Review by in Gwynn Oak, MD
Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
I hired A-1 contracting to paint my living room, hallway ,stair well and master bedroom. The contract specified 2 coats of gray paint on walls, white semi gloss on all trim and doors and 2 coats on all the ceiling. Walls in stair well ,only 1 coat, I can see the old paint in spots and ruff finish, some of walls , ceilings and trim I had to re due ,there where streaks and dust particles in the paint. Walls needed to sanded in spots that Charles didn't complete, I had to re due. Never on time and said he was going to have a helper, which he didn't have. The job took long then spec.out on the contract. I was post surgery and no able to move furniture but , since he had no help I had to move the lighter furniture ,which didn't help me to heal from the surgery.
Response by A-1 Painting & Contracting: A-1 is always willing to come and fix any problems that any customer is have at anytime period........although we don?t agree with this interpretation everyone has there opportunity to discuss and point out any particular in real time or after the job because we are willing to correct....otherwise we wish everyone the Best & Good luck in the New Year 35years Always a Class Act... Thank you

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
Mr. Charles Elliott the owner of the company, personally did the work we needed done in our house. He is very thorough, laid down drop cloths everywhere, neatly set up, cleaned up and even helped us identify the paint we needed for the job. He was willing to work with our schedules and price point. I highly recommend him!!

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.
