Needs a 12 step mtg's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 9/5/18 3:27 AM
I’m not sure why so many reviewers are such idiots- if you want to review the app, you do it here. To review the contractor you hired *from* the app, do it from that person’s/ company’s page *in* the app... it’s not HomeAdvisor calling you to check on the service, it’s the company you contracted with! It’s not HomeAdvisor setting the time of service, or calling to remind you, IT’S THE COMPANY YOU HIRED!!!! Seriously, how do you people make it thru the day without an ounce of intelligence or common sense? The app seems to work well so far, have several projects I’m trying to contract out, & HomeAdvisor helps me keep everything straight in my head, from which companies are contacting me for which project. I’d like it if I could delete companies I don’t hire, easily add a company to my contacts from the app, & to be able to add appts to calendar from the app. Otherwise, does what it should, WHICH IS TO CONNECT ME TO A CONTRACTOR OR COMPANY that can complete jobs around the house, & to collect reviews from others, about those companies, & list them so I can do research before inviting ppl i don’t know into my home.
Dafonz81's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 9/5/18 3:17 AM
I don’t know where to start but I hired one of there top rated pros just to find out that the Pro was a true scammer/conartist, who ripped me off for $7k for a job that HomeAdvisor recommended them for and this person had good reviews on HomeAdvisor... they where verified. Come to find out they where under qualified for the job and ruined my property. It is going to cost me over $12k to fix the damage left behind by there “TOP RATED PRO” who after the fact shame on me I googled and they have been ripping people off all over. Trust me read the others on here stay away... oh and the must of sold my number because I get 15 to 20 calls a day from all over after I setup this app...

I would love to give a better review as that means Home Advisor works well vetting contractors. My success rate is about 25% due to companies that don’t service the area that Home Advisor states they do service, quotes from companies that are wildly different and finally companies that just never show up for an estimate or the actual work.

tool-time man's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 9/28/18 4:51 PM
After working with HA for nearly 25 years in an array of successful home remodels and additions, I unfortunately stumbled onto a highly recommended HA contractor for a bath remodel which proved to be our worst nightmare. Beginning from day one where the contractor failed to show up without even a call, our 5-week max project turned into a 13- week remodel debacle covering all of 60-sq ft. Worst yet, the 3 calls I placed to my HA rep in Denver were never returned and the face to face meeting I had with our contractor after dealing with just 10 days of shear turmoil, I resigned myself to s****** it up and simply plowing thru whatever else lay ahead. Only 2 positive outcomes of the project - a second ‘independent sub’ from the contractor was brought in after 8 weeks to try and salvage/save our remodel (which he fulfilled with flying colors) and the project finally was completed. May 29 - Sept 14; an entire summers’ worth of frustration, turmoil and complete miscommunication - sorry HA, but after this mess, I may begin looking elsewhere for future references and help.

I usually don’t leave bad reviews but I am extremely unhappy. I downloaded this app and didn’t even book a service, just browsed, and all of a sudden I am getting calls and emails left and right trying to get me to book their services. I haven’t even used the app, I deleted it, and now my email is flooded with advertisements for home repair stuff. I absolutely hate junk mail and cold calls and I get them constantly now. Not cool!

Rabbits & cats's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 9/2/18 4:45 PM
I signed up for HomeAdvisor and used the app to look up some providers for lawn maintenance. I specifically said that all I was doing was planning and budgeting, and that I was not looking to be contacted yet. Within 24 hours of doing this, I received 5 phone calls from a provider regarding the service, and then the provider SHOWED UP AT MY HOUSE and knocked on the door. When I didn’t answer (I am 9 months pregnant and very uncomfortable), he knocked again every few minutes until I finally opened the door in my pajamas and said it wasn’t a good time. I get that this man is trying to run a small business and support his family, but by signing up for this app and simply looking up providers, I did not expect to be harassed. I obviously should have read the terms and conditions more closely. Secondly, there is no straightforward way to close your account. I had to LiveChat with a customer service rep to request my account be closed... he said that the relevant team would be alerted and “initiate” the closing of my account. What the heck? Just close my account. I don’t want to be harassed any longer.
free2worship's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 9/2/18 3:26 AM
This app is a lose-lose. It’s a lose for the consumer who gets random contractors calling you, many of whom are not even qualified to do the work you want done. It’s a lose for the contractors because they get charged for referrals even if people are just playing with the app and your name comes up for their test/fake job. Here’s a better solution if someone wants to make an app that offers an honest and good service — (1) Let the consumer enter the job details. Then let the consumer see a list of legitimate nearby companies that can do the job and let the consumer choose which three to receive quotes from. (2) The app can then send the request for a quote to the three companies but before charging the company a referral fee, let the companies review the job details and respond if this is a job they can do and want to give a quote for. If so they pay a referral fee, but if not they don’t. (3) If only one company gives a quote, the consumer gets notified to choose 2 more contractors. (4) Let consumers choose how they prefer to be contacted by contractors, by a call, text, or email.
Dchrisman's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 9/2/18 2:43 AM
This is how they treat contractors—They spam the internet with your name n their number. Then sell that lead ... who is asking for you anyways ... as a direct lead to you. Then when u stop buying leads. They dont go take down all the places with ur name and their number. Then they sell those leads to ur competition. So ... ur screwed.

