Chris Papadopoulos helped us with several service calls. This time we had a major plumbing problem. The concrete floor had to be demolished so plumber can work on replacing pipes. Chris was very prompt and willing to put our repairs on the schedule right away. His supervision helped bringing the completion of this job in a record time. His crew is very professional and detail oriented. The cost of repairs was very fair and the quality of his work was impeccable. We will and did recommended Chris Papadopoulos to anybody that might need work done to their home.

AGSBuilders / Green Studio Builders Inc.
Green Studio Builders (and specifically its owners, Chris and Nicoleta Papadopoulos) helped me take a financially devastating situation with my house and turn it into an opportunity to create a home that I love. A little backstory: I bought my home in Hyattsville in 2009. It was a single family detached colonial with a three-story addition on the back-side of the house.  In 2010, I was told by a county inspector that the addition was un-permitted. It wasn?t clear until 2012 just how faulty the construction of the addition was. Long story short, it became clear that the repairs needed to bring the addition up to code were going to cost 150K or more. It took me a year find a way to finance the repairs. Once I had, I hired an engineer and architect to draft rough plans to inform estimates. Enter GSBuilders. When I met with Chris for the initial walk-through of my home, he was sympathetic, attentive, and optimistic. I felt immediately at ease and could tell that he was an expert who would take great care in fixing the mess I?d inherited. He recommended a complete demolish and rebuild, adding valuable square footage and ensuring that things would be wholly right. He was the only contractor to suggest a complete rebuild. The added value was double the added cost! When his estimate came in as one of the most competitive for a rebuild, I was delighted. Chris and Nicoleta made their support clear from the start. Chris spent his own time cleaning up the messes in the plans drafted by the architect and engineer I'd previously hired. He and Nicoleta both helped me navigate a personal health crisis in the middle of the project, meeting me on site to provide reassurance and welcoming me to their offices regularly with advice and espresso. Nicoleta spent hours helping me coordinate finishes. She acted as my designer at no extra charge. even making trips to tile stores and walking me through other finished project sites (with owner's permission) for inspiration. Nicoleta has a generous heart, exquisite taste, and great strategies for creating beautiful spaces on a budget. I also owe a debt of gratitude to William Reyes, the foreman assigned to my project. When Chris and Nicoleta had to tend to a family crisis of their own, William stepped in and held my hand through every step of the project through completion. Every renovation has its hiccups and I always knew I could count on William (Mr. William as I took to calling him because he always called me Miss Pamela) to come up with a great solution that would keep the project on track. In some cases the obstacles became opportunities for improvement! I couldn?t have asked for better. I could write for pages and pages about the specific ways in which GSBuilders saved my house and my sanity. Thanks to Chris and Nicoleta, my grief over this unexpected financial blow has become delight in my beautiful home.  I am forever grateful and cannot recommend their services highly enough. I can, however, offer individuals venturing into a project with GSBuilders some advice that will make everyone?s life easier. 1. Start your project with GSBuilders from the drafting stage. My only regret is that I didn?t find and work with GSBuilders and their engineers and architects from the start. They have a well-coordinated team and the quality of the work for the price can?t be beat. Save yourself the headaches and trust them with it ALL! 2. Know the specifics of your budget and start collecting photos of spaces and finishes you love. Nicoleta can work magic within your preferred style and budget, especially if you have specific price points for finishes and have a clear aesthetic. And even if you don't, Nicoleta will help you figure it out. That is tremendous added value. 3. Keep the GSBuilders team on speed dial and never hesitate to call. Chris, Nicoleta, and William all made it clear to me from the start that they were willing to help at every turn, but sometimes I didn?t reach out because I didn?t want to be a bother. MISTAKE! It became clear that transparent and regular communication made everyone?s lives easier. The team always got back to me within hours if not minutes and was happy to be in the loop. A connected team is an empowered team. 4. Stop by the office.  The espresso is hot and strong and you may even come on a birthday and get a cupcake! In any case, you?ll get a warm welcome and all the support you need to navigate your renovation. Thank you to the whole GSBuilders family for your love and support in this journey. I?m eternally grateful for you all!

