We know you love your newly remodeled kitchen by FW&D, and are proud to invite family and company for thanksgiving dinner, but why spend all of your time in the kitchen when you could be enjoying the visit with loved ones. We came across this interesting article on how to cook a turkey in 2 hours. I think the secret is brining the turkey overnight. My granddaughter did this a few years ago and we ate the most delicious and moist turkey I have ever had. Give it a try and let us know how it turns out or if you have a family favorite please share with us.
2 HOUR TURKEY

Below is a transcript of a letter we just received:
Dear Principals of FW&D:
The job was memorable. The overall renovation was performed in an organized and safe manner. The crew maintained a clean workspace even though it was a messy job (lots of drywall work and removal of a difficult countertop and tile in a 1955 bathroom). The completed work was terrific. We were preparing to put the house up for sale and FW&D’s work has really enhanced our home.
The crew that worked on the job was both skilled and resourceful. This included: Mauricio, Eddie, Jose, Juan, Richard and perhaps others. Dave Simmons was there to lead the work and quality-check all the daily and final results. You are very fortunate to have Dave for customer service job oversight. He is knowledgeable and helpful to both the customer and crew. He offered a number of good suggestions that I took when he evaluated the job. He understand the customer’s objectives and is able to communicate the customers’ wishes to the crew. And, the crew works hard to provide good results.
We would be happy to provide referrals. You may use my name and phone number for this professional purpose.

At Fairlington Windows and Doors (FW&D), we always do our very best to meet and exceed our customer's expectations. Our customers deserve it and that's what they pay us for! Therefore, when we get feedback like the one below, it reminds us that we're doing what we're meant to do and makes us very happy that our actions are producing these results. See letter below:
To whom it may concern:
Recently, I had a basement renovation, and follow-on repair to a stairway wall, completed by Fairlington Window & Door LLC of Arlington, VA. Their craftmanship and results were superb. I would hire FW&D again and I would recommend FW&D to my friends. In fact, a friend recommended FW&D to me because she was pleased with their work. Their great reputation was well deserved.
For the renovation of my basement, FW&D gutted and replaced most of the ceiling, walls and floors. The old “popcorn” style ceiling and dated light fixtures were replaced with a modern flat surface ceiling and multiple recessed lights. Sheet rock, drywall and fresh paint replaced the old, painted over, wood paneled walls. Multiple new electrical sockets and cable connections were added to the walls. In one room downstairs, a bookshelf and cabinet combination turned a dull basement room into a comfortable library. Last, but not least, the craftsmanship in the new tile floor throughout the basement was outstanding. This was true particularly at two angled steps leading to an exterior stairway. The tile fits together precisely at angles that required expert cuts. The renovation was more than a home improvement; it turned my basement into art.
After the renovation was done, I had a mishap with furniture that was too tight for the interior stairway. Damage was done. I called FW&D for help and withing a short period of time all repairs were made. Again, the work was perfect. I remain pleased with FW&D. The community should be proud to have such a fine company of experts available to improve its homes.
