Each Best Pick company has been thoroughly reviewed via an unparalleled, independent certification process. Inclusion in the guide is by invitation alone, and that invitation is extended only if a company has met strict qualifying criteria. Companies are not able to buy space in the guide or pay for a good rating – they are individually evaluated based on hundreds of customer interviews, must achieve an “A” rating and must have all licenses and insurance verified and up to date.

After spending a significant amount of time at home over the past several months, many homeowners may be thinking about home improvement projects they are ready to get started on – whether adding a home office, updating family spaces, adding a fresh coat of paint, or washing windows. In fact, recent research from National Association of Realtors shows that 67% of homeowners are either contemplating a remodeling project or have already spent money on one. 

Best Pick Reports includes recommended contractors in many different specialties, including electrical work, plumbing, heating/air conditioning, and painting. Homeowners in the Seattle and Tacoma metro areas will receive their Best Pick Reports guide via U.S. mail, or they can access the directory online anytime.  Best Pick Reports’ referral guide stands behind the work of the professionals

These master carpenters often were unwilling to teach me anything, but by befriending them, I learned more than I would have never learned at any university or school.

If you don't know anyone with the experience and most homeowners don't, we need to refer back to the books and some of these books are written by experienced master carpenters who understand the value of these tricks of the trade.

These books can be found at your local library or purchased at a community bookstore. They have been a wealth of information for myself and others for years now.
