The guidance that we received from Neil when launching into a basement waterproofing and renovation has been invaluable. He caught several things that would have been real pitfalls for us later, including that a wall we previously thought was not load-bearing actually was! He thoroughly explained all the issues involved and possible remedies we could implement. Neil was also really good about telling us which things were essential and which were more optional or could be addressed at a later date. It is clear he has a real passion for the work, is extremely knowledgable and communicates well. We felt so much better armed to go into conversations with general contractors after our meeting with Neil. He was also extremely generous with his time - we did not feel rushed at all during our walkthrough and he was available for follow-up questions afterward. Homeowners, do not let mistakes during renovation bite you later - take the time to hire Neil first!
Response by Neil B. Schmelkin: Thank you, Emily, for these words. It is a pleasure working with you as well, keep me posted as the job progresses!

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.
