Review by in Punta Gorda, FL
Project: Install Sod
I went to pay with a credit card and when they charged my card they did not tell me that there was a fee and that my contract didn't include tax. Their contract process was very sloppy not really sure what your overall price was going to be. One that was sent to me via email did't even have the price on it.

We started with tree removal, which when they finally showed up to work, was done quickly and efficiently. However, the team underestimated the amount of sod needed, and we had no choice but to purchase an additional pallet, just like others have mentioned. It took forever and constant phone calls for them to install the sprinklers and sod, seriously they were AWOL for weeks! My husband was patient as they had a large cash deposit from us, and we needed the work to be done. The sod and sprinklers were installed, again when they finally showed up, quickly and efficiently. But, the sprinklers did not work correctly from the beginning, and they were finally fixed two weeks ago, nearly 4 months after we began the project. For what we spent on this project, which was more than we had budgeted, I do not feel the quality, customer service, and value were up to par. I would not recommend A Cut Above the Best to anyone, and Home Advisor should do a better job vetting their professionals.

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.
