Project: Remodel a Bathroom
Shawn was very knowledgeable and very professional. The bathroom remodel was the master bathroom that was small so only one person could work on it but it was done within a week. He was able to keep everything neat and contained and the finished product looks great! The cost was also very reasonable and at the low end of what we had expected to pay.

Review by in Nassau, NY
Shawn Grider and his team, especially Lenny, did a great job replacing a retaining wall and deck. They worked neatly, showed up on time, and completed the job ahead of schedule. For the first time in many years, a contractor we would call back again! Thank you. It looks great!

Review by in Valatie, NY
Project: Remodel a Bathroom
Shawn did a fantastic job in my bathroom! He really gave it a wow effect. What a difference. He really had his work cut out for him as I really wanted a bathtub in a shower space. He worked it out I now have my bathtub. I would recommend him to everyone and I will definitely hire him for my next project.

Review by in Hudson, NY
Project: Build or Replace a Deck or Non-Masonry Porch
He showed up on time with references, photos of prior jobs and proof of proper insurances. Very knowledgeable and nice to speak with. Did little extras like sand the top rail, round off the end pieces and replace lumber pieces used during the job but he determined later to be inferior at no extra cost.

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.
