CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

“Advanced Contracting is the construction contractor of your dreams.  I recommend them without reservation and grade them A+. 

Faced with an upstairs shower leak from a burst pipe that flooded the walls, ceiling, and kitchen below, Advanced Contracting came in and repaired the damage to these areas and replaced the shower walls, tiling and flooring.

They are complete professionals. Everything went exactly as planned and promised. Owner Randy is a true and inspired craftsman with a deep knowledge base and high level of expertise. He dots every “I” and crosses every “T”. Under his direction, his entire crew functions as a well oiled and skilled machine who are wonderful to work with.

I called several contractors before deciding on Advanced.    No one else came close to offering the flawless level of service and expertise that Advanced Contracting provided.

Advanced contracting is a complete pleasure to work with and delivered everything on schedule as promised. You cannot ask for more. If you are fortunate enough to find that they are available for your job, I suggest you hire them right away.” Love your work!!   Falls Church, VA   2017     


Randy and Patty were fantastic to work with during our whole house renovation which included a new kitchen, Master and hall baths, and staircase.  We gave them a very tight schedule with a lot of wants, and they worked closely with us to make both realistic. Highly communicative, they kept us up to date on the schedule, noting even the smallest issues that arose, and where it was wise to make adjustments to our plan.  In the end, they were able to complete the project on time and in budget. We are thrilled with the outcome and would definitely recommend this contractor to deliver an outstanding renovation project. In fact, we will use them again for future projects that we will do to our house.

13434797_2626948370693731_8938729649773251308_nWe used Advanced Contracting, Inc. (ACI) to finish a top level of our three level townhouse. They put in a bathroom in a unfinished space (new plumbing), extended wood floors and refinished existing floors. It was our first renovation and were under very tight timeline. We are happy to say Randy and Patty know how to deliver! We could not have asked for a better contractor to work with.

We got several estimates from different companies (as a good home owner would). There are several areas that ACI stood out from others. First, they listen – they listened to our questions and actually hear the underlying concerns that is triggering the question. We found that other contractors didn’t hear what we had to say, or busy saying what they had to say (ie: showing off expertise), or just agreed to whatever we said. Second, they are available and patient in addressing each questions and concerns. Randy and Patty held our hands each step of the way and never left any questions/issues unanswered. Third, they are very organized and structured, which we appreciated for our first renovation. Fourth, they are great communicators. They informed us what was happening each day and it got done by the end of each day. Despite the tight deadline, they completed the project on time with high level of detail to the very end. Lastly, Randy, Patty, and their team are just a pleasure to work with! We are extremely happy with the new space and have already recommended them to two people. We would definitely contact them again for our future projects. Reston, VA   2016


13442368_2626957387359496_135304107387859550_nWe had our master bathroom remodeled by Advanced Contracting. They completed the job a week early and were within the budget we set. It was a complex job because every fixture (toilet, tub, shower, vanity) moved. We were limited in the design because the room has 8 windows (and 9 walls). The new design is a huge improvement with more storage space, better layout, and more counter space. We were very satisfied with the job that they did.  Leesburg, VA 2016

                                   


11226930_2428138963908007_1298182044264762446_nWe have used Advanced Contracting for several remodeling jobs starting with a kitchen remodel followed by window replacement, siding replacement, deck replacement, hardscape, 3 bathroom remodels, and a mud room remodel. All of the jobs were completed on time and within budget. Our most recent job (master bath) was completed a week early! Advanced Contracting’s attention to detail ensures a quality job. We highly recommend their services.Leesburg, VA  2016

 

 

 


                                                     We hired Advanced to perform a bathroom renovation, adding a shower by converting a closet11048689_2428147447240492_6389361407800170950_n adjacent to a powder room. The bathroom layout was reconfigured to make it more efficient. We had a hard completion date that allowed about 5 weeks for the job to be 100% complete. The job was performed and completed within the allotted time frame, with some of Advanced team members working very long days toward the end. The work was completed on time and to spec. I give Advanced an A+, Randy and team are a pleasure to work with!  Leesburg, VA  2016

 

 


We used Advanced Contracting to remodel our master bathroom and laundry room. We can not be more pleased with the level of service and attention to detail they paid to our home. Patty, Randy and the crew went above and beyond and gave us a beautiful new space that we’re so happy with. We’ll be using them again in any future work and strongly recommend them to others.  Herndon, VA  2016

