Not sure what I was expecting when procuring the services of a 'lighting architect.' He was responsive (in spite of some family health issues) and had some great ideas. His billing rate is probably fair. In retrospect I would have liked to sit down with him, with the catelogs, discuss alternatives and make the decision.....rather than select some of the fixtures from recommended websites. However, he was there when the final decisions were made, and we are happy with the outcome.

He prepared nice elevation drawings so we can see what the final project will look like. He took our comments and concerns into consideration in the drawings, plus added some extra ideas we had not considered previously.

I have just hired Garth Sheriff for my architech, he has impressed me with his knowledge, professionlism, his interaction with me, his previous clients, his passion and his intuitiveness. Hopefully I will have a positive experience with him.
Response by Garth Sheriff Architect: Since this initial rating, the client and we have had a pleasure collaborating on his home!. I firmly believe this will be updated by the customer to a 5 star rating :)

We have just begun working with him but he was by far the most professional and attentive of the people we interviewed. He seemed to try to gear the design to our special needs and gave freely of his time before we signed with him. He seems to be fairly priced. So far so good but we have not finished the design or begun building yet. The jury is out until after the project is finished.

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.
