House_803850Mr. Corey McCaskill

We would like to thank Otto Home Improvement who recently performed a complete home remodel of our kitchen, living room and 2/12 baths. The installation included new cabinets, tile, and hardwood flooring, and carpeting. Otto Home Improvement provided demolition, plumbing, electrical services.  The staff were professional and courteous and always cleaned up very neatly after their work was done. We are extremely please with the outstanding quality of work provided by Otto Home Improvement, and look forward to future projects.  We will recommend you to all my friends and neighbors.  Thank you for a superior job.

 Mr. Kent Booth

I believe I have knownSimon for about 10 years now.  During that time I have worked with Simon and his company Otto Home Improvement to do many home improvement projects. Projects completed for me by Simon include screen door replacement, gutter covers, bathroom plumbing and tiling, fence repair, ceiling repair, basement water problem remediation, attic door replacement and probably others I’m forgetting.  Simon has always been a professional, he always takes the time to fully explain the work involved in any project and the costs involved. Simon’s work is always of great quality, he does not take short cuts and does not finish until the customer is completely satisfied.  Simon is honest and trustworthy and is fair with his pricing.  I have recommended him to many of my friends and acquaintances.

It’s my pleasure to attest to the skill and devotion of Simon Nsoumbi in his work to renovate my townhouse in Montgomery Village.   He performed or oversaw work on three bathrooms and the powder room, the kitchen, the living and dining rooms, and the basement, plus the odd repair or refurbishment in the bedrooms and closets.  He also did extensive waterproofing involving the foundation on one side of the house, while preserving the plantings there.

The work, which stretched over several years, involved plumbing, tiling, wood-floor repairs, drywall repairs and installation, carpentry, electrical and lighting repairs and installation, and replacement of cedar shakes in my mansard roof.

At one point a bathroom cabinet I’d bought from Home Depot didn’t quite fit because of the door.   He was able, in effect, to rebuild the cabinet so that it fit, and the fix was undetectable.   That and other beyond-the-call-of-duty “saves” made him something of a hero in my eyes.   He often guided me away from expensive errors in my decisions, able to suggest a less-expensive alternative.   Many times I regretted work I’d had done before I met Simon.

In all cases the work was done with care, promptly, and at reasonable cost.   Cleanup was meticulous, and he and his workers were amiable and trustworthy.   Stressful as it is to have such work done, I found Simon and his helpers a pleasure to have around, and I was proud to show my house for sale in its newly pristine condition.

A friend of ours had extensive renovations done to his kitchen, basement, and bathrooms a few years ago. It was some of the finest work we’ve seen—creative, polished, and impeccable. He told us his contractor was Simon Nsoumbi, Owner of Otto Home Improvement, LLC. We have since had Simon provide plumbing services, repair drywall, and paint in our home. He takes pride in his work and always provides excellent service at a fair price. He is reliable, prepared, and meticulous. Moreover, Simon offers consultation, advice, and detailed information on any services he provides to ensure you are taking the best steps to care for and improve your home. We will definitely call on Simon and Otto Home Improvement, LLC for any future services we require for our home.

I have contracted Otto Home Improvement for a large variety of home repairs and improvements between 2012 and 2015. The work includes construction, plumbing, extensive tiling, bathroom construction. kitchen cabinets….

His performance is excellent. The outcome of his work is of superior quality, fine and solid. The impact of his work –  you get value for money, confidence and happiness in final product.

What do I appreciate about the work of Mr. Simon Otto.

As an engineer, he uses a systems approach in assessing conditions requiring repairs and improvements.  This allows for an educated approach to work to be done and for me to decide on priorities for repairs or improvements and what would ensure sustainability.

He provides alternatives for decision making taking into consideration cost and time factors.  This approach enhances my decision making processes and the sequencing of repairs and improvements over a period of time.

He work is not only well sounded and based on good construction knowledge but also on more recent requirements for occupancy as well as  materials that are likely to be sustained over a long period of time.  This enhances a good sense  of safety as well as confidence in the outcome of the work.

Once a decision is made, he is able to work out a schedule over time taking into consideration capacity to make payments over a period of time.

He take great pride in his work on the finishing effects. This he does at time at his own expense.

He is a family man and his approach considers what it takes for excellent family living conditions.

He carries out construction work in Europe and this enhances his knowledge of latest architectural designs and innovations.

I am away from home a large percentage of time and my greatest joy is that I have placed my houses in his hands in carrying out all repairs and improvements that need to be done, as well as to make assessments as required during times of emergency.

I highly recommend Mr. Simon Otto. I would be happy to answer questions you might have.

I couldn’t be more pleased with the various projects that Simon has performed for me over the years.  He’s honest, dedicated, conscientious, and reliable.  Simon takes pride in his work, and I can always count on him to do an outstanding job!

