It’s been a long few months and Eastside residents have spent a lot of time at home looking at all of the upgrades, improvements, and renovations they want to do – such as updating family spaces, adding a home office, applying a fresh coat of paint, or simply washing the windows. And they are not alone – recent surveys have found that more than one third of homeowners are in the process of or planning to do a home improvement project over the next 90 days, and that more space and updated kitchens are topping the list of desired improvements.
COVID-19 restrictions are easing up in Washington, but the recommendation is to continue staying home as much as possible. Local business owners, particularly those who own small home improvement services or repair shops, are struggling to stay afloat. This makes now the perfect time to start a home improvement project and to hire a local home service professional who calls the Seattle area home.
Selecting a trusted vendor can be tricky. While friends and family can be a good referral source, your needs may be very different from theirs. And many guidebooks and online referral services only list companies that have paid to be part of the guide – regardless of their track record or reviews.
For the first time, homeowners on the Eastside have access to a free guide of top-rated, local home service professionals in dozens of specialties, including kitchen or basement remodeling, deck building, and landscaping. Best Pick Reports is different from other guides because local professionals must apply to be included and are individually evaluated based on thousands of Seattle-area customer interviews. They only qualify to be listed in Best Pick Reports if they receive top ratings from local homeowners who have used their services.
By following COVID-19 safety procedures, starting a home project now can still be safe. Sanitizing procedures, masks, and social distancing can all help a homeowner feel more confident and secure as their upgrade is completed.
Choosing a professional from Best Pick Reports comes with an added benefit – the Best Pick Guarantee. Projects completed by a verified service provider will be guaranteed up to $2,500 if the work is not satisfactory.
