Review by Georgia D. in Cleveland, OH
Please be careful when dealing with this company. They falsely mislead me into believing the A/C unit at one of my properties was shot and needed replacing. Long story short, I gave them a down-payment, they said technicians would install the unit the next day I discover a month later the install wasn't completed and then learned from another HVAC guy that the unit just needed cleaning and thermostat replacement. Old unit works like a charm now. 9 months later, I had to take Solid Ground Construction to court because John Larussa the company VP wouldn't refund my money and got my settlement in court.
Response by Solid Ground Construction, Inc.: We settled this before it went to small claims in mediation. Fortunately for (consumer name withheld per their request) we did not pursue her breach of contract.. She told my tech and I that she had several HVAC people out to fix the A/C unit and it still did not work and wanted the unit replaced. We never examined the unit! We purchased the new unit and were ready to install; she changed her mind and wanted to cancel because she was selling the rental property. We gave her her money back to settle this. She is a very dishonorable individual

Review by in Berea, OH
We took on a big project late in the summer when deciding to build an addition. Signed the contract in July with Solid Ground. When looking for hiring someone we wanted someone who could build the addition better than my original house was built, and wanted someone who would stay on the job and have it 100 percent completed before the holidays. I am extremely happy to say it is completed before the holidays and it is built better than my house! We have a large family and living through the process did have some hairy living arrangements but that is to be expected with the construction job our house entailed,homeowners need to realize that. We added two bedrooms, a full bathroom, a den, and remodeled a master bath. Everything is beautiful. John, David and Rick were wonderful, they really take pride in doing the job right, they will not take short cuts. That is what a homeowner wants, someone who is reasonable and fair to deal with, someone you can trust has the homeowners best interest and someone who wants to sign their name on the job they did. We are 100 percent happy with the addition and we are so happy it is 100 percent done. The best form of advertising is word of mouth, speaking homeowner to homeowner I would let you know to call Solid Ground.

Everyone on the job is courteous and professional. They take extreme pride in their work. They did a rubber balcony roof, railing to code, refit a door, tiling repair and re leveled a vanity, and total overhaul of front porch including hand staining wood flooring to our precise taste. We are totally blown away by this company and their integrity. They got us pricing way below any other estimates, for higher standards of work and quality of products way beyond what all our comparable a showed. They are truly exceptional. We will go to them for everything our home needs in future!

Review by in Cleveland, OH
Solid Ground was a very easy company to work with, especially for being the large project that I had for them. John LaRussa was very fair in dealing with, and explained the process in detail as it moved along. All of the workers involved were skilled in their assignments and, just as important, trustworthy to where I could leave them unsupervised in my home all day while I was at work and never worried about anything. Solid Ground is a company that I would recommend to anyone looking to hire for a remodeling job, large or small.

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.