chorton1's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 8/31/18 1:08 AM
After entering my information for a bathroom remodel quote, I was barraged with 10 to 20 phone calls per day for the next several days. This app claims they will match you with a few local pros but really they give your contact info to a bunch of call centers. I got calls from at least eight companies and they called as late as 8 PM. The same number would call three or four times per day. The same company would call from different numbers. It was terrible. I would never use one of their recommended contractors just on principle! Very misleading and very disappointed with this app.

P&PLU83's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 8/30/18 6:09 PM
The Repairman was a good worker. When he arrived he Went right to the work required. He replaced five 4 by 4 Posts this included taking the fence off of the existing Posts and removing the existing posts and concrete. He dug out the holes of any debris. He then put the new posts in and put the appropriate amount of concrete in and aligned and plumed them. Total time of labor 4 hrs. He came at 8:00am and left at 12:00 noon. Concrete set for 24 hrs. The next day he reinstalled the fence prices with my help and after that he cleaned up the tools and debris, witch took about approximately two hrs. He gave me a quote the day before of 450.00$. Then when I asked him the amount I owed him he said 570 some dollars. Seemed a little high for 6 hrs labor and material costs.

I have used Home Advisor before with success but this time has been a nightmare!! I looked to Home Advisor for roofers and without responding to their suggestions, was inundated with non stop calls, from morn to night and every yah hoo with a pickup truck at my home— uninvited!! It has seemed endless— some pretend that I called and scheduled them and others were, “ in the neighborhood.” Business cards at my door and in my mailbox, some from the same roofer- different day!! All and I do mean all, wanted to know my insurance carrier and if I had already filed a claim. I eliminated all of these roofers immediately and decided to go by neighbor and family recommendations instead.

Only one “Pro” was recommended for home theater repair. I filled out all the information, sent the email, and never heard anything. Then I called the contact telephone number twice and left messages both times. No return call. About a week later a nice lady from Home Advisors called and asked if I was happy with my “Pro”. I informed her that my “Pro” was no Pro and had never responded to my job. And wondered why there was only one Pro in Orange County for such a common problem. The lady said she was sorry and would look into it and call me right back. That was a week ago and no return call. This is a big fat nothing.

Very nice and polite, inconsistent on showing up on time. I opted to purchase my own paint and after they painted two rooms told me it was not good paint .which being professionals should of recognize after painting 1/2 of wall. I had to do most of prep,(DO NOT)leave a nail, screw, face plate, shelves etc. they will paint over or simply just around it. They were very helpful moving furniture. The clean up for me was small but a lot he paints with free hand and the little splattered dots of paint every where. ! They also put in a plank floor which was awesome!!!! I would hire them again overall they did a 90 percent great job and would recommend them. I’m also perfectionist......!

Dizzydecorator's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 8/23/18 9:13 AM
I am a 1st time user of Home Advisor & had no previous experience or hearsay from friends-just a happy accident I found them. After reading reviews, I choose Ali Shadian as a handyman, because he had all 5 star reviews. (Many reviews). He called me the next morning & gave me recent people he had worked for, & I called them & they were all exceedingly happy with his work. He stopped by that day & I went over a list of items needed doing. I really liked him & he seemed easy going & capable of doing the job. I decided to have him do one task first, to see how he worked out. We have solid core, paneled, interior doors, that had been chipped & scratched & needed repairing & painting. He had professional equipment & did an excellent job! He had a electric sander & professional paint sprayer . Next he redid my mailbox on the street. Here he did creative & excellent work. He showed up on time & had great work habits: cleaned up after he was done, & was eager to do a top job. I plan on having him do other jobs for me. Home advisor called me every day to see how things were going. I was surprised on how well they follow up, to be sure the client is happy with the work being done. All in all, a very excellent experience.

Back in the day when home advisor first got started it actually worked. I live in a very populated metropolitan area and have tried to get quotes for three different projects in the past three months: nothing, no responses at all from any “pros”. In a strong economy with a lot of construction projects going on, it seems like none of the pros want to pay for this matching service. Maybe this app would work better in a recession?

