When your home needs repairs, it goes without saying that you want the best team possible to complete the job. Many contractor review sites, like Angie’s List, HomeAdvisor, and Thumbtack offer Top Ten lists of the best popcorn removal contractors in Orlando in an effort to connect you with the right team. But before you select the #1 ranked company on your chosen review site, you might want to double check your sources.

Paying for Top Spots

Most review sites allow business partners to pay for a membership to receive specific benefits. For sites like HomeAdvisor, these benefits include boosted rankings in their search results, getting their names in front of researchers first. So, while that profile you’re viewing is listed as a trusted partner, that might not mean much more than that they were willing to shell out a few extra dollars for a membership.

Not Many Ratings

It’s also a good idea to check how many ratings those five-star companies have. A company with one five-star review will come up before a company with 50 reviews averaging at 4.5 stars. Maybe the company is brand new, or is just getting their online presence set up – it happens! Just be sure to dig a little deeper before selecting the #1 company on the list.

How to Find the Real Winners

Without a doubt, sites like HomeAdvisor can be valuable tools in your search for the right popcorn removal contractor for your job – we just want to encourage you to use a variety of sources. The best way to tell if a company does a good job is to see it in person, so keep an eye on your friends’ and neighbors’ homes when they get repairs. Always make sure you speak to a member of the company and get a walkthrough in person.
