Great tool! 5/5
By Sharon M Lance
This is the second time I used the site and both contractors were excellent and came in at a good price. Thank you Home Advisor!
Can’t create account 1/5
I’ve tried a few times, won’t let me creat an account no matter what I try.
A Total Scam!!! 1/5
When I first heard about home advisor I thought is super helpful. However after talking to people who have hired 5 star pros from home advisor, it turned out the project was terrible and those contractors tried to scam home owners by not following the contract.
What’s worse is that they put those fake “estimate” on other websites! I was researching on the cost of installing solar panel on a solar related website, and put my information there to get a estimate. At the end it asked me what other projects I’m interested in doing, so I selected a few. To my surprise, it is all camouflaged by HomeAdvisor, I needed up getting non-stop phone calls since yesterday and it drove me crazy.
Great resource 5/5
They list companies that have a great reputation. Easy to use. One of my best resources when looking for someone to help out with a home project.
Looking for Advise but 3/5
I want to remodel my existing inground Pool on this app but did not allow me to customize my needs.
On the Houzz app- I am able to ask questions and answered by the Pros.
I also wanted to compare the Pros without doing it myself but did not find it.
The app needs an update.
I will keep searching.

INFO SELLER 1/5
By Skynner McGee
I gave one contractor my contact information, via Home Advisor, and suddenly I have contractors calling me throughout the week.
After I told Home Advisor to remove all of the information that they have on me and that I’d talk to a lawyer if they kept selling my information, it stopped ... for 2 days.
Now I have contractors calling me several times a day, 7 days a week.
The last call was from a contractor in northern Maine. I live in Massachusetts.
I asked who gave him my number and when. It was Home Advisor, 1 day after I told them to stop.
I said, if you want to travel for 5-6 hours to give me a free estimate to prune a tree, go right ahead.
He said f&$k you, a@)hole and hung up.
Home Advisor is not only an information seller, this is the kind of person they’re selling your information to.
I’m in the process of discussing this issue with a lawyer, and so far I’ve found out about some laws that internet companies like Home Advisor think nobody else knows about.
I’m looking forward to seeing him again to further discuss my rights and how we’re going to deal with Home Advisor.
True statement 5/5
I have utilized Home Advisor for several years on a variety of projects and found their website easy to navigate, vendors professional and honest and pricing comparable.

Great app; love it!!!
Most reliable 5/5
By Pupala principece
My go to site for services. The workmen I’ve used so far are all reliable professional and right priced. I have confidence knowing they are backed by Home advisor.
Overpriced and kept changing price 1/5
Anderson Exteriors in Columbia, MO replied to my handyman inquiry even though they had never performed the service I inquired about. They came to my home and I told them the projects I was interested in completing and they insisted on trying to do each project the most expensive way possible and hike prices for materials up. When asked if I could provide the materials they tried to get hike the installation labor. Thank you for wasting my time.
House cleaning 5/5
On the 10th of November through your company I hired a cleaning service. The ladies name was Robin . I was impressed at our first meeting. She gave me her price on what I was asking to be done. Which was to deep clean bathroom, kitchen, and a very light dusting of the front room. She quoted me $125.00 dollars. Well I am so disappointed. When she left I really reviewed her work. For the bathroom she did not was around the vent in the ceiling nor did she wipe down the walls nor around the window over the tub as she would have seen the cobwebs. As for the kitchen. She ruined my stove and did not wipe all the oven cleaner off the stove. She was suppose to clean the face of the cupboards as I had asked for. She also did not was the wall behind the stove nor did she catch the dust on the walls. When she did the light dusting in my front room she broke leaves on two of My African violets not just one or two it was allot! I’m so disappointed as she was a very nice lady but not a house cleaner. Will not recommend her to anyone.
Kitchen remodel 2/5
The girl on the phone was nice and helpful but that’s where it ended. The reviews I read on the people I was interested in we’re not available and we’re not taking any referrals. So I was transferred to a contractor that was available. The conversation started out very strange with like three hellos I’m saying is there anyone there. Then he spent five minutes and complained about being charged even when he doesn’t speak to anyone and how shocked he was I was a live person on the phone I assured him I was ready to discuss my project. Wow was I surprised at his prices. I have an 11x12 kitchen and my plan requires only 2 upper and 4 lower cabinets. This is not the kind of house that warrants at $35,000+ kitchen and that is not including appliances. One non load bearing 5ft wall removed. When I was shocked and said wow that’s a lot and I had to hear five minutes of how he has to pay everybody and overhead etc. etc. No wonder he was available.
