Daren Smith and Smiley Renovations did an exceptional job converting our two car garage into a beautiful in-law suite with kitchen, full bath and bedroom area. Daren was extremely responsive to our every question and concern, and bent over backwards to accommodate us. The plans he drew up far surpassed our expectations regarding use of space and privacy in the new living area. The workmanship and attention to detail he displayed was simply the best anyone could possibly expect or hope for. Daren was able to locate the finest materials, which matched our taste, and we are extremely happy with the results achieved. I would recommend Daren and Smiley Renovations without hesitation to anyone. It was a pleasure to do business with a person and company which takes such pride in their craft.

Smiley promised and delivered a beautiful kitchen to us, on time and by a group of experienced and professional employees, Our home is over 100 years old and had structural challenges that were difficult to work around, but Smiley’s courteous and patient staff did just that. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to renovate their home.
The word “can’t” is not in Daren’s vocabulary – there is always an effort to try or to find an alternative. The crew who performed the work was professional, on time and efficient. I will use Smiley Renovations again.
The shop is now completed and it is difficult to show my appreciation. I am not a patient person and I am amazed with the timing. Construction like this take time, especially to deal with the county. It was all done within 1 1/2 months- just awesome. Thanks to everyone at Smiley. I will recommend everyone on your crew to any potential clients.
Phenomenally great! My move and renovations to an old apartment in NW-DC were complicated in terms of budget and timing so the job required a lot of flexibility. I thought the process would be quite protracted and difficult for those reasons. But Daren Smith and his team figured it all out — the timing and the cost — in such a way that I never felt pressured either way. It was quite remarkable, and it was QUICK! Now I have moved in and I adore my place. It’s absolutely beautiful in every detail. The people who work for Smiley are EXTRAORDINARILY SKILLFUL and great at problem-solving. They make creative suggestions but do not ram them down your throat. They are very considerate and polite. They never played a radio or made unnecessary noise, and cleaned up really well every night. They also obeyed the rules of the apartment building to the letter, and were considerate of my new neighbors as well as of the building management. Also I thought it revealing that many of the people who worked for Smiley and came here told me how long they had worked for Smiley, and that they loved their jobs. Everything could not have worked more smoothly and pleasantly from my point of view, and the results are spectacular.Five glowing stars, and I’m not an easy grader. If you can get Smiley to do your work, you will be lucky and happy. And good luck with YOUR renovations!
Over the last ten years we have used Smiley for three different projects in two separate houses. They completely remodeled a kitchen in our old house, and created an open layout (knocked down a wall), remodeled a kitchen, and remodeled two different bathrooms in our new house. In all cases we have been extremely pleased with Smiley. They were reasonably priced, we really liked all of the workers (contractors/sub-contractors/project manager) that they use, and any concerns we ever had were addressed immediately. Further, in all cases they kept to the anticipated timeline. Two thumbs up 🙂
