For each annual Best Pick Reports® publication, we analyze thousands of new surveys with homeowners who had firsthand experience with home service providers. All surveys are independent and are conducted by our sister company GuildQuality, the building and home improvement industry's leader in third-party customer satisfaction surveying.
Getting referrals from your neighbors is a traditional method of identifying a company you feel you can trust, but a limited number of referrals does not always tell the whole story. This is why we take word of mouth to the next level by collecting thousands of homeowner surveys each year.
By proactively seeking homeowner feedback, we make sure that the reviews we use to rate companies are not from a biased, vocal minority, as is commonly the case with other online review guides and websites. Furthermore, companies cannot buy a good rating; the only way they can obtain the Best Pick designation is to earn it by having many satisfied customers and good reviews each year.
