I decided to update the kitchen and master bedroom of my house. I contacted a friend, a contractor that does outstanding work. He was in the middle of three other projects and could not take on any more work. He referred me to Alan and Brenda. He said he had hired Alan to do a couple of finish up jobs and he does excellent work. Then I was told, "whatever contractor you choose, make sure you hire Brenda to design the kitchen."
My friend's advice was spot on.
I had a difficult time deciding on some of the tile and color combinations for the bathroom. I really needed someone patient and helpful to guide me through the process. Both Alan and Brenda brought me several different samples of tile and paired them together for me. Construction and remodeling can be stressful period. At times you may feel like you are going to lose your mind. You need a contractor that is part psychologist. The neighbors are going to be subjected to a lot of activity, traffic and noise. You need a contractor that is part ambassador. You need a contractor that is not afraid of a client's crazy idea and can make it happen, such as hiding the toiled tank in the wall.
My project turned out perfect. I highly recommend Alan and Brenda at Arlington Custom Builders.

In 2013, I contracted with Alan Anderson of Arlington Custom Builders, Inc., to build a 2,000 square foot house on property I owned in Peoria, AZ. He came highly recommended to me. I was impressed with him and his thoroughness at our first meeting. I subsequently met with him to go over specific details I wanted in the house. He brought his wife, Brenda Southard, to that meeting. Alan explained that Brenda could help choose cabinets, kitchen and bath countertops, and other interior items for my house when we were ready to do those. I had made a rough draft of my wish list and discussed details with them. Since I am not very artistic, I doubted whether they could fully understand my vision and scribbles. I was very pleasantly surprised when they later returned with plans by a draftsman. Not only did these plans incorporate everything I wanted, they improved on various areas to make larger closets, bathrooms, laundry room and other areas. Construction began in early 2014.
Later, I met with Brenda at her showroom/office to pick out countertops, cabinets, and other necessities. She had a large selection, with many different choices. I could never have decided without her help and advice. She had so much knowledge about how the fixtures would blend with other pieces. The finished result was far more impressive than I had originally imagined.
Alan was at the site during most of the construction, taking charge of it all very effectively. Most of his subcontractors have worked with him for years, and were very efficient in building the structure. When time came to put in cabinets, countertops, fixtures, etc., the ones I chose with Brenda's help were installed. I was overwhelmed with how beautiful it all looked. Everything fit perfectly. I was very impressed with the way Alan and Brenda work so well together and complimented each other.
I have been in my house over three years now, and I still marvel at how much I love it.

When it’s time to remodel your home, you want it done competently, on time and at the right price. While this may sound easy enough, it can be much harder than you think. Arlington Custom Builders and owner, Alan Anderson were the right people for our job. We wanted to do a significant remodel of our home. The project scope included gutting 2 bathrooms and a complete re-design of the master bath and closet configuration. In addition, we replaced all of the flooring and some of our kitchen cabinets. Right off the bat, Alan was flexible. He allowed us to dream and request every feature. Then as we made adjustments to fit our budget, Alan made a clear effort to help us balance our plan against our pocketbook. Despite the fact that it was more work for his team, Alan accommodated our desire to move to a different section of our home while they worked. The extent of our changes required Alan to bring a variety of craftsmen to handle various components of the job. Everyone that Alan brought into our home was courteous, responsive, competent and pleasant. Like us, Alan paid attention to the details of the work. If we weren’t 100% satisfied, Alan made it right. I would highly recommend Arlington Custom Builders.

We had Arlington builders do our remodel a couple of years ago and were very pleased with the handling of all the various sub contractors that Alan uses. We had a total kitchen remodel with two partial bathrooms as well as some remodeling on our family room area, specially fireplace mantel and wall nitches and cabinets installed. All of the workers were very pleasant and helpful and cleaned up after each phase which was really helpful as we were living through this remodel. Alan has some great resources and ideas and we worked with him and a designer to come up with a plan and it turned out great. We love all that was done and used his painter who was fabulous on repainting most of the house inside. Alan’s work ethics and pleasant nature added to the experience. It was a pleasure working with him.

