Brothers Services has 34 years of experience as one of Maryland's top rated contractors, specializing in exterior and interior projects. Daren Bowen, Vice President of Remodeling from Brothers, gives us some tips on finding the right contractor for you.

  • Make sure your contractor is licensed by the Maryland Home Improvement Commission. Using a licensed contractor gives a customer recourse if the remodel doesn't go as planned, as well as access to the Guaranty Fund.
  • Finding a contractor by word of mouth is a good idea, but do some research once you have a name. Ask to see a contractors insurance certificate, and follow that up with a phone call to the insurance company to make sure the policy is active.
  • Your contractor should take care of filing for any permits your project requires. If the contractor asks the customer to file their own permits, this is a red flag.
  • Any verbal agreements should always be put in writing and signed by both parties.
