I was referred to Advanced Contracting via a co-worker who had them build a deck on their house and finish up some odd jobs after finishing off a basement. I was looking for someone to build a new deck and eventually replace the windows/siding on my house. I called Kyle and Shea and they promptly returned my phone call. A few days after talking to them on the phone and telling them what we were looking for they met me at my house to give me an estimate. The quote was spot on with other contractors. During the construction of the deck Kyle worked with my wife and I as we changed our minds on various items on the deck. He was very flexible during the construction and gave us exactly what we wanted. Chuckie and Carlos were the ones that built the deck. They were absolutely awesome. They explained to me how they were building the deck so I would understand and feel comfortable with my new deck. Their attention to detail remind me of my grandfather when we was building decks and houses. You truly don't see that kind of craftsmanship much these days. Kyle, Shea, Chuckie and Carlos did not make me feel like they were running a business. They made my wife and I feel that our friends were building our deck. When it comes to contractors it comes down to three things: Is their quote in the ball park of what other are offering? Yes Is the craftsmanship/ work quality excellent? Definitely Yes Can you trust them? Resounding YES If you are looking for a contractor please call Advanced Contracting. After you talk to them you know who you will want to do you work.
Kyle and his crew were great. They worked side by side with me through the entire process, and were personable, as well. I told them that I would recommend them should I know of anyone who could use their services. Job well done!
We met with Advance Contracting to discuss our deck needs and immediately we most comfortable with ACI. The other companys who came out seemed not to have a clue on some of the materials and seemed to rush things when I told them I wasn't making a decision right away. They came up with a ridiculous high price. Then told us that if we sign today they knock off another 10% and add this or that for free. Advance Contracting was there to educate us on the products and had great ideas. They also educated us on the decision making process and told us to go out and get 2 or 3 estimates. Than find someone you feel most confortable with then check on there references, insurance and licenses. Well that is what we did and I can say Advance Contracting was the most professional. And as far as the workmanship. I believe we have the best looking deck in the community. Our neighbors love it. If you want a company who will deliver a great product at an reasonable price. Then Advance Contracting is the company. Thanks Chuck and Nate
The workmanship for the job was excellent, and the contractor and subcontractor were very professional. I would hire them again for additional work.
This contractor was on time and in budget. The work crews that we had were very good. We had roof, windows, siding, sofits, gutters, and a new driveway put in. The overall work was above average and Chuck our rep at the company was very approachable and was there for any questions. We would suggest this company to any of our friends. The window and siding guys were fantastic.
Outstanding... work start and finished on-time for a great price.
At first I was skeptical hiring a Virginian contractor, but with such a good rapport, from a friend at work, I went ahead and gave them a shot. From the very beginning, their salesman was extremely helpful in figuring out the best solution for my problem with wanting to have a classy patio and deck, on a budget. I had 2 local contractors just give me an out of this world "ball park" price, and neither seemed to want to take the time to explain to me where I can cut costs; nor did they have any other suggestions that i cared for. But Advance got pretty close to what i had prepared to spend, and from then on, before you knew it, everything was finished within about 9 days. Along with being willing to work with my ideas, the other thing that impressed me the most was with the patio. After it was finished, we had a really big rainstorm for about 3 days, and a little area, about 3 or 4 sq feet of pavers had gotten uneven from my dog diggin at the border; and instead of taking their time, they sent a guy out to fix it for me the next day. Since my projects, they've also done 1 neighbors fence, and finished my other neighbors basement. Both of them thank me every time i see them. So from all of us, thanks advance!
Kyle and Shea were very professional and made sure they understood exactly what my husband and I were looking to achieve with our project. I would highly recommend them to family and friends. Their crew worked hard and were happy to answer any questions we had throughout the project. Thanks!
My wife and I hired Advance Contracting to build a screened porch, deck, and patio with a sitting wall. As the project began we had a scheduled vacation and had a dog sitter coming to our home. The ACI crews were very friendly, courteous, and accommodating that they would break to allow her to take the dogs out in the yard at various times of the work day. Throughout the entire project, Shea kept us informed on the progress and was readily available to answer any questions we had. We would definitely use ACI in the future on all projects based off our experience. I would recommend ACI to anyone who is looking to have projects done since the quality of work was tremendous and with how large the job was they remained on time and within budget.
Kyle made it unbelievably easy for me to replace the deck on a rental unit I own. He scoped things out thoroughly before we met, e-mailed me photos of problems w/the deck, was timely when we met and easy to contact via phone or internet, was considerate of the tenant, took care of getting any needed permits from the County, provided frequent status reports, and did a beautiful job at a great price. I will not hesitate to use his company again, and have already recommended him to friends.
