Excellent service. I loved keeping the business local.

>R&B did an excellent job. Our salesman was Mike White. The install was done in conjunction with a complete roof replacement that was done by another company. Mike coordinated with the other vendor so that the AC and roof replacement were completed in 3 days. In addition to the project being completed within the timeline promised, R&B provided a discount, came in on budget and did a beautiful job of clean up following the install.
Maury Edwards – October 20, 2010

We started using them in 1996 and they put duct work in for us and they replaced our furnace. They know what they are doing and they are also prompt and professional. I never felt that I was being charged more.
Ken Schoppmann 10-13-2009

My wife, Karin and I are extremely pleased with the result of your efforts. The new system is operating excellently and meeting all of our expectations. I want to especially commend both David Snyder and Mike White for their design expertise. Mike was also most accommodating in making certain that we were always satisfied with all aspects of the installation.

Mrs Simmons 12-2012 (ALEX. VA)

Dexter & I were very impressed with the attention todetail and the care taken by Richard & Kenny, Dale and Ron. Not only were they excellent workers, they were a pleasure to have in our home. When ever we look at the pipes coming out of the boiler, we remember how careful they are to get it all lined up and left the copper shining. We also appreciate Rob's patience and advice on the project.
Anne Leland 01-24/2007 (ARL. VA)

The technicians job performace was excellent - on a scale of 1 to 10. they are definately a "10". Their teamwork is outstanding, there was no down time, debris was at a minimum. they cleaned up as they worked.. i haven't seen workmanship like that in over twenty five years. At 4:00pm I was informed that the system would be running at 4:30pm and indeed it was up and running at 4:30pm.
Rose Vaill 09-18-06 (ALEX.VA)

I think R&B Inc. is wonderful! They always do a supurb job. The people that works at an establishment make the company or breaks the company. Everyone I have had contact with has been very polite and helpful.

I have always been pleased with your company and your employees. I recommend R&B all the time!

Kate Crawley 7-21-14 (ALEX. VA)

Very happy with new unit.
Grafton Cole 7-14-14 (SPRINGFIELD, VA)

R&B Inc, provided exceptional service. My furnace quit in the dead of winter. They made a same-day visit to assess the issue and were able to schedule a replacement for the next day. When they encountered an issue with my chimney that prevented them from completing the duct work, they installed the furnace anyway, clean up all debris, and only charged me 60% of the quote since the job was not finished. 2 months later when the chimney was repaired (by another contractor), they returned within one day to complete the installation. All around they were incredibly professional, helpful, courteous and reliable. I recommend them highly, as a result, American Standard products.
Lea Blubaugh 7-22-14 (ALEX.VA)

Dear Mike, Dale, Dave and all of your team at R&B,

Please know how much I appreciated your considerate, kind, professional, and intelligent work in helping us recover from what could have been a very serious disaster. In January 2015, our radiant in floor heat failed--creating a string of events that led to frozen pipes and a waterfall of water from broken pipes in the ceiling. From the first phone call, Mike was on the scene and arranged for restoration help--who came within 1.5 hours. R&B examined the options and created a plan that now provides us with warm consistent heat. Because we did not have adequate duct work, they needed to install new ducts and worked around our existing AC system. I could not recommend anyone more highly. In all the years that I have worked with home renovations in multiple houses form Maine to Delaware to PA and DC, R&B stands out as the best in service and results.

Thank You Thank You.
Beverly S. 4-06/15 (ALEX VA)

Love working with R&B. Their continuity in employee staff is remarkable and each service person speaks very highly of their employer. We have been seeing the same service people for ten years now! They should keep doing just what they have been doing in the past. It works! They have set the bar high for other service people! Wish they were all like R&B!
