They promised one thing and delivered something else.

Stucco Issue Repairs $35,000 Do NOT use this contractor. I had hired Mr. Swadlow to repair stucco issues on my home prior to putting it up on the market. At that time he was using the company name MBT Contractor Services. My realtor and I met with Mr. Swadlows sub contractor, Rich Wilson and went over the stucco inspection report from which they were to work off of. We were assured everything would be done and done properly. I paid Mr. Swadlow $35,000 to have this work done. Once my house was sold the buyers asked to have the stucco re-inspected. I had no problem with that as I had just had the work done. The same inspector that did the inspection prior to the work being done was the one that came out to re-inspect. He could not believe what he saw and more importantly what he did not see. The back of my house was NEVER worked on it was only painted and the repairs they did do were done so poorly that the stucco readings came back worse. I wound up having to pay another contractor $44,000 to redo the work that was done and to do the work that I had paid Mr Swadlow for that was never done. I reached out to Mr. Swadlow on many occasions with all the proof. I even sent him pictures after the new contractor started showing him the rot wood that was never repaired by his company. He told me to go ahead and sue him. The problem with that is that he already has 11 liens and judgements against him. I tried appealing to his better judgement to make restitution to me, but he turned a blind eye. He also had shut down the company MBT that I had contracted with and was now going under the name ES contractor Services. He tends to shut down companies and reopen under another name. He even has a picture of my house posted on here which I never authorized and more importantly he is advertising work he never did. He is a fraud and a crook. STAY AWAY!

The quality of the work was excellent, stucco repair and painting of the entire home. The entire crew was pleasant, they listened to me and explained what and why they were doing what they did. They started on time and finished on time. I was always able to reach someone at the company. Special thanks to Rich, Chris, and Jessica. I recommend this company based on their service and quality of work.

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)
