Darrel Hamilton Builder Testimonials

Darrel Hamilton Builder has our highest and most enthusiastic recommendation for anyone who desires to have a beautiful, high-quality, custom-designed home built in the Blue Ridge Mountain region. After retiring from a career in the U.S. Marine Corps, Janice and I decided that we wanted to build our retirement home in Ashe County NC, and Darrel and Donna Hamilton expertly led us through the design and "long distance" building processes in order to make that plan become a reality. They were always immediately responsive to any of our questions or concerns, and they were very proactive in keeping us informed on all developments as our new home was being built. The workmanship on our new home is superb, and the attention to detail is exceptional in all respects. We couldn't be more pleased with the new mountain home that Darrel and Donna have built for us. Darrel and Donna always do what they say they are going to do, and it's done when they say that it will be done; they possess our absolute trust and confidence as our builder and now as our friends. We strongly recommend Darrel Hamilton Builder to anyone who seeks a highly professional and expert builder to partner with to design and build the beautiful mountain home that they have always wanted.

We just love our new Craftsman style home completed by Darrel Hamilton 8/10/2018 in Jefferson. High quality and great responsiveness are the two words that best describe our experience with Darrel. His sub-contractors are the best, and nice people to work with during the building process. Darrel and Donna were always helpful with referrals for selecting the various allowance items. Any time that we would text or call Darrel with a question or concern, he would get back to us same day. We are still friends today, which tells you something about our great custom building experience.

We want to take this opportunity to thank you for the beautiful home you have given us. It’s beyond our expectation.

Who would have thought that while we were looking for a builder in Ashe County we would find friends who were the premier home builders in the area? Well, that’s just what happened when we contacted you.

By the time our first meeting was over we knew we'd found the right man (and woman) for the job. We immediately felt relaxed and comfortable with you. As our project moved forward we came to trust and depend on you. You were always available, always gave us straight answers, and always came through for us.

As busy as you are you always made us feel as if we were your only client. Your time was our time. You responded to phone calls, emails and could make my chicken scratch on a scrap of paper in to exactly what I wanted.

Your contractors are the best at what they do. Your professionalism and integrity is reflected in the work they do for you. They all do first rate work with the care and thought of someone working on their own home.

Donna, you are the greatest. You treated me like your best friend, kept me on track and held my hand the whole way. I couldn’t have done it without you.

You are warm and friendly people, honest helpful and dependable. We are proud to say we have a Darrel Hamilton Home and best of all…we get to call you friends.

Without reservation, when building a home, it has to be…Darrel Hamilton Builder…Premiere Builder of Dreams.

They told us we were crazy, that we'd get divorced, that all sorts of dire things would happen if we tried to build "long distance."

They couldn't have been more wrong. Working on our beautiful house with you two has been one of the most pleasant, most fun experiences of our lives. Everything about the project exceeded our expectations. You were so prompt with answers to questions, so quick to let us know anything out of the ordinary, and so great to talk with. It's almost as if you saw our vision of the house through our eyes.

The workmanship is exquisite, the site was always clean, and the end product truly is my "WOW" house. We are so happy to have worked with you and get to know you both. I hope we will continue our friendship as we begin to enjoy our new home in the coming years. Thank you both so much for all the hard work and thought you put into our home, as I know you do all your houses. We were lucky you were our first contact. We hope to share it with you when we get some furniture up there, which should be in early May. Again, thanks for making this one of the most rewarding experiences of our lives.

My experience with Darrel Hamilton Builder was a very pleasant and rewarding one. When my wife and I decided to build a mountain home in Jefferson, N.C., Mr. Hamilton helped us design one of the most beautiful and efficient mountain homes in North Carolina. He was always on the job, making sure that all the fine details for our home were met to our specification and satisfaction. He is very honest. A man of integrity who stands behind his work. During the construction process, his construction crew was always friendly and respectful to both my wife and me each time we visited the worksite. All the mechanical, electrical and carpentry work was done with excellence and we are 110% satisfied with the work Mr. Hamilton has put in our home. We highly recommend him to anyone seeking to build a quality new home.

Ronald & Joyce Diggs

We worked with Darrel Hamilton Builder extensively in planning and designing our custom cabin in the mountains.

We found them to be not only extremely helpful, but very professional and willing to incorporate our unique needs and ideas.

Equally important, the construction was completed on-time and within budget.

We have been very satisfied with the quality of their work and their responsiveness to concerns and questions that arose during the construction process. They were a joy to work with.

Steve & Nancy Schanz

Cheri and I just wanted to take a moment to write a few words about our recently completed vacation home building project in Fleetwood Falls.

As you know, I was somewhat concerned about the prospect of building a new home from 700 miles away. We had always heard that building a new home was fraught with stress and heartache, and this being our first such experience; we were braced for the worst.

What a pleasant surprise we had. Not only was our home completed on time and on budget, but the entire experience from design through the final punch list was a model of efficiency and professionalism. Best of all, we truly appreciated your attention to detail and commitment to quality that is so evident in our finished product. The home has totally lived up to our expectations and we are extremely pleased in having chosen your firm to build our mountain dream home. It's really great to do business with people who you can trust to do the job right and at the same time treat you like a member of the family.

Many thanks to Darrel and Donna for a job well done!

Larry & Cherie Gouldthorpe

We would not let anyone else build a house for us but Darrel Hamilton. Darrel checked on our construction daily. If work was not done correctly, he would have them do it over again. He was quite organized and easy to work with. Our house is now one year old and we haven't had any problems.

John & Phyllis Holderby

Darrel and Donna helped us create our dream, retirement, log-home back in 2006 and have just completed a build-out of the basement this spring (2015). We consistently get comments from all visitors that it is "one of (if not, the) nicest homes in the county". We could not be more pleased with the work.

Darrel's ability as a general contractor / builder is exceptional. His planning and budgeting skills up front assured we were all on the same page. He has put together an outstanding team of subcontractors, and manages their efforts extremely well. Darrel's "creative problem solving" skills were much needed as our architectural drawings from the Log company were not correct. Darrel was able to catch the errors and make creative adjustments as needed. As Cathy and I saw opportunities to "improve" the design as the building progressed, Darrel was always flexible and able to accommodate our desires.

The result was and exceptional home that exceeded our expectations.

And, as important, the development of a now 9 year friendship between Darrel, Donna, Cathy and myself.

Highly recommend!!!

Building a home is never easy. Building a home in a state you are not even living in, is even more demanding and stressful. We contracted with Darrel Hamilton Builder to build a mountain home for us. Throughout all the phases of building our home, Darrel made sure that we were always made aware of its progress through phone calls and pictures of all major events during the building process. By providing pictures of the major construction phases and by having regular phone calls on the houses progress, Darrel was able to answer all our questions and take the stress out of building a new home. We were able to make changes during the construction and any overages to the budgeted contract was well documented and communicated. Darrel was able to provided us with a beautiful, custom built home that we love and are proud to own. If you want a great home building experience, we highly recommend Darrel Hamilton Builder.

Jack & Marcia Ambrose

We have built 6 houses and this was, by far, the best experience we ever had. Darrel Hamilton is a first rate quality builder and a man of extraordinary integrity. He went above and beyond to make sure all the details of our new home were perfect. His word is his bond and if he said something would be done we could have total faith that it would be done right and on time. We absolutely love our home and could not be happier that that we chose Darrel Hamilton to build it.
