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.
I was looking to get a built-in desk and bookshelf installed and Patrick was absolutely the person to go to. He patiently talked through my plans with me, which went through multiple iterations. He was the best kind of thought partner, which was exactly what I needed, and executed my plans perfectly. He took care to make sure everything was to the highest standard, and the final product is incredible. He was also incredibly honest - I had gotten burned by a contractor before and he went out of his way to make sure the experience, and payment, was positive for me. He's wonderful, and I'm looking forward to working with him again to get other built-ins installed. I can't recommend him enough.
I highly recommend the design services provided by Trait Interior’s Kelley Rucker. Decorating can be stressful, but Kelley made it as stress free as possible with her down-to-earth approach, positive outlook, up-beat personality, eager nature, and responsive communication. Kelley is one of the kindest people I have had the pleasure of knowing. She treated me like a friend instead of a client. She looked out for me every step of the way and had my best interest at heart during our consultation, shopping trips, and design implementation. Kelley listened intently, did her research, and took immediate action. She was ready to hit the ground running! It was refreshing that Kelley came up with a plan to tackle my design issues, sent me a course of action, and delivered. She even drove me around town during the shopping sessions and used her creative thinking and determination to overfill her car with large shopping items. She was right there at the store taking items apart and putting them back together at my home. Kelley was also accommodating and generous with her time and suggestions. Additionally, she is cost conscious and value oriented. If you have a budget, she will stick to it! Kelley loves what she does and her excitement for her work is infectious. No one else I spoke with showed the same kind of enthusiasm for my project as Kelley did. It’s important to feel like you are a priority when you want to accomplish a project, and Kelley made me a priority. I believe Kelley offers free phone and in home consultations, so you have nothing to lose by giving her a call.
Carlos and his team were fast, efficient, and skilled! They were extremely professional and meticulous, painting both the home's interior and exterior, painting the decks, and power washing the home. They did a very thorough job! I will definitely hire them again for future painting and power washing needs and recommend them highly to anyone needing a reliable, skilled professional.
Replaced rotted siding boards, chimney trim, applied calking, and painted new install boards as needed, to blend in with original siding. Chris, was timely on his call backs, to me, on questions I had, made a reasonable quote for the work, verbally guaranteed, I would be satisfied before he left, and was on time on the day, to do the work, which was the day after I agreed on his price quote. To start on my work, he came prepared with all the supplies. Finished the work one hour ahead of time. Chris, calked(to waterproof) and painted a couple of other areas not really part of the work request, to better blend in with original siding at no extra charge to me. Prior to finding Chris though Tumbtack, I searched other independent contractors, not through Thumbtack only to find they were hard to reach, and not good about returning calls, or even keeping a date and time to come look at the work I needed done. I did speak with another contractor referred to me by Thumbtack who was very timely and polite, but troubled me, he would give a price quote without looking at the work to be done, which ,Chris did. I believe Thumbtack makes a good effort to offer only qualified, reputable and honest contractors. I find Thumbtack, Web site for submitting your work to be done request, being a senior, very easy and uncomplicated. Also, upon a response from a contractor, you have his/their contact info, phone number, business name etc, so you deal directly with them. For future work to be done on my home, I will call on Chris Mansour, and his company, Paniz Home Improvements LLC first. Thanks, Don
I needed a contractor to wall mount a 55" tv over a brick fireplace. The veteran owner were diligent and got the job done in a timely and efficient manner as well as concealing the wires behind the bricks. They also went beyond to clean the mess they created in their area of work. They provided me with a veteran discount for having a Navy Federal account on top of the already reasonable cost. My only complaint was they were not punctual. My appointment was between 3-5 and they showed up at 6 having to leave work early for no reason. Overall great experience.
Max & Donna helped my husband and me to make our decorating dreams come true. I am unable to go out and shop, etc. so it was a wonderful blessing to have them bring it all to us! They even made our dream of a downstairs "Great Room" happen! From concrete floors and 2 x 4 studs in the walls to beautiful tile floors, a stack stone fireplace and gorgeous window treatments -- well the list just goes on and this is now our favorite "retreat". Donna & Max worked closely with all their sources/resources to make things happen within budget, on time, what more could you possibly ask for? Thank you so very much Donna & Max for making our home such a delight to us!
I am thrilled with the results of my brand new kitchen! I couldn't have hired a better company to redesign my kitchen. They really listened and took their time in making sure everything was exactly the way I invisioned my kitchen to look. I have already told my family and friends who are looking to update their homes. Dream Home Contractors were wonderful to work with! Janice P.
I was absolutely blown away by the work that was done by Eliza & Edison, LLC. Amy Lucas was very accommodating and met me at a hotel where I was attending a conference as to minimize my travel time. She showed up on time and had prepared two notebooks, one for me and one for my painter. She had several selections ready in order to discuss colors for the rooms I had been unable to choose and we were able to narrow those down quickly. My painter was equally impressed with the folder she had prepared for him and that made our discussion on room colors much easier. I told her she was worth every penny I was paying her – a compliment that I do not make very often. Eliza & Edison are very professional, courtesy, and friendly. I would use them again and highly recommend them to anyone. Well, maybe not my enemies, I don’t want their house looking better than mine! (ha ha).
