    The sales person made all sorts of promises regarding the carpentry work that could be done on the house and power washing that would be done to properly prep the surfaces and they left me with half of my house unpreped and said they could not do the carpentry one hour before they left. The side of the house that they neglected to powerwash barely looks like it was touched. It was also lightly sanded and scraped, less so the higher up you went. They also left without cleaning and I have materials on my roof and in my yard. I can go on with more but I will just end it by saying they were also 6 weeks late.

    CertaPro is an outstanding company that I would recommend. I had the same exterior of our house painted they were timely, organized, professional, and respectful. I interpret have the return to do interior painting!!

    Stay clear of CertaPro and Marc Prive. My experience was horrible. I hired them to paint my house exterior. First, Marc Prive, the owner, outsources everything to other painters. Only 2 people showed up to paint my house. The contract said they would do 2 coats of paint. They only did 1. Within 6 months, my house was peeling and cracked. It took many emails and calls to get Marc to send a person to fix. He eventually sent a guy to fix. The fixes lasted a few months before the same cracking and peeling. I had to call him again, many times for him to send someone again. He eventually sent another person (outsourced, not employed by CertaPro). This person did a worse job and the patches he fixed cracked almost instantly. A third person was sent and they fixed many of the peeling areas. BUT, Marc declined to fix the areas that cracked. He refused to take responsibility. Marc Prive will talk to you nicely if you can get a hold of him. But the quality of the work is absolutely horrible.

    We have used CertaPro twice for projects. The local franchise was sold, so we dealt with two different owners. On both occasions the work was great, but feel the current owner is more responsive. I will hire him for future projects.

    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.
