Review by in Chicago, IL
Mr. Shim called me back immediately to discuss the job, make sure he understood what I was looking for and scheduled a time to come out and provide an estimate. He came prepared to provide suggestions on how to do the work and provide options on the closet doors. He was on time for meets, professional and true to the working time tables we agreed upon. Mr. Shim completed the job in the original time table, even with unexpected set backs on the job. Would definitely recommend.

Project: Hire a Handyman
Andre was very professional and knowledgable. He competed one project quickly, with quality and a fair price. Because of this, I hired him for a second project. Again, the price was fair and the job was done well. With both projects, he educated me on what he was doing and why he was doing it. I will definitely call him again if needed.

Review by Dee T. in Westchester, IL
Project: Hire a Handyman
I inquired about a large flooring/ceiling job in my basement. Shim took $124 for an estimate that should be free of charge. It has been 1 week and no estimate or contract has been produced. In person, we agreed on the date to begin work, and now Shim is wavering on that. Unprofessional, incompetent, no regard for verbal agreements, poor customer service, unable to solve the problem at hand. Only interested to take money by just showing up at your door. Makes a business solely on estimates; has no intention to deliver any work. BUYER BEWARE.
Response by Shim's Remodeling Company: We take customer satisfaction seriously as evidenced by our other ratings. We were unable to come to an agreement on how to approach her project based on an unrealistic timeframe this customer was requiring. We do charge a consultation fee which is reviewed up front. The project this customer was requesting assistance with was not in line with the project she actually was requesting. We apologize we were not able to meet her needs based on the information provided when assessing her project directly.

Project: Hire a Handyman
Hired the company to handle some handyman work around my condo. Andre was professional, knowledgeable and able to get the work done in essentially 2 days. He was even able to assist with an extra job we hadn't originally discussed upfront. Definitely would recommend him to someone looking for repairs and/or remodeling services.

Review by in Chicago, IL
Andre was wonderful. He is a man of his word and an excellent carpenter The job was much harder than putting in a regular door because it was not a standard size. Andre worked with me every step of the way. He was patient and professional even when I asked the same question twenty times. He was always on time and contacted me when he said he would. He was extremely polite and courteous. He was very neat and completely cleaned up each day he worked. The finished job is remarkable! It doesn't look like it was just installed. It looks like it was there all the time. It's hard to find the right person when you are looking to get something done. It can be a real crap shoot. Boy did I ever pick the right guy. I have absolutely nothing but praises for him and his work. Not only would I whole heartedly recommend him, I would use him again in a heartbeat. He was also extremely affordable.

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.