Uwe worked with us to design our dream kitchen. His extensive knowledge of home remodeling and cabinet making allowed for a custom solution at a comparable cost to Lowe's or Home Depot but with the features I wanted and no filler. Uwe worked with us on design, walked us through the inspection process, demolished the old kitchen, facilitated coordination with a gas contractor, stone mason, and flooring installer, provided a trusted electrician and plumber, and using appliances, fixtures, etc. that we provided, gave us a beautiful new kitchen. Specific tasks accomplished included: Design assistance and consulting Project management Demolition and removal Cabinet construction (35 pieces incl. and island) Additional lighting Fan Hood and make-up air installation Plumbing and Electrical Painting Tile Backsplash Appliance installation

ATW Herren Construction
Wade and his crew are great to work with. The work was performed on schedule and on budget, and as I continued to add projects they were willing to be flexible. Also, the subcontractors Wade uses are top-notch. This was the second project he has done for me and I highly recommend T.W. Herren Construction.

AKAYTON ENTERPRISES LLC
Seamless work with major steps daily that showed great improvement at each task. From beginning to end, the work was professional, and I was informed at the end of the day what was done and what was next. The pace was consistent and even the demolition at the beginning was an education in how an operation should run. The required big messes were swept away before the day's work ended.

ARemodel America Inc
After purchasing a house that needed quite a bit of updating, we were on the quest for the perfect contractor.  After interviewing several companies, we came across Remodel America.   The owner, Javier, came out himself and met with us.  We were extremely impressed with his professionalism, vast knowledge, and ability to communicate to us exactly what needed to be done.  The same day we met with Javier, he sent us drawings of possible configurations for our dream bathroom. He sat on the phone with us and really listened to what we wanted and did whatever he could do accommodate us.  He also drew our attention to things/issues we otherwise wouldn't have thought of.  We changed the layout several times, but they never seemed to get frustrated.  They were genuinely concerned that we were getting exactly what we wanted. His entire team was courteous and respectful the entire time they were working in our house.  We have two small children, which often complicates construction, but they worked with us and everything went very smoothly.  Any questions or concerns we ever had were promptly answered and addressed. Our new master bathroom is amazing!  Exactly what we wanted.  I would definitely hire Remodel America again and can't wait to have them update our kitchen!

AJav Remodeling
From beginning to end, JAV performed above all expectations! Absolutely superb! When Alex Louh from JAV informed us that he would finish this project within two months, we were skeptical given the scope of work to be completed. However, from the start of the demolition (existing roof and framing) to rebuild, county approvals and finishing, JAV completed the different phases of the project very timely and with utmost quality. JAV kept us informed on a daily basis of progress made, planning and decisions impacting the project. Alex is a very experienced builder who completed our addition and kitchen remodel within set timeline, highest quality and within budget. I would highly recommend JAV Remodeling to anyone in the Washington Metro area who wants to complete a renovation, addition or remodel.

