Local business earns service award third time

GREENFIELD — Bradford Builders, Inc., of Greenfield, announces it has earned the home service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award. This award honors service professionals who have maintained exceptional service ratings and reviews on Angie’s List in 2017.

“The service providers that receive our Angie’s List Super Service Award demonstrate the level of excellence that members have come to expect,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “These pros are top-notch and absolutely deserve recognition for the trustworthy and exemplary customer service they exhibited in the past year and overall.”

Brad Arthur, owner of Bradford Builders, said he was thankful to be recognized.

“We’ve been in business for 33 years and have always relied on customer reviews and referrals,” Arthur said. “Our clients believe in us and tell their friends about the quality customer care we deliver. It’s very humbling, yet satisfying, when they take the time to tell Angie’s List about us, also. We certainly wouldn’t be where we are without our clients.”

This is the third time, and the second year in a row, that Bradford Builders has earned the Super Service Award.

Angie’s List Super Service Award 2017 winners have met strict eligibility requirements, which include maintaining an “A” rating in overall grade, recent grade and review period grade. The SSA award winners must be in good standing with Angie’s List, pass a background check, record a current trade license attestation and abide by Angie’s List operational guidelines.

Service company ratings are updated continually on Angie’s List as new, verified consumer reviews are submitted. Companies are graded on an A through F scale in multiple fields ranging from price to professionalism to punctuality.
