Review by in Renton, WA
This small repair turned into a structural problem which was larger than expected. As a result, Ben was on the job 1/2 a day and David was back for a full day. Communication between them left a little bit to be desired, but David was able to do a good job.

Top rate. Efficient, friendly, came to my house in a timely manner. Took care of roof repair promptly. Estimate was fair. Job looked great. Cleaned up afterwards. Repairman was professional. Next year I will ask them to replace my roof. I highly recommend them.

Review by Starr S. in Lake Stevens, WA
I would not recommend 1st Choice. I called them to look at my garage roof which was leaking. Nick sent a young man whose English was non-existent. It was very difficult to communicate with him. He spent an hour evaluating my garage roof, as well as the roof on the rest of my house. There was some minor existing damage to one gutter, and Nick convinced me that 6 roof vents needed to be re-nailed. It took him 30 minutes ( 5 min. per vent) to re-nail the vents, and 30 minutes to repair the gutter. He was at my house for 2 hours, maximum. I then talked to Nick on the phone to find out what I owed for the 2 hours. Nick quoted me a price of $1008. This was for 2 hours of evaluation and minor repairs. Needless to say, I was not happy, and Nick and I had a very heated discussion. We finally settled at $750. Nick said he would send me an invoice for the work done, as well as an estimate to replace my roof. I never received either one. There is no way that 1st Choice can justify charging over $1000 for two hours of work. The $750 I settled for was still a major rip-off. If you are in need of a new roof, I would call any other company but 1st Choice.

Nick was very personable and he explained things very clearly on what's going on. They charge accordingly and very reasonable. We will definitely use them again and recommend them.

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.