DMaster in Building
We received an estimate for this to be an 8 week project beginning on 3 May. We just finished on 12/10/10. This was one of the most poorly planned projects I have ever seen. It was supposed to be done the end of June, but they hadn't even ordered the carpet by the end of June. We had picked out the carpet we wanted in May, but they never asked for it. Then when they asked and we gave them what we wanted, they said it would take a month to get it and they tried to get us to order carpet from them. We finally picked out different carpet from Home Depot, but it didn't arrive until August. Then they hadn't ordered enough, so we waited another 2 weeks. Then they just ordered the piece that they were short and the dye lot didn't match. So we had them take it all out and reorder carpet again. Of course, it was another month before it was installed. We had asked for upgraded padding, and they brought in scraps that weren't even the same thickness. We insisted they bring in new padding and they did. They finally got the carpet installed, but it's not quality carpet laying. The carpet isn't pulled tight and you can see the wrinkles in it. Then they came in to do the final close-out, and they didn't put down a drop cloth. They left 3 stains on the carpet. We finally settled on a credit for that. They said it would need a deep cleaning, and they didn't want to spot clean it. The project manager was rarely seen. His voice mail box was full, so you couldn't leave him a voice mail. He would show up at 7:00 in the evening to see what the sub contractors had done during the day. There was no supervision of the workers. They worked very dirty. They threw trash in the yard including in a tree stump in the yard. They didn't put down drop cloths. There was linoleum flooring on the basement floor which we wanted carpeted, so they just dropped dry wall mud all over the floor and never cleaned it up. When they put the HVAC in the attic, they broke a hole through our ceiling and left the broken dry wall all over our living room. They cut the exterior door from a single to a double door, but they didn't cut it right and they were never able to properly install the door. They finally gave us a credit for it, but it was a specially ordered Andersen door that we had bought and they damaged the door, and it still doesn't fit right. They acknowledged that the frame wasn't cut big enough, but that would have required removing the door and recutting the space which was brick, and they weren't willing to do it. The HVAC was a nightmare all of its own. They told us they needed an 8 x 8 inch space in our closet for a duct. I told them I didn't want to lose the closet and should we consider ductless heat. They assured me it would only be an 8 x 8 inch duct. Well, it's about 3 ft by 3 ft, and I can now only hang 2 coats in the closet. They offered to build another closet, but there was no room in the house to build one. They also said they would enlarge the ducts into the upstairs family room so that it would be adequately heated and cooled. But they didn't do it, and when we had them come back, they acknowledged that there wasn't room for larger ducts. They resolved that by putting a ductless unit in the upstairs family room. We agreed to split the cost of that with them. I want to state that none of this mess was our fault. There were no changes of scope on our part. It was all just their own poor planning and poor workmanship. It almost always took multiple phone calls to get a response. We are still waiting on the final documentation of the project. In the end, they tried to do the right thing by giving us credit to address the outstanding issues, but this whole project was a terrible experience, and there was no reason for it to be. This was a straightforward job that, if managed and supervised properly, and constructed by skilled tradesmen, should not have been a problem.

Perfection!  From the estimate to the scheduling to advice on the material selection to cleanliness to quality of work--I can't say enough about these guys.  Fantastic.  They were not the cheapest estimate I received but I was familiar with the quality of their work through friends and they did not disappoint.  A few things I particularly appreciated: 1) We have small kids.  They went to GREAT lengths, without being asked, to keep the house safe and clean while they worked.  They did a lead test to make sure there was no lead paint (there wasn't) and sealed up everything just in case. Then they completely cleaned up every day when they were done. 2)Angel told me at the beginning when they planned to start, but he was able to do the demolition a little early to coincide with our vacation.   3) Angel gave me advice on what tiles were appropriate for the job without being pushy.

AMichael Nash Design Build & Homes
The overall project went over the estimated timeline, but we are happy with the final result.  We initially asked for quotes from 3 other companies, and none would provide the amount of work (with extras like the additional HVAC) and the quality of materials for the price Michael Nash quoted us.  Most of the others offered us builder-grade materials at that price range, and one even quoted a higher price than Michael Nash and did not include the work to build a new foundation.  There were no cost overruns or additional charges during construction, and every time there was an issue, they were flexible and worked with us to come to a solution.  In one situation, we requested a change to a key part of the floorplan while work was being done on that part of the house, and they were quickly able to make the change and it turned out great!

ADW Dively Construction
We met with Doug Dively to discuss what we wanted for our bathrooms.  He took the appropriate measurements and returned in about a week to review the plans with us and provided a budget worksheet. Prior to the job start, Doug walked through the plans with his crew so everyone knew what was expected.  The job started on time. We were kept informed of the schedule.  Doug met with us to assist us in selecting the fixtures needed for the bathrooms.  All of our items (tile, countertop etc) were selected prior to the demolition, delivered to our home so they were readily available for the crew to proceed with the job. We decided to have both bathrooms done at the same time, which saved us time and money. Doug's crew was very good at keeping us informed of the progress.  We only had one issue - we selected a larger tub than was previously in the room.  We decided we did not like the original layout for the new tub - but Doug and his crew were very good at quickly working a new solution.  We have been very pleased with the quality of the workmanship, the attention to detail and the concern that our home was protected during the job.