Otto Home Improvement is expert at whatever job it accepts to do.  Proprietor of the business does not take on projects that they do not have the expertise to do, which is rare in the home improvement business.  He also plans his schedule well and explains to his clients what and when he is able to carry out the work and fulfils that commitment.  He takes pride in his work and delivers excellent service.  I would give this business *****(5stars) for quality of work, efficiency and prompt delivery of services.

On July 2, 2011, my family hosted about 100 guests at our home in Loveland, Ohio. Prior to the event, a plumber spent several hours at our home, but after he left, we still had numerous plumbing problems in the home.

Fortunately for us, Simon Nsoumbi of Otto Home Improvement, LLC., fixed all the plumbing problems as well as numerous other electrical and non electrical problems.

I am happy to report that all the plumbing problems that we had experienced for almost three years have been permanently eliminated by Simon. His work ethic, skills, and professionalism are first class. I recommend him without reservation.

I was referred to Simon by a coworker because he provided him with excellent service and competitive prices for his audio room.  We had two issues within my home.  We had two large pieces of drywall that needed to be replaced in our garage due to water damage and also had a TV niche that we wanted to fill so we could mount our 46” TV but still keep an opening to the back outlets and a way to still mount my audio equipment.

Simon came to our house and assessed our issues and immediately followed up the next day with a competitive quote and schedule.  His craftsmanship is excellent and he was able to fix both issues in the same day!  He even went above and beyond by taking care of a few other issues he noticed in the garage and provided us with great ideas for future plans.

I highly recommend him for whatever the job is because his work ethic is unmatched and I wish him much success and blessings for future business!

I’m happy to say that Otto Home Improvement has done at least half-a-dozen large and small jobs for me, and I have found the company to be very responsive, painstaking, and neat.   I have been quite satisfied with the results.   Simon Nsoumbi and his workers have been polite and skillful.  I am willing to be contacted as a reference in the future.

“I am very pleased with the service that Otto Home Improvement recently provided. Simon and his crew did a wonderful job painting my kitchen, bath, master bedroom and recreation room. They did very careful preparation work and then a terrific paint job. Simon also fixed a few other things in my home. They arrived when they said they would and finished the job ahead of schedule. The price was fair and they were very pleasant and professional. I am happy to recommend Otto Home Improvement to anyone.”

Hope you are well,

I needed several repairs done to my house as well as some rehabilitation work to freshen the place up after living there for 11 years. I contacted Simon and he got back to me right away and we quickly worked out the details of what needed to be done. Simon and his team were able to handle all the work (painting, carpentry, electrical, etc.) themselves and they were available to start almost immediately. As I thought of more things needed to be done, they were very accommodating in handling the extra work.

“I have known Mr. Simon Nsoumbi for many years now. He had done bathroom remodeling work for me in my Columbia, Maryland, home and I was very impressed with his craftsmanship, sincerity, and commitment to quality work. Subsequently, he painted the whole house and several other items of home maintenance work. Before I sold my home in Columbia, Mr. Nsoumbi prepared the home and the home sold in a couple of weeks after we put it on the market. The new owners appreciated how well the home appeared to them. He does not compromise on the quality of materials he uses in his work.

I recommended Simon to friends and relatives who were very appreciative of the quality of his work. After I moved to Potomac, I gave him more work and he built shelves in the family room adding space as well as improving the looks of the room. Recently, he built for my niece a stepped shelf to display dolls for a cultural occasion. He works closely with customers in the design and execution of special interest projects.

I always appreciated his workmanship and hard work. I wish him very well.”

“Otto Home brought in a team of experts to renovate my newly acquired condo. I was really impressed by their level of professionalism and their eye for detail. The work was completed on time and on budget; and on top of that they followed up with us to make sure everything was running smoothly post completion. I highly recommend Simon and his team and I thank them for a job well done.”

“When we unexpectedly needed significant remodeling in a hurry, Otto Home Improvement worked our rush job into their schedule. Simon and his crew were dependable, friendly, and hardworking, and the end result is top notch. Plus the entire project was very affordable. It was a pleasure working with Simon and his company, and we wouldn’t hesitate to call on him again for future work on our home.”
Laurel & Philip Vincent – Howard County, Maryland


“I want to express my satisfaction for the work you completed on the upgrading of our house. You repaired the bathroom floor tile, removed the wallpaper, and applied plaster, primer, and custom paint. You also repaired my flagstone patio and the brick wall in front of my house. I especially appreciated the effort you put into locating matching brick, even though the brick is no longer manufactured. This enabled the damage to be repaired and saved me the cost of replacing the entire wall.

My neighbors and friends who looked at my house liked the upgrading I had you do and requested your phone number. Some have employed you and then reported back to me about their satisfaction with your work, commenting on your friendly and polite disposition and the pride you take in your work.

Again, thank you and good wishes in your future work.”
Alice R. Helm


“In 2006, I used Otto Home Improvement LLC for two separate projects. The first was  installing gutter covers. The second was drywall construction work and painting in my master bedroom and bathroom. Both projects were completed to my satisfaction, and I highly recommend this company to anyone seeking reliable home repair work.”
