NEVER EVER EVER use HOME ADVISOR aka SERVICE MAGIC for any home repairs/reno EVER. This is a website that is supposedly there to help you find qualified, trustworthy contractors to come work for you.
When we had an issue with a contractor (left our home covered in drywall dust and drywall mud, broke my $200 vacuum cleaner, did not complete the job), they gave us the run-around for almost 4 months, have ignored multiple emails and phone calls for WEEKS, have lied to us, misread contracts, "lost" emails and photo documentation, and just been downright rude. NEVER USE THEM.
Monetary Loss: $1000.
