We started in this industry in 1969.

Larry was extremely responsive and great to work with. He was especially sensitive to and respectful of the occupant of the house during the addition/construction process. I have had multiple construction projects done in recent years, and my experience working with Larry was the best.

Project: Build a Garage
You can't do better than working with Larry Thornhill and Thornhill Construction!! He is always there to make sure everything goes right. I gave Larry a picture of what I wanted from a magazine. He worked with the engineer, reviewed the plans with me for changes, obtained the permit and took care of everything. He then moved on to renovation a small structure that was half finished. Two weeks later it was complete. All on time and as budgeted.

Project: Renovate or Repair a Home
I had expressed concern of the walking on my new metal roof based on what I was informed by the roofer and I did not see them taking the precaution nor was I informed of how they would be completed the job. He called the day of the job advising he would be late and arrived later than the timeframe stated. They completed the job by the next day and they worked very late to finish the job.

Review by in El Dorado Hills, CA
I was at my wit's end with this leaky chimney/fireplace and was ready to get rid of the whole thing. Larry was very responsive to my inquiry, came by within a couple of days, assessed the problem and suggested caulking the chimney cap where he'd seen possible breach. He went out of his way to get to Home Depot before the rain started and quickly/efficiently sealed the leak. I cannot express how thankful I am to have called him. He went above and beyond saving me countless of thousands of dollars. And on top of that didn't charge for the fix. Thanks Larry!

Review by
Project: Install or Replace Interior Doors
The professionals were excellent. I liked the owner, he had two men in his crew, one named matt and the other named Jesus and they did most of the work. The professionals worked quickly , and were very carful on not to soil the house. The professionals put cloths on the floor every time, before starting any work. The professionals turned a concept into a finished product. The professionals made our home into a much much better place. I will use them again in the future.

could go higher than 5 stars I would. I highly recommend Thornhill Construction for any upgrade/installation you may have for your home. I hired Larry's team to remodel my bathrooms, replace carpet in selected areas with laminate floors, replace my kitchen counters, and selected odds and ends throughout the house. Flooring * excellent selections * competitive pricing * flexible installation date * excellent installation, pays attention to detail, can provide custom adjustments based on room configuration and shape. Bathrooms * Pays attention to detail * Understands customer requirements and make choices accordingly * Clean installations, quality work * Excellent design skills * Competitive pricing General * Makes excellent suggestions when the customer is torn on design ideas * Great choices on fixtures * Will change scope of a job on the fly and be accurate on the changes * Team is very efficient in their project execution * Project team does an excellent job is cleaning up after themselves * Project team does a quality job in protecting areas that are not being worked on (carpet, window coverings, etc.) * Bill rates are reasonable and fair * Excellent job with the Kitchen Counter installation and choice of granite.

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.
