5.0 Simon L. Los Gatos, CA

Walter was amazing! Walter was recommended by Angi for a complex problem that needed to be addressed with a matter of urgency. Walter was responsive, professional, turned up when he said he was going to (which is a rare quality nowadays) and his costs were competitive. I will certainly be using Walter again for future projects.

Great work and communication

5.0 Janice M. Boulder Creek, CA

I would not hesitate to use his services again.

4.5 Cathy R. Santa Cruz, CA

Walt and his partner did a great quality job! If the project is more than he expected he reviewed it with me and we discussed it. He is more than fair with his prices.

5.0 David A. Watsonville, CA

Walter was friendly, professional and easy to work with. He took a few extra steps to make sure the job was done right. He fixed a soft spot on our kitchen floor, created a structure underneath the kitchen floor to stabilize it and replaced our floor with new laminate flooring. We hope to hire him again for future projects.

I told Walter what their job was before he came out. He wanted to come out and bid anyway. I said he could also bid on doing all the bathroom as well but still, I wanted the subfloor fixed first. Walter got back to me with his bid but it seemed he did not know how to get the right bathtub/shower as he does mainly carpentry. He also did not want me at the job as that is a coordination issue it seems for him. I told him lets just do the subfloor as we originally agreed on. He basically acted like it was too small of a job for him to do. Please do not meet this guy he is not concerned with wasting your time at all. He does not prefer you at the job and even if he agrees on something upfront, he does not care about honoring that agreement.

5.0 Barbara H. Soquel, CA

Walter and his team did an excellent job on our deck, and we were impressed with his friendly and helpful approach to the work. They completed the job in just two days matching the new to the old. We would not hesitate to hire him again.

HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post information about themselves and their business on their profile. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information representations set forth in those profiles as they are self-reported by the Service 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.
