When Nick and Lee Ann bought their home in Richmond’s Fan district earlier this year, they knew it was solidly constructed but poorly finished.
“In my opinion, previous owners cheapened the house by failing to hire high-quality finishing contractors,” he says. “The bones of the house are pretty darn good, and the overall condition was good, but the house suffered for a number of years with poor paint jobs over poor paint jobs.”
Nick and Lee Ann were aware of H.J. Holtz & Son’s reputation, but they did their due diligence before calling the company for an estimate.
Shannon Thompson laughs as she recalls that H. J. Holtz & Son team members initially spent more time in her new home than she did.
Thompson and her husband, Christopher, bought the house in Richmond’s Westmoreland Place neighborhood at the end of December 2018. They were moving from New York City to Richmond to be close to family, but at the time of purchase were spending the winter in Florida. Their time away created the perfect opportunity to redecorate the house from top to bottom with little dislocation.

Curb appeal is something many people only think about when getting ready to sell. Why wait? Small exterior improvements can make a big impact.
Holtz & Son’s carpentry division, which had served for years primarily to support painting and paper jobs, is now coming to the fore with its own free-standing projects in which the craftsmanship of a well-experienced team is front and center.
