Thursday at 10: Questions raised over how HomeAdvisor pre-screens contractors it recommends

Posted: Updated:

News 5 warns you time and time again to do you homework before hiring a contractor. 

HomeAdvisor promises to do the work for free by recommending pre-screened, licensed contractors for various projects.

Thursday night at 10 p.m., News 5 investigates whether HomeAdvisor really screens its contractors before sending them to knock on your door. Consumer experts say the best way to check out a contractor is to not only read reviews online, but check with your regional building office to make sure the person you hire has a valid license.
