Review by Brandon W. in Philadelphia, PA
Project: Hire a Handyman
The community I live in was actively looking for a General Contractor to do some repair work on our homes. It was a big project and we wanted to all use the same person for consistency and ease of communication. We found Jim online and had a meeting with him on August 1 with multiple people in the community. Jim seemed knowledgeable, organized, professional and friendly and the community decided that we wanted to work with Jim. I scheduled a 1:1 consultation to look at work that needed to be done and Jim arrived and did that consultation on August 20. I was told I would have a quote for a price within a few days. On August 27 I followed up by email asking for an update, to which Jim replied that day that he would have it to me by that weekend. Today is September 26 and I still have not heard back from Jim. I have tried following up by email, by calling both his cell phone and office number, and leaving voicemails on both and I have gotten no response. I've also spoken with other community members who have not heard from Jim for weeks and never had the chance to get their projects evaluated. He has more or less ghosted the project and the community. I cannot recommend Jim because the of lack of contact and communication after multiple times trying to follow up and see what the status is of taking this project on.
Response by Lockhart Construction, LLC: Brandon, Thank you for understanding the circumstances with regard to this situation. I am hoping that we can continue this project in the Spring as suggested. Please relay my thanks to those in the community for their paitence and understanding as well. Sincerely, Jim Lockhart

Review by in Claymont, DE
I contacted Jim because my door jam had cracked and broken away. He came out and took a look, and pointed out a few other things - some that I had previously noticed, and others that I hadn't, but had noticed the symptoms (improper weather stripping, for example). The price was extremely reasonable, and the quality of the work was top notch. He was also very clean, and left no mess behind.

Jim Lockhart did an excellent job installing hand railings on the front and back porches of my house. They serve functionally and aesthetically as both safety and design elements. Working with Jim was great. His estimates and suggestions were excellent. He's a great communicator. His crew was very hard working and Jim supervised excellently. I would hire Jim for any and all future home improvement work.

Jim, the owner, changed out broken springs on my garage door. Not only was he very polite and courteous, he was able to come the same day and proposed arriving 30 minutes after I got home. Because we're living in a time where you have to be a bit more cautious about who you have working in your home, I was blown away and felt at ease by Jim emailing me his contractor license and liability insurance certificate immediately upon scheduling the appointment. After completing the job, he was nice enough to discuss a large project I am thinking of doing in the near future and things I should consider. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable and greatly appreciated his patience and *willingness* to answer the many questions I had. I am definitely a happy customer and would highly recommend him.

Jim built handicap ramps, finished existing door molding and mounted electric spot lights on my house. He did this with VERY short notice and his responsiveness, customer service, and quality of work is unsurpassed. Crew was outgoing, friendly, very friendly and instilled trust. Some of his competitors might be cheaper but I know from experience that I dont want the headaches and extra long term costs that come with cutting corners.

Project: Repair Cabinets
Arrived on time. Completely prepared for the repair job on our cabinet drawers. We are disabled and don't have a big budget. His pricing was more than fair. Completely satisfied. Would recommend him anytime.

Project: Install or Replace Drapes or Curtains
My wife and I recently hired Lockhart to install curtain rods in our two story family room, 17 feet high. Jim and his team went above and beyond to insure that everything was perfect. They even used special screws that we needed to hold the rods in place, and took the rods down and put them back to ensure they were in the perfect place. They even repaired and repainted the drywall when they were done. These guys do a great job, and are very courteous and extremely professional. I'd recommend them for anything!

The owner of the company came out and gave an estimate, he was straight and to the point He had 2 of his employees come out, they were very polite, courteous and very patient in answering all of our questions. We were extremely happy with the electrical work and the spotlights that were installed outside.

  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.
