I’ve known Jim Herr for more than 15 years and have engaged Herr & Company for both new and renovation projects in the residential and commercial markets. Jim’s building integrity has been one of the most visible and, for me, most appreciated attributes of his craft. This applies to materials and workmanship as well as to the relational (property owner/contractor and sub-contractor/contractor) aspects of his work. I recommend him and his company without reservation or caveat. It is a pleasure to own his final deliverables and to do business with him as he builds them.
When the Collins Center, a local nonprofit dedicated to the prevention and response to sexual abuse, relocated earlier this year, we were excited to be able to offer our clients, staff, and allied professionals a beautiful new space. However, as part of the move we encountered a series of design and build-out challenges specific to the needs of our agency. We had a strong desire for quality, wanting to ensure that our therapy offices, meeting spaces, and Child Advocacy Center were built out in a first-class manner, but we also faced budgetary constraints typical of a small non-profit. We are so grateful to Herr & Company for creatively and expertly addressing our needs. They were a pleasure to work with and, as supporters of the Collins Center’s mission, they generously donated a portion of their labor an materials. It’s been wonderful to find a builder who blends great talent and dependability with such a genuine sense of community mindedness.
In 2014, we returned to Harrisonburg and purchased our family home. We interviewed several contractors before selecting Herr & Co. We have been satisfied customers ever since. Jim, his son Mike, Justin, and staff handled everything for our Harrisonburg remodel to help us convert our 1950 house to a beautiful, modern, and extremely comfortable “new” home. The attention to detail was excellent and the quality of project management and finished carpentry was a 10 of 10 on our scale. We have been so pleased with their work we asked Herr & Co. back to complete additional finished carpentry projects for us.
