I have used Home Advisor several times and always have wound up with a great team and a job well done in the end. … Matter a fact, several houses were painted or sided on my block, and the Home Advisor recommended service company outperformed and came in at a better price.

I needed a small backyard design and renovation project. ... Once the job was finished, I was astonished by the end product. They worked fast, on-time, took care of every detail, and left everything clean at the end of each day. I LOVE my new backyard! You definitely get what you pay for.

What is HomeAdvisor?

HomeAdvisor is an 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 asking for quotes from various companies. HomeAdvisor has an online booking tool that lets you schedule service without picking up the phone.

Services available on HomeAdvisor include maid services, plumbing repairs, lawn care, electrical services, general contracting and more. In general, you can book any home-related work through HomeAdvisor.

How does HomeAdvisor work?

Using HomeAdvisor's site, you can search for local contractors for multiple types of home repairs or home services. Companies pay to be listed, but HomeAdvisor’s experts prescreen each company and its owner to ensure legitimacy and safety. As you compare options, you can directly reach out to the company within the site itself and be instantly connected with an expert.

HomeAdvisor costs

HomeAdvisor is completely free to use for homeowners searching for information about contractors and professionals in their area. There are no strings attached in terms of cost or having to move forward with a service.

For contractors who want to promote their business using the platform, HomeAdvisor charges around $300 per year and additional fees per lead it sends to a business (anywhere between $15 to $60).

This price per lead is charged even if the lead doesn’t turn into a customer. For many contractors, the immense volume of leads and opportunities is worth the cost because it’s more simple and straightforward than other advertising strategies.

HomeAdvisor FAQ

How much does it cost to be on HomeAdvisor?
It costs about $300 per year to be featured on HomeAdvisor. Companies also pay for each lead sent their way, even if that lead does not become a customer.
Can I trust HomeAdvisor?
For the most part, bad reviews are typically specific to contractors, not homeowners. That being said, you should still complete your own research after you find a company.
Is HomeAdvisor worth using?
Yes. Since 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?

HomeAdvisor is a good way for customers to find vetted and screened contractors in their area. However, because contractors pay to be featured on the website, it does not 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 had a AC company that was doing a maintenance check on my unit. The serviceman informed me that my unit was leaking Freon and the coils needed replacing. He informed me that the unit was 7 years old and NOT under warranty. He suggested a new unit for $5,600. I first said okay and they said they could do it that afternoon. It got to be late Friday and I had company coming so called and ask that it be postponed to Monday. Then I decide to get a second opinion. I google AC repair in area and got HomeAdvisor.

Several companies responded but couldn’t come until Monday. Then, Essential Heating and Air responded and said they were in the area and could come in about an hour. They were a God sent. He checked the entire unit, found that it was only 4 years old and still under complete warranty. He found no leaks, in fact unit was in excellent shape. He added Freon and will check it again in 3 months. He saved me a lot of money. I appreciate his prompt response and honesty. Needless to say I’ve canceled the original company. Thank you.

    5 stars is not enough for this company, they are 100 stars hands down. I hired this company to service and repair my furnace. Sent service person Joe to my home. This man is AMAZING.... Caring and compassionate, worked with me to do what he can to get me up and running. Very respectful of my home, very professional and extremely kind. He left my home clean as when he found it. He did a wonderful job and got my heat working. I would never use any other company after dealing with A-Absolute they are now my forever contractors. They know what they are doing and get the job done quickly. I would recommend this company to anyone who wants a fair price for high quality work. Explained everything in a way I could understand and gave great tips on keeping up with my furnace. Joe is the BEST!!! GO WITH THIS COMPANY YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED... STELLER WORK....

    Original review: Sept. 20, 2020

    The clog in the house was so bad that gurgling was heard in the pipes for over a week from 1 load of laundry. The water from this load of laundry had come up into the toilet and shower in the basement. This had been a reoccurring problem for years. I was unable to get a plumber from the phone book so I went online and threw up a Hail Mary out of sheer desperation. HomeAdvisor popped up and I filled out my problem. I was given the name of a plumber to try, but became skittish and didn't call. This plumber contacted me within the hour and my problem was solved by the end of the day. I have never been happier with a plumber in my life. HomeAdvisor helped me find the perfect solution and gently guided me to the finish line. I will be forever in their debt AND I highly recommend this site to anyone needing help. I know what it's like to want to tear your hair out (LOL)!

    Hired Contractor Andrew ** through HomeAdvisor after receiving 2 quotes from Pluming Companies in the area which were way out of our budget but we need our boiler and water heater replaced due to a faulty old boiler that caused a water pipe to burst last winter. Andrew responded within minutes of my submission to HomeAdvisor, he came to our house within minutes, he was prompt, personable, honest and professional. We didn't have to wait for his quote like I had to for the others. I had waited up to 1 month for my quote from the initial company that came out to assess the damage and do some repairs on the faulty boiler (to the tune of $2000.00-patch job), which didn't even work!!

    I have to admit both my husband and I were skeptical about hiring an independent contractor because we were worried that they would not have the necessary skills or credentials needed to complete the job. Once I got the quote from Andrew I did a search on him and was able to see that he indeed had MP license and years of experience, which made us feel more comfortable with our decision to hire him. He completed the job in 2 days and earlier than expected. I would definitely recommend using HomeAdvisor for home improvements and repairs to friends and family. Thank you!

    Skeptical and Hesitant at First; Now More Willing to Try Them. I think my subject says it all. Initially I was skeptical and very hesitant because I did not want numerous companies calling me. I prefer having a list, research them a bit, and then call the company myself. Well, I really need yard care and maintenance because my person was no longer working residential. So I went online and applied to Home Advisor. I was given several names along with a brief statement about each. No calling me, and the process worked for two reasons no excessive company calls and the list of companies were top notch. I could make the decisions without added pressure. Now I am more inclined to use Home Advisor. The way the world is today, I will always be a bit cautious, but I believe that I can grow to trust Home Advisor.

    I’ve used HomeAdvisor for 2 home projects now after buying a new home and in both instances it’s been very helpful in finding reputable contractors and getting the best price for the work I need done. I plan to use it for finding contractors for all home improvement jobs going forward!

    LeonPro was excellent! We are very pleased with the work. They were punctual, honorable, professional, and very capable. Thank you very much. Our deck looks much better. It looks better than we thought it would, as a matter of fact. I would recommend LeonPro to friends, and indeed I will if the opportunity presents itself.

    We found a contractor to paint 3 rooms. We were contacted the same day as our request and had the work done in the same week. The painter did an excellent job and was competitively priced. Great way to get connected with contractors who want the work.

    I have used Home Advisor in the past. They were the first ones I turned to for my next project. I will use them again. Easy step process to find the contractor you are looking for. The contractors get back to you right away.

    My roll up door crumpled in half. Wouldn’t go up or down. Every place I called wanted a trip charge. Some would apply that trip charge to the repair, others wouldn’t. I reached Miguel and he was so patient with me and his prices were very fair. It was around 5 PM so he asked if he could come over in the morning. He was very prompt!! Not only did he fix the door but he checked other parts of it to make sure everything was working and it’s beautiful. If you would like a very nice man to help you with your door, at a fair price, and leaves it in perfect condition then Miguel is your man!
