Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
Update: Less than one year later, the work done on our deck "unsealed" and allowed significant water damage to the surface of the deck. When called upon to explain how the failure occurred so quickly, CertaPro responded they're not general contractors and therefore not accountable for the damage caused by the poor quality work done sealing the deck surface originally. As of today, it has been four months since CertaPro was alerted as to their failure and we have yet to get any support for resolution. Avoid this company at all costs!! If they could get the communication straightened out and had personnel that the homeowner didn't have to personally supervise, they would get a higher rating. As it is, we've elected to wait a year to do more work on our house because of the bad experience we had.
Response by CertaPro Painters (of Berkeley): So sorry for your experience. We always strive to deliver the best product that we possibly can. I completely understand your frustrations. Thank you for the conversation today, I will be working very hard on implementing systems and processes so this does not occur again. We typically do not replace interior doors or install weatherstripping, it was out of our wheelhouse. We should have been up front with you about this, and communicated much better about it. Please let me know if there is anything else that I can do for you. As an update to this - Thank you for meeting with me to come up with a resolution. We did overpromise by replacing doors, and repairing the leak in your deck. I am glad that we were able to work things out.

The CertaPro Painters did a beautiful job of covering up many cracks on the stucco walls which required a second coat of paint. We are impressed.

CertaPro will do the job next winter so we are in the scheduling process now. We are very impressed so far with the professionalism and organization of this company. He came when he said he would and called earlier in the day to confirm the appointment then called again when he was 10 minutes away.

Soumil was eager to make sure everything was done to our specifications. Due to rain the project dragged a bit, but we are happy with the end result.

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.
