    HomeAdvisor is a free online resource for homeowners. The company helps match you with a professional in your area that offers the services you need. The site provides estimated costs for services to help you understand what to expect when requesting quotes. HomeAdvisor has an online booking tool that lets you schedule a fixed-price service without picking up the phone.

    The company backs its service with a Happiness Guarantee, promising to make it right if something goes wrong.

    How does HomeAdvisor work?

    Using HomeAdvisor's site, you can search for local contractors for multiple types of home repairs or home services. HomeAdvisor prescreens each company and its owner to ensure proper licensing and customer satisfaction.

    HomeAdvisor matches you with a contractor by guiding you through a series of questions and providing you with quotes from qualified local contractors. You can also book a fixed-price service immediately online. Alternatively, you can use the search bar to search for a local page for your area and see a list of companies. HomeAdvisor provides a snapshot of each company with relevant information such as services, reviews and phone numbers.

    As you compare options, you can directly reach out to HomeAdvisor by phone or live chat.

    If you’re not yet ready to contact a local professional, read through some of HomeAdvisor’s articles about the topic you’re searching. The company’s “Resource Center” section of its website contains a library of information about home services and projects.

    HomeAdvisor cost

    HomeAdvisor is completely free to use for homeowners searching for information about contractors and professionals in their area. There is no obligation to book a service if you choose to receive quotes.

    For contractors who want to promote their business using the platform, HomeAdvisor charges a membership fee of around $300 per year, plus additional fees per lead (anywhere between $15 to $60). The exact cost depends on the business’s location and industry. This price per lead is charged even if the lead doesn’t turn into a customer.

    HomeAdvisor FAQ

    How much does it cost to be on HomeAdvisor?

    Companies pay to be featured on HomeAdvisor. They pay a membership fee and a price per lead that varies depending on industry and location. Homeowners who are searching for a professional do not need to pay.

    Is HomeAdvisor trustworthy?

    For the most part, bad reviews are typically specific to contractors, not homeowners. HomeAdvisor prescreens each business on its site and shows ratings and reviews from previous customers. The company has handled over 100 million service requests, according to its website.

    Is HomeAdvisor worth using?

    Yes. Because it’s a free site, HomeAdvisor is a great way to start your search when looking for contractors. Of course, always ask friends and family for recommendations and advice as well.

    Is HomeAdvisor free?

    HomeAdvisor is free for homeowners to use. It does charge contractors who want to be featured on the site.

    Is HomeAdvisor legit?

    Using HomeAdvisor is a good way for homeowners to find vetted contractors in their area. However, because contractors pay to be featured on the website, it doesn't offer a full picture of all the options available locally. If you’re searching for a local home repair or improvement provider and want to read reviews from other customers, we recommend using HomeAdvisor.

    I needed to find a qualified and available house painter. Very very pleased with the business that was referred. Excellent work and fair price. I was having difficulty even getting a return phone call before turning to HomeAdvisor. I have a 2600 sq ft two story wood home with an unattached office building. My job included power washing, chipped paint scraping and repairing with spackle, taping and covering the windows and doors with plastic, painting the house and office including two coats on the sunny sides of the house, and a separate trim color on all window frames and doors. Power wash one morning and entire prep and paint completed the next day. Perfection.

      We cannot express enough the professionalism that Paul ** and brother Mark ** of Cornerstone Construction brought to our project. They and their crew could not have been more perfect! We have had terrible experiences with multiple contractors since we bought our brand new home in 2020 and for the first time, we can breathe peacefully knowing we have no need to fear an unfinished outcome.

      The bid was fair and the work was completely finished with our overwhelming satisfaction before any money was given... We will always consult Paul ** on any future Construction needs we may encounter...Absolutely the best company we have ever worked with! Years of Construction experience showed in every area of the project! Please commend this company with this review! We certainly do!

      We had an excellent experience with Alamo. Bart was right on time and worked consistently. We would highly recommend Alamo. Bart came out right away, gave us a cost for the project. Started right on schedule and worked consistently and finished right on time. He did excellent work. We are very pleased.

      I went on Home Advisor website and I put in what I needed. I received a call in 10 minutes. I hired the guy and he fixed my bathroom within 2 days. This is the second time I have used them and each time I was very impressed. The first time I need attic steps and this time plumbing. When the work is done you will receive a call about the work and to see if you were satisfied.

      They made the connection to a qualified painter/drywall person by the name of Selvin **. He called within 5 minutes. Selvin ** was quick, prompt and helped me get out of a big jam. I removed the popcorn ceiling which revealed a nightmare of improper tape joints and over muddying of seams. He made Michelangelo proud, he is true artist and a very hard worker. I only had to wait 5 minutes after I put up the SOS on Angie's List. He started to work early and painted, sealed crown molding and fixed the massive imperfections that were hidden under the textured popcorn ceiling. Don't think twice about hiring this man. Remove the popcorn yourself (I did) but prepare yourself for the worst, because 90% of the time that stuff was sprayed on there for a reason.

      I needed a certified technician to assist me with my cooling system problems. I was hoping to find someone who had the necessary expertise and experience to quickly restore its functionality. Any guidance from a home advisor would have been highly appreciated. I'm pleased to report that my cooling system is now working properly again. Thank you.

      The only thing that bothered me was that someone came out to my house completely uninvited. No phone call, no nothing. I had no idea he was going to be there and it bothered me a lot, seeing someone I didn't know hanging around my property. Brandon, however, did everything right and I was totally happy with his work!

      Before service started Cox’s Landscaping replied to my search almost immediately. They visited my property the same day to see what services I was looking for. The contract seemed quite fair. Due to weird Spring weather they couldn’t start immediately. However the Weekly lawn cutting, weed whacking, blowing, was done well.

      Home Advisor was easy to use, gave me several good choices for my project, and followed up to see if I was happy with the work. The contractors contacted me quickly, provided me with detailed quotes, and began and finished the work as agreed upon. I would use Home Advisor again for another project.

      We had a nice experience about our hardwood floor refinishing. Finding contractors was so easy. Price quotes were fair. End product work quality was nice. The work was finished in 2 days. It was on time, and we are happy with the result. Thanks very much for this great service. I recommend this web page.
