What Clients Are Saying About Jesse Smith
They replaced our floors, railings, and complete kitchen. They have been great!! I love my new kitchen. They told me 5 weeks (everyone else said 7) and they completed on time. And they left the job site clean and organized everyday. Great people to work with, very professional.

I was very comfortable with the build services and expertise. I had already engaged outside design services when the contractor was hired. If I were to repeat this type of project, I probably would engage Jesse earlier in the process. Few other contractors, however, offer this service. Perhaps this design portion should be emphasized and marketed stronger. It does mean that clients have to be well-informed to ask the right questions. I liked the fact that my opinion was requested on several tasks (e.g. location and kind of electrical switches; types of windows)

I would rate customer service very high. Jesse and his staff were very conscientious in alerting me about planned visits and projects. This communication afforded me an opportunity to prepare for the project and to educate myself about the elements of the work. For example: I reviewed the different patterns for tile layout, so I knew how it would look in my rooms and hallway.

The expertise, professionalism, and attention to detail of Jesse Smith and our site supervisor Chad Tressler. The build quality is extremely high, Chad is a master at coming up with solutions for unexpected problems, and it comes out looking great. He worked with me on every aspect to make sure I was happy. The ability of Jesse to surround himself with very high quality subcontractors, whose professionalism rivals Jesses. I was impressed in particular with the electrician, Rick, who came up with some unique solutions for unexpected issues. The granite supplier, Goran, also bent over backwards to get our granite done quickly despite extreme pressure on him due to power failures after a big storm, and it allowed our project to proceed. Kudos.

The build quality, everything from tile work, grout, plumbing, down to the painting was as professionally done as I have ever seen. The other aspect is the design inspiration and suggestions of Jesse Smith himself. He was able to pull our master bath project together, within our budget, and make it look like we spent twice as much. In addition, he gave us several alternative design aspects we never would have thought of ourselves.He tends to work with higher end products, but knows what's worth spending your hard earned dollars on, and what isn't.

My wife and I are very pleased we chose the exceptional services of Jesse Smith, owner of J. Allen Smith, Design/Build, for our master bathroom remodeling project. Jesse was a pleasure to work with from start to finish, and is the model of the successful modern building professional. Personable, responsive, and conscientious, Jesse brings his commitment, extensive knowledge and experience in his craft to every project and delivers excellent results. JAS Design/Build customers benefit from the highly effective project management program Jesse devised. He provides tools that aid overall design, component selection, cost estimation, client communication, the end result of which is complete documentation, including all necessary/agreed changes as a project proceeds.

Thankfully, the only surprises we encountered were ones our previous builders left to discover, and Jesse and his team dealt with those calmly and professionally. The highly-skilled JAS Design/Build work crew members were always considerate and polite, and kept us informed of any timing or schedule changes. They performed all aspects of their work expertly, cleanly and efficiently, always keeping dirt and debris confined to the project area – a courtesy permitting us to continue daily life with the least possible disruption – while they created a jewel of a bathroom! We have recommended J. Allen Smith, Design/Build enthusiastically to all our friends and neighbors, and we’re pleased to join Jesse's long and growing list of satisfied customers!
Silver Spring
We recently completed the renovation of our 1895 row house in DC with Jesse and his team.

Jesse impressed us even before he officially started working with us. He walked through the house with us (at our realtor's suggestion) before we even bought it to give us his perspective on what it would take to renovate. That ''above and beyond'' attitude is what sold us on working with Jesse.

Jesse worked with us as we designed, permitted, and budgeted the renovation. At each step of the way, it felt like an ideal partnership.

When construction began, Jesse's team was on schedule to the day. The craftsmanship exceeded our expectations, and we are beyond pleased with the results.

We have future projects in mind and will definitely be contacting Jesse and his team to help us realize them.

We have and will continue to recommend Jesse and his team to our friends.

J Allen Smith did a beautiful job creating a large kitchen and master suite in our 1940's home. The craftsmanship was impeccable. You couldn't tell old from new. They stayed in time and on budget. I have referred J Allen Smith to other friends and family who have been just as pleased. Silver Spring Dale Ave. Whole Home Remodel

Jesse was an absolute dream to work with. This was our first renovation with a hired contractor and he made the process a breeze. He is easy to talk to, listened to our needs, was very transparent, and respected our budget. He was able to take what we wanted and what we had to come up with the perfect design for our family. I would use his services again in a heartbeat. DC 11th St. Renovation
