Response by Mike's Home Repair & Paint Co.: Mary was very pleasant to work for... I am a little surprised at her rating for value because she seemed fine with my proposal originally. Also, we did some extra work for her at no extra charge. I believe my rates are competitive with other contractors in the area.

I had a real problem with my front door. He was very busy but still came that morning and fixed it. He didn't give up until he solved the issue.

Review by in Concord, Ma, MA
Mike was excellent! He did a great job on several projects for us. We were going to have our house painted and needed to repair rot and other damage before the painting was done. Mike did a terrific job doing that, and he went on to make much more important repairs that made the house really "shipshape," correcting a number of things not done properly when the house was originally built. He also replaced clapboard, the tread on deck stairs, a railing, and a window storm/screen unit. He was very conscientious, thorough, polite and professional.

Mike was very attentive to details and worked carefully to make sure that new windows fit properly into the cavities in our old house. He was responsive to inquiries and our requests and made sure we knew about extra work/costs that may be required. He works mainly with Harvey Windows. When they delivered a broken window to him, he worked with them to get a replacement and to accommodate our schedule.

We had a couple of items that needed to be addressed prior to the closing of a house sale. Mike was able to fit us into his schedule and he got the job done on time and within the estimate he provided. He communicated well and he was flexible in the approach he took to resolve the issues. We are completely satisfied with Mike's work and professionalism and we would use him again without hesitation.

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.
