    These guys are very good at their job. He came and gave me an estimate the same day, and did the work the next day. I enjoyed talking with him and his team. He explained what he was doing step-by-step making it easy to understand what needed to be done and why. I was impressed and definitely recommend them for future work.

    We loved working with Jamie and his crew. They are all very personable and kind. They help you the very best they can and got the job done as quick as they could with the nasty weather and rocks and mud. Our yard is completely mud but they managed and I'm extremely happy with this company.

    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.