The construction project went a lot better and smoother than expected. The principle at US Builders, Cyrus, is a German licensed architect with deep knowledge of the latest and greatest construction methodologies and best practices. As such, our worries about such humongous project was put to rest at an early stage. Cyrus provided various options for both quality and cost in a timely manner and made the correct recommendations when we needed help.  The project consisted of exterior and interior architectural elements and build outs. The project was completed in a timely manner ahead of schedule and slightly over budget. At about 5% above budget we were happy campers! We would do business with Cyrus again and again if the choice was given.

CQEI Construction
First I can not fault the contractor for his mannerism.  Although I did not find him to be professional at all times he is a very mannerly individual.  The problem with the service provided was that he made several changes to original plans w/o consulting us and the changes did not meet our requirements. On top of that he ran over cost which I would not have minded if our needs were actually met.  Everything that he actually subcontracted out was done wonderfully.  The heating/cooling system is amazing and the people who put it in were wonderful.  The plumbing was actually subcontracted out to one of our family members who is a plumber and that was done well.  The brick mason that did the work on the side of the house did a wonderful job.  The things that the contractor did himself were not done well.  The kitchen cabinets placed were not my approved and signed off design.  I asked for a particular size appliances and I only got one of them.  The kitchen space is super small so I wanted slim line appliances,  The only one I got was the 24 inch stove.  Yet I still ended up paying over estimated cost for appliances and cabinetry that did not meet my requirements.  I needed a tall toilet for the bathroom.  When we moved in and started using the bathroom we realized the toilet was a nice height.  He switched it out claiming the new toilet was the same height yet the new toilet is not only shorter than the old but it is cheaper material then the old toilet.  He left marks on the new toilet from grinding down nails and when told to him he told me to use a scrub pad on it.  The bathroom sink was suppose to be taller than the normal sink this was totally over looked and not done. I found the contractor to be cheap in the work he did himself.  And sneakly put things in place before we were able to disapprove or comment on suitability.   While I appreciate watching cost in the end we still ended up paying more for services that were not satisfactory.  Most of all work that was suppose to be done in 14-21 days extended into a four month period.  When asked about all of these problems he does a good job of trying to calm you without taking blame for his below par performance.  I would opt for maybe a more experience contractor the next time or to just do it myself.  If I had to use him again I would make sure he hired all subcontractors to do all of the work.  I would be willing to pay the higher price than have him do the work himself.

In the fall of 2014 we set out to hire a general contractor to perform a complete gut and remodel of our cooperative apartment kitchen.  The space was original to this 1966 structure and was in dire need of some TLC.  We had been planning for well over a year before we even started looking for a contractor, so we had a very good idea on the design and didn't need any help in that arena. We opted to go with Green Studio Builders (GSB) for a couple of reasons.  The first is that we saw their work first hand in another apartment within our building and we were very impressed with the craftsmanship especially considering the complexities of that project.  Our project was similarly complex and it was reassuring to know that they had experience to tackle more than the run of the mill project. It's also nice to work with a contractor that already knows the building, the management staff, the rules and regulations, etc. The second reason was the result of our interaction with the owner of the company during his onsite visit to our apartment during the assessment phase.  One could describe Chris as passionate.  During the walkthrough he was a terrific listener and clearly was able to grasp the intensity of the project. The project consisted of gutting a 20' x 12' kitchen right down to the studs and concrete sub floor, removing walls between the kitchen and living room, walls between the kitchen and dining room as well as a wall between the living room and dining room.  We were going for an open concept and amidst that there was re-routing of trunk phone lines for apartments above and below us as well as a thermostat relocation. Work began in February and completed 4 months later in June.  We were assigned an operations manager and supervisor to the project.  Between them they were to coordinate all of the onsite activities.   Despite the assigned leadership, I assure you that I was keeping a strict eye on the project at all times.  We were not about to part with this kind of money with no personal oversite regardless of GSB?s reputation.  While the project was a huge success, I assure you that there were several conversations throughout the project to have minor elements corrected or to re-educate the crew members on the expectations of the project elements.  This type of open communication was vital and GSB?s entire crew was excellent at following through on my every concern without ever making us feel like we were overbearing. The demolition was completed in two phases; the first was an early prep to remove the old cabinetry and appliances to prepare the space for the asbestos abatement company (with whom we were expected to contract independently with).  Once the asbestos abatement was complete, GSB returned immediately to resume with phase two of the demolition where they removed the walls.  During this process our apartment was thoroughly draped to try and contain the dust and protection was laid on our hard wood floors to protect them from damage.  The debris was removed from the apartment in a timely manner.  With demolition complete, the new walls were framed and GSB coordinated for the electrical and plumbing sub-contractors to complete the necessary work.  The walls were then drywalled, mudded, sanded and primed.  GSB then installed the floor tile absolutely perfectly.  They followed through on my pattern flawlessly and the installer took great care to insure a proper installation.  We opted for long and narrow tiles and if the thinset underneath is not perfect it can cause future cracking , the installer took his time to ensure our complete satisfaction.  GSB did a great job of coordinating the timeliness of the subcontractor for cabinet delivery and installation. One of our longest delays followed cabinet installation.  We opted to go through GSB and their subcontractor for countertop installation and had already selected out stone, but there were several breakdowns in communication which resulted in a couple week delay.  While this was a sore subject for a few days, I assure you that GSB took complete ownership of the issue and made the situation right in a way that was agreeable to both us and them.  We never expected the project to be easy, but when snags do occur you need an organization that will own up to their promises and GSB did exactly that. Backsplash tile installation followed the countertop install.  Good news is that GSB sent the same crew back and like the floor work, the tile was installed exactly to specifications.  Once this was complete, GSB coordinated the final electrical and plumbing work as well as painting.  The operations manager came onsite for a physical assessment and the creation of a punch list of final to do?s and those tasks were completed expeditiously. We have enjoyed out new kitchen now for just shy of two months and every day we are appreciative of the fine work that was done to bring us to this point.  We recommend GSB and their crew.

