Project: Inspect a Home
Chris is incredibly thorough, professional, proactive, and well-informed. We learned so much during the inspection, not only about what was good/bad, but how to maintain and repair things we'd never even thought about. Chris was a joy to work with!

My experience with 1st Choice Inspection service was excellent. He arrived on time ready to work. He was very knowledgeable about all the areas I had questions about, and answered them with clear and easy to understand answers.

Project: Inspect a Home
Chris is absolutely fantastic at his job. He shared what he knew about everything he inspected, he patiently explained when my daughter or I had questions about what he was looking at or testing and he went above and beyond helping us with our first house. I can't recommend highly enough and I, personally, will only turn to him for all of my home inspections.

Review by in Chaptico, MD
When we accessed HomeAdvisor's web site Tuesday Feb 13, 2018 to search for a roofing inspector, Ist Choice was available to take appointments. We scheduled the appointment for the following Monday, Feb 19, 2018.. Chris called us right away and through our conversation we explained to him that our insurer wanted an inspection performed and wanted the results for that Friday, Feb 16, 2018. Chris accommodated us by re-scheduling to meet us on that Wednesday, February 14, 2018 giving us the needed time to respond back to our insurer. Chris Hayes, the owner of 1st Choice Inspection Services inspected the roof of our recent purchase.. Chris is very knowledgeable in his field. He goes beyond what I'm sure is required of his services to make sure every detail is covered and that his customers are satisfied. We were very pleased with his work and his personal attention to our needs.

Project: Inspect a Home
Chris provided outstanding customer service; he was professional, knowledgeable, responsive, punctual, flexible, thorough, and detailed oriented. He inspected two homes that we were looking to purchase and provided a detailed and honest inspection report that provided information that was needed to move forward with our home buying process. I highly recommend using his services.

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.
