    Robertson Electric
    Unreliable, unprofessional. Would not do business with this company again. Scheduled service - install an A/C outlet and two thermostats. Scheduler made appointment two weeks out. On the day before the scheduled appointment, they called. They can't install the outlet tomorrow and will only provide estimate. They can't install thermostats; they need more time. Please call to reschedule. During the two weeks between scheduled and date of appointment, no-one bothered to look at the scheduled services and determine whether the work could be done on the date and in the time allotted. I get the call to reschedule the day before the appointment. To me, this sounds like untrained schedulers and not enough competition in a small market to move this company to fix the problem and do it right. If they're this unreliable at keeping appointments, I can't rely on them to do electric work properly.

    Troy-Bilt Construction
    I was the general contractor for a home I remodeled in Arizona and have assisted in various construction projects. I have decent knowledge of construction and have dealt with many contractors over the years. Troy and Mark were pleasant to work with, and obviously take pride in their work. Much of the work was completed by their 2-man team (i.e. framing, trim work, flooring, cabinet/countertop installation, and painting). I was impressed with the quality of their work and attention to detail. Troy's subcontractors were equally skilled. Also, I appreciated and incorporated Troy's suggested modifications to the original plan. In summary, I would highly recommend Troy-Bilt Construction, and I will be hiring them again for future projects!

    Just Better Home Services
    Called to schedule an appointment on a Monday, they showed up the next day for an estimate, and replaced my old AC unit with a new one on Friday. Did not try to upsell, recommended a quality brand, and prepared two separate receipts so I could send one to Albemarle County for a $100 rebate on a programmable thermostat. Friendly crew, left no mess, and made sure I understood how to program the new thermostat and use the app on the phone to monitor/manage when away.

    TOP Quality Home Improvements LLC
    Great. Tom was easy to work with, prompt and professional. He provided suggestions that improved the final product but understood where I wanted to cut corners to save money. The final product is exactly what I hoped it would be. I will definitely be using Top Quality Home Improvements again!

    KB Contractors
    I should have hired a lawyer from day one. We went to court where our claim was mediated by the judge. We took Mr. Bodenstein to the Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulations. Mr. Bodenstein was fined $4500 dollars and his license was revoked until he went through classes on the regulations and successfully passed them. Mr. Bodenstein at first resisted Va DPOR and then pled guilty to all of the charges. The Va Department of Professional and Occupational Regulations discovered that none of Mr. Bodenstein's subcontractors were licensed. Those subcontractors were: electricity, plumbing, propane, HVAC and concrete foundation. We paid $123,000 to Mr. Bodenstein, lost $40,000, largely in legal fees, in the court settlement and had to spend an additional large sum to repair and replace shoddy work and omitted work. Mr. Bodenstein used a workman who was released daily from the local Joint Security Complex and Mr. Bodenstein failed to live up to the contract he signed with the prison. Not knowing the worker was a prisoner who was locked up for theft, we gave him access to the property. Mr. Bodenstein told us this worker was a "master electrician" and he was not. Yet that workman divided the power coming to the house, installed a replacement electric box for the house and the cottage, installed all electrical wiring and a new electric panel for the cottage. He also installed propane piping which was incorrect and failed to pass the occupancy inspection and had to be replaced at considerable cost. He did major plumbing work. Mr. Bodenstein began work before obtaining a building permit and what was supposed to be a three month job extended from early June until he was fired a week before Christmas. Mr. Bodenstein has an excuse for everything and tells elaborate tales to explain away his problems. However, when the Virginia Board of Contractors at VaDPOR investigated him for a full year, all of his stories melted away in front of them. Mr. Bodenstein was often away for weeks at a time. His "supervision" was cursory. We had pipes freeze because areas were not insulated or insulated improperly. The new roofing Mr. Bodenstein had installed did not include the necessary replacement ridge vent system, The plumbing hook-ups for the dishwasher and kitchen sink leaked and flooded the floors. Even after all of this, we are very satisfied with our cottage. It took extra money and other professionals to make it right, but we are delighted. The work Mr. Bodenstein had done was not all bad. In fact, some of it was exceptional. But corners were cut and he got testier and testier. We live on the site and were always available for any sort of consultation. Our "contract" was split into individual contracts in what VaDPOR determined was a way for Mr. Bodenstein to get around his $119,999.99 license ceiling. We learned a lot during all of this. Eventually, Mr. Bodenstein sent us a "change order" which was invalid. Relationships deteriorated and he was fired. Hire that lawyer if you get involved with Mr. Bodenstein. And contact VaDPOR in order to understand how to deal with a licensed Virginia Contractor. VaDPOR is on your side against contractors who don't follow the regulations. It is not enough to be told that the contractor is insured and bonded. Ask to examine the documents.