A couple other jobs we had searched for in the past -kitchen counters and tile etc.. have us some good leads but each Pro at that time said our job wasn’t big enough. So my only suggestion would be more people that take on smaller jobs . Love it

I was able to hire Pablo Olifer of OLIFIR’S CONSTRUCTION. Regardless that the temperature reached 103 degrees that day, he came on time and replaced 7 36” steps leading to a new landing (also replaced) and adjacent to a large deck. All supports were replaced and no longer have a risk of falling on decomposing steps! He thoroughly cleaned the site, disposing of remaining pieces of cut lumber (redwood), completing the job in a day. Have had numerous contractors over the past, none as organized and capable. He has also agreed to return to adjust a small gate leading to space under the porch and staircase! Highly recommend “Paul”, aka Pablo!
EllieMaejo's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 8/21/18 2:31 PM
I bought a Townhouse which had been vacant for 8 months. This company has had a BBB (Better Business Bureau) A+ rating. This is THE ONLY COMPANY who not only Remediated mold, but REPAIRED and/or REPLACED that which needed to be done. The estimate given was not only easy to understand, it was also the ONLY ONE which included LARGE PHOTOGRAPHS of the areas that needed to be treated. Ron’s was the ONLY one of the 3 estimates given who addressed the concerns of BOTH the home inspector and mold inspection report. In addition, he installed a dehumidifier, removed and bagged all carpeting in basement, Hydraulic epoxy injected cracks noted in his report. He replaced furnace filter and thoroughly cleaned all areas once carpet was removed, all walls, rafters under stairs AND he explained simply HOW his crew was going to do this, (per inspection reports) along with breakdown on price. The price was extremely fair considering he was doing more than anyone else, which I would have needed to hire separate individuals to complete the items he INCLUDED ALONG with a FIVE YEAR WARRANTY on the commissioned work. Lastly, sent under separate cover via email was a written report of the results AFTER the mold remediation from an independent lab in Florida. (To be kept with my records for future sale) This was my first and only Condo/Townhouse and my first (hopefully the last) experience with Mold. I would give Ron Muddiman of TRI-STATE RESTORATION the highest of reviews for such a THOROUGH job & would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him.

What I enjoy most about Home Advisor is that I get prompt responses to my inquiries, and the pros are not pushy about getting me into projects that I am simply investigating. It would be so easy for them to make me feel like I am wasting their time. Yet this has been completely the opposite of the interactions that I have experienced.Everyone has made me feel like it is perfectly okay for me to seek out quotes and information regarding the projects that I am interested in starting. My inquiry does not require a commitment, beyond appreciation of the effort that they have put into giving me a legitimate and reliable quote.

I spoke to a plumber who was going to charge me a “dispatch” fee of $39.00 just for giving me an “all price options” estimate. He was later straightened out by his office manager not to charge me this fee. This company, Do It Yourself Plumbers, lost all integrity, honesty, and trustworthiness with me. And you people referred me to them. We’re done here. And please, don’t even think about contacting me.

dearanastasia's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 8/19/18 3:32 PM
After reading other reviews and horror stories that transpired from this app, I think I dodged a bullet. I was looking for a contractor to install structural beams and remove 2 walls. I received just one call after waiting some time. And after talking to Lawrence and giving him all the details and sending all the pictures, I didn’t even get a quote, he disappeared into thin air. Now I think may be I got lucky that he did. I will be deleting this app. And it left me wondering how it’s overall rating is 4.6 stars when so many people are posting such disappointing feedback!

donkeyboy11238's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 8/16/18 7:40 PM
I like HomeAdvisor and have used the referrals a couple of time which turned out great. However I recently investigated a project and selected the option that I didn’t want an estimate at this stage but my details were distributed to suppliers anyway. Then I received a number of unwanted calls and had to go on to the internet and initiate a live chat to have the matter terminated. This is highly problematic that your contact details are distributed without consent and that you then have to field calls from the suppliers. This is frustrating for the user and a waste of time for the supplier.
Faheem Wahand's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 4/24/19 10:20 PM
Home advisor is ripping off contractors left and right. I found out through different contractors they are getting charged $50 for just contacting the customer. I called two different contractors to look at my job. I feel so bad that they were charged for the job they did not get. We are not charged but these contractors are getting rip off. My advice to people don’t trust this ripping off app and company.

Made an appointment with through the app, which then sent me confirmation of the appointment. Took time off for the appointment in the day. The appointment time comes and no one shows up. I reach out to the company and the guy says he never confirmed any appointments this week. I am not sure how this app operates but this is unacceptable. Had I known I would have just contacted the company on my own.

Outrageous pricing. Charged $400 to replace a plastic dryer vent cover on outside of house. 1/2 hr. labor and cost of plastic dryer cover was $400. Would never recommend for that kind of cost. Will also inform realtor both buyer and seller of this companies outrageous pricing.

According to the TV commercial, this app is supposed to tell you what people are paying for a service in your area. Didn’t work for me. Just gave me a list of companies. This app is not what I am looking for. Very disappointed.
ckgxgk's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 4/24/19 10:20 PM
So we hired a pro recommended on Home Advisor. The guy shows up a couple times and did terrible work. Then stole our money given to him for so called materials that we never received and then never responded to calls and text messages. We are now out $4000! This whole thing was a scam from day one. We have 3 kids and trusted Home Advisor would recommend good professionals. Come to find out this contractor was arrested for fraud a couple years ago. Home Advisor took my complaint but then never called me back. Oh and the person that left this guy a five star review was also arrested with this contractor in the previous fraud. Very disappointed!!

concrete c's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 4/24/19 10:20 PM
We are a professional company. And last year we was trying to work with this ridiculous company to get more business but all what they do is take our money sending discounted phone numbers, and charging money for absolutely everything and wend we try to turn it off we keep receiving leads. If someone is in the website just checking around they will turn it on to a lead so if you get 4 real leads out of 10 you are lucky but from the 4 you get 1 or 2 are for services you don’t provide and you going to be competing with 3 or 4 more pros to likely get 1 job out of 10 leads. So I recommend you to be really careful if you are getting tied with this bunch of layers.

