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.

Doug helped me understand various networking issues in my house, installed some new hardware that resolved existing problems. WiFi coverage and speed improved dramatically. Friendly, knowledgeable and courteous, but not pushing. Very common-sense approach to problems. They go great lengths explaining everything they do. They present the customer with various options and let you make a decision. They will deal with Comcast (or whatever provider) on behalf of the customer, when installing new hardware at home (e.g. replacing Comcastà  à ¢à  à  à  à  s router with a new one). Definitely would recommend.

Rick was quick to respond to my initial requests and knew exactly what I was looking for to conceal audio and video cables running to my TV. I sent pictures to describe the layout and highlight some added complexity and Rick provided a reasonable quote. I scheduled time for about two weeks out between the holidays. The day of the appointment, Doug and Joe were very prompt and timely. They quickly assessed my project based on what had been quoted and let me know that it would be a small increase ($20) based on needing a slimmer piece of equipment due to limited space behind my wall. Doug and Joe completed the work in a little over two hours and cleaned up after they were done. The work looks great, and I am excited to have it finally done.

I was impressed with the quality of workmanship, competence and knowhow. But more importantly, I really liked their honesty and professional attitude. I took their brochures to our association and asked them to recommend Buchan to our entire community of 156 homes.

Review by in Arlington Heights, IL
Doug and Joe came out to install an HD TV antenna for me. They found an ideal location that would ensure quality reception but also save me some money. Installation was quick, and the end result was exactly what I was hoping for. Fast forward 2 weeks when a foot of wet heavy snow falls - heavy enough to break big branches off trees. Understandably the antenna loosened under the weight of this snow too. Doug and Joe came out the SAME DAY to tighten it back up - what fantastic service!

Mounted a 65 inch TV on the wall, ran the cables and plug in the wall, supplied the mount and cable. Removed the old TV and mount from a different wall and even patched the wall. Everything was great. Very easy to work with. Sent a request, got the price the same day and set a date. The men arrived on time, did the work quickly, knew exactly what to do , left my home in perfect condition. No stress for me and the men were very nice. Would definitely use again.

Review by in Lombard, IL
We were looking to have a TV mounted in our family room, and I was put in touch with Buchan Consulting via HomeAdvisor.com. I couldn't be more happy with how everything went. I reached out on HomeAdvisor on a Monday afternoon, and had a formal proposal/quote from Buchan within hours. I scheduled the install on Tuesday, and the work was completed Thursday morning. The entire process in less than 72 hours! We love how it turned out! Great response, great customer service, and great work from Buchan. We highly recommend them!

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.
