    5.0 Barbara L. La Quinta, CA

    Rafael was very prompt and professional. On this visit, he did multiple small handyman jobs. I was very pleased with his manner, his work and felt he was very trustworthy. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that he does multiple tasks, including, but not limited to, electrical, plumbing, painting, drywall, and all sorts of additional services. I definitely will be hiring him again for all our home maintenance needs.

    Today I hired to install a new microwave unit. This is a family operated service headed up by Rafael and his dad. They performed a quick and excellent job of removing the old unit, replacing the new unit and disposing the old unit, leaving my kitchen clean and the price was 30 bucks cheaper then the "geek squad" at Best Buy! Great job! Please check out their website to see the amazing variety of services offered including a gallery of photos of their work.

    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.
