Hopkins & Porter Construction was very professional. They were very easy to talk to in terms of any changes that needed to be made or things that I did not feel were working in the plan. They always communicated very well withme about things that may have had to be delayed or changes that had to be made. The workmanship was excellent and I would definitely use them again. I would certainly recommend them to anyone else. I know that in this area of Washington D.C. there are a wide range of prices in terms of design/build companies. Hopkins & Porter Construction is certainly not the cheapest, but they are not the most expensive. They are very professional. Also, I hate pushy salesmen, but they were very easygoing about doing things. That is a manner in which I like to work.
We were most satisfied with the overall organization of Hopkins & Porter's Handymen Operations and especially with the professional expertise and advice of our project's coordinator, Mr. Todd McPhee. We were also very satisfied with the quality of the work performed by each member of the team Mr. McPhee put together for our job.
Modernizing our 1955 kitchen, improving a bathroom and repairing fairly substantial water damage in the basement all in one fell swoop involved the coordinated efforts of a carpenter, plumber, electrician, painter and floor installer. The Hopkins and Porter division of Handymen Operations provided a skilled team to accomplish our project. The team's extremely competent and flexible leader made our project a smoothly-run success. We are pleased to endorse this excellent firm.
From what I have heard from others, Hopkins and Porter is more expensive. We did not comparison shop or put out bids because we knew we wanted to use Hopkins and Porter. I do believe you get what you pay for when doing home remodeling.
Juan was the best, kind, considerate, he even changed his ring tone on his iphone which before he changed it really made my heart skip but when I finally told him, he changed it instantly, he brought me my paper from outside every morning. He is my friend. Thank you Juan.
I have and will always recommend H&P
Hopkins and Porter and the two fellows I had the most contact with, Todd and Juan, are superior in their skills, timely on their work promises, clean all along the way with the job, kind in their manner and I miss having their presence with me daily. Would love to show possible clients H&P's work at my house. Anne J.
I would give the staff's communication a five if I could.
I would give the employees and subcontractors a five if I could.
I don't think they could improve anything. I think they were exceptionally professional and on the ball. The necessary concerns and glitches that appear during any construction project were addressed quickly and to my satisfaction.
For projects of this scale I would consider myself a client for life.
I would absolutely recommend them and I have already recommended them many times.
We had a marvelous experience with Hopkins & Porter Handymen. They provide high quality workmanship, they are professional, and they are just generally pleasant people to work with. In particular, what we valued was the customer service aspect. Ours was not an overly complex build; we probably could have gotten similar work done at a similar price by another company. However, the customer service we received from our foreman, our architect, the subcontractors, and everyone we worked with throughout the process was outstanding. We would highly recommend them.
They did the work carefully, cleanly and completely
The guys doing the work were fantastic. They communicated well, they were clean and courteous and knew what they were doing. They even made suggestions when we ran into problems in an attempt to keep the overall cost down.
I was most satisfied with the workmen and the quality of the work.
I would rate the handyman even higher than a four if I could. He was outstanding and his name was Elvis. He was great.
We called Hopkins & Porter because we saw a serious problem in the deterioration of a porch. It took engineering and design skills to fix the porch because it holds up a roof. They came out within a day and within three days they did the work. We feel very comfortable about the work that they did for us.
I am extremely satisfied with the work performed by the handymen. I had painting and carpentry work done. The work was done in a timely fashion, and all of my questions were answered. I would recommend this company to others.
I would give them a 4+.
