Review by in Santa Clara, CA
Great handrails. They took a little longer than anticipated, and I ended up calling about my potential delivery and installation. I made a reservation and was happy with the results. They look great! I expected to pay about $500 less than I actually paid, but they were made to order, so I understood the difference. Christopher was very professional and fast. We highly recommend!

Review by in San Jose, CA
I was given an incorrect value for my initial quote and was surprised at the difference in value once the corrected quote was received. However, once requested, the company quickly agreed to send me picture of the item that was accidentally selected to use in the initial quote and a picture of the item the company rep and I thought was selected and agreed upon. Though obtaining an incorrect quote was a bit off-putting for my first time using the company, the customer service was great, and the installation took place without a hitch.

This is a rather unique service so not much to compare to. We had safety rails installed in our hallway and although they look nice, the finish of the wood is less than expected.

Review by in Belmont, CA
I thought the price quote was high. I do not have a final bill yet as the work was not completed until yesterday. Everyone I dealt with was very courteous and cooperative. The completed job was exactly as I needed it. I am very satisfied. As for the value for the money I can't comment on till I get the final bil

Review by in Lafayette, CA
They were wonderful people willing to tackle a very challenging job (ramps on a hillside to get my husband from the driveway up to the 2nd story of our home.) They came up with a solution after considering multiple plans to try to get the job done in just a week and a half. Others may have said it couldn't be done but they never gave up on the project and delivered in a squeezed period of time. I'd definitely use their services again- they were kind, considerate and determined to help us in this difficult time.
Response by Home Safety Services: It is very gratifying to hear these appreciative comments. Thank you Noel!

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.
