We'v'e done two major projects now w/Bruce Wentworth and his team and they do very high quality work. You pay extra for it, but we've found it to be well worth the extra cost. The quality of the work is outstanding.
Rarely will you find a group of people in the remodeling industry who are this committed to high-quality craftsmanship. We've worked on two projects with Wentworth and would gladly do so again. I must first of all compliment their architects for having immense creative talents but also working extremely collaboratively. Some architects simply impose their will and/or style on their clients; not so, with Wentworth. Your space will be uniquely YOURS. In addition, they are the kind of "shop" that views every roadblock or challenge as an added opportunity for great results. Every project has its challenges, but when (the inevitable) problems arose on ours, Wentworth responded with solutions that improved the overall space, making it seem like that had been the plan all along. The commitment for high-quality work extends to their carpenters and project managers, whose eye for detail is a huge asset in the implementation phase.There are firms that are more expensive, and those that are less expensive. But given the high quality level of the results (and of the process, which was pretty enjoyable for us), we believe the value-produced-per-dollar-invested is potentially best in class at Wentworth.
Wentworth was very professional and responsive. The quality of the workmanship is is superb.
We had an outstanding experience with Wentworth Inc. From the very first stages of planning our renovation, and then throughout the process, we have been very happy with their workmanship, their professionalism and courtesy, and their real pride in their work and the outcome of the project. The architect and kitchen designer was fantastic, patient, and kind, and gave us all the guidance we wanted and needed in planning the overall design and the selection of hardware, lighting etc (down to the smallest details). In addition, the carpenters and other workmen were incredibly thoughtful of my family and made it easy to live in the house despite the presence of a significant constriction site on the first floor. They spent considerable time every day cleaning up the dust and leaving the site neat and safe. I would not hesitate to use Wentworth Inc for another home renovation project and could not recommend them more highly.
I had several ideas on how to overhaul my galley kitchen and family room but Wentworth gave me three fantastic designs that had never occurred to me. I ended up choosing a combination of two of the designs. When they began work, they were at the house working every single weekday, with no exceptions. Their attention to detail went way beyond what I would have noticed. They cared a great deal about the quality of their work, and took pride in it. They finished ahead of schedule, and we could not be more pleased with the results.
This is a top-quality architectural design/build firm that will not disappoint you when it comes to the quality of thinking about design, and the quality of execution on the part of their employees. Unlike many firms, they are committed to working within your budget but will stretch your dollar in precisely the right direction -- to maximize your investment's value to you and your home. We have worked with a number of different renovation firms in the past, but have been consistently impressed at the way Wentworth handled the "curveballs" that naturally come as a part of the renovation process. In our case, many of those curveballs were resolved to make the project better than we had envisioned in the beginning. Now, that's thinking on your feet! I hope Wentworth is as proud of the work they did for us as we are of having worked with them. Certainly you will pay more to work with a firm that offers architecture and design/build under one roof. What you're really getting for that price are a group of true professionals who will care for your home as if it were their own -- and who will deal with the predictable and unpredictable challenges of renovation without breaking stride.
The quality of the finish work was incredible. It's obvious that the finish carpenter we worked with was top-notch -- and by the way, the subcontractors were no different. People who put this much care into their work are clearly happy to work with Wentworth... and happy to work with one another.
We were concerned that we spend our money in the right places and invest in things that would be of long-term value for the home, not just useful to us on a whim. Wentworth really helped us think through the various options available in depth so we could envision multiple versions of the project and guided us in the right direction. We didn't always agree on what the "right" solution was, but we certainly knew that if we were headed in the wrong direction Wentworth would stop us. That honesty is incredibly important when you're talking about projects that cost as much as these do... so our concerns were well-addressed.
We were really happy with our experience with Wentworth, Inc. We will use them in the future and will not hesitate to recommend Wentworth, Inc. to others.
We heard about Wentworth, Inc. through their mailings.
Wentworth, Inc. didn't fall short of our expectations
Wentworth, Inc. was extremely well organized and professional. They delivered a high quality solution. Their architects are creative and effective.
Our main concerns were the budget and schedule. We wanted to make sure we were getting our moneys worth given what we were paying.
We enjoy the professional and thorough manner in which all aspects of our project were handled and constructed. We look forward to having them on our next project.
We saw an ad in a magazine.
I was most satisfied with the overall planning, design, and execution.
We are about half way through the renovation and so far I could not be more pleased. The design is great, the promptness of everyone is greatly appreciated, and I have not had any big surprises so far. The workers on site are fantastic; they are here everyday at 7 AM: they communicate well, and their craftmanship is excellent. So far, the timeline is being kept and there have been only minimal added expenses. I would highly recommend Wentwworth, Inc. to anyone looking for quality design, prompt and responsive personnel, and excellent craftmanship.
Keep doing what you are doing. Everything seems to be working very well.
So far, I am extremely pleased with Wentworth, Inc. Keep up the good work.
It was an unusually pleasent experience. The architect, designer and lead carpenter were very attentive to details. The lead carpenter was usually already aware of things brought to his attention.
The Washingtonian Magazine
Timely response to problems.Efforts to deliver high- quality were exceptional and done good naturely.
Wentworth Studios turned our boring box into a beautiful, functional living space. They listened to our needs and ideas and gave us graceful solutions that far exceeded our expectations. It is a joy every day to live within the practical and elegant spaces Wentworth designed and built for us.

End results beautiful
On the design side I couldn't be more pleased. Wentworth listened to my oft competing needs/wants, accurately gleaned and guaged my taste preferences, and produced a design that exceeded all of my expectations. On the construction side I also couldn't be more pleased. Wentworth staff on the site inspired confidence and no carpentry task seemed too challenging. They took the same care they would take in building their own house, and in addition were always quite professional and considerate. On many constuction details I consider myself a perfectionist, and I soon learned that I could sit back and relax as details would be attended to with a very high standard. Typically when one hears about another's experiences with a renovation, they are stories of horror. My renovation experience with Wentworth was quite engaging and I would even say fun.
We are very pleased with the quality and pace of our renovation. Each step took place as planned: the Wentworth team would say "the drywall guys will be here until Thursday, then the painters will come and be here for three days," and that was exactly what would happen. All very well organized.The quality of both the design and finishing is exceptional.We will recommend Wentworth Inc. to friends and neighbors.
We were concerned that the renovation would not be consonant with the character of the house. This concern was given prominence in design (inside and outside) decisions.
We are very pleased with the outcome. The space is more open, warm, and inviting.
I am very satisfied with the design and decorating because they are spectacular.
The design/preparation work was great.
professionalism and quality of the work. They pretty much kept on buget and schedule.
Overall I think they did a very good job.
