Review by David Williams on Yelp, December 2021

"I can’t speak highly enough of Foreman Builders.

Building a new custom home is a daunting task for anyone, especially for the uninitiated.  It is a lengthy process with many choices and decisions that must be made in a timely fashion.  Tony and his entire staff made it as easy as it can be, from lot design to buying appliances and accoutrements, they were there to assist.  We made a lot of new friends in the process.
That is the nuts and bolts of the actual process. 

Regarding the craftsmanship, you won’t find better.  From the carpenters to his subcontractors Tony employees the most meticulous people in the business.  And he is very hands-on, insuring that every single detail is up to his high standards. 

We absolutely love our new house.  What few irregularities that surfaced (present in all construction projects) were rectified immediately.  And if that’s not enough, Foreman Builders guarantees their work for two years. 

Regardless of your building needs you, absolutely, owe it to yourself to talk to Tony Foreman before you choose a builder for your custom home."

“We are so happy with how our house turned out - EXACTLY what we were hoping for and more. We listen to friends talk about what a challenge building their homes were but we had the opposite experience.
The first time we met Mr. Tony Foreman and his staff we were convinced they were the ones we wanted to build our home. The extra time taken by the employees and sub-contractors was impressive as they worked to make each deadline. We also stayed within our budget.
Mr. Foreman made himself available for any questions we had along the way and always greeted us with a smile. We have and will recommend Foreman Builders to anyone thinking of building or remodeling.”

"Our search for a new home in this area, while returning from Colorado to live near our children and grandchildren, spread over much of Virginia, southern Maryland, and northern West Virginia but as we narrowed our needs the focus was in Clarke and Frederick Counties . We were interested in a new home as we were recovering from several repairs on used homes but we did not know any builders in the area. We turned to Google for “best builders” to see who was out there who might build us a home near Winchester.

We read several positive reviews about Foreman Builders which lead us to a meeting with Tony Foreman. During the meeting we learned about his organized and disciplined approach to the home building process, his history in the custom-building business and determined that he had several models that would be ideal for our lifestyle. After our meeting and visiting one of their completed homes we were convinced that Foreman Builders would be our ideal builder.

Working with Mr. Foreman and his team during the construction process has been a most positive experience from start to finish. His sub-contractors have all delivered excellent professional results, answered all our questions, and confirmed that they are proud to work with Foreman Builders because of their commitment to excellence in all aspects of the building process. We were fully integrated into the building process and throughout the build experienced integrity, honesty, and fairness from Tony and his team.

In the end we received a home that has exceeded our expectations in quality, appearance and reliability. We are confident that the home we received will meet our needs for years to come and we could not be happier with it."

"Our house on Apple Pie Ridge is the sixth and largest house we've built. We have found that the keys to a successful building project are having good, detailed plans and specs and a quality and reputable builder. The few changes that we wanted after the building process started were seamlessly made by Tony and his staff. The end result was a fabulous house and some wonderful new relationships. Issues that arose after completion were quickly and thoroughly resolved. We picked a winner in choosing Foreman Builders."

"We moved into our custom designed and constructed Foreman Builders home a week ago. After a dozen corporate moves, we decided to retire in Winchester, VA. At the onset of the process, we interviewed several builders and selected Foreman Builders because they seemed to "Walk the Talk" in terms of integrity, quality, trustworthiness, and in general operated and conducted their business with the values we were looking for. Thankfully, our intuition turned out to be spot on!

We brought in rough blue prints and got needed input and suggestions from Foreman resources and team members that were necessary at the onset of the project. We also had the participation of Foreman resources to visit the various suppliers with us to make the selections of the various choices ranging from exterior materials, to electrical and plumbing fixtures, cabinetry, etc. The actual construction itself was executed by courteous and quality driven employees and subcontractors who were always polite, respectful, and professional, and who would take the time to answer the many questions we had along the way. The Foreman process of having a full time site manager ensures the type of continuity and communications that are crucial to manage the details and work flow of building a custom home. After being in the home for only a week, amazingly, we literally had no open punch list items!

To summarize, we couldn't be more thrilled with how our home turned out. The Foreman Builders process coupled with the manner in which each employee contributed certainly yielded first rate results. We absolutely made the right builder selection to build our home - if we had to do it all over again, there's no doubt but that we'd again choose Foreman Builders."

Lynn and Matt - Winchester, VA

"Tony Foreman and his team did an amazing job building our beautiful home on schedule and within contract cost. From design through finish, the Foreman team took time to ensure that we understood the building process and guided selections that met our style and budget. Ken Foreman, our project manager, provided excellent service in crafting our home. Ken's attention to detail and responsiveness contributed to the success of the build, and Foreman's sub-contractors and tradesmen were task focused, did excellent work, and were always willing to take a moment to discuss our home.

This was our first experience in building a home, let alone a custom home. The nightmare stories of contractors not showing, schedule delays, shoddy workmanship, and cost overruns were among our concerns. Tony and his team took care of all of the details for us and kept us informed as the house progressed. For a superior home using quality materials, with beautiful finishes, we'd definitely recommend Foreman Builders. Our experience with Tony Foreman and Foreman Builders shows they deliver as promised and their word is their bond."

