Finecraft Testimonials
Marianne says THANK YOU
Finecraft Testimonial: Terry L.

"We hired Finecraft to renovate our late-1890s row house in DC, including putting in a new kitchen. We were very pleased with the work done by Finecraft. George and his team were able to create a kitchen that has all of today’s modern amenities but still has the charm and finishes consistent with the age of the house. The craftsmanship of the cabinetry and molding is beautiful. They created plaster molding in the kitchen that matches the original molding perfectly. Beyond the kitchen, the Finecraft team carefully restored the walls, molding and floors back to their original glory and updated our powder room and foyer tile. The work was done timely and within budget. And, the Finecraft team was responsive to our questions and requests. We would recommend them without reservation for any type of renovation – from new build to restoring an older home."

"Finecraft is an excellent company to work with. Honest, reliable, creative, dependable and of course the attention to all the details are second to none, The crew are hard working and respectful. George is an inspiration and works so hard to come up with the best possible solutions for his clients. The team thinks creatively and out of the box which is so unusual. This is especially important in an historic renovation where sensitivity to the integrity of the house is key to bringing it back to life. I would highly recommend George and his team."

"Finecraft says it all! What an amazing company. Their detail to workmanship, customer service and setting the standards for quality standards all across the board is what they are all about. George the owner of the company sets the standards for perfection in all the building and project management and Niko sets the standards for customer service and high end marketing using the latest technical tools to stay up with the newest building trends. Their team members hold to all these standards which make it one of the best remodeling companies in the area. I would highly recommend Finecraft to anyone looking for a company to take care of all their building needs and to any architect or design firm that would like to collaborate with their services. You can't go wrong in working with this company."

"As an architect, I'm naturally very protective of my clients with regard to contractor selection. With Finecraft, i know that my clients are in good hands with a professional, honest, and thorough contractor. Their work speaks for itself in terms of quality craftsmanship, and they are a delight to working with. Communication is one of the most important parts of client management, and Finecraft clearly excels in this department. I would strongly recommend Finecraft to all of my clients no matter what type of project we design."

"I have used Finecraft Contractors, Inc. on several occasions and I highly recommend using them on your next project. Finecraft does very high end work with prices that are reasonable compared to the industry. The management team, their organization of projects, keeping customers informed, happy and satisfied before during and after the project is complete is the best. I will definitely continue to use them and will refer them to anyone in need of a good contractor."

"I hired Finecraft to handle a gut renovation of an 1890s townhouse in downtown Washington, DC. The property was an absolute mess and had been abandoned for 20 years. Finecraft were able to retain the front facade while constructing a new modern home with what was left of the old bones of the home. It turned out beautifully and is true to the architect's design. It was delivered on time and mostly on budget. I would recommend them to any other property owner in similarly situated historical/renovation jobs."

Great companies such as this stay strong and busy making their Clients dreams become reality. We look forward for another 20 years & more."

"Finecraft Contractors is by far, the most professional, caring, competent company we have used to work on our home. They completely restyled our 1940's Cape Cod 1st floor, as well as completed other outside improvements with magnificent results. From start to finish we always knew what was going on with our project. All of the folks on the project were absolutely the best - and they all stayed on the job until it was finished. As with older homes there are usually surprises when making changes to the floor plan. Our team anticipated those possibilities and problem-solved with us to accommodate our wishes. We felt that Finecraft truly cared about us, our needs, and our home and we could not be more pleased. We truly feel part of the Finecraft family!"

"We recently completed a large remodeling project in partnership with Finecraft Contractors, Inc. The project encompassed a large, high end Kitchen and two baths, including the Master Bath. George Papaheraklis and his fine crew are a pleasure to work with and have a keen attention to detail. No request was too small and every team member was respectful and professional. The end product turned out exactly as we had designed it, plus George made some wonderful suggestions along the way which were executed in the overall project. I would not hesitate to recommend Finecraft to my design colleagues or homeowners looking for a quality project! George is highly professional, easy to work with and his team is dedicated to their craft and always strive to achieve the highest level of client satisfaction."

"We recently had two bathrooms updated by Finecraft in our 1930s Glover Park house and could not be happier with the process and results! From the beginning Niko and his team excelled at communication - whether it was Niko checking in to make sure the work had begun on time or Chris (our project manager) letting us know what work would be done. We were impressed with how hard their team worked to make sure the project was complete before our planned move-in date. Every time we went to the house to check on the progress the team was working incredibly hard and were happy to show us what had been completed that day. We are already planning to use Finecraft again for future projects!"

"We were the architects for a complete 2nd floor remodeling job in Rockville. The project included the complete reconfiguration of the master bathroom and bedroom as well as moving the laundry closet into a new laundry room. We recommended Finecraft to our clients when they asked us about a trusted contractor. Often times it is risky for an architect to recommend a certain contractor but with Finecraft we have no hesitation. I know they will be professional, honest and if selected do a good job that is in line with the design intent. I highly recommend them for your home remodeling projects."

"After a year of discussions with our architect and Finecraft over the renovation of our 1920s colonial, we decided to go from a one story addition to a three story addition. George patiently addressed numerable questions raised by my detail -oriented husband. We lived in the house during the eight months of renovation, which enabled us to closely examine the outstanding craftsmen at work. George regularly came up with creative solutions to maximize the functionality of the space within our budget. When my husband and I disagreed about anything, we could always rely on George's professional vision and diplomatic resolution. My serotonin levels would rise each day when I saw George and Vivien arrive in the red pickup; they inspire confidence.The Finecraft team is committed to excellent craftsmanship in a timely manner. We enjoyed working with them immensely and would love to do another project with them soon."

"Finecraft recently renovated our basement family room, bathroom, and bedroom. They transformed a boring, dark, subterranean basement into a beautiful light-filled, walk-out family room. In addition to renovating the bathroom and upgrading the bedroom, they also created a project room. The results are stunning. Their organization and attention to detail resulted in a large scale project that moved smoothly, despite involving the skill of several tradesmen, all of whom are on staff with Finecraft (no subcontracting challenges). We could not be happier with the results!"

— Ashley Profaizer

"We contacted Finecraft for a smaller project in the summer of 2016 based on the Houzz reviews. They contacted us back very quickly, but because we had a tight deadline, Finecraft were not able to do the project themselves, but recommended one of their sub-contractors called American Trademark. AT renovated a small master bath for us on a very short deadline and completed the project in just over 2 weeks. The process went smoothly and we got the bathroom we wanted. They cleaned up at the end of each day and kept the mess to a minimum. The team was professional and met the deadline and stayed within budget. After completion, we noticed that some paint in the stairway to our second floor had been ripped off probably when they removed the paper that had protected the stairs. Not a big job to have fixed, but the reason what I did not give the full 5 stars."

"Finecraft Contractors are the best. Their workmanship is top-notch and their workers are all experts in the respective fields. They are a fantastic crew. We are pleased with our additions and changes which will enable us to stay in our house as we become less mobile. We now have a beautiful custom-made roll-in shower and other bathroom changes that enable a person in a wheelchair to use the bathroom. This was a tricky undertaking because of the configuration we wanted. Most importantly, the owner, George Papaheriklis, listened to us and made sure that the construction was perfect, He consulted with us all during the construction."

— Bonita Condon

"I am an architect and worked with FineCraft on a kitchen/ family room renovation. Their work is excellent and high quality with attention to detail. The project was finished within the timeline projected. I enjoyed working with George Papaheraklis, as he is a master builder with many years of experience, has a good eye, and brings great ideas to the project. My clients also enjoyed working with George and were very excited about the end product. I highly recommend this company and look forward to working with them again!"
