Kraus Remodeling Established 2005
I grew up with a tradesman background. My grandfather was a master carpenter and mason before and after his Army tour in WWII. He gifted his extensive knowledge of these trades to my father who instilled a large amount of this family skill set unto me.
I grew up in our family woodworking shop helping with the next project, be it basement finishing and deck building to roofing and bathroom renovations. I entered into this industry full time almost two decades ago working for a disaster recovery firm and then for a exterior remodeling company.
One of the companies seemed to not be bothered with disgruntled customers and the other treated them as the valued life blood that they are. When I opened the doors to Kraus Remodeling I decided that there was a need for a company without all of the layers and to treat my valuable clients as friends and provide the total five star remodeling experience.
Kraus Remodeling does not employ high pressure sales tactics. Our client experience is a personal experience from your dream to project delivery. We are always looking forward to meeting our next friend.

What Our Clients Say
Matt and his team transformed a 1980s hall bathroom into something we are very proud to have. The meticulous attention to detail was clearly evident in how everything came together. We could not be happier with the results. The work was completed in the projected time frame and the quality is SUPERB! We highly recommend them!!
We had Kraus Remodeling help us select and install this beautiful Provia Door and Storm Door. It was a pleasure working with Matthew as his only concern is making sure we got exactly what we wanted. He suggested this door brand as they have a superior product with a LIfetime warranty. The installation could not have gone any smoother. A job done by experienced craftsmen was the final touch to a truly outstanding project. I highly recommend Kraus Remodeling.
Matt and Ever did a fantastic job remodeling our master bathroom! The tilework is beautiful and no detail was left to chance. They accommodated all of our requests & completely transformed the space!
Kraus replaced my windows and sliding glass door. The scheduler was wonderful. All staff were incredibly helpful and attentive. They were early, wore masks and shoe coverings, and made sure any belongings close to where they moved any belongings that were potentially in their way to a safe space. Installers used drop cloths and vacuumed work areas. They showed me how to operate and had me practice all the possible operations and functions of my new windows and doors. Matthew Kraus called personally later that day to check how it went. Loved the service and intend to use them for any future projects.
Matt the owner was very helpful, right on schedule, and extremely organized. His team was polite, worked hard and delivered an outstanding product. I plan on keeping them in mind for any other future work I might have. I strongly recommend them. You can't go wrong.
The Kraus Remolding replaced my gutters last week, the old gutters are something Pulte developed and branded as "Pultrustion" before abandoning it 10 years ago. The gutters are a single molded piece consisting of the fascia board, soffit and gutter. There are not that many contractors can do with these systems and is affordable these days. Mr. Matthew Kraus very knowledgeable, he monitored every part of the process and contacted me several times to be sure that I’m satisfied with the agreement. Their price was fair. The crew removed the old gutters and downspouts and installed the new ones. They did an excellent job and, they were mindful of my deck, yard and gardens. They cleaned around house, driveway thoroughly. Mr. Kraus also did a follow up inspection after the crew completed their work to make sure all was well. If you are looking for an honest, ethical, hard-working, and effective company to work on your gutters. I highly recommend Kraus Remolding.
Matt & Ever took our design and really hit it perfectly! We couldn't be happier with the result! I will let the before/after picture speak for itself, as nothing I can say will do the bathroom justice!
Great company! Quick response time, knowledgeable, fair quote, work completed quickly and professionally, with a follow up from the owner post completion.
Matt and his team at Kraus Remodeling did a truly incredible job installing my new roof. They made this normally stressful process of dealing with hail and wind damage, simple and painless by assisting me with all aspects of this ordeal. In addition to the top notch roof, gutters and skylight they installed, Matt went above and beyond in helping me deal with my insurance company and lender. I would highly recommend Kraus Remodeling to you for any needed updates or repairs, and I will be calling them again when I eventually get around to finishing off my basement. Five Stars !!! Well done Kraus !!!
Kraus remodeling installed a beautiful new front door for us. Their professionalism was top notch! They were punctual and very transparent throughout the entire process. If you are thinking of remodeling, you give Kraus Remodeling a call!!!!! Thanks from the G's!
Matt, Michelle and the installers were very easy to work with and did a fantastic job installing my new sliding glass door. It looks great! The installation took less time than I anticipated. Michelle was very patient with me as I delayed the install for a few months due to the Coronavirus. Thank you!
I've now had two significant home improvements done by Kraus Remodeling. We couldn't be happier with each experience. Matt and Michelle are local, responsive, knowledgeable, and always show patience with the dozens of questions that come with jobs like these. They even caught a refund I was due that I completely missed so I know they look out for their clients. Their crews have been clean, polite, and they do great work. I will be using Kraus Remodeling for years to come and highly recommend them.
Matt met with me and we discussed our bathroom remodel needs. It had to be ADA compliant and as so often in these situations needed to be accomplished right away as unfortunately that’s what happens with medical issues. Bathroom tub removed and re-plumbed. Beautiful tile and walk-in shower stall installed with built in seat and hand held and fixed shower head. Also numerous grab bars both in the shower and on either side of the raised ADA compliant commode. All this over the recent holidays. The quality of the work is outstanding and obvious to see. Everything was prompt, timely and I can’t say enough about Matt’s responsiveness regarding any issues that inevitably pop up. I will absolutely use him for future projects.
