Out of multiple vendors, i chose Golden Rule, because they could show up the fastest. Lucy the representative I talked to was extremely nice and courteous. My problem was I had a slow drain, which i believed was in J-trap under my sink, and told the tech that when she arrived, and said i wanted to replace the brass tubing with PVC. the pipe leading out from my wall was corroded, so she she would have to cut into my dry wall to see how far back it went. $215.00 just to cut a 10 X 6 hole in my wall, and they don't do dry wall repair, fair enough, you're a plumber, i understand that. long story short she cut that pipe off at the joint, in the process put a hole in the adjoining wall with her saw. once she had the pipe off, you could literally see what was causing my slow drain, staring at me smack dab in the face. i ask if she could remove the sludge before putting on the PVC tubing. she said I could, but it will cost 175 dollars. i just no worries, I'll take care of it myself later on. she assembles the new trap in her van, comes back in, puts it on. long story short again, after $520.00 spent, i have to have my dry wall repaired, i have to get a new sink trap, because the one she assembled hangs to low to fit back into the base of the pedestal sink, and I still have a slow drain.

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.
