Craig Knott, CR, is the owner and president of Houseworks Unlimited, Inc., a Maryland award winning full service remodeling company specializing in design-build. Since 1990 we have built a reputation in the Washington/ Baltimore metro area as a provider of unsurpassed quality construction and superior service. Our 25+ years experience in residential construction gives us the ability to provide home owners with the knowledge and expertise needed to complete their projects.

Since 1994 we have been members in good standing with NARI- National Association of the Remodeling Industry. In 1996 Craig completed the rigorous program and become a Certified Remodeler (CR), a designation awarded by the prestigious NARI. The association has very strict standards for this designation and has only been earned by less than 50 remodeling contractors in the entire state of Maryland. In 2003 Craig established NARI of Mid-Maryland, a new chapter, of which he was the President for the first two years.

Before starting Houseworks Unlimited, Inc. Craig worked as a Master Carpenter for other contractors and realized he could provide better service and quality craftsmanship. He built the company on hard work, integrity and solid customer relations.
