    Rick Kessinger and his team did a great job on paint my family room. The room has a cathedral ceiling so I was definitely in need of professional help and I picked the right team for the job. They showed up on time and was able to complete the job in one day. His team was able to fix a lot of the issues that I had with drywall from previous contractors. A stone wall that I had installed over the fireplace had gaps in that was covered by quarter round trim. The painter was able to remove that trim and filled the gaps for a seamless look. They were also able to finished a wall that was left half completed from another contractor while renovating.

    R B Kessinger did an excellent job. Richard came in and displayed excellent craftsmanship, and project came to a wonderful conclusion. He left my home cleaner and more organized than before he arrived. You would have never known a construction project had been done.

    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)