First project, they set me up with a company for my gutters that were clogged. Waited and waited only to get a call from the company to tell me they were based in a different state. Next project I reached out for painting, invited the few companies that showed up as “pro’s” to give me a quote. What is odd is I live in a major city, only three businesses showed up. None of them contacted me. This app might be great in areas where they have buy in. Clearly not the case in Wisconsin.

Homeadvisor is a waste of money. Most of the leads that you pay for are a scam. 4 out of 5 leads are fake. When you call to get credits they put you on hold for 30 minutes so that you get tired and give up. Worst customer service and worst use of advertising dollars. STAY AWAY!

Dr. Eleven's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 4/24/19 10:20 PM
The website works very well to get me and my problem connected to one or more pros that can fix it. But the most helpful part of their free service has turned out to be their own people: I often don’t know how to describe the problem in a way that fits how the pros think; and, because I’m stressed about the problem and often am not sure what the problem is, having a person help sort it out is a big help

This is truly amazing!'s Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 4/24/19 10:20 PM
Great concept but not executed properly in terms of who gets my information. I downloaded the app to get a general idea of what was out there for some house renovations. I was simply comparing prices and reviews to find the best fit and this app seemed like the perfect place so I didn’t have to sift through google for a few hours. However, This turned into me having to block a few company numbers because they would NOT stop calling me at all hours of the day. I’d ignore a call due to being busy or at work, but they’d be insistent on calling back immediately. Most of these companies wouldn’t even leave a voicemail which just just verified that these aren’t the companies I want to come unto my house. If these are the type of companies using this app, then I want no part of it.
Swimcap67's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 4/24/19 10:20 PM
I recently used Israel Ramos of EASY Home Repairs in Tulsa, OK to repair my kitchen and entry hallway brick tile floor. The floor had become “crunchy” in 4 areas. The job required removal of tiles to preserve them, prepping the slab floor, re-laying the tiles and grouting to match the original floor. Like many projects, the job grew as he found more voids and had to remove more tiles. He’s a hard worker, a straight shooter, and a pro at tile repairs. The repairs look great, and I will use him again for other home repairs!
Dana.Turner's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 4/24/19 10:20 PM
The service is very good if you are looking to hire qualified companies the down side is that the companies don't always help. Sometimes they will tell you there’s something else wrong to provide a more expensive service and if you insist they tell you to try someone else

I personally paid for my company and they never screened us. Never send us real people in leads. Scam
Joe from Marcellus's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 4/24/19 10:20 PM
Brian is a personable guy who is well equipped to do a professional job in a timely fashion. He showed up on time and did more than the work I contracted for’. He removed 12 plus big stumps ( mostly black walnut and 1 maple 1 oak ) The property is full of hills making the work more difficult. He charged us a fair price for the work he did and saw a difficult project to the end. I would highly recommend Ames and plan to nurse them again for any future projects.

Victim Tim's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 4/24/19 10:20 PM
Do yourself a favor and avoid this app entirely. They hooked me up with a paving contractor that was an absolute crook, B&J Blacktop Paving from Plainfield, IN. Home Advisor did absolutely no vetting of this contractor whatsoever - I later found out they had an “F” rating with the BBB. B&J demanded a lot of money up front, showed up for a couple of days, then left and never came back. I finally had to hire a reputable contractor to clean up the mess and finish the job. When I first complained to Home Advisor customer service, they appeared sympathetic and told me that they would refer me to their investigative group. The initial guy I talked to said that B&J was only listed on their site for 2 weeks, but that they had accepted 28 jobs during that time! This initial Home Advisor guy told me that this was a clear indication of fraudulent activity. So, I was anticipating support from Home Advisor in my quest to get my money back. No such luck. The special investigative group never contacted me; I finally had to call them. When I finally did get in touch with them, they were defensive and argumentative. They made it clear that they were nothing but a marketing platform and that they would do nothing to support me. This outfit is nothing but smoke and mirrors - they have fancy advertising and a slick app, but in reality they are nothing but a front for disreputable contractors. I warn everyone I know to avoid this app; I recommend that you learn from my experience and avoid this service also.

