I was called quickly to set up an appointment- He kept the appointment and gave us a price. We were given a price and a date was made for the service and he kept the date-did the work and the job was done very well. We are very happy with Smart general Contracting- Several other contractors never called us back-Highly recommended

Joel and his brother were very professional and kept us informed on the progress of the project. The price was very reasonable for a job well done! Would hire again for other projects. Thank you very much for completing the job in less than a week.

Review by in Ellicott City, MD
My husband contacted Smart General Contracting to perform several home improvement projects on the new home we recently purchased. We're so glad he did. Joel and his crew updated our kitchen by installing all new appliances, back splash, quartz counter tops, new light fixtures and much more. Joel helped us design and completely remodel our powder room into a beautiful new full bath. The glass tile and new rainfall shower fixture look absolutely stunning! The new carpet and wood floors they installed throughout our home look fantastic. We are very pleased with the attention to detail of the rooms they painted for us as well. Joel was in constant communication with us regarding the status of our home improvement projects, informing us immediately of any issues that arose. He was also very apt at offering feasible solutions to those issues. We truly appreciate all of the high quality, reasonably priced and professional work performed by Joel and his crew. We love how our new home looks now! We are currently preparing a new list for Smart General Contracting for phase 2 of our home improvement projects.

Review by
Project: Remodel a Kitchen
I waited to write this review. I didn’t want to write a review angry, however it gets worse every time I look at the kitchen!! If it weren’t for his worker David I would give the owner a 0. Things are coming apart. My hood vent exhaust was tapped to a window in my attic with about 10 feet of piping the cost to fix this problem is approximately $900. Cabinet doors are not leveled which makes the handles look off. There are places where I had put test paint on walls and it still shows through the paint when the sun hits it. I now have bubbling where crown molding was installed. When people come over they point out where the sanding was done bad. I am constantly finding more and more things done incorrectly. The flooring that was installed is sinking and making noise when you walk on it. I hired a contractor because I thought I was going to have someone who was experienced, instead I had someone who complained that I wanted things perfect. YES I wanted things perfect that’s what I paid for otherwise I could have done it myself and screwed it up. HORRIBLE. I beat myself up everyday for paying him the remaining balance but I just wanted him out. If you are looking for a contractor who is never there, measures wrong and tries to cut corners I.e. putting thick pieces of rubber to make doors look even. Then he’s your guy!!

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. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
