Review by in Abingdon, MD
Ed was extremely professional as well as doing a great job. He was willing to work with us on the regular schedule which could have been a deal breaker for us. Great choice on our part

Review by in Bel Air, MD
Did not seem experienced.
Response by TOOL BOX: I met with the wife of this client and she explained that the lawn service they have is going to fast and tearing the hill. I then asked her how high she wanted the lawn cut and her response was " well as you can see he cuts it to high... I told her most of my clients go with mower on 4 unless its real tall, I cut at 6 and some clients like 6 . However cause she said it was to tall I decided to cut at 4. When I was almost done cutting the lawn her husband shows up and walking in the house just say's ..." you cut it to short " and walks in house. He calls me back the next day and says we are cancelling you service cause you cut the grass to low and there was some clippings of grass in the mulch. a week later he post this rating. I attempted to call to discuss cause I am running a business and want to know why a client is not happy with service and to see what I can do to correct this and no answer.

Review by in Bel Air, MD
I hired Ed and his team to rebuild an old deck. His quote was better than any other contractor and he used composite instead of wood. He kept us informed on the progress and always arrived at the time he he said he would. He also fixed a few other things while he was here. The finished deck was amazing. I have already discussed other projects with Ed. Tool Box has become our go to contractor. I have already reccomanded Tool Box to neighbors, friends and family. We look forward to working with Ed and his crew again.

Project: Install Ceramic or Porcelain Tile
Ed responded to my email inquiry immediately. His price for tile installation in our 2 bathrooms was reasonable. He and his crew were timely, efficient, and did a great job! We are very happy with the result.

Project: Install Vinyl or Linoleum Sheet Flooring or Tiles
Did not do work as stated in the contract. Requested that certain items not be moved and they were moved anyway, causing me to have someone to come in and fix the problem.

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.
