The Sound By Design team is knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. These gentlemen did excellent work on my home ethernet and router installation. I am very pleased with their work and will likely hire them again in the future.

Installers called before arrival and antenna installation was completed within estimated time. Weather was cold and miserable but work was completed as promised.

Not as much experience as I expected. Had to have several people to do what I think is a simple job. Didn't have all the tools needed which delayed the job.

Shortly before Thanksgiving I found Sound By Design through HomeAdvisor and was impressed with its high customer ratings; so I scheduled a fairly simple job to run a couple of concealed HDMI cables from our Family Room to a nearby audio-video wiring closet. The technicians initially sent out were able to only partially complete the cable fishing job. When the company's owner learned that the tech crew had left without completing the job, he came out personally the following day to complete the job so we could get our house back together for Thanksgiving guests. He even took the time to set up and demonstrate some "smart" internet features of our home entertainment/TV system (originally installed by another company when the house was built) that we'd never used before. We were so impressed with the customer service attitude demonstrated by David, the company owner, that we contracted for an additional job to install an additional (ceiling-speakers )network audio zone in our home. That job was completed yesterday, and looks and sounds great. Highly recommended.

Review by in Katy, TX
I used Sound By Design to install an antenna on my roof. Scheduling was a bit of a hassle - I had confirmed an appointment for 16th October via HomeAdvisor, but eventually the installation ended up happening on 19th October. That being said, everything else went very well. I had offered to provide my own antenna, and they said they would send one antenna just in case. When the folks arrived for installation, they took a look at my antenna and said, "Yup, that will work", without trying to sell me their antenna. The installation was very thorough, the installers were extremely courteous, and they ensured that all my TVs were connected and showing the same number of channels (120) - they weren't expecting to get that many, so the end result was a surprise. Overall I am impressed with their work.

Review by in Spring, TX
There was a difference of opinion as to what constituted "an installation", but we were able to eventually work it out. I'm happy with the job the technicians did but a little disappointed with response from management when the system did not do what I was verbally promised it would do during the estimate. The lead technician worked with Comcast to resolve the problem and get the system working. Ask for a written contract before the job starts.

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.
