Scope of Project:
– New wood flooring on entire first floor
– New cabinets, countertops and appliances in the kitchen and powder room
– Remove old bulkheads and move doorways
– Install new Lighting

John is an experienced General Contractor. He interfaced seamlessly with all subcontractors, (design, cabinet, countertop, flooring, electrical, plumbing and roofing) to insure that the project stayed on schedule and on budget.
He was attentive to all client issues and answers all questions.
His input and suggestions were invaluable. He provided weekly written updates of work completed and a schedule of all pending items.

Johns’s personal crew was responsible for all removal and disposal of all old cabinets and appliances. They did all the carpentry, wall boarding, and painting. Their attention to detail was excellent. They were always punctual, courteous, and cleaned up the worksite very night. They are true craftsmen in the truest sense of the word in an era where their skills are hard to find.

In summary John Phillips met and exceeded my expectations and I would recommend he and his team without reservation. I have scheduled them to paint my home this spring.

We had the pleasure of using PHI to renovate our laundry and powder room.
This was my first renovation in our house, so I was nervous.

Well, I immediately liked John from the moment I met him. He looked over my project thoroughly and came back to me immediately with his contract. He also provided me with a list of vendors that he had used over his years in business. John, his staff and vendors were amazing to work with. Very professional, courteous and timely. I could tell the vendors that he recommended really respected John.

I feel very fortunate to have worked with John and his staff. Thank you for my amazing laundry room.
(My husband even loves the room, although he never does laundry)

My wife and I are delighted with our master bathroom remodel. John kept us informed of work progress every step of the way, and coordinated the delivery of materials, making sure everything was as it should be. It was easy to work with him on the details of the remodel and choices to be made, while the work was ongoing. John, Carlos, and Umberto are pleasant, courteous, careful, and professional. We now have a brand new master bathroom that we love using!

We are very happy with our new kitchen. PHI was very professional and courteous every step of the way. We were especially impressed that John made the initial trip down to our home on a Saturday to accommodate my work schedule, and then came back on a Saturday to present the proposal to us.John was always very responsive. We never waited long for a return call. That was very important to us. We had some bad experiences regarding communication with various other contractors before PHI.It is clear that PHI’s goal is total customer satisfaction. There were very few issues that arose but when they did, they were handled swiftly with the attitude that our happiness was of utmost importance.We were extremely impressed by the way PHI worked hard to keep construction debris to a minimum and with how well they cleaned up the work area at the end of each day. Because the job was completed so quickly, it really wasn’t a terrible inconvenience not having a fully functional kitchen during the process.We are glad to have found John Phillips and would whole-heartedly recommend PHI to anyone looking for a home improvement specialist!
Thank you once again PHI.

John and his team delivered on their beautiful lower level project,
on-time and on-budget!

They listened to our needs and not only built a beautiful basement, but were also constantly thinking of ways to make the final product better than expected.
They were truly invested in creating a product that we would be thrilled with and they succeeded. The lower level has been so wonderful; PHI made this time less difficult for us.

We are very pleased and look forward to working with them again.

Recently we had the pleasure of using PHI, Phillips Home Improvement, to remodel our two bathrooms. From beginning to end, John and his crew were professional, personable, communicative and efficient. John kept us informed and any call we made or message we left was answered promptly. Any concern that arose was handled. We were on vacation for a week during one part of the installation and John kept us up to date with texts and photos. The results are amazing. The biggest compliment we can give PHI is that we will hire them again in the spring to redo our kitchen.

Michele and I wanted to write and thank you for the outstanding work you and your team produced for our home renovations and rejuvenation project. We are winding down a whirlwind of summer activities at our new Annapolis home and your work set the stage for many “wow moments” that our guests shared.

From the first meeting with John, he was attentive to our wishes, offering guidance when we asked, and introducing us to some of the best craftsmen and suppliers in the area. At every turn, whether it was flooring, cabinetry, granite, tile, lighting, plumbing, painting, wood working, etc., the people that John brought to the project were professional, highly engaged and awesome to work with.

Even though the home was only 15 years old, deferred maintenance items were discovered along the way and John guided us through the project with confidence, identifying issues and more importantly finding solutions. We could not be more proud of the creative effort and the outstanding outcome.

This summer we were very proud to host you along with many of the contractors who put their best efforts forward to turn this house into our home. The evening was a huge success, and you could see the pride on the faces of many of the attendees and their families.

Perhaps most important to us, is that after the project, you and Lydia were still there for us, helping with any warranty issues and today, not only do we have a beautiful “new” home, but we have two very good friends in the area. Michele and I are blessed to have met you and are thankful to our homes previous owner for the introduction. Please encourage any potential customer to contact us to either showcase your work, or discuss their project and your ability to meet their needs. We continue to tell all of our friends of the outstanding work performed by your team.

