John & Sons specializes in maintenance and repair services

John & Sons Home Improvement specializes in general repairs for business and commercial structures, as well as janitorial cleaning.

For more than 23 years, John & Sons Home Improvement, based in Kingsport, has been providing maintenance and repair services to buildings and property throughout the United States.

Owned by John Aldro, John & Sons Home Improvement specializes in general repairs for business and commercial structures, as well as janitorial cleaning. In addition, the company works a lot with banks and real estate companies to repair and refurbish homes that have gone into foreclosure.

"In working on those properties, it is important to provide good work in a timely and cost-efficient manner," explained Jim Rathschmidt, an associate with John & Sons.

"It is our job to get those homes ready quickly and back on the market so the banks can recover their money," he added.

Aldro has been a tool guy since his early childhood.

"My mom tells me I used to push the toys away and go for the tool box and start building when I was young," he laughed. His mother recounted a particular time when Aldro was around 2 years old. "I apparently took the toaster apart, and kept trying to put it back together until my dad finally decided to put me to bed."

Over the years, he has picked up skills in every area of home repair and maintenance, including plumbing, electrical, tile work and masonry.

And no job is too small or too big for John & Sons.

"We have done everything from going into a home to hang a painting to large-scale new construction," Aldro said.

Aside from Rathschmidt, John & Sons has nine additional craftsmen, each with a different area of expertise. The company is qualified and licensed for federal and government contracts.

Aldro provides free estimates on all jobs, and rates are either by the hour or by the project depending on the level of difficulty. All work is backed with a guarantee. "We do the best quality work possible," Rathschmidt said.

"If a customer is not satisfied with our work, we will make it right," Aldro added.

A lot of their work comes from repeat, satisfied customers.

"We do good work at affordable prices, so we get a lot of repeat business," Aldro said. In addition, these satisfied customers send many referrals to John & Sons.

Mary Marley Brohimer is just one satisfied client who posted this comment on the company’s website: "Just wanted you all to know that we think your work is exceptional and above reproach. It is difficult to find good honest people in this day and age that give both excellent quality work at prices the average person can afford. Very dependable too! Thanks so much! You saved us!"

Responsiveness is also key in Aldro’s company. "We are available seven days a week, 24 hours a day for emergency services. If you have an electrical or plumbing problem in the middle of the night, just call us and we will have a person on the job," Aldro said.

To reach John & Sons Home Improvement, you may call the office number at 423-765-0747 or either of Aldro’s personal cell phone numbers - 423-967-9993 or 423-967-9919.
