Review by Sue R. in Bethany Beach, DE
Dave started out doing good work at reasonable prices. He was always unreliable regarding the timing of completion but he would eventually get it done. The last time he came to do work was a disaster. He forgot items, did the work crudely, and charged a fortune for it. He balked at producing receipts which are standard for a time and material job and were downright rude when told the new door he installed was leaking. Not just a little leak but a leak that came through the ceiling below. While eventually, he offered to come to fix it he was so hostile and rude we did not want him in our home. He rarely wore a mask and took no safety precautions despite the pandemic. I would not recommend you use him unless timing and money are not an issue and be prepared to stay on top of him at all times.
Response by David Black Construction: My prices are always reasonable and usually below what others charge. Sue constantly added items to originally requested work and then demanded all of it be done in the same time frame, which I usually did. Last 'list' of jobs was completed by deadline given. I billed for the final job as I had always done. Customer never had a problem with paying me before this. But this time she demanded I produce all receipts. Some were damaged. I reproduced all I could, provided evidence from bank statements showing the others. She didn't care and finally, two weeks later, paid the bill, less the $600 in receipts I couldn't produce. She contacted me at a later date complaining about a door I installed that was leaking. I reminded her of my displeasure of her shorting me on my bill, but that I would fix her door anyway. I STAND BY MY WORK IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCE. Instead of letting me correct the problem with the door she got angry that I brought up the money issue and refused to let me do the work and threatened to, instead, give me a bad review, which she has. And masks? I wore a mask the whole time I was in her house per her request. In short? My biggest mistake was assuming we had an 'understanding' regarding payment, a level of trust between us. I was wrong. My mistake was not putting everything on paper (as I usually do) and both parties agreeing to it before starting work. As my other reviews below show, I care very much about the quality of my work and that my customers are happy with it and me. And that will never change.

Project: Hire a Handyman
David is a hard worker and very reliable. Work was started on time and completed ahead of schedule. Communications to include pictures of the various stages of the project was very helpful. I would hire David again for any project.

Review by in Frankford, DE
David replaced two smaller cabinets with a larger one in the kitchen and did a great job. Initially we told him what we wanted and he made a recommendation that we liked better. We are having David give us an estimate on a painting project. We are happy with his work and would recommend David without hesitation.

Review by in Lewes, DE
David called me several times to see what I needed before I was able to call him back. So glad he did. The day I called him he made arrangements to come out the next day to assess work I needed completed.We made arrangements for him to come the following week with my estimate in hand. He called the 1st of the week due to a cancellation & said he would pick up materials and be at my home by 9am the following morning. He arrived at 9am completed the work within 2 hours. I would recommend this company highly. He was reliable,did an excellent job and his price was reasonable. Thank you Home Advisor once again!

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.
