Project: Inspect a Home
Mr. Chou showed up early and got to work before I even showed up. Very knowledgeable plus he's an expert in other fields that are beneficial to getting a good home inspection. Very nice and professional individual. I'm happy with the service he provided.

Response by A-1 Inspection, Inc.: Please tell everyone do not use entouch.net as your server if you have a choice. Email could be delayed for hours without their advanced notice. It happened many times. I have to take screen shot to show this customer Marc S. that I did sent it - 3 times. He replied next morning that he FINALLY got it. It happened again last night to my customer Michael S. I sent a report at 8:57 and customer replied a text message at 11:17 saying it still did not arrive. Both sides are really "losing sleep" for this unprofessional server. Can you imagine our customer's frustration, distrust and anguish? Entouch.net can't obviously.

Project: Inspect a Home
Very thorough during home inspection. Mr. Chou is a civil engineer and master inspector. He was quick to respond to my initial inquiry. Was on time to the inspection. Answered all my questions before and during the inspection. He offered competitive pricing and is certified for various services which I was being referred to a third party with other inspection companies. He offered helpful advice and knowledge as we walked through the inspection. He sent his inspection report the same evening we had the inspection. Would absolutely recommend his services.

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.
