Project: Hire a Handyman
A fantastic customer experience from quote to completion. Honest, hard working, and know to stop and read installation instructions when it's important. Their miter-joints are tight, recommendations/ideas are sound, and their use of electronic back-end business services makes scheduling/planning a breeze. I've already requested a quote for a second handyman job, and so obviously will be bringing them back.

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
I think they showed up at 6:30pm and stayed till almost midnight to paint the living room and kitchen...Came back the next day to finish up only because the two cans of paint that were the same color, for some reason didnt match so they had to redo part of the job! No extra charge...Now thats Customer Service for you. I am very happy and very Impressed. If you hate to paint and you need a pro, this is the way to go.. Great job! Reasonable price. Attention to detail. friendly and they actually show up to get the job done... I was in a pinch and had a deadline. Thanks Melanie, Thanks Bret

Even after having a personal emergency, Handy Wolfe showed up to fix a minor issue in our home. Fantastic customer service! I will use them again.

Review by in Apex, NC
We were having trouble finding someone to replace our rotted screen porch posts. We'd hired someone, but he decided it was beyond his capability once he started to work. I called Melanie that morning and she came out that afternoon to look things over. The work was scheduled and completed in a timely manner. I really like their attention to detail and their emphasis upon doing things RIGHT! Another plus is that the same person who gives you the estimate does the actual work. My only complaint is that this job cost more than I thought it would (what doesn't?), but I'd much rather have it done right than cheaply.

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.
