“Jerry was very easy to work with as he appreciated the skill the architects brought to the table. I appreciated his attention to detail during the very large, multi-year, custom, single family project. In addition to his own work overseeing construction, the myriad subs, material orders, and etc., he listened and worked with us on numerous details and changes. He was always very jovial yet took his role very seriously. I look forward to the next chance to work with him.”

He generously pulls from years of experience and his continued education in green building techniques, to offer as many viable and interesting possibilities as possible to the homeowner. Besides this obvious dedication and know how, Jerry is a pleasure to work with, always calm and good natured. He keeps the job moving with a dose of humor and the love of building.

I appreciate the fine work you and your team provided in renovating our deck and completing the repairs and upgrades you provided for our home.
You might recall I started with a contractor supplied by the "big-box home improvement" store to renovate our large deck. After ordering the material and paying for 50% of the planned work, the big-box store home office reviewed the scope of the deck renovations and decided they could not take on such a large project and unilaterally decided to cancel my contract!
It was under these circumstances that you were recommended to me. Your team did a fabulous job removing the old deck surface, which covers a large area given that it runs the width of the house in the back and the length of the house on the south side. Your attention to detail on helping me pick the right deck material to cover the span of the supports and providing extra bracing at the railing post mounting points avoided problems of which I was otherwise unaware! We enjoy the new deck daily.
The installation of replacement siding boards on the old cedar siding, the installation of the two new double pane entry doors, the replacement of the screen door damaged by high winds and the final coats of new paint have really revitalized and beautified our custom house.
I'd be happy to recommend you and Craftsman Construction to potential customers. Sincerely”
- Kevin Rose, Delaphane, VA
“Dear Jerry & Perry,
I want to thank you both for the professional work you accomplished for us here. It was a real pleasure dealing with you and your workers from start of design, construction phase and through clean-up at the end of the projects. Thank you again! We look forward to working with you on our next project.”

“Throughout the building of the new facility at Paradise Springs, Craftsman Construction was a pleasure to work with. With such a unique project and building, it took a company that really knew how to piece together so many aspects of our needs to deliver a final product that is both a showpiece and a functional facility for producing our product. With a talented team, no request was too much for them to handle. The project was delivered on time and within budget. Furthermore, the follow up response of the owners in wanting to make sure everything functioned as it was supposed to was phenomenal. Craftsman Construction takes great pride in their work and it showed with our project. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a quality build. In a time where many contractors are trying to maximize profit, even if it means compromising quality, Craftsman Construction delivers and will not steer you wrong. Today, we host thousands of guests a month whom enjoy both the quality surroundings and the wine which was produced all in our new facility.”
- Kirk Wiles, CEO, Paradise Springs Winery
“It was my pleasure to hire Craftsman Construction for structural modifications and repairs to my 250 year old Northern Virginia home in preparation for a metal roof installation. The house had an old, poorly installed cedar shake roof over several additions of varying quality, both factors contributing to significant deterioration of soffit and fascia sections all around the house. Additionally, I wanted two large ill-fitting dormers removed that were not part of the original roof before the new standing seam metal roof was installed.
The Craftsman Team took time to understand and adopt my vision and gain an appreciation for the old structure. Their proposal was prompt, complete, and accurately characterized the phased plans we discussed.
I was impressed with how the team attacked the work in their site preparation phase by first staging tools and equipment that would be needed. The work then began as scheduled with tremendous progress being made each day, despite the difficult to reach, awkward, high locations of the problem areas. The dormers were removed flawlessly, old timbers and windows preserved, and the roof patched and structurally reinforced. Daily, Perry would take time to discuss the progress, challenges/discoveries, and next objectives. The site was kept meticulously clean, with all tools and materials secured at the end of each day. The new carpentry was expertly painted, a new window installed, and spray foam insulation applied to the repaired attic spaces. The house was now ready for a new roof and already looked better than it had in many years.
I also asked Jerry and Perry to provide proposals for several other exterior and interior renovation projects and am looking forward to seeing more of their craftsmanship applied to this old house. I very highly recommend Craftsman Construction for any residential construction project – it will turn out better than you can imagine!

"Craftsman Construction put new cedar siding on the house as well as remodeled the kitchen and three bathrooms. They also painted the house inside and out and added a new deck on the rear of the house as well as a new porch on the front and a new driveway. We are very pleased with the work and will definitely recommend them to anyone looking for work to be done to their home.”