Our experience working with Matt was extremely positive and couldn't have been any better. After a series of costly and frustrating encounters with unlicensed/fraudulent contractors, we conducted extensive research into more than half-a-dozen contractors, before we finally found Matt at Sycamore Homes. Time and time again, we were very impressed with Matt's integrity, technical competence, resourcefulness, and timeliness during each phase of this year-long project. His design advice was superb. His complete focus on our project, and his great attention to detail was unsurpassed. He showed a genuine willingness to listen to our concerns and took our suggestions on specific material and design choices on board, often after conducting his own research and discussing pros and cons with us. He stayed on schedule and within budget throughout the entire project. His core crew became almost part of our family. The final result has far exceeded our expectations in terms of craftsmanship, stylistic points, and finish. Equally important, we are sure that we are living in a house so well constructed that it will last the test of time. Judging by the frequent compliments of neighbors and passers-by, the house that Matt built for us is a much-welcomed improvement to our community, both a joy to look at and to live in.

AMickey Simpson Ltd Architects - Builders
We started with a 1950's ranch style home on a corner lot in the Rosemont neighborhood of Alexandria.  The house was a 1-level, 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom home with little more than 1100 sq. ft. and a good size lot for the neighborhood.  We ended up with a 5 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom craftsman style house with an open floor plan, beautiful kitchen, wonderful interior detail, attached garage, and finished basement.  Initially, we intended to add on to the existing house by adding a 2nd floor and an expansion on the side of the house. After many variations of this plan, we eventually decided to start from scratch, design a new house, tear down the original house and build a brand new house for a number of reasons, mainly to have a finished basement as the existing home had no basement.  We hired Mickey Simpson Builders (MSB) to complete the project from start to finish.  We interviewed a handful of other well known companies but decided on MSB because of their reputation, quality of work, style of previous projects, professionalism, and overall feeling of how we could work together.  Our initial meeting included a site visit from Clarke, the vice president, to benefit both sides.  From Clarke's point of view he needed to understand our scope of work, expectations, budget etc. and from our side we needed to understand the company's process from start to finish, if our expectations were out of whack, where our budget would take us, etc.  Overall, we felt comfortable with MSB and decided to hire them immediately after the first meeting.  After making the decision to go with MSB we paid their initial design fee and started to work on basic concepts, style of the house we wanted, etc.  There were multiple designs that were proposed by MSB and after a few meetings with input from both sides we narrowed down the overall design and Clarke put together a contract with the total $ amount needed.  We agreed on the contract, signed on the dotted line and started the project.  All the plans were drawn up by MSB and eventually approved by the city after many many months of waiting (not unusual in Alexandria we learned).  Once the house was demolished we got to know our project manager Charlie, Wayne our plumber, Mario the electrician, and various other folks from MSB's crew of sub-contractors. Charlie did a wonderful job managing the project.  During the entire build process we would check on the house occasionally to see the progress, but we never felt compelled to micromanage to know if things were getting done.  This was key for us as we felt comfortable enough with MSB and its crew that they would handle everything in a timely manner and only need our input if there was a major decision or problem.  Along the way we made all of our selections for the options on the house such as roof material, flooring, fixtures, appliances, kitchen cabinets, tiling, etc.  MSB does recommend higher end products but we had no problem with this as our tendency on this project was to upgrade everything.  I only mention this because if we would have stuck to the original contract we would have hit our mark for the budget proposed- all of the upgrades not included were our decision. Even though the project took more time and money than expected it was well worth it and we are ecstatic about the home MSB has built for us.  Our experience and relationship with MSB was top notch and continues months after the project has been completed.

