Reviews for Arlington bathroom remodelers
Recent success stories from people in the Arlington area.
Emington and his crew with Home Improvement were a pleasure to work with.
And I want to start off by saying this house was in very bad shape. It might have been easier to knock this house down and rebuild.
Home Improvement were professional with respect for the persons living in the house and neighbors that surrounded the area.
Ermington’s crew works as a unit. The first time we met, Home Improvement gave me an estimate and the second time we met we discussed the details of the estimate.
I was absolutely positive this house didn’t need a new roof. I couldn’t have been more wrong. In a blink of an eye the 4 men who came with Emington were grabbing their ladders and were now in the attic and on the roof of my house. As we talked Emington’s crew was sending him photos of the attic and roof damage. As we moved forward, I was blissfully unaware of what I wanted in colors and styles. Emington told me to drive around the neighborhood and look at siding and roof colors. Extremely good advice. I told him what I saw and from there he suggested what colors would complement each other.
His crew replaced the roof first. There was no screaming or cross talking from the crew for the roof replacement. The siding was next. Same crew, same results. Excellent work and respectful. I noticed they paid attention to splices with the siding. Everything looked even with no gaps. The windows were next along with the air conditioning.
The perfect plan was to bring each company to me for each project. Pella came in for the windows and showed me styles, designs, etc.… I never had to run around looking for what I wanted. There was no sales pitch and no one talked me into an upgrade. This also applied to the air conditioning.
There was a timeline but because I worked in an environment where my clients always need a ship date, I was already prepared for delays and wrong products. I can assure you mistakes will happen to delay projects that are totally out of the contractor’s hands. But with Home Improvement, Emington took control and followed up on the issue right away. He would send me emails and updates. This was very much appreciated. There was also an emergency with my family and we had to put the entire project on hold for 30 days. Emington understood and he never gave me a hard time nor did he up charge me for lost time.
Home Improvement and Emington and crew were very easy to work with. If I wanted to make a change, they would tell me honestly if that change would affect another room or if the cost was so far out of range I would decline. The crew was polite respectful, no cussing and they cleaned up after themselves. Emington’s crew also did little things to help us out. Took the battered trash cans and got rid of them for us, accepted delivers and so on. These things add up and, in the end, saves you time.
At the moment, I decided to hire Emington and crew from Home Improvement to build a screened in back porch. My decision was based on his work and the art of his craft.
I highly recommend Home Improvement as one of the best contractors I have ever worked with.
This was not my first rodeo with a construction company to turn a house into home. This site was the first time I worked with a structure in ruin and Home Improvements turned it into a home. My highest recommendations go to Home Improvement, Emington and Crew.
Home Improvements LLC
Very pleased with this company’s work. The storm/screen door made of wood was no longer a tight fit. Door companies had recommended a metal door replacement. Howard proposed an easy fix that would allow us to keep the existing door. Work performed by the company fixed the problem. Door looks good.

Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
Lisset is an absolute professional who takes 100% pride in her work. She stand by her work and is very courteous, easy to work with, and I would highly recommend her for any job. She is that great of a professional.
Very professional. I had to get a kitchen counter remodeled quickly between closing and moving in to not disrupt my family. Tes Design was able to source the material and perform the installation in 2 days and did an excellent job for a very fair price. I'd call them again for a future project.
The whole Traylor team was top-notch.
Andre came out to personally go through the estimate and was here constantly to check on the project.
After receiving 7 different proposals for our house project we decided to go with Traylor. They were licensed, competitively priced and responsive.
They painted our entire house and completely remodeled my entire office.
The team worked efficiently and when I made suggestions along the way, they were accommodating. I was fearful that the timeline would be extended but indeed, they finished at the agreed-upon date and at the agreed-upon price.
We will definitely be using them again to remodel our kitchen, bathrooms, and basement.

I had the best experience dealing with J&P Restoration. They did a fantastic job. We had a strong storm that had recently caused our roof to leak and damaged some of our siding. They came out the next day and gave us a totally different experience then I expected. John with J&P Restoration was very polite and kept me informed every step of the way. We were able to get a new updated roof and our siding repaired without having to pay a red cent. They dealt with the insurance company the whole time which was nice because I'm working crazy hours. I would definitely use them again. Thanks John for your diligent work. We are very happy with your services
J restoration LLC
very skilled and professional Painter
An excellent experience on excavation and concrete pour and finish of a foundation and slab for a carport / garage. They followed my plans and worked with me on recommendations and solutions to grading conditions. John and his crew were a pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with them again!
