We are looking for talented, local remodeling companies and independent contractors in Central Illinois to join the IRC Preferred Contractors network.

Performance Score

Contractors are required to maintain an overall performance score of 4/5 or higher to receive the benefits of IRC Preferred Contractor status. There are 3 ways for IRC Preferred Contractors to influence their overall performance score:

Customer Surveys

At the close of each project, we ask the homeowner to provide feedback on the services they received.

Internal Contractor Assessments

We regularly evaluate the overall performance of IRC Preferred Contractors.

Positive Reviews

IRC Preferred Contractors have the opportunity to earn a $50 bonus for each 5 star review on Google, Angie’s List, and BBB, or recommendation on Facebook.
