Project: Install or Repair Tile
The job looks like it did before then they did any work, the tiles are uneven, they are popping up, the glue is coming up, is showing between the tiles
Response by The Repairman: We apologize for the adhesive manufacturer as it was defective. We were working with the manufacturer to replace the adhesive and then return to take care of her concern until the customer chose to post this rating. If you will review our 25 most recent ratings 80% of them are 4 stars or higher with 18 of them being a perfect 5 stars. If you have any questions whatsoever please call. The owner answers the phone.

Tim, the technician was professional and polite. He did a great job communicating what he was doing and why. Steve, the owner was helpful on the phone and I will be hiring them again soon!

Project: Repair Drywall
Quick scheduling and Steve/owner was very nice, however, the quality of the drywall work was subpar at best and a project that was quoted for 1.5 days was way underestimated. Ultimately, I ended up with a drywall project half finished. Was told they could get someone out in 2.5 weeks to finish the project. I could not wait that long. Not to mention an $800 project then turned into a $1,600+ project if they would have come back to finish it. Not happy.
Response by The Repairman: We apologize to Kristi for what she considers a "subpar" drywall job! This is not the type of review we have received as attested to by the previous 13 reviews and ratings - ALL 5's except two being a 4.5! (: (NOTE: Approximately 30% of our work is drywall related.) When it came to the amount of time to perform the work, Kristi told us that all the drywall would be hung (which it wasn't) by the time we got there by her relatives whom she said had hung drywall in the past. When my tech arrived the drywall that was hung was not aligned in such a way that the taping and rough coat could be installed in as efficient time as had a professional like us installed it. Had it been installed properly we could have finished the whole job in the allotted time. When the homeowner called to set up the additional time she conveyed that she was satisfied with the work and the tech who was performing the work. When Kristi asked to schedule the additional time to finish her drywall she is correct in stating that it would be "2.5 weeks" before we could return. It is because we are committed to the schedule preset for our approximate 1,500 customers and those who call us for the first time as attested to by many of the other previous ratings to this one. Kristi stated she would probably have her relatives finish the drywall because she couldn't wait that long. When I, the owner, saw this rating I was quite surprised by it based upon our conversation. Again, I apologize to Kristi for her not being completely satisfied! We hope to have the opportunity to serve her someday again and if we do I am willing to provide her a discount. --- Sincerely, The Repairman Owner.

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.
