Review by Barbara R. in Chicago, IL
Not only would I never recommend Lucky Gorman, I will never use Home Advisor again. The 1/2 star I give Lyxky is only because I was not given the option to give him a negative rating. He tried changing prices on us 3 times, even at one point stating that sometimes hes got to eat his mistakes but continued increasing price. If you use him, DON'T, be sure everything you expect is in the agreement and spelled out. Heather and Mick kept the project going and completed everything we wanted. Lucky was the problem.

Lucky Gorman hung up the phone in the middle of the conversation before I could tell him I didn't authorize the repair. Then sent me an invoice. I tried to explain that I didn't want to move forward and that I was willing to 'meet him in the middle' and paid 50% of the invoice. Lucky threatened to send me to collections and damage my credit score. Four days after the repair, he furnished a new invoice and said I now owe him more money. In the end, I mailed him a check for the balance due, just to be done with this horrible experience.

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.
