Project: Hire a Handyman
I hired these gentleman to install an over-the-range microwave to replace an existing 1. After 15yrs things changed and mods (small but necessary) were needed. Had a stove that needed to be hooked up as well. They priced out GREAT and did GREAT work (clean up and all). They'll be back soon. Highly recommended!

Project: One Time Interior House Cleaning
When I was contacted by the owner of the company I asked if he could call me back because I was unable to talk, when I did not hear back from him I call him and we then discussed the job and the cost after I expressed to him that I already had one estimate that was to high, he gave me a good price and we set up an appointment. On the day of my appointment they had some kind of an emergency and said they could not be at my house until 12:30 pm bit when they got there there would be three people to do the job. To my dismay they left one man to do the job of 3 and he was at my house past dinner time and the job that he did was good considering he was only one person. However the job was not done correctly, my kitchen cabinets were not cleaned, the floor was not washed, he did not do the floor under the dinning room table. This was not a job for one person so corners were cut and the job was done poorly.

He scratched my wood cabinet because he had the dishwasher to close before he installed it. Plus he scratched the top of the panel when he installed it. It took him an hour and a half than charged $ 300.00
Response by Skip's Handyman Service: i didn t do this job. they must have hired someone else. i did no install job in media. i have only done house cleaning.

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.
