IF YOU WANT IT DONE RIGHT YOU GOTTA KNOW-HOWE. Know-Howe Home Services is different from many types of businesses we don't build things in a factory. We provide service, many times on an emergency basis, for your home mechanical systems. These are the systems that provide you with clean drinking water, water to shower and wash your clothes. Electricity to light your home, operate your computer and charge your Iphone. We also want to make you comfortable at your home with the heat and air conditioning working correctly. We have dedicated ourselves to provide these services that allow people to take their mechanical systems for granted, while you concentrate on your busy life knowing we are always just a phone call away and usually moments away.

Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because I was born in the Jefferson Park neighborhood of Chicago, a blue collar neighborhood. My father was a plumber his whole life and is respected in this industry, his father was a pipefitter for People Gas of Chicago his whole life and this is what I have chosen to make my living since graduating from Gordon Tech High School, in Chicago, and unlike a lot of fly by night plumbing service contractors I live and breath plumbing and the principle behind .

We started in this industry in 1985.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

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.
