Review by in Wilton, CT
Isaac came out to give me an estimate in the second week April. A contract with email to me on April 16. The cost of the stump grinding was going to be $275. I made a payment on April 25 of $95. A few days after I tried calling no less than six times trying to find out when they were coming. I was told by one person they're having a "schedule meeting" that afternoon and someone would call me back. No one ever called back. On May 12 they showed up to grind the stump's. I wasn't home. The next day I went out to find that they left a 24 inch root sticking out of the ground. I emailed Isaac telling him that I wasn't happy. He came out, cut some remaining debris. We had a pleasant conversation. I get the bill in the mail for $295. The estimate I was given was for $275. At this point I am done. I will never recommend them to anybody. Anne T Follow up to incorrect billing, Issac is giving me a $50.00 credit for the inconvenience and delay in getting my job done. Very thankful.

Isaac was wonderful. He listened to me and didn't push me to spend more money. He made good suggestions and was very professional.

I am happy with the work performed and would have given Almstead 5 stars, except they didn't show on the appointed day and failed to call me.

Responded to quote quickly. Took about 2 1/2 weeks from the time he got the signed quote from me until the work was actually done. Work done was exactly what I wanted. I would use Almstead again.

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.