    Troy-Bilt Construction
    I've worked with Troy and Mark on two jobs. The first was a smaller job to install railings on my front porch. I could tell right away their workmanship was excellent, and I was impressed with how Troy worked through unexpected obstacles that came up during the process. I was thrilled with the railings - they tied into the existing porch perfectly and looked like they'd always been there! I then hired Troy for a much larger job, involving converting a small bedroom into a bathroom, and converting an existing small bath into a laundry room. Once again, Troy and Mark were great throughout the process. This job took the room all the way down to the studs, and my house is quite old, so a lot of carpentry needed to be done to get the new room to be level and square. They clearly know their craft and are complete professionals! They managed the demolition, framing, installed insulation, drywall, flooring, and doors, and they also coordinated with all the sub-contractors. The site was cleaned up and left safe after each day, which I appreciated especially as the job got messy. Again, Troy worked through the inevitable unexpected hurdles and always came up with good solutions. Troy was also flexible in working with me, as I wanted to do most of the finish work myself, and we kept in close communication throughout the 6 weeks of work. The job came in on-time and on-budget, and I absolutely love my new spaces! It's great to have confidence and security knowing that everything is so well-built. On a personal note, I also really appreciated that, as a woman living alone, I never felt uncomfortable with Troy and Mark (and their sub-contractors) in my home, and could always trust them to be respectful of me and my space. I definitely recommend Troy-Bilt for anyone's remodeling job!

    DOUGLAS F SEAL & SONS GENERAL CONTRACTING
    After speaking with several contractors, plumbers and electricians in Charlottesville we chose Doug Seal and Sons for the multiple repairs we needed done in our new home......and we couldn't be happier with our selection! EVERTYHING about Doug Sr., Brian, and Doug Jr. is professional, genuine and honest. Their solid work ethic is rarely found, and they were punctual, thorough, detail oriented and cleaned up our home daily at the end of their work. We had multiple disasters occurring in our home, and they worked together with us to formulate a detailed plan for all of the work and executed it flawlessly and on schedule. The repairs included plumbing, electrical work, drywall, painting, carpentry, and installation of new hardwood flooring. They have restored peace of mind to us and allowed us to enjoy our new home once again. We would recommend them without hesitation and have already discussed additional work with them for the future. We can't imagine calling anyone else to entrust with the care/repair of our home.

    Never Dark Whole House Generators LLC
    Although the wait from purchase to install was four months, it was well worth it. Ours was a fairly complex install, and the team that did the work was excellent: professional, friendly, and attentive to details. What we got with Never Dark was top-notch electricians who specialize in generators, and the result was confidence-inspiring, making us feel very good about what is a substantial investment.

    Boss Design Center
    We were very pleased with the outstanding work of Sean and Talha and the rest of the staff from Boss Design. We hired Sean to redesign the interior of our entire home. He and Talha put together a plan that we absolutely loved. The furniture they suggested looks great and is very functional. Our primary purpose was to increase seating in our home and to spruce up the look. They were able to accomplish this. In fact, we had them order outdoor furniture as well. We have been so pleased. They were wonderful to work with. The customer service was outstanding. They are very creative, but found opportunities to combine many of the things we already owned into the redesign. They asked about our interests and found ways to mesh our passions into their schemes. We would definitely recommend Boss Design for someone looking for interior design of their home.
