They were the first to call and available the next day. The owner, Jim, is incomparable. Great service with all work fully explained. A keeper!

Review by in Williamsburg, VA
Technicians never greeted home owner. They make a mess in your yard with their "pocking"tools an never repair. On the first visit, the "technician" made a mess with out completing the work and leaving holes every where.I got a bill for 135.00 plus a second one for 90.00 (why?) .Two days later after I complained to the company, a second tech came in and started complaining of what the first one had done.He was saying how this guy could have done this and that he should be fired...He then left my house leaving his work unfinished for 2 days again! until I had to call the company (owner?) who appeared not to understand what was hapening.On the third day,the guy who "was a mess initially" showed up again! and appeared to ignore what he had done wrong.He billed 4 hrs of work=$360.00 Never an apology for the mess. Be the judge.

Installed water meter fine. Backflow testing passed but there was something wrong with my backflow leaking water every few minutes which service technician said was normal. Afterwards called plumber and irrigation company which, both came out and said backflow was broken and it shouldn't have passed testing. Needless to say I was paying for the water that was leaking every few minutes.

I haven't received a bill yet so I can't really rate on that, but the technician was on time, knowledgeable, and didn't take a long time to fix what I asked to be repaired. Found another problem but will return to fix asap. Will definitely use them from now on for all sprinkler system needs.

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.
