John Chandler, a Class A General Contractor and graduate of Randolph-Macon College, founded Chandler Construction in 2013. Starting in a local lumber yard in 2005, John began in the construction industry by providing some of the Richmond area’s most notable builders with their lumber and building materials. Combining this foundation with onsite construction management in working for a local developer, John brings a unique background and skillset to the forefront when working with clients.
We believe that listening closely to client needs first allows us to deliver on the promise that each project is as unique as the client can imagine or demand, regardless of size or budget. Our step by step process in working with our clients on developing the project up front ensures we will capture all your goals, wants, needs and desires.
John Chandler works hard on behalf of his clients, whatever size the project, to get the design and execution of his construction projects right. He has a great eye for detail and that shows in all of Chandler Construction's finished works. As an architect, I appreciate the fact that he is always looking for the best means to solve any issue that arises, not just the easiest solution. His attention to details and desire to stay on schedule is top notch.
John was almost done building a home for sale when we met him, and other than some final touches, almost all of the selections had been made, but we would not have changed a thing! He has excellent taste, and did an amazing job of blending modern, classic and almost vintage elements together naturally, and beautifully. He did an excellent job of managing our expectations for completion timing, he communicated priorities and decision timelines clearly, and he gave his opinion while making those suggestions thoughtfully. He is very responsive, enjoyable to work with, and most importantly, he wants his clients to have an incomparable experience and be thrilled with their home!
We worked with John on a large-scale project to renovate an older home and put on an addition. With as many details there were, he was always available to communicate at any time of the day. He regularly provided updates on the status of the project and made sure every detail was the highest quality. We really enjoyed working with John and his team. We love our new home!
I've had my homes renovated or remodeled five times and John helped me with my last one. John is a good communicator and kept me abreast with the construction work and time frames, any price changes or savings and design suggestions. The renovations and remodeling involved with our project were somewhat complicated, but they turned out beautiful, on budget and in the time frame he had predicted. John was a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to have him build us a new home!
John is prompt, ever ready with good advice and suggestions, and an absolute pleasure to work with. The home itself is solid, well-built and boasts thoughtful details and touches throughout. I would work with John again in a heartbeat and have successfully referred him many times.
John was great to work with from the planning process, to coordinating subs, to completing the project and dealing with the punch-list! He is trustworthy and aims to do it - or make it - right!! I would highly recommend Chandler Construction for projects big and small.
John Chandler came highly recommended to us by a trusted, knowledgeable source. He surpassed our greatest expectations. Not only is the quality of his work exceptional, but he was always available to answer questions and respond to concerns, regardless of how small. He chose his subcontractors because of their collective commitment to quality construction, working as if our home were theirs. We started out with John as our contractor, but, ended up with him as a friend as well. What more can be said?!
John Chandler was professional from start to finish. He did an amazing job overseeing our huge kitchen renovation. John was always available to answer any questions and was quick to suggest good and practical ideas. John continuously worked with us regarding budget issues and deadlines to avoid any surprises. He works with reliable and hardworking companies and individuals, who all brought their best every day. It could have not been a better experience!