LesHug1's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 12/6/17 1:51 PM
I was told I would receive a call 20 minutes before the technician would arrive. I received the call, and about 15 minutes later received another call stating the technician would be late because he had to go back to the residence where he was working before to pick up some items he left behind. I believe this is their way of promising an exact on time schedule and changing it. I received another call about an hour later stating the technician was on his way. This was the evening before Thanksgiving and we had no water and no plumbing supply stores were open. We had to have water or I would never have allowed this. The plumber showed up with a part that costs between $35 to $50, depending on where it is purchased, and I was charged $484 to replace it. It took about 20 minutes and that is only because he was a talker. I could have replaced the part myself in 5-10 minutes at the most. I already had the valve to the faucet taken off when he arrived and knew the part I needed. You might think that it was worth the cost because of the holiday but the plumber told me he didn’t mind working on the holiday because his religion didn’t allow him to celebrate it. By the way, the cost would have been the same whether it was a holiday or not. He was kind, efficient, and completed the job responsibly but I did have to give him suggestions on how to remove the part. This service is efficient and timely to say the least. It is simply absurdly expensive.

I contacted The Patch Boys to repair my kitchen ceiling that had been damaged by a water leak in a second floor bathroom. The water left the dry wall stained and created a two-inch hole in the ceiling. I sent pictures of the damage and received a response, a reasonable estimate and a scheduled date to accomplish the work from Mike, the owner, in a timely manner. He arrived at the agreed time, evaluated the damaged area and went right to work. He cut out the damaged sheet rock, replaced it and applied at least three coats of joint compound. The job was completed in less time than estimated and it looks great. I would highly recommend The Patch Boys for repairing walls and ceilings.

Do not sign up for this app unless you want 100s of phone calls and text a day by contractors. They send your number out to an absurd amount of contractors who call and text you repeatedly everyday, including Sundays. Worst part is, there’s no way to stop it or tell the app that the job has been completed. Worst. App. Ever.

I will no longer be using home advisor. The last two times I was just curious on what pros were out there, they called me within minutes and a few of them called up to three times and left voicemails each time. Also I was supposed to receive a $50 cash reward for using 3 of their pros and writing reviews. Did all that and never received my money so I’m guessing that’s a scam. I’m using another service now that will let you look at pros and see reviews without the desperate phone calls begging for me to use their service.

Cajungal60's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 12/30/18 12:43 PM
BEWARE!!! The contractor appears to be so honest and trustworthy. We gave him our deposit, for the fence and he showed up when he wanted, usually around 2-3 in the afternoon every few days. It took over a month to get our fence erected and he never came back to haul away construction debris. The second part of our project involved masonry work which we paid him 50% up front. He bragged on his mason and we found out later that they had never met or worked together before. He subcontracted to someone he didn’t even know and never bothered to show up and provide direction. Now that the job is nearly complete, it seems he realized he didn’t have enough money in the job, and now claims a significant part of the work was not included in his bid. He refuses to budge and wants full payment NOW. DON’T TRUST HIM!!! DNA PROPERTY SPECIALTIES, Dustin Reinke, is unreliable, has difficulty communicating with others, hires sub-contractors without ever having met them. He is not dependable. I had numerous conversations with Dustin about communication with me so I can plan my schedule for the day. There was never a text, or phone call stating he was running late, etc. Dustin does not return phone calls, texts, and emails. He promises something and does NOT follow through. We are about to have a lien put on our home, even though we have met our contract. Please don’t let this happen to you. BUYER BEWARE!!! A concerned consumer

I found home advisor online and decided to get it a try “worse mistake”...I was contacted by Maria so I schedule a meeting with and met in person. I walked Maria around and explain all the things I need cleaning entire kitchen bathrooms floors ect. We scheduled a date and time for the cleaning, and When I return back a few days after the cleaning I noticed several things were not completed. I spoke to Maria and had her to return so I could point out all of the things that weren’t completed or cleaned. She had the cleaning ladies to return and still there were left unclean. I have had cleaning people in my home prior to my tenants and I will definitely will be looking for them.
West Larry's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 12/30/18 12:43 PM
I was a little disappointed about the process involved in simply getting an average cost for any specific project. It reminded me of asking for a quote on a car purchase or lease. They want you to input all of your information, so they can contact you.

spookybell's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 12/30/18 12:43 PM
I thought this app would help me find plumbers, contractors, handymen via the app. I have little time to make phone calls during business hours, so text, email and apps seems like the best way for me to communicate with professionals. As I requested services while putting babies to sleep, I got a phone call a few minutes after just opening the response that a plumber was interested in a job. I couldn’t answer and talk while trying to put baby down. The next morning at 6:50, they plumber called again to offer services, however 6:50 AM is NEVER a time to place a phone call unless you know someone is expecting. So, I have used the app to send a message to prospective workers. It appears as a text being sent, but no one ever answers. I don’t understand why this app is helpful. I can easily google search plumbers and call them when it’s convenient for me. Why would I need an app to have the plumber call me at inconvenient times. I’m not giving up on the app but hopefully finding a way to have this help me.

