Borrow Some Experience
More than 2 million households nationwide check Angie's List reviews to find the best local service providers, like roofers, plumbers, handymen, mechanics, doctors and dentists. And that's just the short list. We collect ratings and reviews on more than 720 different services. The people who join Angie's List are just like you — real folks looking for a way to find trustworthy companies that perform high-quality work.
"Ratings, Reviews and (Sometimes) Revenge"
Angie's List members submit more than 60,000 reviews every month about the companies they hire. They include incredible details about how the project went (including cost), and grade the company's response time, price, professionalism and quality of work -- good or bad -- on an A to F scale. Angie's List members will tell you if a crew was conscious of children and pets, cleaned up after themselves or just totally botched the job.
Keeping it honest
Because Angie's List relies on its members' experiences, reviews aren't submitted anonymously. Of course members' information is kept confidential on Angie's List, but reviews are made available to the companies who have been reviewed. Since there are always two sides to every story, companies can respond to reviews, helping make sure that members get all the information they need to make a hiring decision. Additionally, members can only report on a service experience once every six months, ensuring no one can "stack the deck" in favor of or against a company. Finally, all reviews submitted by members go through a team of Angie's List staff who look for any irregularities or red flags. Occasionally, we catch service companies reporting on their own businesses. Those companies are reprimanded and the reports are promptly and permanently removed from the List.
