Review by in Nottingham, MD
Walter was extremely prompt responding to the repair we needed on our roof. After making the repair, he explained exactly what it entailed and even showed us a photo of the repair. Walter was extremely professional and pleasant. He is also very honest. Our repair turned out to cost a little less than originally quoted after he saw what needed to be done. We would definitely hire Walter for any home improvement needed.

Walter was very upfront about what replacing my roof would entail. He was willing to work around my crazy schedule. My roof was stripped and replaced all in one day....and it looks great! I will definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a home improvement.

Best price I found among 4 or 5 different bidders. Not only that but he used the 30 wt tar paper when most were using 15. Plus he had the highest scores on home advisor. Highly recommend him.

Walter is great. He worked with me to schedule the install and payments. I feel confident that if I have any issues, he will resolve it. He and his group are punctual and had our roof installed in 1 day. The roof looks great. My initial assessment is that it was done well.

Walter and his crew were great. They answered all my questions and explained the whole process. When a problem arose, they discussed it with me and make suggestions. When I saw something I didn't like, I told Walter and he would immediately take care of it. He was so easy to work with. His price was also the most reasonable of my 3 estimates.

Walter's Home Improvement was more than we could have imagined. The entire crew was professional in every aspect of the job, they were punctual and reliable every day they were on the job and did a great job cleaning afterward every day. Mr. Walter Howard was here every day to ensure that things were moving and he kept us informed as to what he was completing and what he was doing next. He was quick to respond to any request we had and that included changing some things. His suggestions were of our best interest which I am glad we listened to him. It was great to do business with him and if anything else comes up that we have to do in the house, he will be the first contractor that I would contact. We would definitely hire him again and refer him to our friends and family.

Walter was very responsive and helped me out when I had significant damage on my roof due to high winds. It was time for a replacement and Walter quickly came out to my place to provide an estimate. I had a new roof just days later! Very grateful and would recommend Walter for roofing work.

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.
