BUILDISTAR RATING

Buildi’s star rating is based on a unique balanced rating system covering a variety of different areas. We ensure that all builders are tested against a strict set of rules before they are issued with a rating. We then decide whether to accept or decline their request to join our panel.

As part of our rating system, we pulse check our builders on a regular basis to ensure they are congruent with their particular rating. The result of this evaluation will be an increase or decrease of rating. This will also lead to builders losing their spot on Buildi’s panel.
