About Us

Blair Construction was founded in 1987 and has grown to a full-service home improvement contractor and home remodeler with customers throughout Maryland. But we insist on retaining the same attitude we started with: neighbors helping neighbors. We think it’s the only way to do business.

The growth of our business depends almost entirely on the good references and recommendations we receive from our customers. That’s the basis for our company motto – “Your Satisfaction is Our Reputation.” It means that we only succeed when we provide the high level of service and craftsmanship that will earn us your praise.
