Amy & Charlie G., Silver Spring, MD:
"Our new kitchen works better for us in every way as a result of your combination of smart design with fine workmanship. We now have more storage space in corners, drawers, and surface spaces -- all within the same footprint. Moreover, your great crew made a pleasure of a disruption we had feared."
Nick C., Washington DC:
"My wife and I worked with Keith and his team to design and carry out an extensive kitchen remodel and almost complete reorientation of the living space in our DC rowhouse/condo. Keith was great to work with during the planning and design phase of the project, taking time on several occasions to visit the property and then to tweak the design to fit our needs. Once design was finalized, Spectrum worked quickly to move into construction. This being our first renovation project, we especially appreciated the crew's attention to detail, willingness to stop and answer our many questions along the way, and flexibility with small changes we requested throughout the project. We're extremely happy with our new kitchen. Thanks to Keith and the Spectrum team for a job well done!"
Victor L., Washington, DC:
"Keith Vaughan is an absolute professional with an eye for detail and quality assurance. Spectrum is straightforward, candid, and transparent in estimating project cost, timelines, and potential issues -- with Keith and his team, you know what to expect. I recommend them without reservation, and hope that we can work together again."
Michael R., Washington, DC:
"We worked with Spectrum on two projects including an extensive remodel and update of our home. Keith and his team are very detail oriented and focus on producing very high-quality results. I would highly recommend Spectrum for any design-build project you are considering."
David K., Bethesda, MD:
"I first worked with Keith for a large basement design and build project. Right from the beginning Keith built trust by getting to know our preferences and goals, while also bringing his experience and creativity. The combination of the two really helped us bring our vision to life. Throughout the project, Keith was active in providing insight and perspective to help us make decisions and he was able to handle any unforeseen items in a timely and transparent fashion. Keith is an honest business executive who continued to re-affirm our faith and trust throughout the project. Our decision to work with Keith ultimately led to outstanding results as well as an overall enjoyable experience. Not only would I recommend Keith to others, but I will continue to work with him in the future."
David M., Washington DC:
"Spectrum has completed two beautiful projects - a new family room addition and a complete kitchen and dining room remodel. Both were exceptional! In fact, the kitchen won a grand prize by the DC remodeler's association. I highly recommend Keith and his team."
Andrea R., Washington, DC:
"We hired Spectrum in 2012 to renovate our home to create a larger kitchen within the original footprint of our house. Keith has a fantastic understanding of what works and what doesn't work design-wise, and he provided several suggestions that made our original ideas even better. His Spectrum team was prompt, clean, and easy to work with. Four years later we are still totally in love with our "new" kitchen and it regularly receives compliments from those who visit our home."
Tricia D., Washington, DC:
"We hired Spectrum to update our outdoor space and to repair a detached garage. What we got is amazing! Our new outdoor living space sits atop our garage and is used 8 months out of the year. Spectrum installed heaters, outdoor TV with satellite and internet connection, and a sink. The workmanship on the cedar-pitched roof is top-notch. The project management staff is courteous and ALWAYS returned my calls the same day. The owner Keith Vaughan is involved every step of the way and was the lead designer of our project. Well done!"
Stephanie C., Chevy Chase, MD:
"We hired Spectrum Design + Build to renovate and add onto our home in Chevy Chase. We did a complete renovation of the original home and a 2-story addition. Overall, our experience was terrific. I especially appreciated the constant communication provided and made available to me and my husband throughout the process. The team was professional, honest and hardworking. We have really enjoyed our "new" home for the past almost 8 years. In the past years since our remodel, we engaged Spectrum again for a smaller scale project to build a bar area off our kitchen. I LOVE IT! So good. I would highly recommend Spectrum for both large and small projects."
Norm V., Washington, DC:
"Keith Vaughan and his team at Spectrum have always delivered a well-staffed crew, on time and as promised, consistently delivering quality finished jobs and product. I will never hesitate to hire the company when my projects demand it, nor shy away from recommending Spectrum as a quality remodeler and builder."
Becca & CJ, M., Washington, DC:
"We just wanted to write and say how much we are enjoying our new house. The work you [Keith Vaughan] and your team did is terrific."
Jon K., Washington, DC:
"My whole house remodeling and new kitchen and baths project was a significant undertaking (for me) that included a great deal of design and finishes decisions as well as actual demo and construction for implementation. Keith Vaughan and his team were responsive and were able to take my ideas from conceptual to implementation with significant, worthwhile recommendations and enhancements. The net result is a wonderful showpiece that incorporates personal, unique touches all completed with quality craftsmanship. Keith took what could have been overwhelming and made it a very manageable process."
Kimberly K., Bethesda, MD:
"I supplied a picture of a wine cabinet that I had seen in a magazine that I wanted. While it was not something that could be ordered, Keith worked diligently to custom design and build the cabinet for me. The finished product complements the space and is even better than the original picture. This is just one example of Spectrum taking our ideas and turning them into a reality. "
Chris B., Washington, DC:
"Keith and his team at Spectrum Design Build get an A+ grade... it is tough to say enough good things about them but I'll try. The team has been on time, reliable, professional, and the quality of the work they have done has been superb. In addition to their work, I have needed Keith and Spectrum's field team to do the extra work of providing detailed explanations of the pre-existing construction defects and photo record of what they found during the extensive repairs and remodels required to my house, which they have done a great job of on every project. Spectrum's team provides exceptional service and has been incredibly responsive. I really cannot recommend them highly enough... I was misled and swindled by an unscrupulous flipper.... without the awesome work of Keith and his team I would be living in a moldy wet house."
Victoria S. & Chico B., Washington, DC:
"Keith Vaughan is our go-to guy for everything our house needs. For big and small jobs, we get personable, professional and prompt service. The managers respond quickly to questions and concerns. The process is organized and transparent, with progress updates and more importantly clear explanations when progress is not being made. The workers also go to great effort to avoid disturbing occupants and neighbors. We have done two major renovations and two maintenance projects through Keith and the results have always exceeded our expectations. We recommend his services to everyone we know."
Rachel K. and family, Potomac, MD:
"We needed an update as well as a more functional space for our growing family, and Keith & Eric helped us to create a space that gave us a better kitchen, a bigger master bath, and an overall modern/airy feeling. He was able to accomplish the design while accommodating our own style preferences and making excellent suggestions. We are very happy with both the process and the end results produced by Spectrum."
Lorna M., Washington, DC:
"The Spectrum team took over a botched basement apartment project and created a phenomenal living space that exceeded our expectations. They incorporated their experience in design with our ideas and communicated well throughout the process. They attended to the smallest of details, thanks to the skill of the workers and the outstanding supervision."
