5 Star Solutions  are renovation experts with over 20 years of experience in renovations. We provide a comprehensive scope of work for all projects  small or large. Our previous and current  projects include investment property renovations, rental property turn, full gut jobs, 203k home renovations, Fannie Mae Home Renovation loans, room and bathroom additions, flooring, carpentry and framing, roofing, electrical, plumbing and much more.   When there’s a home improvement job you need to tackle, do not try to get the job done yourself or with the help of your friends, or hire an unlicensed  contractor. Unless you yourself are licensed and experienced in the kind of work you want done at your home, your best bet is to call in a licensed professional with Maryland Home Improvement Commission (MHIC) certification to get the job done correctly and safely.  We are fully licensed, bonded and insured with a RRP Certification.

Why Choose 5 Star Solutions:

  • No Hidden Fees: If you go with an unlicensed contractor because you believe you’re  getting a much better deal in terms of the price you are  paying for the work, it is a costly mistake. However, prices that seem “too good to be true” often are. Unlicensed contractors aren’t going to be  upfront about additional costs that will go into the job, and may not be as upfront about any unforeseen repairs that will arise during the course of the job.Licensed contractors have a professional reputation to uphold and must meet certain standards of professional ethics to maintain their licenses.
  • No Boiler Room Trickery: Unlicensed contractors may be more than likely to use the old “bait and switch” scam. They’ll lowball you with a quote, only to send you a change order request as the job begins with items that were either not in the contract or “not found” while they were giving you an estimate for the job. There will be greater faith in the professional ethics of a licensed contractor.
  • Unsatisfactory work: Consequently, you may find an  unlicensed contractor who does excellent work, there’s never any guarantee that you’re going to be satisfied with the results they give you. With a licensed contractor, you know that they have the experience, code of ethics,  and high standards of quality necessary to maintain a professional license in their field. It’s worth paying a little extra for the peace of mind that comes with knowing the renovator  is proven to provide a high quality of work.
  • Not closing the job: Again, there are many different kinds of scams unlicensed handymen are known to perform, one of which is simply taking the money and running without ever actually completing or even starting the job according to the terms of your agreement. It’s essentially impossible for a licensed contractor to pull off something like this, because they’re easy to track down through a variety of sources through the Department of Labor and Licensing Board.