Advanced Contracting was terrific, very professional and responsive to my settlement deadline. They went the extra mile to manage the project and anticipate the various scenarios. Very accessible by phone, text and email. The work was done while I was away and they were very trustworthy and careful in my home. I really felt that we were a team!  Falls Church, VA  2015


Advanced Contracting did an outstanding job remodeling our kitchen. From planning through the various stages of work, Randy and Patty maintained excellent communication with us, contributed helpful ideas, and ensured that the few snags that invariably arose were resolved quickly. Their subcontractors are of the highest quality. We would definitely use this company for future projects. Herndon, VA  2015


We used Advanced Contracting to remodel our kitchen. The experience was so positive that we have since had them remodel 2 bathrooms, a powder room and a mudroom, replace our windows and siding, and replace our deck and add hardscape. The advice that they provide in the planning process is invaluable. We trust them and know that they are working for us and they deliver.                Leesburg, Va  2015


We asked Advanced Contracting & Remodeling to handle several, unrelated projects for us – from replacing a door to replacing a tile floor with a heated marble tile floor. I have high expectations that are usually disappointed but our experience with Randy and Patty was more than I could have hoped for. They listened to what we wanted, offered helpful suggestions, and even traveled quite a distance to pick up our tile. More importantly, they care very much about their clients’ satisfaction and deliver an expertly crafted product. They also happen to be really good people. We’ll never use anyone else.  McLean, VA  2015


Randy and his team did a thorough inspection and assessment of a foundation issue that was impacting the structural integrity of our 150 year old house. They hand dug a new footer in a difficult space and installed a jack post to stabilize the structure. Communication was excellent. All work was on schedule. Work site was kept clean, and work was performed at the quoted cost. Outstanding contractor!  Vienna, VA  2015


We recently worked with Advanced Contracting to remodel a powder room and a bathroom. The experience was very positive and the results, exceptional. The bathroom had several issues but Advanced Contracting worked with us to address them and create a design that would improve the functionality of the room. Selecting materials (tile, vanity, fixtures, shower door, etc.) can be intimidating but Advanced Contracting guided us through the process. All of the vendors that they sent us to were extremely knowledgeable and helpful, making the selection process very easy. We were pleased with the work of each of the workmen – electrician, plumber, tile installers, painter, shower door installers. The end result is two rooms we are thrilled with. We feel that we have significantly enhanced the value of our home with these changes. Our experience was positive and we plan to work with Advanced Contracting to remodel the remaining two bathrooms in our home.  Leesburg, VA  2015


We used Advanced Contracting to remodel 4 bathrooms. They did a beautiful job which they took great pride in. They were well organized, accomplished what they said they would and made as little mess as possible which they cleaned at the end of each day. All the workers were polite, friendly, considerate and meticulous. They helped us find vendors where we could look at products and made very helpful suggestions. We only have wonderful things to say about this company and would strongly and happily recommend them.  Annandale, VA  2014


Patty and Randy Iacone did a wonderful job for us. They understood that our place was simple and plain, and were willing to help us keep it so. Randy gave us enough information to make good choices. They did the work on plan and within budget, and the results are fantastic. We’ve already asked them to come look at another job.   Falls Church, VA  2014


11136783_2410874118967825_3341261892781155246_nProject was very well done, and we knew Randy is focused on coming up with creative solutions to make the best use of the space. The work team was excellent and took great care to clean up at the end of each day. Just ran into one problem when the team didn’t execute according to plan, but they fixed the problem with just a few extra days’ work, at no additional cost. Will definitely use them again for future projects!  Reston, VA  2014


We hired Randy & Advanced Contracting to replace a kitchen door, repair a sub-floor of the damaged door,install a porcelain tile kitchen floor,install granite counter-tops and install new kitchen appliances. We have no regrets. In fact we are preparing to hire them to remodel our upstairs bathrooms.They did a great job and provided lots of ideas. They have excellent customer references.  Sterling, VA  2014


Patty and Randy remodeled our home last summer and we are very happy with the results. We encountered many structural problems and we had to rely on them to take care of them in our absence which is a big leap of faith when undergoing a major house project. They took care of the many pitfalls such as plumbing problems and a tree falling on our roof! It’s hard to find people you can trust, but we were in good hands.  Fairfax, VA  2014


