    We are currently using Oakmark Construction to add an addition and screened porch to our home. We have been THRILLED with their work, and their estimate was the lowest. They have done work on several homes in Broadlands. We are directly across from Hillside Elementary if you want to see their work.

    We used Kenny Williams for our screened porch/deck two years ago. We had a warranty written into the contract and after the work was completed we had a VERY hard time contacting them to fix some issues. They came once last year and I've tried contacting them several times (meaning phone calls a couple times per week for several weeks) this year for another issue. They stood me up and never returned phone calls. Their work was great, but their customer service sucks.

    We just finished our basement last year and used Ronald Jimenez for drywall, insulation and painting, and used Ronay Customs for the flooring and finishing work (we had friends do the framing, wiring, and plumbing). We were happy with both!

    Gerry Axelson from Genreation Builders did some deck work for us. He is an excellent contractor - very responsive. (540) 336-0797

    With regards to Shantz' home services. I called him based on the recommendation from this forum. He came by, looked at the job and said he would call me back with an estimate. He failed to do so.

    I would be interested in looking at your basement. I am Steve Hayes, resident of Ashburn and Senior Project Manager at Hafer Construction, Inc. We specialize in kitchens, bathrooms, and basements. 2 years ago, we did almost $1m in basements alone. Please give me a call. Perhaps I can help.

    Hi, we are looking to finish our basement as well. I'll contact Blue Moon and MOSS but does anyone have other recommendations? We are looking for a basic work, nothing fancy : - )

    Thanks in advance.

    Happy new year!
