Review by in Providence, RI
Project: Repair Drywall
I would recommend Mr. DeFreitas. He was prompt in contacting me, fair in his quote, and he did high quality work. He patched a larger than expected hole in my ceiling due to water damage. He made a stressful situation easy to deal with. He was contentious and polite. He showed up on time and was diligent about getting it right. I appreciated he spent the time putting on the finishing touches and cleaning up after the job. He was thorough in walking me through the project. Explaining what he was doing and why.

Review by in Woonsocket, RI
Project: Install Drywall
Steve and his crew did an outstanding job of installing 17 sheets of wallboard and custom plastering a ceiling! He was quick with his estimate and timely starting the job. He was on the job when he said he would be (which I find quite extraordinary for most small contractors) and stayed on the job all day, every day (9-5) until the job was finished and complete to my satisfaction. He is first, and ONLY contractor I've hired in the last 30 years who did not need to leave the job 3 to 4 times each day to go to Lowe's or Home Depot to get supplies he "forgot" or needed for the job! He obviously planned ahead, new what he would need and came fully prepared for the job. The jobsite was cleaned up each day and the jobsite was protected from damage, again a far cry from most other contractors who leave their mess for you to clean and do not demonstrate much care for your property. Steve far exceeded my expectations and I would recommend him without reservation. (my only minor complaint, and this may be characteristic of all plasterers is that a final sanding was not done of the taping application, but as I said, this may be characteristic of the profession, so I did not let this impact my rating)

Review by in Warwick, RI
Project: Install Plaster
Steven is an excellent contractor and a true professional. He was always on time and the work was absolutely top-notch. He did everything he said he would and always kept us in the loop, letting us know what was happening and when. Steven even went out of his way to do a little extra caulking for no additional cost. He hires out other tradesmen who are also exceptional and know their trades well. Steven and his workers were always polite and highly respectful. I'll hire Steven in a heartbeat if I need any more work done. A true gem in a sea of ersatz contractors!

Project: Repair Plaster
Steve did an excellent job with drywall plaster repair, and textured ceiling repair - after I had major water damage in my home. He takes pride in his work, and it showed. It was great to work with him and his associates who worked quickly and effectively. Steve is fair priced and asked after every aspect of the job if I was happy with his work and if he needed to make any changes! I would highly recommend using Steve.

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.
