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.

Review by in Conroe, TX
They quoted $150 to install a new TV antenna. They tried to charge $450 for the job, just install a TV antenna, no wiring, no extra job. Finally I spoke with the manager an they have adjusted to $300!!!! Never ever we will use this company again.
Response by Sound By Design: Hi, We went to check out your old antenna system, and the cost was $150 but because antenna system was bad, a new antenna was sold, as well as a charge for labor due to installation of new antenna system. That is the reason why what was quoted is different than what was charged.

Review by in Katy, TX
David installed a new HD TV antenna that I bought separately to replace a dish antenna. I was very well impressed with the work quality. David is very neat and professional. David in one hour installed the new antenna on the roof, used the old coax, and replaced the amplifier inside the panel. No work in the attic. Finally he searched the channels for each of the TV's. All done in about one hour.

David and his partner installed 2 surround sound systems in our main floor media room as well as the upstairs theater room. They spent 11 hours at our home making sure all systems worked in all rooms, installed the components and made it easy for us to navigate the remotes which is a big plus! We love the systems and the time they spent making all operations of the systems turn key for us to enjoy our two media rooms.

Project: Install, Upgrade or Repair Computer Network or Wiring - For Business
He said he could do the job then when he got here, said he doesn't set up computers. That was what I asked for; ended up hiring someone else.

They did not provide the services requested and I still had to pay. I explain twice so they understood my requirements and it was very clear. In my opinion they misrepresent their services and in most courts this would be considered fraud. The first appointment the guy Allen was 45 minutes late and after trying to wire my receiver for 2 1/2 hours I had to call the manufacture 800 # to tell him how to do it. Once he got the receiver set up all he wanted was out the door. In our agreement he agreed to hook up the components and show us how to operated the receiver. At this point he informed me he was just a sales guy and not the technician . He also demanded payment. He then said the owner would be back the following Friday and would finish the job. I took off from work to have the installation completed and 36 minutes after they were due to arrive they called and said they would not be coming. Two opportunities I still do not have it up and running and at the same time they are telling me what a favor they are doing foe me. They did call and say they would be coming for the third attemp , but at this point I made a decision to hire another company to complete the original job and I am out $255.00 dollars . In my opinion I wouldn't let these guys put batteries in a flash light.

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.
