Our Story Begins in 1961

Fred Case worked at perfecting his craft for almost ten years before hiring the first employee. To him, home design and remodeling was about quality—but quality was much more than what was left when the work was done. Quality was about how you carried yourself, how you genuinely cared about your clients and how you went the extra mile to show it.

Those same values guide us today, and we make the same promise that Fred Case made to our first clients more than 50 years ago. It’s the secret to our success and the reason we continue to thrive in the business of home design.

Client Testimonials

Fabulous work. This is our second time using Case for a remodeling job, and we could not be more pleased. The only contractor company we would ever use in this area. Worth every penny.

Guild Quality review, Washington, D.C., December 2014

I was at ease throughout the 6 weeks they remodeled my bathroom, as I knew I was working with experts. They are great at sealing in the dust and cleaning up the work area at the end of every workday. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Guild Quality review, Darnestown, MD, November 2013

Our experiences with the Project Manager, Designer and tradesmen were 100% positive. They took our need to stay in the house with a functioning bathroom at all times and made it happen.

Guild Quality review, Arlington, VA, August 2015

The entire Case team deserves the highest ratings for interpersonal relations and communication as well as quality of the work done.
