside of the house. REPAIRS:-Bathroom Switches now properly grounded and fan now ducted to gable vent on rear of house. SUNROOM: FIRE HAZARD- No outlets or switches grounded and NO box extensions used against combatable material tongue and groove walls. 7 of 10 outlets had loose connections, broke connections or too much copper exposed on current carrying conductors. FIRE HAZARD- Switches in Sun room not grounded-cut-off grounds in select cables, loose connections and one box had nicks in two of current carrying conductors which look shorted out prior to switch install and not properly fixed. One of two conductors almost burnt in half and broke when moved. CORRECTIONS: Sunroom-All outlets disassembled and put back with proper connections, box extensions where needed, grounded appropriately and trimmed outer sheathing on cable where there was too much in select boxes. All sun room switches now grounded properly and wires properly fixed to omit serious Fire Hazard. FAMILY ROOM: Outlet close to wood stove had BX armored cable put into a plastic remodel box with Romex. There was neither a proper ground nor a proper termination point for piece of BX. Outlet furthest from woodstove installed in metal box not rated to incorporate a device as well and not grounded properly. CORRECTIONS: Family Room-The BX in the outlet closest to the wood stove is now properly junctioned in basement with a metal box, properly grounded as a transition to Romex. Remodel box was re-installed to proper termination. The box in the outlet furthest from the woodstove was replaced to proper sizing and re-installed as well as proper terminations for grounding. PORCH AND DECK AREA: Boxes not properly grounded, not properly sealed, proper connectors not used. Exposed wires had numerous nicks, cuts and abrasions and too many wires entered a single entry point of box. Both switch boxes were this way. Outlet beside sliding door on deck had no proper in-use covers nor did outlets under bench area. Outlet beside sliding door not GFCI protected for wet location. CORRECTIONS: Porch and Deck area-Deck now redone to incorporate proper fittings, proper box fill of conductors, Re-sealed as well as properly grounded for devices in a wet location application. Proper covers installed and outlet at sliding door is now GFCI protected. DECK ERRORS: Deck built with seam down middle. Boards should be staggered or meet at a decorative perpendicular board. Electrical had to be rewired for non-waterproof boxes. Toe nailing too low-barely caught any wood. Mr. Palumbo used non-galvanaized nails, which rusted, and poor quality boards. Posts were 2x4s on angle--should have been 4x4 posts. Corners should have been square and supports fastened together. After seating removed, seat supports simply came loose-new deck builders did not need to use a hammer. Boards were not at a 90 degree angle. One carriage bolt used was pointless since joist not properly secured. Boards should have been bolted, not nailed. Better, one solid beam should have been used. Nails used had already rusted. Carriage bolts were only finger-tight--did not need a socket to be loosened. A number of screws too close to the end of the deck boards-boards pulled away from screws. Screw were left holding nothing in these places. Lack of support under center beam. Only 1 support under center existed. New deck builders will put 4 under new deck. No hanger or tie where joists were sistered. Joists were irregularly spaced. Insufficient overlap for outside band which supported side and bench of deck. Joist hangers should have been nailed straight in, not angled. One joist just fell out when other end was released. More irregular spacing and lack of joist tie on two joists. Joists should have been carriage bolted-were not. Joists without securing ties/hangers on each end simply lifted out. Side of deck supported by unsecured 2x4s. Main support post on side of deck near house was loose. Outside boards by house were not held together safely-needed to be a single longer joist. Underdeck support center beam just rested on ground. One post was unsecurely attached to a taller, already loose post. One post was so loose it moved easily when just touched by a foot. Ramp next to deck leading up to house was neither supported by a post nor had any other substantial support.. The deck built by Mr. Palumbo and his workers less than a year ago and costing upwards of $20,000, began to sag and separate after six months. Pieces of wood making up the bench around the deck also began to sag, as did wood on the ramp beside the deck, causing both deck and ramp to become hazardous. Deck builders foiund only 6 footers installed to support the 20 by 22 feet deck--only four with concrete. The amount of concrete used did not meet code and would not have passed inspection. (Mr. Palumbo did not pull permits for any of the work he did- he said it was unnecessary because he knew the code. New deck builders are putting in 13 footers, with concrete plugs (Mr. Palumbo used none) and correct amount of concrete. The last cost spreadsheet provided by Mr. Palumbo charged for the installation of 14 footers-only 6 installed-a clear case of fraud only discoverable by removal of deck. Electrical errors were also only discovered (fortunately!) when using two appliances at the same time in the kitchen tripped a circuit breaker. A licensed electrician discovered the incredible number of fire hazardous errors, including absence of connected ground for entire house. Mr. Palumbo was not a licensed electrician when he did electrical work on the house, a fact he did not share at the time. There is much more to report but not enough space. I would hate for someone else to go through this experience. The price indicated does not include the cost of repairs needed.

Initially we just wanted a new deck. Loved it so much we had them install retractable awnings. Came time for new siding and knew we could trust them for great quality at a fair price, replaced the doors and gutters at the same time. Could not ask for better company that stands behind their work. When we replace the windows we know who to call.

This is a follow-up to my comments dated Feb. 3, 2014 and concerns the PVC pergola.  This follow-up is unrelated to the issue mentioned in the original posting. Within five months of the December completion date, I noticed peeling paint on the pergola, specifically the ends of the stringers and rafters.  I contacted Dennis Kidd and asked him to inspect the pergola at his convenience.  After five months of waiting, Dennis has not yet repaired the pergola. The pergola is marketed exclusively by Trex and is made by Backyard America. Fortunately, Backyard America offers a 25-year warranty for "material defects in workmanship and materials."  My current plan is to contact Backyard America directly to solve the peeling paint issue.

After placing a call, a couple days later the company's owner, Walt, came to the house to take a look and provide an estimate and then completed the job the following week. He arrived on time as agreed, did the work himself and did a very good job on both the house and deck. He had his own equipment and was done in about an hour. He also gave me some good advice on re-staining my deck and getting the grease build up off of my gutters. He is not the cheapest you'll find, however his professionalism and reliability was worth it.
