Project: Hire a Handyman
We hired Dave to do multiple small projects as well as asked for a bid for a portico. Our intention was to use him for future larger projects. He originally told us the estimate was $300-$400 (which he later denied) we had him remove a cabinet, re purpose some mounding and install an outlet in another cabinet. Also he was to install a faucet. Before he started, my wife asks him to install an electronics outlet in a kitchen drawer. He finished the cabinet work but needed to come back for the rest. He said we owed him. $500. OK, higher than what he told us but I figured he was coming back to install the electronics drawer. he came back within 3 days which was great. He installed the electronic drawer and faucet which took him about 5 hours. I also had him reinstall the outlet over the stove that "he took out" that he re purposed under our counter. After he was done he said we owed him. $250.00 more. I told him that if I had known he was going to charge me that much I wouldn't have used him. He said the electronics drawer was not in the original bid and he charged me for putting the outlet back in the wall. (Which he knew I needed since I was installing a hood over the stove) so be careful with the guy. The work was good but get everything in writing from him. He will gouge you otherwise. I'm sorry this is so long but a couple of other things. He gave us a bid to build a portico over our front door. $6,500 This is for material costing less than $1,000, I think he thought we had a lot of money and based his bidding accordingly. We had other estimates between $2,500-$3,500. And his customer service is cxxx. At one point he told my wife to be quiet when she was talking to me. I understand his hearing isn't good and he was trying to find a wire in the wall, but really? So in a nutshell, showed up late, used one of my tools, told my wife to be quiet, sighed throughout the day and overcharges. Avoid the heartache and do not use him. I honesty don't understand how he had so many good reviews. If we had known we wouldn't have used him. Yes I know I'm writing this while I'm mad but it's all true. He'd rather have the money than the reputation. I specifically told him we weren't happy with him overcharging us. He shook my hand and said sorry.

Review by in Pocono Summit, PA
Project: Hire a Handyman
I hired Dave several years ago to provide maintenance on a rental home and this was the best decision made. Dave has helped with home maintenance, minor to large repairs (a bear tore my window; he picked up and installed the new window). The lovely part of my story is I am a long distance landlady and since 2013, I only communicated with Dave via telephone and he would send me pics of the repairs via telephone. It was in 2017 that we finally met in person when the tenants moved out and he came to the house to do a interior painting job (did a great job!). Dave is professional, personable and gets the job done. He is also fair in the costs and his suggestion to what you need to have done. I will hire Dave again for any home maintenance or repairs.

Dave's prices are a little high, his work is good, communication and reliability are suspect.

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.
