    Troy-Bilt Construction
    Outstanding. Troy was here every day for the entire project, and his work was timely, orderly, and as specified. Troy truly exceeded our expectations in terms of the quality and results of this huge project (~1800 sq ft). We are planning to hire Troy again in the future for other projects we have.

    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!

    Noonan's Handyman & Landscape Design
    Mr. Noonan was exceptionally efficient and conscientious. A perfectionist in every aspect of his work. His work was of absolutely the finest quality. Our home is beautiful. Strongly recommend Joseph Noonan and his assistant Dakota. His estimates were very thorough and we had no surprises. Much appreciated.

    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 Bodenstein was fined $4500 dollars and his license was revoked until he went through classes on the regulations and successfully passed them.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.

    Design Concepts, Inc.
    This company ONLY offers a "time and materials + 10%" contract. You will receive a quote for FAR LESS than you'll ultimately be billed because it's a guarantee the job will be (1) dragged out for many more days than it should normally have taken and (2) there will most likely be other "unknown problems" discovered during the work which will significantly increase the cost. For example, my job was estimated to be about $4,000 but for adding three posts, came to more than $10,000! Also, by law, I was entitled to receive records of the invoices for materials and labor hours but the company refused. Bottom line: NEVER SIGN THIS TYPE OF CONTRACT ALWAYS GET A FIRM PRICE! You've been warned.

    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!

    Handyman Home Services
    Did a superb job of locating a small leak that was damaging plaster in a 1930 house. Discovered it was actually two leaks, came up with creative ways to fix both. Demonstrated great carpentry and plumbing skills. Very considerate, very clean.

    Northbound LLC
    Luke Mazzone and his subcontractors did an excellent job finishing baseboard trim after flood damage to my home. This was part of a flood insurance supplemental claim after black mold and other water damage was found. Luke had a vast catalog of different kinds of baseboard: I never knew so many kinds existed! He and his team worked efficiently and did high quality work. I was very happy with the results. In addition, Luke pointed out the unfinished trim on the front door, which a prior contractor had left undone (after he walked off the job). Luke did a fine job on the finish carpentry of the front door, after months of me looking at those ugly gaps! In addition, they fixed some doorway trim in the front entryway interior. His team did a fine job for a fair price.