I wanted to do some planning for a new project but had to enter an address before I could connect with contractors. I entered more than two weeks for projected start date but started receiving calls fir contractors immediately. They told me that HA said the project was immediate and urgent. It’s been annoying to use this app but I hope it improves.

It use to be I put in a request and got calls immediately. Now I put in requests and I get numbers to call them but they don’t return my calls. Maybe they don’t want business but why would they pay for leads? Confused. Just logged a request and it said check availability and pricing, click on the link and it says “No availability at this time”. Losing confidence in this referral network/service.

Although the business I chose was a bit pricey, I really got the value I spent and am very happy with their work. I had not used Home Advisor before, but plan to do so on projects in the future.

I hired a contractor to get my garbage disposal replaced. The contractor contacted me, I accepted the offer and he failed to show up on 3 different occasions. When I tried to write a negative review on HomeAdvisors app they emailed back saying they wouldn’t accept it “because he didn’t provide a service” clearly because he never showed up. If your business model is to rely on the reviews of others and negative reviews aren’t published, your business model is really to take money from contractors and mislead consumers. DO NOT TRUST

I used the app to get an idea of price. This is an option they have. ( to just do that and NOT talk to someone just yet) After checking for plumbers in the area and not trying to make an appointment yet, home advisor called me to see if they could help me find a plumber. Uh, thats why I downloaded the app. So I didn’t have to talk to anyone! THEN they gave my phone number out to several plumbers who have also been calling me all day. This is terrible and not at all what I had in mind when downloading this app. Skip the head ache and just look for people online or get recommendations from friends.

The problem I had was a very distinctive and unpleasant odor coming from under my house. I was told by a plumber to contact Serv-pro to see if removing soil and checking for mold contamination was needed. Two people came out to the house. An inspector went under the house looked around, came back out and I was told I would be hearing from them the next day with an estimate. I never heard from them again.

I have an active drain leak in my ceiling. The plumber came out without a ladder. Chopped a hole in my ceiling and said leak is from the roof vent. Said he could t fix it and asked to be paid. I paid him a $150 and he left. Turns out it was my toilet leaking not the roof vent at all. Called the plumber and he wouldn’t refund my money. Springfield Plumbing is terrible to do business with.
scam referrals's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 12/13/18 12:39 PM
First of all, the first contractor that texted me with an estimate of 1 job, never even looked at the job! He wanted payment in full ($2000) to be put on his calendar. Sent increasingly scary, filthy texts, until I reported him to police, and blocked his number. Second, I received approximately 3-15 suggested contractors for the 3 jobs I needed done each. 80%+ of these listed contractors either no longer did this work or NEVER did to begin with! Thirdly, EVERY contractor that I received a name and number for was charged a referral fee for my job info. 1 contractor came out which I hired, I found him on Yelp, not this app, however this app still charged him over $30 referral fee for a job which he made under $300 for; and I had not used this app to find! That’s a huge ripoff considering 80%+ of them were NOT REAL REFERRALS! RUN, don’t walk away from this scam app! Contractors should beware! Use YELP! More reliable and no fees!! Sheesh!

Unfortunately I would have to rate five star mediocre at best. They came to my house with buckets paper towels and a ladder. The ladder was not even tall enough to do a proper job edges of windows drippy and water marked. Some of the screen still had leaves and dirt on them. I had read all the reviews and was excited to hire them. I was in for a big surprise. In all good conscience I could not recommend five star. Incidentally I did pay the fee I had agreed to. But felt I was raped, if it were my company I would not have taken the check.

CindyW27's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 12/13/18 12:39 PM
I am a fan of Trip Advisor, using the advice for years. However, Home Advisor needs more evaluation of the pros listed. We used Southern Appalachian Renovations for our smallish bathroom remake. After three months of work and paying 130% more than the average you list, we have an unfinished bathroom. The tile was not extended into the closet. The bathtub only runs with cold water since the valve by this contractor, not the plumber, was installed wrong. There is regular grout laid over power grout and that must be done. The contractor was not on the job much, frequently calling to ask us, the homeowners to pick up something fit the job. The thresholds were not installed. The paint must be repaired. The outlets at the sink are not to code (GFCI). And the outlets are installed where the mirror belongs. The mirror wasn’t hung. The toilet wasn’t caulked. The nail holes weren’t filled in. The The list goes on and on. Swordtail renovation ever! We paid extra money to one of the partners to assist the buying of the fixtures. We ended up having to do most of this ourselves. We bought and delivered the toilet, tub, vanity and all other fixtures. In the end when we asked for work to be finished, they “pro” asked for more money and said they would only finish certain items, not everything that would finish the job. So we stopped any more work being done and have been calling real pros to come finish the job. There is no recourse in our state (NC) to address these problems since the no licensing is required unless the job costs a minimum of $30,000. So please don’t fall footprints this person who is not a PRO! Palmetto Sun

