How to Write a Good Review for a Contractor

by Justin Lewis

Hi, my name is Justin Lewis and I’m the CEO of Business Optimizer. We help small businesses, including contractors improve their websites and search engine results.

One of the most valuable things a contractor can receive from a customer is feedback, especially if shared online. If you’ve had the pleasure to work with a local contractor that has provided a good service, I’d suggest sharing your experiences publicly. You’ll be helping the contractor grow their business and show them generosity for their hard work.

What to Include in Your Review

When you’re writing your review be sure to express the following:

  • What the problem was
  • How they solved your problem
  • The quality of work
  • If possible, include a picture

Think back to when you were doing your own research on the contractor, you likely looked into what other people were saying about them. By leaving an online review you’re helping other people with similar problems find a contractor that can provide a good service and encouraging others to share their experiences.

The Best Websites/Apps to Write Reviews for Contractors

  • Google
  • Yelp
  • Facebook
  • Home Advisor
  • Angieslist
  • Houzz
  • Guild Quality
  • Porch

The contractor will need to have an account on the platforms above. If they don’t have an account, I’d suggest contacting them and letting them know you want to share feedback online using a specific platform.
