popcorn removal in orlando on homeadvisor 5 bestIf you’ve been shopping around for a home improvement contractor, you’ve probably come across HomeAdvisor’s “Best 5” reports for contractors in your area. HomeAdvisor does have this proprietary system as an advantage over other review sites like Angie’s List and Thumbtack, allowing potential customers to get a broad overview of what their project might look like. But even though the presentation is neat and tidy, there may be a few things missing.

The Orlando popcorn removal team at New Ceilings wants you to be totally prepared for your upcoming project – that’s why we only provide estimates in person. If you’re only going by the information HomeAdvisor gives you, here’s what you’re missing:


  • The scope of the average job. One of the sections you’ll find in HomeAdvisor’s “Best 5” report is a graph of the average price for the project. While this is a handy figure to have on hand, it doesn’t take into account the scope of the jobs they recorded, or how many ceilings needed to be knocked down. You’ll probably get a price with a huge range: a current search for Popcorn Removal in Orlando brings a range of $350 to $3,700.
  • All of the contractors in your area. As we’ve mentioned in previous blogs, the contractors who come to the top of the list on review sites are often the ones who pay for account. This means you’re probably missing a number of the highly regarded companies in your area who just haven’t signed up for a professional account yet.
  • Photos of reviews. Sure, reading that someone had an enjoyable experience with their popcorn removal is good enough, but seeing the results takes you to an entirely new level. HomeAdvisor’s reviews are devoid of photos, and for something like retexturing a ceiling, you want to know that the team you choose can apply a smooth finish just as expertly as drop trowel.
