5.0 Scott G. Vernon Hills, IL

I called Tim late on a Friday and he came out on the next Monday. He offered suggestions to possibly get the Sump Pump to start up so to avoid needing to come out and replace it. Since none of these suggestions worked he came out and replaced the Sump Pump. at the time he had promised. He is extremely knowledgeable. I have used him many times in the past not only for work in my house but also my mother in law and mothers home too as well as friends. I would highly recommend him to others and will continue to use his services in the future.

5.0 Joan L. Arlington Heights, IL

Tim is extremely knowledgeable about everything to do with plumbing. He explains everything and points out anything he sees that could be a problem in the future. He is honest and trustworthy as well as a smart, skilled plumber. Great communicator. And also us always on time

5.0 Frank P. Schaumburg, IL

Tim replaced 2 shower faucets and repaired 2 outdoor water spigots. His communication was excellent, from scheduling to explaining the work needed to be done. He was prompt and his prices were fair and reasonable. He won't try to up sell you on extra work that doesn't need to be done.

5.0 Judy H. Rolling Meadows, IL

We have hired Know Howe in the past when we purchased our home 7 years ago. The home has needed updating here and there. Whatever Tim has done, it was done right the first time. Today he was hired for other repairs, inside and outside. Again, he is always on time, very knowledgeable in his field and professional. His charges are on target and fair. If you want it done right, you gotta' "Know Howe"!!!

5.0 Barbara M. Unknown City, XX

We have used Know-Howe multiple times over the years. They have always provided quality service in a polite and professional manner. We trust Tim to do a great job at a fair price.

5.0 Dorothy M. Arlington Heights, IL

Had a clogged drain that was connected to our furnace that needed to be rodded out. It was not in the best location to access but Tim was able to successfully complete the job. Great service and follow through!

Response from Company:

Thanks, Dorthy for the nice review. We are always glad to help and hopefully no other plumbing issues, but as always do not hesitate to call if you need us. Thanks again.

5.0 Victor R. Arlington Heights, IL

They came over and did quality work. They were extremely helpful, knowledgeable and always willing to answer questions!

5.0 Anne S. Mount Prospect, IL

Tim replaced an aging sump pump with a backup battery setup. He was one of 3 companies who gave me estimates. I went with him because he explained everything thoroughly and his estimate was reasonable. I found him knowledgeable about the task and detail oriented. It was a pleasure working with him and I plan to use his firm for any of my future plumbing needs!

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.
