Comments by Fearrington Village Residents:
“Extremely Thankful for my Excellent General Contractor. In case any of you are thinking about remodeling or just need some quality workmanship around your home, I can’t say enough good things about MALCOLM DUFF, general contractor. He goes above and beyond in every way, is reasonably priced, respectful and genuinely cares about his clients. He is, by far THE BEST person I’ve ever had work on any of my homes. He used to build houses and have staff and now he has “downsized” to a small crew so we get to benefit from his experience, but get personal service. He took a lot of time with design of my entry makeover and my kitchen, and does design work for a flat fee (whether you hire him for the job or not). His mobile is: 919-545-4677 He can be booked out a bit, so plan ahead!”“My wife and I have used his services since 2003 in the Village for a wide variety of projects from handcrafted dinnerware display cabinets to our most recent outdoor wood patio and curving brick walkway – both, exceptional work! At our new place on [here in the village historic district], he also created ceiling triple track lights in the living room, and beautiful huge picture windows in the dining area in addition to new wood flooring throughout. He is a pleasure to work with and loves what he does. You can reach him via text message at 919.545.4677.”
