    Rob explained what was needed to achieve my needs. He and his crew came to assess the project and followed through professionally. They did the job quickly and efficiently.

    Rob was recommended by a neighbor whose roof was done earlier so I got to see the project in action before my roof. His crew is excellent. Materials are #1 grade which I insist as well. If you hire him you will have no surprises; just a top notch job.

    Rob and his team did an excellent job refurbishing the wood deck on the back of our home. His team spent the time and energy to make sure all details were taken care of and the finished product really beat my expectations. High quality carpentry work and customer service. Strongly recommend. Thank you!

    Better Home Improvements (Rob O'Keefe and team) was initially contracted to repair a slate roof but soon after I engaged them to repair 2 bathroom plumbing leaks and patch and paint damaged ceilings. All work was completed professionally and in a timely manner. Rob is knowledgable, honest, reliable and a pleasure to work with. He even undertook certain bonus projects free of charge. I will definitely engage Better Home Improvements for future projects.

    We hired Rob Oâ Keefe and his team for a second major project this summer. The project included the following: a) power washing all shingles down to their original colors b) washing all windows and screens c) replacing all missing and damaged shingles d) sealing, painting and staining the whole exterior of the house including trims and 3 garage doors. e) masonry repairs on large flagstone patio and stairs. Focused on correcting its pitch and installing new drains f) repairing decorative and retaining walls that had loose rocks and stones Our experience with Rob has been consistently outstanding. He supported the projects with daily job site visits and communicated regularly with us. He would text daily while we were traveling with progress reports and suggestions. His onsite crew varied from 2 to a dozen depending on the stage of the project. They were all punctual and highly professional. Despite major wind damage during a freak storm that paralyzed our community for almost a week with limited power and road access, Rob and his team were able to resume work promptly and maintain the project essentially on time and on budget. We strongly recommend Rob and his team for similar type projects. Rob is resident of Fairfield County, with an established track record and familiarity with state and county regulations. His local knowledge was a great plus.

    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.
