Our Team at Steve Spratt Improvements


Steve Spratt Improvements was established in 1978 by Stephen W. Spratt, working with F. J. “Jimbo” Rubenstein, Jr., and operating out of Steve’s home.  His wife, Linda, has been his bookkeeper since the beginning.  In 1983, they built a shop/office building and moved the operation to Alum Spring Road.  The business was incorporated in 1995, the Production Manager position was created in 1993, and an additional sales position added in 1996.  The business has grown to a total of 14 employees and has earned a reputation as the best remodeling company in the Fredericksburg area, according to “Front Porch Magazine”, 2003.  The Company received the 1994 Chrysalis Award for the category of “Best Whole House Renovation under $50,000”.

What We Do

Steve Spratt Improvements is a full service residential remodeling company, serving the City of Fredericksburg, VA and the surrounding counties of Spotsylvania, [South] Stafford, King George and Caroline.  We contract for anything from 2-story additions to minor home repairs, including kitchen & bath remodeling and renovation, sunrooms, screened porches, siding, window & door replacements, and finishing off basements.

Our Philosophy

From the beginning, our emphasis has been on quality.  We believe that by doing a job the right way -- the way that will stand the test of time – we will produce a quality product and have satisfied clients.  In an industry plagued by shoddy workmanship, our craftsmen use their expertise and pride in their work on each job, as if they were working on their own home.  We give our clients a completed project that we can look back on with pride. And, if anything goes wrong in the future, our 3 year warranty is among the best in the industry.

Lead Carpenter System

Steve Spratt Improvements has adopted the Lead Carpenter system.  The Lead Carpenter is on the job every day doing the work, supervising the Subcontractors, keeping the client informed about the progress of the project and any issues that come up.  He also orders material, schedules the trades and makes sure the job site is clean every day.  With his cell phone, the Lead Carpenter is available for questions throughout the day.
