Review by in Pine Lake, GA
Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
The estimate given before the job meant little since even after paying half, the sub-contractor asked for advances three times (total $180) on the remaining portion and then increased the final amount to cover those advances, leaving the final payment without any reduction for the money already advanced. The work itself was mediocre for the cost. Also, the attempt by the sub-contractor to cover this increase was transparent even though he told me I just did not understand. Sorry Charlie: I did understand that it was a scam and will not recommend these guys to anyone else. This is the third BAD experience I have had with companies associated with HomeAdvisor and I will not use this site ever again. Apparently, Homeadvisor is paid for their services by the contractors which means the contractor calls the tune when a bad review is submitted.
Response by Start to Finish Home Improvement, Inc.: Sorry for your bad experience with my company but we don't do sub standard work you was quoted a price added more work to the project that changed the difference in price cause initially it was just paint and you added tile and that changed the price I think overall your very unsatisfied with home advisor as quoted in your statement even before we came out.we just can't please everybody but we try.

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
Start to Finish Home Improvement stepped in to assist me right when I needed them. Drew was very professional. He delivered right as he promised. He was easy to reach. StFHI painted the interior of my home. He gave his advice as for additional suggestions on what would make the job even better. He provided me with a quote that was reasonable. If you are looking for a professional, excellent, reasonable individual to assist with your home improvement needs, STFHI is the right company to get the job done!

Project: Hire a Handyman
I like the people with this company but they are not skilled. Drew does not do the work, but subs it out to other people who are nice people but don't do good work. I've hesitated posting on HomeAdvisor because this contractor has been in my home and knows where I live. My initial commitment was for 5 projects and I have had to hire someone else to re-do all five projects.
Response by Start to Finish Home Improvement, Inc.: this is not true we made several attempts to straighten this out I worked on the job myself and people that work for me are skilled she even said at the end of the job that she would write a good review she was suffering from a illness and wasn't thinking straight even came back on a day we had set up and she was a no show I stand behind everything I do and really she was upset cause I wasn't there everyday but my workers were there. her comments are not true I don't hire subs only people that work for me.

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.
