John did most of our kitchen remodeling work for us. This was the first time we have done a project like this so we were sort of feeling our way. I would hire John again, though his helper, Jamie, was not as good. I think the qulity of work was generally good, but I wasn't there to watch most of it. Some smaller details looked like they could have been handled better, such as flatness/evenness of the floor, placement of electrical boxes, some of the edges where the new floor met the old floor or HVAC vents. John was always happy to change something for us, but of course it would cost more to make the change. When they initially installed the cabinets one section was about 3/4 of an inch misalligned with the existing wall. Apparently they didn't see anything wrong with that and went ahead and installed the cabinets. When I saw the result I thought we needed to fix it, which John did, but he charged us another $225 to do it. There are probably always unforeseen circumstances that arrise during construction, especially in remodeling, and sometimes John would figure out a good solution (one that we liked), but other times it would be not such a good solution and we might have wanted it done differently. So more communication at those times would have been nice. Overall we are pleased with the results. The new kitchen looks pretty good, though we're still only about 95% completed. We are still waiting for a few ordered items to arrive and John will be back to finish things off. John was good at telling us when he would be there and when he wouldn't. The project has gone on a little longer than we had hoped, about 8 weeks, but things kept on schedule pretty well and there were a few unexpected extras like replacing part of the ceiling and removing multiple old floors. It was pretty easy to work with John and he seems trustworthy. I think we are a bit overbudget, but we did add in some extra painting to the job. Knowing what I now know, I think the project would go more smoothly if we had to do it again. I think John also learned some things during this project. For example, I don't hink he had installed hardwood flooring before. I bet he would also be better at that if he had to do it again. John gets things done, but sometimes he should think ahead a few more steps and try to figure out if he's doing things the best way.
Gerson did an exceptional job fixing our tile. He made good recommendations that we hadn't even thought of. He cleaned up after he the job was completed. He went the extra mile and still charged the same quoted price.
Working with Nick May was very easy from start to finish. He came out on time for the inspection of our roof and gutters, gave a fair quote very quickly, and spent the next couple of days answering all of our questions. We signed the contract and Nick and his crew were able to start the next day! They replaced the entire roof that was in desperate need, took off the roof of a back porch, removed an old chimney no longer in use (which turned out to be complete concrete), and replaced gutters. He stayed in touch the whole process and let us know what was going on with the project. The end result was on time exactly the way they thought it would go and on budget. They even patched two small sections of stucco on the exterior near the new roofing so it would be all sealed up! I will definitely consider Charlottesville Roofing and Siding for future projects.
I hired Shane to remove 2 load bearing walls and replace them with headers, as well as to frame up and install two french doors. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Shane and his work. He is extremely responsive to the desires of his clients and cares more about giving them exactly what they want than most contractors. He is knowledgeable, timely, and prompt. He offers solutions that are extremely budget friendly, but still well-constructed. I know I probably sound like a shill or something but I seriously can't say enough good things about him. I've hired a lot of contractors, but Shane is now my go-to guy. A+

Removing a swimming pool is a tough job but not with Joshua. He is one of the trusted swimming pool contractors who also handle painting, cleaning and other handyman work.
