    Steve rebuilt our deck and did a wonderful job. Steve was responsive, reliable and offered a fair price. His work was excellent. I would not hesitate to hire him again.

    He rebuilt my home back in 2006 and is very accomplished. He has also just rebuilt my porch and I am always pleased with the work he does.

    I would use him again.

    5.0 Mike D. Franklin, MA

    Steve and his team did a great job. I will call him again when I have a project.

    5.0 George D.

    He has a good crew! He was prompt on the estimate, was on budget to the estimate, and when done we did not even know he was there!

    5.0 Dave B. Wrentham, MA

    Steve and his crew far exceeded my expectations on the screen porch build they recently finished. The quality of the job is fantastic. On top of that, Steve was right on time for the first estimate meeting, to the delivery of the materials, to the start and finish dates of the project (2 days from start to finish. The price was fair and there were no surprises. Steve also recommended we use a composite material, called Azek to trim the job out. Gorgeous! You can stop looking and just hire Howland Home Services for your project. You will not be disappointed!

    5.0 Steve B. Millis, MA

    Steve, was very reliable, communicated on progress, made some cost saving suggestions. All around he was great, will definitely be using him again......highly recommend him.

    5.0 Patti H. Norfolk, MA

    Working with Steve was a dream experience. He responded quickly to our request for a quote. He went above and beyond on the job (for example he patched some concrete work that now looks fantastic). The work he did was top notch. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for carpentry/handyman work in their home or business.

    5.0 Bill C. Franklin, MA

    I would give 6 stars if I could - most people do 80 - 90% of the job. Steve makes sure that 100% of the job is done and to your full satisfaction. Couldn’t be happier with the work.

    HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post information about themselves and their business on their profile. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information representations set forth in those profiles as they are self-reported by the Service Professional.

    HomeAdvisor verifies state-level licensing where applicable - note: some states require local or county level licensing and you should verify whether or not your pro is properly licensed.
    To find more licensing information for your state, visit our Licensing Requirements page.

    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.
