In 1907, Albert B. Hodges, Sr. began his lifelong career as a window repairman. Over the years, he was joined by several of his brothers and brothers-in-law, establishing a family business that has withstood the test of time by adapting to the changing needs of homeowners in the Washington, DC area. During World War II, the company began installing home insulation to help a nation at war conserve fuel.
When Jack Hodges was discharged from the Army Air Corps in 1946, he helped his father build a full-service construction company. Over the years, father and son found remodeling and renovation more challenging than new construction, and they chose to focus their expertise on window and door replacement and renovation.
In 1972, Albert B. Hodges, Jr. joined his brother, and the two operated the business together until 1983 when Jack retired. Mark Russow joined the company in 1980, and in 1994, he became Vice President and co-owner. Today, Mark runs the company with the assistance of many long-term employees, continuing the family tradition that for a century has made Hodges a trusted name in windows and doors.
The whole process from initial meeting to installation was painless and quite surprisingly, a lot less expensive than we thought it would be... Thanks again for taking such good care of us. If anyone I know is looking for new windows, I will certainly recommend your company.
We love our new door. The installation work was timely, quick and well-done.
I couldn't be more pleased with both my windows and the installation and now "on a clear day I can see forever". If you would like to use me as a reference I would be more than happy to cooperate.
The installer, who I think was Tom Langworthy, did excellent work. He was respectful of our space and cleaned up after himself. He always conducted himself in a professional manner. He seems highly competent and he engenders confidence in his workmanship.
Your craftsmanship made all the difference, and it was nice getting to know you. We hope to hire you again.
Before, we could never keep up with the cold. Now we just turn the heat on, and it stays in the building. Complaints are way down, and we're very happy.
I think they did a very good job. I will go back to them in a heartbeat.
Throughout the entire process - from our first meeting to the on-going daily supervision - by you of the job, the professionalism, the quality of the products, and the workmanship
We are so very, very happy (once again!) with the Hodges Company....this is the third time we have had a project completed, and each time we've been so pleased.
Thank you so much for fixing my window today! Thank you for coming even though these windows aren't yours......No wonder the management office here thinks you guys can do anything and are the most helpful window company around.
Your guys did a great job. The temperature in the house is up by 3 degrees and the heat pump is running half as much.
I want you to know that your two colleagues who installed the windows did an outstanding job...Jean and I could not be more pleased.
Tom is definitely a master craftsman and did an excellent job. Just want you and the company to know that both Tom and Larry did an outstanding job and we are very pleased with the results.
I wouldn't deal with anyone else. Working with Hodges, I know I can get anything I want, and my imagination can run wild.
I am so pleased with my windows, your installers and staff. I would indeed recommend your company to anyone and everyone. They were quick, efficient and very polite.
Everything was excellent. The salesman offered good advice and provided examples of how the end result would look. Hodges' workers arrived on time and worked quickly. The lead installer was quite knowledgeable as well, so the job was done neatly and without incident.
All in all a really fantastic company - they've been in business a long time and it shows based on how they treat the costumer. Am planning to do windows next year, and they will be my first phone call.
I just wanted to express my appreciation to the team your company sent to install a few doors and repair windows in our house. They were professional, caring, cooperative and extremely courteous. They are a major asset to your company. On the whole, our experience with the Hodges Company has been very positive and we happily recommend your services to others.
Hodges had very knowledge salespeople, highly skilled installation crews, and the product lives up to expectations. You can't ask for better than that.
We will definitely be using Hodges again when we look to replace some windows in our house
We enjoyed meeting with Brian Whitehouse and were impressed with his ability to explain our options, always respecting our wishes and never annoying us with hard-sell tactics...It was such a pleasure to deal with people who know their job and do it well.
The deck door is fabulous and the installation is super!!! I love how wide it is, and how easily it opens and it actually locks! thank you for the expert product and installation.
I must tell you that Mark Russow and everyone at The Hodges Window Company are nothing less than a great representative/distributor for your company and we will not hesitate to recommend both companies to our friends and family.
