    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.

    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!

      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 have never heard of Home Advisor until a couple months ago, and I found the website through Google. This site is simply amazing if you are looking to get a specific job completed around the house or office. After using Home Advisor once, I was so pleased with the results, options, and businesses they recommended. Home Advisor makes it so easy to find someone for a job you think doesn't exist, and they show you the ones with the most reviews. I have been able to get everything I need done around the office thanks to Home Advisor.

      One spring broke on garage door on a Friday. Internet search led to 3 choices by Home Advisor. One gave an immediate quote. One scheduled an appointment online and one called minutes after the search. Precision set up and appointment for the next day, a Saturday. The technician called prior to arrival, the company texted and e-mailed before arrival. The technician showed up on time, had 3 estimates depending on the minimum work and parts required and 2 estimates that included additional work that would have a longer warranty. The work was done immediately within 2 hours and the repair appears flawless.

      Good service. However, I don’t remember having an ability to cancel out after starting the process. Data seems to go forward, even if form is left incomplete. I thought the form was rendered invalid, but a day later I got a call from an electrician. Things worked out.

      Installation of ceiling light in bedroom that previously had no ceiling fixture. Electrician had to do wiring in attic and also installed dimmer switch. Mike **, electrician gave us accurate estimate, did the work promptly, was skilled and knowledgeable, and cleaned up well. I highly recommend him.

      Very helpful and put me in touch with an exceptional contractor. I would recommend Home Advisor for all your needs. They followed up on my needs and were very easy to use. They provided a well informed service within time frame needed.

      I was contacted very quickly with three recommendations, one of which we engaged. However, after that first contact I continued to get calls from other 'advisors' who seemed unaware that I had already been contacted. That is the only negative part of our experience

      Top Notch Tree Company provided excellent and reasonable service. Crew worked hard to remove a 45 foot large oak tree. We would recommend this tree service to anyone. Home Advisor was successful in getting 3 qualified tree service companies to contact us within a few hours. We agreed to hire Top Notch on the same day that we listed the job with Home Advisor.
