Herr & Co. completed the construction of a custom-designed house for us 18 months ago. A detailed construction plan and superb communication of its progress kept us up-to-date in meeting deadlines for all the many co-decisions needing to be made, even though we lived 200+ miles away.
From initial site analysis and collaboration in the architectural design, and with the use of their obvious construction skills, quality building supplies, and efficient and excellent subcontractors as needed, Mike and Jim made this an excellent experience. They were always attentive to any questions or suggestions we had along the way.
We are most happy with, and enjoy living in, our house built by Mike and Jim. We couldn’t have imagined a smoother proceeding project.
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.
Herr & Co. did all the work on the renovation of my building in downtown Harrisonburg about 10 years ago. I can’t begin to tell people how wonderful Jim and all the staff are to work with. They did an amazing job! All these years later, their work is standing the test of time. The best decision I ever made was to hire Herr & Co.
This is a house the Herr’s have built
the house is our home, a very good fit.
While we were able to do some of the jobs ourselves,
the quality subs and crews worked out well.
We wanted some special details inside,
a barn ladder newel post, beams and massive masonry fire side.
With a 5-year plan to spruce-up the yard,
the 10-year plan will more realistically work hard.
With 7 years down and many to go,
we thank the Herr & Co. for making it so.
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.
Mike and Jim built my house in 2011. The whole process was fantastic and they kept me informed and everything went smoothly. I was moved-in in eight months! I still love it today! Two years later, I had them remodel my veterinary hospital. And again, it went very smoothly and I stayed open throughout the entire process!
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.
I had the pleasure of working with Herr & Co. for a bathroom renovation and more recently a complete kitchen renovation. They are very professional and truly listened to us. Everyone involved was an expert in their trade and did quality work. They were on budget and also helped us re-purpose our old butcher block counter tops into floating shelves.
