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 have no idea where to start! Erick and his team were some of the most professional, friendly, sincere, considerate, hardworking, talented folks I have ever had the pleasure of working with. When someone has a contractor in and out of their home, for a few weeks (we had some surprises lurking in the walls), you want someone you can trust and feel comfortable with. I feel like Erick, Rony Jr. and Rony Sr. became a part of our family and when they left, I cried. I interviewed multiple contractors, Your Contractor was one of the firsts, and throughout the whole process of selecting a contractor, Erick's personality and ideas just stuck! For our project, we wanted a very specific color of gray cabinetry, Erick stuck it out with us and searched on our behalf for the perfect cabinet...BEFORE we even signed the contract! He was there for any question I threw at him from what type of garbage disposal, an instant-hot faucet, radiators, lighting, magnetic knife rack, floating shelves, etc. He was just a text message away. He had great ideas and resources to help you find the right product at the right price. We had a tricky project. It was a kitchen addition that had little to no backup of when it was added onto our 1935 house. Our floors had to be grinded down by 2-4 inches in some areas just to make it ready for self leavening compound so we could install a tile floor. Surprise! This was a major set back as we had no idea that it was that uneven, but Erick took care of us. Our radiator had a broken valve and Erick did the research on how to best mitigate and correct that. Surprise! We had to reroute a ton of wiring, junction boxes and just make our electrical system safe! Surprise! We had a catycorner range/oven situation that Erick had to somehow work out...and he did, it's gorgeous. He tiled the equivalent of 80-some-sqft of backsplash. We knew that our project would be complicated, tricky and have some surprises for us and it never phased Erick. We also had some extra side work completed by Erick and his team. We had central AC installed a few months ago which left gaping holes in our drywall. In an old 1935 house, the drywall (like the floors) are uneven and old, you can't even tell that we patched massive holes all over the place. The paint is expertly matched too. Erick "Just wants to make you happy" which I think he said to me at least once a day, everyday and we are VERY happy. He also made certain that our cat stayed safe throughout the whole process. It was a worthwhile investment not only in a gorgeous, functioning, pinterest worthy, ChipnJoannaGainesesqe kitchen but in a delightful opportunity to get to know Erick. I can't wait to get started on our next project with him. I HIGHLY recommend Erick and Your Contractor. Give them a chance, be honest with him, show him pictures and work with him on a design that you will fall in love with and he will deliver! If you are considering Erick and want to talk to a reference- ask him to contact me - I am happy to share our story! I wanted to add photos of the before and after! The first picture was it, a stove, three cabinets, dishwasher and a fridge, now we have so many cabinets that I need to go shopping to fill and a perfect work triangle. Anything awesome looking...well that's Erick's work :) (Ignore the windows, they are ancient and we didn't want to redo them so please don't judge Erick on those - totally on us!) Erick - I know you will read this and I just want to say again - THANK YOU so much for everything. I miss you already! Appliances: Samsung suite, gas range, dishwasher, hood, four door french refrigerator Sink: Krause Sink, Brizo Faucet and soap dispenser, Insinkerator disposal and Instant-Hot Hot water dispenser Papertowel Holder: Etsy Floating Shelves: Colonial Hardwood for the boards, Amazon for floating shelf brackets Magnetic Knife Rack: Wayfair Cabinets: Marsh Cabinet Brand, Door Savannah and color Storm
Our building management had EbRR do a kitchen and hallway cleaning for our restaurant. Luis & Ronnie were courteous and on time as requested by Ed. Ed showed up for the final walkthrough and will be most certainly calling back. They breathed new life into the old freezer that we had discussed about replacing but now we have saved a lot of money.
I needed to have 3 Ikea kitchen cabinets assembled & hung on the wall as a floating credenza below our wall mounted tv. Cesar was on-time & professional. He cut out the back of the center cabinet to allow access to the electrical outlet & HDMI cables. I highly recommend Cesar & will contact him for my future projects.
Tony and his assistant Omar did a fantastic job! They are designers as well! They recommended the height to install the flatscreen tv, blinds, and artwork! All looks GREAT! We are very pleased! They were on time and fast! And extremely reasonable! And professional! And prepared! Even did a home repair! On my schedule too-after work! Thank you! Very kind and highly recommended! Will call again! Thanks again!
Karen has great ideas. She is responsive and a talented designer. I definitely recommend her design services.
I hired Damian and Gadi to design an addition to my mid-century contemporary house. They presented numerous options in 3-D software to better visualize the design which was extremely helpful. We never felt pressured to settle on a particular design and encourporated our requests very nicely into the final product. They are extremely easy to work with and go the extra mile to achieve the desired results. They are also extremely responsive to our questions during construction. I can't say enough, we feel extremely happy and fortunate to have hired them!
I am extremely pleased with the service provided by Walt at Hi Solutions. Walt offered me a reasonable estimate, was prompt and installed the new kitchen facet properly. He even supplied a needed part at no extra charge. Great service! Thank you.
Was very happy with the communication, pricing and work product. Only used for the design layout and concepts but would not hesitate to use for a complete project in the future.
Our new kitchen backsplash looks fantastic! The guys were on time, thorough, and professional. Will be in touch for future projects for sure.
Michelle is a master of her craft. We started with a small project where she totally personalized my kitchen so it's all me! As a finishing touch, she used a bird theme (I love, love my birds). On one wall, Michele tastefully scripted "Live, Love, Laugh, Chirp". Everyone thinks her work is fantastic - especially me. After that, I asked Michelle to give my Living Room a makeover. Originally, it was not attractive or functional. She brought my built-in shelve to life with new paint & the perfect accessories. We added a new furniture and draperies. She even did a subtle Tuscan like faux paint that looks incredible. Highly recommend Michelle to all of my friends.
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.
We had Alcon install granite counter tops and all of our new appliances in a kitchen update in August 2016. Beto is extremely responsive and was willing to work with a quick timeline and crazy schedule. He and his people were professional and offered great ideas beyond what we had thought of. His prices was very reasonable and all-inclusive, very helpful as so much kitchen work is all about adding costs for a sink, cut-outs, etc. The work Alcon did is beautiful, everyone compliments us on it immediately when they walk into the condo.
I am very happy with KT's services and will be working with her again in the future. I had been looking for help with interior decorating but was scared-off by many designers/decorators that charge large fees, are looking for big projects, and come off as snobby. I was searching for someone that is down to earth and has a flexible and economical range of services. After searching for many years, I was lucky to be matched with KT on thumbtack. I am a novice/untrained decorator and have a good base of colors and elements in my condo but was looking for help/advice in tying things together with color and accessories. KT was just the right fit for me. We scheduled a 2 hour consultation and she arrived promptly and with great energy. She is incredibly down to earth and listened intently to the areas I needed help with and where I was feeling stuck. She provided excellent advice and within the two hours of our consultation I knew exactly what I wanted to do and am so excited to get started. She also offered helpful tips on vendors and painting techniques as well as placement of art and mirrors. KT's services are accessible to all price ranges and she has an incredible personality and ability to listen. We'll be calling her again when we buy our next house!
I hired Pam DiTomaso based on a referral I received from a neighbor. My wife and I wanted to break through to the adjoining bedroom to create a large Master Bathroom. We were so delighted when Pam came up with a Bathroom design AND a way to incorporate a Walk-in Closet. The project began in October and was to be completed by Thanksgiving. Of course, things don't always work out as planned...and work completed the 2nd week of December. One of the things that stands out about Pam, is that she visited the site several times a week, her contractor worked cleanly, and Pam stayed on budget! I recommend Pam DiTomaso of LifeStyle Home. My wife and I are looking forward to our next project with her!
