Review by in Carmel, CA
Based on a referral from Home advisor, we hired Michael Friday and his team to do a full painting and exterior prep/repair on our home. We were delighted with the personal attention, very professional attitude and work approach of Michael and his team. The guys were always here promptly. Worked well, honored the property and personal items out there. Very meticulous and careful. extremely pleased with these folks...

Review by in Monterey, CA
Handcrafted Finishes by Friday provided me exceptional service. Upon contacting this company about re-finishing a wooden table (with both a burn and a mark from a non-compatible liquid solution), Micheal Friday took the time to explain exactly what damage had been done and the specifics of the necessary work to craft a seemingly new and well-functioning table. Michael was timely and extremely insightful as he gave me new information that I would have never known if he hadn't taken the time to do so. It is evident that the contractors at Handcrafted finishes by Friday truly care, not only about their craft, but also the service aspect instilled in their work. This company has gone above and beyond to help me remedy the formerly damaged piece, not to mention the prompt and premium communication i experienced. If you want something crafted with integrity and a smile, contact Handcraft Finishes by Friday! Big thank you to them.

Exterior job and the house looks like new. I really appreciated their experience, knowledge, efficiency and the ease with working with them. They have already done one of my neighbors with another lining up. Michael really knows his profession and understands his customers

Review by in Monterey, CA
Handcrafted Finishes by Friday just completed an exterior painting and repair project at my home, and I highly recommend them. It's a family business, and both Michael Friday Sr. and Mike Friday Jr. were excellent to work with. Their staff are very skilled and conscientious too. They not only provide great painting service but other related repairs as well. They can thus complete projects that otherwise might require hiring multiple contractors. Their work is outstanding, completed as promised, with no additional charges, and on-time. I wouldn't hesitate to use them 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.
