I have about as much faith in Angie as I do in the BBB.  Both have a financial incentive to promote the businesses who pay them.

I'm not a big fan of Angie's List.  I've had a number of poor experiences with their recommended vendors.

Tony,

I have been disappointed in our local Angie's list.  On two ocasions their recommendations did not answer our calls.  One was out of business.  I think it depends on the area they are in.  A

I am not one of her fans nor are many others in western PA.  We prefer word of mouth referrals.  We are not going to follow suggestion of out of town celebrity.  I have read several of her newspaper & Internet articles and have not been impressed by her advice.

OMG that is bad news for good contractors...they keep attracting more and more price sensitive people and keep trying to charge contractors more and more.  Their services have really gone down hill since they went public.

Haven't paid them any real attention.  Didn't want to pay for an account and never gave them a second thought.  May now, but doubtful.

I know it's not nice to promote on someone elses thread but I'm just trying to help him a little. Hope you don't mind. Please feel free to delete it if you're not comfortable with it. Big thanks.
