Project: Hire a Handyman
Gus did a great job repairing my 3 cabinet drawers. I will definitely hire him again. He knows what he's doing, shows up on time, and his hourly rate is better than reasonable!

Project: Hire a Handyman
Gus was very nice and arrived when he said he would. He repaired a couple of drawers. (1 didn't work at all), we are Really happy Was able to fix it! He also fixed a bedroom door that wouldn't close. We really liked Gus. The only negative is Gus charges by the hour & not by the job. We are retired & like to know how much the cost will be. I recommend Gus, he did a good job fixing our drawers & was very neat cleaning up when he was done.

Review by in Buffalo Grove, IL
Project: Hire a Handyman
Very happy with Gus' service. He did quite a few small things for me, all with good quality and extremely pleasant yet professional service. (This is important, as I had to stop using another provider who send different people each time and one spent 3 hours (while I was WORKING) incessantly talking and also complaining about his life, his ex-wife, etc). Will definitely be using Gus again.

Gus came out and fixed all the thing that we have been putting off the the past 2 years. We will give him a call when we need him again and give out his number as a referral.

Review by in Park Ridge, IL
Gus was very nice and punctual. He fixed the tracking on my closet doors very nicely. When one started sticking a little, he returned promptly to readjust it-no questions asked. He also adjusted s few doors so that they would not rub on the floor. I am satisfied and would recommend him.

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.
