Important information on reviews

We take customer reviews seriously. These are a valuable indicator of a tradesman's reputation on Ratetrades. Most homeowners depend on these reviews when deciding who to hire.

We obsessively check all feedback.

Every review is manually screened before it is approved and posted to the site. In addition to moderator screening we have incorporated special fake review algorithms into our code to detect and remove any suspicious content.