Best wishes for continued success!

We found Phillips Home Improvements in the Davidsonville newsletter, The Villager. Two things stood out, the fact that they were local and they had been recognized by The Capitol newspaper Readers Choice thee years in a row for best home improvement company. When John came out to give us an estimate, he was very concise on what needed to be done, how they would do it and how long it would take. He also gave us information on where to pick out the tub and tile that we needed,saying he would handle it from there. This was especially nice as we didn’t have to shop all over town or deal with deliveries. His estimate was very fair and his invoices were easy to read and complete. When the work began, John and his son Dan covered the floors and carpets to protect them. At the end of the day everything was left clean and orderly. They were friendly and professional but most importantly they did a beautiful job. We love our fresh new bathroom. Thanks guys!!

The entire team could not have been more respectful, and we greatly appreciate the focus on communication and keeping us involved in all decisions big and small along the way.

Thank you John and Lydia. We couldn’t be happier with our finished basement. The kids want to move down there permanently! The floor was swept and equipment arranged at the end of the construction workday so we could enjoy the progress without fear of nails, etc. We trust PHI so much that we had them paint the outside of our house while we were on vacation. Our neighbors thought we were crazy until they saw the finished product.
Thanks again.

Set for Life!

Thanks to the recommendation of my real estate agent, I need look no further for any future work on any home that I might own. Phillips Home Improvements has been my go-to source for jobs large and small as I identified the maintenance and repair work needed to put my house on the market. We began with power washing decks and painting one room, and have moved on from there in a steady sequence of jobs big and small as tasks have been checked off my to-do list. All of the work has been done in a timely, responsive, and highly professional manner. I couldn’t have done better than to be working with John and Lydia Phillips.

We appreciate your hard work and dedication to our project in “This Old House” of ours. Over the years we have had several different companies do renovation work on our house. None have anything to compare with the level of expertise and professionalism of John Phillips and his crew.

We cannot brag about you enough! It was a wonderful experience to have worked with you.

When we began our search for a general contractor to renovate our small master bath, we asked friends and top line suppliers for recommendations. The consensus was John Phillips at Phillips Home Improvements. John took our vision to change a closed-in small master bath with a “phone booth” shower into an open airy space and turned it into reality by listening to our goals and recommending realistic solutions at a fair price. John was always professional and respectful of our spaces and our opinions. He demonstrated the highest levels of professionalism and integrity in all his relations with his subcontractors and us. The level of craftsmanship in his work is outstanding. The project came in on time, on budget and exceeded our expectations…you can’t ask for more than that!

The other key member of the PHI team is Lydia Phillips. She is a pleasure to deal with and provides real continuity and contact between the customer and PHI. She responds almost immediately to e-mail and is available on the phone, a rarity these days, and, when we had questions, got answers back to us to smooth the process and keep everything on schedule.

I wanted to say THANKS for doing such a great job on our kitchen! The top is being delivered/installed today and soon everything should be totally functional. I was very impressed with the attention to detail in your work and how totally organized you were. And the overall assistance/ideas you provided, were very much appreciated. When things seem to get a bit challenging on our end (Appliances not being delivered on time by Home Depot and then the microwave opening not being large enough – due to our designer’s measurements being off), you were very helpful in getting us through it.

We are very pleased with the work you performed on our project. Thanks very much!

We have just had an excellent experience with PHI!

When we called you about our insurance claim for damages due to a flooding fixture, they responded immediately. John visited our property and provided us with an estimate within days. John gave us a timetable that was workable and he and his crew stuck to it. The team was neat, polite and respected our privacy thoroughout the project. Every repair that was in the contract was completed in a timely fashion and right on budget. The workmanship was first class.

Thank you!

It was a great experience and so well organized and accomplished.

Our experience with Phillips Home Improvement was extremely enjoyable. They had us utilize our lead time to select the perfect product for our kitchen back splash project. Phillips gave us suggestions as to where to purchase our products and was forthwith about pricing and costs. The project was started on time and finished on time with no hiccups. I have recommended and will continue to recommend Phillips Home Improvement to all my friends and associates. Everyone who sees the project talks about how beautiful it looks.

We had a tile backsplash installed in the kitchen of our home in June by Phillips Home Improvement. They were delightful and extremely professional to work with and I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. They would certainly be at the top of my list if I were doing any additional remodeling.

We are so pleased with our newly finished basement! The end result exceeded our expectations!

