    Michael was the only installer I contacted who knew what to do in my situation. Brendan was amazing. Professional, clean, knowledgeable and so patient. It was not an easy project but they completed in and were amazing to work with. I cannot say enough good things about them.

    We recently bought a house and we felt it needed crown molding through out the whole house: It was a big job! (5,399 sq) We did our research and decided to give Michael Caraway a try. We are very happy with his work. He is professional, attentive, knowledgeable and he offers competitive prices! We plan to remodel our kitchen and bathroom and we will hire CARAWAY to do those projects as well. You wont go wrong when you hire Michael. We ve had family and friends over and they love his work. We love how the crown molding transformed our home! Thank you Michael!!

    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.
