Great Falls, Vienna and McLean Certified Luxury Builder

‟Stellar craftsmanship”

Ken Merritt has been a pleasure to work with. His knowledge and honesty were so greatly appreciated. The final product on our bathroom and kitchen was top notch with stellar craftsmanship. I would absolutely recommend Ken Merritt and his team for any project. - H.U. on Houzz

‟I loved the way they were able to advise and guide us on making our dream kitchen a reality”

★★★★★
We loved our experience with Great Falls Construction! They did an extensive remodel on our townhouse kitchen, and it looks amazing! I think you can find a lot of builders who have technical skills, but what impressed me most about Great Falls was their combination of technical skills (they were excellent) with superb aesthetic and artistic sense. They collaborated closely with us and our designer, and I loved the way they were able to advise and guide us on making our dream kitchen a reality. I’ve heard nightmare stories about contractors who fail to show up and fail to fully complete jobs, so I was very grateful to find a construction company that was honest, skillful, and communicative. Highly recommended! - zziwa on Houzz

‟managed flawlessly by a highly qualified team of professionals”

★★★★★
Post purchase of my home in 2007, Great Falls Construction(GFC) has completed several renovation projects. GFCC designed and custom engineered 4 bathrooms, the entire basement level recreation area, plus several other minor upgrades throughout our home. Each project was managed flawlessly by a highly qualified team of professionals who paid attention to every detail. - nmgrandpre on houzz

‟Our house is beautiful inside and out and the quality of the workmanship is second to none.”

★★★★★
Great Falls Construction completed a total renovation of our home in Great Falls this past summer. The project lasted nearly a year from start to finish and involved a total make-over of both the interior and exterior of the house. We could not be happier with the finished product. Our house is beautiful inside and out and the quality of the workmanship is second to none. GFCC was great to work with throughout the process from design to completion. The crew was excellent in terms of both skill level and professionalism and extremely responsive and accommodating in every way. The project wound up taking longer than expected and exceeded our original budget but that was due primarily to numerous change orders that we requested along the way. I would not hesitate to recommend GFCC to anyone considering building a new home or renovating an existing home. - Richard Z.

‟couldn't be more happy with our home or with our decision to hire GFC to build it for us!”

★★★★★
Great Falls Construction (GFC) built a fabulous custom house for us. Our experience with them from the start to the finish was outstanding. They are consummate professionals who take pride in their work, and it shows in their finished project. Their attention to detail went above and beyond. They went out of their way to deliver exactly what our architect envisioned. Because the architect was not available, they took time to visit some of his completed projects to understand exactly what they were seeing on the plans. We are enormously thankful for the suggestions they had along the way as well. For instance, they suggested that we raise the ceiling height in the basement by a foot to allow for more headroom. We went with their suggestion, and are so glad we did. It gives the space a much more open and inviting feel than it otherwise would have had. They also helped us recoup space for storage in several areas around the house that otherwise would have been closed off. There were scores of other details they helped us work through along the way, and all of them turned out great. The quality of the work is superb, and all of GFC's staff bring tremendous skill to the job. While we could comment positively on all the employees, we'll just highlight two here. The site supervisor for our house, Mike, kept tight control of every item that came into the house. He made sure that all the work was done right and on time. His supervision and attention to detail gave us the peace of mind to know that our house was being built to last. Also of special note is one of their master carpenters, Edgar. He is a highly skilled craftsman. Among other things, he outfitted the two story library with built-in bookcases, wood paneling, angled ceiling beams, and a stunning fireplace surround (pictured). We've been living in the house for several months now, and couldn't be more happy with it or with our decision to hire GFC to build it for us! If you're looking for a construction company to build your house in the Northern Virginia area, we highly recommend them! - Janna Hattaway

‟They are at the top of their game.”

★★★★★
I am a high end interior designer who has worked on many large home construction and renovation projects with Great Falls Construction. The projects have been several years long. I am intimately familiar with all aspects of GFC. They are at the top of their game. They are excellent in all regards. The quality of their work, their communication, their flexibility and reliability is stellar! They are always available after the completion of a project. They establish a life long relationship with their clients. I could not recommend them more highly! - Ann Kenkel, Designer

‟Recommend them without reservation to anyone”

