James L. Graves Construction did lots of home refurbishing and contracting work. They did everything from drywall to electrical, and they redid entire rooms. Overall, I'd give them an A+.
They were very responsive. Every time I called or spoke to them, I got a response back. I've had them here twice, and both times have been bath renovations. I'd say they get an A.
James L. Graves did a home remodel. They took two full bathrooms and expanded one into a master bath and turned the other one into a powder room. They also took a wall out in between two small rooms, creating a larger one. I'd give the experience an A.
They designed and completed our finished basement and custom refinished kitchen. They also coordinated with us to get all new windows. I'd rate them as an A.
They did a kitchen remodel. I'd give them an A for the overall experience.
They were good. I would give them an A.
The work that they completed looks really good. Their customer service in the beginning was a little dicey because they had one employee go out on maternity leave and another go out for surgery at the same time. But they got that straightened out later. They took two tiny little bathrooms and made them into one big bathroom. I would say they get an A.
They were super—absolutely wonderful. It was fabulous. I liked their professionalism and the fact that the contractors were respectful of our time and our home. Mr. Graves was always responsive to any question we had, and he was very collaborative in working with us and making sure the outcome was the best it could be. He was very receptive and just an easy person to work with. We refinished half of our basement, which included putting in a full bathroom. They earned an A+.
James L. Graves Construction was wonderful. They were very professional, and the work they did was outstanding. They renovated my master bathroom, and I would give them an A.
I had a good experience with James L. Graves Construction. The workmanship was really good, and the quote was very clear. We had a bathroom completed, and I'd rate them as an A.
