Question DetailsAsked on 9/16/2015

Does angies list inform ANY contractors that a member has searched for their classification ?

I quite frankly don't want a county code inspector running over to my property from a non-hired Contractor reporting a violation !

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Hi Richard,

This is Robin K. with Member Care. Thanks for posting your question.

Contractors are unable to see if members have searched for them on the list. The only way they would get your information is if you posted a review about them or if you purchased a Big Deal.

I hope this information helps! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at We're happy to help, Richard!

As a Contractor, I do not think they do.

I can't see that a category search or a look at a contractor' s profile page could lead to that anyway - even assuming a contractor was that warped, not even having met you or seen your place. Just looking up his info would not give him any info to base a complaint to the building department on - and even if he had your contact info there would be no way he could know anything about your property or necessarily even what address you were looking at having this work done at from a simple lookup.

Also, AL has previously stated contractors do not get your contact info except if you sign up for a Deal (buy a service from them), or if you post a Review on them.

Also - except for multi-family apartment buildings, a code inspector would (unless an obvious safety violation was visible from the street) not have justification to look at your house anyway. They inspect work that is permitted to approve (or disapprove) it for the work being done under the permit - they do not come and look at your house for existing code violations.
