Project: Hire a Handyman
John's job before ours ran later then he expected, into the evening. He called to let me know, and he said he would call when he finished it. He did and I told him he could come the next couple of days. He insisted if it wasn't too late for us he would like to still come do our job. He was replacing our broken kitchen faucet. He didn't want us to be without our sink any longer. That is dedication to his customers. He came did a great job in less than an hour. We appreciated his dedication and have already hired him for two more larger jobs to be done in May. Good worker, easy to talk with. So glad we found him!!

John is professional, efficient, friendly, and reliable. Excellent communication and did top quality work. I am looking forward to our next project that he can help us with. He did a deck rebuild for us and we were thoroughly impressed with how quick he was, we highly recommend John and A Better Handyman.

John is a good and clear communicator. He arrived on time, gave us a clear indication of the work to be done, and completed in a timely manner. We look forward to working with him again soon.

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.
