Whole House Remodeling & Renovation

Offering entire home remodeling design and construction services under one roof gives us tight control over timelines and processes that many companies relying solely on sub-contractors don’t have. This allows us to respond quickly and effectively to any situation that may occur during design and construction.

Commonwealth Home Design assigns one project manager to each client. This hands-on, primary point of contact is onsite all day/every day, managing subcontractors, monitoring the budget and ensuring expectations are met. A project journal is maintained daily to communicate relevant, real-time information. This communication tool does more than just keep you informed; it proactively preserves the project schedule and design integrity and most importantly, manages the unexpected.

Kitchen Remodeling

Virtually all of Commonwealth’s home remodeling projects in Northern Virginia involve kitchen remodeling. We recommend creative design techniques to optimize storage, improve workflow, increase efficiency, and achieve symmetry, proportion and rhythm in kitchens. Frequently we remove walls and visual barriers between cooking and eating spaces to maximize a visual openness and functionality. Opening the kitchen to a grand family room, for instance, facilitates casual entertaining. The character of your home is largely influenced by the design of your kitchen!

There is never a day that goes by where we do not appreciate our beautiful home with the renovations your company did. Love it now as much as we did back then. Entertaining has become so easy and our lives revolve pretty much around the kitchen and living room. Cannot imagine how we lived before and wish we had done more!! Truly we love our home. Whether I walk in through the front door or pull up via the drive way just love how it all looks inside and out – definitely work you can be proud of!

Nishi and Lakshman, Vienna, VA

You guys are the BEST. I mean it. I wanted to drop you a note to tell you how happy Ruth and I are with the work that Commonwealth did on our remodeling project. As you know, half of our house was worked on, and the results were spectacular. Every phase of your work went smoothly…it was apparent that Commonwealth’s success comes in large part, from really listening to the needs, desires and dreams of your customers.”

Glenn, Fairfax, VA

We really appreciate the way you back up your customer service promise so consistently… and you can be sure we tell people often what a great experience we have had with Commonwealth. Thank you for taking all the steps to get us up and running…

Susan and Keith, McLean, VA

We had the pleasure of working with Commonwealth Home Design on an extensive renovation of our entire house. We are thrilled with the outcome and recommend them highly and without reservation…What we found very impressive about the Commonwealth team was the project planning and communication. Before work started, we were provided with a detailed project plan and cost estimates, and we were educated on what to expect during each stage of the project…There were no surprises or disappointments, and every day we received written communication about the work performed that day and planned for the next…The best part of the experience was the final result, which exceeded our expectations in terms of design, workmanship and quality. We would not hesitate to work with the Commonwealth team again and give them our strongest recommendation.

Nell Williams, Vienna, VA

We did a significant remodel of our 20 year old home with Commonwealth and it was fantastic from start to finish. This is a well oiled machine that is very professional and reliable with a high quality product. My biggest concern at the start was simply not getting what we we wanted and what we were paying for. We had heard horror stories of contractor ripoffs. Commonwealth was the opposite. They plan with you, they deliver excellent work, and also were flexible in the middle of the project to pivot when we wanted to changes and didn't penalize us. Two years after our warranties on the work expired we had a small issue and they popped over and just handled it. We've recommended them to dozens of friends and everyone who has used them has had a similar experience. Commonwealth is a sure thing.

Brian Monroe, Vienna VA

My husband and I have never found a contractor better than Commonwealth…and we should know. Over the 25 years since Commonwealth put a major addition on our house in Herndon, VA, we have worked with at least 10 contractors in 4 different states. None could beat Kelvin and Susan, and most couldn’t even come close. We wish we could have convinced them to move with us every time we needed to do a home renovation or construction project.

Anne Waigand, Oak Hil, VA

Commonwealth did a great job on a major renovations for us. They did an addition for us which increased the size of our house by over 50%. When we were considering doing the work, we talked with several contractors. We went with them initially for a few reasons: they are owned by a married couple where one is an architect and the other is an engineer, so we knew that neither would get short shrift on our project. But also, they were the only ones who came in with a vision to meet our goals after listening to what we wanted. Everyone on their staff was helpful, and knowledgeable. The final product looks great, and is exactly what we hoped for.
