Andrew was outstanding! One suggestion: He needs to share his talents. In other words, he should consider becoming an Adjunct Professor. Then he could share his wealth of knowledge with others. These skills are greatly needed today. Just check the research.

Review by in Lake Zurich, IL
There is a minimum charge of one hour at $49 per half hour plus a service charge of $45 and a van stock fee of $10. In total I was charged $153 for 20 minutes of work. That comes out to $459 dollars per hour. My lawyer charges less than that. I was not told of the minimum charge and will use someone else next time.
Response by Mr. Handyman of South Lake County: We appreciate your comments. Before booking an appointment, our charges are usually explained in full as part of our procedures. When we arrived at your home, we once again go over our rates and ask that you sign. We would have gladly helped with any other items to fill the hour. It is not our intent at any time to confuse or deceive anyone. Thank you for appreciating the quality and service we provided.

Project: Hire a Handyman
Pleasant to work with. Work quality was excellent. However, the job was over-priced. Tear-off and replace ceramic tile in a 130 sq. ft. laundry room cost $2700 and I bought the tile and grout separately. And the tear off was easy but required dura-rock underlayment.
Response by Mr. Handyman of South Lake County: Thank you for comments. Please note the estimate was to install tile flooring. We explained when onsite that we needed to add to the sub-floor with Dura-rock due to the cracking occurring. This added to the cost of materials as well as installing base trim. We also had to work with numerous cuts around fixtures and also modified and re-installed door. We are sorry for any confusion. It was not our intent other then to provide a proper solution to your flooring. We would have liked to discuss your issues while we were doing the job as maybe we could have provided a solution regarding the price.

Project: Hire a Handyman
Quick response to my inquiry and easy to schedule. Arrived right on time. Got to work and didn't waste time. Got stuff done. Missed one detail (fabric cover for box spring that was assembled) that I fixed later. I'm not able to evaluate how this service would do with a more complex job, but this worked out well for me and got something done efficiently that I couldn't do myself. If I had it to do over again, I would certainly call them again.
Response by Mr. Handyman of South Lake County: We appreciate your comments. Thank you.

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.
