5.0 Cindy H. Oceanside, CA

Derek did a fantastic job. He is professional and courteous. I am going to use him again and would highly recommend him.

5.0 Mike S. Carlsbad, CA

Friendly, hard working, knew what he was doing

5.0 Tony E. Carlsbad, CA

Derek is a true professional at what he does. His workmanship and knowledge speaks for itself with his end product.

5.0 Matthew K. Escondido, CA

Derek was extremely professional, courteous, and KNOWS HIS STUFF. He brought up potential problems with our plan and we worked it out so we could avoid them. Will absolutely use him on our next trim/door project

5.0 Kellen K. Carlsbad, CA

Extremely knowledgable, went above and beyond to make sure the damaged door/frame were in perfect alignment by the time he was finished. I was anticipating a two week time frame, but he was at my doorstep within an hour with everything in hand. Cleaned up all the wood pieces as well! Definitely worth every penny.

5.0 Laurence J. Vista, CA

The job was done with precision; you can't even see where the new pieces of lumber were put in. And when removal of the damaged wood revealed the problem extended beyond that piece, he replaced that too, yet still charged only the original amount.

5.0 Charles P. Oceanside, CA

Excellent carpenter and craftsman. Took on a dozen assorted repairs from replacing several exterior doors, and closet doors, termite damage, removal of wraught iron bars, exterior trim. Will keep his card in my roladex for future jobs.

5.0 Cindy O. Carlsbad, CA

We were extremely happy with Derek. He is a master craftsman. Prompt, meticulous, a top professional. We are so happy with his work we will be calling him again for another project. Itâ s very difficult to find a highly skilled and qualified person in the construction field. My husband is a retired contractor and when he says another craftsman is extremely good that is the highest of compliments.. All 5 stars for Derek!

5.0 Jeffrey S. San Marcos, CA

Derek showed up on time and date that had been set and repaired exterior wood trim. The trim repair looks great.

5.0 Jim P. San Diego, CA

High quality professional work. Replaced rotten facia and trim. Removed and replaced two old windows with nice Milgard Trinsic .

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.
