Project: New Windows
Travis and Francoise were there every step of the way. These were new construction windows where new, large openings had to be cut and the windows had to be framed. The work was done neatly and on time and we love our new windows. Haide.
Response by Monk's Home Improvements, Inc.: I'm so happy to read your review, Haide. Glad you love your new windows! I've shared your comments with Travis and Francios. Warm Regards, Ty M.

Review by in Chester, NJ
We wanted to rearrange the fixtures so we really needed a good renovator. We found the whole experience with Monks to be top-notch. The showroom is well-stocked without being overwhelming. Our designer was Cindy Gilmore. She really got to know our tastes and needs and was extremely helpful in making choices and putting elements together over several visits. Also, Monks has software that allows you to see the finished room, which we really appreciated. The workmanship was excellent. Measurements were done, again and again, checked and double-checked, and extensive documentation provided. The project manager Bill Buckner was onsite frequently and very responsive throughout the process, as was Cindy. A very special shout-out to Isaac and his team for the actual workmanship. Isaacs tile work is gorgeous, perfectly done, very meticulous. He offered his educated opinion when a decision on a detail was needed and he always had the right answer. He and his guys cleaned up every night. The project took longer than we thought but the outcome is stunning and extremely well done.
Response by Monk's Home Improvements, Inc.: Thank you for the feedback, Steve. I've shared your comments with Cindy, Bill and Isaac. I'm very happy to hear you are enjoying your new bathroom. Regards, Ty Monk

Review by in West Orange, NJ
Getting an email from the owners with the assurance that they could be contacted directly if needed was the first pleasant surprise. The next was having a committed, personable and knowledgeable project manager. This position was critical in coordinating the parts of the job. The workers were punctual and clean. Every member of the Monk's team starting with my first call to them, portrayed caring about the actual job along with my level of satisfaction with their performance. Those things made all the difference to me. Also, having to pay by check was a plus, as the end of the job is the end of my payment. That was a great relief as it kept me mindful of making smart choices with my spending. I would absolutely hire Monk's again off the strength of the cellar and screen door installation jobs which were completed at my home.

From start to finish, the people at Monk's helped me with making decisions in addition to providing good advice. Bill Buckner, the project manager, was very knowledgeable and professional. He always promptly addressed my questions and concerns. The workers were considerate and worked diligently with attention to details. I love my kitchen!

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. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
