If a contractor has no current ratings and reviews with Angie's List, it means other members in your area haven't used--or haven't reported on--them. If you're interested in using that company, be sure to check with all your state and local agencies to ensure they're properly licensed and registered and insured.

After checking with state and local agencies be sure to ask for a current copy of all required Insurance Certificates.Basicaly you'll need to see proof of Liability and Workmens Comp.,if they have employees.
Also ask for and check references on recently completed projects.Get at least three references to get a good track record of their abilities.

Ditto on the above and while Angie's List is the best review site (seriously) you can also cross reference with other resources like, yelp, kudzu, ripoffreport and

Another solution is to google things with quotation marks around them including the contractors business name, license#, telephone, etc. to see what pops up on 'em.