Daily, John kept us informed of the progress and plans of their work, arrived on time and left the workspace clean and tidy at the end of each day. And, always, graciously, allowed for owner adjustments to the plans!!! For example, after framing our existing fireplace, we were not satisfied with the old mantel. After considering several options, John designed and built us a beautiful custom wood mantel. The result is perfect!

We have used Phillips Home Improvements on many home projects over the years…from indoor work—a partial kitchen remodel, custom cabinetry, painting, door and window treatments and outdoor painting, deck work and landscaping. We are always pleased with the quality of his work and that of his hard working (and delightful) crew!

Always a pleasure and always easy to know who to call for the next project!

When it was time for us to build-out our entire lower level, we were told that John, with PHI, was the very best in town. From day one, we were so impressed with John’s business ethics, quality to detail and craftsmanship. He one of the most honest, meticulous, efficient, reliable, punctual, and creative professionals we have had the honor to work with. His expertise in communicating and executing the project made it such a pleasurable and exciting experience. When the work was completed at the end of each day, not a speck of dust or a nail was left behind. Our lower level was completed ahead of schedule, and is absolutely beautiful and perfect to the tee. Many neighbors have told us that our lower level is one of most awesome and prettiest in our community. Yes, John you are the “Best in Town”.

There is absolutely no one else that I would ever call after having John and his group renovate my house. I find them all to be professional, considerate and reliable. The work they do is of the highest quality. They start the job and come every day until it is finished. Just see for yourself in the pictures of the things they have done for me.

We met John Phillips at just the right time. Our previous contractor had nearly completed a major kitchen/family room/laundry room renovation and left us high and dry with all the finish work. Not only did John and his crew do a beautiful job, but also they were so polite, considerate and CLEAN! They showed so much respect for our home. We then hired them to remodel one of our bathrooms and, once again, they came through. We had a major time crunch and still they managed to fit our job into their already packed schedule. With several big jobs left at our home, Phillips Home Improvement will be the first ones we call.

The workmanship and value are always outstanding, there’s no drama with County inspections and John is an absolute pleasure to work with. Cindy loves the fact that John’s worksites are always clean and tidy at the end of the day. John just finished enclosing a porch for us and we are already planning our next projects with him.

As a Real Estate Professional, I often have a need for quality professionals to assist clients. I first came across Phillips Home Improvement when I had an urgent need on behalf of a client. John Phillips was recommended to me by another Real Estate agent. Not only did he complete the job in record time, but the clients were really impressed with his workmanship and professionalism. From that time on, John was my first call when a Home Improvement project needed to be done for a client. When it came time to do a project at my personal home, I called John. My husband and I were just thrilled with the results! Our home has been transformed. John and his staff did a really fantastic job that exceeded our expectations in every way. I would recommend John Phillips and Phillips Home Improvement for any Home Improvement project big or small.

Master Bath Remodeling Project for Jim and Diane Rausch

In August 2011 Phillips Home Improvements remodeled our master bathroom. We had obtained approximately 6 estimates last spring for this remodeling project and we felt we had selected the best contractor for the job. One never knows whether they have made the right selection, but from the time John Phillips began his work, we knew we had made the right choice. We were extremely pleased with the project from start to finish. John Phillips began and completed the job when he said he would and all of his sub-contractors were of very high caliber. The crew was efficient, courteous and performed high quality work. They were careful to fully clean up each day when they completed their work. John Phillips was on site every day during the project and actually did much of the work himself.

The completed project is beautiful and the workmanship is of the highest quality. We also dealt with Lydia Phillips before and during the project and were struck with her pleasant disposition, efficiency, and responsiveness. All in all the Phillips team was great to work with and we would highly recommend Phillips Home Improvements for any remodeling job a homeowner might have.

John at Phillips Home Improvements has performed numerous projects around our house and is a very professional contractor. Some of the jobs that he has preformed include a new roof, kitchen plumbing and electrical, and installed new decking and flashing. John is very courteous and will go into detail on the work needed. But probably his biggest assets is that his prices are fair and reasonable and he’s there when he says he’ll be there. We’ll continue to use Phillips Home Improvements and we continue to recommend him to our neighbors and friends.

The multi-generational journey with Phillips Home Improvements

It began 15 years ago with a major addition (master bedroom/bathroom/office) and in 2011 a full kitchen remodel. The years in between with John have included various project management contracts for painting, roofing and siding. There is no job too small or too big. The best way for me to describe my trust in John is to know that I recommended him to my son and his wife in their new home. They, too, have now benefited from his master craftsmanship, integrity, dependability and outstanding customer service.  Philips Home Improvements exceeds expectations every time!
