5.0 Yvonne Y. Null, WI

Jake scheduled us immediately. He found a very creative and a very inexpensive solution to our garage door window problem. He also found a problem that we were not aware of and fixed it. He is honest, friendly, and very creative.

5.0 Rosemary B. Whitefish Bay, WI

Jake is an amazing individual. His skills are impeccable. I will definitely hire him again for home repairs. Thanks, Jake. My humble abode has never looked so good!!!

5.0 Julia K. Milwaukee, WI

Jake is a very unique individual this said in the most complimentary way. He is an excellent communicator, timely, clean, smart, and efficient. I love that he texts when he will arrive and if running slightly behind he's texting an eta. He's extremely resourceful and if he doesn't have the answer to the problem he will find it. My husband and I were so impressed with his approach and the results that I've been screaming his name from the rooftops. It's rare to find someone of Jake's caliber but if you can get him to work for you, you are blessed and fortunate. Let me note, if he's not happy with his work or you're not, he will do everything in his power to make it right. Don't hesitate to call him, he's fabulous! I wish we could take him to Texas with us!

5.0 Janine B. Glendale, WI

Jake is in a category on his own based on my experience over the many years and homes Iâ ve done work to. He has a rare combination of outstanding communication skills, transparent about scope, cost upfront and as he goes, various skills (drywall, carpentry, tile and more) and what he does he does with a perfectionist mindset. He wants to be as proud and happy of his work as the customer is. In addition he is open to and likes special, collaborative and creative projects. I feel I found a professional partner in beautifying my home. As a result he sometimes books quite far out. That said itâ s worth asking because he might be able to fit in a smaller job sooner.

5.0 Michelle O. Milwaukee, WI

Jake did a great job. He was very professional and showed up when he said he would. He explained what he was going to do and how long it would take. I will definitely hire him again.

5.0 Julian J. Milwaukee, WI

I just recently have Jake do a home project for me. He did an excellent job. He gave me a great quote, showed up on time, great communication. I plan to hire him for future projects.

5.0 Mike K. Milwaukee, WI

Great job and done in a timely manner. Jake offered the flexibility that I appreciate because some things I can do myself. Always on time and communicated very effectively through out the project.

5.0 Mike K. Milwaukee, WI

Great workmanship at a reasonable price. I will hire him again.

5.0 Gretchen V. Whitefish Bay, WI

Jake did fantastic work completing several small projects around my home that I'd let go unfinished for too long. Now that I've found a reliable and professional handyman, I won't make the same mistake again. Any projects that come up in the future, I know whom to call to get them taken care of quickly but with a keen eye for detail. I would highly recommend JakeWorks to anyone looking for a handyman.

5.0 Gretchen V. Whitefish Bay, WI

A+ work and professionalism. Jake was a pleasure to work with and the finished product is outstanding. I will definitely use JakeWorks in the future and will recommend the company to my family and friends.

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