If you’re in need of a reliable, honest and get-it-done general contractor for your home remodeling needs, Al and his crew are the GO TO GUYS! We recently had a rather large basement remodel project where we took an unfinished space (approx.. 900 sq. feet) to a home office/ dental laboratory finish. There were a lot of moving parts involved – all new electrical/ mechanical/ plumbing; installation of egress & small sliding window(s), walk-out door w/ retaining walls and pavement; added bathroom & work/equipment room. Al took the design plans from a paper to presence, and really worked with us to stay on time and on budget. From the initial consultation, he took his time to go over details of the project and provide us with a written proposal on the spot. What was also appreciated was that he used upgraded materials rather than standard builder supplies, which really makes a huge difference in appearance! Al and his guys are meticulous, detailed & very clean – at the end of each work day, the floors were always swept & materials put away. Another consideration for us was trust since my husband & I weren’t home during the day. I can say with complete confidence that you can trust Premier Home Services to do their job, in your home without supervision. We will definitely use them again for our next home project. Thanks Al!
Paula has helped us with a variety of interior design projects throughout our entire house. While constructing our current house, Paula visualized placement of existing furniture, and helped select interior paint colors so transitioning from room to room was seamless. Once we moved in, she worked with us first to design our family room and kitchen. The results were stunning, and we get so many compliments. When we were ready, we moved on to the dining room and living room, where Paula helped select window treatments, area rugs, as well as reupholster some of my favorite pieces in updated fabrics. We are so happy. Not only does our house look polished, it is all being done on our time frame and budget. We can't wait to begin our next project. Thank you, Paula!
Elena was the project manager and interior decorator for our basement finishing project. She easily grasped how we wanted to use our basement and was able to provide suggestions on how to best achieve a beautiful and functional use of the space. Elena, worked with us to choose elements which looked good together and fit within our budget. We have since received several compliments on the finished project. Elena coordinated with us prior to in order to ensure it would not adversely impact our family. She quickly addressed any questions we had throughout the process and provided a weekly schedule so that we would know what was going on and who would be in our home. Any time that workers would be in our home outside of a normal 8AM to 5PM weekday, Elena coordinated with us prior to in order to ensure it would not adversely impact our family.
My husband and I enjoyed working with SJL Interiors as we prepared for our daughter's birth. Ms. Gatewood listened to our ideas, worked within our budget, and provided a workable timeline. She took our ideas to the next level, and we're beyond satisfied with our daughter's nursery. We look forward to working with SJL Interiors again!
Maria is a truly inspired designer. I love her work. Her vision is unfailingly crisp and fresh, and her use of color is unparalleled. She is collaborative and creative with a great sense of style. She helped us with our house remodel which focused on the creating a new kitchen, laundry room and additional den. She understood what we wanted, the style we liked, and gave us great ideas and suggestions to make our “new” home exactly like we wanted it. She is calm under pressure and gets the job done. She is a great design professional and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a designer in NOVA. She has great vision and attention to detail. I look forward to hiring her on our next phase!
Mr. James Litman was extremely professional in his demeanor, very detail oriented. Never too busy to answer any question. With my hectic work schedule I would sometimes need to text Mr. Litman late in the evening. I could always expect a response before the next day. I did comparison shopping with other contractors and his proposal was lower and more affordable. My hardwood floors, designer paint job and bathroom remodel was top notch. I’m happy to turn the key and enter my home. Would use Unlimited Resources for my next home improvement project. Very satisfied!
After making a rookie mistake and undergoing a renovation without the help of a designer, I needed to call in the big guns to help fix the things we did wrong/didn't like in our kitchen. Janet came over and gave me GREAT, easy ideas that I can implement. I am actually excited about making the corrections and know they will turn out well. Janet also gave me great ideas for my dining room (which is in a holding pattern until I fix the kitchen). I have the confidence now to move forward with all of the updates. This was just one part of my home plan, so upon future renovations, I will definitely work with Janet again.
I hired New Vision Properties Construction Services to remodel my kitchen. It badly needed work and had to be completely gutted. New Vision Properties provided outstanding service and high-quality work--they finished my project on schedule, kept me appraised of progress and were very transparent about costs. Richard and his crew were courteous and very professional. My new kitchen looks great, and I plan to re-hire them for my next remodeling project.
Malak Construction built a deck for us, the work was professional, the guys cleaned up everyday before they left. Their price was a little higher than other contractors but it was worth it.
Absolutely loved MagnifiqueHomes! I moved to Virginia and needed to downsize quite a bit, moving into a much smaller place. Maud was great at utilizing the small space I had to maximum efficiency, making it feel like a home at the same time. She kept me involved in every step -- making it a truly enjoyable experience. I couldn't be happier with this, my first interior design experience. I would definitely recommend MagnifiqueHomes without hesitation.
I have to say that I used real plaster moldings throughout my house.when I went to my friend house I was pleased with crown molding and some design on her ceiling And that prompt me to look for the contrator (glamour touch home decor llc), despite my architect recommending wood and MDF. It was the best decision I made in whole project. The plaster is gorgeous-and it looks like nothing else.I 'll always be greatful for the job well done.
Highly recommend Nalini. I needed to order furniture for my daughter's room. I told Nalini my budget and my specifications as i wanted something timeless, maintenance-free, sturdy, and comfortable. She came back with thoughtful suggestions, ideas, and options to choose from. I found exactly what I was looking for. Nalini arranged everything from order to delivery, and she even came to check on the items when it was being delivered to make sure everything was accounted for and to my satisfaction. Thanks Nalini, you were easy to work with, I will reco to all my friends!
