HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post information about themselves and their business on their profile. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information or representations set forth in those profiles, as they are self-reported by the Service Professional.

HomeAdvisor verifies state-level licensing where applicable - note: some states require local or county level licensing and you should verify whether or not your pro is properly licensed.

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because the gig economy is a bit of my Frankenstein's monster and Fixer is an answer to that--it's a very intentional, W-2 employee, career-oriented model.

We started in this industry in 2017.

We describe our business as Rooted in the community

Why Did You Guys Start a Handyman Service?

We were having trouble finding highly skilled, reliable experts and tired of playing phone tag.

Review by in Chicago, IL
I was under the impression suggestions provided were for licensed plumbers. A tech from Fixer came in, and attempted to unclog my drain but was not able to. It was then that I was told a licensed plumber is recommended. The tech arrived outside the given window and spent 15 minutes inspecting and attempting to unclog it, yet I was charged the 1hr rate for the visit left with my clogged sink. He did clean up and referrals were provided. Customer service also good about responding to inquiries.

They tried very hard to fix our fan, but weren’t able to. It needs to be replaced.

Ricordo & Dave came over to evaluate and service our bathroom fan. They were very knowledgeable, efficient, and gave me the assurance I needed to know it was working properly. I would definitely go to Fixer again for future needs!

Was able to come fairly quickly but it felt like he did take his time and when we went to get materials he stopped at office to do other stuff. I asked him about it and he did take time off.

Technician, Jeff, was great! He arrived on time and completed the work in a reasonable timeframe. He kept his face mask on the entire visit and thoroughly cleaned up after. Very satisfied and will be using again!

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.
