Yes, however emails will start coming from, so make sure you check your junk/bulk email folders during the transition and add our email address to your "safe senders" list. Learn how.

10.  Will HomeAdvisor continue to screen service professionals before allowing them in their network?

Yes, HomeAdvisor still holds service professionals to the same standards that ServiceMagic did. All HomeAdvisor pros must pass the rigorous screening process, which includes criminal and financial background checks as well as confirmation of state-level trade licensing. We will continue to provide the most comprehensive screening process for home service professionals in the industry.

Of course! Everything HomeAdvisor offers to homeowners is completely free.

12.  Are the ratings and reviews on from customers that have actually used the service professionals?

Yes, we verify that our ratings and reviews come from customers who have actually used the service professional. There are no bogus reviews that have been planted by the service professional themselves or by their competitors. This way you can get the neighborly advice that you are looking for.

13.  Can I be assured that the service professionals that HomeAdvisor connects me with are still in business and available to do work when I need it?

We can guarantee that the service professionals are still in business and willing to take on new projects. We do encourage the service professionals to call you right away, but sometimes they can't get to you right away.

14.  Will HomeAdvisor still connect me with up to 4 service professionals?

Yes, we try to match you to 4 service professionals so that you can get multiple quotes so you get the best price. Depending on availability of service professionals who are qualified to complete the work you need done in your local area, there may be times when you are matched with fewer than 4 professionals.
