Honesty, dependability, consistently good work and low prices are all things John & Sons Home Improvement strive to bring to their customers.


John & Sons has been in business for 23 years, and it is an all-inclusive home improvement business for the entire Tri-Cities area and Southwest Virginia.


"We cover all aspects of home improvement, including landscaping, deck additions, painting, plumbing, electrical and tile work," John Aldro, the owner, said. "We have done everything from hanging pictures, installing a pottery kiln and running cable wires to installing security systems."


Jean Caldwell, a frequent client, says, "We were very pleased with the electrical work they did for us and have always been satisfied with the variety of small jobs we have requested from them."


A unique feature of John & Sons is the company's policy on after-hour emergency calls. They do not charge additional fees for coming to a home or business on "off hours."


"People cannot control when a problem happens with their home, so we don’t think they should get charged extra because of the time of day they need help. We are truly a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week business, and are always ready to take care of the job," Aldro said.


John & Sons also offer complete lawn care services and janitorial services for residential and commercial businesses. They have experience with water features for lawns and tree removal services. Once they are contacted, they are quick to respond to the service needed, or provide an estimate for a household or remodeling job.


Because of John’s expertise and experience, he is willing to offer suggestions and provide input on a project, if desired. Jim Rathschmidt of John & Sons said, "John does a lot of design and can point out a better way for the project to be done, and once it is completed the customer is always pleased with the outcome. It is a skill that John has acquired over time."


John enjoys suggesting color schemes and has also been contacted to reorganize a room or rearrange furniture layout.


"We are an all-in-one business," said Aldro. "It keeps things simple and it builds trust between the customer and our business."


Recommendations from past customers have been valuable in keeping them in business over the years.


"They were very reasonable with pricing and did a very good job. They sanded and finished our hardwood floors and we were very well pleased with their work," said Luther Minor, a customer of Johns & Sons.


"They are wonderful, very professional and do an exceptional job. They take the extra step to provide excellent customer service. I would recommend them for any home improvement or construction work," remarked Rebecca Hansel, a former customer.


Willie Connell, another satisfied customer, said, "They do great work. They completely remodeled my bathroom and they continued working until it was exactly what we wanted. I would recommend them to my family and friends for any household project."


"We run an honest business, all employees are background screened, with a current license and insured," Aldro explained. "We want to do the best job possible and provide reasonable estimates with the absolute best rate. This is how I get to help people. We do our best and want to be fair with people. We care about what we do, because that is our John Hancock."


Customer Ellen Campbell said, "They have done work for us the last six years. John is a great worker, very versatile and he does everything well.


"He has performed work for our daughter also and she has always been very pleased," Campbell added.
