5.0 Ben B. Alexandria, VA

Evan and his team did an incredible job fixing a water issue we had for nearly 10 years in our Alexandria Verizon Retail location. They could not have been more professional and efficient. We will continue to use them in our stores across VA. Their ability to take care of a large commercial job at a fair price makes them out go to drainage and water guys.

We initially hired Clifton Contracting in 2018 for a major renovation of the interior of our home (new kitchen, one new and three renovated bathrooms), which included taking out walls and reworking the space. We were very pleased with the work and then hired the company's waterproofing division to install an outdoor drainage system and waterproof the basement. In 2019, the company built a porch and patio around the pool, which turned out beautifully. In 2021, Clifton Contracting completed a basement renovation, We keep coming back. The owner, Chris Sodergren, has great ideas and great taste. His crew is first-class -- very talented and friendly -- and I highly recommend the company. Great value for the money!

5.0 Kalpana B. Pasadena, MD

The job was done exactly as I had expected and in record time. Chris is one of the few contractors whom I respect for taking a project personally and completing it like it was his own house. Most important are his reasonable pricing and work done in record time. We hired him to install a sliding door which required breaking down a concrete basement wall. It was done with utmost care with a supporting beam installed, all done in one day. He took another day to install a complete deck around the door. Looks awesome.

5.0 Brian C. Ashburn, VA

They were not the cheapest, but they were competitive and I believe I got better value for my money. Dave Robey was my salesman and he was a very nice guy, always responded quickly to my emails and texts at pretty much anytime of day. Being an engineer, I naturally had a few detailed questions that he could not answer, so he had the boss man come by and I was very pleased with the detailed explanations. I was nervous about the whole thing, cutting this big hole in a perfectly good concrete wall and all, but they had detailed answers to my various questions and it put me mostly at ease. The work started about a week after I got approval from my homeowners association. They arrived on-time and worked to pretty late in the day. They obviously cared about what they were doing and strove to do it well. As they went about it, I got more and more comfortable with it and believing that nothing was going to get "messed up". The people working the job were all very nice guys and worked hard. I had a finished basement, so this was being cut into a wall with wallboard and such. They did the whole installation and left it with zero mess inside and outside the house. The concrete cuts were smooth and very well done. He was very careful using the mini backhoe for the excavation and pulling that wall segment out. The 4'x5' window is fantastic looking, lets in a ton of light, and definitely made the room tremendously more cheerful. It is now 4 months later and we have had zero issues. We also had a very heavy rain due to remnants of a hurricane getting to us and we had zero water issues. They had tied down into the foundation drain and it all worked great. So, I would definitely recommend these people to anyone. They know what they are doing, they use their own full time employees, they have the insurance and workman's comp, etc. And they do great work and they communicate with you as much as you want/need them to.

5.0 Ryan D. Fairfax, VA

They were extremely professional and did a great job. I could not expect better.

5.0 Clarence T. Falls Church, VA

For the scope of work performed, the price was very reasonable (less than I had expected). They also gave me a discount for prior Military service. Excellent crew.

5.0 Sandra L. Alexandria, VA

We initially hired Clifton Contracting for a major interior renovation, which we were thrilled with. Chris has great design ideas and a very qualified team of employees. Once the renovations were complete, we hired the company to fix a drainage issue in the backyard, waterproof the basement, and build a back porch. Clifton Contracting provides high quality work for a fair price.

5.0 Samantha B. Manassas, VA

Chris and his team worked quickly and efficiently. Chris responded to texts and phone calls quickly and answered any questions I had.

4.5 Adam L. Los Angeles, CA

High-quality work at a good value. Chris and his crew, in particular Julio, were great to work with. Very detail-oriented, honest and polite. They remodeled our basement, stairwell and a portion of our main floor according to a complicated modern design, provided by an independent architect. They needed to make a few material modifications to the design when work was underway, and their solutions met our functional and aesthetic objectives well. The window well installation was a small portion of the overall work, but it was executed perfectly. We would gladly recommend Clifton for such work and engage them again if the need arises. In part because of the complexity of our renovation and in part because Chris had taken on several projects at once, our job took longer than we had originally agreed. That is the only negative we had from the experience, and we feel that such a situation could be addressed by tighter time management.
