    I sent my review on Mr. Stock last week. He did an outstanding job and we are enjoying the landscaped backyard. I will hire him again.

    The rainy weather delayed the time of our initial scheduled appointment. We decided to wait, and we are so glad we did. Mr. Stock made suggestions for the area and we trusted his professional and honest advice. We are enjoying a beautifully landscaped backyard, and we will hire him again

    Revitalized Staircase
    David replaced our pine treads on our staircase with oak. He stained and polyurethaned them to match our new wood floors. I chose David among the other contractors because he was the most responsive to my questions and because he gave me options to achieve the look I wanted within my budget. He was gave me reasonable dates to complete the work and arrived everyday when he said he would. He is definitely someone I would recommend.

    "A true professional"
    The power for one section of our first floor was out. Dave troubleshooted and after a quick diagnostic determined wires had loosened over time for one of the outlets. He was very knowledgeable, adept, and quick. All is well and wouldn't hesitate to refer or use him again if ever there was a need.

    David checked all my electrical outlets, located the cause of why a lot of my outlets sometimes didn't work. He told me that all the bathrooms in my home were on the same circuit! He also checked my electrical panel and assured me that I did not need an upgrade. He definitely knows his stuff. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

    I live in AZ and the project to be completed was in VA. It was very scary to hire someone and trust them when you live across the country. Not only did Daves Contracting helped make it seamless and walked me through every step of the way by sending me before and after picture and contacting me through text but they also did a beautiful job. He was honest and a great price for the huge patio repair we needed done. I would hire him again.

    David has been nothing short of amazing to work with. From his timely responses to his deep knowledge to his true dedication and professionalism, David has proven himself one off the best artisans we had ever had a pleasure of working with. And of course, his prices left nothing to be desired either. He had more or less built our bridge from scratch, and I know, once we are ready to tackle the next big project, he will most certainly be our go to guy.

    Dave came to my home the same day and did what we thought was a small project, assembling a file cabinet. There was something wrong with the hardware and Dave was determined to fix it and he did. Dave gave me a quote and wanted to honor it though he went over the time. I gave him a generous tip. I will definitely use him again and recommend him highly.

    Dave's Contracting came to our commercial site to replace outdoor light fixtures, and we were very pleased with their service. Dave was personable, very easy to communicate with, and very prompt with his availability and with our requested estimates. If we ever have any electrical issues in the future, we will definitely be going through Dave's Contracting. If you're looking for a contractor, Dave's Contracting is a smart choice.
