Featured Reviews for Home Builders in Richmond
VMAX LLC
Home Builders in Richmond
"I highly recommend VMax, LLC for any construction project; whether it is building a home or doing a remodeling project. They are very knowledgeable of the construction business. They have good ideas but are very willing to listen to your thoughts. They are dependable; and meet their deadlines. You can rely on receiving an honest estimate. Their cost are reasonable; budgets are met and if there are changes they will discuss with you first - nothing is unknown. Their sub-contractors are professional and respectful. They have completed several remodeling jobs in my home. My kitchen and den were remodeled to open up an area that was previously part of my parents apartment. Part of the remodel included creating a home office for my business. They have also remodeled a bathroom in my home."

Covenant Building & Design
Home Builders in Richmond
"Covenant Building and Design goes above and beyond in their quality and customer service. They communicate with the customer and make them feel like your house is the only house they're building. We have enjoyed our experience with them so much and can't say enough about them. Adam and Megan are the quintessential masters in dealing with their customers and their contractors are held to the same high standard. Anyone would be lucky to have them build a home for them."
- Patricia Godfrey
Balducci Builders
Home Builders in Richmond
"Wow, what a fantastic experience with Balducci Builders and their entire staff during the renovation of our home in conjunction with filming the show, Fix It and Finish. From start to finish, we greatly appreciate the staff’s professional approach, hard work, and attention to details to make our home a much better place to live while increasing our property’s value. It was an amazing feat to see their staff complete the renovations of our playroom (daughter’s new bedroom) and bedroom (new home office) ALL in one day. Balducci Builders demonstrated their talent and expertise during the demolition stage and by providing top notch painting, electrical, flooring, and carpentry (love the stage) services. The company even contracted a cleaning service, Chem-Dry of Henrico, to clean our home after the completion of the job. Our family enjoyed meeting the owners of Balducci Builders and staff on site during the renovation process, and we highly recommend Balducci Builders for building or renovating your home. We will never forget our experience with Balducci Builders and will enjoy our new rooms for years to come!"

Krickovic and Ziegler,LLC
Home Builders in Richmond
"Mike, Rusty and the entire K&Z team are fantastic! Anxious about the home building process, K&Z respectfully offered us the guidance and support we needed to ensure our satisfaction throughout the process and with our beautiful new home. We worked specifically with Mike who was personally invested in our project with a constant presence on site to ensure quality craftsmanship and on-time completion. We’ve been in our house almost a year now, and Mike continues to check in to make sure our home continues to live up to his high standards. Many of the homes in our neighborhood were built by K&Z and we hear the same high praise from all of our neighbors. It’s rare and refreshing to sit around with neighbors exchanging stories praising the work ethic and character of their builder. With confidence we recommend K&Z to anyone considering building or remodeling."

River City Custom Homes
Home Builders in Richmond
"River City built our dream home. They were willing to customize anything we wanted. We began with one of their plans and then moved walls, changed doorways, added a sunroom, etc. Not only were they professional, they were fun to work with. How many people can say that building a house was fun? We’ve been in the house for 9 months now. We will do another walk through soon, so any small items can be corrected, but I know that if something were to arise, River City will correct the issue. They also work with quality vendors for cabinets, flooring, stone, tile, lighting, appliances, etc. Our home was finished on time. I highly recommend River City."
- Debbie Marcussen

Colonial Homecrafters is a builder focused on quality and excellent customer service. We have had pleasant and successful working experiences both times -- we would definitely recommend Colonial Homecrafters and Eddie Goode (and have!!)."

Ingram Bay Homes
Home Builders in Richmond
"My husband and I hired Vincent to renovate our 108-year-old house. The project was very involved. We tore the original structure down to the studs and flooring, took off part of the house, and added back a kitchen, family room, amd master bedroom/bathroom suite. Vincent and Lydia worked with us every step of the way, helping us to make choices and guiding us along. Vincent is honest, knowledgeable, and thorough. The men who work with him are professional and very, very hard-working. They have worked with him for many years. Vincent hires the best subcontractors who know the business. He is a small businessman who is dedicated to his business. We are extremely pleased with every aspect of our job. I can't say enough good things about Vincent, Lydia, and Ingram Bay Contracting Company. If you live on the Northern Neck of Virginia and are planning a build/renovation project, please consider Vincent Haynie and Ingram Bay."

What do new home builders do?


For residential home builders who also act as developers, the job starts well before the first nail is driven. They perform local market research to determine whether the prospective homesites make sense in the Richmond market, as well as survey the land on which the house will be built to make sure it is suitable for construction. Custom builders also obtain the necessary permits.

A good custom home builder in Richmond has skills that go far beyond construction — he or she must supervise subcontractors and artisans; keep tabs on local zoning regulations, building codes and other legalities; inspect work for problems along the way; and perform dozens of other roles that are essential in building a quality house. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of home builders: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Kitchen & Bath Designers, Specialty Contractors.

House builders are responsible for ensuring that the home-building project sticks as closely as possible to the specified timetable, particularly in the event of change orders. Custom and luxury home builders in Richmond also need interpersonal skills to deal with clients of all types, soothe frazzled nerves, negotiate conflicts and resolve problems.

Questions to ask a prospective custom home builder in Richmond:


  • How long have you been in the home building business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • May I see a current jobsite?
  • Can you give me the addresses of some houses you have built?
  • Are you and your employees licensed and insured?
  • What license(s) do you have?
  • What other training and affiliations do you have?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • How will I be charged for parts and materials?
  • When can your job get done?
  • What is your policy for change orders?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
