Review by in Plainfield, IL
I am so pleased with the workmanship and honesty of the owner, Brian Janssen. Brian was referred to me through a friend of mine back in the summer. Since that time I have hired Brian for several projects including remodeling my basement, my master bathroom and painting my kitchen cabinets. My house looks beautiful. I can't wait for the family to come over for Thanksgiving. A few things that really impressed me about Brian is his honesty and integrity. I can tell he really cares not only about his business but also about the quality of work he produces. His quote was slightly higher than others, but I am so pleased with the results I even gave him an additional tip. I had originally picked out paint that I wanted to use in the basement. Brian suggested I use a different (higher quality paint). I still insisted on using the paint I wanted because it was cheaper. He made me a deal and painted one wall with the paint I picked out. If I liked the results he would paint the remaining basement with that same paint. After looking at the wall I was not satisfied and decided to go with his recommendation. Oh boy, am I happy I did. It looks so good. Cheap paint is exactly that. Cheap and not good quality. You certainly get what you pay for. Thank you Brian for making my house look so amazing. You are my "Go-To" person from now on.

I was not satisfied with the quality of the workmanship including fine splintering of the wood after the power wash and stain, in addition to other concerns. The owner who did the work's conduct was inappropriate and rude, condescending and insulting, by my standard of expectation as well as in comparison to other professionals I have hired. I would never again hire this company to do any work for me, and would not recommend the company to anyone else.

Brian came out quickly after I called him and fixed my roof. He is very reasonable in his pricing. I will definitely call him again for any repairs I need.

Project: Repair Drywall
Brian, did an excellent job! I submitted the request on Home Advisor's web site and about a half hour later I got a call. Brian came over that day accessed what was needed, provided a written quote via email. And complete the work the next day. I would recommend him to anyone, and will use him and his company for any future jobs.

Project: Hire a Handyman
Brian at Avalon was very easy to work with. His knowledge and skill is only surpassed by his pleasantness. We had many 'small' jobs that required time and expertise. He was great and honest, identifying the things he could not fix. He then even went the extra mile and found us someone who could fix them. Too often we find service folks that are not good to their word. Brian was always on-time, prompt with communication and honest. He is our handy-man of choice.

Project: Hire a Handyman
I would highly recommend Avalon Home Improvements to anyone and will be using him in the future. The owner Brian was extremely professional and very honest. I am looking to sell my property and get it ready for the market. I had some ideas of things that I wanted to do to improve the property for sale that I wanted to fix, but I didn������t want to invest a lot of money into a property where I was no longer going to be living. Brian spent a long time walking through my house with me and helped me decide where I should spend the money I had budgeted. I was thinking of doing certain things and he made very valid points that some of those things would not increase the value of my home and I would not get a return for my money. He made suggestions and wasn������t just there to sell me, which was totally opposite of the other two companies I had in previously. Brian is really passionate and seems to love what he does for a living. After he was done with work I had wished I hired him long before. My house looks great and when my realtor came back to get it listed she even commented on how nice things looked. Thank you Brian for all your hard work!

Project: Install Drywall
I incurred water damage on two floors which required replacing drywall, ceiling tiles, fixtures and the toilet. Brian also completed all the painting. Brian was very professional and provided suggestions on economic solutions/alternatives. He was prompt and kept me fully apprised of status and next steps. I am very happy with the results and have already referred him to a friend.

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.
