It's always going to happen, that these sites will inevitably have "fly-by-night" renovators who post false reviews and pictures.
It is a policy of mine to always take before and after pictures of every job. These pictures should be readily available in a portfolio.
Better still, if the contractor is reputable, they should have at least one client who would be able to show the completed work as it relates to the photos.
A general rule of thumb in any business transaction. If there seems to be any doubt in the decision making, keep looking until you feel comfortable. Trust the facts, and make sure they are backed up with concrete evidence.
