Testimonials - Design/Build
"They gutted and completely rebuilt our main floor which included the kitchen. They were personable,
accommodating and fair. They listened to what we wanted and had to say."
- Susan Williams, Great Falls
"Home Equity Builders remodeled our basement and did a great job from start to finish. We were
very pleased with the final product. Jeff Rainey and his team were very polite, clean and
professional throughout the project. The remodeling job was fairly extensive, lasting throughout
- Maggie O'Connor, Great Falls
"We have used Home Equity Builders and were very pleased with the work done. They completely
re-built a decorative balcony on the front of our house. The personnel were very pleasant to
deal with, were timely about their work, and explained any unavoidable delays. The worksite
itself was kept clean and passable. While the job was not inexpensive, I feel that the quality
of the materials and the design itself will help us to avoid having to replace the balcony again.
I highly recommend them."
- Heidi Warrington, Northern Virginia
"We are excited about our wonderful home, I have been recommending them right and left. They

"They are very good! They were completely honest and straightforward. The best I have ever dealt
with and the only people I will deal with from here on out."
- Mary & David Major, Great Falls
"I absolutely love the kitchen - it is beautiful, beautiful! It is so gorgeous and when people
come in they love it! We tell them that Home Equity did it. We didn't gut the place, they just
worked with what we had and it is very functional, very nice, I just love it. One to 5,
I would rate my kitchen renovation a 10!"
- Kate & Terry Lowe, Herndon
"We held scant hope that anyone could add charm and interest to the exterior of our home.
Before, it could be compared with the starkness of a 1970’s nursing home. Now we see a
continental country house. This is the miracle of the innovations. Changing the skylights
into dormers lightens the roof. Replacing the sticklike columns with rounder, more shapely
columns adds grace to the front porch entry. The addition of cornice mouldings with complementary
color patterns, carved wood doors, beaded soffit ceilings and window shutters offer a visual feast."
- David Nace, Great Falls
"We expected to work with a general contractor who listened to our requests, advised us based
on a proven track record, communicated clearly, paid attention to detail, and kept to agreed-upon
timetables and budgets. You exceeded these tough standards. Thank you for your care in your business
and for adding value as well as beauty to our home."
- Michele Pecora, McLean
"We found Jeff and his team excellent to work with. The craftsmanship of work performed was
outstanding and the attention to minimize the inconvenience for my wife and me during this
major construction project was much appreciated. If we were to go through the process all
over again, we would definitely make the same decision and contract with Jeff Rainey and Home
- Marty & Kathy DiMezza, Great Falls
"When I was interviewing contractors to remodel the kitchen in our Old Town house, I knew I
wanted someone who had experience with upscale designs and materials as well as an expertise
with high end appliances. Knowing Home Equity Builders' track record, I knew that they would
do the best job on our kitchen. The overall quality of work - craftsmanship, really - was exceptional.
The principals of Home Equity Builders hold themselves to a standard that is much higher than
any other contractor I have ever come into contact with. I would rather wait the extra months
for Home Equity to do my next construction project than take a chance with some other

can't say enough good things about HEB and we'd be happy to share our wonderful experience with
- Cheryl & Paul Pantano, Vienna, VA
"Everyone who has seen the finished product has commented about the dramatic improvement and
quality construction. The inconvenience of living without a kitchen was minimized because you
stayed on schedule and your employees were so conscientious in cleaning up at the end of every
day. They did a great job in limiting the disruption of our daily routine. Pat is a superb
craftsman and exceptionally thorough. Feel free to use our home as an example for future customers."
- Dick & Linda Lind, Burke, VA
