Review by in Southington, CT
Guy was very professional, trustworthy and easy to work with. Best contractor we ever hired. He was flexible and offered suggestions. He was creative, adaptive and willing to complete additional work we requested once the project began. We converted an open foyer into a room, had a dormer built, house siding changed, maintenance free porch installed and custom woodworking built. Everything turned out absolutely beautiful. He has pride in his work and outstanding attention to detail. We would highly recommend Guy if you are planning on doing an addition or house renovation. We definitely plan on using him again for future projects.

My ratings likely will change. The kitchen is not done yet, probably another three weeks or so.

Finished on schedule, and on budget... Was willing to work around all our special requests, and offered several suggestions to LOWER the cost, rather than trying to "up sell". Honest, trustworthy...would gladly rehire

Guy was very professional and completed the work quickly. I had major water damage from a broken pipe this winter and needed ceiling repair and floor replacement. Work was done while I was out of town, when I returned the work was complete and the house was sparkling clean. I would highly recommend him.

Easy contractor to work with and he listens to your inputs. He worked to correct issues that were found, even issues his subcontractors created.

Review by in Southington, CT
Guy was a pleasure to work with. From start to finish the job was done right. He has quality subs and takes pride in his work. Most importantly, at the end of the job when all that's left is the finishing details that some contractors neglect he takes his time and makes sure it is done right. I would highly recommend Guy if you are planning on doing an addition.

Review by in Rocky Hill, CT
A very diligent and nice man but my house was a complicated job. I was to have a load bearing wall removed. All of the load came down upon two posts but he was not aware of how complicated the circa 1820 design was. He wanted to continue the job but was terminated. A company specializing in historical homes was brought in to finish the job. Also, too much of the ceiling along the wall was cut out and now needs to be redone, along with the kitchen base cabinets which need repair due to their manhandling when removed.

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.
