Celebrating 20 years in business


"I would recommend Steve Wilhelm of Cutting Edge Contracting to anyone having a building project, big or small. Steve has completed multiple projects for us including the design and construction of a single family one, a double car garage with rooms above and an indoor dog kennel area. Steve is personable, dependable and professional. Steve drew our plans, attained all the necessary permits and provided us with an accurate estimate for our projects. All work was completed within the estimated time range for the project to our satisfaction. Steve worked with us on design and problem solved with us when we asked to modify any detail. Steve allowed us to choose many features in our home from appliances to paint color. He came to work each day as expected and cleaned up the site each day before he left. We are very pleased with the work Steve planned and constructed for us! Thank you for your hard work."

"When we started looking for homes, we were going to buy a piece of property and build. That never came to be...we were fortunate enough to look at our house a day before the open house started we fell in love instantly. From the beautiful kitchen cabinets to the hardwood floors to the tile counter tops. Huge 5 bedroom house, with a large finished basement. Open space concept. With 2 acres of property...just what we were looking for...the quality of work is outstanding, and any problems that we encountered were handled quickly by Steve and his company. It didn't take long to turn our new house into our home."

"My family purchased a home built by Steve Wilhelm in 2009. Our purchase was largely driven by the quality of the construction and attention to detail. My husband has a background in building construction and was impressed then, and we remain very satisfied today with the quality of our home. Not to mention the numerous compliments we receive about the design and living space. We couldn't be more pleased. Steve and Cindy both made the purchasing process worry free and I would recommend them to my friends and family."

"Thank you so much for building this house. When I saw the house being built, I stopped in to look at the house. Steve was kind enough to let me walk through even with me just showing up. The house was just being framed when I first looked at it. I later on met with Steve and brought my husband and I knew that I must have this house. My husband liked the house as well so we decided to buy the house. I couldn't be happier with the size, quality, and location of my home. I am so glad to live in this house. Steve let us pick carpet colors, paint colors, counter tops and some other custom things that made this house my house. I love my house!

"My fiancé and I recently purchased a house from Cutting Edge Contracting and just wanted to share our experience. Just to give a little background, I am a realtor who is very familiar with the MD, DC, VA market and had been looking for a single family home for the past year. We were on the fence about whether or not we wanted a new home or something a slightly older. After seeing about 15 - 20 homes, we came across a home built by Cutting Edge and were blown away. It was a moment that we will never forget.

The home was about a month away from being finished when it was listed for sale. Both my fiancé and I knew right away it was the home for us so we put an offer in and thankfully, it was accepted. The home had everything that you would dream of - beautiful hardwood floors, amazing wainscoting, top of the line appliances, custom stonework, excellent layout, etc. My father, an inspector and builder, told me I had to buy the house. He said the quality was like nothing he had seen. They used all of the best materials and took the additional time to build our home the “right” way. Since the home was a month away from being finished, Steve from Cutting Edge allowed us to pick out paint colors, stone, wood-stain, and other custom features that made the home tailored to us. The experience was a blast.

Overall, we would recommend Cutting Edge Contracting to anyone looking to build a new home. Every day, we wake up and are so happy with the work they have done and the house that we are living in. We are lucky to have met Steve from Cutting Edge. "

"Steve has done a number of jobs for us over the past 10 years. His estimates are always accurate, his rates are reasonable, and his work is done in a timely manner. He is also very reliable and is responsive to change requests along the way. He gave frequent status updates throughout the duration of the longer projects. His work has also held up over the years because he uses quality materials and methods. Items that he worked on ten years ago are still in great condition. I always recommend Steve to anyone who asks for a referral for any sort of home renovation or maintenance project."

"My wife and I have been working with Steve since 2005 when he tripled the size of our side porch to give us an amazing outdoor living space. We are still using and enjoying the porch and it looks as wonderful now as it did then. In 2010 he helped us remodel our kitchen and not only did excellent work but also helped us with structural decisions. We have also had him do many smaller jobs and are always pleased with both his professionalism and his craftsmanship. "

"Steve has finished two basements for me. He does excellent work. He is reliable and honest and I would hire him again!"
Rebecca D., repeat customer

"We have been extremely happy with every process of the construction of our home by Cutting Edge Contracting, Inc. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to thank you again for the amazing work you did for us. The basement and upstairs bathroom you designed and constructed are excellent additions to our home. They are both beautiful and incredibly energy efficient and fits seamlessly with the original construction. The work done by your company is beyond compare and we would recommend it with pride to any and all of our friends and family. Thank you again for your expertise and your personal touch."
Gary and Monica S., repeat customer

"After getting several quotes for a finished basement, Cutting Edge Contracting was the lowest by far. When the work was completed, we were extremely happy with the results and received many compliments from friends and family. Throughout the process, Steve was honest, easy to work with and even gave us some great ideas. We would recommend Cutting Edge Contracting to anyone."
Rob and Amy S., finished basement customer

"Steve has done work for us, on and off, for about 5 years. He's done everything from finishing our basement (with a hardwood bar and built-in cabinets) to building our deck (with a beautiful pergola). We wouldn't think of calling anyone else when we want to enhance our home. He is honest, affordable, timely, and always does an exceptional job. We love that we can give him a basic idea and he applies his extensive experience to make it come to life. There isn't a time when we are in our basement or on our deck that we don't appreciate everything that Steve has done for us!!"
