About Reliability Home Services

Service Policies in Dundalk, MD


Hi, I’m Robert Matheny President of Reliability Home Services

 In 2007, at the height of the housing boom, my partners and I all worked in the several hundred rehabilitated properties in Baltimore city. We had seen the rampant dishonesty and substandard work that contractors were doing in one house after another, and over dinner one night I posed a question.

“Why can’t contractors be honest?”

Then we hatched an idea, one that sounded cliché.

It’s a revolutionary idea that seemed to have been forgotten.

Honesty, tell the customer the truth….  provide a positive experience and people will know they can trust you.

Integrity,  Do what you say and mean what you do…  Hire honest people, give honest prices, and never cut corners.

Quality,  Provide quality over quantity… Use the very best equipment, products you believe in, and quality craftsmanship

In 1996 he became an Eagle Scout (a distinction very few people accomplish) and graduated from Mount Saint Joseph High School. Soon after graduation Bobby went into trade work. Bobby was a Master Carpenter by age 24 but his mechanical curiosity didn’t stop there. He then joined the HVAC trade where he excelled to new heights.

He is now the installation manager at Reliability Home Services. He is the go-to guy when there is any problem or complication in the field. If you see Bobby in your house you can be confident that everything will be okay, because there is no problem too big or too small that he can’t handle.
