See what our clients are saying about us

  • "What do we all look for in a builder on a small island when it’s personal, and generally relates to creating a lasting, meaningful, highly-valued asset? Honesty and integrity, experience and knowledge, reputational respect (subs who enjoy working with and speak highly of the builder after the fact), someone you can trust down to the penny, and in the end, a high-quality product. If that’s what you are looking for in a builder, look no further than Van and his team. We would definitely work with Van again, as both he and Jeanie Beth kept the entire experience as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.

    - Bill and Terri Horne
  • "Our entire experience with Van, and the crew at VWC, was fantastic. We were building a house long distance from California, and from start to finish — Van made the whole process easy and non-stressful. The communication throughout construction was excellent. From emails, to text messages, to photographs on the portal — we always knew exactly what was going on each week during construction. We had timelines when all our materials needed to be picked out, schedules when different phases of construction would start, and a budget that was clear, concise and easy to follow. There were never any surprises. Van, Jeanie Beth, Ricardo, AJ, and all the subs went above and beyond to make sure everything was done perfectly and we ended up with a gorgeous house we absolutely love.

    - Rick and Bev Shumate
  • "Van Waters Company took the utmost care of us throughout the entire process of building our forever home. They consistently paid close attention to detail and best practices using only quality materials and finishes that we are confident will stand the test of time. Regular and thorough communication kept us informed throughout every step of the build and the budget was kept with meticulous detail. Our home was completed on time, on budget and we are thrilled to pieces!

    - Marla and Butler Melnyk
  • "Van is a conscientious and knowledgeable builder and a kind and thoughtful person. We had the opportunity to meet and visit with most of the contractors and skilled tradesmen he employed on our home project and we were impressed by how complimentary they were of Van, his work, diligence and respectfulness. Van and Jeanie Beth were excellent at communicating during all phases of the project which made it easy for us to be halfway across the country during the process and still feel involved and up to speed. We were happy with the process and are thrilled with the finished product!

    - Bain and Brady Head
  • "Dawn and I are delighted to recommend The Van Waters Company. We have built several homes over the years and Van was by far the most creative, reliable, responsible and professional partner we ever had. Van takes tremendous pride in ownership. He and his staff share his sense of fairness and dedication to excellence. We have recommended him to many new residence at Frederica and would welcome anyone with questions to seek out our views.

    - Kevin Shea
  • "Experienced, honest and detail oriented are the words that I utilize to describe The Van Waters Company. Right from the beginning Van sought to understand our vision and worked closely with the architect to ensure that our designs were aligned both esthetically and financially. His estimates were accurate and allowed us to make selections and add design elements with the quality we expected. Both Van and Jeanie Beth were collaborative with the entire design team and were proactive in ensuring that there were not disconnects, communicating with us throughout the entire process. We could not have asked for a better experience in building our home and we did it from 1,500 miles away!
