Review by in Virginia Beach, VA
Project: Repair a Portable Generator
The young man who answered our request was very polite, prompt, and honest, but he didn't have any idea how to repair our generator. We've been forced to take it to a shop. We were very disappointed.
Response by Shoreline Electric: Generator repairs aren't in my scope of work and I had to get that straight with Homeadvisor so they wouldn't send me anymore of those jobs. I did attempt to fix it. I checked the spark plug,oil,gas and the carburetor but it was beyond that. So I did have an idea but I didn't have the means to tear the generator apart because it's not my specialty. I did however transport the generator and a lawnmower to a repair shop for them because they don't own a truck. Really disappoints me that they'd give me a low review after doing that for them.

This guy was very unethical. He insisted on NOT providing a written contract, stating the job was so small that it wasn't required. The service had to be done in two stages. He took the full payment after the first stage and then said I would have to pay more for him to come back and complete it. He damaged my finished walls beyond what was necessary to get the job done and ran the wires on top of the rafters that would be receiving a floor so I had to reroute the wires through the rafters myself. The city inspector at the rough-in inspection told me that his work, though to code, involved some of the worst professional practices he'd ever seen. I believe that if I was a man he would have not tried to scam me like this. Shame on me for not insisting on a written agreement and for being alone in the house with this guy. I felt afraid to confront him about his change in price and the quality of his work because he was so aggressive when he told me he'd need more money to come back and finish his work. I still need this job completed but I am wary of using Home Advisor for recommendations.
Response by Shoreline Electric: I in no way insisted not using a contract. She wanted the work done asap which I did the following day. She's the one who said not to worry about a contract. And I reduced my original price by 800 dollars. The service I provided for her/kitchen remodel does have to be done in 2 stages. The city has to do an electrical rough- in inspection to look at the wire before the walls can be covered and then a final inspection when switches outlets and fixtures are installed which requires a second trip to complete. That's how construction goes and she acted like she understood that when I explained it to her and accepted that there was going to be a

Feels like I was overcharged for the work that was actually done (5-10 minutes in my house).
Response by Shoreline Electric: This customer had a circuit that had no power. I informed the customer when I spoke to him on the phone that the fee would be $175 to come out and fix the problem. So I came out and the customer had a GFCI receptacle that was tripped out. Not my fault he didn't know that. Regardless I lived up to my end of the agreement and rightfully charged him what he agreed upon.

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.
