Howard does very good work and very dependable. Unfortunately, he was unable to finish the job because he was called to another site for inspection. The work was completed by a very nice gentleman but he used my trash can to mix the grout and used it for water to spread the grout. Unfortunately, I had to clean my trash can. He had no tools to hang the new curtain rod. He was informed by Howard what needed to be done the day before. I was given the option for someone to come and hang the rod but since I already had one up, I declined. All in all, I am happy with the work that was done. Kevin always tries to work with me on my projects and gives me the best price. They are professional, competent, knowledgeable, and caring. I highly recommend House Doctors.

Terrible business practices and shoddy workmanship. AVOID at all costs. I visited the property multiple times during which they claimed they were working only to find no one there. When I inspected the work, I found shoddy results (images attached). We purchased new doors for the job which were then ruined and then went unpainted. We needed to have someone come back to fix the work, further disrupting our lives. Light fixtures were incorrectly placed and the contractors seemed to have a poor grasp of basic practices as well as common sense. Many of the materials I purchased were ruined throughout the work. I was then charged significantly more than the original quote. After speaking with multiple friends who work in the field, I was told that for the size of the job, the hours being charged were exorbitant. Attempts at remediation were met with rudeness and I was then threatened by their team after asking for an updated invoice. They were nonresponsive for weeks during which we tried to get the matter sorted. Avoid these contractors.

My experience with House Doctors of DC was very positive, beginning with the pricing of the job with Kevin, through the job completion with Howard. They were very knowledgeable, professional, competent, and reasonably priced! I would definitely use there services again and highly recommend them! Ellis C. Mount Rainier

The customer service rep was rude and nasty. I will never use this company again and I suggest you steer clear.

The wood used by House Doctors of DC to replace my front porch was very poor quality. Despite contacting House Doctors of DC to replace the wood under their warranty program over a month, no one would return my call regarding the specifics of when they would fix this program.

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.
