Historic Home Remodeling in DC, MD & VA

Washington, DC and its suburbs are home to numerous historic districts, each with its own historic styles and set of regulations. Wentworth, Inc. has experience remodeling these homes in a wide range of styles and neighborhoods, ranging from Capitol Hill to Georgetown and Woodley Park, DC to Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. Just as each neighborhood and home is different, each historic district has its own specific set of requirements when it comes to remodeling.

Remodeling a historic home requires not only sensitivity towards original design and architectural history but also an understanding of the logistics involved with obtaining approvals for remodeling in a specific district. Throughout the years, the Wentworth team has gained extensive knowledge of the zoning, building codes, and materials necessary to ensure any remodeling project runs smoothly and produces a truly seamless final result.

“ 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. ”
