They charge for leads whether you capture the call or not!!!
This service hasn’t failed me yet! I’ve used it three times for different things and was always happy with the result.
Washing Machine is malfunctioning 1/5
By Dirty clothes King
Contacted Home advisor and requested service for my stackable two year old GE washing machine. They sent me 4 “pros” within seconds. I immediately selected all four for a quote. None of them responded??? Is this because I requested quotes?
Disgusting Business 1/5
A friend of mine and I started a small business a few months ago and ever since creating a website have been harassed by both home advisor and yelp with relentless and ridiculous sales pitches at least 3 times a week. The sites want you to list with them and to buy ads on their site (which is not cheap) but they don’t just give you the standard pitch and leave it at that, instead it’s a robocall every day and occasionally a relentless representative who you have to say no to multiple times before he says he’ll call back later and hangs up. They have no respect for businesses and they receive a finders fee for every service you find through them. Contact your local small businesses DIRECTLY. NOT THROUGH HOME ADVISOR OR YELP.
Best power wash we’ve ever had done to our home. We’ll definitely use them in the future. Home Advisor been ‘spot on’ with our home needs as this is the 3rd time we’ve hired a one of your clients!
No Response 1/5
By Home Waste of Time
Tried this service for first time March 2019. Wanted an addition to back yard deck. First contractor came out. Discussed what I wanted. Bout a 30 minute visit. Said he would have estimates ready in a week. Two weeks later nothing. Called the contractor on a Tuesday as a follow up. Contractor apologize for delay and saids I will have estimate by EOD next day. It's Sunday night now.... NO ESTIMATE. Second contractor calls while I'm working asking I return their call asap. Three calls later... nothing. Home Advisor?? More like Home Waste of Time. Angie's List I'm coming HOME!!!!!
Excellent service 5/5
PMC, did a great job of building a patio, installing an irrigation system, and laying sod. They were very helpful in helping me refine the ideas in my head and making them work in my yard. They were extremely professional. I have a fenced in backyard and they had to leave the gate open to bring supplies and equipment in and out. They had the gates propped open with large rocks. When I needed to let my dogs out all I had to do was ask and they would close the gate and make sure the dogs were back inside before opening the gates back up. They cleaned up all their mess and even came back to fix an area where water was pooling on my driveway after a heavy rain.
Not for simple/single jobs 3/5
I downloaded the app and set up for a single window repair job. I haven’t heard back from anyone via email or calls and I selected 3 local contractors/companies in my area. Apparently yelp is better help than home advisor.
I thought I could just get ballpark prices (it’s how they advertised it) because I was looking at buying a fixer up and determining a budget. When you ask about a project it specifically asks do you want quotes or are you just investigating. Of course I clicked the ladder. From 5 minutes after I signed up and for weeks after I received calls from contractors. All of whom pay HomeAdvisor $100 for leads- I am not even a live lead.
Then I received three calls from HomeAdvisor to see how my project was going. 🙄
On many occasions, I have TRIED to find 1) someone for a project or service and 2) someone qualified. I’ll give 3 examples where it was anywhere from useless to a waste of time to hiring someone who had “verified” reviews but was one of the WORST “home pros” I hired in all of the people I have contracted to do work on my house in the past 2 years. 1) I wanted to get pro referrals for a bathroom remodel. I got one referral that was decent. All of the rest “didn’t have time”, and one came over smelling like a distillery to look at the job for an estimate. It took him 3 weeks to get back to me. Needless to say, I didn’t hire any of these people. Completely useless and a waste of time. 2) I had personal property to get appraised and, even though I was very specific with the search, they sent me real estate appraisers. There’s no way to even give them feedback that they need to improve their searches! —that was the waste of time. 3) here’s the biggie- I hired “25 painters” to paint my house 2 years ago using HomeAdvisor. They say they have verified reviews. BE CAREFUL. Look at other sites for reviews! This group took MONTHS to paint my house. They sent people that were clearly not painters and I had to continually keep lists of what they had missed. I will NEVER rely on HomeAdvisor for any work on my house again!
Very profesional and rapid respond thanks
Nobody responds to quote requests!
Thank You 5/5
Will definitely use the service again. So glad I have the App.
By Blind Shady
I caught your contractor breaking into my house because she messed up her schedule and needed to make up time I assume. I had told her not to come at the time she desired because I had an oncologist appt.
Carley Palmerton cannot be trusted.
By Really Clown
Worst experience I have ever had with anyone working in my home. Employee was not knowledgeable nor experienced. Chunks taken out of my furniture drains left open and a service contract “built in”. I won’t let them back in regardless.
Exterior Painting 5/5
I am grateful that home advisor followed up and provided me more contacts for my project. I am very satisfied with the work it’s done. Thank you.
Not at all satisfied 1/5
No one ever contacted me about the service I was looking for I got a call saying someone would call but the never did!!! Very disappointed 🤔
Beware - DO NOT USE THIS APP 1/5
After I used this app one time I received hundreds of unsolicited calls on my cell phone.
Do not use this app or company!
They sell your information!
The positive reviews are fake!
Veterans clean up 5/5
By clean up after nasty renters
Nice honest guys
By Kirkland Country
Luke and his crew were on-time , thorough and detailed painters . They worked with us and made the additional improvements as the process began . We had more that painting done but repairs to the Hardi-board siding and trim. I would recommend them.
Unbearable amounts of SPAM 1/5
Someone put in my personal information and now I can’t stop getting spam emails, phone calls, voicemails, and people knocking on my door. INSANE
Porter’s Powerwashing 5/5
By Maria in Annandale
Porter’s Powerwashing clean my house today, he did a great job and removed all the green substances. I am very happy with the results.
But service 1/5
This service is only for them get money from us they send me 5 calls and I don’t answer any and they charging me $216 dollars I call customer service in there and gave me a good service they always answer you with an excuse I do not recommend, home advisor
No Contractors ever contacted me 1/5