Randy and crew did a fabulous job with a difficult project and the price was right. I needed to replace 6 decorative columns on my front porch that were 17 feet tall each. I searched for the right company for over a year (other companies were either too expensive or they did not have the experience). So glad I finally met Randy through Checkbook. Advanced Contracting was careful with our flower bed and clean. These are high quality hollow fiberglass columns and 6×6 wood posts had to be inserted inside AND anchored both top and bottom. Finally columns also painted. I will definitely be working with Advanced Contracting again.  Great Falls, VA  2014


Randy & Patty and the entire ACI team are true professionals. Over the past four years we’ve used ACI for three different remodeling projects (kitchen, master bath, guest bath) and soon our fourth project, a front entrance and front porch remodel. Randy & Pattys first step is to listen. They worked with us to understand our wants, needs and budget. They communicated during the entire process to insure that our goals were being met. From beginning to end, Randy and Patty were always in touch with us. Randy was on site every day; they accompanied us to vendor or supplier sites, and guided us without pushing us into decisions. Additionally, ACI stands behind their work and the products brought into our home. When we had a problem with the hardwood flooring a supplier had installed, ACI committed to resolving the problem. ACIs knowledge of their industry resulted in our floor being replaced with new hardwood. You can count on ACI to be meticulous, enthusiastic and deliver complete satisfaction. Its a pleasure to work with Randy and Patty and we highly recommend ACI for your home projects, large or small.   Warrenton, VA  2014


Advanced Contracting is a terrific contractor. Very thorough in planning the project and establishing costs. Work is always of the highest quality. And they stand behind their work, making any minor fixes necessary as requested. I highly recommend Advanced Contracting.  Annandale, VA  2014


Randy Iacone is the most professional contractor I have ever dealt with. He is a pleasure to deal with. Randy was very amenable to changes we made in the plans after the work had begun, and offered timely advice on the remodel. The work was done superbly. The crews were very experienced. The various crews arrived at our house as scheduled and on time. The workers were very diligent in focusing on the job at hand. Cleanup after the work was outstanding. You wouldn’t know crews had been going in and out of the house. I will definitely recommend Randy to anyone.  Great Falls, VA  2014


Dear Patty & Randy, There are really no words that can express how grateful Chris & I are to have you for all that you have done for us. I simply can’t imagine how stressful & awful the whole house reconstruction process would have been with any other team. Instead, working you has been an experience to reinforce our respect and admiration for you even more. You both proved to us once again that there are honest, reliable, honorable people out there – even in the competitive world of contractors! 🙂 We are so excited to see our “new” house next week and also seeing you! Thank you again! Kathy & Chris.   Annandale, VA  2013


July 05, 2013 ACI has done three major projects for me over the past nine years. Their service and attention to detail has gotten better with each project. ACI staff is available and present during the project so there are no worries about them disappearing during the work being done. They take pride in ensuring that your home is treated with respect during the work. Strongly recommend for whatever project you are considering.  Alexandria, VA  2013


Advanced Contracting performed a wide range of services in our home as part of our preparations to market our home. These included drywall repair and installation, foam insulation, painting, carpentry, cable routing, electrical repairs, masonry and power washing. Everything was specified in a easy-to-understand contract and was performed at the prices established at the commencement of work. The work itself was performed in an expert fashion with minimum disruption to our daily routine. They offered numerous recommendations that resulted in a better outcome. Communications with Advanced Contracting were excellent. I can recommend this contractor without reservation.  Annandale, VA  2013


We have used ACI for several projects over the past 8 years. The most recent was the reconstruction of our house after a tree fell through the roof in October 2012. Words cannot describe how fortunate we are to have been able to call ACI for this project. We currently live in Germany and therefore could not immediately assess the damage, meet with the insurance adjuster, etc. Randy and Patty did all of these things and took charge of the repair job. The repairs were completed on-time, on budget and over the 8-month period we did not have to visit once to check on the progress. Randy and Patti Iaccone, and the people who work for them, are among the most professional, honest, responsible and honorable people I have ever met. Their standards are high and the work they do reflects this. Of the many projects they have done for us over the years, we have never had to call them back to fix or finish anything. They stand out and above in the field of contractors.  Annandale, VA  2013


