Steve came over for a free estimate and was on time (!) and very professional. Sent me the estimate within a couple of hours. After a few tweaks we set a date for the work (replacing kitchen sink, faucet and garbage disposal). Spencer and his assistant came one hour into the two-hour appointment window and was very professional and knowledgeable about the task at hand. He finished the work in the timeframe he gave me (2 hours) and didn't mind my watching the whole operation (I'm curious, not nosy!). Both were friendly without being distracted, and except for a few little snags that had to do with my existing construction (which they were able to solve with a little sweat), all was done and it looks beautiful! I will definitely go back to Mr. Rooter for any plumbing needs I might have!

I have no complaints about the plumber; in fact, I would hire Chris again. On this job, he repaired a loose kitchen faucet--as I requested. However, my problem is with the company receptionist who "confirmed with her boss" that the plumber also would do the recaulking around my kitchen sink. However, upon arrival Chris assured me that he is not a "good" caulker, and the task is not something he expected to do. I thanked him for his honesty, and asked that he complete the repair of the faucet, which he did respectfully. He was quite knowledgeable and explained the problem quite clearly to me.

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.
