5.0 Matt S.

I thought they did a great job!

2.0 Andrew S. Henrico, VA

A problem arose with my project done by First Call, as verified by another contractor. First Call will not address it. I will have to hire another company to correct the problem. Our working relationship with First Call has ended extremely poorly.

5.0 Matt S. Midlothian, VA

Don Johnson and his team did a fantastic job on our new detached garage and coach house. We had multiple groups come out to review the project and quote the work, but Don's experience, candor and general attitude won First Call the project. The price was right as well! We highly recommend working with First Call. In today's building environment, you want a pro that can not only start the job, but finish. We ran into some unforeseen delays with the county and utility departments, but Don was persistent and stayed the course and completed this project in a good timeframe. We are extremely happy with the design and details that went into the buildout. We wanted the detached garage and coach house to feel like it was apart of the main house that was built in 1973. From the slope of the roofline to the siding and cottage windows, it all flows seamlessly and we have received multiple comments about this. Again, very highly recommend Don and his team and we feel frankly feel blessed to have worked with them for this project. Thanks Don!

5.0 Andrew S. Henrico, VA

Don is a fair, honest, practical, and professional businessperson. He is genuinely committed to providing quality work at a good price. We had him build a sunroom, screened porch, and shed, and significantly remodel our basement. We are quite pleased with the results and have no doubt we got more than our money's worth.

5.0 Joseph M. Manakin-sabot, VA

We are extremely pleased with the multiple projects First Call construction did for us. The first project was to install a drainage system for our 4 acre pond. Donald Johnson and his crew did an excellent job with the project at a very reasonable cost. They went above and beyond what I was expecting. That's when I found out that Donald did home remodeling as well. We were remodeling our 11,000 sq ft. House so that we could place it on the market for sale. We agreed to the work that needed to be done, the price, and the time frame for the job to be competed. Donald and his very professional crews completed all the work, on time and also with a quality that was above our expectation. he also pointed out things that needed improvement that we had initially not included in the agreement. He completed extra projects that needed to be done, without increasing the total price of the project. I give Donald and First Call Construction my highest recommendation and I strongly recommend them for any home remodeling project you are considering. If I could give them a higher recommendation than 5 stars, I would. Thanks Donald and and all the great people at First Call Construction for all you do!!! Joe McConnell

5.0 Bernie B. Midlothian, VA

We had an old deck torn out and a new screened porch plus deck installed. It was an amazing job at a very reasonable price. Mr. Johnson was great to work with and had great crews working for him. The work was done in a good time frame (two weeks) and the work is marvelous! We couldn't have asked for better! We would highly recommend Mr. Johnson and First Call Construction for your project!

5.0 Jessica M. Richmond, VA

If it were possible to select a higher rating than 5, I would. We had our second (and absolute last!) child and we're in desperate need of another bedroom. Desperate. Don came over to meet with me and offered more information and a more positive budgetary outlook than three other contractors I've met with over the last few years regarding this same project. Not only did Don agree to the scope of work, but he delivered way beyond that. Whereas we thought we would need to use the existing structure to make the job possible, Don's commitment to quality and his longstanding relationships with his subs allowed us to completely start from scratch without impacting the budget. I could absolutely go on and on regarding the five star level of communication and support we were afforded from start to finish. It has been a completely painless process. And as someone who works in commercial construction, I know better than most how uncomfortable construction can be. Don was our buffer at all times. I could not be more grateful for meeting Don when we did. Our life is overwhelming. This addition was not. And for that, and FINALLY getting this small boy out of my room, I will be eternally grateful!

5.0 Joe S. Richmond, VA

Don built for us a handicap accessible, master bedroom, bath, and walk-in closet on the first floor of our home. Don was fully engaged in every step of the entire process from developing the building plans to ensuring the final details of the project were completed. The project was completed on time, for the agreed upon price and was done in a very professional manner. We are very pleased with his expertise and quality of workmanship. We would highly recommend First Step to any homeowner.

5.0 June H. Powhatan, VA

I needed an addition built and had a hard time finding a contractor to come and give me an estimate in Powhatan - I got a couple over the phone estimates and knew that would not work. I started asking friends for recommendations and thank goodness I found First Call Construction Services! The owner, Donald Johnson, called back right away and set up an appointment time to come walk the property and advise me on what I could have done. The addition was to be built onto my daughters house, so Mr. Johnson had 2 picky females to contend with. He was extremely easy to talk with and knowledgeable about any questions we had. I liked that he wrote up a contract with a step by step schedule and price estimate. One important thing we wanted was for the addition to blend in and look like it had always been here. Mr. Johnson was very conscientious about that and even though the addition was my project and for me, he was very considerate of the fact that my daughter owned the house he was building onto. He was at the work site daily and made sure things were going smoothly and being done on schedule, never got impatient, he treated his crews respectfully. All of his subcontractors were polite, friendly and professional--and performed excellent work, down to every detail. I asked for a windowsill on a large window, and I got an expertly built custom windowsill that resembles a mantle! The entire addition, inside and out, is beautiful, it is exactly what I wanted! It was important to Mr. Johnson that my daughter and I were happy with the project. He is a true, honest businessman. I would not hesitate to call on First Call Construction Services. Thank you!

5.0 Jennifer L. Glen Allen, VA

We wanted an addition added to an existing bathroom including a complete remodel. Don J. did a complete redesign/renovation of our master bath with amazing attention to detail. He is highly professional and completely trustworthy with an incredible talent for designing. We had interviewed other renovation companies and read reviews. We also knew the horror stories from friends and neighbors - unfortunately, some first hand, about selecting the wrong one! None of that with the First Call! Don and all of his subs were always professional, patient and courteous, and always arrived when they said they would! We would definitely use this company again and would recommend him to anyone without reservation. A few weeks into our project, Don had a serious family emergency, but even dealing with that, our project remained on schedule. He far exceeded all of our expectations and we would immediately turn to him again if we were to have any additional renovation needs. He is truly full service -- from creating the design to following through in making it exactly (and in some cases, better) than was planned. He works extremely hard to be sure that you get exactly what you want and to be sure all goes smoothly.