For several years Advanced Contracting has been our go-to company for work on our home. They have completed a number of projects for us, both minor and fairly major. We have always been very pleased with the quality of their work. Everything is done in a timely manner and the clean-up has always been done to our satisfaction. We trust them sufficiently that we had them complete our last inside project while we were out of town for two weeks. We were pleased to return from our trip to find the place pretty much like new. Patty and Randy are a pleasure to work with and are always quickly responsive to our needs. We have had no hesitation to recommend them to our friends. We expect to call on them again next summer for a couple of projects.   Burke, VA  2013


Thank you so much for turning my tiny old embarrassing hall bathroom into an architectural phenomenon! I had been so ashamed of it before, that I dreaded having company come over and use it. ( I had been so ashamed that I didn’t even want a contractor come to look at it!) It wasn’t just the size — an uncomfortable and problematic two-by-nothing. It was so blah and boring and abysmally small, with old fixtures, poor lighting and crumbling tile and grout, which probably sent the message that I just didn’t care. And then…a friend recommended Advanced Contracting, because she’d been so pleased with your kitchen/bathroom remodel in her own home.Now I have a bathroom that I can’t wait to show my friends! It’s still just as small, but it certainly doesn’t look like it. The new pocket door just disappears into the wall, instead of the way the old door swung out into the hall. And the floor-to-ceiling mirrors that flank the elegant new corner sink were a stroke of genius! The two wall sconces reflect as EIGHT, making my windowless bathroom deceptively bright and breathtaking. Everything reflects as multiples, making it seem that there is incredible depth even though it’s such a miniature space. Your idea to build a niche of shelves right into the mirror was very bold, and I love how the tile in the niche and bordering the mirrors is matched to the accent tile in the shower. Oh, that shower! My old frosted glass (which hid an unsightly shower enclosure) is now completely clear glass, and the stunning tile design beyond is eye-catching and ties the whole bathroom together. I must compliment you also on the tradesmen who work for you. They were all highly skilled, polite, friendly and trustworthy. You and your workers did an amazing job, and I couldn’t be happier! And thank you again for a superb design and execution. Thanks especially for how well you both stayed in touch with me every step of the way, calling frequently and visiting the job site often. I hadn’t expected that, and you made me feel valued and important. I’m recommending Advanced Contracting to all my friends!My only concern now is for the health of my friends when I host parties. When they need to use my bathroom, and slide the pocket door open, they are bound to be so taken aback by the dramatic reflections before them that they will forget why they’re in there in the first place!  Marshall, VA  2012


My husband and I have been very happy with the work that Advanced Contracting has done at our house. We used them to do a complete remodel of our kitchen in 2006, bathroom in 2010, basement in 2011, and porticoes/siding/roof/bedroom in 2011. Advanced Contracting personnel were always professional. They worked with their subcontractors to make things right when things went wrong (which wasn’t often). Patty is extremely personable and conscientious. She keeps on top of the details and works well with the client. I am happy to recommend Patty, and Advanced Contracting.  Alexandria, VA  2012


ACI has done many projects for us, including a major remodel of our basement and the construction of a wine cellar — they complete every job, large or small, on time, at the price quoted, and at the highest quality that stands the test of time.  Annandale, VA  2011


Advanced Contracting is a local, family owned business. They have done remodeling projects in my home, including a home office, kitchen backsplash and custom carpentry. They also did a master bath remodel, and some exterior stone work. The quality of their work is excellent and I have recommended them several times over the past seven or eight years.   Round Hill, VA  2011


Thank you so much for the wonderful job I think I am the only person I know who doesn’t have a horror story regarding their contractor!! You will be highly recommended…  Fairfax, VA  2009


…it was an enormous relief to find a company we could actually trust to do the work/repairs properly and in a timely, professional manner.   Falls Church, VA  2008


I wish to commend the highly professional work that your crew performed, not only in their craftsmanship, but also in their conduct at the work site. I have dealt with a fair number of contractors involved with home remodeling over the past 20 plus years, and I am pleased to tell you that your company and crew are, without a doubt, the best I have ever worked with.  Annandale, VA  2008


 

I want to express how pleasant the design phase had been, both actually and aesthetically. We especially appreciated the manner in which you handled our selection of bathroom fixtures and tiles. You absorbed enough of our tastes and were able to convey those ideas to the designer so that our selection process was quite simple. I had assume that we would be facing the process of making quick selections from a myriad of choices and I was dreading that prospect. Instead, you made it a very satisfying experience.   Alexandria, VA  2008


