What our clients say

  • I’m sitting here reflecting on what an awesome experience Ron and I have had in the whole process of building our dream home. We are so thankful for everything this company has done for us. Everything was handled in house from helping us find that perfect parcel of land which we now call home on Gatewood Road and even purchasing the land up front for us so that we could avoid getting a costly construction loan, to closing on our completed home. The staff at GH Watts has impeccable customer service like no other company I have ever dealt with before. In past years we have had a couple of other homes built by larger companies and these other companies have not even come close with the way they treated us and handled the entire process. I had spoken with numerous friends who have also had homes built by GH Watts and heard nothing but praise from them. Now that we are settled in our new home we take pride in showing it off to our friends and family and will continue to forever speak very highly of your company.I especially would like to thank Todd Stacy and Paul Cooper and you, Cindy. Paul took a lot of time with me in the very beginning when he helped me come up with the perfect home that fit into our budget. I am thankful to you Cindy for helping me tweak those final kitchen cabinets and having such patience with me. I was extremely impressed with Todd’s customer service and caring attitude. He truly does care about the company’s reputation. He took pride in the craftsmanship of our home. I was extremely impressed with the weekly pictures he would take for us and how he sent these pictures with a report of what was going on that week. Todd has even followed up with us after we moved into our home and I am truly impressed by this. GH Watts is very lucky to have Todd. He played a key role in the entire process and is the reason everything went so smoothly from beginning to end.Thank you for making our dreams come true!
    Ron and Adela Carter
  • My wife and I are thrilled with the house that Watts built us. The entire experience, from beginning to end, was a pleasure.Watts worked with us through the entire process, they were always available to listen to our suggestions and questions, and as a result, we have just the house we wanted. And the workmanship and dedication of Gary’s workforce shows through in the quality of the house they built us. I highly recommend anyone who is looking to build a house in this area to Watts Construction. We got the house of our dreams and at a fair price.
    Mike Galati
  • After driving around I saw a “G.H. Watts” sign at a building site and called them. Everything went so professional and easy. A dream come true.

    Peter Terczak
  • G.H. Watts is a top notch professional, along with his crew. Honest and hardworking they stand behind their work. He built our home in 2013 and we love it. Best decision we ever made having them build our dream home. We highly recommend them.

    Bobby Smith and Pamela Shelton-Smith
  • G.H. Watts came highly recommended to me when I was doing a major remodeling project in 2011. I had a very unique situation as my existing home was originally built in the 1950’s. I added on a basement and addition in 1992 as well. I wanted to do a face lift on the entire structure that would make my house look newly built instead of a house of many additions. I also had a detached garage that needed to match the “new” house.

    Not only was I having an addition added, but we were remodeling and altering all of the existing rooms except the kitchen and one bath. We stayed in the house during the entire project.

    We encountered a few “unforeseen opportunities” during this project due to the scope of what was being asked. The people at G.H. Watts were fabulous in solving all of them. The two superintendents and all of the subcontractors were very quality and customer conscious. They offered ideas and solutions for all of them and more. We felt as they had our best interest and satisfaction in mind. We know that we made the right choice when we hired G.H. Watts. No other contractor would have gone to the lengths they did to ensure we were satisfied. The quality people at G.H. Watts set them apart from any other builder. Our friends and family, as well as ourselves, can’t believe how great this turned out. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is considering to build new or remodel. I will use them again if I ever need a builder again.

    Paul and Michelle Scott
  • G.H. Watts built our house in about 6 months and kept us updated with the progress often. Someone was always available if we had questions or changes needed to be made. We moved into our new house on 3/15/2013 in King George and are still very happy with the house.

    Marie & Mac Herrera
  • As a custom home builder, Watts has to rely on their subcontractors. Having worked in Caroline for decades, we know that many of those have worked with and for Watts for many years. We were fortunate to have been able to have Watts build our custom home in the beautiful Portobago Bay subdivision. All of the workmen were courteous and it was so evident the pride that they each took in their work; the quality was top notch, Roger and I would not hesitate to give the name “Watts Construction” to anyone we know.

    Roger and Eunice Key
  • G.H. Watts constructed a 750 sq ft addition to our home. The project was managed with a great detail to the product, craftsmanship and project schedule. We were so pleased with the addition we hired them to renovate our kitchen. We are very pleased with the work and attention to detail. I would use them again.

    Mike Earl
  • Watts did an excellent job building our new home. Employees were receptive to the changes I made to the model home Mr. Arnold showed us. We needed more space because we have lots of grandchildren. They are really enjoying (during the summer) the additional space added during construction. All deadlines were met in a very professional way. We are happy with the finished look.

    Robert L and Marie B, J Peoples
  • Building an ICF home is a large task, yet your company made it a very enjoyable time for us. From planning, through construction, to finish, G.H. Watt’s Construction, to include office personnel and the window washers, were an amazing team of professionals who were squared away and operating from the same sheet of music.

    Our thanks go to Josh Watts and his concrete team, Randy the carpenter who did amazing work, Mike Perry the plumber (and Jack of all trades). Todd Stacey the solar man. Special thanks go to Paul Cooper, who handled the financial side, and to Robert Hall who was the onsite supervisor handling the finishing touches, easing our concerns covering numerous questions, suggestions and changes. A company’s number one goal in business is to earn repeat business. You may rest assured that G.H. Watts has earned that with us. We have and will continue to recommend G.H. Watts construction as the go-to company for custom or semi-custom homes to anyone seeking our opinion.

    Our house looks great and receives many compliments from friends, neighbors, and strangers that stop to comment on it or to ask questions concerning its ICF construction, solar water heater or solar panels (avg.38 kwh). We are extremely pleased and proud of our new home!

    Rich Hull
  • Building a house can be a very trying experience. However, from the word go with the sales guy thru the final walk thru with Robert it was an amazing experience. I would highly recommend GH Watts for anyone building a home. Anytime any kind of issue came up it was handled quickly.

    Scott Smith
  • We truly enjoy the house you built for us. Our home is beautiful and the quality of services you provided are excellent! Thank you so much.

    Brian & Amy Wilson
  • From beginning to end, the entire process was handled professionally, efficiently, and smoothly. We have dealt with other builders in the past, and I can honestly say that this has been the most pleasant “building” experience we have ever enjoyed.

    Patrick & Cheryl Gray
  • G. H. Watts Construction recently built our new home! We absolutely love it! From the first meeting with the Salesperson, we knew we were in good hands. Everything was thoroughly explained to us and if we had a question, it was quickly answered. The willingness to help continued through the construction process. We have received many compliments on our new home! And we would certainly suggest G. H. Watts to anyone who wants to build a new home!

    Pete & Angie Satterwhite
  • I have had the opportunity to work with G.H. Watts Construction over the past 8 years. This company has always been a pleasure to work with. They are a very reputable, honest, and respected business in this area. I enjoy the working relationship that we have maintained throughout this time. I would and have highly recommended them to family, friends, and clients who are in search of a builder.
