5.0 George B. Johnstown, PA

A very great person to work with and he did a great job.

4.5 Constance V. Trafford, PA

Josh Rutter removed a huge tree stump and the roots from my yard in Oct.10,2020. He does an excellent job, with a remote, in maneuvering a big machine thru a small yard. Dealt with unforeseen and unexpected interruptions very well. Answered all questions, was punctual and friendly. Would recommend him to all. The only negative...his company does not remove the mulch and he tells you this upon contract. I, like most folks, did not comprehend that I would have 3+ tons of it. As a senior citizen female, I could not remove it myself and went thru much hardship trying to find someone who would. No one wants this stuff, despite what some people say, and no one will remove it for free. Mulch removal was almost as costly as Rutters work. He is A GREAT WORKER and REASONABLE IN PRICE, JUST BE PREPARED AND HAVE SOMEONE LINED UP TO DEAL WITH THE CLEAN UP--IF YOUR FAMILY WILL DO IT FOR FREE BE HAPPY. I had no free help to work with and the mulch was approx 22 inches deep covering an entire 8x12 lawn. Then, be ready to plant grass seed.

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.
