“ "My family is delighted with the detailed and professional work of the Wentworth team. It was really a pleasure to work with you from start to finish.
Your team brought our home up to current standards with elegant transitional design and luxurious finishes.
The design and installation of our project was managed smoothly even under the challenging circumstances of 2020." ”
J.R. Chevy Chase, Maryland
“ From the architects to the carpenters, we had complete confidence in Wentworth's expertise. Once construction started, we were very pleased with the communication we had with Wentworth -- Victor kept us apprised of scheduling issues and other relevant developments, and was (and continues to be) extremely responsive and professional. Wentworth did an outstanding job of resolving every hiccup that occurred during the course of our project. Wentworth met our extremely high expectations in almost every area. Our initial meeting with Bruce made clear that Wentworth was the only real choice for our renovation: unlike the several other architects and builders we consulted, Bruce asked us probing questions about how we use our house, actually listened to us, and then gave us options for renovating our space that were beautiful and met our functional needs. We will recommend Wentworth next time we know someone who's looking to renovate. We love our new space - thank you for creating it! ”
Sara Zdeb, Washington, DC
“ The wood workmanship is excellent - the wood floors also wonderful - the tile work was great! Wentworth offered reassurance that the structural integrity of the roof would be fine and were very thorough and careful about any remodeling concerns! ”
Margaret Taylor & Angus Worthing, Washington, DC
“ I certainly appreciated the quality, professionalism and attentiveness of you and your colleagues throughout. ”
Rufino H., Washington, DC

“ We had an ambitious plan for renovating our kitchen to a modern and open space. It was a collaborative process from the beginning, where design options were proposed and our feedback and preferences were taken into account. The work progressed efficiently, the workmanship was excellent, and adjustments were made when desired. We now have a beautiful, highly functional, modern kitchen. ”
“ I will go with your opinion on the second light - because I like your amazing sense of design - you are incredible. ”

Chuck, Washington, DC
“ 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. ”
Nancy, McLean, VA
“ I appreciate everyone's hard and beautiful work on the kitchen! ”

T.P., Washington, DC
“ Hi, Bruce,
Linda, Chevy Chase, MD
I look forward to your articles in Chevy Chase Village Life -- I love bungalows so I immediately read the article in the latest issue that arrived yesterday (as your team was here planning for the photo shoot). I also liked the Sponsor Spotlight this month -- featuring your company.
Is it possible to get a reprint or link to your article on porches that appeared recently? I would love to add one to our NC beach home, but so far no one has been able to figure out how to get access from the inside to the outside! I know my sister would love to see the article too.
Thanks for ALL of your amazing work. I hope you will feel free (and
confident) to use us as references. The only hard part will be communicating what an outstanding job -- beyond our high expectations -- your team did for us. We are demanding, but your team is more demanding in the excellence that they deliver.
I want to thank all of you for all your work and effort put into my renovation project. I am extremely grateful and satisfied with the outcome.
G.R., Washington, DC
“ What appealed to the buyers…was the balance between the old and the new, the preservation of the original features of the house, set off by the new open and lighter look. A friend who showed the house to her cousin, an architect, told me that he liked the kitchen enormously and has used it to inspire his own designs. Highest form of flattery.
Susan, Capitol Hill, Washington, DC
I hope you are doing well. Three years on, we love our kitchen and the entirety of the design and renovation that your firm did!
We have recommended you to several friends who admired the work you did in our house.
T.P., Washington, DC
“ We absolutely love our updated master bathroom. It was a pleasure working with the Wentworth team again ... they work magic. Victor is so talented. We are thrilled with our new storage spaces and beautiful hardwood floors. Looking forward to collaborating on our next big project together. ”
K.D., Northwest Washington, DC
“ Thank you for all of the work and attention. We are very happy with our doors. It was the best option aesthetically. ”
Patricia, S., Silver Spring, MD
“ I'm only writing to thank you for a truly fantastic educational and informative website. I'm on the havre de grace historical preservation commission and often need to identify the style of one of our historical homes. without architectural training it can be difficult. I hope you don't mind but I'm going to copy your page of styles and distribute it to commission members, along with credit to your website. It's truly exciting to find your website. thank you so much for sharing the information. ”
M.O., Havre de Grace, MD
“ The Qualified Remodeler magazine recently selected your firm as the Silver winner for the "Finished Basement" AND the Gold winner for the "Exterior Facelift" categories. Throughout this economic roller coaster, your firm has clearly demonstrated true consistency and architectural excellence. Please accept my congratulations on your and your firm's success. I am sure it took many hours of planning and a lot of energy and hard work to achieve this status, and I applaud the efforts of everyone in your firm. ”

“ Awesome. Thanks much. It is looking fabulous! ”
T.G., Kensington, MD
“ 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. Wentworth's cost was told to me upfront and there was never a deviation from that cost. It is a joy every day to live within the practical and elegant spaces Wentworth designed and built for us. I would strongly recommend Wentworth. ”
Mary D., Alexandria, VA
“ I just want to take a moment to let you guys know just how happy we are with the designs. I was fully prepared to be disappointed because I had wild expectations and was incredibly excited. Instead I was blown away by every design you gave us. Any one of the addition designs would have more than satisfied my expectations and the fact I have to choose between them is incredible. Each one is so different but capture everything I wanted...Thank you so much for everything you have done so far. ”
S.R., Silver Spring, MD
“ Thanks, Michael. We are VERY much enjoying the space! ”
G.R., Penn Quarter, Washington, DC

