Review by in Des Moines, IA
the guy of the phone. Derick I think was his name was rude! (I would give Derick a ZERO on customer service. but the guys that came out to my house to do the work were really nice! (I would give both of them a 5). this is why I only gave them a 2.5 on service. the guy on the phone was rude! and if you hear their advertisements they say the "golden rule" is to treat the customers NICE! yes they treat you nice in person. but NOT on the phone.... rather LAME if you ask me. I gave them a 3.5 on value for the money. I thought they were rather expensive for what I got done.

I am happy with the work that Golden Rule did. They also kept me informed when they would arrive at my house. I would hire them again.

The person they sent was courteous, friendly and professional. All work completed in a timely manner. I am a bit uncertain on the value for money as it has been a while since I've needed any plumbing work done. All in all well done.

We are exceptionally pleased with the plumbing repair work provided by Golden Rule. Henry arrived on schedule, reviewed the work required for the project, and made the repair. He was efficient, friendly and professional. We look forward to calling Golden Rule with confidence for our next project.

Top rate service and workmanship. Seemed a bit pricey but I'm not sure what the average cost for time and materials should be. Would use 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.
