Reliable and professional. Very responsive to questions and offered great advice on repairs. Les is very flexible with regard to changes and add-on to initial work order. I will call on him again when the need arises.

Joseph L. Smith, a small handyman company was prompt, did the job quickly, and exceeded my expectations. I will hire him again for future handyman needs.

Project: Hire a Handyman
Les arrives on time, he has placed unnecessary holes in my ceiling that I had to go to the store and purchase the the material out of my own pocket to cover up his mistakes. He did complete the job but it was done incorrectly. He was rude, angry, and kept mentioning how he needs to be paid because he has bills to pay too. I told him what I wanted and he told me that I did not need what I was asking for. I have an old house and there were no outlets in parts of my house that needed outlets, and he told me I did not need them. I was using extension cords and my home could have been a safety hazard. Now I have to finish the mess he left. He never provided a receipt or an invoice.
Response by Home Improvements and Repair: Debie at first was a very nice lady. We agreed upon a certain price for the work that was preformed. Debie wanted to break up the bill into payments. Stating she would pay at the end of each day, for the work I did. I received the first payment but she refused not paying me for the second trip. As for holes in her ceiling, I never cut or drilled holes in her ceiling. I worked in her crawl space and the walls. Due to the fact that her home is a older home. The main electrical panel could not accept anymore outlets to be installed. this is the reason I told her, I was unable to give her what she wanted. Debie wanted to keep adding small items to the list we agreed upon. After a few items were added to the list. I told her straight out that the price was going to be fifty dollars more than what we agreed upon. I gave her a large discount off the top to start with. I did offer to finish the job a month ago. She did not want me to come back. Plus, she is still not willing to pay me for the work I did do. This women is on some sort of legal drugs and is not capable of carrying out a business deal. In my defense, I have worked for and still work for people who are fully satisfied with the quality of work that I provide. I have clients from lower end to very high end homes. Some of my clients, I have had for more than four years and some are very recent clients who call me for small and large jobs. I have taken care of one top rated daycare center in Salt lake. Again, I have been working for this company for more than four years. When it comes to high end homes. my clients are comfortable in leaving me alone in their homes and one couple has had me stay in their high end home for a few days to dog sit. To finish, Debie still owes me but, instead of having to deal with her, I am willing to write off the loss. It has been over a month that I was over there to her home. She is still, after all this time, pursuing this situation for some odd reason. J.L.Smith

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.
