Review by in Scarsdale, NY
Jimmy was very professional. He helped with every step of the project including suggesting cabinet makers. He measured and ordered the cabinets for me. He was very flexible and responsive throughout the process. Whenever I was not happy with something, he was very responsive and did his best to correct it. I am very happy with the kitchen.

Project: Hire a Handyman
Excellent job. Showed up on time and did a nice clean up after. This job was to replace a hole in the ceiling with sheetrock and painting. Very good work; I can't even see where he patched it, so smooth. I will definitely use James Agate Contracting again.

Review by in Aquebogue, NY
Project: Remodel a Bathroom
Jim Agate is a professional in the true sense of the word. He delivered precisely what was agreed to, and more. His advice before, during and after the complete renovation of our master bath only served to complement the high quality of his work which lived up to the highest standards of his profession, to which all private contractors should exemplify.

James Agate made my bathroom remodel a great experience. Not only was he timely and extremely professional, he was always available to answer questions and give suggestions when asked. His work was meticulous. He is without a doubt a great craftsman and takes pride in his work. I really was impressed with the way he left my house neat and clean every day. I would definitely hire him again!

Review by in Moriches, NY
Project: Remodel a Bathroom
James Agate was the perfect contractor for us! He helped guide us through our decisions on tile, fixtures, etc. The fact that he is qualified to do all the work himself was a plus for us. His workmanship was outstanding, he was careful with our home and cleaned up after himself, daily. We would highly recommend him!

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.
