"I love my new shower!"

Carol Hillman

"In January of 2009 Daniel came to our rescue.....We were flooded out in our Montgomery Village home and completely devastated. After interviewing three contractors, I went with Dan because I felt his prices were good, he had integrity, was respectable and very kind, apart from the fact he was very innovative and utilized the space brilliantly putting in closets and shelving in places I would never have thought possible. I highly recommend him. He is an outstanding builder."

“ "Dan does beautiful work, that's the bottom line for us, however...Before we met Dan (about 15 years ago) we suffered financial headaches and much heartache at the hands of several other contractors. Since then, however, Dan has done many projects for us - his work has always been excellent, and he has always been financially reasonable and personally very pleasant to work with. We have very high expectations of a contractor and Dan has never let us down; his attention to detail is excellent. Whenever we do a project with Dan and his crew we don’t have a worry about the quality of the work, the well-being of our home, or that we’re being treated honestly and fairly. It’s wonderful!”

"In our rental condo in Dupont Circle, Dan replaced the nasty old aluminum windows with beautiful aluminum-clad wooden windows from Pella. He did a great job, and was very respectful of and took good care of my tenant...she LOVES the windows. I highly recommend him."

  • “Dan and his crew are exceedingly capable and I’d have to say their work is excellent. They were always pleasant to work with during my office remodel; very thoughtful to minimize noise and disruption to my work as an engineer/entrepreneur. Excellent work, fair, honest and pleasant to work with…in all aspects of the remodeling process working with Dan has been a great experience. I absolutely feel we were in good hands with Dan.”

    Abol Pourhamidi, M.D.


    "In the last 4 years I’ve hired Mr. Dan Fritts to replace 10 windows and a set of French patio doors in a townhouse in Rockville and four windows in a condo apartment in Dupont Circle. While installing the French doors he discovered and remedied a terrible mess of rotted and collapsing floor joists of the second floor which involved some complex work. I consider him to be very knowledgeable and trustworthy and think he did an excellent job at a reasonable price for all the work he did for me. I believe anybody needing similar work done should consider giving Dan a call."

    "We want you to know how happy we are with the two projects you completed for us. The built-ins and the TV cabinet are absolutely perfect in both design and construction. We take great pride especially in showing off the TV cabinet which exudes a powerful WOW-factor. ..a very creative design that is more like a work of art than a storage cabinet. You are a true craftsman and a pleasure to work with."