Matt Webb is easy to work with, listens and communicates well, always has constructive and creative ideas, and is very sensitive and responsive to the owners preferences. Matt Webb and crew always did excellent quality work. When he subcontracted areas of work he would shop for best price from known subcontractors he had worked with previously. He always gave the owner options of doing more and making timely changes. He always was very conscious of energy savings and used materials and insulation which allowed a very efficient energy use house with many convenient features like a hot water circulation system which allows hot water to be readily available around the entire house. After living in the house for 2 months the energy used was about 20 % less than the old house used at the same time of year. This was a reduction of about 60% energy use since the old house was half the size of the new house.

It was a single family detached colonial with a three-story addition on the back-side of the house.  In 2010, I was told by a county inspector that the addition was un-permitted.

Once I had, I hired an engineer and architect to draft rough plans to inform estimates. Enter GSBuilders. When I met with Chris for the initial walk-through of my home, he was sympathetic, attentive, and optimistic.

Nicoleta spent hours helping me coordinate finishes. She acted as my designer at no extra charge. even making trips to tile stores and walking me through other finished project sites (with owner's permission) for inspiration. Nicoleta has a generous heart, exquisite taste, and great strategies for creating beautiful spaces on a budget. I also owe a debt of gratitude to William Reyes, the foreman assigned to my project. When Chris and Nicoleta had to tend to a family crisis of their own, William stepped in and held my hand through every step of the project through completion. Every renovation has its hiccups and I always knew I could count on William (Mr. William as I took to calling him because he always called me Miss Pamela) to come up with a great solution that would keep the project on track. In some cases the obstacles became opportunities for improvement! I couldn?t have asked for better. I could write for pages and pages about the specific ways in which GSBuilders saved my house and my sanity. Thanks to Chris and Nicoleta, my grief over this unexpected financial blow has become delight in my beautiful home.  I am forever grateful and cannot recommend their services highly enough. I can, however, offer individuals venturing into a project with GSBuilders some advice that will make everyone?s life easier. 1. Start your project with GSBuilders from the drafting stage. My only regret is that I didn?t find and work with GSBuilders and their engineers and architects from the start. They have a well-coordinated team and the quality of the work for the price can?t be beat. Save yourself the headaches and trust them with it ALL! 2. Know the specifics of your budget and start collecting photos of spaces and finishes you love. Nicoleta can work magic within your preferred style and budget, especially if you have specific price points for finishes and have a clear aesthetic. And even if you don't, Nicoleta will help you figure it out. That is tremendous added value. 3. Keep the GSBuilders team on speed dial and never hesitate to call. Chris, Nicoleta, and William all made it clear to me from the start that they were willing to help at every turn, but sometimes I didn?t reach out because I didn?t want to be a bother. MISTAKE! It became clear that transparent and regular communication made everyone?s lives easier. The team always got back to me within hours if not minutes and was happy to be in the loop. A connected team is an empowered team. 4. Stop by the office.  The espresso is hot and strong and you may even come on a birthday and get a cupcake! In any case, you?ll get a warm welcome and all the support you need to navigate your renovation. Thank you to the whole GSBuilders family for your love and support in this journey. I?m eternally grateful for you all!