RV Winkle's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 12/13/17 9:24 AM
Why are “professional” profiles vague when it should contain details. Other than trying to find someone local, I find this app is lacking key elements about the “professional.” Sure, there’s a snippet of a bio, but it lacks specifics. For example, if I’m searching a profile for power washing/cleaning exterior one-story residential project, I want to know if “professional” is going to use his or my water source (if it’s mine, I’ll charge him for water usage), chemicals used, water pressure, other methods used in cleaning when the power wash failed, etc. This is only one example, and the same applies to other projects that I noticed. If this app is to help me select a “professional” then give me more than reviews and bio snippet. Reviews help, but they can be biased or paid for. To sum it up, when I review profiles, I want to know why this “professional” believes (s)he deserves my business. Up front, I want to know service details, certifications, licenses, years experience, education/training, etc. And when I make my selection then I’ll discuss details about the project and inquire additional information from the “professional.” This app should be setup in favor of the consumer, not the professional. Like I mentioned above, “why does this professional believes (s)he deserves my business.” I’m the one paying hundreds or thousands for a service or project. App has GREAT potential!!!

Finding good professionals for home repairs has always been difficult. The ‘friends who know someone’ have often resulted in high cost and disappointing results. I have been interested in HomeAdvisor since I heard their ads, decided to try a low risk project before a larger, more expensive one I have planned. Beginning to end this has been a great experience! 2 of 3 recommended professionals called, online reviews of products and companies helped me choose and the project was completed well and early. I am looking forward to my next project!

The quality of the contractors has been good. I have had more than my share of AC issues.

Worst decision to ever register on that app! They ask for a phone number and share it with contractors, who immediately begin calling you. It’s been three weeks now and I still receive at least 10 calls a day!!!! I’ve never seen anything like that in my entire life, I don’t know how to end this!!!

Home Advisor found me great contractors for 25 years and was satisfied getting written quotes making budgeting easy. That should be mandatory with FL contractors to try to avoid big dollar ripoff s with the best work from a sober construction Forman left me with his laborer friend d**** pill poper to complete a $40K kitchen bathrooms remodel contract.

Connected with only contractors, no handyman options. The contractors were not reliable and overpriced.
Greek Woman's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 10/5/18 1:22 PM
I don’t understand why people rate this App by complaints about contractors. Does the Developer of this App is also behind what the contractors do? I doubt it. In my opinion this App should be rated as the design of an App and the reviews should only pertain to how well it’s developed. I of course could be wrong but logically there has to be an entity. How in the world will the developer receive anything from contractors? Angie’s List is where you send your complaints. As for the Developer give him a rate about his App. I, personally rated the App and I commend the Developer for listening and answering. Again rate the App. It’s like killing the messenger. Hellooooo America

I have had five star help. Except when I hired a company to tile half of my home. I had planned the job n had to put off the start date over six weeks cause a huge oak tree fell on my house doing $35,000 damage. After all was fixed I had the tile company come in. Great reviews! Well they were the company from hell. I never rechecked the reviews. By the time I had them do the work the company was kicked out of home advisors !! No help. My fault. So check n double check

Bellacuda's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 10/3/18 2:06 AM
I downloaded the app to first check pricing of local jobs similar to the ones I am considering - just as the TV commercial indicated. You can’t investigate ANY project without entering your phone, project address, and email...once you do that the project and any details along with all your information is sent to a long list of non-local referrals. THE CALLS WILL START BEFORE YOU FIGURE OUT WHAT HAPPENED. Also the pricing listed on line is no help at all. I see no reference to prices of jobs done in my area. The only pricing is in absurd ranges such as $22k - $137k for the same job. All referrals require a consultation with a sales person to get price - not good if you are just researching. To developer: I’ll improve my review if you add a feature to opt out of sending referral information until you are ready AND live up to your advertisement that claims you can research pricing on similar jobs in my area.

The concept of this company places the customer in contact with pre-approved contractors. It’s a win/win situation for both the customer and contractor...
bakchodbhediya's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 10/17/18 12:56 PM
Does the trick if you want to fix something quick. Does not have a great listing in all areas. Where I live there’s only 1 provider for lawn care listed here. However, there are many more people providing service in my area. Home advisor should try to attract more service providers in all areas.
Duncan8240's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 10/15/18 8:50 PM
I have used this app twice and have had some very unprofessional people come by to try and do the job. I had a stair guy tell me he couldn’t get into the building and after waiting 30 mins for him and calling him I walked around the building to find his vehicle and him nowhere. After waiting another 30 minutes I left and went about my day. He called me later to tell me I didn’t show up for the appointment and when I told him I saw his truck he said he locked his keys and phone in the truck and couldn’t respond to my calls. This is just the tip of the iceberg. The most recent plumber came within 30 mins of posting the job and while fixing the problem left to go to his truck and thankfully I was aware that when he disconnected the house from the dishwasher he failed to shut the water off and the kitchen started flooding. After he tried to blame my wife for not turning the dishwasher off I told him to just finish the job of which he charged me $400 for 1 hours worth of work and wouldn’t provide me with any bill or what exactly I was paying for. As soon as he left the house I cancelled the check and am still waiting for a bill which I will determine if I will pay since I had to clean up the water, clean up after his work, and then dispose of his trash and left behind supplies. Last time trying this.

