Gilbert showed up on time and did the work as promised. The site was cleaned every day and the crew was polite and professional. Work was finished on time and professionally completed. His prices were competitive.

The estimate process was by far the best of any company we engaged with, precise and detailed for each unit. The work was done ahead of schedule and to a high standard. We will use them going forward.

Gilbert was honest and his crews were excellent. It did take longer than normal to get the job started but that was a result of Covid-19 as suppy chain was interrupted and building materials were in scare supply for all contractors. His crew kept the yard picked up every day and were extremely helpful in answering our questions and keeping us informed.

Gilbert, Jamie, Butch and Anthony all did work for me....repainting my brick home, laying vinyl floors throughout, interior painting, replacing gutters, window insulation, roofing and siding of an unattached shed, electrical rewiring, hanging exterior door, replaced rotted utility floor, and a myriad of small handyman tasks like replacing a sink, garbage disposal and hoses to my ice maker. I would definitely use these gentleman again. Gilbert is the owner, and is old school in that he wants to leave a happy customer behind. Butch seems to be the electrical guy. Anthony is the carrying and fetching helper. Jamie seems to be an all around general maintenance/builder/construction guy. Together, they make a great crew and have been able to successfully tackle all the jobs I’ve had for them.

They replaced doors and siding on our house. I and my neighbors are all very satisfied with the craftsmanship of the job. The crew was very professional and respectful. Kept us aware of what they were doing and always on time. I would and have been recommended to my neighbors. Job well done and very reasonable. Jamie and John are the best.

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.
