    5.0 Elizabeth M. Frederick, MD

    Jim is a fabulous carpenter. He built a beautiful window seat for me. Not only lovely to look at, but very practical, adding loads of storage in my bedroom. Would definitely recommend.

    3.0 Nancy C. Walkersville, MD

    Jim did a good job on plaster. He was sloppy. He always showed up 30 to 45 minutes late. There was no communication. He did not advice me to cover those furnitures before the job begun. We got white powders all over. He also pushed the shoes and bottles into the rails. He should told me to clear them up. I had to clean the bottles again for refills. Shoes had white powders inside. The rails had reinstalled and a lot of gaps showing. I am not hired him again.

    5.0 Phil A. Westminster, MD

    Quick, friendly & priced fairly.

    5.0 Wayne A. Westminster, MD

    Jim did quality work per county codes and for a reasonable price. Work was completed in a reasonable time. Well pleased with the final results.

    5.0 Fredrick S. Ellicott City, MD

    Jim is an exemplar of a home contracting 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.
