5.0 Jared W. Dumfries, VA

Russell and his team are consummate professionals and take the time to let you know every step of the process team. His team always cleaned up after themselves and we throughly enjoyed the entire process.

5.0 Annika P. Arlington, VA

We had a fantastic experience with Total Renovating and would absolutely use their services again and recommend them to others. Russell and his crew were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He did a beautiful full kitchen remodel for us as well as two partial bath remodels, putting in a new window, siding repair and a couple smaller things around the house. He went above and beyond working with us even before the contract was signed to identify materials that we liked so that the estimate would be as accurate as possible, which we really appreciated as it was not something we got from the other contractors we were in talks with. He was also able to finish our kitchen on a much shorter timeline than the other bidders were estimating. Russell and his team were responsive, transparent and reliable throughout the process and we are extremely happy with the finished product!

5.0 Janet W. Alexandria, VA

We had a total renovation of our basement including a kitchen and bathroom. Russell Blake was professional and very responsive. He goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. His crews were punctual and cleaned up daily. I was very happy with the whole process.

5.0 Andrew S. Bristow, VA

Russell and his crew at Total Renovating did a superb job adding a new full bath and laundry room to our basement. In addition, they replaced our existing flooring with Laminate Vinyl Plank (LVP) throughout our house. As new homeowners of our 20+-year-old home, this was our first big renovation project, and we were nervous. But Russell and Tyron came through from day one. They offered a detailed design session, a thorough walkthrough of what the work would entail, consistent communication on change requests and questions, and prompt remediation of any issues that arose. Also included in this fantastic team are some very hardworking contractors/renovators who arrived on time and accommodated our schedule (we have a one-year-old) but also went the extra mile to work Saturdays to meet our project's timeline. Based on our experience with Total Renovating, my wife and I couldn't be happier and are already starting to plan our home's next project!

5.0 Felicia P. Woodbridge, VA

Russell & his team completely renovated both bathrooms in my condo a few months ago. They did such a great job, I had them totally renovate my kitchen as well! His team was very professional and timely with the work that was done! They replaced cabinets, floors & installed recess lights. Everything looks amazing! If you are looking for a company that has reasonable prices, is professional, and has great customer service, Total Renovating is who you want!

5.0 Courtney M. Arlington, VA

Russell and his team at Total Renovating were an absolute joy to work with from start to finish. The quality of work was top notch, and they finished the project AHEAD of schedule. I encourage anyone, be it homeowner or small business owner, to hire Total Renovating!

5.0 Felicia P. Woodbridge, VA

Russell and his team did an excellent job! They were timely, professional and very responsive. Their prices were very responsible and they were very instrumental in helping me make selections based on my price range! If you are looking for a reliable, honest and professional team, this is the company for you! I highly recommend Total Renovating!

5.0 Jeremy Z. Dumfries, VA

We hired Total Renovations to finish our basement. They were great to work with. They met all of our needs and worked within our budget. Communication was good, and Russell or Tyron would visit to check the progress and ensure the inspections went well at every step. All work was completed timely, and within the estimated timeline. Any questions or concerns were discussed and addressed. The quality of construction was excellent, even amongst the uneven poured concrete basement foundation walls. The studded walls are all plum and the drywall finish is smooth and clean. The basement remained very clean and tidy throughout the project. No lose materials and the floor was always swept clean. I was impressed with the level of care, even for our relatively small project. I would recommend Total Renovations for any projects and will be holding onto their info for our future projects.

5.0 Chelsea C. Fairfax, VA

We had a wonderful experience with Russell and Total Renovating. They remodeled our kitchen and put new flooring across our entire bottom floor, including having to take apart and re-install our bathroom to do so. They were fast and efficient but delivered high quality work. Our kitchen turned out even better than we could have imagined. They took us from a 1980's kitchen to a totally modern look that literally gets a "Wow!" from everybody who has seen it. Russell helped us tremendously from start to finish. He showed us exactly what our kitchen would look like, taking us step by step through each decision, and then directed us to each vendor for us to make our design choices. He was always available for any question we had along the way. His vendors are US-based so there was zero concern with the timing of materials. I felt very secure with him and the skilled workers he employs. The best part is that we really didn't feel that displaced during the whole renovation. They kept the house clean and took things one at a time so we always maintained some functionality while living there. I would (and have) highly recommend Total Renovating for any remodel. We hope to use them again when we want to redo our bathrooms in a few years!
