Richard does quality work. He added some additional repairs that were needed for a reasonable cost. He keeps the customer informed through out the project and is a professional.

Richard did a good job repairing a number of things around my house. he also kept me updated on when he could arrive and what was needed for the repairs. I needed the work done fairly soon and he was able to accommodate that. Thanks.

Richard did the power washing and sealing of the pavers. He also did the epoxy on the garage floor. His work was neat and to my total satisfaction. I would recommend him highly.

Project: Powerwash Exterior Surfaces
3.0   |  
Review by in Huntington, NY
The project consisted of powerwashing the house, repairing rotted wood and siding that had bowed and staining house. The finished project looks great, except for the paint trim around the metal window molding. Richard said he did this because the previous painter had gotten spots on the window and he said this would ultimately look better. The problem I had is the project cost too much money and it took too long. Start to finish was 2 weeks. Towards the end he worked longer days but initially the days were short which impacted the total length of the project and ultimately the cost.
Response by Finest Home Improvement: This project was and exterior paint job of an entire house. There was extensive repair, replacement and re-nailing of Cedar Clapboard, as well as chimney carpentry and restoration. This work was done in the Fall of the year and we ran out of day light at 5:00 pm. We brought in electric lighting to work until 7:30pm so we could paint window trim and perform clean-up work. For the extensive restoration of this home, 2 weeks was not an unrealistic time-line. Customers are sometimes surprised by renovation costs and un-expected work that is necessary but un-for-seen. Work performed was a set contract, and no additional charge was ever asked for.

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.
