My wife and I hired Banks and Son to do a kitchen remodel and take down a wall between the kitchen and dining room. Working with Sam was a pleasure, he provided some useful recommendations before we started the remodel. The project came in at estimate and on-time. One thing that stands out with the remodel was we replaced our wood floors in the kitchen and foyer and they did a repair to the living room floor. The floor guys did an excellent job matching up all the floors where we cannot tell where the new floor was started or where the repairs took place. Sams crew was incredibly professional and did a great job. We highly recommend Banks and Sons.

My wife and I had a great experience with Banks and Son Builders. We had a great rapport with Sam and his team and Sam brought lots of great ideas and solutions to some of the design challenges we had. We strongly recommend this company and plan to hire them again in the future. They weren't the cheapest bid we got but they were the best and we definitely got a lot of value for the investment.

We hired Banks & Son for an extensive rehab of our English basement rental unit. It needed a lot of work. Total bathroom renovation. Totally new kitchen area. New floor, which required extensive re-leveling. Lots of refinishing and painting, of course. And a huge job on the celling, primarily for noise abatement. That entailed special sound-insulating drywall, additional insulation, plus a new floating floor on the first floor of the upper house, where we live. Even extensive work to prevent water infiltration. We couldn't be happier with the final result. High-quality work, and visible interest on the part of management and workers in getting things right. It was a project that required extensive daily communication and coordination betwen ourselves and the contractor, and that was handled very well. It was a complex project. Things came up unexpectedly. But we were able to address all issues in a friendly and collaborative spirit. Pricing was very honest and transparent. No surprises. We got a lot of bids. Banks & Son came in toward the lower end in price and, as noted above, we were very happy with the outcome and process. We already have recommended this company to friends, and will do so in the future without reservation.

Review by Rhoda W. in Bowie, MD
I believe a contractor should want to warranty his work, and if he does not do that, there are other options. He has not warranted his work and addressed issues brought up with the work that was done and Sam has not come out to view the issues himself. I have sent multiple photos, and am concerned about safety for my family. He changed the pricing for the 2nd part of our project and stated it would be $20K more than he initially quoted. I did not make changes to what I wanted but after I signed the contract, he raised the pricing $20K+ due to a misquote.
Response by Banks & Son-Builders: This is unfortunate. We do our very best to bring every family's vision to life, but not everyone will be satisfied with the result. This job consisted of three parts: Building a sunroom, replacing hardwood with tile in the kitchen, and a basement remodel. Yes, the original basement quote was wrong, and no deposit was ever received for that portion. There were no price changes mid-stream as this review erroneously implies. We did not "raise the price" as they claim. This family hired unlicensed contractors to do the basement, in an effort to save money. That work was done improperly, and cracked the tile above the basement in the kitchen. We came back and replaced the broken tile. Within 24 hrs that same tile starting to crack AGAIN. NOTE: This tile was installed for 3 months, and only cracked AFTER the work was done poorly in the basement. Additionally, the same tile was used in the sunroom without issue . Only areas above the basement work have been affected. I asked this family to consider that their issue was outside of a material defect or our workmanship, they were not interested in that conversation. I offered to come back a THIRD TIME, but warned this family that the tile would likely crack AGAIN. I told them that after it cracks again, I would replace the tile with hardwood, and do that work at cost. They were not interested in this offer either. Over 40 years in business, we have NEVER had tiles crack. However, it cracked TWICE for this family, and only this family, but nowhere else in all of the DMV in 40+ years in business. They were not willing to consider that this could be something other than our fault. I tried my VERY BEST to fix the situation, but this family was not interested in finding solutions, only blame. We stand by our work 100%!!
