Review by in District Heights, MD
My wife and I originally hired Ray's company in August 2016 to fix a roof leak and repair the interior wall damage and window frame misalignment in our granddaughters' bedroom caused by the water leakage. Ray installed 4-6 of roof flashing ($245) along the roof edge that simply moved the problem down the roof-line a foot and into the same room for more water damage now in a different location that developed after the next heavy rain which occurred about 2 months later (now located at the ceiling area above the original wall damage). The original drywall repair work ($268) and window caulking ($110) was expensive but very well done. Ray had another guy do those tasks whom I even tipped when he finished as his work was quick and he left the work area as clean as he found it. I also, paid Ray to reset a window for proper closure/locking but that work wasn't done at all nor was the payment for said service refunded ($85). There was a follow-up visit in October with an explanation of the current issues (and excuses for still not being properly repaired) along with a $400+ estimate to now "possibly fix" the relocated problems. Surprised and disappointed? Yup. So right now we've paid we still have same leakage problem & increasing water damage, just in a different spot. Ironically, I chose Ray's company because he had the best reviews for this type of work in my area. Ray's Office Manager (Mandy) is highly competent and super nice (hence the higher Customer Service rating). This company just didn't deliver the results and value for the money paid. The damaged area now has mold so I'm going with another company.

Project: Install Vinyl or Linoleum Sheet Flooring or Tiles
I selected Ray's after getting estimates and interviewing four companies. Ray's pricing for my project was reasonable. Communications with the client are excellent. The workmanship is excellent. This project was unique because I had to get a floor replaced while the tenant was on travel. This company delivered a good product one time and within budget. Questions and changes were not a problem. This company works with their clients! I highly recommend this company.

I hired them to do other jobs as well. For each job, Ray would listen and, if necessary, make other suggestions that would make the job better. He keeps to his schedule but will let you know in enough time if schedules change. I am the type of person that have a million questions, and Ray took the time to answer each and every one of them and did not seem to get impatient. I would and have recommend his company to others. And I am not finished with Ray as I have more jobs to do and trust Ray and his crew to do them correctly.

We have used Ray and his crew several times in out small rowhouse. He is efficient and lets you know what makes sense and what will not work. He is by far the most reasonable contractor I have ever dealt with and he comes in relatively on time and on budget. His crew is friendly and professional. He goes above and beyond to make sure the work is done that way you want it. Hard to find someone you can trust out there to work with your home but we will have Ray back everytime!

Project: Hire a Handyman
The job involved replacement of the garbage disposal and the hose to the dish washer as well as securing the dish washer to the counter top. The job was done well and completed within the timeline as promised. Mandy, the office staff did a good job in scheduling and keeping me informed every step. Ray and his crew are very professional and neat. My husband and I are happy with the outcome.

I hired Ray's to resurface my bathtub and my kitchen sink a year ago. April 2014, I noticed small cracks in the glazed surface of both bathtub and kitchen sink. The cracks became little larger as water eased under the open areas. I called Ray to look at the problem. He came out and said that I had been using strong acidic cleaning products or waste matter on the surfaces. After he glazed in May 2013, I used the bathtub for two months then stopped in July. I had workers come to put in new pipes. Ray blamed my workers and said I was supposed to read the care manual that I never received.

Ray's receptionist, Ms. Brenda Duckett, was extremely helpful with scheduling to my convenience. Ray discovered a problem with the kitchen sink's placement and took time to make the adjustments, at no extra charge.

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.
