    Hired Charlie even though he was roughly 20% more than the other bids I got. He came highly reviewed so after being burned by a previous contractor I did not want to take chances. It all started off good. His work is great and the end job was well done. The issue is he did not do the entire job that we originally agreed upon which included taking trash left over from a demo from the previous contractor. Also, he did 90% of my yard and grass seeded it but then at the end says the agreement did not include the other 10% which was also messed up and needed to be done. Who in their right mind would not want the other 10% done as well even if it cost a little more? I told him originally I wanted the entire yard done and trash gone When we originally talked I told him I wanted a contract, I asked him two more times before he even started working. Even at the end of the work I still do not have a contract. He finished 85% of what we agreed upon and then still expected his entire payment, now I seen why he did not make a contract. Then he got mad and threatened to call the zoning officer on me for the trash that he left on my back porch, and would not you know it the zoning officer shows up a few days later to give us a warning. So much trash that it broke the back porch so that now it needs to be repaired. He also cracked my concrete entry to my driveway with his dump truck which I will also have to get fixed. In conclusion, Charlie does good work but make sure you get a contract before he does any work because he will change the agreement on you and still expect full payment.

    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

    9. Identity Verification (SSN)
