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

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!

Walter has done several small and large projects for us and I can't say enough positive things about him and his team. They are prompt courteous, with attention to detail in all their work. Walter definitely goes the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction.

They responded promptly, examined not only the obvious damage to the roof but checked the entire roof and explained everything that needed to be done. We got the repairs done the same day and the roof looks great. We're very satisfied.

Started out with just the Bathroom Gut and start over. Walter let us pick out all the Fixtures Tile Cabinetry which enabled us to get just what we were looking for not to mention saved us Lots of money. Our New Bathroom is Awesome we did this in 2014 and still looks GREAT with no problems 4 years later We liked his expert work so well we let him design and put up a Roof over our Deck that we never really used due to the afternoon sun, after living her 30 year we now use our deck all the time. Walter also replaced all of our Entry Way Doors. Then he replaced our Driveway which would not drain right, he designed a Drainage system so now no water lays in our driveway He works with you He listens to what you want. He has a great team that is professional and cleans up all the mess. They protected all areas of the house while doing the construction, and ensured nothing got damaged. Answered all of our questions and made recommendations that would make the jobs come out better. Passed his name onto many people who are also please with his work Will use him and his team again if the need arises again.

Review by in Havre De Grace, MD
Walter is wonderful! My husband and I have worked with many contractors in the past, but this was by far our best experience. Walter is very personable and professional. As he said when we first met,he wants to leave the project with a very satisfied customer.His bid was very reasonable and he kept to the same agreed upon price at the end of the job.The project was seamless with very proficient,polite and tidy workers arriving daily until this project was completed.Walter arrived every morning to inspect the progress and if he wasn't satisfied changes were made.When I wanted to change paint color and tile for shower curb and door sill, Walter was agreable and just wanted to make sure I was pleased with the final results. We will definitely use Walter again.We are so happy to have found him.And just to mention,I tend to be picky, just ask my husband.

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.
