    5.0 Scott G. Tallahassee, FL

    Used Scott as a sub on a job. Great work, fast response, happy client, and a fair price for the qualify of the work. Would use again.

    5.0 Bryn S. Havana, FL

    Scott is a very dedicated, talented and customer pleasing man! He gladly came back and retouched the stain on the new front door he installed... 3 times! The door itself was expertly installed and his advice from the start was invaluable. Call him! You will be so glad you did...we are!


    To Whom It May Concern, I am completely unsatisfied and disappointed with my business dealings with Mr. Scott Purvis. I gave Mr. Purvis a deposit for services dated 10/21/2016, and was told my service would be performed by Thanksgiving. After four months of excuses, on February 11th, 2017, Mr. Purvis finally showed up with a completely unsatisfactory product. He misrepresented his ability. He will not return any of my deposit; therefore my only recourse is small claims court. I strongly do not recommend his services.

    5.0 Charles B. Tallahassee, FL

    Both Scott and his helper were thorough, pleasant and easy to work with. When he had to attend a personal matter, he was quick to notify me of any delay and keep me informed throughout the project. I would recommend him to anyone.

    5.0 Perry J. Tallahassee, FL

    Mr. Purvis was prompt in his response for service. He kept me informed throughout the project regarding material costs and estimated time of repair. My fence was repaired and I am totally satisfied with his work. I would recommend Mr. Purvis for any fence repair or installation.

    5.0 Noelle C. Tallahassee, FL

    Great job! we are very happy with the work. Scott communicated well and was always prompt. He paid great attention to detail and we wiould highly recommend him for any woodwork needs you have.

    5.0 Jeff E. Panacea, FL

    Scott did great work and was fair priced. He arrived when agreed and did the work quickly. I would recommend and utilize Mr Purvis in the future.

    5.0 Elizabeth J. Tallahassee, FL

    Scott is a great hire! Just moved to FL and needed a new deck. He worked quickly on getting the deck plans laid out and was very accomodating to us as we asked for some custom work on it. He was so sweet with our kids and actually taught our son some carpenter tricks :) Our deck is gorgeous and friends are complimenting us all the time! He was a little more than the other bids we received, but I believe you get what you pay for and I wasn't wrong! Bonus: he also does blacksmith pieces and he built the best looking stands for our tea lanterns! I'd call him back for that again alone!

    5.0 Vickie N.

    Mr. Scott Purvis exemplifies the utmost of professionalism and thorough knowledge in all aspects of home improvements. He is proactive in all his endeavors, honest, trustworthy and consciences in completing his projects in a timely meticulous manner. We highly recommend Scott Purvis for any renovations a home may need.

    5.0 Luke B. Tallahassee, FL

    Somewhat expensive but excellent work and customer service.

    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.
