Martin Dowden has just purchased the bricks needed to repair my chimney so it is too early to comment.

Project: Install Concrete Driveways & Floors
I had Martin Dowden do repairs to pavered driveway and leveling out of my flagstone patio. I appreciated how he went out of his way to locate matching pavers for the driveway repair and his reasonable prices.

Review by in Wauwatosa, WI
Marty was prompt to come out for the initial quote which we greatly appreciated. He was very honest about the time of year and how the cool and wet weather could impact his progress so we weren't surprised at all when it took a while to get him out here to complete the job- it is Wisconsin after all! What did take us by surprise was the quality of the work. After being told that the job was done, we came home to find tons of holes and step cracks that had not been touched. Even after Marty came back out to finish up the job himself, there was mortar everywhere! Marty insisted that we had textured bricks that made it harder to work with. We get that, but when we explained that were highly disappointed with how sloppy things looked, he told me that we the home owners could just get up there with a wire brush to clean things off. Isn't that what we hired a professional for? Dowden Construction should have cleaned things up as they worked because now we can't seem to get the excess mortar off. They didn't even offer to try to remedy this after voicing our disappointment. Not to mention, when we got up on ladder to try to clean up the mess ourselves, there was leftover mortar on top of many high surfaces and pillars just left in piles. Just because it this mess couldn't be seen from the ground, doesn't mean that leaving mortar everywhere is okay. Moreover, the mortar doesn't even get close to matching our current color. We get that it will fade somewhat with time but it is truly an eyesore. We're highly disappointed and we are frankly embarrassed by the appearance of the front of our home after having this job done.

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.
