Project: Inspect a Home
Bob is prompt, professional, friendly, and thorough. As a first time home buyer and having bought a fixer upper at that, his detailed report and recommendations have been extremely helpful in allowing me to prioritize projects as well as given me confidence in knowing what exactly is going on with my home. I would recommend Bob to anyone.

Review by in Wiscasset, ME
Project: Inspect a Home
Came as scheduled. Bob is very thorough and doesn't miss much. I am pleased with his work. The only negative I have is the length of his agreement. I also feel he could shorten his report without loosing any substance. I would hire him again for his professionalism.

Review by in Hallowell, ME
Project: Inspect a Home
Bob Smith was professional, courteous, and did a thorough review of the premises. I had an uncertificated inspector to do the review prior to Bob. When the uncertificated inspector heard all Bob does on a review, he recommended I hire Bob! Thanks Bob for a job well done.

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.
