About the award
HomeStars has been recognizing home improvement professionals with the Best of Award for the past 8 years. We have a comprehensive process for validating all reviews before they are published. Winners are selected based on several criteria including the HomeStars Recommendation Meter algorithm, which considers recency, quality and quantity of reviews as well as third party information on business registration and credit rating, so we can ensure we are awarding only the best companies.
New this year
We have made a change to award companies in the current year, rather than the previous year. So today we awarded the Best of 2016, which are based on all the reviews published throughout 2015. (Historically, we awarded a Best of Award for the previous year, which meant the award was already a year old when you got it! For example, last year, in February 2015 we awarded the Best of 2014, recognizing the work they did in 2014.)
We have updated all awarded companies on the site to reflect this change for all previous years as well. So if you also won a BOA in 2010 and 2012, your listing now shows you as a winner for 2011, 2013 and 2016. The Toolkit in your company dashboard now contains BOA logos for all the years you won the award, shifted ahead one year. If you have any questions, or would like to obtain an updated printed BOA certificate for any year you won, please email email@example.com
This year, awards are linked to our Recommendation Meter which means if a winning company’s meter drop below the green area, the BOA icons will be removed. If the company’s meter goes back up into the green area, the icons will come back.
Congratulations once again to all of our winners. Keep up the great work!
