Why Should You Hire A Google Guaranteed Home Services Contractor

Over the years, the popular search engine giant Google has worked on positioning itself as something more than a platform solely utilized as an information source. In addition to rolling out great new features like Google posts and messages, the tech giant introduced the concept of Google Guarantee around a decade ago. This new lead generation service is gaining immense popularity in the world of internet advertisement.

Have you ever noticed that some of the businesses on your search engine results pages (SERPs) are labelled as ‘Google Guaranteed’? This is a way of showing that the business under question comes with a guarantee by Google.

But the question here is what exactly does a Google Guarantee mean and why is it so important?

AKRoN Roofing has been Google Guaranteed since the certification began in Calgary in March 2021. In addition to this, we are also proud to have several other accreditations that you can read about here.

As a Google Guaranteed Home Services contractor, we believe that it is upon us to help you understand what this means and why you should hire a Google Guaranteed Service Contractor.

What Does Google Guaranteed Mean?

With the Google Guarantee program, Google aims to make things easier for you in terms of decision making. Google conducts background checks on businesses. They use their findings to identify reliable companies and they vouch for qualified contractors and other service providers.

Before the Google Guarantee program, there was no way to find out whether the business was appearing on top of the search engine due to its authentic and high-end services or their deep pockets.

However, thanks to this platform, only the best-qualified and experienced businesses will appear on the top. We are proud to say that AKRoN Roofing belongs to this category as well.

Note that not all businesses can qualify for the Google Guarantee badge. Instead, businesses have to meet some standards of reliability and commendable work. Since Google is backing up the business experience and guarantees that the company will be performing well, they need concrete proof of their work ethic.

Background Checks

If you are still not sure why you should hire a Google Guaranteed business, here are some of the checks that Google performs before handing over the badge.

  • Business entity check
  • Business owner background check
  • Service professional background check

However, the nature of the background checks also greatly depends on where the service is located and the type of business.

Third-Party Background Checks

In some cases, a business owner can apply for background check equivalency verification. This usually happens when the owner background checks their service professionals in a way that meets Google’s standards.

After analyzing the background checks and the situation, Google can approve the request. In this case, the business is guaranteed by Google without any further screening.


Google requires the applicants to hold applicable state, provincial and/or country-level licenses for businesses. Moreover, they are required to confirm that all the workers of the organization are appropriately licensed.

In situations where the business lies on the border, it might have to get licenses for both states to get the Google Guarantee badge.

Some of the benefits of hiring a Google Guaranteed Services Contractor are:

  • Google Guarantee means the company has all the required licenses.
  • Google also looks into ratings and reviews from people who hired Local Services providers.
  • The business guarantees up to $2,000 money-back if the customer is dissatisfied.