I am happy to recommend Alan Anderson and his team at Arlington Construction. The addition and remodel that Arlington did for me was done with high quality. The design and workmanship were first rate, his crew was professional and the job was finished on time. I’ve heard so many horror stories of remodeling jobs – not mine — working with Arlington was a pleasure.

We have employed the services of Arlington Custom Builders on two occasions. In the first remodel, a load bearing wall was removed between the kitchen and the family room. New windows were installed and travertine floors were laid in the main living areas of our home. In the second remodel, the master bathroom was gutted and completely done over. The results were outstanding! On both occasions, the work done by Arlington Custom Builders exceeded our expectations and greatly increased the value of our home. We would highly recommend Arlington Custom Builders!

We were very pleased with Alan’s work on our complete house remodel and have recommended his company to several friends. His workmen were very qualified and always on time. The 2 men who laid our wood floors were very knowledgeable and eagerly answered my questions about how to keep the wood in good condition. I watched with amazement at the precision as the tile men cut to fill difficult angles, etc. The whole job took only 2 and a half months and came in 15 days ahead of schedule. Besides being honest and pleasant to work with, the best characteristic about Alan is he listened carefully to our needs, shared his experience and follow through.

Alan Anderson of Arlington Custom Homes has been the general contractor for a number of large remodeling projects for us over the past 9 years or so. Master bath, office addition, closet and sitting room addition off our master bedroom, repainting, rewiring, tile work, plumbing, refurbishing our garage, installing wood garage doors are among them. Alan is an extremely honest person who works as hard as he can to make the project right. He has good, long-term relationships with his subcontractors which goes a long way toward ensuring a successful outcome. They show up when they are supposed to and all have done a good job for us. He provides detailed estimates and statements of expenses when projects are completed.
Home remodeling projects never go 100% as expected, that is the nature of the beast, but when you trust your contractor and feel safe when he and his workers are in your home and know they will do their best, you feel confident of the eventual outcome. We have come to know Alan and his subcontractors quite well over the years and have been pleased with their work, their attitude and their dedication to good service.

We have used Arlington Custom Builders for two remodeling projects in our home, one involving the kitchen and family room and the other involving two bathrooms. We are pleased to recommend Arlington and Alan Anderson very highly. Arlington provided accurate estimates and reasonable prices, and the quality of the work by Arlington and its subcontractors was just superb – there have been no problems with any of the work over the last several years. We also appreciated the assistance we got with some design ideas from Arlington, including an excellent solution that allowed us to remove part of a bearing wall between our kitchen and family room and really open up and modernize that part of the house. Arlington has also successfully removed several dropped ceilings in our kitchen and baths and relocated the ductwork from that area to our roof, so that those rooms have a more spacious and modern look. On a final note – Arlington’s people came when they said they would, worked straight through to completion, and left things completely clean. They have our unqualified recommendation!

When we decided to take on a project to fully remodel a 4,000 square foot home we spent a good amount of time considering several general contractors and two “big company” remodelers. After interviewing the candidates and much careful consideration we decided to award our project to Arlington Custom Builders. Arlington owner, Alan Anderson quickly assembled a team of experts to help us develop design ideas into a formal plan and a detailed scope of work. We are very grateful for the design ideas and advice that Alan and his team shared with us. We were particularly pleased with the work Brenda did on the cabinetry designs.
While the project was underway, Alan was on site to closely supervise all aspects of the work being performed. The scope of our project included replacing flooring, base boards, paint, installation of cabinetry and granite counters in the kitchen, bar and bathrooms, appliance installation, tile work, replacement of all plumbing fixtures, dry wall work, and significant electrical work. Throughout the remodel project, Alan was easy to contact and provided frequent progress updates. Our project was completed 15 days ahead of schedule and on budget. The craftsmen that Alan had on the project were pleasant, honest and professional.
We are extremely pleased with the outcome of our project. Alan made the process as easy as can be expected and the final outcome far exceeded our expectations. We feel that Arlington Custom Builders provided an excellent service at a great value. We will use Arlington for any future projects and would recommend them to anyone taking on a remodeling project.
