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.
Repaired railing and handrail on rear of home. Responded very quickly to my inquiry. Was knowledgeable about the project, had fair pricing and listened to my concerns. Job was completed within a week. During first meeting, settled on work to be done, schedule and project. The night of the project, it rained so there were a few touch ups needed and they came back the very next day and finished the work. Highly recommended.
I have never encountered a better contractor than Arnold at Vintage. His professionalism, knowledge of the project: handrail, railings, stair rails - wood with wrought iron tines - was impressive, as was the quality of his work. On time arrival on project, cleaned during the work, and finished earlier than expected with stunning results. He went above and beyond when he offered help in two non-project home repairs I was doing myself. I was truly moved by his kindness as I'm working to put our home on the market. Working with contractors is usually stressful, but not with Arnold and assistant, Marlon. Loved them, absolutely highly recommend them.
J.CRUZ handrails services, we make railing, fences, gates and all kinds of residential or commercial iron works.
Steve installed handrails on my exterior steps and does great work for a good value! He was kind enough to give me advice on other jobs too, even ones he would refer me to other professionals to do the work. A true professional!
Jack came highly recommended from my friends in MONA (mom's group). I had a huge list of fix-it items throughout the house and he fixed every single one. He was on time, friendly, able to see me within a week, charged a fair price, and even cleaned up after he was finished. He replaced 3 light fixtures, fixed 2 leaky faucets, removed molding and caulked/sanded, fixed a doorknob, and a window lock in the bathroom- all in 3 hours. Amazing. He also gave me contact info for another issue we had with our HVAC and roof. We are so lucky to have Jack in our Rolodex of top notch helpers. He is so highly qualified and I highly recommend him!
Callie, Randy, and Andy were great to work with! Callie is super personable and easy to coordinate everything with. Randy and Andy were great craftsmen who spent extra time and effort to make sure our project was completed to perfection. Our project was to install two sets of handrails in our old, historic home. Along the way we ran into a few snags - steel studs, light switches in the way, the wrong size ballasters. The guys took care of each obstacle professionally and timely. Once the railings were all said and done, we noticed that one of the posts needed a finishing touch. Randy came all the way out again just to do a finishing touch that took 3 minutes. The railings look amazing - very classy. We will definitely use these guys again for our under stair storage project. Thanks Parz Designs!
