The Client Experience

Carpenter Beach built us a beautiful custom home in the Shenandoah Valley. It was a complex project and they dealt with that complexity very well. I found the team from top to bottom to be skilled, of high integrity, communicative throughout the process, and willing to go the extra mile to achieve our vision and needs. Charlie was always available to discuss issues and responded timely to requests for calls or information needed by others involved in the project. He worked very well with our architect and designer, and took personal initiative to discuss questions or unexpected issues directly with them. This level of collaboration was important for our project and was a key factor in its successful completion. The quality of the workmanship met our high expectations. There were only a few occasions where a subcontractor’s work was an issue (painting comes to mind), and when we brought it their attention, it was rectified without debate and extra billing discussions. We were extremely satisfied with the project when it was completed. The way I think about it is that I would not hesitate to hire them again to build our home.


We had Carpenter Beach finish an 1100+\- sq. ft. space in our basement installing a full bathroom, small wet bar, bedroom, laundry and living space. The project quality exceeded our expectations. Even after the final payment was made, they sent their crews to fix a few minor issues to make the project right. The workers they send are people you feel comfortable having in your home and around your family. They didn’t design our project, but worked with us to change small details on the fly and let us know what would impact the final cost almost immediately. Very flexible, and beyond fair when it comes to money. Their project managers might not always be immediately available to the phone, but were good at getting back to you the same day. I would definitely give them the opportunity to work on future projects I have.


“We truly found a building partner with Carpenter Beach Construction. They not only gave us what we wanted, they also showed us what could be possible with ideas within our budget that we hadn’t even thought of before. They were flexible, extremely hard working, and they got the job done beautifully—within our budget and within an impossible deadline.”  


“Carpenter Beach is always there for me, whatever the lastest building project or household crisis is. Their work is consistently high quality and reasonably priced. They are a pleasure to work with and have in my home. Their eco-friendly approach to projects is also highly admirable.”


“The team at Carpenter Beach is one of the best groups of professionals I have had the opportunity to work with. From new construction, to historic remodeling in some of the most historically significant communities in Northern Virginia, the attention to detail, and adaptive construction methods make them stand out as leaders in their trade. The only reason I give them 2 thumbs up is because I don’t have 3 hands.”


“Carpenter Beach Construction has been incredible to work with on my home. The team has been so thoughtful and helped me through every (and I mean, *every!*) step of the process. They have been so thoughtful about selecting materials that are right for me, from sustainability to cost to design and communicated progress effectively along the way. Charlie has gone above and beyond to make sure I’m comfortable in my surroundings and has double (and sometimes, triple) checked on work to make sure it’s correct. Every vendor they’ve recommended has all been wonderful and of the highest quality. The finished product is so well-constructed and durable that all my friends immediately ask who did my renovation work!”



“I don’t have enough time right now to explain what a wonderful service Carpenter Beach provided to me and my family. If you are fortunate enough to get an opportunity to work with them, jump on it. They are very good people and their quality is second to none. My dad is a builder and takes a lot of pride in his work, and he is the first to admit that these guys are on a whole different level. I consider myself extremely lucky to have worked with them and to own a home built by Carpenter Beach. I will be forever grateful.”


“If you want the job done right the first time you need to look no further. These guys use the best materials and the finished product, whether it be a new home or just some around the house repairs, is always done to your satisfaction. Reputable trustworthy contractor. Pick up the phone and have them out to do the work.”
