    I hired Richard to assess a minor project and to provide a letter that I can give to my condo board so I can get approval to start the project. I selected Richard becuase his rate was much lower than the other engineers that I talked to. Richard came to the property and did a 5-10 minute assessment, explaining to me that there were no issues with the project from his view. When I received his written assessment, there was extra wording at the end that stated that something else should be looked into, something that he had not discussed with me while on-site. I am unable to use his assessment, it was a waste of time and money.

    Mr. Peterson was wonderful, prompt, and professional. He has no fancy website and seems to be a freelancer rather than a member of a big firm, but nobody can touch him on price. He showed up the day after he called me, analyzed a failing retaining wall and drew up and mailed me the diagram and plans for replacement with a list of contractors to get bids from. Absolutely make sure to call him before hiring any other engineer. Failure to do so could result in paying many hundreds of extra dollars. I know this from talking to other engineers prior to calling him.

    HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post information about themselves and their business on their profile. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information 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.

    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.
