Home Construction Process

The home construction process is complicated so we take care of the details for you to ensure your dream home is brought to life.

If you live in the Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia area, Wentworth is your single source for any home design-build needs you have. Every step of the way, from initial design consultation to final home construction, we’ll guide you and make sure your home is turning out exactly how you planned.

We provide a range of home construction services, including (but certainly not limited to):

  • Home additions
  • Exterior remodeling
  • Façade enhancements
  • Garage remodeling and conversions
  • Basement remodeling

No two people are alike, and the same goes for houses. None are completely identical – and this notion drives the Wentworth design-build process. Our goal is to make your house a comfortable, beautiful home that is uniquely yours!

“ I just wanted to tell you how happy we are with the work you designed and oversaw...We are so proud to show the kitchen and family room to friends and relatives, and love their reactions (gasps of awe and jealousy). Mike and Enio were amazing, working so hard -- every single day, beginning at 7am -- and paying such close attention to details I never would have noticed. They clearly treated this job as their "baby," not wanting to cut corners even if they could get away with it...They also were great about cleaning up; I am positive the garage is cleaner now than before this job started! ”
