5.0 Rae H. Severn, MD

I have only great comments to make for Cooper Yeltin and his crew. They did outside painting of storm door, shingles, storage shed, power washed home, and repaired flower garden. Plus 4 post in 6ft fencing. This was last year 2018! I just contracted him again to replace 10 more fence posts. They were thorough and did craftsmanship work in one day!!! I have additional items for later this summer. He and his crew are just fabulous and versatile and the first company that I call for any exterior work. .

I was originally quoted $7k for a full roof repair (half of what the next company quoted). Once they got there they said they didn t actually need to replace as much as they thought and would only charge me for the material used. End cost was only $5k. I was floored. They could have easily pocketed the $2k. Can t recommend them enough!!!

They are amazing! Cooper is a top pro, his crew is excellent and they built a roof over my patio I always dreamt of! He is super nice, and I plan on using this company for many other projects!

3.5 Rusty V. Severna Park, MD

I would hire them again.

5.0 Frank S. Arnold, MD

Very quick to respond initially, and performed service the 2nd day.

3.0 Mary W. Crofton, MD

Originally Bay Area came out for roof repair and drywall work. We apparently had a squirrel in the attic so he would not do the dry wall work but he tried to fix the roof. The work he did didn’t fix it and he failed to give me an estimate on other work we asked him to provide an estimate on. I was a bit angry at his lack of follow through on the estimates and then when the roof started leaking again I was very upset. Eventually he reached out to me and offered to repair the roof for free but I have already gotten someone else to work on it.

Response from Company:

Miscommunication and a learning experience.

5.0 Denise C. Arnold, MD

I have done many renovations over the years and am quite savvy in regards to right price, great quality. Cooper Yelton at Bay Arae Contracting is the real deal! He did exactly what he said he would do, in exactly the timeframe he promised. His pricing was so fair and reasonable that I ended up being able to do more work then I initially thought I could afford. My kitchen Reno/new floors are amazing! Thank you, thank you! Don’t pass this contractor up!

5.0 Nancy R. Arnold, MD

They came on time, were very informative and did above and beyond what was expected f them. They were very fair in their pricing and did an excellent job.

I highly recommend you get someone else. These people ruined my deck

Response from Company:

This customer was one of those people you can not satisfy, no matter what you do. I went above and beyond to pressure wash their entire house and they complemented me, and even tipped me $20 for my hard work. Somehow, she believed I damaged the deck although there was no instances where I could have done so. I even tried to help them fix the problem, even though I didn't cause it; but somehow they still blamed me.

Seal of Approval

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.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
