5.0 Dale P. Hayward, CA

John seems to love his work and takes pride in the results.

5.0 Kirsten G. Santa Cruz, CA

Highest recommendation for John! He brought the stained, scuffed 80-year-old oak floors in our home back to beautiful life, including extensive patch work and fiddly stairs. He is a consummate professional down to all the details, and was flexible and understanding in a challenging situation with multiple contractors. He is reliable and a good communicator, and made a very competitive bid too. Truly a gem!

5.0 Larry C. Sunnyvale, CA

John's craftsmanship and professionalism are superb. He works by himself with emphasis on "works". I'm not sure I've met another pro in any field who works as hard as he does. He shows up on time (early!) and more often than not, stays all day. He is personable and very easy to get along with. In fact we were a bit sad to see the job finished because we enjoyed having him around. John installed Luxury Vinyl Tile Planks. trim, and new baseboard throughout our entire house and it looks fabulous. His price was in line with other comparable pros in the field and worth every penny and then some.

5.0 Janet P. Palo Alto, CA

John was so professional, and the floor looks stunning. Working alone, he finished the entire job, which involved a large kitchen and adjoining dining room, in just three days. The prices from other contractors were comparable. But some did not show up or return calls when they said they would. That's why we went with John. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

J. Prescott Flooring did an excellent and timely stall on my living room. I have also personally seen other examples of his more customized hardwood installations that are very beautiful. I highly recommend his services!

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.
