Optimus Remodeling

We have wanted to add a new staircase to improve access to our side yard ever since we moved into our house about 15 years ago. When our existing patio started to deteriorate (it is over 75 years old!), we decided to make the necessary repairs, add the staircase and include a new paver patio in the side yard. We found Darko and Optimus Remodeling through our neighborhood listserv. Out of all the companies we talked to about the job, Darko and Optimus Remodeling were the right ones to do what we wanted. Not only does his crew do quality work, but Darko and his team works with you to get what you need done without overcharging you. We also wanted to match the new work with the existing and Darko worked very well with us to make sure this happened. As a result, the new work ties in great with all the existing infrastructure and we are quite pleased. He and his crew are timely, neat and reliably finished all the work we asked, without us having to do constant follow-up. I would recommend Optimus Remodeling for any work and plan to use them again, when future work calls for it.

Only two weeks before I was due to deliver a baby, my husband decided it was time to have our water-damaged plaster ceilings in several bedrooms torn down and replaced, new lighting and a sky light installed, and several other repairs completed. Darko not only finished the work several days early, kept the dust completely under control, and did great quality work, he was also always responsive to my requests! We have continued to use Optimus Remodeling for additional small jobs and to coordinate emergency maintenance and repairs on our house when we left the country. We have always found Darko to be prompt, transparent, honest and he does very good work. I would not hesitate for one moment to wholeheartedly recommend Optimus Remodeling!

I have relied on Darko now for several jobs over several years. In each case, he has been responsive, professional and done very good work. He did some winter-proofing for my home last winter during a particularly frigid season. This summer he installed new iron railings in my home while I was away for the summer. He had access to my home and was completely reliable and trustworthy. The work was excellent, fair in price and completed on time. I would recommend Darko and his team highly for many of your home renovation needs.

I found Darko’s work to be thorough and of excellent quality. I had a number of projects to complete in a short timeframe and he finished things on schedule. He was very responsive and accountable, a quality rare in a contractor. I never had to call to bug him about finishing a job! I would highly recommend him.

Darko did a beautiful job renovating our apartment, from replacing the floor and installing a new kitchen to building bookshelves. He and his crew are highly skilled and resourceful, as well as reliable and efficient. We also really enjoy his upbeat attitude. We recommend him highly!

A rarity in DC’s residential construction, Darko was communicative, creative and honestly priced. He showed up precisely when he said he would and was a confident, knowledgeable presence during what could have otherwise been a stressful time. He was an amazing problem-solver when it came to fitting new high-tech appliances into my tiny, 1920’s era kitchen. I’m certain my house sold as quick as it did thanks to Darko’s flawless work.

Darko came into my new home and really made it mine. His team did an exceptional and efficient job painting. More importantly, I had a vision for renovating built-in shelves that Darko was able to translate flawlessly. He built them by hand and was able to match them perfectly to the flooring in my home. Since then, he’s been readily available to help with jobs big and small.

Darko is an absolute treasure. He’s responsive, considerate, communicative, and the quality of his work is superb. He’s fantastic for projects big and small — I’ve worked with him on everything from changing some locks to redoing an entire English basement. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

I’ve relied on Darko to respond to the needs of my tenants on countless occasions. Whether it’s a small repair or a remodeling project, he’s always ready to jump in. His pricing is competitive, his work is faultless, and he’s a great communicator.