Built a 16 x 26 pressure-treated, one story deck. A+ all the way. Hard working, within estimate, no issues whatsoever in craftmanship.
Kyle and Shea were great: they arrived on time for pre-meetings, gave us helpful advice on the project, and finished on time, on budget and as promised. I'd definitely recommend working with them.
Built a 340 foot dog-eared, shadow-boxed fence with 2 4ft gates and 1 8ft gate. A+ workmanship. Hardworking and within estimate. Provied more than I asked for. Great job - great service. Pleasant to work with.
Advance contracting was a pleasure to work with. The owner was very sensitive and responsive to my needs and requests. He did not try to push me into something that I did not need and was open to my suggestions. In addition, the crew was very professional and performed quality work.
Chuck Choate, the principal of Advance, told us that his best crew was building our deck. They were sloppy and didn't seem to care about craftsmanship. While the deck is apparently structurally sound, and meets code, the nailing and screwing was quick and dirty. Most importantly, the Trex specifications for gaps for expansion and type of screws were not followed. I complained to Chuck that the wrong kind of screws were used. He agreed to come and look and set a time. He never showed up, didn't call, and has not responded to calls and emails. Buyer beware. <b><i>update 2/27/05:</i></b> In response to my critical rating, Advance Contracting wrote, and had posted, a comment that they were working with me to solve the problem. They are not. I had one call that basically said they wouldn't do anything. Their only solution was that I should pay them more to fix their own poor workmanship.
Had a very nice dealing with this contractor. They were very knowledgeable and were able to answer all my questions and concerns. Would definitely deal with them again.
I hired Advance Contracting to do a few small jobs around my house. They got the job done very quickly while maintaining great quality work. I was very pleased with my whole experience in using Advance Contracting. I highly recommend them for any of your home improvement needs.
Excellent work!! Advance Contracting built my deck in less than 3 days, and my fence in just a few hours. Top notch quality...attractive pricing...speedy delivery. I will definitely give them a call for future home improvement projects.
The crew was able to fit us into their schedule with ease after having to wait for a month to receive our HOA's approval. Actually started work a day earlier then stated and completed the fence and deck work in five days; just in time for the Memorial holiday. Would use them again and highly recommend their services. Very pleasant to work with and appreciated that their crew always arrived on time and answered any questions we had.
Chuck with ACI came out to give us a free estimate on finishing our basement along with new windows, siding, roofing, and gutters. Out of all the other contractors we had give us estimates, Chuck with Advance contracting was the most professional and He spent the most time with us to explain each process in so much detail. He made us feel so comfortable and worked with us to keep us in budget. We checked to see if Advance Contracting was properly licensed and insured. We also called several of Chucks references and they where all so pleased with chuck and his team. They even let us come out and inspect there project and couldn't say enough good things about the quality and respect they had for chuck and advance contracting. Advance Contracting took care of everything from permits to design and all the inspections. He told us just to sit back and relax. His crews were amazing in there craftsmanship and they finished ahead of schedule. Advance really took out all the worry's that we hear with other contractors. It must be tough being a contractor especially a good one and to deal with all the different customers expectations. It's hard to please everyone, but we are extremely please with Chuck and Advance Contracting. We will refer them to everyone we know. BUYER BEWARE-THIS IS A GREAT COMPANY
We hired Advance Contracting after getting 4 quotes for our backyard patio. The weren't the lowest bid, however they worked within our timeline, and finished within a week. I definitely recommend Advance, and currently have them under contract to replace our front porch. Ill let you know how that turns out.
Initially, me and my husband hired Advance to construct a 2 car garage. That went extremely fast and smooth, not to mention they saved us nearly 5 thousand dollars, so we decided to finish our basement this summer. Advance took the time to sit with both of us, and explained all of the processes before getting started. We felt so comfortable with them, that we decided to vacation while they went at it. When we returned, to our surprise, everything was finished! It only took them another few days to touch up a few things, but we are very happy with our new movie room. thanks Advance! Next year, we are adding on to our kitchen, and they are already scheduled.
Advance Contracting finished our basement and did a nice job. Very friendly and knowledgeable crews and very easy company to work with. I would use them again.
We had a beautiful deck done by Advance Contracting Inc. made of Evergrain decking along with a Flagstone patio. Everything went as planned but most importantly, They were the only company to work with us to keep this project in our budget. A+ Service
Hiring Advance Contracting was the worst experience we have ever had with contractors. The company represents itself as a large company, yet only has two personnel and no secretary. This made getting in touch with them not only hard but extremely frustrating. Worst of all was their shoddy work, lackadaisical attitude, and complete disregard for the timeline that we had agreed upon. If you want to have a terrible experience with a contractor, Advance Contracting is for you.
