What our Clients say

  • I am extremely pleased with the work Forbes Custom Builders has done for me and my family. Having their assistance on the construction of our custom home in Goochland was tremendous in the overall construction work as well as in the fine detail oriented work that was necessary on many aspects of the project. Having someone who pays attention to the smallest of details was very important to us and the outcome of our home & Charlie did an excellent job with this. Charlie’s commitment to the project and his communication with us all along the way was helpful and something we really appreciated.

    After the house project, we had Charlie come back for several other jobs, and he built several out buildings on our property that were done efficiently and again with great attention to detail.

  • I have used Forbes Custom Builders on two separate construction projects, and have been thrilled with the results! Charlie’s level of subject knowledge is outstanding, and both my deck and shed were completed in a timely fashion, with the utmost professionalism, and at a fair price. I have had numerous friends and neighbors comment on what a nice job they did, particularly their attention to detail. I will definitely use them again in the future! I have recommended them to several friends so far, and would highly recommend them to everyone!
