Review by in Schererville, IN
Project: Hire a Handyman
Milton is great. He came to my house and fixed two kitchen drawers that had broken off their slides. They had been broken for about 3 months and I couldn't find anyone to fix them. A friend mentioned HomeAdvisor and Milton was the only one to respond. I have recommended him to several of my friends.

Milton is a really nice guy and very professional. He took care of the problem with our garbage disposal very quickly. I would not hesitate to call him again for any home repairs and I highly recommend his services.

Paid $60 more than agreed. The service was not completed. Mr. Howard returned but it took 4 weeks and 2 calls. The job was still unsatisfactory and I was told I would have to pay $35 more to complete job needing a $2 piece of wood. Luxury vinyl was damaged with hammer marks which he said was already in the tile. Horrible experience. Now I understand why his last review was many years ago. I'll have to have the floor repaired or redone.
Response by Howard's Home Repair: Remember there are two sides to every story. For my potential customers, this story would be a great conversational piece as we discuss a potential project. Thank you!

I'm so happy to have found Milton Howard through HomeAdvisor's app! He was the first contractor to respond to my request for electrical work. I was so impressed with him during our phone conversation that I hired him immediately! He came the very next day to install a ceiling fan and 5 dimmer switches. He is extremely friendly, efficient, thorough, conscientious, professional, and every great adjective you could think of! I highly recommend Milton and will happily call him for future projects!

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
Milton was extremely professional. His great work ethic was clear from the beginning and he took pride in his project. He not only accomplished the job in the stated amount of time but helped me bring my color scheme together. He was also willing to work with me with price. He did a superior job. I'm glad I found him on Home Advisor!

Project: Repair a Deck or Porch
Great experience using this company. Had a job which he was able to complete very quickly, actually earlier than expected.. Was able to accommodate my request for an after work estimate. Howard's will definitely be my go to company for my Cal City unit.

Review by in Dolton, IL
Project: Install or Replace Exterior Doors
I just love my new bathroom!!! I didn't know exactly what I wanted because my bathroom is so small. It was falling apart before my eyes. Milton Howard had an idea of what to do and without hesitation he went to work on it. He was always on time and even worked longer hours in the evening. Not only did he remodel my bathroom, he installed a service door to my garage, converted my fuse box to a circuit breaker, cleaned out a bird's nest in my kitchen's exhaust fan and replaced a few outlets in two bedrooms. Milton was very courteous, friendly and very informative about his work. I will definitely call Howard's Home Repair again.

Project: Install Vinyl or Linoleum Sheet Flooring or Tiles
Always on time! Never left the work area a mess when they finished for the day. One of the best experiences with a repair company I've ever had. Final result was excellent! Will use them again!

Project: Hire a Handyman
I live in AZ. and contacted Howards Home Repair for my rental property in Indiana. Milton Howard was promt in responding to my bid request and worked with my budget to get all my projects completed. He was very reposive to all of my questions and requests, and very prompt with returning phone calls. I am very satisfied with his workmanship and professionalism, and would recomend his services.

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.
