Work was quick and professional. Contractor took great effort to work around the rain. Only complaint is that a few flowers around the house were damaged.

Review by in Raleigh, NC
John and his crew did a wonderful job on our home and clearly laid out the daily project plan/timeline and cleaned up afterwards. The crew installed a new roof, filled in 2 skylights, painted the exterior trim, power-washed the house and deck, replaced one set of damaged gutters and carpentry work around the house in areas damaged by water. The price was great and the service was even better. I would definitely use Universal Contracting again and would highly recommend them to others.

John and his crew provided top notch service and craftsmanship. They were prompt and professional and cleaned up each day before leaving. I would recommend Universal Contracting for any roof, siding or exterior painting project. Another happy customer!

Workers showed up promptly, they were tidy and cleaned up when complete. Except for the new roof, you could not tell anyone had been there! Very happy with the final product.

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.
