Had to wait for a break in the weather but when they came the tech worked outside in the heat to dig and repair the broken line.

I was initially impressed by Benjamin Franklin, from the time they took my appointment to the constant contact from the repairman before he showed up at my home. However, $300 to replace the kit inside the toilet tank felt like a complete ripoff. I had a handy man install TWO kits last summer in my bathrooms and that cost me just $150. $300 for ONE kit felt excessive. If it weren't for the fact that I was having company, I would have cancelled the service. The other issue I have is that I was asked to join a "club" to get discounts. Pardon me, but that was the last thing I wanted after shelling out $300 for ONE toilet kit. I can honestly say that I will never call these folks again. I'll stick with a local handyman who doesn't charge excessive fees to cover national overhead.

There was a leak under the kitchen sink. The repair ended up costing much more than expected. I was not home to inspect the reported problems, so I had to accept the explanation via phone. The landlord said that the kitchen faucet was brand new just 6-months ago, so it should not have needed replaced. I feel bad about the cost to repair a leak, especially because I am not certain that the work performed was necessary. It may have been, but I will never know. The cost of the replacement faucets offered started high and went to very high. The customer service person on the phone that made the appointment was helpful and called the home owner to verify that I could schedule a repair. The tech was scheduled for the next morning which was good.

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.
