I liked the professionalism including the salesman, owners and the work crew. Flexible and willing to collaborate to create the right solution. Did have the time to research the approach and felt comfortable with the solution and workmanship. The office staff took some time to respond, but we eventually got everything to work out

Review by in Naperville, IL
Everything went well during the estimate. I had to wait several weeks for the estimate and again for the actual work to begin. When the workman showed up he did nothing but cut away two small sections of drywall then said he could do none of the work because one crack needed to be fixed from the outside and I needed to move a sink and workbench, none of which had been discussed in the first meeting. What followed was a lot of “we want to make this right” and “we’ll call you by the end of the day” that never happened. After me having to contact them repeatedly they finally gave me a work date that was two months later than the original appointment. I gave up and went with someone else, who was able to take care of the job in a timely way.

Review by in Braidwood, IL
I was really pleased with the guys that did the work on my crawl space, they explained things very thoroughly. What they fixed did fix the problem with the center beam in the house, but did not fix the wall/floor separation of the laundry/furnace/utility room. I was kind of bummed that the 5500.00 we spent didn’t fix the problem. When the guys explained why it didn’t fix the problem and what needed to be done I felt better about the extra 1100.00 expense. Both times they came out they were very friendly and explained exactly what they were doing and seeing the photos of the work they were doing was very helpful seeing what they were doing. You have a great group of guys working for you from the sales guys to the installation techs.

I worked with Austin Werner at Real Seal to get some basement sump pump work done. He came out initially and gave me a quote and different options for my basement sump pump. He was very knowledgeable and gave pros and cons of different options. The quote was priced very fairly. They were able to get us on the schedule quickly. On the day off, the Real Seal technician called me the morning to let me know what time they would be here. The job was done very professionally and they answered all my questions. They cleaned up after the install. Highly recommended.

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.
