Testimonials

I hired AVEC to repair a deck and stairs damaged in a storm; at the same time I had them replace an adjoining deck. The experience with AVEC could not have been better. The work was completed on time and looks great — very high quality. The customer service was even better. The owner personally oversaw the work and immediately addressed a minor issue with the construction team. After the work was completed, I needed additional documentation for the insurance company. Again, the owner immediately responded with everything I needed (and more!). In an era where contractors are not responsive to the customer, AVEC is doing great!

AVEC did a great job on our deck. Fair price, got permits and designs done quickly, and we are very happy with our new deck.

A very pleasant experience from start to finish. We were adding a deck onto the back of our townhome. Kati was very polite and explained the process thoroughly. Construction started quickly, and the entire deck was up and inspected in less than three days. Kati was in communication with us throughout the project. Quality of the deck is quite good. On the second day we noticed that the trim which runs on the outer side of the railing was missing. We notified Kati and it was added without any issues. Very good service!

We had a screened porch and patio done by AVEC Construction and we can’t be any happier. Kati and her crew were friendly, professional, and a pleasure to work with. Kati was the first contractor to respond to our request (less than 5 minutes after submitting) and her attention to our questions and needs continued throughout the entire project. We were impressed by the quality of craftmanship and Kati did not hesitate to reaccomplish something if it didn’t look quite right. We would recommend AVEC Construction to anyone looking for a a quality product at a reasonable price. We will definitely use them again. AVEC is A++ in our book!!

AVEC construction is a great company. We worked with Kati the owner, and from day one everything went according to plan, We did a deck and there were some issues that arose with Fairfax County Code but Kati worked out all the details and returned to the County to get permits. This was the least stressful home project we have ever done. Kati and he crew arrived on the day scheduled and were focused in their work. We went to work and never worried abut anything. The Crew cleaned up everything and our backyard and deck look great! I can not praise them enough! Thanks IG and CF.

The AVEC experience was totally enjoyable. I met with Kati, the owner, who listened to what I had in mind for the deck. She took her measurements and later presented me with a design layout. I made a few changes to the design to which she promptly redrew the designs to my liking. The guys who worked on the deck were prompt and efficient in their work. The deck turned out far better than expected. AVEC’s attention to detail was great. Our neighbors, who just had decks built within the past year or so, love our deck design and the craftsmanship AVEC put into the work. Thank you Kati. High Quality work at a reasonable price!

AVEC Construction is one of the few contractors that will handle small brick jobs at a reasonable price. From start to finish, Kati was a visible presence and very responsive in her communications with me. Her crew, take out was painstakingly meticulous in laying and cutting the brick to give us the appearance we wanted in our back yard. I highly recommend this company!

- Christina D. in Alexandria, VA

Project is finished and our deck is beautiful! Kati and PJ were great to deal with, and they have a very gifted crew. Kati gave us a number of estimates for our ever changing minds :) In the end came up with a design we liked at a VERY competitive price. she was around $7500 cheaper than our other estimates. got back to us fastest. every change we made was answered with an estimate within 24 hrs. All inspections were passed with no issues. they were out in the snow working which to me shows dedication. Great company! Have passed on their information to a number of coworkers and friends and would recommend!

- Kim R. in Ashburn, VA

I cannot praise AVEC Construction’s work enough! Not only was the job done with very careful attention to detail, but they also proposed some variations to our landscaping ideas that made the final product much more beautiful. There is no question that we have the best yard in the neighborhood now, and we have received several compliments from our neighbors and friends. I would recommend AVEC Construction to anybody who wants to improve their landscaping, whether with stonework or a new fence!

Kathryn T. in Arlington, VA

After receiving several bids, we chose AVEC and we are glad we did. They were the first to contact us and schedule an appointment. They were extremely thorough suggesting ideas that we hadn’t considered. The bid was in the middle of everyone and competitive. They were able to start the work in a very timely manner as well. The quality of work was very good with only 1 minor problem that was easily corrected and AVEC was more than willing to do what we asked. The clean up was very good as well. I HIGHLY recommend them.

- Mark N. in Ashburn, VA

This contractor exceeded our expectations beginning with sound advice on the project, suggested ideas to improve what we had in mind, and completing the project ahead of time. We met with the owner, Kati, who provided the estimate and was on site daily to ensure the work was progressing according to our satisfaction. The first time we met Kati was to describe the project we had envisioned. She had her credentials–contractor license, insurance, and list of recent homeowners where they had either completed work or in the process of completing the work. Even that impressed us because other contractors did not have that information with them but stated they would send it. The price of the project was a little lower than the other estimates we received for the same type of work. I definitely recommend this contractor and plan to have them come back for some work we want done in the fall. We are very pleased with the workmanship and the character of this contractor.

- Judy or Gary W. in Annandale, VA

We are extremely pleased with AVEC Constructions’ installation of a deck and walkway that was taken out and completed. Kati, P.J., and the rest of the crew did a wonderful job and were very knowledgeable, professional, courteous, and responsive. Kati is a joy to work with — every contractor should be so competent and communicative. Any time we had to deal with any unknowns (as there are in any construction project), the AVEC team worked carefully with us to resolve questions and to ensure that we were pleased with the result. We wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone needing their types of services.

Kati Tolonen from Avec Constructions was wonderful! The crew was amazing and I absolutely love my deck. I receive compliments on the deck almost daily. We ran into a few issues with PWC, but Kati worked them diligently and communicated with me daily on the status. I’m very glad I picked Avec constructions and will gladly call them for future projects!

- Neighbor in Manasssas, VA

On time and on budget. Extremely customer focused, took the time to understand needs and requirements and worked to deliver. Would recommend without reservation!! Three months after project completed… our opinion and impression has not changed. WIth AVEC you can not go wrong!!

- Neighbor in Chantilly, VA

We received 8 estimates from contractors to build a two-level, 400 sq. ft. deck. AVEC gave us the 2nd best price and we went with them after meeting with the owner Kati and all other companies. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the results and their professionalism. Two builders worked for a week in 100 degree heat and they did an amazing job. The quality of the wood was excellent and it was easy to see they knew exactly what they were doing. Kati was there every day to inspect the progress and the yard was cleaned up every day. We will call on AVEC for any other work on the house and have already recommended them to a few friends.

- Neighbor in Herndon, VA

AVEC Constructions was very professional. They came in exactly at their estimated price. They built a replacement deck that was better than the original and they paid attention to details and kept me informed of the design decisions along the way.

- Neighbor in Reston, VA

Their proposal was very professional. They kept us informed at every step. They worked long and hard on this project. The final product was excellent. We were so pleased with them that we had them do other work (repair a fence, repair a shed) while they were here. We’re actively recommending them to friends and neighbors.

- Neighbor in Herndon, VA

They did an excellent job, had good communication, and they were very patient with us as we changed our plans several times. We couldn’t be happier with them and their service. We would definitely use them again and recommend them to family and friends.

- Neighbor in Falls Church, VA

I took the project proposal from AVEC Constructions due to the cost difference with other providers and the ratings that I saw on this website. They were really professional people and very friendly too. They finished the work on time and with my budget. They were really courteous and made sure that all my expectations were met. I would definitely recommend them for any type of work.

I’m pleased with the outcome of the fence. It was finished quickly and service was courteous. I am recommending this company to one my friends.

- Neighbor in Gainesville, VA

AVEC Construction was absolutely top-rate in the service they provided, and the quality of their work was faultless. Our new fence was erected in record time without in anyway impacting the quality of the work. It was truly a pleasure working with AVEC!
