jose salazar worked with the utmost professionalism. he answered all my questions patiently. never pressured me to pay for more work and was willing to give me more time to think about my chimney repair and come back a later time. i wanted to give him a tip but he refused even though he very well deserved it. very kind and polite as well
I have worked with the owner of this company for several years and I have come to know him very well. I am very pleased that he has started his own business to ensure that the quality this difficult and important work meets his high standards. Maintaining a clean chimney is more than just aesthetic; it is extremely dangerous to have a chimney filled with creosote and I have seen the damage it can cause first hand. Finding an expert in this field is difficult and unreliable. I trust DMV chimney and repair.
Walt from Eagle Homeimprovements came out to my house,he fixed several plumbing issues. Was very knowledgeable about the work and his pricing was great. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs plumbing repairs done or any other work he's a general contractor. Thank you Walt for all your help. Great guy to work with you will not regret hiring his services.
Thomas was very knowledgeable and thorough in his inspection. We were confident in his recommendations. The chimney cleaning was quick and efficient. Our house was left clean and tidy when they were finished. Thanks, Thomas and Chim Chim Churee!
I'm extremely happy with the service I received from SNG Chimney Sweep. I needed my brick chimney repaired because some bricks had fallen off and other bricks were loose and a large section of bricks were missing mortar between the bricks. Also the chimney did not have a chimney cap. Scott put me in touch with an employee named Gary who came quickly and evaluated the scope of the work, and who then gave use a price for the work. We were happy with the price and within a few days Gary and another employee came and completed the work. The repair looks fantastic, and so does the chimney cap. I would definitely recommend SNG Chimney Sweep to anyone looking for any chimney work.
Luis contacted me immediately and set a time to come to my house to look at the fence and determine the amount of work to be done. He showed up on time and provided a quick estimate. The day of the work, he arrived when he said he would, worked quickly, and made repairs to fix several sections of our split rail fence. When he completed, we walked through to look at the work. I recommend Luis and plan to work with him again.
Months ago, I looked for someone to do a small painting project on Thumbtack. And I ended up with a brand new home. Christian, Jessica, Hector and the rest of the team at 5th Gen Group honestly do miracles. We own a 100+ year old row home in Washington DC and we've had problems ever since we moved in five years ago. After dealing with four different contractors that left me unsatisfied, I tried Thumbtack (at that time, new in the DC area). Christian came out to do an estimate and I was impressed by him from the get go - as a woman, I hate when contractors act like I'm stupid or uninformed. Christian never did that, and he answered all my questions respectfully and thoroughly and would defer to my wishes. We initially contracted for a gut remodel of our ancient kitchen and leaking bathroom. Christian's professional opinion was heavily appreciated as well as his vision - he instantly "got" the feel of a space and spent a lot of time listening to not only what we wanted, but how we would use the space and what we planned for the house in the future. Of course, the best laid plans always go awry - we knew our house had a few "handyman specials" but once Christian opened up the floor in the kitchen, we realized we were really in for it. Down there was a hidden mess of rotting wires, missing piping, garbage from the last renovations, and rotted-out beams. Overnight, our budget doubled. I personally wanted to die. But Christian calmly lead us through the process, helped us try to salvage our murdered budget, and focused on explaining the trade-off in home values. We ended up with an additional half bath downstairs (because really, what was another 5K at that point?), brand new kitchen (with a small bar!) a brand new stairwell and relocated laundry room, and a brand new bathroom with a shower (after 5 years of an ancient leaking cast iron tub). Christian isn't completely perfect - he's totally a perfectionist, and if you are one too, be prepared for some long conversations. There is an epic texting exchange over the bathroom tile that I may print out just to see how long it really was. But that's about the only thing. Also, for the other ladies on here- I always hate opening my home to someone because I have had bad experiences with contractors who were, at best, creepy. Christian and Hector were completely professional, and they really went the extra mile to make sure I always knew who would be in the house, when they would arrive, and how to reach both of them. Christian also has a lot of loyalty and integrity toward his clients - he is always fair, both in pricing and in the treatment of your home. He broke a small appliance - the only reason I knew was because he called me when he was purchasing an (upgraded) replacement on his own dime. All renovations are hard projects, long projects, and frequently frustrating. There was definitely a day when I wanted to kill Christian for sending me out to two different quarries in far out Virginia right around rush around. But when I stepped into my home for the first time, I couldn't stop smiling. And when we finally scrape together the budget for a third floor extension, I know exactly who I am calling.
Great experience with Justin! Scheduling was easy. He gave us an hour window for the appt and showed up right on time. He was quick, very professional and helped us learn how to use our gas fireplace. The repair also includes a 1-year warranty. Fireplace is very clean and working perfectly! Would definitely call Justin again in the future.
Gary and his team at Dulles Solid Construction built a beautiful addition to my house. I was impressed with the craftsmanship, the quality of work and professionalism they showed throughout the whole process. Gary was very responsive from the beginning and the work was done on schedule. I highly recommend Dulles Solid for any type of home remodeling or building services. Thanks for the outstanding work!
George was great. Very responsive, did a great job, made sure he protected our carpets while cleaning our chimney. He is by far the cheapest out there, but you don't suffer in quality of service. I highly encourage you to use George.
