“John’s attitude towards his work seems to be that it is a great and exciting adventure, rather than a trial to be suffered through, and it’s a contagious attitude.”

John and Erica SmithGermantown

“Collaborating with John Tabor and his team at Tabor Design Build was a great experience. We wanted to work with a local Rockville company and contacted them after reading their positive online reviews. Thanks to technology, we were able to conduct most of our meetings virtually and it was a positive experience. They helped us navigate city zoning requirements and paperwork to build out an in-law suite. We had some challenging design requests and Tabor helped us research the unique materials we wanted to create our own "Asian Rustic" design style. The space is very cohesive and cozy and is exactly what we wanted. We would definitely recommend Tabor Design Build to anyone in the area. John was pleasant to work with, well-organized, and always conscious of our needs, expectations and budget restrictions. Every stage of the project was scheduled to the day, and every item required was listed and selected in advance. Our requests for changes and additions in the course of the project were dealt with quickly and without fuss. His attitude towards his work seems to be that it is a great and exciting adventure, rather than a trial to be suffered through, and it’s a contagious attitude.”

J. and R. ClarkeHomeowners

“We had good expectations going in and they lived up to them. We like John a lot and have used his company a couple of times. Their work is very good. John’s a good guy to work with and his people are really good. The quality of staff is good and you get something really solid at the end of the day. They may not be the cheapest, but you get good value for your money.”

Steve McCreary and Beth van HanswykWashington, DC

“Tabor Design Build has been the best thing ever to happen to our house and has been wonderful for our peace of mind.”

Tim Beymer and Daniel BrunerWashington, DC

“John Tabor was always patient and straightforward with me, answering all my questions. John listened to my requirements and always provided insightful suggestions. John, Scott and all of the crews were always prompt, courteous and respectful of my home. It was a pleasure working with each of them and I am thrilled with the results of their hard work and meticulous planning.”

Myra CoffieldSilver Spring

“The cost was what they said it would be. We don’t have enough praise for Steve, Ed and Joe. All are thoroughly professional and willing to take the time to listen to our concerns during the project. Joe even took time yesterday to help me get our dining room table back in position so I could insert a couple of additional leaves for Thanksgiving. Thanks again.”

Joan and Jim CarlbergDarnestown

“We’ve had a lot of people over in the past few weeks, all are quite impressed. We have no regrets, there is really nothing we wish we had done and that is the mark of a great team effort. It looks amazing – one of the parts of the kitchen I am most happy with was the extra counter depth by the fridge.”

Steven and Nancy KubasikRockville

“When my wife and I purchased a new home, we decided to immediately renovate the kitchen, construct an office and replace the lighting in the basement, build a walk-in closet in the attic and make other significant home improvements. We knew exactly who to call — Tabor Design Build, Inc. We never even considered anyone else. Here’s why: Seven years ago we contracted with John Tabor to have work done at our previous home. On that occasion, we had Tabor remodel the kitchen, finish the basement and replace the front door. We were particularly impressed by the quality of the workmanship and John’s insistence on using only the best building materials. In addition, John made helpful recommendations based on his years of experience in the business. And he informed us up front about the possibility of any potential additional costs that might arise once the work had begun. We also appreciated the fact that the work was completed on schedule. The result was another satisfied Tabor customer — and the same is true of our most recent experience with the company.”

Roger GlassWashington, DC

“Overall, I was impressed with the attention to detail, the quality of the work and the commitment to customer service (all too often lacking in the trades). The lead carpenter on this job was a real pleasure to work with. Besides being an excellent, highly skilled and motivated worker, he was also extraordinarily respectful of my privacy and with the juggling I would be doing in the morning when he arrived (working out, eating, showering, dog care, and the like). The office staff was prompt, courteous and very willing to go the extra mile with good communication and follow-up. Lastly, John qualifies as one of those rare individuals, regardless of profession or trade, who is both technically knowledgeable and customer-savvy. It was a great experience working with a company committed to ‘getting it right’ each and every time.”

Amy VitroSilver Spring

“Our experience with Tabor was exceptional. It amazes everyone I know who has had remodeling done that not only was the job done two days early, it was only a couple of hundred dollars over budget. Everyone who sees our addition admires it enormously. The regular Tabor crew (Joe, Steve and Scott) were a pleasure to have around and were always polite, helpful, informative, available, and on time each and every day. The crew kept the yard very clean for a construction site, as we requested and wreaked very little havoc on the landscaping. We would definitely use Tabor for any future remodeling work on our house and have already recommended them to neighbors.”

Teresa LindquistRockville

“The actual outcome of our project was very much to our satisfaction. It was higher than my initial expectation when we started down the road on our remodeling project. However, after my initial meetings with Tabor Design Build, I came to expect a very high quality project outcome and that is how it turned out. We were highly satisfied with the entire process, from the initial meeting with John Tabor at our house, through the design phase and throughout the construction phase managed Joe Kucha. The communication as we went through a major renovation, while we were still living overseas, was exemplary. It could not have been better.”

Jonathan and Karen DunnBethesda

“We interviewed several companies before settling on Tabor. His professional manner, good ideas and experience led us to select him. The entire building crew, from the foreman to plumbers, painters, electricians and floor men, was excellent. The crew appeared each morning promptly and worked steadily through the day. They cleaned up afterward. In addition, the costs were kept to original estimates. We are extremely happy with the results and would recommend Tabor Design Build (and already have) to anyone considering a remodeling job, however complex.”

Marion and Ashok DeshmukhBethesda

“I have been grateful for the pleasant attitude of your employees and they have consistently left the work site in immaculate condition – always a pleasant surprise when I come home to see a completed job.”

Katie MillerWashington, DC

“We chose Tabor Design Build because they did a great job on my first renovation project. We selected them then because John is knowledgeable, straight forward, willing to work with you, fair and a good listener. I’m already thinking about Phase III! Thanks so much for making our house a home! You’ve brought our dreams to life!”

Michele and Steve FriedmanChevy Chase

“We wanted to extend a sincere “thanks”! We have been so pleased with the work that was done for the mudroom. We appreciate the concern over our safety throughout the project, the attention to keeping it as clean as possible, and the professional manner in which everything was handled. We have received many compliments. And, we are so happy with how the room in ALREADY improving the daily “flow” of our house. We will certainly keep you in mind for any future work, or referrals!

Loren & CJ KempDarnestown

“We can’t thank you enough for everything that you and your company have done to improve our home. Our quality of life, our level of comfort, our happiness have all increased tremendously.
I was really happy with the way their design translated into actuality. I was happy with the design assistance I got and the fact that everything worked out so beautifully. And the work is topnotch. It went beyond my expectations. The house actually looks like they said it would during the design process.
Both the project manager and the lead carpenter were very gracious and helpful. They kept us up to date as to what was happening each day. They were committed to finishing the project. They made the project so smooth for us. The way you operate must be unmatched. You have amazing people working with you, it ran like clockwork. Everyone who worked on the project was both kind and professional and the amount of disruption to our lives was minimal and short-lived. No one believed me when I told them the project would be completed in under three months. And not only that, it looks exactly as we wanted.
Thank you so much! Any time you want us to serve as a reference, we will be more than happy. I can’t imagine why anyone would select a design-build firm other than yours.”
