Review by Dale S. in Wrightsville Beach, NC
Project: Find a Home Maintenance Contract or Warranty Program
I have used Mr. Stanley in the past on smaller projects with decent results. He was a great guy, treated me fairly in the past so I asked him if he wanted or had the ability to attempt a complete interior remodel of a small 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath townhouse of about 1900 square feet, on Wrightsville Beach, NC. Demolish the kitchen counters, remove cabinets, install all new appliances, bathrooms, cabinets, remove carpet and install floating hardwood floors, new fixtures, paint complete inside, some carpentry work etc etc. He jumped on it but after just the majority of the painting, most fixtures had been hung and the hardwood floors still not completed the 2 draws totaled $10,000 which was MUCH MORE then I should have paid him. He wanted $5000 more to continue and said if I didn't pay him He would quit!!! I said no more money, so he just walked off the job, left a huge mess, would not return my keys and acted just like a 2 year old!!! I asked him over and over for the invoices which he could not produce and come to find out he was charging me by the hour!!! Very, very disappointing because I liked Mr. Stanley. I called a friend of mine who is a contractor in Raleigh who has been at my place. H told me Mr. Stanley didn't do $7000 worth of work and the quality is simply terrible!!! I would be leary of Mr. Stanley on any kind of project he can't handle himself!!! What I asked him to do was more than he could handle but instead of admitting it, he just stayed around and tried to bill me for being there!!! No love loss between us!!!
Response by Ways Building and Maintenance Service: We my crew of three,tore out the whole house of carpet, hauling it away also. Replace with vinyl plank three bedroom and living room with two hallways and a mud room as he did not buy the brand I asked for. instead a cheaper quality that I would not stand behind. so in the middle of that we take it back up and replace with what I suggested the first place. painted the whole house. sanded the stairs.removed all fixtures in three bathrooms and wall paper. replacement of all ceiling fans and light fixtures. hauling away all debris. then refused to pay. I have many customers that are repeat customer. Mr. Dale S. is a con artist and cheap scape.

Review by in Lucama, NC
Project: Repair Interior or Exterior Doors
Mr. Wade of Ways Building and Maintenance Service called me right away and scheduled an appointment. He showed up early and completed the project within an hour. I would recommend him to anyone and I'm going to use him again for some other projects I plan on having done.

Project: Hire a Handyman- For Business
Had several people promise to do this and never show up. He scheduled a time. Showed up on time. Did the work. Explained any issues (that were created before him). And gave me a great finished product. Will definitely hire him again and again.

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.
