Review by Dennis S. in Brentwood, CA
Project: Repair Drywall
Russel repaired a damage ceiling after a leak in our guest bedroom. He is not a professional. He caused severe damage to our hardwood floors as he does not pay attention or takes care of the belongings in the place where is working. He left the job during the weekend, and left the room in a mess full of wet insulation and pieces or wet ceiling wallboard over the weekend. I have asthma and we had to clean the mess he left us with as I could not breath. This was before he finished the job. After we complained about the damage to our floors, we waited over a month as he said he had no insurance and he had a friend who did floors. We provided the materials as we had spare floor boards, but his friend is not a professional hardwood floor installer. The portion of the hardwood floor has many glue spots. We found out he is a carpet cleaner professional not a hardwood floor installer. When we called today May 30 to complain to Russel about the floors, he told me to F*** Myself as he was very accommodating already. Do yourself a favor, DO NOT HIRE RUSSEL DWYER HANDYMAN. If we could give him negative stars as a review we would have done so.
Response by Russell Dwyer Handyman - Unlicensed Contractor: I try hard to be professional and not respond. Needless to say from my other countless glowing reviews this is riddled with lies. To keep it short, I could not have gone further out of my way, including paying for a floor that was not my responsibility, out of my own pocket just to have somebody try to damage my reputation. Unfortunately, out of the thousands of customers I've had, once in a while, you run into somebody trying to scam you. As was the case here. A hard lesson to learn, including ignoring signs of them screaming all types of various other companies while I was there, but still thinking I was good enough to please the unsatisfied

Fabulous. Great communicator with great experience. This man is far more than a handyman. No doubt the best we have ever met. Would highly recommend for difficult as well as all projects.

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.