His extensive knowledge of home remodeling and cabinet making allowed for a custom solution at a comparable cost to Lowe's or Home Depot but with the features I wanted and no filler. Uwe worked with us on design, walked us through the inspection process, demolished the old kitchen, facilitated coordination with a gas contractor, stone mason, and flooring installer, provided a trusted electrician and plumber, and using appliances, fixtures, etc. that we provided, gave us a beautiful new kitchen. Specific tasks accomplished included: Design assistance and consulting Project management Demolition and removal Cabinet construction (35 pieces incl. and island) Additional lighting Fan Hood and make-up air installation Plumbing and Electrical Painting Tile Backsplash Appliance installation

TW Herren Construction
Recent Review: Wade and his crew are great to work with. The work was performed on schedule and on budget, and as I continued to add projects they were willing to be flexible. Also, the subcontractors Wade uses are top-notch. This was the second project he has done for me and I highly recommend T.W. Herren Construction.

Recent Review: Seamless work with major steps daily that showed great improvement at each task. From beginning to end, the work was professional, and I was informed at the end of the day what was done and what was next. The pace was consistent and even the demolition at the beginning was an education in how an operation should run. The required big messes were swept away before the day's work ended.

Remodel America Inc
Recent Review: After purchasing a house that needed quite a bit of updating, we were on the quest for the perfect contractor.  After interviewing several companies, we came across Remodel America.   The owner, Javier, came out himself and met with us.  We were extremely impressed with his professionalism, vast knowledge, and ability to communicate to us exactly what needed to be done.  The same day we met with Javier, he sent us drawings of possible configurations for our dream bathroom. He sat on the phone with us and really listened to what we wanted and did whatever he could do accommodate us.  He also drew our attention to things/issues we otherwise wouldn't have thought of.  We changed the layout several times, but they never seemed to get frustrated.  They were genuinely concerned that we were getting exactly what we wanted. His entire team was courteous and respectful the entire time they were working in our house.  We have two small children, which often complicates construction, but they worked with us and everything went very smoothly.  Any questions or concerns we ever had were promptly answered and addressed. Our new master bathroom is amazing!  Exactly what we wanted.  I would definitely hire Remodel America again and can't wait to have them update our kitchen!

Jav Remodeling
Recent Review: From beginning to end, JAV performed above all expectations! Absolutely superb! When Alex Louh from JAV informed us that he would finish this project within two months, we were skeptical given the scope of work to be completed. However, from the start of the demolition (existing roof and framing) to rebuild, county approvals and finishing, JAV completed the different phases of the project very timely and with utmost quality. JAV kept us informed on a daily basis of progress made, planning and decisions impacting the project. Alex is a very experienced builder who completed our addition and kitchen remodel within set timeline, highest quality and within budget. I would highly recommend JAV Remodeling to anyone in the Washington Metro area who wants to complete a renovation, addition or remodel.

Humans always remodel. Demolition companies can take down everything from a single room to an entire house. 

What is Demolition?

Contrary to myth, demolition is not the wholesale destruction of a building. It's a controlled deconstruction, often with a touch of finesse. Many demolition companies salvage building parts, wood, furnishings and appliances before using heavy equipment to tear apart roofs, walls, and foundations. 

More modest demolition services may be needed to tear out old kitchen cabinets and counter tops. This work might be done entirely by hand, with sledgehammers and crowbars. 

What are the Costs of Demolition Near Me?

The price to demolish an entire house is $4 to $15 per square foot.

The Two Biggest Factors:

  • Site location and ease of access — In rural areas or with a lot of property, big equipment can move around easily
  • Home material — Brick and concrete are far harder to demolish than wood 

Expect to pay more for deconstruction, in which the demolition company takes the house or room apart for salvage or reuse. 

How Do I Hire A Demolition Company?

Select a demolition company near you that handles the type of job you have: garage, whole house, swimming pool, etc. Get several price quotes with specifics for deconstruction, carting, and cleanup. For some jobs, commercial haulers or general contractors handle demolition. Use local companies to increase trust. Clarify who will obtain the necessary permits.
