Mark and Jim were great to work with. After I signed off on the contract they were able to quickly come out and do the needed repairs. Very detailed about their recommendations and in their work on the job. The 2 workers that accompanied Mark on the job were also detailed and conscientious. Highly recommend American Beam & Steel.

Mark was great. Very knowledgeable and an expert at his field and older houses. He did an amazing job framing and fixing an issue we had with some joists and subfloor and they finished in a day when others quoted 3 days.

Review by in La Grange Park, IL
Project: Repair Carpentry Framing
Their price was a little steep and was the highest bid but I trusted them and they were very professional. They were very good in knowing what they were doing and have an engineering background. They showed up on time and left everything clean when they finished. They did a very good job and I am very happy.

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.
