How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because As a consumer, I got tired of the traditional no-call / no-show characteristics that are rife in the Contractor Community & saw an opportunity..

We describe our business as Well established

Review by in Evanston, IL
Customer service is great, but everything is subcontracted. My painters seemed to be pretty new at the job. They were very good at it, but I had to remind them of different details. I recommend being home as much as possible while the work is taking place.

Review by in Evanston, IL
The paint job was sloppy. The rust on the side garage door continued to come through. I don't believe they used the proper base coat.They didn't paint the rails on the front porch black like I'd asked them to. They did a poor job of sanding the chipped paint from the iron rails on the porch and from the main garage door. They had to go back & scrape the paint off of areas and repaint it as well as paint the rails black. They were supposed to replace the wood trim around a window on the garage. They said that it wasn't in their work order. However it was in my copy of the work order.
Response by Certa Pro Painters of Evanston: We use several tools to ensure a customer is happy with any given project: 1. we do not accept payment until the customer is satisfied--an unhappy customer does not pay (we are not a pay 1st, ask questions later, painter) 2. Our Office Manager and Scheduler calls our customers to validate their satisfaction -- Patti logged that this customer was left a message and 3. We deploy a 3rd Party vendor who conducts a Net Promoter Score metric on the experience -- customers are contacted 3x via phone and via email:regrettably, we received no feedback from this customer. 4. We warranty our work where failure will be addressed at our expense.

It was expensive, but our place looked beautiful when they were done! The painters were very good, responsive, and extremely polite. Ottis was thorough and offered some great recommendations for us. Would definitely hire them again!

I so appreciate doing business with a professional. Ottis and his crew were punctual, clean and did a phenomenal job! No surprises, just great work and an even greater value for the money! I've asked them back for a quote on an interior job.

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.
