How Much Should Online Reviews Matter

How Much Should Online Reviews Matter When Choosing A Chicagoland Suburbs Home Improvement Company?

In the bad old days of home improvement, a home remodeling company could get away with poor service and lousy results and still tell homeowners that they have “good service and quality products.”

But over the last decade or so, the playing field has leveled, and homeowners can check online reviews to find out how customers REALLY FEEL about a company.

Online reviews can be a great source of independent information and we highly recommend checking them out before hiring any contractor serving the Chicagoland suburbs.


It’s Also Important To Check How Many Reviews A Company Has

There is a ‘catch’ with online reviews, however. To trust them, we recommend there be at least 50. 100+ is even better.

This is because when there are fewer reviews, it’s harder to know if the information is real. If a company has 5 reviews, maybe they were posted by an uncle, 3 friends, and the owner. That’s not going to give you a true picture.

It also prevents you from getting a negative picture that may not be warranted. A small handful of bad reviews among 100+ reviews may tell you more about that particular reviewer than the company.

We’re pleased to be able to say that we have a terrific track record of reviews online. For example, on Google Reviews we have 135+ reviews and the overwhelming majority our 5-star raves.

We encourage you to read them for yourself and see that there are common themes in our reviews.
