This experience was flawless from beginning to end...Manuel was nothing but friendly and professional. His first contact with me was only about forty-five minutes after I requested the quote via Angie's. He was very punctual and kept in constant contact with me. The price of replacing my wood fence gate was very reasonable and he performed the work in a very timely manner. I realized that he made an exception for me as his company usually performs larger jobs, but he wanted to take care of my need. The gate looks great and I am totally satisfied! Manuel put customer service first and I could not be happier. He will be the one I reach out to whenever I need his services in the future, and I will refer anyone I can to reach out to him for similar services.

Had my kitchen and countertops repaired plus flooring in kitchen and dining room. Work was completed by Unique JNZ Home-services the contractor Juan ** did a great job with the cabinets and flooring. I only had one minor problem that was not caused by Juan but by Apex stone and granite which Juan recommended was the granite countertops was poor quality granite. It had many small chips, scratches and flaws that were not noticed until after the countertops were installed. Overall I am pleased with the outcome of the repairs and after a granite inspection done they stated that the granite that Apex sold was a quality 6/10 rating. I got what I paid for the inspector stated. As a contractor Juan was very professional, courteous and on time. He cleaned up all his trash from the repairs after his work was completed. I would recommend Juan to anyone who may need home repairs.
Angie's helped me identify 3 contractors that had the qualifications and good reviews I was looking for to do a repair job. The information I gleaned from other reviewers was invaluable to me in doing this; it is very hard to identify skilled craftsmen in our local area! The reviews also helped steer me away from a couple of contractors that multiple people had had bad experiences with. I then called all 3 contractors I'd identified for assessments of the job, and their estimates. 1 turned out to be a dud outright (pawned me off to someone else who never called back). The remaining 2 were both well qualified based on their assessments, but the one I chose was about $500 less expensive!! So thank-you Angie!! I greatly appreciate the service you provide!!
Colonial Van Lines, Pompano Beach, Fl should not be in business. After contracting with them 3 months in advance and putting down a deposit, they left us stranded 2 days before our move. We were asked to give them 3 days possible for our move. We did this and the day before our 1st day were told that they were not able to move us at all! Frantic because we had to out of the house we sold, we contacted Angi. The woman sent me a list of local movers immediately. This was on a Sunday and only one moving company answered their phone. Top Notch Movers, Madison, WI. We were moving to SC. The owner stated he would make it happen and he did. The next day he had his movers over and we were out of the house that night. He had to store our belongings because he had other moves scheduled but made sure to help us out. They delivered our things a week later as promised.

Richard went over and above installing my driveway. He knew City of Portland code and was very reasonable on price, and quality of his work was superior. He also set 5 beams for my patio cover while he was there which was not included in bid. This company was the best contractor experience I've ever had and I have hired many contractors so I speak from experience. This contractor does more than driveways and is very experienced in his knowledge. He was always on time and his crew was fast, accurate, and timely. My driveway and patio cover are beautiful. I will hire Richard and his team on every construction job I have in the future and I know I will not have to worry about any of the details of the job, I can actually relax and leave it all up to Richard. Thanks Richard. You were delightful and trustworthy.

Angie's List is highly advertised in our area, however, every time I have tried to use it I get very poor service. The last experience was for a drywall contractor. I received one estimate and though we contacted the company to do the work I received no response. I also contacted the customer service at Angie's and they were extremely rude. I guess my cash payment was no interest to them. I have several more projects in line but will use their competition. What a waste of my time.
I used Angi for Fixed Price Services. The Pros scheduled with Angi were not experienced, fully equipped, or on time. I was left purchasing hundreds of dollars of equipment that I have no use for, and my wall still does not have wallpaper. The wall is 8ft tall and 11ft wide. Angi recommends 3 hrs. I have had two "Pros" spend 6 hours not completing the project and requesting more money.
Claim by Angi: When you book fixed-price wallcovering or wallpaper installation services, you’ll be connected with local professionals who can take care of your request. In addition to freeing up your time for the more important things in life, booking a fixed-price wallcovering or wallpaper installation service will give you the security of knowing that things are being handled by an expert. If you’d rather leave things to a professional, then we are ready to help.
Response to Claim: Angi list takes 2/3 of the total project cost. The pro is then only wanting to spend the allotted time and charge more money. All while supplies are not included. I have now spent two Saturdays and an additional $300. I believe the latest "pro" made mistakes that will require purchasing additional wallpaper.
The following is my review of the claims vs. what actually happened.
Angi Description -1. 1. Pick a time. No more delivery windows! Select the exact day and time for your service to get instant, affordable pricing. Response 1 - The two "pros" showed up late to each appointment. Instant affordable pricing is deceptive as the price does not include supplies or equipment. The price is also just based on hours. The "Pro" ends up spending more time so they can get paid because Angi takes 2/3 of the fee you pay.
Angi-2. Book instantly. We'll confirm your appointment and take care of payment electronically and securely. Response 2- Payment electronically- The "Pros" don't know how to use the app to charge you for additional supplies, or time. You have to pay them cash for additional services outside of the allotted time.
ANGI- 3. Your pro arrives. An experienced, fully-equipped professional will show up on time at your door! Response 3: I thought I was paying for this experience. The "pro" that showed up each time did not have equipment, and were lacking experience. I had to explain how to do the project to the first "pro". The second pro requested equipment to be purchased, but then didn't complete the project.
We loved our landscaper… BUT when we went to pay though Angi the site was extremely difficult to maneuver. I received only one message that payment went through…. BUT when we reviewed the credit card statement was BILLED twice. When we contacted Angi, could not get through to a person, so emailed them. When they finally got back to us (in greater than 24 hours which was promised on the contact site)… received a limp apology and basically a message that they would have to look into it and it would take an additional 1-3 days for them. To get back to us. SO…. Basically they have stolen money from us and seem not too interested in refunding ASAP. Also, from my understanding they take money from the good folks that work through this site.
My recommendation is to NOT to USE ANGI and work directly through the home improvement workers. Angi is NOT a caring or reputable company. I don’t know about any of you… I don’t have money sitting around to wait for them to repay me…. When the site is not user friendly and very poor! They are thieves in my mind!
Two of Angi’s recommendations were very overpriced. The moving company that I found on my own was terrific. So I wrote a review on their site. It was very easy to navigate that site to leave a review.
We have had very good success with Angie's List. We have used this site for several projects over several years and it has been a tremendous help. I would recommend them to family and friends without reservation.
