Review by a homeowner in Adamsville, AL
I hired Van Gieson Home Repair in Nov. 2015 to repair my deck, chimney chase from water damage and flashing and shingle replacement. Van Gieson does not do honest business practices and tried to take advantage of me as a homeowner. He asked for half of payment upfront which was paid. His son attempted to cover up rotten wood in chimney chase would my contract stated it be removed, we caught this during repair, son would delay work looking for paint match when we should have been informed of delay, since we had paint leftover. Work was completed but did not pass inspection due to flashing not being installed to meet code. Inspector request that he redo roof work and inspector would return, this never took place due to Van Gieson not returning. Van Gieson also tricked me by stating he could not make payroll for his crew if he could not be paid remainder of balance before the job got reinspected. We paid all but $500.00 thinking inspection would take place at a later date and at this time a invoice would be provided by Van Gieson. The jerk even tried to run us 30 days past due for unpaid balance by not contacting me and had his lawyer threaten to sue us even though we were not 30 days past due. We ended up with no inspection due to incompetent city residential inspector, incompetent city clerk did not verify he had a business license for our jurisdiction. We purchased a permit, checked his insurance, and things could have turned out a lot worse, we never got a invoice for services we paid for or inspection to make sure work meets state code. Do not hire Van Gieson Home repair he will find a way to swindle you out your money. He also had complaints on him for improperly installing a roof with sky lighting work on another home, which I overheard this conversation from his crew.
Response by VanGieson Home Repair: Fact: We did do the work in November 2015. After job was completed and inspector signed off, client refused to pay and made multiple false claims. We litigated and won the case. My attorney is contacting her attorney to give this client the opportunity to retract her statements before libel and slander litigation begans against her.

Project: Repair a Flat, Foam or Single Ply Roof
VanGieson home repair replaced a vinyl chimney and roof damage for 1/3 I thought others would charge. I got an inspection on Tuesday, they started on Wednesday, finished on Thursday! I am so pleased I have penciled them in to re-shingle my home in 2-3 years, very impressed!!!

Review by in Birmingham, AL
It was an absolute pleasure dealing with VanGieson Home Repair. They were very flexible and accommodating. The power company had to disconnect the power so VanGieson could do their work. They worked around the power company's schedule. They were working with a small time frame so that I could close on my house. Steve VanGieson and his son Brian took care of everything. I will be giving their names to all of my friends and family. They were quick and priced very reasonably. I had some siding and framing work done, but they seemed knowledgeable in many different areas. Give them a try and I am sure you will be calling them back for other jobs

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.
