Review by in Wayne, NJ
John is a true professional, he did work on our second floor opening a wall,installing railings and adding trim work with new doors to our bedrooms. He was a pleasure to work with from bid to completion and the work quality was outstanding and he cleaned up so well you would not have know how big the job was! We would recommend John for any job big or small.

Review by in Wilmington, VT
John was amazing! Absolutely the best contractor I have worked with. He was a pleasure to deal with, and the work he did was outstanding. He painted our very large three story house + shed on a short notice, and when we needed a few extra things done, he not only did them well, but charged very little on top of the original price. I will be using John regularly, and am so happy to have such an excellent contractor to rely on from now on. Highly recommended!!!

John was excellent to deal with. His craftsmanship far exceeded our expectations and his attention to detail is far superior to anyone else we have ever dealt with. John kept us updated with his progress through the project and even sent us pictures. He was extremely reliable and called us back immediately on any questions we had. We will definitely use John on future projects.

John and his staff were great. His work was perfect. John completed the work exactly as we discussed and on time and on budget. He was very neat and cleaned up every day. John is a pleasure to work with. He is a contractor who truly displays skill, knowledge, expertize, and customer service. I will use his services again.

It was a pleasure to deal with a contractor with such high standards of service and workmanship. John is knowledgeable, skillful, dependable,and honest.He handled some unforeseen problems easily in the demolition and rebuilding of a large deck .All this was done in a professional and timely way. I would definitely hire him for future construction jobs.

Review by in Brattleboro, VT
John put in a new door leading upstairs--he had to build the frame and install it; it's a perfect fit. He built wonderful custom shelving that is very artfully done--with subtle "notched" connections that make it look very professionally done. John also built us some custom shelving in our garage, and they're so beautiful, we want them to be in our house! I'd use John again in a heartbeat--the man knows how to build things, and he does quickly, efficiently, and beautifully. Well worth the money, and one of the best contractor experiences I've had in New England (and I've had a lot!!). ;)

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.
