Review by in Pleasant Hill, CA
We needed a lot of work. We had extensive rot at the foundation, and underneath the bathroom. Glad Robert and his crew helped us through this mess. Robert was easy to communicate with, always answered or returned my calls. We are happy with the end results.

Review by in Pleasant Hill, CA
Robert and his crew are great! We just completed a major rehab starting with a 2300 sqft foreclosed home ripped down to the studs. The end result is a beautiful custom built home. Along the way we encountered several unexpected issues and Robert handled all of them very well. Robert and his team also gave some very useful design advice which greatly improved the end result. Robert also personally supervised all of the most critical construction steps like pouring the foundation for the new addition and provided excellent overall management of the project and coordination all of the people.

Robert is a consummate professional. He looked at our project, provided sensible suggestions, offered a competitive price, completed the work on-time and on-budget, and even did a few extra things that he didn't charge for. He managed the project beautifully. I'd highly recommend him for even much bigger, more complex jobs than our bathroom remodel and custom sand-box.

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.
