Our Process

How We Rank Local Contractors

We believe there are a few very important factors that make a contractor either good to work with or bad to work with. We take an impartial look at many different contractors in each market, and list our top ranking contractors. We don't accept payments to list contractors, and you can't pay to advertise your company on our site. We can't give away all of the details in how we rank our contractors, but heres a few of the main factors:


Experienced contractors are great for two main reasons, it is often highly skilled projects and if they've been around for a long time they must be doing something right. If a contractor performs poor work, or constantly rips off customers, they aren't likely to stay in business very long. Those are just a few of the reasons why experience factors into ContractorRank.


We know how important it is to hire a contractor you can trust. We look for contractors that are reliable, honest and stick to their word. Contractors need to show up on time, and have a history of completing projects on time.

Transparent Pricing

We believe that contractors that do their best to bid accurately and stay under budget should win more jobs. Most customers biggest fear when hiring a contractor is hidden fees or their project going way over budget. There are far too many contractors that bid low and go over budget.

Customer Satisfaction

One of the best ways to make sure that a contractor is reputable is by checking out their reviews and what their past clients say about them. You need to be wary of online reviews, as many companies post fake reviews in hopes to acquire more customers.

License & Insurance

Hiring licensed and insured contractors is important for a variety of different reasons. If something happens to a contractor on your property you can be held liable, which is why contractors have insurance. Uninsured contractors can lead to a ton of headaches.

These are just a few of the main factors that we take into account when we rank local contractors. For more information, to give feedback on one of our ranked contractors, or if you would like to recommend a contractor contact us at feedback@contractorrank.com.
