Simply put, Brian Miller is the best contractor we have ever worked with–either in West Virginia or any other state we have lived in. It actually took a year to find Brian while we went through six other contractors who were less than satisfactory for different reasons. During our year long search, one contractor left our house for Home Depot and never returned and one highly rated contractor would only estimate the job through pictures and a visit from their sales representative (a process which took two frustrating months). In contrast, Brian spent about 20 hours with us planning the project. We initially talked about replacing the deck and patio under it, but the house had been neglected for years and the previous owner had done a lot of work that wasn’t up to code. As a result, work on the deck–and only the deck–could have caused significant damage to our kitchen (which was on top of an enclosure that lacked proper footers). Brian brought out a structural engineer on several occasions and they designed a fix that was easily accepted by the County permitting office and also allowed him to create a beautiful pattern with the wood deck. The demolition actually began the first week of January and the weeks got progressively colder. Brian’s team worked at an incredible speed in brutally cold weather. Brian was meticulous in measuring and laying out the footers and deck flooring–working all day in weather that left us frozen after a half hour. During the permitting process, the county said we had to replace our septic system to bring it up to code. Brian actually contacted someone to do the job in two weeks from start to finish–so it didn’t impact the rest of the scheduled work at our house. After finishing the deck, the team created a beautiful paver patio underneath it. All the work was beautifully done–even the cinder block and framing under the kitchen–which isn’t visible outside the house. The team also replaced rotting wood along the bottom of the house with cinder block and proper outside wood and then replaced siding on that portion of the house, choosing siding that matched the rest of the house. Brian and his team truly took the house from neighborhood eyesore to neighborhood gem. All the neighbors have told us how nice the house looks. Interestingly, everyone has also remarked on how hard the team worked, noting that they never saw them hanging around–rather they worked all day. We are already talking to Brian about another project and highly recommend him.
Words cannot express just how much we appreciate the overall experience we have had with Brian and his entire crew. We have the well-built custom home of our dreams. From the first meeting with Brian, we knew he was the contractor for us. We
felt heard and understood and he proved this by giving us exactly what we expressed as important factors in our new home. The quality of craftsmanship is unparalleled and it is evident in every corner of our home. Thank you Brian, Travis, Jen, Dan, Mark, and R.B. for everything. Also, thank you to the other tradesmen that Brian puts so much faith in, as you all have made our dream home a reality.
Concept to Completion – Remodeling & Custom Homes
The whole point of embarking on a custom home building or remodeling project is to end up with exactly what you envisioned as the home of your dreams. However, there are an awful lot of things that can go wrong between your initial concept and the final result, and the only way you’ll be completely satisfied is by finding and working with the right remodeling contractor.
As a number of very happy customers will attest, one such contractor is Miller’s Residential Creations of Martinsburg, WV, specialists in remodeling projects and the very finest custom-built homes constructed in Jefferson, Berkeley, and Morgan counties. From concept to completion, there is no more talented or professional organization than Miller’s Residential. Here’s why.
Miller’s Residential Creation’s Unique Process
There are a number of very experienced and really talented professionals at Miller’s Residential Creations – but that doesn’t mean we try to impose our ideas on you about what kind of home would be best for you. Instead, we arrange for very thorough discussions, during which we help you to verbalize exactly what kind of ideas you have in mind, and translate them into building concepts. Whatever your goals might be, and whatever kinds of benefits you’d like in your new home, we can help solidify those ideas into real-life, functional features.
After taking as much time as needed to identify all your objectives and ideas, we begin the design phase. Our design specialists develop a plan which can be used by the construction team to build exactly the kind of home you discussed with us during the conceptual phase. Once a design has been completed, we review that with you to make sure all your ideas have been expressed in the building plan. If any tweaks are necessary, those are handled at this time.
Once we have an approved design, our construction team can go to work. We have all the equipment needed to get the job done right, and to deliver it on schedule as agreed. There are no shortcuts, no cost-cutting measures, no sacrifices on quality. Everyone in our company understands that our good reputation depends on doing the highest-quality work every time, for every customer. We stand behind our work 100%, and we don’t consider any job to be done until you the customer are completely happy with the results.
When your dream home is finished, you’ll have the terrific feeling that comes from knowing every inch of the home is just the way you want it. We pledge to work hand-in-hand with you from concept to completion, in order to ensure that’s exactly what happens.

Dan and the other 2 professionals sent to our home by the owner of the company, Brian Miller, displayed the utmost in knowledge, experience, and professionalism. If you are looking for a company that will take shortcuts, and sacrifice quality to save a few dollars, DO NOT call Miller’s! They use superior materials, and will take the time needed to do the job the right way, the first time! I am so glad we checked Angie’s List before making our decision. Thanks to them, we made the best choice the first time!
This is the second job Brian has done for us. He and his crew do excellent work. Last year he built a deck and hardscape that turned out beautifully. The window and siding job he did this year is beautiful and of the highest quality. The most important quality for a contractor is that he does what he promises within the scheduled time and budget. We can always rely on Brian to keep his promises. The quality of the work is top notch. Brian also spent a lot of time helping us decide what types of windows to get and helped us make decisions for colors and types of siding. He will spend a lot of time helping a customer choose products to be used in a particular job. I would not hesitate to recommend Miller’s Residential Creations to anyone who needs a quality contractor.
