It was a wonderful experience from the initial contact to the final inspection! 4.5 out of 5 stars Allen T – May 21, 2018

Communication, professionalism and attention to detail was top notch. If you want the job done right, Lensis far and away is the choice. 5.0 out of 5 stars Brad & Beth M – May 10, 2018

The work was excellent. The workers and supervisors were very friendly and cooperative. The planning and craftsmanship were excellent and we are very happy with the results. Feel free to use these comments. There were a couple of times where we could have improved communication about schedule. Part of that may have been that Beth and I are generally at work during the day, but you might consider reinstituting the tracking web site that was used in a previous project. 5.0 out of 5 stars Joyce D – February 28, 2018

Lensis Builders would be my first choice for any future home improvement project. Joyce Donohue 5.0 out of 5 stars Pat S – February 27, 2018

I am completely satisfied with the garage. It was a great experience working with Lensis Builders. The garage gave me the extra space I needed to house the contents of my attic as well as additional space for my potting bench plus protection for my vehicle. 5.0 out of 5 stars Barry M – February 6, 2018


Flawless experience from beginning to end. Can’t wait to use them again for our future kitchen remodel! 5.0 out of 5 stars Kevin B – January 29, 2018

The team from Lensis Builders really delivers on a project. We couldn’t be more happy with the entire process. They worked with us on a design, then handled all the permits, and delivered exactly what we expected. Every person we met with was professional, true to their word, and committed to the project being on time and on budget. There are a lot of builders and re-modelers who promise the world and don’t deliver. You won’t find that to be the case with Lensis Builders. We are already working on another idea for the house and I am 100% confident we will use Lensis for this project too. 5.0 out of 5 stars Ruben C – February 7, 2018 5.0 out of 5 stars Robert V – February 6, 2018 4.5 out of 5 stars Paul E – January 27, 2018 5.0 out of 5 stars Donna D – January 26, 2018 5.0 out of 5 stars Pam H – January 26, 2018 5.0 out of 5 stars Fred W – January 26, 2018

“Rich, Stacy and the Lensis Builders Team;

To the entire team at Lensis – you started out as building contractors and you became friends, well, maybe more like family.You designed our addition and built it; you remodeled our basement, kitchen and the shower in the master bath and repainted the bedrooms and put new siding on the entire house. Throughout the entire process your crews were on time, courteous and pleasant to have around. I want to mention three in particular John, Joe and Kenny, they were with us from start to finish and they just don’t come any better, a special thanks to each of them. In the office, I dealt primarily with Stacy and Cindy who were both saints for putting up with me—thank you ladies for your kindness and understanding and your help. Stacy special thanks for assistance to Alice with colors.

Don’t get too complacent though, remember we still have the living room to do as soon as Alice catches her breath!”
G.M., Fairfax Station

“It was a pleasure to deal with all of the employees, especially Kenny, who performed the work in an expert and professional manner. Although it can be disruptive to live in a house that is having a renovation done, Lensis did the work with minimal disruption and left the work area neat and clean at the end of each work day. I could not be more pleased with my kitchen. They did a beautiful job.”
H.T., Reston

“We want to thank you for the terrific work you and your exceptional team provided, We love our new kitchen, office and mud room! Lensis is in a class by itself!”
S.B., Centreville

“I just wanted to thank you personally for holding my hand and making me happy. I personally will recommend you to everyone I know.”
G.B., Fairfax

“We have been extremely happy with our remodel. The handicap bars actually look like towel bars – very attractive. The space and design work beautifully.”

“The subs that came in on the job were all excellent. The carpenter, John, was a magnificent craftsman. We appreciate the details of his work every day we use our bath and closet area.”
K.M., Haymarket

“It was a great pleasure working with you and your carpenters. We have, and will continue to recommend your company in the future to all of our friends and neighbors for their construction needs. You and your employees have really made this project a positive experience.”
T.R., Haymarket

“Richard Lensis worked with us through several stages of planning and design, was willing to help us modify our budget to fit our needs, and he, his wife, and staff were all very responsive throughout the process. They got started right on time at the end of June, and finished up right on schedule: in time for me to go back to school (I’m a teacher). Every step of the way, they did beautiful, professional work. The payment schedule was very reasonable, and made planning simple. They were happy to let us handle demolition and painting to save money, and there were no surprises at any stage of the project. They even hung the cabinets I refinished from the kitchen in the addition. Richard was also able to put us in contact with a great HVAC company to handle our new furnace and central air unit.”
“I remember coming home to installed cabinets one day and telling the workmen, “Oh… you are just my favorite people today!” I absolutely love my new kitchen…the remodel has made the ENTIRE first floor more functional.”
K.A., Manassas

“We really enjoyed working with you this past year. We are very pleased with everything and will pass your name on to any potential customers.”
C.G., Fairfax Station

“Here we are, all done! We very much appreciate your patience in the beginning — all the drawings! And the excellent staff and subs made this project as smooth as an addition could ever be, I suspect. We are thrilled with the result and pleased to have had your company be our contractor.”
J.S., Oakton

“Your work is super in all aspects — all my expectations were met and actually exceeded. I would highly recommend you to anyone.”
A.L., Clifton

“I am extremely pleased with all of the work that was done by Richard and the Lensis team while remodeling my kitchen. Richard came out to my house several times to discuss floor plans and specifications. The project arrangements were handled very efficiently, and my new kitchen is beautiful! I will always recommend you to anyone.”
L.S., Centreville

Hi, Laura,

Yes, indeed, it all looks terrific. I am very pleased and I’m sure Ellen will be, too. Could you do me a favor and thank everyone again for us. They all worked hard and worked smart. Skilled professionals, all. And, of course, thanks to you and the Lensis’ as well. Great planning, great scheduling, great products. It all came together perfectly.

You might want to mail us some of your business cards. We have plenty of people that will be interested in utilizing your services. The Shavers might be return customers, too. Ellen is smirking at my bathroom.


Kitchen Remodeling Client Testimonial:

I am so excited about our new kitchen! It turned out to be exactly what I had envisioned-warm and welcoming but still exquisite with lots of bells and whistles. We actually had three different designers come up with a plan. All were nice, but this design really popped out, addressing a few problem areas in our previous kitchen layout that I wanted to change-location of the major appliances, comfortable work space and a balanced, sophisticated look while maintaining the traditional feel of our house, not a transplanted showroom. The Lensis Builders team took extraordinary steps to meet our needs from start to finish. Measurements were checked and re-checked, cabinets were ordered and received along with floor tiles and appliances before any demolition began in order to minimize construction time. Minor issues such as missing molding pieces were dealt with swiftly and efficiently. The most impressive thing, though, was the personal service we received. The kitchen designer, Stacy Lensis, accompanied me to the tile store, twice, to assist with floor and backsplash selections. She accompanied me to the lighting store to look at the chandeliers and pendants, to see what I liked. She came with me twice to look at and choose the granite. All our questions and concerns were addressed immediately. These things were above what we expected, but it was the type of service that made us feel like our kitchen was as important to our contractor as it was to us. We had heard so many horror stories of people remodeling their kitchen, but our experience was all positive. And the result speaks for itself!
