    Their fireplace inspection consisted of someone looking at my fireplace and flue with a flashlight getting on my single story home and looking at the cap. all total a 15 min job and charging $199.00 what a ripe off. This was the most unprofessional and over priced service I have ever received.

    First time using HomeAdvisor, I was matched with Chimney Cricket and another company that never returned my inquiry. Chimney Cricket came out and gave me a quote; the guy asked if I wanted the stucco work included in the quote, to which I said no, that I would do it myself. The job was to brick up a front window about halfway, and I later added installing the window to the quote. I gave them a 50% deposit of the project on March 18th, and then it took until 5/21 for the permit to be approved. The officer manager informed me that it was because their architect used the wrong form. To be fair, the effects of COVID may have played a role in this delay as well. They finally came out to do the brickwork, which was installed without a hitch. The mason that did the work did a great job and was very friendly, I believe his name was Bob. Another week or so later they came back to install the window, and broke two pieces off of it. One of the pieces were replaced immediately, and I was told they would inform the office about the other part when they got back to the office that day. Two weeks went by and I never heard anything from them. When I reached out, they said they were not aware of the broken part, and they would look into it. This is when I asked when the final inspection would be scheduled; to which they told me could not be completed until the finishing work (stucco, plaster, and paint) was done. This was never communicated to me and caused me to drop other projects I was working on in the house to complete this. It took over a month and a half for the company to get the replacement part, and admitted that they kept forgetting to follow up on it. Final inspection was finally scheduled for early September, and the inspector was going to fail it because they did not put enough tap cons in the window. Luckily, I had some on hand and put them in to pass inspection. My invoice was paid in full on September 9th, and I am still waiting for them to release the lien. They are now telling me (on Sept. 21st) that they will sign the lien release, but I am responsible to file it myself by e-mailing a copy of it to the courthouse, which if it were that simple, why could not they do that? The office manager then told me that lien release is not included in the quote they gave me (wtf?). I informed the office manager that you canot file a copy of the document via e-mail, that the original copy is required, which I had verified with the courthouse that morning.

    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)
