Hiring Sam is like getting multiple Contractors for the price of one. He replaced a kitchen faucet, bathroom sink and faucet, and installed a bathroom light and repaired a couple other light fixtures all in one visit ! He is also VERY reasonable about his prices for labor, so when you add that to the convenience of only needing to hire one person to handle so many different types of home issues, it is great ! Give Sam a call, you will be glad you did !!

Review by a homeowner in Soquel, CA
Sam promises to to the work, but it is difficult to get him out to do the work. He had to order parts, and received them but is too busy to show up to install the parts.
Response by Burkhardt Construction: His comments are inaccurate. I went to his house (a way out in the country) to see his faucet because he didn't know the manufacturer. It was an older faucet.I ordered the parts. They were back ordered because they were out of stock.It took 3 weeks for the parts to arrive. They were sent to his house. When the parts were in, he called and I went back to his house to find that not all the parts had arrived.I reordered the parts. When they arrived I could not get aback there immediately, but went as soon as I could. In total I made three trips out there.I did not charge him for all the trips I made.I gave him good service at a reasonable price

Sam called tosee if he could be of help almost before I pressed "send" to Home Advisor. He called a couple of times while I was out shopping for a water heater and showed up on time for our appointment the next morning. He had some comlications due to the nature of the home but was able to finish the project by evening and stayed until it was complete.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