Susan R., Washington, DC

“ Typically when one hears about another's experience with a renovation, they are stories of horror. My renovation experience with Wentworth was quite engaging and I would say even fun.
Glover Park Client, Washington, DC
“ We just wanted to tell you how delighted we are with the final product. We really could not have imagined how big and beautiful our kitchen would be, but we are very glad that you could! Your firm's work has exceeded our expectations. Victor and Steven and their crew did a phenomenal job. They constructed a beautiful kitchen area and they thought of every detail. They were very thoughtful and courteous, cleaning up every visible speck of dust every day and keeping the remainder of the house very livable. Michael's many talents speak for themselves, and we are thrilled that we got to work with him.. Thank you for creating this wonderful space that our family will enjoy for years to come. ”
T.P., Northwest Washington, DC
“ On the construction side I couldn't be more pleased. Wentworth staff on 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 construction 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. ”
Peggy M., Washington, DC
“ I would STRONGLY recommend using Bruce Wentworth up at Chevy Chase Lake -- it's a design-build firm so you have an integrated team working for you. We started out a kitchen-family room project with another design-build firm and it would be hard to communicate exactly how much BETTER the design that Bruce came up with was.
Bruce and his team also did a project for my daughter and her husband this past fall which was amazing. ”
L.M., Chevy Chase, MD
“ Just a note from a former client. We still get compliments on the design of our condo's kitchen.
Andrea B. & Gregg R., Woodley Park, Washington, DC

Glover Park Client, Washington, DC

Susan and Larry K., Washington, DC
“ Today I told someone that we are re-doing our kitchen and they asked with whom. When I told them, they said, "They're the best!" I agreed -- and the most responsive and the most creative and on and on. ”
Linda , Chevy Chase , MD
“ The project is coming along really well, and I'm excited to get home again and start using my new kitchen. Eric and team have been doing really beautiful work. The shallow shelving unit, in particular, is worth stopping by to take a look at, if you haven't done so already. Eric has also been really kind about keeping me updated with texts and progress photos. Kudos to the whole team. ”
J.H., Capitol Hill, Washington, DC
“ A number of the design elements I could easily envision from the plans and knew I would like, such as the arched French doors, window over sink, pantry. But others came to life for me only in the implementation. Standing in the doorway of the small bedroom, for example, is one of my favorite views; the arched cubby is beautiful. ”
Glover Park Client, Washington, DC
“ Hi Bruce,
Gail, Washington, DC
All is well here and getting better every day. You and your team have been fantastic, and never once have I questioned myself as to whether I was doing the right thing. Everything is looking great and I hope that when we are finished that it meets or exceeds our expectations. Thank for your continued interest and efforts in making this project something about which we all, you, your team and me, can be proud. ”
“ The lead carpenter was very attentive to detail. He set and met high standards. Potential problems and areas for improvement that were not directly related to the project were identified. We appreciated that input and advice. ”
Foxhall Village Client, Washington, DC

“ Thank you for creating an elegant and amazingly functional new kitchen design for us. We would never have imagined such a design solution but now we cannot imagine it any other way. ”
Judy and Nelson L., VA
“ 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. ”
A.C., Bethesda, MD (GuildQuality)
“ You really have great carpenters. They are easy to work with and are doing a beautiful job. I am really quite pleased. ”
Jim H., Washington, DC
“ The Wentworth team took special care with the workspace because of our children. I have not seen anything quite like these guys. They were fastidious and took the issue of our children very seriously. When they said they would be here at 7:00 AM the truck arrived at 6:55 AM. ”
Ben G., Washington, DC
“ The kitchen looks so good – I’m really impressed by how it turned out ”

The care and consideration for our neighbors was commendable. ”
Rindy and Frank O.
“ Thanks for your great work on our home addition. We greatly appreciated your fine carpentry skills, attention to detail, and patience with the homeowners (!). The finished product is beautiful, and we are very proud of it!

“ Thank you so much for the very thoughtful gift and card you sent to welcome [our son] home. He has been following the baseball standings with great interest, and is looking forward to many messy meals with his Red Sox bib and bottle. And whether he realizes it or not, his meal times have been made much more pleasant - and his parents are much happier - because of the fabulous new kitchen you designed and built for us. It was really kind of you to think of us at this special time in our lives. ”

Your ideas of using our little space were illuminating as [we] have a difficult time thinking beyond what already exists in our house. Again, thank you for your time and thoughtful consideration of our project. ”
J.Q., Kensington, MD
“ 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! ”
A.C., Bethesda, MD
“ Everyone has truly done a remarkable job and we couldn’t be happier with the work. The delay was vastly improved by the fact that Sean cleaned up meticulously every single day, and that everyone was so pleasant to be around. And the attention to detail and the care with which everything was done, was truly remarkable. Sean filled us in at every step of the way, always with as much enthusiasm as professionalism - a truly winning combination. It was a pleasure working with someone who takes his job so seriously. Thank you all for all the wonderful work! ”
S.C., NW Washington, DC

“ Dear Bruce,
We are so pleased with our new room addition, designed and constructed by Wentworth
Mr. Lach gave us a design that elevates our spirits each day and brings praise from friends and neighbors who have seen the room in actuality or iPhone photos.
Steve Barnard has our highest praise for triumph over single-digit temps, record snows, and personal changes to oversee and manage the on-site Wentworth team. His craftsmanship with built-in bookcases both in the new room and dining room will continue to give us pleasure for years to come.
Carpenter Juan is a valuable asset to your company and its client-homeowners. Consistently punctual at 7 a.m., skilled in workmanship and explanations to homeowners, good team leader and good team player.
With our gratitude for all the meetings here and at your office, for you and your team who worked with us every step of the way, and our warmest regards, ”
C.J., Arlington, VA
“ We have been very happy not only with the workmanship of our project team including attention to detail when a change in plans is advisable, but also with their consideration for our preferences, our requests, and our schedules, in addition to their attention to leaving the work area tidy and as clean as practicable. Of course work on one's house involves disruption, but they have minimized that in all ways possible. ”
