Reviews & Ratings
Save Time Thanks to Feedback
If you run a Google search for a contractor, you'll likely be overwhelmed by your options. Many places are lucky to have numerous contractors serving their areas. Rather than playing roulette with your options or scientifically selecting a contractor through a fun game of eeny-meeny-miny-moe, online reviews allow you to create a curated list of qualified contractors from whom you can get quotes.
Take the Guesswork Out of Hiring
When it comes to big decisions, we tend to ask our friends or family for their input. We may even look on Facebook for references. Check out our Facebook reviews!
Provide Insight into the Quality of Their Work
When you're looking for a product, it's nice to be able to see it in person and get a feel for the quality. Reviews can add to this feeling by sharing an intimate look at how other consumers felt about the product or a service. That sharing of real-life experience is invaluable for contractors. A roofing contractor will be at your home for a few days installing your new roof. After that, you'll have a reminder of their work for a decade or two (and possibly longer). Gleaning insight from online reviews can help you make a choice that helps you add value to your home -- not detract from it.
Highlights the Character of Those Involved
Who you hire matters. Not all companies share the same values or the same quality of craftsmanship. Often, this comes down to the character of those running the company and doing the work. Online reviewers have no problem sharing whether or not they liked a contractor. These comments can help paint a picture of the character of said contractors.
Introduces You to Companies You May Not Have Found Otherwise
Google is a great tool. Unfortunately, many of us never make it past the first page of search results. In addition, the first several results are generally ads. If you consistently pick the first couple results, however, you may be missing out.
