    N/A Watertown, MA

    Did a great job they were one of the first to contact me right away

    N/A Waltham, MA

    Tom and his crew were wonderful! I was impressed by him when he first came out to look at what we wanted to do and decided to hire him based upon that first visit. He communicated very well and I always felt that I knew what was happening and when. His prices were excellent and he was there when he said he would be. The group of folks who did the installation were courteous and very respectful of my home. They worked quickly and explained everything they were doing. I could not be happier with the entire experience.

    N/A Cambridge, MA

    Very prompt, professional, friendly, and did good work.

    N/A Waltham, MA

    Great service.

    N/A Winchester, MA

    They did a wonderful job with fixing a partially botched job started by another contractor. Estimate was reasonable and timely, communication was excellent (explained what was going on, explained the creative approach to solving the problems) and workers were courteous, friendly and responsive to our questions. They started and finished the job on time. Would definitely hire them again and recommend them to friends.

    N/A Somerville, MA

    They responded quickly and did a fine job. It was just a lot of money. But that's probably an industry-wide issue.

    N/A Somerville, MA

    I just bought my condo and had them here to look over my water heater and boiler to educate me around the maintenance of this equipment. The gents arrived on time, were informed and generous with their expertise. I feel good about calling them if I should have any trouble. I also recommended them to others in my building.

    N/A Cambridge, MA

    Brendan was fantastic. Highly recommend these folks.

    N/A Cambridge, MA

    $75 fee charged just to "set foot in the door" plus $75/hour fee, even if worked for 40 minutes. Contractor was professional, friendly, and courteous, but invoice had $150 for 40 minutes of work (75 fee + 75/hour). I was expecting 75 fee to include first half hour and pro-rate the charges ($87.50 total). Even if no pro-rating, I paid $75 for 10 minutes past the 30-minute included charge. Bottom line: job well done, great service, too much money.

    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.
