Moss Building & Design is a family-owned business that has been remodeling homes in the Northern Virginia market for 11 years. Owners, Pete Hampel, Justin Schopp and Jason Hampel all live and work in Moss’ service area, and giving back to the community has always been part of the company’s philosophy.
Throughout the years, Moss has contributed to causes that affect local families–from contributing to Habitat for Humanity by providing reusable materials removed from homes during remodeling projects to sponsoring local hospitals for area children through the Children’s Miracle Network.
