Review by in Crown Point, IN
Jack and Glenn did an excellent job repairing a cracked bed frame, drawer repairs, and touch up to the wood to my bedroom set. The job took a little longer than anticipated, but they were patient and made sure the job was done right. Very pleased with their work.

Review by in Evergreen Park, IL
THANK YOU, JACK. My chaise is better than new! My chaise which was part of my sectional was purchased defective with inferior materials. I tried to get the company with whom I purchased the chaise from to fix the problem but to no avail. I found Jack at Whiting Furniture on Home Advisor. I am very happy with the workmanship and Jack's knowledge of repairing furniture. I will be using Jack in the future if ever the need arises. Thank You again, Jack.

Jack was Curtis and helpful. He was able to fix the problem in a short time. I am very happy with his service. He also suggested that if I need extra cushioning in the seat or lower back of the chair that they can do it. All in all I was very pleased whit his work and friendlynes. Sandy D

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.
