I heartily recommend the Home Owners Club 4/3/2007

After more than 10 years of hit-and-miss hiring of contractors, I became a member of the Home Owners Club. I couldn’t be happier. It’s a contractor referral service (one of the oldest in the country, according to their Web site). Yes, the contractors they recommend have hourly rates at the higher end of the scale, but you know the work will always be done right, and that the HOC will make things right if you’re not happy. In my book, that’s worth a few extra bucks. After interviewing three asphalt contractors on my own for a large driveway job (I called about eight, but only three showed up, and they left me feeling very concerned ), I signed up at the Home Owners Club. The asphalt contractor they sent was very sharp, showed up on time and had great suggestions on how to fix some longtime drainage problems. The crew and the work was outstanding. They actually finished one day earlier than they had predicted. The cost was about 5% more than what I would have paid the derelicts I found on my own. Since then, I’ve also used the Home Owners Club for two plumbing projects. For one of those projects, the plumber did great work (figured out an ingenious way to move my water heater to another room by taping into existing piping, which meant no walls had to be torn open), I felt the prices the plumber charged might be a bit too high (plumbers charge outrageous rates so I wasn’t sure). The HOC reviewed the bill, agreed the rates were too high and got the plumber to reduce my cost. No more phone book cold-calling and wondering if I’m going to get ripped off. Now I just call the HOC. They also offer an “online membership” option for those who live outside Washington state. more

Great resource 10/4/2006

We have been members of the Home Owners Clubs for the last 6 years. We've used them for virtually all of our home repair, maintenance and construction needs. One benefit of the club is that you call them with your need and they can have several companies come to give you bids. So, you make one call- they get you many options. 99% of all the work done by vendors they've sent has been flawless. One project, our roof, had a couple of issues. However, the beauty of working with them is that they hold the funds to the contractor until you say you're satisfied with the work. In our case they sent the original roofer back to fix one problem. When I wasn't 100% satisfied with the "fix" I asked them to send someone else to fix it, which they did and I did not pay that person. The funds came from what would have gone to the other roofer. In the end all was well and it was minimal inconvenience for me. Any tradesman that gets a bad review from customers is dropped from their recommended list. We love the Home Owners Club! more

concept good - execution - bad - save yourself the annual 9/28/2006

fee of joining the home owner's club and use forums like these instead. I give it one star because when everything was said and done, home owner's finally came through and had quality plumbing come and fix a job that roto rooter had botched ( and home owner's had referred ME to them!) - BUT that was only after numerous phone calls to roto-rooter, home owner's, the better business bureau and the attorney general's office down in Olympia. I was not able to use my bathroom sink for approximately 4 months! And that was after multiple visits from various roto-rooter plumbers. Plus one of the plumbers from roto rooter hit my car, putting it in the shop for about 10 days ( see my other review about H and I automotive - LOVE them). My favorite quote to homeowner's while I was going through this ordeal - "I don't need to pay you money to refer me to someone incompetent - I can just find them for free in the phone book......." more

A Racket! 4/7/2006

I should not give them even one star! My experience was not good. We sought out a couple of contractors whose estimates came in a lot higher than others outside of the network. One of the bids included items that did not need attending to at all. I think that some of the subs take advantage of the endorsement. We found a general contractor who has a relatively small operation and really high quality sub-contactors as well as a couple of regular employees that can do almost any minor/major repair. Kvamme Construction is the best! Dave Kvamme is the owner and is so nice. He and his men are very trustworthy and polite. more

They stand behind every job 12/12/2005

Belonging to the Home Owner's Club is a fantastic way to find the best quality contractors to do work on your home in Seattle. It is very affordable (about $48 a year) and if you need anything from your windows washed to new electrical wiring to someone to lay a floor, these guys have the right people to perform the work. The companies they send to you are highly reputable, and have to be in business for a minimum of 5 years. If anything goes wrong The Home Owner's Club will mediate between you and the contractor, but so far, every single person they have recommended to us has done outstanding work. They have been in business since 1959, so they really know what they are doing. If you have a home in King or Snohomish County and your husband isn't particularly handy, this is an invaluable service. Thank you. more

So helpful! 12/1/2005

As a new homeowner, this is one of the best things I've done. They've set up three repairs for me, all much less hassle than searching for my own, and all done promptly, cleanly, well. more

we've been pleased 7/26/2005

we've been members of this club for 5 years now and have had about a dozen different contractors out to do bids on projects. every one has been very professional, clean, nice, etc. this is a big improvement over what I had been doing before (yellow pages and little nickel ads). We've hired 3 dif't contractors from the club to perform tasks and have nothing but good to say about the way the club has helped out and the quality of folks they've sent. more

Homeowners Club Deals with the Contractors for You 6/9/2005

Before I found the Homeowners Club, I'd lost countless hours and many many dollars to contractors who never finished the job, didn't show up when they said they would, or kept raising the cost of the job. Homeowners Club eliminates all these problems. For $48/yr, you get a service that recommends reputable contractors for your job. You call them and tell them what you need, and they have contractors call you. (Even if it's an emergency job.) Once you have all the estimates you want, you sign the one you want to go with and send the signed estimate to the club. No more pouring through the phone book and asking everyone you know if they've ever used Andy's Plumbing service. Even better, you don't pay the contractor. You pay Homeowners Club -- only when the job is completed to your satisfaction -- and then the club pays the contractor. more
