We hired MW to turn our unfinished attic into living space for our growing family. We had never taken on such a big home improvement project, and MW exceeded expectations in every way. We selected MW after interviewing Greg Marks (one of the owners) and receiving quotes from several other contractors. We chose MW based on the competitiveness of their price, their experience and expertise which came across in our initial conversations with Greg, and the fact that they are a family-owned business. Our house is a 1950's rambler in Arlington. Prior to the project we had all living space on the main level, as well as a finished basement. MW opened up our first floor living space, added a staircase to access the new second floor, and finished the attic by adding a shed dormer on the front of our house. The new second level has two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a playroom for our children. From the initial design to the execution of the project everything was first class. In the process, MW completed loads of other upgrades including adding a portico to the front of our home, re-siding the house with beautiful Hardie plank, replacing most of our old windows, replacing the roof, and adding all new interior doors. All of the finishes -- from the hardwoods that they installed, to the wallpaper on accent walls, to the paint, to beautiful staircase, etc. -- were well done. The only delay in the project was waiting on Arlington County to issue the permits. But MW began work immediately after the permits came through and they worked diligently to complete the project. Their crew was at the house promptly each day and worked long hours to get things done. Because of their hard work and dedication, the project was completed in approximately 3 months. Friends and family were impressed with how quickly things were finished. Drew Marks kept us well-informed throughout the project, holding regular meetings and walkthroughs to discuss details and make decisions. He was also responsive to our calls and emails. Overall, we felt like we were in good hands with a company that really cared about creating a beautiful and functional living space for our family. We could not be happier with the end result. Everyone that sees it cannot believe how great it turned out. It transformed our house into a forever home for our family of four. A couple of final thoughts. One of the things that we really appreciated was that MW does not spring your for hidden costs or up-charges. I was worried about that based on stories I've heard from other friends and what is regularly presented on home improvement programs on TV. But I felt like MW addressed any unexpected items that they encountered in our older home without increasing the agreed upon price. I also feel like they did certain things that other contractors would charge extra for without increasing cost. Since the project was finished in September we have contacted MW to come and address some minor issues (e.g., door adjustments as the house settles, minor electrical fixes). They have have continued to be responsive and professional for these minor items even though our project is effectively completed. In other words, they have continued to show the same level of responsiveness that we experienced throughout the project.
