Angie's List

ANGIE'S LIST

Visit Site

BBB Rating:

A+

Angie's List is no doubt a popular option to find the right contractor or doctor in your area. Many of us are familiar with Angie's List based on the ever abundant commercials and marketing ads this company puts forth. An Indiana based company, Angie's List started in 1995 by Angie Hicks and a venture capitalist to provide access to real reviews of local service professionals. This is a fee based company with the option to pay monthly, annually or longer for access to customer reviews.

The membership base of Angie's List is significant. Currently, over 2 million customers are paid members and submit over 60 thousand new reviews each month. Alike some of the other contractors in our analysis, people gain access to real customer reviews to help determine who to hire. Angie's List does take some measures to look for potential “red flag” reviews that may not be legitimate before posting.

A downside to using this referral service is that the number of names and reviews are determined by only the depth of members in that same area. There are no background checks completed on any individuals. Also, Angie's List doesn't allow any free trial or the option to gain access for any period of time to see how in-depth the list of contractors are in any particular area. However, the associated fees for becoming a member are very inexpensive. For only $3.75 per month or $9.99 per year, members are provided unlimited access to reviews of doctors, contractors and access to special deals from various venders. Additional savings are available for 2 and 3 year annual plans. Angie's List also provides a 110% money back guarantee for anyone that is not satisfied and wants to cancel within their first year.

Angie's List is an A+ Better Business Bureau rated company with millions of happy customers. They don't publicize the number of contractors that are reviewed across the nation but do offer a money back guarantee that allows members to try without risk. If you need help choosing a reliable contractor that you can count on, Angie's List is definitely worth a try.

iHOME EXPERTS

BBB Rating:

None

iHome Experts is a Texas based company in business since 2011. iHome Experts currently has no available Better Business Bureau rating.

We found the iHome Experts website to be confusing and as we looked closer we found several issues. iHome Experts states they only offer siding, flooring, countertops, kitchen remodeling, cabinets, window, heating and air conditioning. The process of requesting a contractor for a home repair or improvement request involves a phone call to iHome Experts' toll free number.

This company also states they offer free in-home design consultations, but we're not sure what they would be designing outside of a remodel effort. Another confusing aspect of iHome Experts is that when you call their number the recorded message is for home foreclosures. We were never able to get a hold of an actual customer service representative so we're not confident why an in-home design consultant would want to talk to us about foreclosures - it was a little fishy.

The lack of BBB rating, the short business tenure, and the bad phone number were red flags in our book. If you need a contractor for a home repair or improvement, we recommend you choose a higher ranked company to effectively meet your needs.

Today, many people use home repair and improvement referral companies to minimize the stress of finding a reliable contractor. These referral services can be a great way for you to feel confident in your search for a professional contractor.

However, not all contractor referral companies are the same. Before you jump online to find your next contractor, consider the following:

  • Database. How large is the database of contractors? Does the service offer contractors across the nation or is it limited to only specific areas?
  • Cost. Who pays for the referral service - the homeowner or the contractor? Are contractor quotes and bids free of charge?
  • History. Does the company have a long, reliable history of supplying quality contractors? What's the current Better Business Bureau rating of that company?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best contractor services available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right contractor for your home project!