I hired Antonio (Tony) Sanchez from Renaissance Restoration to complete a kitchen renovation this past fall (sorry I did not get around to completing this review sooner!). I did all the demolition, but the job included lights and electrical, plumbing repair, cabinet and counter top install, appliance install, and painting. Tony gave a very reasonable estimate and personally worked on my project with his assistant from start to finish as opposed to having one of his employees complete the job. As he began the job, he soon realized that virtually nothing from the original construction was square (townhouse was built in 1987). However, that did not phase him as he had the skills to adjust making those imperfections unnoticeable in the end. In addition, Tony has skills in most of the trades which meant that he did not have to sub different parts of the job out; he did all the electrical, plumbing and carpentry himself. The best part of my experience working with Tony was that he discussed and explained different options or ways of completing a task to ensure there were no surprises, and I was impressed with his willingness to even teach me a little along the way. He was flexible in allowing me to have a friend install the tile floor and was understanding of my need to stick to a rather tight budget. There are only two comments I could make for overall improvement: cleanliness and timeliness. On a couple of occasions, I had to discard empty food containers and drinks that had been left behind. I attributed this to oversight and could be easily improved by making an effort to clean up the work site after each day of work. Considering it was not a space I was using though, it was not that big of a deal. As for timeliness, the project took longer than expected to complete. However, I know that my involvement did have some impact on the schedule and the fact he was doing the work himself while still managing other jobs is a factor. I would not hesitate to bring Tony in for another project in the future. I am completely satisfied with his work and would recommend him to anyone.
Raul and his team did an fantastic job completing three masonry projects at our house. They replaced an old wooden terrace with a beautiful stone terrace complete with attached stairs, built new stairs leading from our driveway to our fence gate, and repaired our front walkway and steps. Raul's workmanship is excellent, he works efficiently, and he quoted us a very fair price. I also appreciated his clear communication and tidy work style. Before completing the project today, Raul ensured we were 100% satisfied with the work. I highly recommend Raul and would absolutely use his services again.
Had Colonial come in for a second opinion and it turned out that the first opinion was overcharging us. We only needed to have a liner installed in our furnace flue and not both. I dealt with CJ & Chris and they were great. The day of install they had to come a bit later than planned due to another install job but they called and let us know. When they went to install the liner it turned out they needed another piece and had to leave to get it but they came back and finished the job, cleaned up, and were super professional the whole time. They even patched up some loose bricks in our fireplace with some left over cement from the chimney cap they replaced at no extra charge, which was awesome on their part. They took pictures to show us everything they did and it was great. If you deal with Colonial I highly recommend CJ and Chris, they made this a painless pleasurable repair experience.
Al and his team were extremely professional. He was able to provide extremely good and comparable pricing, as well as a reasonable timeline to finish the job. He was always reachable and great with recommendations on preventative measures on roof repairs. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family, and would hire him again if the need required.
Manuel and his team did a great job of getting our townhouse move-in ready including building a pantry, installing hardwood, refinishing hardwood in another area, patching drywall, painting, and replacing electrical outlets and an old fuse box. Manuel kept me informed of how the job was going via text while I was at work, and was very careful to make sure everything was as we wanted it. His prices were extremely reasonable and he and his team worked quickly so that we could move in on time.
The company moved my boiler pipes in the basement to make way for a new exterior door. The work was fast and professional. The price was higher than I expected, however, multiple companies simply refused to do the job, at any price. The company coordinated with my remodelers, which was a great help. Again, many other HVAC companies I approached for an estimate told me that they just didn't do remodeling jobs, only repair and service. Overall, I'm glad I found David and ComfortFactor and I will keep them in mind for my future HVAC needs.
Our stairs in front of the house are brick over concrete and cinder blocks. The cinder blocks started to disintegrate, so the bricks started to crumble on top. Gabriel came and provided pictures and ideas based on our description. Gabriel was very polite provided a very good estimate on the work. He finished the work on time. The steps look great. We are extremely excited about how the steps turned out and the quality of Gabriel's and his company's work. We would definitely recommend him to others and would use him for any other masonry work we have in the future.
This company gets an A plus rating. They communicate well. He was on time with our appointment. I was very pleased with the work that was done and I received a little chimney maintenance education. I would recommend this company to my family and friends.
Over the course of 2 days, Ted and one assistant helped us with lots of projects around our house, including re-attachment of a tile in our bathroom, installation of a new bathroom fan, re-caulking/grouting in our shower, re-attachment of a mantle to the wall, insertion of foam insulation/caulking to repair our chimney, re-attachment of tiles on our front walkway, dishwasher repair, and more. Ted was very punctual, professional, and easy to talk to and work with. He seems to be very knowledgeable about home repairs and it was really helpful to have him around right when we moved into our new home. We asked for a lot of help and Ted delivered - he got everything done (between him and one other person). Overall, we're glad we hired Ted and plan to use him again in the future!
I dealt with Brian through the whole thing and he was awesome. Brian was very nice, showed up on time, explained everything very well and took care of the problem. It was stress-free and the price was good. I would recommend this company to anyone!
He was available on short notice; used a time+materials method rather than a fixed job bid; was reasonably affordable and concerned about my final cost so was expedient about both time and materials; paced himself diligently about his work, worked 8 hrsX2 days with just 1/2 hr lunch. This I liked. A couple of other comments: Did not have a preprinted contract form with company letterhead; did not have bonding/ insurance info readily available( that should be automatic for a trades contract, imo); what I thought I needed and asked for in my non-pro view differed from his solution so my questions and concerns mid-job seemed to annoy (could be me looking over his shoulder). Overall, Paul’s work fixed my deck, my house and my door project for reasonable cost. It may not be the prettiest solution but effective and works for me so I won’t complain. Good job. My impression of Paul was that he is a salt of the earth tradesman with confident skills using hand held power tools and getting a job done. I would suggest to anyone hiring that they talk to Paul if they want their job done smoothly.
