    5.0 Esther S. Olney, MD

    Their work was of high quality. Nice staff and was prompt. Completed job on time and finished job was fantastic. Wish I had heard about them before.

    Mr. Crowell matched a competitors price and came up with a much smarter way to replace my water main and connect it to my home. The extra repairs he did inside that day were also perfect! Why not 5 stars? In digging the trench to lay the new water line, they hand dug under my sidewalk. But when I got home from work it was getting dark and they had one guy with a backhoe to fill everything in to "construction grade". The guy was working in total darkness and left huge holes under and to the sides of the sidewalk edge. Had that hole under the sidewalk been filled by shovel, it wouldn't have collapsed. The county inspector relayed my complaint to the company but I heard nothing back. Other than that, great work and competitive price.

    Tub removed and walk in shower installed. Very professional company. Robert and his crew explained everything they were doing. They were so neat. Never knew they were working in my bathroom. I would give them 10 stars!! What a great company and wonderful people. Thank you Robert!!!

    Mr. Crowell was Knowledgeable, Moved Super fast to fix my problem and made us feel like he actually cared about getting the job done right! I had several estimates done and A R Crowell outdid them ALL! Although we should be ok with plumbing for awhile, I WILL keep them for recommendations, the experience was great and we didn’t feel like we got robbed when we paid them! Awesome family owned business!!

    5.0 Vincent C. Elkridge, MD

    Cost, schedule, and performance. This company outperforms competitors in all area. I cannot give this company a higher recommendation. They were reasonably priced, came on time and replaced our main water line in our foundation. This was a complicated job that could have had cost over runs but they completed the job on time and on budget as promised. Choose this company and get the job done right.

    5.0 Deborah T. Laurel, MD

    They were the first to call and gave the most competitive cost out of the 3 estimates I received. They knew exactly what the problem was and went in and fixed the problem. They even followed up to ensure I was satisfied with the work. I’m very satisfied with the work that was done.

    4.5 Mike C. Olney, MD

    They are fast, efficient and quite knowledgable with years of experience.

    What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
    5. Sex Offender Search
      We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.

      We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
