You can get advice and consulting from the top to the bottom of your house and everywhere in between.”
For example, Robert J. Kalmin of RJK Construction, Inc. in Fairfax, who sits on the Board of Directors for the D.C. Metro Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), will provide an information guide and checklist for those considering home remodeling projects.
