5.0 Susan L.

He is on time, he does what he says he is going to do.

2.5 Sharon C. Santa Barbara, CA

This is my response (in caps) to the response by Calisto Plourde Construction: I gave Mrs. Sherry C a bid for $450 to fit custom door that I told her would not work properly because it was not the correct thickness for her opening and she said just make it work. THE NEW DOOR IS THICKER THAN THE OLD DOOR BUT THE THICKNESS OF THE DOOR IS NOT A PROBLEM. The job actually took 5.5 hours from start to finish. HE CAME AT 10:30 AND LEFT BEFORE 12:30. I also installed and cut holes in door for door handle and dead bolt and then installed door handle and dead bolt. HE DID AN EXCELLENT JOB OF CUTTING HOLE AND INSTALLONG DOOR HANDLE BUT THE DOOR HAS NO DEAD BOLT AS HE STATED. This work was added on after estimate so I just did it with out my normal charge to install custom door hardware. AT HIS REQUEST I SENT PHOTO OF DOOR AND TOLD HIM I ALREADY BOUGHT THE DOOR HANDLE, NOT ADDED WORK. WOULD I HIRE SOMEONE TO HANG AN OUTSIDE DOOR THAT HAD NO DOOR KNOB AND DIDN'T LOCK? SERIOUSLY? She also commented she could not get anyone to install this custom door for her due to the door unique qualities. I DIDN'T FIND ANOTHER DOOR HANGER, ONLY 2 HANDYMEN WHO PREFERRED NOT TO DO A JOB FOR WHICH THEY WERE NOT QUALIFIED. when I left she was happy with door. IT IS TRUE I DIDN'T INITIALLY SEE THE PROBLEM WITH THE DOOR, I ONLY COMPLAINED THAT I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO PAY $450 FOR A JOB THAT TOOK LESS THAN 2 HOURS. I PAID THE $450 BECAUSE I AGREED WITH HIS CAPPING THE JOB AT THAT COST. I ALSO SAID I WOULD STATE HIS OVERCHARGE OF THE JOB IN HIS REVIEW AND HE SAID THAT'S OK. I did a good job and worked very hard for her. THE DOOR WAS PINCHING THE JAM CAUSING THE SCREWS OF THE BOTTOM HINGE TO PULL AWAY FROM THE JAM WHEN CLOSING THE DOOR. I NOTICED THIS SOON AFTER HE LEFT. NOT GOOD To get this review is uncalled for. Never have I ever gotten a review of this sort. Thank You Calisto Plourde PLEASE READ ALL OF MY OTHER REVIEWS! Sherry

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.
