Review by in Whitestone, NY
I had Daniel come in to replace some locks in my home because it recently underwent construction and multiple contractors had access to my keys through a lockbox. I had new doors installed during construction so I was looking to replace the cylinders and keep the existing handles I had recently installed. He was onsite and checked things out, then left to get what he needed. He returned to change out my existing locks. He started changing my handles to ones I wasn t expecting saying these were all he could get. He did work to try to retrofit my existing handles and was mostly successful. The locks, cost more than when I originally purchased the doors but I needed it completed, so I proceeded. He left, with my brand new front door splintered, he said he had glue to repair, just didn t get back to it. Then left my entryway and new wood floors with a mound of sawdust and hand prints all over my white side door. I asked if he was going to clean up the mess he just made in my home and he said he didn t have his vehicle, it was in the shop. He had borrowed his tech s vehicle and there was nothing in it to clean up. If I was living there already, I would have had stuff to clean it up but don t, so it meant a trip back for me. Personally, as a business owner, I would have bought a small shop vacuum or dust pan and broom locally, like the locks he just did, and cleaned the jobsite I was just on and left it in my employees vehicle, so he would represent my company professionally. I wouldn t do something in anyone s home that I wouldn t want done in mine. But that s just me. When Daniel left, the job he came to do was accomplished. He installed 1 brand new lock, replaced an existing lock keyed to match the one he installed on my front door. He then replaced 2 existing locks with matching keys on my side door. He was nice, close to being on time, phoned to say he was running late. Just wished he treated my home as his own and cleaned up after himself when he finished. At least attempt to clean up the sawdust with cardboard, maybe?

The locksmith arrived at the time he had stated, and explained about the differences of the locks. The job was well done. Yes I would recommend this locksmith.

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.
