Reviews

Amy & Charlie G., Silver Spring, MD:

"Our new kitchen works better for us in every way as a result of your combination of smart design with fine workmanship. We now have more storage space in corners, drawers, and surface spaces all within the same footprint. Moreover, your great crew made a pleasure of a disruption we had feared."

Nick C., Washington DC:

"My wife and I worked with Keith and his team to design and carry out an extensive kitchen remodel and almost complete reorientation of the living space in our DC rowhouse/condo. Keith was great to work with during the planning and design phase of the project, taking time on several occasions to visit the property and then to tweak the design to fit our needs. Once design was finalized, Spectrum worked quickly to move into construction. This being our first renovation project, we especially appreciated the crew's attention to detail, willingness to stop and answer our many questions along the way, and flexibility with small changes we requested throughout the project. We're extremely happy with our new kitchen. Thanks to Keith and the Spectrum team for a job well done!"

Victor L., Washington, DC:

"Keith Vaughan is an absolute professional with an eye for detail and quality assurance. Spectrum is straightforward, candid, and transparent in estimating project cost, timelines, and potential issues -- with Keith and his team, you know what to expect. I recommend them without reservation, and hope that we can work together again."

Michael R., Washington, DC:

"We worked with Spectrum on two projects including an extensive remodel and update of our home. Keith and his team are very detail oriented and focus on producing very high-quality results. I would highly recommend Spectrum for any design-build project you are considering."
