Angie's List may not be the best place to find a trusted contractor

We recently paved a driveway for a customer who had an awful Angies List experience. Our customer went on Angie' List thinking he would find a well trusted paving company to pave his driveway. Unfortunately the company he hired removed the existing asphalt and never showed up again. The owner continuously gave him dates and kept missing his deadlines. He gave excuses such as his paving box broke down, he didn’t have enough help, he would come when our customer wasn’t home etc. 3 months went by and our customer had finally had enough. He decided to give us a call. Our customer explained his situation and we were able to get it graded and paved in a timely fashion.
As far as I know you have to pay to be a part of Angies List. Meaning any contractor can join. Most of the time I would believe a contractor would pay to join a group because his work product does not speak for itself and is having trouble finding business. I know you have to pay to be a part of Home Advisor as well. These groups sound good on paper but when it comes down to it can they really deliver? In my opinion the better contractor’s don’t need to be a part of these organizations in order to drive business. Obviously everyone has their own opinion and can form their own assumptions. When hiring a contractor usually your local contractor would be the most trusted and loyal in your community. Your local contractor usually has ties to the community. We put our last name on everything we do. With that comes a social responsibility to our family and our customers. We understand the future of our business heavily relies upon our work product we create today.
