A word from the builder…
Whether building, remodeling or renovating, the reality is- that there are a lot
of moving parts, personalities, and interdependent sequences of events that must
take place in order to complete a project in an organized and timely manner. I
guide my clients through the entire process, and provide them with a detailed
project timeline before beginning construction. We, at Blue Rock Builders, take
great pride in the relationships we have cultivated with our suppliers and
contractors to create a well oiled machine- that together with our depth of
knowledge and experience is able to deliver excellence. Please read what some
previous clients have said about us below, and I look forward to meeting you
personally to discuss my company's ability to complete your project.
"I absolutely recommend Blue Rock Builders for your remodel. They
transformed our attic space into a very nice maid's quarters. The work was not
easy as it involved extensive re-working of plumbing, electric, & air
conditioning. I was very impressed by the planning, quality, and execution of
the work. All of the workers were very professional. They also did extensive
renovation to our exterior which involved, adding drainage, rebuilding a fence
and pouring a concrete patio. It was very refreshing to deal with such an
exceptional company. They finished on time, on budget, and I definitely plan to
use them for future projects."
"I employed the services of Blue Rock
Builders, under the careful supervision of John Leonard, for several jobs, none
of which was straightforward or easy, since we were hiring them to fix other
people's mistakes on our new home construction that had been neglected or
mismanaged by another builder. I also hired Blue Rock Builders to update and
repair the home I was trying to get ready to put on the market (they did a
beautiful, cost-effective update, which helped result in my home selling in less
than 2 days).
I recommend this company without
reservation for many reasons. The first is John Leonard's careful assessment and
understanding of what needed to be done and what our goals were; I was also
impressed by his professionalism and that of his employees, from honesty,
timeliness, and overall respect for the client. Their rates are competitive,
employees in each specialization are very qualified and followed through to a
great result (we had tile work, electrical, painting and plumbing work done).
The employees were neat and cleaned up after themselves as they went; and
everyone associated with Blue Rock Builders honored their commitments.
Additionally, John Leonard responds to his client in a timely way and has a very
pleasant, optimistic demeanor, which was refreshing, especially since we had had
so much frustration with our first builder, who rarely responded to any calls,
emails or letters. I would not hesitate to hire Blue Rock Builders for other
projects in the future. In fact, they would probably be my first call."
"John's company updated the exterior of my home. His crews
removed the stucco bands around my front entry areas and replaced them with cast
stone. He also replaced tile on my balcony and did some re-working of the iron
railing and paint. They took great care to not to damage my garden which was a
concern for me. I am very happy with the outcome and endorse him as a very
competent general contractor."
"To whom this may concern,
We hired John Leonard of Blue Rock
Builders to be our general contractor. We found ourselves in a very desperate
situation and having John involved was a blessing. We were having our home built
by an unscrupulous builder. After many delays, a deteriorating working
relationship and extra costs, this builder had a financial meltdown and could
not continue the project beyond the beginning of the mechanical rough-in. I had
to quickly assume the construction loan, acquire additional insurance coverage
and look for another builder/general contractor to finish our home.
I initially asked John for a
proposal, and ultimately chose him over two others. He came in and gave us an
assessment where our construction stood and what it would take to finish. John
interviewed all the tradesmen and vendors that were involved with our house. He
gave us his opinion who we should continue with and not. He also found out if
the previous builder was current with his payments to all those involved. We did
not want to have any unexpected outstanding liens at closing.
We found John to be very thorough in
his investigation and assessment. We liked the way he was organized and his
clarity of communicating with us. After hiring John, we quickly saw his
dedication and hard work. He gave us a timetable for completion and kept us
updated frequently on where we were on the schedule. We were informed quickly on
unexpected situations that arose.
We have been living in our home for
the last two years. We have had some minor issues due to the previous builder
but John attended to these promptly.
We feel very fortunate
that John Leonard stepped in and finished our home in a very satisfactory
manner. We are very happy with our new home and feel very confident that it was
completely correctly. We would recommend John Leonard. He is a professional and
honest individual- not a common trait for many others in the building industry."

"We found John and his crew to be professional, tidy, and in tune
with our needs. Our experience working with John and his company was completely
A & C Knickerbocker
"John did a major remodel on our entire house. He surpassed our
expectations. I have hired many contractors throughout the years and this is the
first time I have had one finish on time without any unexpected bills. I have
since used Blue Rock Builders on another house with great results. I recommend
him without hesitation."
B & B Hill
"My parents and I worked with John of Blue Rock Builders in the
summer of 2010. They moved into a house that needed remodeling so we hired John
to take care of the project. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. Always
available, on time and willing to help with whatever we needed. It is very
obvious John takes great pride in his work as it shows in the contractors he
works with. He helped make this house a home for my parents and we couldn't be
more pleased with the work he did!"
"Blue Rock Builders, together with his recommended interior
designer, remodeled our home from an out of date mid 1980's home to a
sophisticated modern home. The project was very well planned and I am truly
amazed at the quality and the speed at which it was accomplished. I would
recommend this company to anyone thinking of hiring for a remodel."
