"Andrew and the guys at ALC were phenomenal to work with. We had a custom home built in Carroll County that we consider our dream home and they took it from shovel to key in under 6 months. Andrew helped us take our vision and make it a reality. He always had us in mind when helping us make decisions. He would talk us through alternatives and choices always making sure that the products we were choosing were of the highest quality and would be worry free for decades. Most importantly he worked with us to stay on budget and spend our money where we would get the most value, investing in our home. They use only the best subcontractors around which means that the plumbing, HVAC and electrical were top notch and when mistakes happened Andrew would make sure that they were fixed to his and our satisfaction. He was flexible with us and our schedules to make sure we were on top of the developments as they happened. He was advocating for us when dealing with vendors, permits and all the unpleasantries that are normally associated with construction. Andrew was flexible when it came to making changes within the design that looked good on paper, but didn't work in reality. He made sure that the custom aspect was of top priority, Sometimes it's the little things like the job site always being clean with rules posted for subcontractors. Those are the details that make a difference and tell you about the standards of an operation. We are so happy with our new home and our experience, we recommend anyone who asks, to use ALC Contractors."Kjeld and Alisha,
"Although reconstruction of our 2-car garage wasn't in our home improvement plans for the year, the winds of Superstorm Sandy and the large, nearby tree certainly changed priorities.
It was a pleasure to deal with you and your crew to clear the debris, redesign and rebuild the improved replacement garage. You made coordination with Baltimore County Zoning and my homeowner insurance company a smooth, efficient process.
As for the final product, I couldn't be happier. The quality of workmanship is top notch, and I've been enjoying the convenience of the permanent stairway that you constructed to the spacious loft. Feel free to include me on your list of references."
Thanks for a job well done.Buzz D,

ALC Contractors built me a 926 square foot mother-in-law cottage from a design by architect John Lehman. As part of the project, ALC converted the carport of the main house to a garage, and attached the cottage by a small breezeway to the main house (attachment is required by zoning regulations). The cottage has all the features of a big house, on a small footprint.Donna M.,
The new cottage addition, breezeway, and converted garage look consistent with the main house, and even the materials were selected for consistency. It looks beautiful, and just as if it were all built at the same time.
I have been in the cottage now for several weeks, and everything is as advertised, and everything works well. The workmanship is top notch. The process went very smoothly. Andy is very professional and kept everything on schedule and on budget. If there were hiccups, I rarely heard about them .. he does what needs to be done and gets the job done. Andy is very thoughtful and will make suggestions as the process goes on, if he thinks there is a better way. He will also let you know if he feels something may be a bad idea, and what a better way might be. Andy and his crew are courteous and professional and he keeps the schedule moving ... there were workmen here virtually every weekday. My cottage was completed on budget and on time. Oh, and they keep a clean worksite also. Andy is readily available by cell if you have a question or want to discuss something. I really can’t say enough good things about the experience and the final product. I would recommend ALC unreservedly for any small or large project.
