Review by in Elgin, IL
Project: Hire a Handyman
Steve Miller did a good job of tiling, fixing my bathroom, patching a few holes in the ceiling and chaulking the doors & windows.. Reason for 4 stars and not 5 stars is he would take care of his other businesses on your time. For instance, he wanted to attend some meeting on day 2 over at my house and he showed up only after 4PM . Day 3 of the job, he wanted to go to give a quote to someone, he left on a pretext of getting something and came back only around 2 hours later. So, if you the above scenarios are valid, you have a 5 start handyman at your service. I would say this though, his work is very good and clean.

Project: Hire a Handyman
Steve called back right away when I first contacted him. His work was clean, quick and well priced. We had a multiple task job and he was able to break it down for us and let us know what would be required. I believe we will be using him again for any of our home handyman needs.

Project: Paint or Stain Interior Surfaces
He has done the renovation on the first floor of our building. He does very good work and painted the entire floor. He also did repairs and moving switches. He is very responsive and clear in his work.

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.
