HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post information about themselves and their business on their profile. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information or representations set forth in those profiles, as they are self-reported by the Service Professional.

HomeAdvisor verifies state-level licensing where applicable - note: some states require local or county level licensing and you should verify whether or not your pro is properly licensed.

Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because whether it's a minor or major home remodel/renovation or just a simply repair that is completed, I enjoy the daily self gratitude and reward of the work completed. Everyday a new phase of the project is completed and it time to move on the next one. Although there are some obstacles and problems that arise, this adds to the gratification of overcoming the hurdles to achieve the finish line..

We started in this industry in 1975.

We describe our business as Multi-generational

Review by in Providence, RI
Father and son Rob & Derek worked well together, were able to address unsuspected issues creatively and efficiently contracting process was transparent & above board and all the work to be done was clearly submitted in the contract and any issues not covered in the contract were discussed in advance and a change order was put in place quality and finish of work was excellent and innovated. They showed up on time and were professional and fun to work with the job came out better than we had imagined. We would use them again. Peter & Rick

Derek and Bob are very friendly and courteous. I had a deadline for my project and they met it with time to spare. I will have them back for another project in the near future.

Review by Elena S. in Providence, RI
Beware! FRAUD! Derek is both unscrupulous and disingenuous in the way he conducts business. He is disrespectful in the way he treats his clients and will arbitrarily make changes to the scope of work without receiving client permission. Additionally, he threatened us, in our home, screaming and threatening legal action when confronted about refusing to complete the work in our original agreement. He is EXTREMELY unprofessional. This was our first experience with a contractor and has taught us some hard lessons. Update April 5, 2019 Update: 2 days after Derek left our house not fully completing the project according to our initial agreement, we found 2 giant cracks in the bathroom wall which would imply poor priming and painting something that should be fairly basic for such an aexperienced contractor....

R&D Construction did a fantastic job of remodeling our kitchen and living room. Very skilled craftsmen, worked on a timely basis and cleaned up every day. Very happy with the results and would recommend R & D for any similar jobs.

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.
