Birstler Home Improvements of Virginia, Inc.

Since 1988
Stephen Birstler
Bringing my experience with building and design to Hampton Roads is an exciting new challenge for me. Every new project is a new beginning and now my new beginnings will play out in the beautiful state of Virginia. Success is measured in many ways and I have been fortunate to do what I love for the past since 1988 in New York. My success as a general contractor has been generated by my relationships with my customers and my desire to provide quality workmanship to every customer and every job. Remodeling is a passion and renovating rooms into beautiful spaces that bring years of enjoyment for my customers is success that cannot be measured. 

Prior to entering the entrepreneur realm of the Home Improvement industry, I worked in NYC as a sheet metal worker. Working on the Grand Central Station Terminal building as well as the first condominium buildings at Battery Park City adjacent to the World Trade Center, were the foundations to my start in general contracting. As a licensed Home Improvement Contractor I have built condominium communities as well as renovated several bar/restaurant establishments winning the Workmanship Award from the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce. For the past 20 years my concentration has been in home remodels, kitchens and baths, and room additions. This is where I find my sense of accomplishment and pride.

Satisfying every customer is paramount to the longevity of my business and is forefront in all of my projects.

I am the proud father of two daughters who are well on their way to defining their own lives.

I’m excited about the opportunities in Virginia and look forward to bringing joy and value to homeowners throughout the Hampton Roads Area.

Enough about me, now let’s talk about you…

Virginia Birstler
I am practically a life long native of Hampton Roads. After a 5 year stint in NYC I am delighted to be back in my home state with Stephen and continuing custom home improvement ventures.

In the corporate world I've always held long term management positions first in retail for 10 years, then in multi-family housing. I worked with Frye Properties, Inc. of Norfolk for 18 years where I gained a vast knowledge of property management in diverse portfolio’s as well as project management skills through multi-million dollar rehabilitation’s of communities.

These experiences have well suited me for my current position as Co-owner and adviser of Birstler Home Improvements of Virginia, Inc.  Great customer service, solution seeking, web design, marketing, bookkeeping, budgeting, and forecasting are all skills I brought with me to Birstler Home Improvements of Virginia, Inc.  

I am blessed with wonderful friends and family in Hampton Roads where I raised three awesome kids who are now successfully enjoying their own careers and building their own legacy.

I look forward to speaking and meeting with all who are interested in remodeling your dream spaces!
