0.50 Carmen O. Garden Grove, CA

He told me at the beginning that it would cost 35$ an hour then charged me 50$ dollars an hour to also pay his helper / driver whom only did around 15 mins worth of painting. He kept sending the helper in and out to get tools which I felt this was very disorganized. The tools were falling out of his van onto my driveway. I think he got frustrated when he was working on my door and began banging the door with a hammer so I had to stop him! My door does not close now. He sat down and began bragging about how much money he has in his bank and his 3 cars. Everything was being done very slowly. He did not even complete the projects I had. He did not write anything down, did not write the price, and did not give me a receipt. He did not want me to write my check out with the company name just his personal name Tom Gallagher. He got very upset with me when I told him he should maybe retire from the profession. All he got done was caulking and I do not think caulking was worth the price I paid. The quality of the caulking was fine. I do not want to bump heads with him but I was not happy with this experience.

5.0 Michaele B. Huntington Beach, CA

We found him to be reliable and conscientious. Very pleased with his work.

5.0 Michael S. Fountain Valley, CA

I hired Tom Gallagher to do a couple of small plumbing-related jobs at my residence. He proved to be a very skilled and capable handyman. The work was accomplished quickly and professionally. Tom even helped me with a couple of unrelated issues without charging extra. His bill for his services was very reasonable. Tom is a real "people person" and enjoys chatting with the customer. I would happily hire Mr. Gallagher again and wholeheartedly recommend him to everyone!

4.0 Jeannie T.

It's best to be very specific with him regarding your needs. He's a wonderful worker otherwise. He's very smart and conscientious.

5.0 Kyle S.

He goes above and beyond. He's super helpful and a good guy over all.

5.0 Keith ..

He's a good painter and handyman.

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.
