Angie's List Chicago

Chicago’s Angie’s List members have long relied upon each other’s reviews and ratings when hiring contractors, home improvement experts and handymen to handle the tasks homeowner's can't or don't want to handle themselves.

From Lakeview to Naperville and from Evanston to Lincoln Park, the metro area’s diverse suburbs and neighborhoods are conveniently connected by train to the Windy City’s vibrant downtown.  Great architecture and public spaces, among them  Willis Tower, Soldier Field and the Field Museum of Natural History, have long been important in this waterfront city. Since the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the city has been building and growing. From historic brownstones to newly constructed modern high rises, residents can find a home to suit their needs.

And when they need to fix a leaky roof, a flooded basement or rotting floorboards, Chicagoland homeowners know they can find a trustworthy service provider through Angie’s List.

Find the best contractors and plumbers on Angie’s List, and keep your Chicago-area home in perfect condition. Join Angie’s List Chicago.

  • Memberships allow Angie’s List to certify that all reviews are real reviews from real members—no fake, bogus, or anonymous reviews here!
