5.0 Victor G. Tooele, UT

I hired Motavation Mudd Man to do a ceiling repair and he has exceeded my expectations. Not only is the repair well blended into the existing ceiling but his professionalism is unmatched. I will be using him him for all future repairs and will be referring him to friends and family. Thank you Motavation Mudd Man for an exceptional job.

3.0 Mary jane W. Willard, UT

I feel his work was good but he had to use my hair dryer to dry the mud. He forgot to bring his dryer and I did not like that. It was an easy fix, mud only and he did not have to replace any sheet rock. It was a small area about 4x4 and he charged us $350.00 which I felt was way too much.

Response from Company:

Hi Mary Jane! Thank you so much for your review and feedback. I just wanted to address the items brought up in your review. I apologize for being unprepared and not having my heat gun to help with the drying process. I know this can be seen as unprofessional and there is no excuse for it. As for the price, I apologize that this was seen as too expensive. This repair was expressed as urgent due to painters coming the following morning. There was no emergency or same-day fee charged to get this taken care of. The price for a 4?x4? repair is $337 per the calculator used in the industry. There was also a little bit of work to be completed before.

Gerardo is awesome!!! He mud, taped textured and did some repairs for me. His quality of work is unmatched. He worked efficiently and for a very reasonable price. Would hire him again in a second.

5.0 Alyssa H. Roy, UT

Gerardo did an amazing job. I have hired him to do 3 big projects in my home. He has done the bathroom, my whole garage (which had horrible drywall in there prior) and now finishing my kitchen gut and remodel. I'm so so happy with his work. He is very fair on pricing and is well worth it! I highly recommend him to everyone who needs work. He has also done painting for me and did a great job!

5.0 Ben C. Roy, UT

Called me the same day I went on line. Asked to come over to look at the job and gave me a bid. Very friendly, professional, on time and did a great job. He asked us if we were happy with the job. He did a great job in his clean up and the time it took him to do the job. I will hire Gerardo Mota again for other jobs.

HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post information about themselves and their business on their profile. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information representations set forth in those profiles as they are self-reported by the Service Professional.

HomeAdvisor verifies state-level licensing where applicable - note: some states require local or county level licensing and you should verify whether or not your pro is properly licensed.

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.