Fortunately I was able to find somebody on my own that was reasonable and dependable.

Just Love it 5/5
By Mohamed Bashir
So easy to use and find the professional I need
Gives out my phone number 1/5
this app allows for vendors to call you just because you searched for a service in your area. Unacceptable.
Remodel Project 5/5
I LOVE using Home Advisor because they take the guess out of finding professionals to work on your home projects, saving time and money. They do the legwork of checking out the pros and customers can see reviews of the pros other customers have hired making your choice easier to select pros based on your specific projects. I have used and recommended Home Advisor often and will continue as long as I have projects to complete.
Awesome service. 5/5
By E. L. T.
We used Home Advisors on several occasions and they always suggested great and reasonable providers for our projects. If you don’t use Home Advisors you may be doing yourself a disservice.
From plumbing to electrical Home Advisor saved us 5/5
From plumbing to electrical Home Advisor saved us. I always used Craigslist to find my handyman and no more will I ever do that. I love that you can read the reviews and see which one will work Best for your needs. On Craigslist I have been lied to many times and the work is not quality and it always has problems. The people on Home Advisor know that we will place a review and they are all amazing. They work hard to please you and they do their Best. Never going back to Craigslist and play a guessing game- Home Advisor is the only place to search.
Leather Upholstery Repair 5/5
Response to our request was the same day and the work done was excellent and timely.
Poor ap. 3/5
I was not able to contact or book anyone using the ap. Fortunately the phone number was displayed and I took it from there. Now that the work is finished and a high quality result obtained, the ap does not allow me to rate or review the professional performing the work. Fix the Ap PLEASE.
Can’t say enough about Home Advisor. What a wonderful resource. The referrals have all been fabulous.
Not enough OKC pros listed 4/5
Everyone that called us for computer repair was from out of state. We ended up finding a pro ourselves. That company was "Affordable Computer Repair". The guy was English speaking, came to home a couple hours after calling , and did a great job for a reasonable price. He also called back later in the day to make sure everything was still working properly. Another problem was instead of getting a list of pros that we could read about and check reviews, we just kept getting phone calls from out of state people who wanted to do the repairs by talking to us on the phone. Not helpful at all. We also used them to find a locksmith and they only had about 2 or 3 listed and none of them were able to fix our door lock. We have used them for other projects with very good results.
Mill Pond Painting, East Moriches 5/5
Sean was prompt with an estimate. Was reasonable and did a great job. His men arrived on time and got the job done quickly. I highly recommend him.
Great, great App. 5/5
If you're searching out the pros, Home Advisor is the first place to start. One of the best I've seen.
The app needs to have,the ability to rotate on an iPad. It is difficult typing this with my thumbs when I could be using the keyboard attached to my device.
I like the new app! 5/5
I like the new app I just have to wait and see if it is as good as it appears to be. This is my first time using the new feature of appointment scheduling. I will report back later.
Worry free 5/5
I have used Home advisor many times in the past year and have been totally satisfied with all the contractors I have used.
Great Service To Use 5/5
I can’t say enough about HomeAdvisor. The app is so simple to use. Best of all, they find top service professionals in your local area! Great service.
Great company 5/5
I always use them from my house projects.
Gutter Cleaning 5/5
Gutter DoctorX called immediately along with four other companies. They were extremely competitive in price and said they could come within a couple days.
They came today. They did a fabulous job and I was extremely pleased with the gentlemen that came to my house.
I would highly recommend this company.
By Honeybee's daycare
I have gotten very good bids from companies that have been in business for years. They call me, which keeps me focused on my day. I collect several estimates and have the ability to get comfortable with company by witnessing professional practice before the job starts. Very please with this app!
Good and Bad 3/5
First the good. I was able to find an outstanding painter using this tool that I will be giving 5 stars to. I cannot say enough about Leonard Painting!
