Everything was what one would expect from a contractor. On time, neat and cleaned up after work every day. Superior workmanship and finished ahead of schedule at a great price.

Enrique responded promptly to our request for an estimate. After ordering and receiving the materials, he and Hubert began work immediately, removed the existing deck, installed concrete supports, built the framing and installed the deck. The project was completed in just over two days. Enrique is experienced in working with Trex decking, our choice of material, and the finished deck is beautiful. All trash was removed and the work area cleaned perfectly. Enrique is very professional in his approach to us and in all aspects of the work. We plan to hire him to rebuild a fence.

Review by in Orinda, CA
Enrique communicated everything he was going to do and then did it. The weather wasn't cooperating, but he waited until conditions were right.

Provided excellent input into the design of the project based upon in depth knowledge of code requirements. Solid assessment of the project before providing quote and statement of work which kept project within estimate. Every member of the project team were friendly and professional. Quality work and fair pricing. Have other projects in mind. We will be a recurring customer.

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.
