Quality Smith


Quality Smith provides a clean and easy-to-use database of contractors. However, we had issues finding any contractor in some of the zip codes we tested. Quality Smith has a long history of doing good business but might not meet the needs of every homeowner.

KGR Contractors


KGR Contractors didn't impress us. The charge for an estimate and the lack of forthcoming website information were concerning. We also didn't have a good feel about the lack of BBB rating.

iHome Experts


iHome Experts wasn't what we expected. We found the real purpose of their business to be questionable when we called to speak to a representative. The lack of a BBB rating and short tenure were also red flags.

Today, many people use home repair and improvement referral companies to minimize the stress of finding a reliable contractor. These referral services can be a great way for you to feel confident in your search for a professional contractor.

However, not all contractor referral companies are the same. Before you jump online to find your next contractor, consider the following:

  • Database. How large is the database of contractors? Does the service offer contractors across the nation or is it limited to only specific areas?
  • Cost. Who pays for the referral service - the homeowner or the contractor? Are contractor quotes and bids free of charge?
  • History. Does the company have a long, reliable history of supplying quality contractors? What's the current Better Business Bureau rating of that company? has reviewed and ranked the best contractor services available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right contractor for your home project!
