You'll always remember your first.
Couldn't have been better! Friendly, professional, responsive, on time and on a budget! How often do you hear that about a major renovation project?
We downsized into an old 1980"s house and needed to (practically) gut renovate the entire main floor (kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms, bath w/new powder rm) and replace the 10 x 10 deck with a modern Trex-style 10 x 20. We never hired a contractor before and were guarded to say the least so we researched all the options (including being our own general contractor), investigated countless contractors (Angie's List, county license, etc) and interviewed three different contractors before settling with Amazing Home Remodeling (AHR) out of Randallstown. Reggie Lewis, the owner, sold us by his responsiveness, approachable demeanor and his cost-saving recommendations.
Once the project was scoped, we signed the contract and ordered our first batch of supplies (custom cabinets take the longest so order those first). Right away, we got to rely on our project manager, Guy Stravinsky, who made himself so available to our calls and emails and was so often present at the job site that we got the feeling we were his only customers (not true). Guy designed, scheduled and supervised the entire project and became like a family member to us. Issues always arise during major projects and ours was no exception but Guy and his skilled team of craftsmen always put us at ease--they were "on it" and never once gave us that dreaded "this is going to cost extra" pitch. Now is a good time to say that they also NEVER tried to raise the estimate or up-sell us on the job, I really couldn't believe it but the price they quoted was the price we paid. The only time the price went up is when we added to the project ourselves and Reggie was always fair (and timely) with his estimates.
My wife and I were on the job site every day, sometimes all day, and watched Guy's teams work through every step of the project; demolition, rough-in, plumbing & electrical, wallboard, painting, flooring and tile, granite and cabinetry. Guy's right-hand men were Noe and Sergio Ugalde, the most skilled, dedicated, detail-oriented and friendly construction workers I've ever met. Noe is practically a one-man show and is so skilled at tile work that my wife and I started calling him "the artisan" and his brother Sergio was as kind as he was hard-working, it was a pleasure to greet them each morning and receive their updates each evening. We were also blessed with new hardwood floors courtesy of Mr. Igor Barbosa whose dedication to perfection and our project were praiseworthy. Reggie and Guy clearly recruit the best!
The project took about two months in all and we have been living in the home for about 30 days. Guess what? Not a single complaint, not one. This could have been the most stressful and costly time of our lives but it wasn't. Honestly, it was a pleasant experience which we will fondly look back on for many years.
Reggie Lewis, Guy Stravinsky, Noe and Sergio Ugalde and Igor Barbosa; thank you for everything!

AHR & Guy saved the day for me! After my parents passing, I had to sell their home in Maryland while I lived in Florida. Their home had structural damage from termites. I spoke to 7 different companies and the prices went from 3K to 10K. No one would guarantee their work would pass an inspection. I really was afraid of being taken advantage of then I talked to Guy and he put in writing that he would not only do great work at the lower price but get it approved by Baltimore County. He did exactly what he said he would do. His team did a wonderful job of repairing the structural damage and had the house inspected and approved. He went well above what most contractors would do and I am ever so grateful! I recommend AHR and Guy 100%!
I just wanted to start Friday off on a good note by thanking you for your diligence and superb customer service. In our short time together, you have proven yourself and your company to be of the utmost professionalism and trustworthiness. I cannot imagine a renovation issue that could, no matter how drastic, cause me even the slightest worry knowing that you and your team are on the job. You've made this project, what could easily be the most stressful time of our life, an enjoyable experience.
I am sooo very excited about the excellent job Amazing Home Remodeling did!!! The owner was very professional and accommodating.. We told him our vision and he made it happen! He provided us with all the options within our budget...he told us what would be most practical with our layouts. They came out to do the estimate within a timely manner... the day of installation I was was AMAZED at the quality of the product! What made our experiences even better was the STAFF ! I will surely use them again for ALL our future projects!
I heard about AHR from a family member. All of the good things he said were absolutely true. Painting a condo is more of a major job than painting a house because there is only so much room to put things and so many places to get out of the way. Guy and Alberto guaranteed everything would be done within 5 days with a minimum of discomfort for us. They both lived up to their word. In addition to the painting, we had a new faucet installed in the kitchen and new lighting in both bathrooms. Everything looks beautiful. This company is a keeper. This company lives up to its promises. This company is only concerned with your welfare and I am totally satisfied with the work they did. I will remove all of the "handymen" from my address book. From now on, it is only AHR for this family.
Love our new kitchen. Thanks Guy, Reggie, Ron and Noe. You did an amazing job Amazing Home Remodeling. Painting and flooring look great too.

We are extremely satisfied with the work done to our home by Amazing Home Remodeling. Guy provided us a written estimate of the cost and a time period for when the work would be performed. I was very impressed with the fact that the work crew always showed up as promised and always called in advance to let us know they were coming. The work was completed within the promised time period with no cost overruns. The workmanship performed by Noe and his crew was exceptional. They cleaned up the work area afterward and all debris was hauled away. We have received many compliments about the remodeling from friends and neighbors. I highly recommend them for any type of home improvement and remodeling.

Amazing Home Remodeling has been a part of our family prior to its inceptions. For many years, we have depended on Guy and Reggie for various home improvements. This year when our family home required major renovations to the inside and outside of our property, the first people we called were Amazing Home remodeling. They provided excellent craftsmanship and customer service to their clientele. We highly recommend them and will continue to use them as our preferred home contractor.

We live in an 80-year-old home in West Baltimore. Because of its age and layout, repairs and renovations are costly. When AHR was contacted and subsequently contracted, good things began to happen at a reasonable cost. A remodeled bathroom, a repaired brick porch, a re-built brick backyard wall, a painted and restored living room and hall, a restored roof, and ceilings repaired. They are not satisfied unless the customer is satisfied. They are professional, courteous, efficient, and work with a sense of passion, pride and an eye for beauty. We are confident in Guy and look forward to other projects the exemplify the spirit of WE CARE. He comes highly recommended to both colleagues and family. Each time a project is completed, we make certain that he is complimented for his great creativity and job well done!

"AHR did a fantastic job on our new deck! We were not happy with the deck that was on the house when we moved into our home. We were unsure about the design we wanted to go with but AHR presented a few unique ideas, including the design we ultimately chose. The work, timeliness, and professionalism that AHR showed were second to none. I would recommend them to anyone considering work on their home."
