Review by in Walkersville, MD
We interviewed 5 different Contractors and they were the first. We went with them because they were the best priced and they were the only ones who did not pressure us in any way. They talked with us and made changes to fit our budget. The work was amazing and done in the time that was set. We didn't go over budget a

Gary Sweitzer, owner of Excellent Contracting Inc, proved to be a very experienced, responsive builder. He listened respectfully to our basement design ideas with storage area, closet, wet bar, bath and gas fireplace and gave us good advice. His motto is, "I want my customers to be happy." His crew and subs were very courteous and professional and finished on schedule. Gary gave us a written contract with a competitive bid with the " bonus" of a builder who really knew his business.

Review by in Sykesville, MD
We had a permit issue and Gary was the only person who could work with Howard County to get that fixed. Kudos to him on knowing his way around. But out french door turned out to be a recycled metal fire door until we pointed out that the contract said "french door" - the outside stairs were recycled when our contract said otherwise and I ended up sanding my own drywall and painting around the doors -- when I started to complain he mentioned other 'permit issues' with the house and that 'hopefully the county won't notice" - since we were moving on a timeline and putting kids in college, we sucked it up and moved out.
Response by Excellent Contracting, Inc.: Other permit issues? This job was completed to Howard County specs and recieved a "Pass" inspection allowing this Homeowner to move out? Painting completed by Homeownerr was clearly stated in the contract. Reuse of rear steps was also stated in contract as it was not stated they would be replaced. I have never threatened any customers with permit issues or anything else for that matter as my above reviews clearly show. Somewhat confused here?

Review by in Ellicott City, MD
Gary's first project for us was to remodel and tile our master bathroom. During succeeding months, Gary built a new bathroom and walk in closet in the basement, remodelled the kitchen, and installed a tankless hot water heater, a gas fireplace, and new stair rails. The house has been beautifully transformed. In all instances, the work was competently completed. Gary's prices are fair and his responsiveness to the customer's concerns and alterations of plans was excellent. Works with superb electrical and plumbing subs. Would recommend highlyt to family and friends.

Review by in Columbia, MD
Gary and his team were truly "Excellent!" Gary's quote was considerably better out of the four I got. At first, I thought this was because he would skimp or cut corners, but after checking his references I realized this was not the case. We had our basement totally redone to include a new bedroom and all new bathroom and all of the work was top notch. Gary stayed on time and on budget for the whole project and was very easy to deal with. We did the remodel because we were having another baby and since having her we've had tons of family come through and stay down there. They have all been amazed at the transformation and the quality of work.

Review by in Elkridge, MD
We got our basement finished by Excellent Contracting. The work was done quick and there were no hidden fees, everything was presented to us at the beginning of the project, and the payment plan was reasonable. Gary had great ideas for our basement and it turned out wonderful!!! Anytime we had questions (and I felt like that was often), Gary was available to answer them. We are so happy with our basement and we are thankful that we found Excellent Contracting through Service Magic. Highly recommend!!!

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)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate.
