Review by in Charlestown, MA
Project: Hire a Handyman
The communication with The Sullivan Co was very good. Jerry gave me a quick cost for the jobs and Andy always responded to emails and phone messages very quickly.. The carpenter, Jeff was very helpful in explaining what he was doing and did an excellent job. Definitely would recommend this company.

Review by Fujian Y. in Lexington, MA
Updated 07/31/2017: I sued this company on small claim court at Concord district court and won. Briefly keep away from this company, see details below. I hired this company to fix the ice dam problems occurred in the winter 2014. Turned out it's a big mistake. The total amount I paid them is over $12,000 to fix 3 places: one area around a skylight, 2 ice dam problems that damaged ceiling. Paul Sullivan gave me 2-year-warranty on their work, which is pretty good, I thought originally. They started working in Oct 2015, and finished it June 2016. Yes, it took about 8 months! I think the main reasons why it took so long time is the bad quality of their work. They have to redo the work time and time again to fix the problem caused by their previous work. For example, one time after they put plaster on the ceiling in the morning, and all the plaster fell off of the ceiling in the afternoon, making a mess in my rooms. They have to come another time to fix it. Another time after replacing the shingles the roof still kept leaking in the rain. They have to come again to redo the shingles. After couple of times they couldn't fix the leak themselves and have to find another company to fix the problem for them. But guess what they billed me for them to having that company to help them out! I just couldn't believe it. But now it still leaks in the heavy rain couple of weeks ago. Although I was given 2-year-warranty on their work when signing the contract they told me like this as quoted: "The work by the roofer is an invoice that needs to be paid. Once that is taken care of I would be willing to send someone over with some roof tar and or caulking on an hourly basis to see what can be temporarily tied in for you but you simply need a new roof". Yes, now they told me I need a new roof. Just found out that this company has a bad review on angieslist at : Wish I could see it earlier.

Last winter's snows caused 40 feet of gutter & soffit & fascia to be ripped off the roof. After several problems with other contractors, I contacted The Sullivan Company (TSC) What an improvement. They set a date promptly, quickly gave me a fair estimate (which was approved by the insurance company), and set a date to begin the work. They arrived on time and completed on time, leaving the site completely clean. I am talking to them about other projects. I recommend TSC based on my experience.

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.
