Angie’s List

Angie’s List is a well-known, professional home-services website that provides referrals and references for all types of projects. One great feature of Angie’s List is their matching services. You can search for a service that you need help with, and Angie’s List will take you through a series of questions to determine the best fit for your project. Then, they will provide you with direct referrals. If you don’t like the first referral they give you, you can always ask for more.

Angie’s List provides free quotes for services and referrals. Professionals on the website are certified, and receive grades and reviews based on past projects.
