    Hired Kent to make some custom cabinet doors, then to refinish maple into white, and after this quality job we hired to do all of the kitchen cabinets. He and His crew are methodical and detailed and do a quality job at a fair price.

    5.0 Breanna C. Oceanside, CA

    We hired Kent and his team to refinish all cabinets and window trim in our newly purchased home. Kent was easy to get in touch with, quickly available to come to our home and provide a competitive quote, and very efficient in getting the work done. He made expert recommendations, and was always receptive to our input. Kent and his team were clean, organized, efficient, and very professional. I never once felt uncomfortable having his team in my home without us there. There is no question that Kent knows his stuff and truly takes pride in his work. I would highly recommend Kent Merrill Finishing to any of my friends, family, and neighbors!

    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.
