Default About HomeStars

Does anyone know HomeStars? How would you rate their services and the one from the contractors they are using?

Thanks.

I've used them to look at contractors ratings before. You can't rely on just a single rating site. Combine HomeStars with others such as Google Rating, and most importantly, your gut feeling. Unfortunately that's the market we are in now, with the shortage of labors.

Also be careful, it seems to me that the ones with ALL good ratings are able to somehow block or "resolve" the negative ratings. Just a hunch, but we all know people are more motivated to complain after having an issue, so when I see a company with 100% positive ratings it just seems fishy.

Again I haven't looked into this, but used a company recently that had the most incredible Homestars reviews I have ever seen literally not a single complaint, and we had TONS of issues with them.

These companies know how important these review sites are for business. Something not adding up for me, curious to know how it really works! Good luck
