To start off, let me just say that
is phenomenal. This review is for major work that
did on our home when we bought it a little over a year ago. The amount of work that he and his team did was extensive. In my heavy rush to take care of so many other things prior to moving into the house and settling in, I never got around to reviewing
and his team until now. He and his team came back again last week to paint the exterior of our home and this time, I determined that I would write the phenomenal reviews that he deserves! What follows below is my first review for last year's work.
My husband and I purchased a humble little short sale property in
2012. There were a seemingly insurmountable number of things that absolutely needed to be addressed before we could even move in. Originally, we contracted
to paint the interior of our home, but seeing that he and his team could do more, the range of services and work they performed for us grew and grew. By the time they were done,
and his team had not only painted the interior of our home, but they also:
1. Removed all of the nasty old carpeting from our home, sanded and refinished our floors (they look so beautiful now!).
2. Installed new floor tile in one of our bathrooms, 2 new vanities and 2 new toilets in both bathrooms (we purchased all of the materials- e.g., tiles, vanities, toilets, etc.)
3. Added a small strip of wood flooring to a little entryway that connects our bedroom with our bathroom (matching the new wood floor color to the original wood floor color)
4. Putting in drywall in a couple of wall sections where a hole had been put into a wall (remember, this was a short sale property so it was full of ugly realities like that)
5. Other details that were addressed as they were uncovered (refer to #2 below)
Now here's what I feel sets
and his crew apart:
1. They are honest and trustworthy
2.
and his crew have remarkable pride in their work
3. They performed consistently high-quality work
4. When one of them would discover something surprising, they would raise the issue and talk about the alternatives we had for handling any given issue (e.g., In preparing the one bathroom for laying tile, one of the contractors felt that the ridge of the entrance to the shower was very soft and raised concern that underneath, the wood frame had rotted away. We asked him to pull back that tile work and sure enough, it was an ugly rotten mess underneath - one of the many surprises that we have
continued to find over time with this short sale property).
In summary,
and his team did a phenomenal job on a diverse range of needs in our home. We were so impressed with his work last year, that we brought him and his team back this year to paint the exterior of our home. I will now draft a separate review on that equally positive experience.

It went like clockwork.
's workers removed the drop ceiling and the old ceiling underneath it, and removed the debris. Then workers created the structure for the walls and insulation and framing for the new door. Electricians came next and wired for the new lights and outlets. They created switches that allow us to control the stair light from the top or the bottom of the stairs, and rewired the laundry room so all lights can be controlled from one switch. Then
,
's wall and ceiling finishing genie, came in and created the new ceiling, walls and enclosures. The new baseboards were cut and installed, and the new door was hung, and
came back and painted everything. The electricians did their finishing touches (switch plates and outlet covers, etc.) and the new carpet was laid. It all happened in less than two weeks.

They energy audit was done by
Silver Spring General Contractors Provider Name Locked
in January and was very thorough. It showed, as I expected, a very drafty house. I waited until I could save some extra money and decided to go ahead with the job in March. When Bill
Silver Spring General Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out to check the job out, he was very knowledgeable about everything to do with energy efficiency, utilities, buildings, these houses, crawl spaces, attics, furnaces, my neighborhood, and he seemed very understanding about my financial situation. I liked that he was a small company and that he gave me individual attention. I also liked

's cheerful nature when he was doing the energy audit. I forgot to mention that
Silver Spring General Contractors Provider Name Locked
brought couple of helpers to the audit that day because he wasn't feeling well, but I wouldn't have known that unless he told me because he acted completely professional and knowledgeable about the job. And his helpers,
Silver Spring General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Silver Spring General Contractors Provider Name Locked
, were especially good about getting the job done efficiently and thoroughly. Getting down in those tight crawl spaces isn't especially easy, but they did it with grace and completely good spirits, took great photos and measurements. When the work itself started in March,

did a fantastic job on the room. Then they both went up to the roof attic and insulated that together and air sealed it. It was a 2-man effort. They worked really well as a team. And they were joking around some of the time to keep the long days light. They were really nice to be around. They treated me and my house with respect. They were very neat workers. They cleaned up everything before they left each day. They even swept up and down the steps.

swept up my granddaughter's room which was next to the furnace room. They put everything back into the storage area exactly as I instructed. They were happy to be working or so it seemed. Bill
Silver Spring General Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the owner, also was only a phone call away, and if I ever needed him, told me to call anytime, which on occasion I did. He was more than prompt and attentive to a problem that arose and solved a minor misunderstanding I had. This is a great company and has excellent people in it. I would hire them again and again and recommend them highly.

It was a fairly extensive job, since it was the original kitchen from 1964 and it had a lot of issues. Previous residents had re-routed the sink water pipes through the lower cabinets. In addition, this particular region of
Silver Spring General Contractors Provider Name Locked
county has experienced chronic pinhole leaks in copper water pipes, and our house was no exception. As a consequence, the ceiling had been damaged and patched many times. Settling of the house and possibly a prior water leak had warped the kitchen floor slightly to cause cracking in the tile. The OEM appliances and cabinetry were also worn out. We obtained estimates from two companies, and chose
Silver Spring General Contractors Provider Name Locked
. Unlike the other company, Rich
Silver Spring General Contractors Provider Name Locked
listened to what we wanted and came up with some creative ways to make that happen. One such request was to retain a laundry chute that went through a wall that was by the entry door, while removing the obtrusive wall. Rich is a talented designer and he was able to come up with a creative solution that included a reconstructed
Silver Spring General Contractors Provider Name Locked
laundry chute that runs through some custom cabinets. We wanted a hood instead of a microwave-hood over the range, so he designed a cabinet with a shelf that accommodates a small microwave oven such that it looks built-in. Rich also added a small angled cabinet to the side of the built-in refrigerator on the wall near the doorway, to soften the angle and improve the appearance. The electrician, plumber, floor crew and carpenters that did the work were all top-notch and very professional. Rich called in every day to update us on what was done and what was scheduled for the next day. This level of communication is essential since questions and issues always arise during a job like this. One example was when they had to remove a door frame to get the refrigerator into the kitchen. After some discussion, we agreed to widen and re-frame the doorway an additional 6 inches, which really opened up the entry to the dining room. We also decided midway through the job to replace the window and they accommodated this request without any delay. We purchased the appliances through a distributor that Rich works with who gave us a great price. This worked to our advantage since the distributor coordinated delivery with
Silver Spring General Contractors Provider Name Locked
?s construction schedule. In addition, when the plumber determined that the dishwasher was slightly damaged in shipment, Rich worked with the distributor to obtain a replacement without any delay in the schedule. He also sent us to his granite distributor and to a distributor the he works with that installed the ceramic floor and backsplash. All of these people were great to work with. Once the job started, they worked nearly every day. They were very careful to cover the hardwood floors in the surrounding rooms and they always cleaned up any dust, etc., before they left each day. The whole kitchen came together perfectly and we couldn?t be happier with the finished product and with the entire experience.

They were excellent. The owner came to give the quote, and he was very punctual. He was very careful and detailed. He brought photographs of work they had done in other homes. He was very straightforward about what were the potential areas where the project might go out of scope. He also so gave me a warning that some things might be more expensive. The builders who came did a great job. They cleaned up everything well. They were nice people. I had a very good experience with them.
