Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because I truly enjoy meeting new people. I’ve been a family owned business for over 30 years and couldn’t be happier with what I have provided back to the community. I can genuinely say that I chose to do this for a living because this type of work has always been my passion since I was 17 years old. One promise I can confidently make to all of my past, current, and future customers is that their happiness with my work is my number one priority, always will be, and I will not stop until they are 100% satisfied..

We started in this industry in 1980.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

This was the best experience we have had, not only everything was handled professionally, but the man that did our tile work was so professional that he made sure it was done as we expected, the rest of the crew was very friendly and cleaned up everything. Walter was on hand at all times if not in person than by phone. I would and did tell all my friends what a great job they did. Thank you, Walter and your crew.

Review by in Abingdon, MD
Walter's crew gutted, repaired a plumbing issue and remodeled our master bathroom. Walter was great to work with and definitely wanted to ensure that we were pleased throughout the whole process. He was always available to answer any questions or concerns that we had. To no fault of Walter's, the new tub arrived damaged three times. Walter handled everything to get it returned/replaced as quickly as possible. The bathroom turned out amazing!

Review by in Jarrettsville, MD
Walter's Home Improvement upgraded our existing screened in porch to a three season room. Walter was a pleasure to work with and was always honest, courteous and willing to work with us throughout the design and construction. The work was completed in a timely manner and to our satisfaction. Walter always ensured that we were pleased with the project from start to finish. We look forward to working with Walter's Home Improvement again in the future.

Walter gutted and remodeled my master bathroom. He is a great guy to work with, very committed to making the customer happy. He had numerous challenges in dealing with picky customer and out of plumb walls and floors, and did a great job handling each with skill and pleasant attitude, as did those who worked for him. Can't recommend him highly enough. This bathroom is awesome!

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.
