Project: Repair a Brick or Stone Fireplace (Non-Gas)
I wanted a repair estimate for some brick face chipping off near the chimney crown. I wasn't at home, but Anthony from A-1 provided my wife estimates for rebuilding ($9000) or sealing ($1900) the crown and some brick below it and then pressured my wife by saying things like "it will cost more if we have to come back out." Anthony and his colleague were at the house less than two hours and essentially just calked the crown with silicone and applied a little brick sealant. A generous estimate for the materials is less than $100. They coerced my wife into paying $1600 for it. Anthony took advantage of a vulnerable homeowner who didn't know any better just because he could. Their front office was okay with how unethical this was. You will see similarly experiences from others if you read reviews at some other sites. I wish I had.

Experience makes the difference. I ve had others out with little or no results. They easily identified the problem and fixed it immediately.

One pro tried to sell us a scare story but the professionals from A-1 explained what was really going on. They had to do some repairs but nowhere near as expensive as what the other guy tried to push. I trust A-1.

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.
