"They have always done a great job, just fabulous! They do what they say they will do when they say they will do it, clean, and you would never know someone was there. They are also an aging-in-place specialist. They completed a kitchen remodel for my mother and while it was not aging-in-place, they were great with taking care of her during the entire process. I just can't say enough good things about them, great customer service! Honor and integrity." - Cindy in Leesburg, 2012

"Grab bars in 3 bathrooms, extra stair rail on main stairs, extra stair rail in the basement, installed a pole in the bedroom for support, and repaired drywall. Excellent work. Very professional. Arrived on time and completed before leaving. No complaints. " - Anna in Chantilly, 2012

"Schaffer Construction, LLC changed our standard shower to a curbless shower and installed PT rails by the toilets. Tony came to the house and explained the process needed to modify the bathroom. He gave a estimate and told us who would be working with him and how long the process would take and when they would begin. They cleaned up the work area every day and were unobtrusive while working. I have recommended these service to others!" - Bobbie in Ashburn, 2012

"Tony Schaffer was outstanding. He spent time talking to my 90 year old Mother about the safety issues in her home and made recommendations on how to improve her day to day living. All the work Tony performed was excellent but I was most impressed with Tony as a compassionate, caring human being." - Dan in Vienna, 2012

"We have been working with Schaffer Company for over a year now, following the serious health decline of my husband and the need for extensive modifications to our new home to accommodate his handicaps. Tony Schaffer has been marvelous throughout the entire process. His work is not the least expensive you will find, but it is worth every penny because the results are both practical and aesthetically pleasing. Tony and his team installed a series of grab bars throughout our home (including state-of-the-art pull-down bars over the master bathroom commode), and all are solid and attractive. He next put in an efficient and attractive stair lift, and managed to solve the problem of a narrow hallway at the foot of the stairs by changing the door on the adjoining linen closet, to allow the lift to function without drastically altering the appearance of the hall. Another project involved building an extension from the garage entry to the house that allows a ramp to accommodate my husband’s wheelchair. The most extensive interior work was the renovation of the master bathroom. A glass shower with a raised step-in was replaced with an entirely new wheel-in shower with a beautiful tile floor and a reworking of the tiled walls. The toilet enclosure walls were changed so that the bathroom is an open space, yet the area remains defined thanks to the retention of part of the upper wall surrounding the toilet. The master sink area cabinets were adapted so that a wheelchair can slide underneath. The resulting work in the bathroom have been favorably reviewed by everyone who sees and to comment on how much more beautiful, and still useful for handicap needs, is the resulting modifications. In short, we ended up with a fully functioning handicapped accessible bathroom that was, at the same time, both aesthetically pleasing and finished to the highest qualitative level. Finally, the most recent project was the renovation of the back patio and front walkway/entry way to the house. The original concrete was replaced with elegant blue slate, and all steps removed so that both areas are completely wheelchair accessible. Again, full attention was paid to ADA requirements but, equally importantly, the finish and quality of the work was excellent, resulting in a significant addition to the look and value of our home. In all of their work with us, Tony has been attentive and completely understanding of the handicap needs of my husband, so much so that we feel his work has added to the quality of my husband’s life. The high caliber of his professionalism has made all our dealings a positive experience. He and his wife Becky have been wonderful to deal with. We truly have felt fortunate to work with the Schaffers and their company, and would highly recommend them to anyone. " - J.G., Ashburn, 2012

"Schaffer Construction specializes in modifications to assist the disabled and elderly and they are fantastic in being able to come up with solutions, and implementing them, for people, who for the most part, are struggling with what works and doesn't work. They installed a stair lift and grab bars. From the first call, we knew that we had help. Very responsive to our needs, showed up on time, and the quality of the work was first rate. More importantly, their experience in helping the disabled means that you have a real resource in working through the various issues you encounter. Would wholeheartedly recommend them." - John in Ashburn, 2012

"Installed a ramp in our garage, put grab-bars in 2 bathrooms, made recommendations to make home handicapped accessible. Excellent suggestions. Tony & Becky personable & helpful.

