You have to be a member of Angie's List in order to look up contractors. They get on the list because somebody, usually a member, recommends them. The point of the list is to see what other members have to say about a contractor they used. There are guidelines on how to do a rating so it is fair to the contractor and to members who are looking for one.

You do need to be a member to search Angie's List. Angie's List is a subscription-based ratings and reviews service. We only accept ratings from members and do not allow contractors to self-report or report on their competition. Just because a contractor is on Angie's List doesn't mean they're great--we accept ratings on an A to F scale, like a school report card, so our members can easily learn who to hire and who to avoid.
