Review by in Mount Airy, MD
Project: Repair Drywall
For the initial estimate, John and I exchanged texts, emails and photos. He came to my house to describe the work and possible start dates. The work started as planned on the day it was scheduled and was completed in one day. The worker was very meticulous and protected the floors and area prior to beginning any work. The finished product was better than expected and not visible after painting. Great work and I am expecting to use The Masters Finish for another project this spring.

Review by in Gaithersburg, MD
Project: Repair Drywall
I am happy with the pricing and timing of the drywall repair. When they cut out a portion of the water damaged drywall and saw some additional damage, the additional pricing to fix all of the drywall was very reasonable. They hung plastic and put down floor coverings to keep the dust to a minimum. I'm very happy. I usually would have just done the drywall repair myself, but decided to hire a pro this time. I'll hire them again if the need arises.

Project: Repair Drywall
John Cobb and his assistant, John, completed a third floor bedroom in quick time. The job was difficult due to it was walls and ceiling, as well as, angled ceilings. The finished job is beautiful and I will definitely hire John back for additional work!

Owner John Cobb analyzed the repair issue and took his time to correctly fix the problem. I highly recommend him and am using him and his company for an additional project.

Review by in Montgomery Village, MD
Project: Repair Drywall
We were very please with the completed work. The repaired ceilings look amazing and despite the sanding, there was very little residual dust . John was very accommodating with regard to the schedule. He also took pictures to document the state of ceiling before covering with new wallboards. On top of the excellent work, both Johns were extremely nice and very professional.

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.