dadeboydaze's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 10/14/18 4:25 PM
looked and took over 2 months for a reply from a company... all where over priced or never followed up... had only Two contractors out of 5 to actually come look at project but one never followed up with a quote... this home advisor web site is good with contacting me but never followed up with the companies that accepted the bid, but they never actually showed up to even look at the project!!! only one company showed up and offered a price which was almost 100,000 dollars and that's just ridiculous!!! materials for the project is under 10,000 dollars including cement. So they wanted to pocket almost 90,000 for labor alone. All in all i'm not happy with home advisor... but i'm getting my basement done with some help from a good friend and elbow grease... i'd rather do this project my self then then wait another 3 to 4 months shopping for a contractor thru this website... i could've been done by now with all the time i wasted with home advisor!!!

I use the app on multiple devices, iOS and Android. On the 1st gen iPad Pro 12.9, with Smart Keyboard, the app does not go into landscape mode, thereby forcing one of two things: turn my head 90 degrees to figure out the app, or use without the keyboard. I’d rather use the keyboard, thank you.

Hello I wanted to give some of you a heads up. I downloaded the app just to check it out. After I did a random search for a service. And read their reviews, I was called by every company on that list with out me requesting for and services needed. So be aware to receive many calls and text. The idea and concept of the app is great but they sell your info not great.

HomeAdvisor got the right pros immediately. Have not had the appointment yet. I will write a review of the service after it’s finished. I liked that HomeAdvisor gives you a choice to choose a contractor without having to get a call from a bunch of them. I got to choose first.

Been with Home Advisor for years, I’ve done well over a dozen projects but I don’t get the rewards that they promise ( $50.00 after three verified reviews). I’ve called four times to ask about this and they say they don’t know why. I do its because Angie’s List is better and they are feeling the pinch and can’t afford the $50 rewards anymore.

GumbyGolfer's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 10/1/18 7:57 PM
All I wanted to do was go into the app and explore some options to get an idea of what contractors were in the area. Not one minute after being in the app, I started getting calls from sears asking me when I’d like them to start working on my bathrooms. What!? Kinda Creepy. I don’t appreciate This App freely giving out my info and then further being bothered with phone calls. I saw some my contractor options and their info, if I wanted to contact one of them I would have.
shaunbreen's Review of HomeadvisorReviewed on 10/1/18 4:30 PM
You can’t just browse the contractors with out you address and phone number being sent to them. Then the nonstop calling and email DOESN'T stop!!! even when you tell them to stop! It becomes harassing! The contractors they recommend are people that can’t get work elsewhere. Don’t bother! I’m still waiting for them to deactivate my account....! Too bad, I was hoping for better...

Top rated Grout Medic, in 2017, in Oklahoma was hired last February. By November grout is coming up in shower. This is a franchise company and although I am less than a year (1/2/2018) today from paying for services on (02/28/2017) and I have the receipt they will not honor warranty! Also, the franchise number keeps hanging up on me after I asked to speak to supervisor! I had originally been told I had a 10 year warranty now they say one year warranty either way this complaint was filed 10 months following completion. Home Advisor recommendations can not be trusted!

Todd Wells answered our call for a metal roof repair on New Years Day and came the next day to estimate the job. He was very thorough taking several pictures and providing a fair cost. He and his crew came the next day and completed the job showing me what they repaired. At the completion they cleaned up all debris and took it away. Very polite and professional. We highly recommend his work call 504-442-6428.

So I closed the app and then the next day this electrician calls me if I would like to set up an appointment? Always go as local as possible... better results if your able to complain face to face every day. Word of mouth locally can make or break a company. Won’t use this App again.

I signed up for this app to get an idea of what others were paying for services. No where did I request for anyone to contact me to schedule appointments or call me back with quotes. No where did I see the businesses were required to call me back within 24 hours of searching for a particular service. Within 12 hours I deleted the app. I have received many phone calls from individuals I never requested a call from for their service rather was looking in broad ideas, furthermore when selecting when I’d be looking it was not for a date in the future. The features this app expresses is not what my outcomes where. I am not impressed as three days later I am still receiving calls.

I simply downloaded the home advisor app to get a list of pros to contact in my area for a project. I was required to put in my phone number and email address. After looking up pros I got 2 contacts. Then the next morning I get 3 phone calls from a random contractor starting at 7am that I did not request or solicit!!! I am disturbed that home advisor provided contractors with my contact information without my permission!! In addition home advisor has been harassing me with non stop txt messages trying to get me to use their services. I have had to block the contractors phone number and home advisor to stop the harassment. Just use google to find your next contractor. Your search will be Much easier, less stressful and more confidential if you DON’T use home advisor!!

The cost was reasonable and the workmen were efficient and cleaned up after completing the project. I highly recommend this company.