Never Let Me Down 5/5
By HateThe App
No matter what the job and we’ve had lots of home advisor has always come through we appreciate their service that they provide.
These people are not honest 1/5
I was looking for a contractor I didn’t see anything I liked I did not ask for a quote and I started receiving phone calls this is wrong
Stood up! 2/5
I contacted Home Advisor looking for a Roof repair contractor last January. Someone called me right away. I’m happy. We arranged an appointment and the rep. showed up punctually. We reviewed the project. He was very professional; promised me a written quote the following day. I’m happy. I’ve not heard from him or his company since despite my (polite) inquiring calls. I am no longer happy. That meeting was on January 29th.
Looking for a professional 5/5
I have used home advisor several times and have been impressed with the professionals that have contacted me.
First experience 1/5
I submitted a request on a Monday the app said I would receive a call from a certain company never did. I called the company Tuesday turns out the don’t service in my area. I found somebody on my own and the dryer was fixed Wednesday. Today a week later I had 6 missed calls in 3 minutes with no voicemail. The called ID was from an area close to where my family lives so I stepped out of work and called the number back it was a HomeAdvisor operator asking about my dryer. I’m deleting the app.
DO NOT TRUST HOME ADVISOR REVIEWS 1/5
The app is good, but the reviews are designed to protect the contractors. If you have a bad experience with a contractor, expect that your review will be removed. Valid bad experiences will be removed to protect the contractor. Do research on the contractor you hire before hiring them. DONT TRUST THE REVIEWS ON HOME ADVISOR.
Home owner 1/5
By unlucky homeowner
They are recommended me some one unprofessional no license don’t know what they doing... end up asking more money to be finished (I still have all paperwork) I try to call complain about that waiting around 45 minutes they told me they will contact me back but they NEVER did.
All the service I call they changed so much higher compares with people you find from google search services company. I don’t recommend to anyone else. Had it so much 😡
We used the app to find a great contractor 5/5
We found several contractors to home advisor, and we have been very happy with all of them.
Great company, and great app!
Roof repairs 4/5
Quick and easy to use. Allows you to make an appointment when you are ready without being pushy.
It would be helpful to be able to get quotes without having to have your phone blow up with prospective workers when you specifically answer that this job is more than two weeks out and your trying to budget and plan... I had one company call 4 times with in a 10 minute period and another 3 times plus a text and an email! I’m at work... Won’t be using this app in the future most likely for that reason. I was only looking for an average of what I might need to do a roof.
Several projects 5/5
I have used home advisor on several occasions and have found that they not only saved me time by having professionals available to help me out but also stand to resolve any issues that may arise in a timely manner.
By Anthony M...
What a great way to find the contractors you need. HomeAdvisor takes the leg work out of having to do background checks, don’t get me wrong you’ll still have to get estimates but at least there are reviews and other opinions to go by!!!
Your recommendations 2/5
You gave me two roofers and haven’t heard from either one in three days.
No response 2/5
So far I have contacted 5 of your recommendations. Not one had the courtesy to even call back to say they were not interested. Not sure how they get 5 star ratings. I would think a phone call is not asking too much no matter how busy they are.
Never again 1/5
I will never again hire someone from home adviser. Frost time and last time. This was terrible workmanship.
Tree Service 5/5
I count on Home Advisor to recommend services.
I was very pleased with Chase Jones from Have Not Tree Service.
You also referred A power wash company that also did a great job.
Home repairs 5/5
Home Adviser is the ‘BEST’!!
They’ve been ‘bang on’ when I’ve remembered to use them!
The people they connected me with (now and in the past)contacted me immediately and did quality work/repairs!
Do not inquire until you’re ready to get 100+ calls 3/5
So, in theory this app is awesome but within the first 48 hrs of having this app I made like 2 inquires on some random projects for my house and I’ve received sooooo many phone calls and emails. Like nonstop. All day.
For the love of God - do NOT inquire about a job/quote unless you want the fiery gates of phone call hell unleashed upon you.
G Professional Tree Services 5/5
I am not easy to impress and I’m very hard to work for so giving a revue is something earned from me!If you need a tree service this is the company to hire!!!! I had a massive tree project and limited space to work in to remove a tree that had become “3in1”and they were a well organized team. They were there for 9 hours trying not to damage the fencing, the pool, and enormous branches that hovered over the roof of my neighbors house. I watched the whole process and was so in awe of how they did it! There was no damage, and the clean up was perfection at its best. And the icing on the cake was... they price matched. I have already given out some of their business cards and you will too...if you hire them!
Love this App 5/5

Quick easy and I’ve had great luck anytime I’ve used the Pros it’s given me.

Ceiling repair 5/5
By Richie Des
They got me a great drywall contractor he did a beautiful job, very happy. Thank You.
Always great professionals 5/5
I have had great success using HA.
Whenever I use this app the results do not match my project.
Home Advisor is easy to use, has great customer service and delivers results. I wanted bids on plumbing for my addition plans and I had a phone call from a local plumber within minutes.
