The first workman was able to get the pilot light lit, but it didn't stay on, and he recommended by its age, a new one. They gave me an estimate, and we set up a time to return. They came on time, did the work, and under cost! Both workman were professional, clean and did their jobs competently.

They quoted me a price plus tax over the phone when I asked how much it would be. I was very surprised to find out he did not include labor when I got the bill.

First company whose employee understood his role in business - I am the boss and he works because I hired and paid him, so I am the one he had to please. Which he did with perfect manners and a super attitude.

Review by in Des Moines, IA
They called right after I pushed send on the Home Advisor website. I explained what I needed done and he gave me a general quote to install a tankless water heater that I would purchase. It did take another call on my part to set up an installation date but got it done. Arrival was late but no big deal. As the unit I purchased didn't come with all the parts needed (like the flue), one man ran for parts while the other started work. They did a real nice job and cleaned up after themselves. They also removed the tank water heater. I hope they donated it to someone as it worked just fine but a 30 gallon was not big enough for our needs. The job took about 6 hours but I enjoyed a long shower without running out of hot water. Nice!

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.