★★★★★
After interviewing seven different builders, we chose to work with Great Falls Construction for our custom home build based on their strong organizational skills and the obvious pride they take in their work. We were not disappointed, they did a truly outstanding job on our project! We began working with Great Falls Construction during the architecture phase of our project. They made some great suggestions to improve the floor plan of the property, including adding a second bathroom on the main level, adding an upstairs laundry room, and putting a bathroom in the pool house. Great Falls Construction managed all aspects of the construction phase of our project. Their model of staffing a project manager and superintendent on each project really helped things flow more smoothly. All of the Great Falls Construction employees are top notch. Their subcontractors did a great job as well. Great Falls Construction did an excellent job resolving any issues that came up with the project quickly and fairly. It was obvious throughout construction that they take pride in their work and that they want their clients to be happy. We almost had to force them to leave at the end of the project because they wanted to stick around and make sure every detail was perfect. They have been easy to reach and very responsive during the warranty period for the project. They come out quickly to fix any issues that we report and the warranty work is always high quality. Fortunately, we haven't had many warranty issues, since the initial work they did was high quality. Overall, we are extremely happy with our new home. Great Falls Construction did outstanding work throughout the project and we would recommend them without reservation to anyone looking to build a new home or renovate an existing home. - Jon Schlegel

‟Choosing a builder is undoubtedly a daunting task, especially considering the massive investment...”

★★★★★
Thinking of building a custom home in Northern Virginia? Think Great Falls Construction! We vetted several builders of custom homes (one-of-a-kind homes designed from scratch), gathered input from architects, and decided to build our 9,000SF custom home in Fairfax using Great Falls Construction. Choosing a builder is undoubtedly a daunting task, especially considering the massive investment and that you’ll be married to the builder for perhaps a year or so, but having seen our house come alive through the vigilant efforts of Great Falls Construction, we would pick them again. With our collective experiences in law, engineering, teaching, and the military, we were likely one of our builder’s toughest clients, but Great Falls Construction worked hand-in-hand with us to produce the home of our dreams. Take a step in the right direction, contact Great Falls Construction. - Steve & Michele B. on houzz

The people there are terrific

★★★★★
Great Falls Construction built my home over 15 years ago - and they continue to help me maintain it and improve on it today. I can't think of any other "service providers" that have given me this level of commitment over such an extended period of time. The people there are terrific. A+ all the way.

‟We've been very happy ... and appreciate the quality of work”

★★★★★
We hired Ken at Great Falls Construction to remodel two upstairs bathrooms. We reclaimed unused space out of the attic/roof line and were able to expand the bathrooms significantly. We added a washer and dryer to one of the bathrooms. We've been very happy with the remodeled bathrooms and appreciate the quality of work. - Hugo on Google

‟the results are truly amazing”

★★★★★
I give Great Falls Construction and its owner, Ken Merritt, my highest recommendation. Ken is a true craftsman with deep knowledge about any and every type of construction project you may need for your home. I first hired them for an extensive basement and home remodel. Their top-notch work added tremendous value and livability to our home. They removed and relocated walls to provide space for a large antique pool table, reconfigured the space to add two lower level bedrooms, installed a beautiful full bathroom, and added significant artistic elements including tile and stone work that really made the space special. I next worked with them on a kitchen remodel, which significantly upgraded and transformed the space and was completed ahead of schedule. They later also reconfigured my office space in Washington, D.C. transforming a bland space into an attractive and useful area with built-in wood shelves and cabinets. I have also seen examples of Ken's work on large scale home construction projects and the results are truly amazing. Ken and Great Falls Construction are perfect for any medium to large bespoke construction project. Ken also happens to be one of the nicest people you could meet and is a pleasure to work with. I recommend them without reservation. - Charley Kimmett

‟Thorough attention to details that delivers a beautiful happy ending.”

★★★★★
GFC did a beautiful addition to my client's home. I have seen their work in another customer's home too. Thorough attention to details that delivers a beautiful happy ending. Clients are very pleased.

‟professional, considerate, well-mannered, and always conscientious ... their finished product reflects the pride they have in their work.”

★★★★★
Great Falls Construction completed several upgrades to our home which included a full renovation of the master bathroom; new floor tile in the first floor powder room; new lighting in 3 bedrooms and the kitchen; and painting the upstairs hallway, the guest bedroom and guest bathroom. I was not always on site during the work but the Great Falls field supervision took personal care of my home at all times. They were professional, considerate, well-mannered, and always conscientious of the work space and took care to protect the flooring, walls, etc. The subcontractors were top quality and their finished product reflects the pride they have in their work. The work area was always clean and tidy at the end of the day. I love my new master bathroom and all the upgrades in all the rooms! I strongly recommend Great Fall Construction for any upgrade or renovation to your home.
