Testimonials

“Zelaya is a family business with a cohesive, tight-knit group of employees who go out of their way to make their customers happy. Each member, all the way up to the owner, takes an active interest in your project, on-site every day and more than willing to talk on the phone or communicate by email. Our project manager was the best of all the contractors that came to provide an estimate for the work – she knew more than any of the others! Everyone makes changes during a remodel and Zelaya never fails to accommodate. I rate Zelaya very highly. The quality of the company’s work, the kindness and respectfulness of the staff, and most of all the honesty, integrity, and commitment to its work and its clients are first rate.”

“After placing an inquiry on a neighborhood list serve we were referred to Zelaya Properties. We received three bids and descriptions of what would be done. Zelaya was not the cheapest, but we liked the approach better. The bathrooms and master closet turned out beautiful. We appreciated that we were never without a shower and that everything was cleaned up every evening. Every time we had a question or concern we were able to reach our project manager and she was on site most of the time. We will recommend Zelaya to others.”

“We hired Zelaya Properties to fix the water damage caused in our bathroom due to a leak from the condo above us. In addition to fixing the damage, they really refreshed our 20-year-old bathroom with new grout and fixtures. They also fixed a water pressure problem. The commitment to customer satisfaction, quality workmanship, and their friendly staff who always arrived on time are some of the reasons we will use Zelaya in the future and have referred them to several of our neighbors.”

“We were referred to Zelaya Properties by a referral service, but it was their friendly attitude and their reasonable estimate that were the deciding factor in using them. The entire process remained the same. The workers were nice, on time, cleaned up well, and were good at troubleshooting. The office was very quick to respond to email and very proactive. When they had completed most of the job (and were fully paid) they reached out to me to schedule the completion right away. I will absolutely recommend Zelaya in the future.”

“Since I was looking to renovate my entire condo, it was important to me to have a team of knowledgeable people who could oversee the entire project, coordinate numerous renovations, and ensure that they be completed smoothly and promptly. Overall, I was very pleased with the outcome of the project. I valued the swift attention given to my concerns or questions. I received frequent updates regarding progress of the renovations. I appreciated the fact that no unreasonable adjustments were made to the initial cost estimate for the completion of the project. Finally, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to discuss design ideas with Mr. Zelaya before and during the renovations process. These aspect of the services both benefited the final outcome of the project and ensured its timely conclusion with the least disruption to my daily schedule. I would recommend Zelaya Properties, particularly to people interested in doing large-scale renovations.”

“Thank you for the recent work at my condo. After dealing with several HV/AC contractors it was certainly a pleasure to work with your company. Prior to contacting Zelaya Construction, I had sought HV/AC contractors to perform the full scope of work, which included modifying the existing duct work (insulation) and repairing the drywall. I was pleased to find that you were able to complete this multi-discipline project. As a customer, this greatly simplified the contracting and resulted in the work being performed more quickly. Zelaya Construction performed quality work at a competitive price. I would recommend you, based on my experience.”
— Adam T., Washington, DC

“I contacted Zelaya Properties to renovate my existing 1950’s style bathroom. I was seeking a completely brand new bathroom — one that would help improve our quality of life and the value of our home for re-sale down the road. They delivered on both aspirations. The Zelaya team came in and removed every single piece of the bathroom while adhering toEPA Lead Paint guidelines. And then they worked like clockwork to install new walls, tile, bathtub, etc. Needless to say, I have a beautiful new bathroom thanks to the team at Zelaya Properties. I can say, without reservation, that I would recommend Zelaya Properties for home renovation projects in the future.”
— Robert B., Alexandria, VA

“Now that this renovation project is complete I want to tell you how pleased we are with the outcome as well as with your employees who were involved with us. We will readily recommend Zelaya Properties LLC to our neighbors and will certainly contract with you again.”

“We had a situation of infestation at our condo that involved moving all of our furnishings to a storage area, followed by the painting of our whole unit, replacement of one of the bathroom shower stalls, replacement of the toilets in both bathrooms and tearing the kitchen down to its suds. It was a huge job that no one exc
ept Zelaya Properties ventured to undertake. They did all of the above, including supplying the movers. We felt very relieved that someone would do this at a do-able cost, and the results were great. We are grateful to the team that they accomplished all of the work with the least possible discomfort to us. I would not hesitate to recommend Zelaya Properties to anyone for large jobs such as we had. We have come to realize that Zelaya is as valuable as our condo building manager maintains they are. We will tell anyone we most certainly will use them in the future for any job, large or small, and they they do it all well and, most important, they are a can-do team who digs in and gets the job done.
— Cheryl R., Alexandria, VA
