Question DetailsAsked on 2/19/2016

Why are businesses allowed to be listed on this website if they receive "no show" reviews?

I suggest that, at the very least, Angie's List include in the search criteria a field whereby one could click to eliminate any business that has received a "no show" review. The same holds true of a review given....there should be a field labeled "no show" even if the work was eventually completed after the initial promised date.
So often many business involved in home repair (i.e. contractors, roofers, etc) receive negative reviews because they do not show up as promised (or even call) leaving homeowners frustrated because they've taken time off work and/or need something fixed right away.
Maybe if businesses realize just how important punctuality is in addition to the integrity and craftsmanship ratings on this website they would not be making promises they have no intention of keeping.

Good idea - though in defense of the "no shows", many times a contractor gets tied up on another job, is farther away that he planned or is running errands or getting materials and forgets the appointment or loses track of time, does not have his cell phone with him because it would get damaged so does not hear the alarm if he set one for the appointment, etc. So a no show is not necessarily an indication that he never intended to keep the scheduled appointment, though granted a habit of that is poor customer relations and will hurt his business and should be reflected in reviews.