We recently hired Advanced Contracting for a bathroom remodeling and water damage repair project. Patty, Randy, and their workers were very responsive, always on time, and an absolute pleasure to work with. Everything was done right the first time, on time. We wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.  Fairfax Station, VA  2008


Wanted to thank you for such a wonderful job on our house, it has made such a difference!!! Being in the business, I thought the process would be daunting but Randy did a great job on the design, making everything fit and Gary and J.R. were wonderful to work with. The craftsmanship of the work is very appreciated!!! We have already told our friends and neighbors to contact you when they want to improve their homes. We’ll call you in a few years when we start the next phase.  Alexandria, VA  2008


ACI was friendly, very cooperative, explained why they were doing things the way that they di”I am a repeat customer. That is probably the best way to praise ACI and their project management, and craftsmanship. Before I selected ACI the first time I did a great deal of research to determine if they were a responsible firm. In this area, the hardest part of a remodeling job is finding a responsible contractor who is going to do the work right the first time and still be there in case the are any issues after the work is complete. I checked out ACI with the BBB. When I talked to the lady at the BBB she told me there were no complaints against ACI. I said, “that is kind of unusual for a contractor.” Her reply was, “that is very unusual.” I asked ACI and received a list of references. I made many phone calls and also went to visit some of ACI’s jobs and was thoroughly impressed. My first job was a bathroom remodel and an upgrade/ finish of my laundry room and utility room. Randy worked with me during multiple planning meetings to ensure that what I wanted was translated into plans. Randy listened to my ideas and also offered his suggestions, some of which I incorporated into the plans some I did not but I always appreciated the sounding board that Randy provided. I then received a set quote and contract for the work. One of the things I disliked about other contractors was that they never seemed willing to give me a set price for a project but wanted to set up the work on an hourly basis. I found that the material was excellent, the workmanship was even better. During construction, the workers always respected the fact that they were working not in my house but in my home. After construction, I needed some follow-up work due to an equipment failure. The response was immediate with no delays due to other work or asking me to wait. For my second job, I had extensive woodwork done throughout the entire house and did not look to any other remodeler except ACI. Randy again met multiple times to listen to my ideas, offer suggestions and then constructed five mock-ups throughout the house to ensure what I wanted on paper was going to look good in my house. This second project is finishing up and the work again is first rate. I really enjoy working with ACI. There is ALWAYS someone at the other end of the phone or email. They constantly communicate with you by updating their schedule posted at your house to weekly meetings to a notebook left at the house for you to communicate daily with your work crew...Alexandria, VA  2007


Advanced Contracting is the most professional and customer-oriented company we have ever had the privilege to work with. They know exactly what theyre doing, they price it right the first time, they stick to their schedule, the quality of design and materials are unsurpassed, and they kept us informed on every detail no matter how minute. They have excellent people, communication, and process skills. Our only regret is that we didnt discover Advanced Contracting when we first moved into our new home and began additional upgrades to various rooms. Having Advanced Contracting do the work as opposed to other local companies would have made the earlier upgrades completed prior to finding this excellent local, small business, as good as the home office, lighting upgrades, kitchen upgrades, wine cabinet, and bathroom remodeling they did this year. We expect to have them back next year for additional home upgrades.  Round Hill, VA  2007


We had water damage from an ice dam during the March 2010 storm. Patty and Randy, owners of Advanced Contracting, helped guide us through the whole repair process. They provided estimates, dealt with the insurance adjuster and subcontractors, and performed all needed repairs in a timely and professional manner. Communication was excellent. They did a great job. I would not hesitate to use their services again and strongly recommend them to others. Thanks Advanced!  Alexandria, VA  2008


 We have lived in our house for nearly 20 years. When we moved in, the master bath was one of our favorite rooms. Over the years, the master bath has become less and less functional as well as dated. There was no place to store things. The room was difficult to clean because of all the angles where dirt collected. The triangular closet could barely store anything because it was so tiny. The room has 8 windows that would limit our design options. We hired Advanced Contracting to fix this space. Advanced Contracting came up with an updated design that eliminated all the angles, gave us more storage with a larger closet (with an interior light!), an improved vanity/double sink area, and a better flow through the room. Advanced Contracting made the remodel process easy. I am thrilled to work with such a professional and dedicated company!   Leesburg, VA