"Tony Schaffer provided outstanding consultant services to make my home handicap friendly and safe for a senior with limited capabilities. IE: Grab Bars and Power Chair Ramp. Recognizing the immediate need, the work was scheduled, and completed professionally, in a very timely manner. I would recommend Schaffer Construction without question for any task they take on for quality and understanding of requirements. Hope the commentary will be sufficient to tell the story of an outstanding organization." - Sam in McLean, 2012

"Tony came exactly at 5 p.m. about a day after I called. He accepted my instructions about placement of the two grab bars and I am extremely happy.. His work was impeccable, with no debris left behind, and the bars are very secure. He also advised me on a possible leak in the corner of the ceiling above the tub." - Alice in Reston, 2012

"I needed general maintenance done on my chair. I called and was given Schaffer Construction's name to contact. I spoke to Tony Schaffer who came out the same day I called. He arrived on time and was very informative and completed his maintenance quickly. He was very informative and cooperative. I recommend him highly." - S.R., February 2012

"Every time we use our new bathrooms I think that we need to let you know how happy we are with the work you did. I can't believe the difference in the master bath. It is a very functional, attractive space now. Thank you for not letting me just toss out the over the toilet cabinet - moving it up and integrating it into the existing molding made all the difference in the world visually; and having that extra storage in the bathroom is essential! Even though we didn't get the "shower wall" we wanted, the fixture you provided with the shower massage features makes up for it at a MUCH lower cost. Many thanks to you for all your hard work and for putting up with us as first time remodelers!" - C.B.

"Schaffer construction did a great job of rebuilding our 60 year old kitchen. We appreciated the responsiveness by Tony and Dana on our questions and changes during the construction process.

We found that Schaffer Construction was reliable and they addressed all of our concerns. We highly recommend Schaffer Construction if you are thinking of remodeling your kitchen. We will let Tony know when we decide to reconstruct our 60 year old bathrooms."    - R.M.

"This letter is to tell you and Becky how happy we are with our newly remodeled kitchen.

We have used Schaffer Construction for other projects in the house -- crown molding, two bathroom vanities, French doors in the family room and windows, and always been pleased with all the jobs you have done. The kitchen remodel outweighs all the other work combined. We enjoy using the kitchen more each day.

Becky was so patient with us and our modifications and changes and you kept to schedule with each phase of the project. I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone needing work done on their house.

We look forward to working with both of you again for several other jobs which we still need done."    - M.Y. Cox

"We contracted Schaffer Construction for our kitchen and family room remodel, and we couldn't be more pleased with the results. Tony and Becky were a pleasure to work with, and their professionalism extended to the entire crew. They began the process with a thorough and fair estimate, and followed through with excellent workmanship, to complete our job on-time. We especially appreciated the grace and flexibility with which they dealt with the inevitable change requests. They are very client oriented and their eye for detail sets them apart from the average contractor. We recommend Schaffer Construction to our friends and to anyone who is planning renovations for their professionalism, integrity, and quality work."    - D.R. Williamson

"Dear Becky & Tony,

We just wanted to take a moment to let you know how pleased we’ve been with the work you have done for us.

Like many people, we were concerned about how to find a good home improvement contractor. Everyone hears horror stories about contractors and since you’re letting someone into your home it is very important to find the right contractor. We wondered if we could really find a good home improvement contractor.

We couldn’t be happier with the service that Schaffer Construction has provided for our family. Not only were the final projects even better than we anticipated, but all interactions with your firm have been of the highest level of professionalism and integrity. Why are we so pleased?

1. Creative, cost effective solutions
2. Always did what you said you would when you said you would
3. Amazingly minimal disruption during construction – we were able to come home every night and use our kitchen while you were replacing/repairing our ceiling!
4. Work was of the highest quality

We were so pleased to hear that Schaffer Construction is now specializing in “aging in place” renovations -- we can’t think of a firm better qualified to provide these services. We say this after experiencing not only the work you have done for us, but the kitchen renovation done for my elderly mother. The care and concern you bring to every job is what sets Schaffer Construction apart from the competition."     - C. & B. Boyce

"Tony and his crew of specialists did a superb job on my kitchen/family room renovations. They were always prompt, courteous, neat, and helpful. When options or alternatives existed, Tony explained the costs/benefits of each alternative and offered helpful insights into the renovation process. In the end, we were enormously pleased with Tony's work. I recommend Schaffer Construction without reservation!"    - E. Geiser"
