Houzz is a fake. I wrote a legitimate review of a company I used to remodel my kitchen that Houzz gave 5* to.
They were horrible. The didn't know what they were doing from installing my new dishwasher to absolutely ruining the back-splash they installed. The touchup work was shoddy and the granite work was terrible. These were not professionals.
I never saw my review of the company after submitting it to Houzz, so I am convinced that companies pay Houzz and they only post the 5* reviews.
Unfortunately Yelp is not better. In fact Yelp deleted my account after I posted an unfavorable review about this construction company.
Review about: Houzz Construction Review Listing.
Reason of review: Poor customer service.
I didn't like: I gave this contractor no stars.
