Southern Comfort Home Improvements and Maintenance takes pride in doing a great job and doing it right the first time. Here are some examples of how our customers view us and our work:

Adam and I could not be happier with our master bathroom remodel completed by Southern Comfort’s team.  Darlene and her crew did some remodeling/updating  for us after we purchased our home in 2009, and we knew she would be an excellent choice for remodeling our master bathroom, closet floor, and laundry room floor.  Darlene is the most responsive contractor I have ever worked with.  We appreciate that the work is done beautifully, in the time frame, and on budget.  She is our go to contractor for all of our home improvement projects.  Thank you Darlene!”

Darlene, we are really pleased with our newly remodeled master bathroom.  You and your employees did an outstanding job. They were able to keep things neat and clean while being expert at laying tile, painting and finish details. Everyone was always friendly and attentive to our wishes. We particularly liked the regular email updates on work schedules that listed who was coming what they were going to do and when. There were never times when we weren't absolutely sure what was going on and what to expect. That was very reassuring. Southern Comfort was really professional from beginning to end. Now our bathroom feels like a relaxing spa and we have the coolest medicine cabinet, ever. Property Brothers eat your heart out! Thanks so much.

I wanted to write this note in appreciation of the work you and your team have done.  The entire team was punctual, diligent, courteous and dedicated to doing the best job.  Jeff really came through for us by improvising and installing the fixture despite a missing part.  Finally, what really stood out is the honesty and commitment of your team.  Having missed out one of the items on the work order, I was told that your team came back to finish it...and worked through pouring rain to get the job done! It was a pleasure having you and Jeff work with us...we'll be eager to refer you to anyone who needs your services.


Our recent bathroom remodel turned out exactly as we had imagined!  Darlene is a wonderful contractor who thinks of each detail and plans accordingly. She is organized and the timetable of work and budget were both as she had quoted and each phase of construction flowed smoothly.  She has great ideas to share and is a great communicator. The workers, including the tile crew, electricians,  woodworkers and painters were skilled above and beyond A+, and left no mess as they worked to keep the rest of our home clean during the construction phase.  They also were very fine, professional men. We highly recommend Darlene for her knowledge and professional abilities.  We plan to use Southern Comfort for our future needs and if you want perfection for your home project, we suggest you look no further.  They are the BEST!

"We have used the services of Southern Comfort  for yard- and home maintenance for the past few years. We have been quite pleased with the quality of their work as well as the honesty, reliability, and integrity. Once we agree on the jobs to be done and the schedules, we can rest assured that the work will be done satisfactorily and on time. Rain or shine, the yard work will be done every week during the peak growing season.   Moreover, I find it quite convenient that Darlene and her staff keep an eye on our property all the time, and advise us promptly whenever they notice something that needs to be fixed such as squirrel damage, wood-rot, or whatever. No project is too small for them: for example, when we are out of town and the potted foliage need TLC and watering, all I have to do is to let them know via email/phone, and we can rest assured that it will be taken care of! Great service!  We would gladly recommend their services to our friends and neighbors."

"We began using Southern Comfort when we came to Gainesville, six years ago. They take care of our lawn and shrubs, power wash our sidewalk, driveway and pool deck, wash our windows, do spring clean-up and blow off our roof. They also perform some general handyman work. Truly one stop shopping. The same people show up to do the job so there’s no breaking in period and they do good work at a reasonable price. We have recommended them to friends and will continue to do so."

"We have used Southern Comfort for several years for a multitude of projects – from small to large projects in and around the house. Darlene and Jeff are so easy to work with and extremely prompt. They are very honest business people who put a lot of pride in their work. They always do a great job and are very reliable. My kids know them and their employees by name. We even feel comfortable having them and their employees working at the house when our children are home with a babysitter. I have referred many friends to them and know they will be satisfied."

"This is to strongly endorse the services of Southern Comfort and its staff as excellent resources for completing high quality repairs or installations for your home. We have benefited from their thoughtful and careful work on projects addressing the inside and outside of our house. Overall, we find Southern Comfort is very professional and competent – they are our first stop for meeting our needs for home repairs. We recommend them highly."

Robert Crow

"As a homeowner and investor I have utilized the services of Southern Comfort Home Improvements and Maintenance, Inc since 2005. we purchased a home in the Duck Pond area where they were instrumental in its complete renovation. They did much of the demolition and carpentry work. In fact, their work was recognized in the September 2006 issue of Gainesville Today when the magazine did a feature story on the renovation. I also contracted Southern Comfort in the complete renovation of a house severely fire damaged in the Richmond subdivision. Southern Comfort is without a doubt the company I would recommend for almost any home service. "

"We called upon the services of Southern Comfort Home Improvements to help restore the home to its original condition. This included a vast amount of work and Jeff and Darlene Strong did a superb job. Among the tasks required was arranging for all new carpeting, repainting the entire house, steam cleaning floors, arranging for rebuffing the floors, installing new ceiling fans, sink faucets, sink, new gas stove, fixing the oven, and lots and lots of repairing and replacing. Darlene kept me well informed and went to great efforts to get the best price for the value and she and Jeff were prompt, reliable and pleasant to work with and did an excellent job."
