Whole Home Renovation Experts

For over 25 years we’ve helped families in Central Virginia live better in the home they love through whole-home renovations, additions and new construction.

“We would absolutely recommend James River Construction for any of your renovation needs. JRC recently completed a 7 month renovation of our home, and we are extremely pleased with the results and our overall experience. Through careful and thoughtful planning, they turned what could have potentially been a nightmare – living in a home under renovation with two small children – into a manageable process. Ken, Adam, Steve and the rest of the team were professional, trustworthy and responsive every step of the way. Thank you JRC, for our beautiful renovation!”