Now the bad. There is no way to cancel projects on here so if you are just browsing, looking for an idea on price.... vendors will be given your number and will start to call you. I MIGHT be doing tile work in the future and was looking for the price span that the tool gives you. The next thing I knew, people were calling me and I had to take my phone number out of the tool. So only look up projects you absolutely plan on doing, unless you want to be contacted. Also, I found out that Home Advisor charges those contractors about $50 if their name shows up when searching for a project. So whether you call them or not, they have to pay. I thought that was crappy and a little pricey. Hopefully, these contractors are getting enough leads to cover the cost. I’m not sure that I will use the tool again once my painting is done.
Maid services 4/5
Looked for someone to clean my condo used Brandon Barnett did a good for just one guy cleaning a two bedroom condo by himself
Love the ease and effectiveness 5/5
Have used HA several times. Have never been dissatisfied. Always send a pro who is also high on the customer service scale. Thanks HA !
This was the first time I used Home Advisor and am very impressed with the app.
I am considering some home remodeling project and wanted to check out this app to get some names of local professionals. I am just in the planning stage. Had I known that I would be inundated with phone calls within 10 minutes of using the app I never would have given my phone number! I was getting solicitation phone calls at 9:30 at night!
Great App that helps you make decisions 5/5
By South Philadelphia
I’ve moved to GA from out of State and found this App a great way to evaluate and choose good contractors / vendors to do work around my house. Home Advisors helped me to close the gap of not knowing any good service Companies in the area.
Hit or miss 2/5
Sat for 3 hours waiting for someone to show up only to be told by Amazon that the order was cancelled. ( Found out directly from vendor it wasn’t cancelled, Amazon’s back office screwed it up)
ON moving day the theater system person who was supposed to show up at 2pm, cancelled at 1pm!
Call center is NOT in USA.
Saturday drain backing up 5/5
This was the easiest way of getting a job done than i have ever been associated with. Before it was searching the yellow pages,making call after call. Within an hour i had a reasonably priced job finished from putting the info on the app. This app will be at the top on my phone from now on
Best way to find a pro 5/5
By annapolis grad
I’ve used HomeAdvisor quite a few times over the last couple of years and I have never been disappointed. Each pro that I have hired as done an excellent job, showed up when promised and completed the project in a timely fashion.
No Landscape View for iPad 2/5
By LJC In LA
This app has no landscape view for iPad which is very annoying. They should fix this ASAP
Remove old and install new exterior door. 5/5
By R. Sheppard
I contacted Shane on Monday, 10/16 and he remove the old door and installed the new door on Wednesday, 10/18. He was very pleasant to work with. He was very knowledgeable and cleaned up afterwards. He will be back in 2 weeks when the storm door arrives.
Doesn’t accept an address 1/5
By Hyd X
This app doesn’t work. It wouldn’t accept my address in the location field. I tried multiple methods of entry but the NEXT button wouldn’t activate. Recommend avoiding the app and wasting your time.
Easy as pie 5/5
Very easy to navigate. Aka questions that get you to the right professional.
Artisan Landscapes 5/5
By M. Aronson
I rarely write reviews but with the work performed by the team from Artisan, I hope that others can enjoy the creative designs and installations proposed by Melanie and Matt. Their work was above my expectations and everything was completed according to their schedule. If there was a rating of ten stars I would definitely give it to Artisan.
My experiences with Home advisors 5/5
I have talked to 5 advisor suggested contacts. I hired the firm four out five times and was very happy with the work and the process. The only time I did not go with the suggested pro they were more expensive than the pro I went with.
I am very happy with service you provide.
The Plumber 1/5
By Big Hungry27
Home Advisor should do a better job recommending a company. My recent experience with "The Plumber" was not very good. I had my basement partially flood on a Monday but they were not available until Thursday, which is understandable because of the number of people calling.
I was not available until Friday so that is when the appointment was made. Keith the plumber arrived and told us it would be $313 plus tax to clear the drain. I felt that was a ridiculous price and called Home Advisor to complain but that amounted to nothing. HA has zero ability to help the customer in this situation.
In the end after complaining several times about the inflated price the plumber discounted the price $75.00. With tax is was still almost $300.00. The drain was cleared but now there is a strong odor coming from the basement that was not there before the service was performed. I removed the water and sanitized the basement floor before the plumber came.

Pro charged me the $25 Home Advisor Fee. 3/5
Not sure why Home Advisor charges pros a fee. I haven’t had this issue with Thumbtack. Also, Thumbtack doesn’t barrage me with phone calls and emails like Home Advisor does. I’m not sure if I’ll use Home Advisor again as I much prefer Thumbtack.
