Review by in Saratoga, CA
We had to wait 2 weeks before they installed the a railing and they kept giving the run around as to why it took so long. Originally, when the guy came out he left us with the impression that it would take 1 week. This was just a very simple one railing piece of metal for one step. We had used them before (several years ago) and had been very happy. We were definitely not happy this time and did not appreciate being given a bunch of garbage as to why they couldn't get their act together!
Response by Home Safety Services: Custom fabrication of a steel railing and powder coating with both a primer and finish coat and returning to perform the installation typically takes 1 to 2 weeks from the time of ordering which we inform our clients of upfront. If it is a rush situation, we can sometimes expedite things. We regret that it required two weeks for this client as it sounds like they needed it sooner.

Review by in Cupertino, CA
Tracy was very informative over the phone and helped me schedule a visit within the same week. Jim was very professional, efficient and thorough. He pretty much child-proofed my whole house (2-story home) in 6 hours from start to finish. He made great recommendation and did not pressure us to purchase items. I'd highly recommend this company to all my friends who are first-time busy parents!

Review by in San Francisco, CA
The person who completed the project for me was very professional and personable. I didn't feel pressured to purchase products and I felt very confident about the work that was done. It was a great experience and I would definitely recommend them. It was a bit expensive but I felt like it was money well spent.

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.
