Here’s what Homeowners have to say about degraw

Bill – Montgomery County

"We got bids from several contractors, but the primary two were yourself and another company.  We looked at mostly 3 factors: reputation, design ideas and cost.  Working with you and Mike on the previous project was certainly a much more pleasant and easy experience with a lot more concern shown on your part that we were getting what we wanted.  That was not so much with the other company.  In any case, the effort is done, we are older and wiser.  I think now that it is better to stick with someone you know directly.  We continue to be extremely happy with the addition and improvements that you supported."

Roland – Towson

"As always, John DeGraw and his associates completed the work in a professional manner, on time and within budget.  Thanks for the excellent service!"

Joanne – Ellicott City

"I just wanted to thank you again for the great job you and all your guys did for me.  You all went over and above - as usual.  But mostly, I want to thank you for being so kind as to power wash my deck for me too!  It looks great!  It was totally unnecessary for you to do it, but so very much appreciated.  Mike did a FANTASTIC job on it - he really worked long and hard at it.  So thank you for everything."

Dr. David & Irma Meyerson

"Irma and I feel so very fortunate to have you design and build our kitchen, you are a superb craftsman, talented and patient advisor, consummate professional, outstanding contractor in every way, and a gentleman second to none!  We thank you for a truly perfect job!"

"We are delighted to recommend DeGraw Design & Build, LLC.  This company has served us well with several products including a complete makeover of our master bath (new plumbing, shower, tile, flooring) and a major refurbishment of a second home for our son in Baltimore that included roof repairs, installation of a new window, siding, doors and a permanent solution to a chronic leak.  The attention to detail and the workmanship are exemplary.  This company is responsive and its prices are fair for the quality of the work.  We HIGHLY recommend them."
