Love Where You Live

The bulk of our clients live in beautiful, custom homes that no longer fit their lifestyle. Like most love now lost stories, they once loved their home.

Ben and the team at Thompson Remodeling are always our “go-to” guys for any and all home renovation projects, big and small. Their craftsmen are very experienced, very easy to work with and extremely reliable. From building our fireplace surround and mantle, to hanging and wiring our flat screen TV, I can always count on having a positive experience with Thompson. Thanks guys!

Ben has always been great to work with, very understanding and he sees that the work gets accomplished in a timely, and professional manner, while looking out for his clients best interests.

Tom Varano

I have known and worked with Ben and his team at Thompson Remodeling since 2003. Ben is one of the most professional and caring indivudals I know. Ben’s passion for his clients and his business can be seen in everything he does. I can enthusiastically recommend Ben and his team at Thompson Remodeling for your next remodeling need!

Don Klein

I have never had Ben do any work for me but I’ve known him for several years and have seen many projects his company has worked on. Ben is, without doubt, one of the most focused people I know. He is also extremely personable, honest, and driven. Thompson Remodeling has had a pristine reputation for many years and I would not hesitate to hire them for any project no matter how big or small.

Michael Bartels

Ben sets himself apart from others by his passion for personal development and improvement.  As long as I have known him, his passion for helping others, his family, and his clients has been amazing.

Craig Durosko

Ben and his family have been loyal customers of Virginia Tile for many years. He’s one of the hardest working, most professional people I know. His positive attitude sets a great example for both his employees and clients, and I’m always happy to have an opportunity to work with him.

Sue Strate

Ben was hired to repair the sagging wrap-around porch of our home in the historic area of Heritage Hill.  Rather than give us the standard, “tear it down and start from scratch,” as others had, he was able to diagnose the real problem – a few strategically located rotting floor boards and support beams that could be replaced.  His workers were on-time, respectful of our property and our neighbors, and expert at their craft.  We saved money, and are very pleased with the result.  We will hire him the next time we have a home repair project.

Mary Novello

Ben Thompson and his company stands head and shoulders above most remodeling companies nationwide. Locally and regionally his firm ranks with the best remodeling firms available. I have worked with Ben and would recommend he and his firm to anyone with no reservations. He always insists on delivering quality, creativity and personable service that is above and beyond what his clients are expecting, and on time too.

Stan Barnes

I’ve had the opportunity to serve as a consultant for Ben’s company, Thompson Remodeling, and sit with him on the Medical Mile Resource Group core member team. From these experiences I’ve learned that Ben is very honest, dedicated and forward-thinking. He has a knack for making a complicated process simple and for efficiently organizing a group to quickly solve a problem. I can only imagine what clients of Thompson Remodeling experience when all this is applied to their project!

Craig Clark

Ben’s creativity, kindness, and commitment to continuous improvement and doing the right thing are refreshing and inspiring.

Mary Anne Wampler

We just wanted to let you know that Charlie did a wonderful job replacing our window! I’m very happy with the way it looks and the fact that he’s super clean! My bathroom looks as good as it did when he started and I REALLY appreciate that!  We look forward to seeing Charlie around the house on the next project.


Charlie, I really like your choice with the window trim. You’re Amazing. Thanks!


Awesome. I was totally AMAZED by the progress made just yesterday.  I was also 110% impressed with how well he cleaned up before he left. KUDOS!

Amy D.

They were very professional and did exactly what they said they would do. The schedule was followed and there were no horror stories. They’ve completed two bathrooms and a kitchen for me and I would absolutely recommend them.

Ted & Fro

Thompson Remodeling did a very good job on our kitchen redo. The work was very high quality and completed on time and within budget. I would be happy to reference for them at any time for potential customers.

Tim & Deb

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner with Ben Thompson at Thompson Remodeling. Ben and his team have at various times remodeled our kitchen, constructed our wonderful fireplace, put in two wheelchair ramps, and most recently updated all of the windows in our cottage. I highly recommend the work they do, and suggest you give him a call if you have home remodeling projects of your own. Thanks for dinner, Ben!

Tony Josephson

Thank you Ben. Working with you has been a great experience for us. We will be at the house next month.  Keith will stay a few days and I will be there about a month.  After that we will be back for an extended stay.  We can hardly wait!
