Review by in Mchenry, IL
Project: Hire a Handyman
I hired Ray to install lattice panels on several walls. He came out the day before to measure and gave me a list of materials/quantities I needed to purchase. He picked up the items for me and started to work on the project the next day as I was under time constraints. Ray worked a full five hours on this project without taking a break. He completed the job to perfection on walls that angled and some of which were out of plumb. I can use several words to describe Ray’s business acumen: professional; honest and integral; meticulous; hard working; prepared; detail-oriented; knowledgeable; fastidious; personable; and above all — reasonable in price which was important to me just starting a new business. I would hire Ray again in a heartbeat. You should hire Ray too!

Review by a homeowner in Wauconda, IL
Project: Hire a Handyman
I've had a terrible experience with this gentleman. He came did a sloppy job and will not reach back out to me in regards to coming and fixing the issue. Now we have to re-hire as well as repair the same job due to the damage he caused!

Project: Repair Drywall
Excellent and prompt work! Was able to spend time on a few drywall repairs that was not originally part of the project. Great guy!

Project: Repair Drywall
Ray was pretty flexible when a last minute scheduling error on my part delayed the start of the work by an hour. He was on time ready to work and did a great job repairing the drywall ceiling in the lower level and then installed a storm door. Both jobs were well done! I will be calling Ray for more things I need help with in the future.

Project: Hire a Handyman
came right out to quote price, fixed fence the next day; did a great job repairing fence to match old with new; gate could have been repaired a little more securely but it serves the purpose

Ray came through for me when many others didn't. He helped me figure out a plan for what I was looking to do and suggested options to help keep costs down. I will be using him again for other projects in my home.

Review by in Cary, IL
Project: Repair Drywall
I hired Ray to fix seven holes in the drywall of various rooms in the house. His rate for the labor was very reasonable and the estimate for time on the repairs was accurate. He was very tidy and respectful of my space/things/property given the messy nature of the work (plaster, sanding, in and out of the house) and cleaned up after himeself when all was said and done. The attention to detail was great and I'm very happy with the end result of the work. He even noticed a few smaller holes I hadn't been paying attention to and since their filling in wouldn't add any time into his original estimate he took care of those too.

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.
