I found J Handyman services, Javier, through HomeAdvisor and hired him but it was a mistake. He charged a lot more than the original quote and was nosy. He criticized the house and asked personal questions. He used the restroom twice and took the time to check everything. He had the nerve to make comments about everything in it. He was unprofessional aside from being slow. He did one thing twice because he didn't do it right the first time and didn't do other things. He was supposed to cover gaps with aluminum but used a filler. He made it seem like it was going to get hard, but it is soft and useless. He told me that a water pipe was leaking. It is not leaking. It seems that he wanted to damage it and charge to replace it. He kept saying that this and that needed to be done. He wanted more money. I asked him to cover a door with a piece of wood and to screw it to the door not the frame but he screwed it to the frame damaging it. It was necessary to watch him at the end. He offered me a red door he took out for someone else. I assume he charged that individual for disposing of it and wanted to sell it to me. I will never hire anyone who only has a cell phone as a point of contact. HomeAdvisor has a Fremont address but he is in Stockton. Someone who is not familiar with Stockton won't know where he is located. It is better to hire a company that is known to have all the pertinent licenses, records, etc in order with the state, IRS and pertinent agencies. Neighbors and acquaintances have been warned. Everybody be careful with who you hire. Also, Javier talks about clients. He said that the client where he got the red door hired him and then changed his mind but ended up calling him to install a $3,000 brown door and remove the old one. He also talked about the deck he is going to build. He took the time to say that the lake is man-made and the man likes fishing among other things. He said that he spent twelve hours calculating the cost and that it was going to be $7,000 but that the man had changed his mind about the design and that now he wanted to build it around a palm tree. His quotes don't mean anything anyway. He will want to nickel and dime you. He had pictures. It is unprofessional to show anyone pictures or video of someone's property without their consent or talk about them. You feel like you know these people from all the details Javier gives you. He doesn't show up when he says he will and texts minutes before the scheduled time.

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.
