The Dorman Difference

Why choose Dorman Home Remodeling for your remodeling project?

There are over 10,000 remodelers in the state of Maryland, and that's just the licensed ones! It is rare that someone actually asks us what sets us apart from other remodelers, but the answer is an important one. Lots of remodelers will tell you that it is their quality, or their craftsmanship that sets them apart. For us, excellence in these areas are a given! What sets us apart are the little things that add up to big differences but can be hard to enumerate.

Let's listen to some of the stories our clients have shared with us about their experience with the "other guys":

"The guy showed up one day, picked up his start check, and then we didn't hear from him for two weeks" – Not us. We provide you with a specific start date, a set schedule, and a defined end date.

"We never really knew what was going to happen in our home" – Our lead carpenter concept ensures you have daily connection with the activities in your home. You are fully informed of each day's accomplishments, as well as the expectations for the next day.

"The job seemed to be okay at first, but then when we needed some warranty work completed, they never returned our call" – Our 5 year warranty on our craftsmanship far exceeds the industry standard.

"The guy never mentioned getting a permit" – RED FLAG – Run.

"He seemed okay—he was a friend of a friend. But, after this, we're not friends anymore!" Some people think they can save a little money by having a friend complete the job. In our experience, the end cost turns out to be much higher than the price of the remodel!

Unfortunately, the list goes on and on. Visit our design center & get to know us. Call our past clients and hear what they have to say. Read some of the testimonial we have on this site. We think you'll like what you hear!
