We are so pleased with the work Keil Construction did for us on our recent renovation, and we are thoroughly enjoying the results. Jeff Keil’s crew converted a kitchen/half-bath/laundry space into a beautiful kitchen, renovated a bathroom, built stairs that reconnected our basement (that they renovated) to the main part of the house, moved our laundry, and more. Keil’s crew was incredibly responsive to our needs and concerns, and worked with us to ensure the results aligned with our vision for the space.

We engaged Keil Construction to develop our basement crawl space into usable living space. This was a very challenging job considering the low ceilings, duct work from our AC machines, and the lack of window openings. After a lot of hard work, Keil Construction underpinned the entire perimeter and excavated, and the results are exceptional. Mr. Keil met with us regularly, and he was always able to come up with a clever solution for any problem that came up. We have a beautiful bedroom, bathroom now and a very sunny family room that includes a wet bar. We added a whole third level to our home, and I know It has increased the value of our home tenfold.

When we moved into our home on Capitol Hill, we knew that we would need to undertake significant remodeling, but we wanted to keep the historic character of the home. Keil Construction was the natural choice for this project, and we are thankful for Jeff’s expertise. His passion for historic homes shows in the attention to detail he provides to our project, and the quality of the work is unsurpassed. We would recommend Keil Construction without hesitation; his reputation as the best “old house guy” in Washington, D.C. is well deserved.

Keil Construction has years of experience working on old homes, and this was evident from our conversations and work with them. When there was a need for flooring to match our 100+ year-old wooden floorboards, they had it. When an exterior door needed replacement, Keil Construction suggested we remove the transom above it and install a taller door with a glass pane. They also suggested that we retain the look of old, patchy paint on a newly-exposed brick wall in our basement. Both of these suggestions were not something we would have considered on our own, but the taller door looks stunning, and the partially-painted exposed brick has so much character.

Keil Construction has a wonderful design aesthetic. We love their use of old wood and architectural elements from other buildings to add charm to ours. We have an exposed brick wall and old wood built in cabinets that are all beautiful and unique.

It was such a pleasure to work with Keil Construction on the Carriage House project. Even on the walk through they were coming up with visions of the finished project that neither the architect nor I had thought of. I appreciate their eye for detail and the commitment to retain the charm of a building built in 1881 while still bringing it into the 21st century with first-rate workmanship. I loved that we were able to use salvaged wood from the original building and that this wood that told a story became focal points. I would highly recommend Keil Construction to anyone with a project on Capitol Hill.

Keil Construction’s greatest asset is their experience with old row homes and how to creatively maximize space, bringing innovative ideas you just can’t come up with on your own. We collaborated with them, going beyond the architect’s original plan, to find useful and creative solutions for our home. We also appreciate the quality of Keil Construction’s work—the craftsmanship of the finished product is very high.

Keil Construction has a fantastic team whose craftsmanship is incredible. In fact, we were so pleased with the team at Keil Construction that we asked for additional work on our home that we weren’t planning with the initial project. Their vision shows the deep experience with Capitol Hill row houses; the way he can see a space allows him to conceive of ideas that we could not puzzle out on our own. We also appreciated the (re)use of old doors and unique pieces from other projects that were pulled out of their warehouse to incorporate into our home, achieving a high-quality, authentic look in the finished product.