"The Foreman team transformed our numerous ideas, scribbles, and clippings into our dream home. We tested their patience and creative problem solving every step of the way and they always responded with a can-do attitude and good dose of humor. We now have our forever home."

“A Dream Home Come True”

My wife and I want to thank the team at Foreman Builders for being partners in creating our dream home. As the home comes to completion, we find ourselves looking back on our first meeting with Tony Foreman.

Impressed by his business and personal beliefs, was a man with experienced building knowledge, values and integrity only to be complimented by, his in house team leader by Bart, office manager Linda and his Site Supervisor, Kenny Foreman, his son.

All have guided us trough this incredible journey with advice when needed and listening when it mattered. Tony has shown unparalleled compassion for our families medical issues while Bart and Linda have made the changes and paper work easy to manage. Kenny’s supervision skills have only been surpassed by his consistent respect for our taste and needs. Tony can be very proud to call Kenny his son.

Our Home design from Gardner Architects that was available on the Foreman’s building web site making the process of choosing a Custom Home design even easier.

All of the subcontractors along with the recommended product suppliers were fantastic to work with. So much so, that we feel like we have made new friends in an unfamiliar land.

Family medical issues may have brought us from Florida to Virginia, but something much higher up in the over seeing of life brought us to Foreman Builders.

We give thanks,

Dale and David - September, 1, 2020

"David and I want to thank all of you for the beautiful home you have built for us. It was a continuous effort by you guys and the subcontractors from February to August, a remarkable build time for a 3000 square foot house with a large basement.

Six months of work for the build. It was all done with great professionalism. I always felt comfortable at the site talking and visiting with you guys, my construction family.

Many, many thanks for each and everyone of you."

"If you are looking for the A-team to build your new home in the Northern Shenandoah Valley area, look no further than Foreman Builders. Our nearly 4,500 sf house was built in just over 6 months to top-notch standards, and we were guided throughout the architect-less and designer-less process by an exceptionally dedicated, experienced and caring team. Every member of the Foreman team was a joy to work with, and we will forever be grateful to them for their work and personal ethics, and for the seamless experience despite our frequently requested changes. As importantly, follow-up on whatever may come up after handover is always addressed professionally and seriously. We have felt enriched by the experience and by getting to know such a special and professional group of people."


"Tony Foreman recently completed my custom home on-time and on-budget. His crews worked hard every day and it was clear that they were determined to produce a quality product. The house involved a number of unique features, like timber beams, and Tony was able to put together a team that could handle it all. I was impressed that it was always easy to get in touch with Tony and he always kept his word. Throughout the process I was given a number of opportunities to make decisions which would control cost and/or improve the home, all of which I greatly appreciated. I am extremely happy with my new home.”

Roger and Sharon

“Tony Foreman takes pride in the homes he constructs. He is an honorable businessman who aims to please his clients. His personal approach is sincere and straight forward. We never felt pressured as we made decisions about the custom aspects of our home. He not only kept his word and built out home in six months, but there were no costs overruns, no nonsense and no drama. Along the way he suggested small features that made big differences in conveniences and aesthetics. Tony Took care of minor issues on site, every day. His crews were conscientious and kept the construction site exceptionally clean. He made sure we got what we wanted…a beautiful quality home, on time, and on budget.”

Danita and Curt

"Tony Foreman delivered everything he promised in our custom home. At the end we looked around and realized it was better than we thought it would be-he far met our expectations. Tony and his son Kenny were, well, the word that comes to mind, “delightful” to work with. We were made to feel like they genuinely had our best interest at heart and when Tony and Kenny said, “We want you to be happy, it was both a comfort and a truth. The whole team was 100% responsive and expedient. Clearly, Tony will no put his name on anything that is not the best it can be. He is a man of integrity, wisdom and a wonderful craftsman.”


“As a widower, my new home had to be free of needing a lot of “handyman” maintenance. I’ve lived in my  home for a year, now, and it posses such solid construction, I haven’t had any issues. When I compared my home to others, I can see the difference in the paint job, the quality of the wood moldings, built-ins, and finished as well as overall functionality. Should I encounter any issues with my home, I know that Tony Foreman would response immediately to my call. During construction, Tony was always on top of everything, very considerate and respectful. I felt he was looking out for my best interest. You don’t see much of that in the business world, any more.”

Charlie and Joyce 

“No one does detail work like Tony Foreman. ‘Out-of-the-way’ spaces, such as our garage and laundry room, have the same quality of details as our grand entrance and primary living spaces. It is more than we expected. In the back of our home, the way Tony used our stone patio to connect the outside entrance of our basement to other parts of our wrap-around porch, tells us he’s experienced and has good taste. We found Tony, his son Kenny, and the workmen to be exceptionally nice. Even the smallest of problems were taken care of quickly and efficiently. Bottom line, we believe our beautiful Foreman Builders home will hold its value and give us pleasure for many years to come."
