My husband and I recently moved to Taneytown, MD. The house we purchased needed quite a bit of remodeling before we could move in. We researched very carefully all of the home improvement contractors in Carroll County. As we went down the list of the many companies available, we kept returning to the one that stood out the most. The name of that company is Dun-Rite Contractors located in Westminster, MD 21157.
In the past, we’ve mostly had headaches when dealing with contractors. They would try to overcharge, take short cuts, the work was not done right, or it took forever to get the job done when it should have been completed in a short time. None of this was the case with Dun-Rite.
From the very start until the last project was completed, everything went smoothly. Everything was completed in a reasonable time at a reasonable cost, and you could clearly tell the work was performed by a professional. Bonnie, who is the brains behind the administrative department, keeps everything moving without a glitch. She is friendly and efficient and a real pleasure to work with. Scott, who is the operations manager and the force behind each project, ensures only the best work is accomplished and to your full satisfaction. Working with these two people has turned around our negative thoughts about hiring contractors to do work for us. As long as we know we can contact Dun-Rite to handle future work projects for us, we have a peaceful sense of security and no longer dread having to find someone for assistance.
Dun-Rite Contractors are honest and highly competent. They are hardworking and personable. If you hire them for anything you need to get done, you will have no worries. They cannot (I should say would not) do a bad job for you. It is not who they are. We highly recommend them for any job you need done. We will definitely be using their services in the future.

I’m extremely satisfied with our recent 203k project and found Bonnie and Scott of Dunrite Contractors to be professional and easy to work with. Excellent communication and the work is absolutely superb! Dunrite walks you through the step by step process of a 203k renovation project which makes the whole experience hassle free. I highly recommend this company. Thanks again Bonnie and Scott!
We are very appreciative of all the hard work and, as you know, were patient and understanding of the process and the challenges with this particular job. As far as a testimonial goes Stef and I would like to say that working with Dun-Rite Contractors was a pleasure. We enjoyed meeting the team and having Scott personally oversee and complete projects was paramount in the projects overall success. Scott and the team transformed our home from an uninhabitable shell to a warm and comfortable living space. Thank you for all the hard work, long hours, and personal attention.

Scott of Dun-rite Contractors did a fantastic job on remodeling my basement and the downstairs bathroom. Dun-rite Contractors came highly recommended to me by Kelly Quickel and her husband, Allan of “New Dawn Electricity”. They are polite and very helpful.
John and I would like to express our heartfelt thanks for a job thoroughly well-done. When our new, beautiful upgrade of a door was installed (from a different installer) six years ago, it was the beginning of a nightmare for us. We hadn’t had any problems with our previous door, but this beautiful door which was purchased in order to beautify our home soon began to leak water during storms, ruin the floor in the entrance way, and over a few years’ time moved so much that not only was every board in the frame unplumb, but the door finally wouldn’t even stay closed when we left the house, making our home and possessions unsafe. It took many meetings with contractors/installers, millworkers, hardware store managers, and one home insurance agent over the course of a year’s time to finally get to the bottom of what was indeed wrong — it was originally installed incorrectly. The frame was twisted, out of plumb, and unlevel from the very beginning, and the top had not even been screwed in at all. The entire system was moving further out of alignment for six years’ time.
When we met Scott Wallace, of Dunrite, we knew immediately that he had the experience to take out the existing door system and put in a new one accurately. Scott, unlike others, said everything that we knew was wrong with the door. He outlined the numerous problems, recommended the correct way to proceed, and demonstrated his expertise with the management of the job at hand. Scott agreed to write up everything in order to assist us in efforts of finalizing a grievance with the company who originally installed the door. Scott came in the early fall and caulked around the door and an adjoining overhead window in order to get us through the cold months until it was warm enough to install a brand new door. He measured precisely to guarantee ordering a system that fit our opening. He waited to schedule the installation until the weather was warm enough to do the job right.
When the installation day came, Scott and his assistant Frank were wonderful. Scott had briefed his assistant so that both knew all the agony that we had been through with the existing door. Both men worked with such tag-team diligence to make certain that everything was secure, accurate, precise, and clean, and that we would finally be happy with our new door system. They involved me in the process by discussing preferences at crucial points. They spent eight hours at our home that day — more than double the time that the original installer had spent. The job was unrushed and carefully performed, taking measurements constantly for accuracy. Clearly, it wasn’t “just an install.” It was “done right” and cleaned up better than I had seen anyone do when performing any job at our home. Scott aimed all the way at making it the best installation for us. And I must say that he is the most polite and consistently compassionate and kind man in the business. Even his assistant raved about Scott as the best foreman he has ever had the pleasure of working alongside. When the job was completed and Scott was asked to stop by to check the door, he came right away, assuring us that we could be confident that Scott Wallace was indeed the right man for the job. We thank you, Scott, Bonnie, and Frank for a beautiful, functional, and secure door installation. We will be sure to use you in the future when we consider another important project. Thank you.

“Bonnie and Scott were Great. We needed a contractor to inspect a HUD foreclosed property. Bonnie was very professional with following up and scheduling the inspection. Scott’s bid on the inspection was VERY reasonable and cost effective for the home buyer. It was a pleasure working with both Scott and Bonnie. I Highly recommend them.”

As I have said to you(Bonnie) on the phone, the experience I’ve had working with you and Scott Wallace and Dun-Rite Contractors is the most pleasant and totally satisfying experience I have ever had in dealing with persons and companies in your line of work. It was obvious with me that Scott is very knowledgeable about the work that he does and all of my dealing with you on the phone have been very friendly and informative. You folks make a great combination. I hope you will let Scott know that his very generous offer to make a contribution to the Schoenrich Scholarship for students in the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health is something I have never encountered before. I was very impressed with Scott’s goodwill towards helping others. He is obviously a man of very high character.
-Thanks Again, Dr. E. Schoenrich.
I was extremely pleased with the work that you completed recently at our house. All of the work was completed as discussed, within the timeframe that you estimated and within budget. My experiences with other contractors for various jobs has never been pleasant and always ran over budget. I thank you for being a person and company of integrity. I will definitely use your services in the future and will not hesitate to refer anyone to Dun-Rite!
