No pay-to-play listings
Our top spot always goes to the service provider who meets the needs of the consumer most, not who pays us the most. No sponsored listings.
No mystical methodology
We survey consumers in every category and weight our rating criteria according to what's most important for them. No behind-the-scenes funny business.
No low-quality content
Real (subject-matter expert) humans research our content for real consumer pain points. No handing over work to content farms or AI generators.

No annoying ads that push the content around while you're trying to read
No countdown timers or FOMO-inducing sales tactics
No auto-playing videos because, like, why would we do that?
No email sign-ups that pop up when you're trying to close the tab
No selling contact information to spammers and scammers
No flashing "buy now" buttons and huge "call now" banners
No jumping through hoops to unsubscribe from an email list

Keeping things fresh

We've got a constant pulse on consumers' evolving needs (and provider offerings) in the categories our readers trust us to cover. Check back often as we add more helpful resources, expand our subject-matter expertise, and bring clarity to other complex service industries.

Industry analysis

We regularly commission studies to understand how changing dynamics in home services affect consumer sentiment and behavior. With a deeper understanding of consumers, we're better able to advocate on their behalf.
