How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because Technology is fun! It's that simple. I love being able to work with customers to accomplish their goals, excite them about technology, and simplify lives. It's not just about each individual piece of technology, it's about how we tie lighting, shading, climate, audio, video, and security together to create a cohesive, fun, and enjoyable environment that is rooted in a strong technology backbone. .

We started in this industry in 2004.

We describe our business as Up and coming

They make sure they have a complete understanding of your vision prior to starting any work. Then the crew will be sure to get your input on any decisions prior to going ahead with the install. Professional, courteous, patient, and quick. A great experience.

I was looking to modernize my home lighting, video and sound system. Buchan was the second vendor that I interviewed. The professionalism and the pricing I received from Doug Buchan led me to contract with his company the day we met. I contracted with Buchan to install Eero, Sonos and Lutron systems in my house and my backyard. Doug worked along with his install tech, Rashaun, to ensure a smooth process. Rashaun was fantastic in explaining all the features of the new service and showed great patience in making sure I was well versed in maximizing all the features. I highly recommend Buchan Consulting

The Buchanan team including its owner 1) Changed the pricing of my quote several times 2) Tried to sell me additional equipment I did not want or need
Response by Buchan Consulting, LLC: Oscar, You changed the scope multiple times and additional equipment was needed to complete your install as you changed your scope. That of course increases hardware and labor costs which you fought with us about in numerous rude and factually inaccurate emails. Additionally, after having read about some network equipment on the internet you insisted you knew more than us although you have not ever set that gear up before and we have. We could tell from your emails and interactions with us that you were looking to have your price lowered to an unrealistic amount and we politely declined to work with you. I'm sorry that you feel we have 1/5 stars worth of quality (although you never worked with us), 1/5 stars for customer service (although we responded to 10+ emails, sent a design consultant out for a free estimate, and did everything we could to help win your job), and 1/5 value for the money when we are priced 25% below the national average for our industry on our labor rates. I wish we had been able to come to an agreement to work together but alas, we must settle for your 1 star review instead.

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.
