Help us add to this list my making recommendations.
Jon from 3rd St: I wish I found Dan at Certified Services sooner than I did. Then I would be able to write that he fixed everything in my house. After I found Dan, I had him do everything that was left. I love the bathrooms he did.
John Garces, owner
Amanda from Bloomingdale blog: Our contractor of choice is John Garces, who owns Hopeday Improvements. He is a great guy who does all kinds of jobs big and small.

Mark from Bloomingdale blog: If you want a one-man-band general contractor, I highly recommend Paul. His particular area is fitting kitchens, bathrooms and carpentry but he can turn his hand to most things (he fitted windows, HVAC and did welding work for me as well as bathroom, kitchen and ceilings). He subcontracts electrics and plumbing but will supervise and coordinate the work. He’s reliable and honest and will deliver the project on-time.
Jose Lopez Enterprises
240- 832- 3621
From Bloomingdale listserv: “Jose is a great trustworthy general contractor that is doing my complete gut-rehab and has worked for many people I know from colleagues at work to friends and neighbors–from the very rich to the very money conscious. He does jobs of various sizes from small jobs to complete rehabs. Anyone interested can come see his work in progress at 114 W Street NW. You won’t be disappointed!
Thomas Designs & Construction, Inc.
703- 752- 1614
From a 3rd Street NW resident: “They installed a kitchen from scratch for us… along with miscellaneous other work. They are licensed in DC and MD, bonded and insured.”
From U St Listserv: My friend’s recently remodeled house was featured in the Washington Post Magazine and she absolutely loved her contractor – something that I think is quite rare.