After a VERY unfortunate flood in my townhome, Kraus Remodeling came to my rescue. Matt went to bat for me with my insurance, going above and beyond to help me get what I needed for the reno. Ended up redoing a full bath, drywall and ceiling repair, a kitchen remodel, and the replacing of almost every piece of flooring. What started as a recovery project morphed into taking advantage of the moment. I am very grateful for the hard work that he and Evers put in. I have now motivated several friends to do similar work on their homes.
The timing sucked, but Matt an Evers came and helped me after the COVID lockdown and I don't know where I would be without their help. Thanks to you all!
Kraus Remodeling is the way to go! After talking with Matt Kraus, I knew that I had the right company to do roof work for me due to hail damage. Matt is easy to talk to and explained the process in layman’s terms. I am a happy, satisfied, and devoted customer since he did the work on my house so my insurance company could do an inspection. The roof plus wrapping and tin roof turned out beautiful and the house looks brand new. Due to the great work done by Matt and his crew, I also asked him to work on another project for me. I had just learned that I had two teenage grandsons coming to live with me and they needed their own space. Matt came to the rescue. Matt and his employees worked with me create a recreation area and bathroom downstairs. Each of his great workers took the time to explain to me everything they were doing during the course of the project. Their service and customer relations are untouchable in the industry. I am a devoted customer for life for any other projects I may need in the future. You will not go wrong with Kraus Remodeling!!
Matt and his team did a fantastic job on our roof - we have an old house with log roof timbers and a poor planking job. He came in, removed the old failing roof, and made it right without ruining the historic construction methods originally used. The new metal roof is perfect - it looks great and is well installed and functional. We're very happy with the roof and his craftmanship. He also handled the insurance company very well.
Matt Kraus was great to work with an his crew took their time and did the job right. While other roofs were going on in under 2 days, his crew took 3 full days and part of a 4th to carefully go over everything and make sure it was done right. He also made sure the insurance company didn't get to skip issues that needed to be corrected.
As much as having major work done is a disruption to your life, it's much better to have it done once correctly, than to have to have it corrected shortly after having it done.
Matt made the process easy and understandable and I will definitely talk to him when I have future renovation needs.
When we moved into our new home a few months back we hired Kraus Remodeling to help us convert our basement into a Mother-in-Law Suite. From the initial conversation and quote to the finished product, they were professional, honest and thorough...and we couldn't be happier. They did such a great job that my parents have hired them to remodel their master bathroom!
My 23 year old roof did not survive the March high winds and I found shingles a block away. I asked my neighbor who recently had his roof reshingled if he would recommend a contractor. He put me in touch with Matt Kraus who came to inspect the damage. He was very professional and knowledgeable. I signed on with Matt although I had another estimate from a nearby roofing contractor. Matt dealt with my insurance company to include bringing my roof up to code. The roofers were very professional and well-mannered. They did the job in one day, and cleaned up after themselves. I am very pleased with the work. I highly recommend Kraus Remodeling if you want the job done right and to last!
Kraus Remodeling replaced my roof and gutters due to hail damage. I was very satisfied with the work. Matt Kraus was extremely professional and easy to work with. He is very knowledgeable and takes great pride in his work and in the relationships with his customers. I would definitely use Kraus Remodeling for any future need and highly recommend them.
I am a paint contractor who has been working with Kraus Remodeling for a couple of years. It is truely a joy to work with such a knowledgeable, friendly and trust worthy general contractor. I have been in this business for 30 years, it is rare when all these qualities come together in one person.
Matt is professional and knowledgeable about the home improvement business, well organized and has a great working relationship with his clients. It is a privilege to be associated and to work closely with such a man and I am always looking forward to working with Matt Kraus and Kraus Remodeling.
Our metal roof and siding were damage last year during a hail storm. We contacted Matt Kraus based on referrals from several of our neighbors. Matt was very attentive to us, personable and knowledgeable about our roof and siding systems. He has a comprehensive understanding of the insurance replacement process and was patient and diligent in dealing with our insurance company to make sure that all of our damages were fully covered. He and his crew did a beautiful job on our new roof and Hardie siding. We enjoyed Kraus Remodeling's professionalism so much we have already had them back to remodel our kitchen. We highly recommend Kraus to anyone and they will be our only call for future projects. Thanks again Kraus Remodeling!
I contracted with Kraus Remodeling this Spring when I bought a new home. I wanted a large patio, but didn't want anything builder-grade (plus they charge an arm and a leg). A lot of the estimates I get were really high for what seemed like average work. I'm really glad I went with Matt at KR because he was attentive from the start, and always available when I needed him. The fact that he is a NoVa native helped, since he was really easy to communicate with too. He gave me a comprehensive estimate that I was comfortable with, helped me work with my HOA, and we were able to start the project pretty quickly. The result was far from "average," and I'm so glad I made the right choice. The end result was a gorgeous paver patio, a clean work site, and a very satisfied customer. My friends came over this weekend for a barbecue and they were already asking who did our patio. Thanks Kraus Remodeling!
I had several quotes for my new kitchen project that were all over the map. I asked a friend of mine who did their kitchen and bath remodel and they gave me Kraus Remodeling's number. Matt Kraus came out promptly and listened to all of my questions and ideas. Together with his friendly crew he helped us realize our kitchen make over dream. He wasn't the lowest quote we received but his initial price was very accurate with no surprises. Great communication from start to finish. Will definitely have them back out for future projects.
