5.0 Craig F. Fremont, CA

Friendly, easy to work with, will use again :)

4.0 Hallie A. San Francisco, CA

Prompt to respond and schedule the job. Hard to pin down an arrival time but good work when he did arrive. He put new post caps on our fence. He did a good job, using a level to make sure they were on straight, all but one. It’s very crooked and will need to be redone. Pleasant and helpful. Would hire again.

4.5 Albert T. Union City, CA

I hired them to replace a few 2x6 beam on the outside of the roof. They completed the job . But I noticed a corner was not patched up properly or no caulking. I called him. They came back to cault and cover it perfectly, the next day. So I gave him 4.5. It could have Been a 5. If it was done right first time.

4.0 Andye D. Pleasanton, CA

He was quick, responsive and did good work.

5.0 James W. Fremont, CA

Showed up onetime. Met my level of desired expectations with are very high as if younger and now with some health issues, could have done the job myself. Did it for a fair price. Properly cleaned up after the work was finished. Did no damage while doing the work. Put items back where he found them if they were moved. Friendly and supportive. Could not have asked for more. He is the first contractor I have hired in many years that I would strongly consider rehiring in the future. Work done was replacing the screen fabric in all my 16 window screens. He also used the high quality material I requested at no extra charge.

5.0 James W. Fremont, CA

Replacing window screen fabric. Was very pleased with work done correctly with proper respect with landscaping and cleaned up properly after job was completed. Also offered a fair price for the work done and quality of work. Will strongly consider him again for future projects that a likely more complex.

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.
