Recent Review: In early 2014, I moved to Bedford county from Maryland and purchased an older house. I needed some major work done and was unfamiliar with any contractors in the area. I consulted the yellow pages and found Dollman Construction. I called them to evaluate the project and requested an estimate. Mr. Dollman met with me at the job site and we reviewed my needs. I purchased a 36x30 steel building in February, but needed a contractor to erect the building. Not only was the building erection needed, but this job required foundation drawings, removal of several large trees, excavation of the site, building approval and permit by the county for the design of the building and accompanying lot, as well as insulation and electrical work which were not originally included in the plans. Mr. Dollman's company was able to work with my needs as changes in the plans indicated. All work was completed by Dollman Construction, from the foundation for the building to completing the parking lot outside the garage. The building was quickly and professionally erected, with concrete pads and extra large garage doors. The house we purchased had significant water damage by a door off the side of the house. Construction of a new porch area and repair of the damage was next. The company built a new porch and now this is my favorite entrance and exit into the house. The carpenters made improvements to the area so no new water damage would occur in the future. The roof was twenty years old, and needed to be replaced. Mr. Dollman's company was fast and efficient replacing the roof. A steep A-frame house with skylights over a sunroom and edges which overlooked a steep incline with nowhere to deposit the old shingles presented a significant challenge to the roofers. The roofers were able to finish the job in ONE day, including clean up of the area. Great care was take to avoid damage from the workers to any structures or landscaping plants. The onsite supervisor of the work crews is knowledgeable and always available for questions and concerns. The cost of this work was around ninety thousand dollars, but the work is professional and the employees are polite and conscientious. I am quite pleased with Dollman Construction and have already spoken to Mr. Dollman regarding other projects I need to complete. I could not be happier with the work completed and highly recommend Dollman Construction to anyone looking for a contractor. On another note, the point of contact in the office is Crystal. She is very polite, friendly and dependable. A rare gem. Kudos to Dollman Construction.

Recent Review: Highest praise for DF Building! Not only is their work meticulous and beautiful, but I found them to be friendly, neat, honest, and fairly priced. After interviewing several contractors for our two story brick addition, we hired DF Building. We were so pleased with their work, we hired them for several other major remodels without considering other contractors. Their work is consistently on point. We have recommended DF Building to family and friends who have gone on to hire them with the same positive results. If we have further need for contractors, DF Building is the only one we will consider. We are very happy customers! A+++++++
Chip visited our home a number of times to measure, photograph, inspect the proposed sunroom addition area on an existing deck. He produced a professional drawing full of detail that I could hand to a builder and actually get a decent quote right from the drawing. I am very pleased with the finished drawings and highly recommend Conway Design-Build for any home construction or remodelling plans you have. He has built many fine homes but I cannot comment on the build aspect of his business at this time.

We intended for the carport to be a simple structure, but due to the side we needed a foundation. Well, it sort of grew from there. While the carport was more involved than I had anticipated, the final product is very nice and a much welcome addition. It blends well with the house, does not look like a rough shed, yet is very functional.

They arrived on time and everyone of the crew had their own job to do . They worked like a "Well Oiled Clock". They did a great job. Great teamwork ! They were finished in about 2 hours.

I just have recently finished a contract with this company to build a home. The following is my opinion of our project, and it is a process I wouldn’t repeat. First our foundation was placed pointing to a different part of the lot then we desired. The drywall finishing is cracking and unlevel while the baseboards were not miter cut and had large gaps at the walls. In the kitchen the window and cabinets were not level. The wrong carpet color was installed, and the doors were stained a substantially different color than the trim. We had our house fail inspections over 12 times as listed by zoning and planning. There were long periods of time when no work was being done despite good weather. Throughout the process, our zoning and planning office served as a great resource for help including telling us about DPOR. On DPOR’s site there are complaints against David James Homes (also known as Heckman Homes, Inc.). We made sure as much as possible was communicated through emails. We made as many visits to the house to check on the work being done and did research as much as possible. If I had this to do again, I would save the two years plus of aggravation on this project and just buy a home. To say the least, I wasn’t happy with them. Worst Experience I have ever had, they even tried to double bill us at least twice. Check the BBB and DPOR for more information.

I would recommend Roger White to anyone. After asking many people who they would recommend, Roger White's name came up the most often. We interviewed 5 different builders and selected Roger. We never regretted that decision. Roger has been in the business for long enough to know excellent subcontractors. Whenever we had any questions, we had a great deal of trust in whatever Roger said. We worked out a creative price structure that was a win-win for Roger and us. He was flexible. The town of Blacksburg is difficult to build in because of the many stringent building standards, but Roger took them in stride. We were fortunate to have a mild winter, so progress went realtively quick. It took about 7-8 months from start to finish. I don't know if everyone could expect that, but we were fortunate.

Very professional contractor and work. I have used this contractor before and I have always been very satisfied. I plan to use them again in the future to add a bathroom in my house.

When I first went there they did not have the size that I wanted but they ordered the size I told them that I needed. They even delivered it and set it up for me.

Mr. Smith was very professional, honest, and punctual. He wanted to perform the job but advised that due to the distance of the building site to his normal area of business he did not feel he could be competitive with my project. Based on my conversations with this builder I sensed that he was a very knowledgeable and skilled builder. I felt that he took great pride in his work. I was disappointed that he would not be involved in my building project.
