Nice family business. Came the next day, cleaned dryer vent and verified that the booster fan on the roof was working. No mess left behind.

Project: Install a Brick or Stone Fireplace (Gas)
This provider seemed good at first, came over right away for quote, scheduled appointment for work within a reasonable time. He was not reliable after the first two days of the project to stone in an existing fireplace, replace sheetrock and reinstall a mantle. Project was started in November as a 2 day project, turned out to be several more days needed. Not completed yet, now mid-January. After first two days, owner told me he wasn't going to come back until northern California got hard rain when he would be unable to work for his clients with outside jobs like stone fences or chimneys. Would not schedule additional work days, unless big storm fore-casted for next day. What kind of professional does that? Will find a professional contractor to finish this job. Maybe United Chimney is good with short, outside jobs, such as cleaning and inspecting a chimney, but think twice about anything else. Am very disappointed.

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.
