Herman W. in Hurricane, WV

Project: Build an Addition

Comments: We are in the middle of our project and are very happy up to this point. The contractor is very professional, but easy to talk to and answers all of our questions. The crew is hard working and very dependable. We would recommend them to our friends and family and will plan to use them again for ourselves if we are ever in need of construction, addition or remodeling.

Project: Install or Completely Replace Vinyl Siding

Comments: Prentice Contracting was everything one wants from a builder/remodeler: their quote was competitive; their people were reliable and showed up sober and on time and worked an entire day; had excellent skills, good tools and were polite and considerate. We have a 2500+ square foot home. Pulled all the siding & re-sided, using high quality vinyl on some portions, cedar shake material on some and faux stone on chimney chases & under house; Versatex white custom trim around the windows; new soffit, fascia, gutters, & downspouts; stairs on porch & patio; fixed drainage on the pergola & repaired section of roof that had rotted. VERY PLEASED

Project: Add a Sunroom or Patio Enclosure

Comments: We contracted Prentice General Contracting to design and build our screened porch. John Truman worked with us through several revisions with patience and professionalism. The craftsmen were polite and skilled and worked full days until it was finished. They also did some things which were not part of the contract, such as putting up the hooks for our porch swing and installing a ceiling fan which was not a part of the original plans. They were professional, flexible, and easy to talk to and work with. It is a privilege to give them our highest recommendation. 

Lynn D. in Culloden, WV

Project: Build an Addition

Comments: I have worked with a few contractors in the area and I will have to say that Prentice is the only contract that I trust to get the job done right. The additions they build have turned out awesome. The crew was dependable and I was always keep informed of any issues that might arise. Other than your standard weather issues, the crew did an excellent job of getting the job done quickly. I strongly suggest checking with Prentice for your next job and at ALL costs avoid the contractors that Lowes and Home Depot want to sell you. These contractors tend to know less and cost you more in the long run.

Project: Remodel or Renovate One or More Rooms

Comments: Prentice General Contracting recently completed a major renovation of our 50 year old home. Everything was redone. New roof, new windows, new siding, new garage, recreation room, bedroom, bathroom, new kitchen design, new fixtures and tile in 3 existing bathrooms, refinished hardwood floors, new electrical and plumbing. Work began in August. John’s crew was at my house working long hours every day. Most of the work was completed before Christmas. He was always available to answer questions and to update me on any bumps in the road that came about. I have recommended Prentice to friends and family.

They have been satisfied with projects.

Pam H. in Charleston, WV

Project: Remodel a Bathroom

Comments: The staff maintained a professional attitude in dealing with me on the renovation of my bathroom. They were on time and cleaned up after themselves nightly while the job was in progress. They kept me informed of the problems as they arose in dealing with my old building and helping to accommodate for my elder year needs. They were polite and I appreciated their gentlemen manners.

Dorothy R. in Charleston, WV

Project: Build a Garage

Comments: John was friendly and professional during the project, and everything went well. Were flexible with payment schedule and all issues I had were resolved. Very good communication and professional crews. They always cleaned up, answered all of my questions, no matter how dumb the question was, and treated me with respect. Would definitely use them again in future projects, as the quality of work was excellent and the price was better than any of the 5 companies I had gotten bids from. Hats off.
