Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
Very easy to work with. Very reasonable price. Conscientious about his work and not getting paint all over the place.

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
The only issue I had is that I was told that the day before my appointment I would receive a phone call to confirm that he would still be doing the work when planned. Instead, I ended up calling him the day of and was told that he couldn't make it and we had to reschedule for the next day. Once the work was done though, I was very pleased with the outcome.

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
We hired R Nelson decorating to take down wallpaper and paint our kitchen walls and ceiling.Ross was very professional, communicated the length of time it would take and it was exactly right. The kitchen looks great and his price was about 25% less than 2 others had quoted. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Review by Albert M. in Algonquin, IL
Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
Feel I was ripped off. Nice man, incompetent professional. Still cleaning up tile and floors from paint splatters. Will have to hire someone to come fix the patch job he did or failed to do. Left areas of the room not completely painted with white showing through the gray. More wall irregularities than when he came. I assume based on poor paint utilization. Poor time management which wasted my time. Cashed my check before the paint dried. I am very disappointed that Home Advisor would list and recommend this business given the poor quality of his workmanship. I will have to rethink using this site soon again after this experience. {Added in response to his reply} He was scheduled to come back to see the mess he made of the project but at the last minute called to say he'd be 2 hours late. That was typical of our experience so we told him not to bother. Are we hard to please? Perhaps, but this gentleman is hardly a professional in my opinion.
Response by R Nelson Decorating, Inc.: I did everything they asked for and then some. I write down everything I do or will do on any project. The wife told me that after I finished painting the bathroom, she did like something, so instead of having me come back and fix it, she decided to just patch over it herself and then she made a mess of it. I tried to make them happy but there are times, when you just can't make anyone happy. Her husband had mentioned that when I was working there, that someone else had painted for them in the past. So I said why didn't they have them come back and paint? He said that his wife DIDN'T want them to come back. Roas Nelson

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.
