Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because I get great satisfaction from taking something that is old, wornout, weathered and broken and making it look better than new.

We started in this industry in 2005.

We describe our business as Well established


In everything I have ever done I have been accused of being a "PERFECTIONIST"

Project: Install or Replace Blinds or Shades
Michael showed up exactly on time, answered my emails immediately, and did a great job of installing my vertical blinds. He is very personable and entertaining! We had a terrific chat. I would recommend him to my friends and certainly I would hire him again.

Project: Hire a Handyman
Mr. Callahan IS "The Perfectionist." There is nothing he cannot do. He has an artist's attention to detail. Mike fixed things we thought were un-fixable which saved us hundreds of dollars. His keen eye picked up things that could have become future problems and fixed them. He is a kind, warm, and trustworthy person who my children called "Uncle Mike." We have highly recommended him to family, friends, and neighbors.

Project: Hire a Handyman
What a great find. Mike came to our home over a year ago to start on a few small projects which graduated into larger projects and eventually painting the outside of our home. His skill set is wide and he understands how most things need to work in the average home. He has helped not only in fixing up our home but also in helping organize and offer suggestions in helping things just work better. An honest and competent vendor is hard to find, but you will have both in Mike Callahan, the Perfectionist.

Review by in Denville, NJ
Project: Hire a Handyman
Mike was an angel disguised as a handyman. There is not a task he couldn't do to "perfection". He is organized, hardworking, educated and experienced. His enthusiasm and passion for getting the job done right, is most admirable, honest and fun to be around. I highly recommend him for any job, big or small..painting, repairing, plumbing,carpentry,electronics. anything and everything...the whole experience was a gift. So great to have someone you can count on. His phone number stays on the speed dial...CJG - Denville,NJ

Review by in Maplewood, NJ
Project: Hire a Handyman
Mike arrived and started working right away on some small repairs: kitchen counter needed to be reinforced and a couple of drawers repaired. He did an excellent job and when we couldn't find the right part for a certain repair, he volunteered to try to find the part himself. Many professionals turned me down because they don't want to work unless you are installing a whole new kitchen. It was a pleasure to find someone who takes pride in his work and is willing to do small projects.

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.
