    I would highly recommend Hopkins and Porter. We have been using them for many years, at least 10 , for work on the house. Every time, they do excellent work. They are not only do a good job but they are great people.

    Todd McPhee, the project manager for my kitchen renovation, has been dependable, respectful, on time, and always eager to meet my expectations for the work being done. He has proven himself most valuable at finding workable and creative solutions to various construction-related problems (far exceeding my expectations). His main workman, Juan, is also hard-working, dependable and knowledgable about most jobs related to construction and/or repair work. Because of my excellent experience with Todd and Juan, I have been recommending Hopkins & Porter to all my friends and anyone I meet who is planning a home renovation project.

    This is the third time we have used Hopkins & Porter for sizeable projects at our house. We keep using this firm because of its attention to detail, fair treatment of clients, and superior workmanship. We also appreciate the fact that the office staff, Todd McPhee, and the workers who have been at our house have all been uniformly responsive, courteous, and professional.

    Todd McPhee is wonderful, helpful, knows so much and cares so much about our projects. It is the trust i have due to Todd, that i keep coming back to h and p. Also, Juan has done excellent work. Trust is important with home repairs. I know i can call Todd with questions. He is so kind.

    Hopkins and Porter doesn't fall short. I just have to accept that the project will always cost more than I anticipate. But I reassure myself that I am paying for the trust I have that the job will be completed to my satisfaction.

    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 excellent in any work he did on my house. I am so thankful for him. His feet and hands were always clean, he was very conscious of taking care of my new addition as if it was his. Don't ever send me anybody but Juan and yes of course Todd.

    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.

    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.
