Charlie was great. I knew from the start it would be a great experience. He called within 5 minutes of me hitting submit on Home Advisor; I told him what I needed and he said he would work around our schedule; he was prompt, professional, and a wonderful person to work with. We gave him the paperwork, he did the inspection and provided the report quickly. I will definitely recommend him to my friends and family!

Mr. Fields was very responsive to my need tor a quick report as I had put a contract to buy the house in question. He ruled out the structural concerns, but found the subtle problem related to dampness in the basement. As a result of his inspection, I decided not to proceed with the purchase. He saved me from an expensive mistake..

The structural engineer has been very down to earth and yet also very detail oriented while working with me as a homeowner. He offered to be present during the demolition stage of a wall in case of any structural integrity questions. He will help verify that the wall indeed is not weight bearing.

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.
