    Todd called me right away, came out right away, was reasonably priced, and did a good job!

    0.0 Schaumburg, IL

    Todd Nelson has a great heart, tries to be a courteous person, and has great intentions. His follow through is greatly lacking. Several times he was late to the job, or didn't show at all. Usually, he called well after the appt time to inform us he couldn't make it, or would be running two hours behind. His actions gave the impression that his time was more important than our time. If he had done one thing, give us advance notification when he was going to be late or not make it, he would have gotten a good overall rating from us. We found out after the job began, that home improvement was a sideline for Todd. Had we known this from the onset given our experience, it would have definitely influenced our decision to hire.

    Response from Company:

    Yes, this was a low point, a transitional period in my service focus as well as my life. I don't let this sorry excuse for service happen anymore. When I commit to do a job, it gets done and done right. Thank you.

    This job was in relation to insulating,drywall work,and installation of a sliding door. It was not related to house framing.

    Todd has been extremely helpful with my plumbing problems. He will be the first person I call if I need something done around the house that I dont feel I'm qualified to handle.

    0.0 Round Lake, IL

    Todd was a pleasure to work with. He installed my new sink quickly and beat the competitions quotes by a significant amount. I will definately refer him to others.

    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.
