Are We the Right Firm for You?

We are excited to learn about you and your home along with your project goals and budget. You likely have questions about our firm and how we work. Our initial consultation allows you to speak with a senior Pagenstecher Group team member to discuss your project and any questions you might have. Trust and confidence are an important part to any good remodeling partnership so we welcome this interaction.

It Starts With a Design

To us, design is an interactive process. Our architectural team listens to your vision, then works with you to develop, test, and refine a design that brings your ideas to life.

But what good is a design without understanding what it might cost? Our team will present a preliminary budget based on your approved design. Though not a final quote for construction, this is a powerful tool allowing you to make critical decisions about project scope and costs early in the process.

The Details Matter

With a design you love and an understanding of the budget, it’s time to make your design a reality. We will guide you through the process of selecting every material, finish, and detail. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, our design team will assemble the technical drawings and specifications necessary for permitting and construction while our construction team coordinates the final estimate and prepares for work to start.

Time to Build

The time spent planning is about to pay off, and construction is underway. All decisions have been made so work can progress smoothly and without delay.

Our team manages every aspect of the construction so you and your family can go about your daily life and routines with minimal disruption. A weekly meeting on site is the only time commitment we request of you during construction. It offers a consistent weekly communication to keep everyone up to date on job progress.

Look at What We Created

At Pagenstecher Group we endeavor to create a “positive remodeling experience” for every client throughout every step of the process and we proudly stand behind the creativity and craftsmanship or our work. But it’s the relationships we build with our clients that are our greatest reward. Work is complete and it is with great pleasure and thanks that we welcome you “home”.

Clients Love Us

“For someone who wants to make the “perfect” choice each time, you narrowed those choices down and made them manageable. And most important, for someone who has a rather particular style sense, you quickly identified that sense and thus were able to help me make choices that I would be content with. … As a result, we have a kitchen, and porch that exceeds our highest expectations.”

“You listened to what I wanted to accomplish, designed rooms that met my goals and stayed within my budget, and were very flexible in accommodating the additional projects I added to the original contract. Everyone who worked on the project was sensitive to my privacy and minimized the disruption to my everyday life.”

Awards

We are honored to have received numerous awards throughout the firm’s history. But our greatest satisfaction comes not from a trophy or accolade. It’s found in the relationships we develop with our clients and their reactions once work is completed on their home.

Kitchen Remodeling

Stop preparing meals in isolation!

Kitchens are the heart of most homes, so it’s no surprise they are one of the most popular spaces to renovate. All too often, the older homes in MD, DC and VA have small, secluded kitchens with limited or no connection to the rest of the house. We specialize in creating open, connected kitchens that are as beautiful as they are functional.

Whole Home Renovation

Have you ever wanted a “re-do” with your house? If your old home has history and charm, but lacks the openness you desire, we can help. If your new home is spacious and open, but lacks a unique identity, we can help. We see the hidden potential in all homes — old and new. More than cosmetic upgrades and surface treatments, a whole house remodel takes a global look at the entire house and strategies to maximize its utility and beauty.

Where We Work

Historically, the majority of our work has been focused in the neighborhoods of Bethesda/Chevy Chase, Northwest D.C., Potomac, McLean and Great Falls.

But there are no rigid boundaries, so if your home falls outside of our primary work area, we would be happy to discuss your project to determine if we would be a good fit.