Advanced Contracting Inc. was very thorough and completed our deck project quickly and within budget. I highly recommend them.
I had several small jobs and contacted Advance Contracting for perform the work. I had crown molding installed, electrical and audio/visual wiring work for a plasma TV install, replaced rotten wood from a door frame and some minor repairs from a roof leak. The guys that came over were nice and friendly to work with and were flexible in working around my schedule. They completed everything and I think the work came out great and they were in budget (which was cheaper than some of the other contractors).
Advance Contracting remodeled our deck, which included adding a screened enclosure with a shed roof. They also installed crown molding throughout our house. They did an excellent job and were very reasonably priced. We received multiple estimates and Advance Contracting responded with the best overall proposal. Advance also completed this project on time and within budget. Most importantly, Advance Contracting has extremely honest, friendly and responsive management. We were fortunate to work with Shea (who is also an owner of the company) during this experience. Shea was always available whenever I had questions or concerns. He immediately returns phone calls and routinely stopped by the job site to review the status of the project. He ensured that we were satisfied with every phase of this project. We plan to use Advance Contracting for future projects and I would highly recommend this company.
Nate from Advance Contracting came over the same day we called for a Deck and Flagstone patio. He was very Professional and very knowledgable. He showed up on time, He spent 3 hours with us and explained everything in detail what would happen and when. As far as the other contractors who we had scheduled to come over, two of them were late and the third guy never showed up. I expected Advance Contracting to be very pricey because they are a very respectable company. but Nate helped us stay within our budget without sacraficing anything that we wanted. After we signed that same day with Nate, The owner of Advance Contracting called and thanked us for our business and told us that he would be taking care of the production side to make sure everything go's as planned and if we had any questions not to hesitate to give him a call. Well three days later all the material came and the same day chucks crews were out there working hard. I can't believe that they finished a 900 Sq Ft deck and 1000 Sq ft patio in 4 days. and these guys did a superjob. They just contracted with 2 neighbors for similar projects. These guys were on time, on budget, and a first class company. Advance Contracting really made me feel comfortable and I would definetly be contacting them again in the summer for extra work. Thanks Chuck And Nate!!!!!!!!!
Advance Contracting was recommended to us by a friend after we saw their deck. My husband and I were still undecided and couldn't agree on exactly what we wanted for our deck size and style, but gave them a call anyway. Kyle and Shay came out and were able to design a plan that not only incorporated both of our ideas but came in under our budget. They knew exactly what we wanted even though we didn't. This was the easiest and quickest process we have ever gone through. Within a week of first contacting them we chose our materials, had a contract signed, plans drawn up and a permit in hand. Construction went very quickly with only a few minor issues along the way. Our rails had to be moved from where we originally had them put which led to a few other modifications during construction, but it wasn't anything extreme. Kyle and Shay were on site daily checking the progress, answering any questions we had and, most importantly, making sure we were happy with the results. Advance Contracting treated us more like family & friends instead of just customers. We asked for a little fine detail work to be completed after the deck had passed inspection and they didn't want final payment until we were happy with those results. In about three weeks we went from estimate to a beautiful deck. We are very happy with Advance Contracting and would gladly give them any other business we may have in the future. Since our deck has been completed, they've also built our next door neighbor's deck and I've had four others in the neighborhood ask who built ours. I've gladly passed on Kyle's business cards.
Advance Contracting exceeded our expectations every step of the way. They are reliable and the quality of the work is amazing. I Highly recommend Advance Contracting
I couldn't be happier with the work I had done by Advance Contracting. They were extremely professional, courteous, and timely. They were always in constant communication with me regarding the status of our job. The deck they built came out beautiful! I would absolutely recommend these guys to anyone looking for some work done on their home. Honestly I have never been so satisfied with a contractor as I am with the Advance Contracting guys.
The estimate I received was just about perfect. Project manager was very easy to work with. The crew was very fast, friendly, good....always cleaned up and the end of the day. Would highly recommend to others and use again for other projects
These gentlemen were very quick, courteous, and did an outstanding job on our deck and patio. The rain was a big factor for them but every dry chance they got they were there working. We also have small children and when they finished working they were very cautious in making sure to pick up all lose material lying around in the yard and making sure all was safe before the children came into the back yard. Follow up was made on a daily basis to keep us informed on the status of the work. We plan on using their services again in the near future to complete a fence for us!!!!!!!!
