What Our Clients Have To Say

Brent has really high quality standards. I was impressed throughout the build at his eye for detail, design and ability to combine his construction and design skills. He is an excellent communicator which is so important during a build. The house was finished within a very reasonable timeframe and on budget.

Thank you so much for your beautiful work on our bathroom. You were a pleasure to work with and I was very fortunate to have found a contractor who is conscientious and pays close attention to detail.

We recently completed a design/build project, using Brent Adams of Adams DesignBuild. We could not be happier with the finished result, or the entire process! From the first meeting we had with Brent, his manner, and knowledge of the building process gave us great confidence in his ability.
Prior to making the selection of Brent’s company, we looked at 2 of his other projects in Winston Salem, and talked to the homeowners. Everyone was very complimentary, and sang his praises! Beautiful work!
Brent helped us to pull our vision and plans together. He kept the project on time and on cost, and was a pleasure to work with. We are thrilled with the outcome, and definitely will use him on our next project.
— Steve Huntley

We worked with Adams DesignBuild on a residential renovation project in the Ardmore Area of Winston Salem in early 2015. From beginning to end, they were excellent. They worked closely with us, were responsive to all correspondence and kept us informed on the progress of our renovation. They accommodated our time line with superb planning and exceeded our expectations with their attention to detail and execution of the project. Their professionalism and superior customer service demonstrate their high standards and commitment to excellence. What a breath of fresh air to work with! As we look towards future projects, we will be calling Adams DesignBuild again.

We engaged Adams DesignBuild to remodel our master bath/closet/bedroom and add a home office. In addition we had Brent remodel our front porch entry. Could not be happier with the results in every aspect of the project. Great quality and responsiveness and a great group of subs. But perhaps the most valued part of working with Brent and Garland is their complete respect for the space we live in and minimizing the disruption of daily life as the project played out. We have worked with quite a few others over the years and have never found this degree of accommodation. Truly a great experience.

Adams DesignBuild completed a total kitchen renovation for me, and I cannot say enough about their high quality work. Their craftsmanship was impeccable. Furthermore, they were most collaborative in helping me realize my vision. Brent is one of the best finish carpenters in the business.

I highly recommend Adams DesignBuild.

My wife and I worked with ADAMS DesignBuild on a custom home from 2013-2014. From the very beginning, Brent and Garland were great to work with. They are ethical, thorough, and easy to communicate with. The project was broken out in great detail up front and Garland provided complete records/invoices from start to finish.

Brent was on site almost everyday and takes a real ownership of the project. He was a wonderful resource for any design changes we needed to make, and for coming up with new ideas as the construction progressed.

We are extremely happy with our new home and would absolutely work with Brent and Garland in the future. I have recommended them to my family and they were very happy with their completed projects as well.

Brent and Garland built a new home for us in Mill House Place that was completed in 2012. From start to finish, they were easy to work with. They provided a realistic timeline and remained on track throughout the building process, were fair in pricing their work and never cut corners, always took time to talk with us about products that could be used in building our home, and were very knowledgeable about every aspect of the construction process. An added bonus is that both Brent and Garland are accomplished craftsmen and expect the best from subcontractors. In fact, Brent is an amazing talent. He designed and built the library in our home and added numerous personal touches throughout. Our family and friends have been extremely impressed with the quality and creativity apparent in Brent’s design and finish work—he far surpassed our expectations. Finally, both Brent and Garland are easy to talk to and have high ethical standards—a very special company!

Before we built our home, we talked with many people about their experiences with builders, finally deciding to talk with three builders. We had detailed plans and specs by this time.

At the interviews, one builder brought a thick photo album, one brought models of building features, and Garland Adams brought a yellow pad to take notes on. Garland came to listen to our needs and wants, ask questions, and it showed.

Throughout the construction project, Garland carefully scheduled the work to obtain the best quality subcontractors and the finished product clearly shows the value of that. He was very responsive to requested changes, patient, easy to work with, and a good communicator. Over an 18 month project and never a cross word was exchanged. Amazing! We felt the quality of work and the relationship was so good that, years later, someone would want to know who built the house, so we installed a plaque on our home identifying Garland Adams as the builder. We still have a warm personal and professional relationship with him that comes from respect.

Just want you to know I couldn’t be more pleased as to how my deck and screened porch turned out. I just love it! When I show it to friends, they are “really impressed”. Job well done.
— Elaine Fisher

In 2010 we bought a home from Adams Design Build, Inc. after looking in the local market for some 5- 6 months. The decision to purchase this new home from Garland and Brent Adams was due to a number of important factors for us; the quality of materials and construction used throughout the home, the unique design features, their great attention of details everywhere (inside and out), and just as importantly, their professional approach and desire to make sure we were happy and satisfied with every aspect of our home. We have been in our home on Della Crescent Way for 4 years and we are just as satisfied today as when we made our purchase in 2010!!
