Hired this company to demo an old bathroom and run the drain from a new bathroom to the main drain pipe. One of the workers cut a hole in my bathroom wall destroyed my electric toothbrush. When I informed the owner of the business what happened he told me he was not going to pay to repair the holes in my walls and he was not going to replace my electric toothbrush. I would not let this company nowhere near my home again.

Totally committed to doing good work. Wrapping up the installation of my sewer line was a bit challenging, I would have appreciated a better finish of covering the line. Also, it would be a good idea to keep the customer in the loop before making command decision about the contract especially if there are changes made to the agreement.

Review by in Leeds, AL
Installed a gas line from our attic down an interior wall for a new gas range. They did a good job, but the appiance installer had to open the wall and reposition the line because it was too far out and the range wouldn't sit close enough to the wall. They cleaned up fairly well in the house, but left a mess on our driveway. They were very polite and friendly and we felt they were qualified but just could have done a better job.

He did an excellent job of replacing the water heater but I had a bad experience hiring him to remodel my bathroom. A perfectly competent plumber but never hire him for remodeling.

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.
