Since choosing a paint contractor is difficult another great way to find out about a company’s reputation is to read their online reviews. You will find a lot of small companies that have a 5-star rating but only have one or two reviews. It’s not just about who is the highest-rated, it’s also about who has a long term positive online reputation. All companies that have been in business for ten to fifteen years will have some less than 5-star reviews, don’t let that cloud your search. It is essential to read all the reviews positive and negative to see how the contractor worked to resolve any issues. It’s also crucial to check out the companies reviews on multiple different platforms. Many reviews in the construction industry involve either money or quality of repairs. If you are looking for the best deal, you might weight bad comments on quality differently. However, if you want high quality, that usually comes at a price, and you might weight negative comments regarding price a little lighter than people shopping on price only. Regardless, make sure you evaluate more than the overall rating and be sure to read more the just a few reviews.
