Project: Remodel a Basement
They are very prompt and not only showed up on time but they showed up early. They are very good about being open to suggestions and very good with communication on what they were doing and if they had suggestions on the project they were very reasonable. The project was supposed to take two weeks but they had it completed in a week and a half. I was very impressed with how they worked!

Review by in Canonsburg, PA
He did a wonderful job on our bathroom. We had a few minor issues after it was done, due to normal first time use and he came back on a Saturday to fix them within a half hour of the call. Eric and John were very professional and kept us in the loop at all times, also they cleaned up after themselves each day and were quick and efficient. I would highly recommend them. Our project was a completely new master bath. We are delighted with it.

We had hired Eric to push out one of our exterior walls. During the period he was working on the home, we noticed we had water coming in to our basement. We asked Eric to come and take a look and see if it was work he thought he could do. He agreed and said it would not be a problem to rectify the water leaking into the basement. He gave us a quote for the work, and agreed to do the work while performing the addition. He then started to dig around the house in order to put roofing tar on the exterior of our basement walls informing us this will create a waterproof barrier to help stop water going into the basement. He then told us he put a french drain at the footer of our house to get the water away from our basement. This french drain never had any water come out of it, and we never stopped having water come into our basement, if anything we noticed more water after the work was done. This occurred multiple times after the work was done. We notified Eric about this issue, he came out to take a look and informed us he would then put in a second french drain further away from the house and this would then stop the water problem. We wanted him to dig up the original french drain around our homes foundation but he refused, stating this wasn't necessary. He completed this work on the additional french drain and again, the new french drain never worked. I actually used a hose to test this french drain and the water literally poured into our basement when put directly into the french drain's access point. At this point, we notified Eric again and he informed us that the reason both french drains didn't work was because our gutters had runoff from the roof and it filled the drain with silt/mud. He also then at this point claimed he was not a waterproofing expert and never claimed to be. This is true, he never said he was a waterproofing expert, but what he did say was that he could stop the water coming into our basement and took our money as a result. All the time the work was being done he never mentioned that he thought we should consult a waterproofing company or even get a second opinion. After much persuasion, Eric dug up the original french drain around the footers of our home. This resulted in finding out how badly the work was done around the home. Eric essentially made a trough on the outside of our basement. He dug down to the footers, filled about 3 feet with gravel, laid a layer of weed blocking fabric on top of the gravel, and then corrugated pipe on the fabric. He then filled the rest with gravel up to the surface. After having a waterproofing company AND an architect come in to evaluate the work, it was determined the french drain would never have let water flow through it as it would have fallen straight through the pipe and simply built up around our house until it went inside. It was also determined that roofing tar is simply a damp proof solution to basement walls rather than waterproofing. We should have done more research on our own, but based upon Eric's reviews on home advisor and also his confidence that he has put in many french drains without any issues and had worse water issues that were correctly by him on his own property we had no reason to question his expertise on the matter. We have since come to realize Eric is far from an expert in any drainage solution or waterproofing on homes. While he did come back to the property to put in a second french drain and then later dug up the original french drain he lied to us for months about how much of the home was tarred and also where the french drain was. Both of these are reasons as to why we could not stop water coming into our home and why it appeared to get worse after the work Eric did. We now have to pay to have the french drain properly installed, and Eric has refused to refund any of our money or do the work correctly.

Review by in Canonsburg, PA
Our tile project was a backsplash in our kitchen. Eric Matson came within a few days to give us an estimate. I kept him informed as to the delivery date for the tile and he was able to come the next day to start the project. He was in and out in two days as promised. The finished backsplash is beautiful and the workmanship professional. Eric and John were polite, efficient, and worked well together.

Another contractor was supposed to do this work. After several attempts to get an estimate from him, I found Eric on HomeAdvisor. He came out the next day and gave me an estimate immediately. He kept in touch throughout the whole process and went above and beyond our expectations. Eric and John did excellent work! I plan on having Eric do additional work for me in the future.

Project: Hire a Handyman
My mail box was knocked down. If your mail box isn't standing the postal service will not deliver your mail. My mailbox was replaced with a new one that matched the others in the HOA within 24 hours. Also it was in the middle of a snow storm. Who knew that there are some really hard working reliable and honest handymen out there. Thanks Eric.

I made the arrangements for these repairs for my elderly mother. Eric was very professional, helpful and trustworthy. Mom was very pleased with how he handled the project and his level of honesty about the work that needed to be performed. We would definitely call again.

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.
