A.J. Michaels is local and family owned. Not a franchise or owned by an out of town business or a utility conglomerate. 100% of our income stays in the local economy, enabling you to get the highest standards of workmanship at a price you can afford. When you do the job right — especially the tough jobs – word gets around. Since 1978, we’ve been building our business on referrals from satisfied customers throughout central Maryland.
