Since 1995, Angie’s List has been a powerful website that allows consumers to find the top quality services in their area with the click of a button. Whether you’re looking for an electrical, plumbing, or painting contractor - Angie’s List has it all! 

“Angie’s list is committed to helping our members find the best service pros for their needs,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “We have updated our sort logic so that Angie’s List Certified Service Providers are listed above other service providers in default search results, making it easier for our members to find the service pros who have met certain eligibility requirements and agreed to offer a discount to members.”

What does it mean to be Angie’s List Certified?


All Angie’s List Certified Service Providers pay to promote their services and offer discounts to members. Additionally, they are placed above non-participating providers in default search results. As part of their financial investment, participating service providers are certified by Angie’s List. To advertise and become certified, service providers must meet the following standards of certification:

  • The owner or relevant manager must pass a biennial criminal background check
  • Remain a business in good standing with Angie’s List
  • Maintain an overall member rating of A or B
  • Provide the proper licenses to perform listed work
  • Maintain a company-verified profile page

How can I tell if a business is Angie’s List Certified?


When you search Angie’s List for a service professional, all Certified Service Providers will appear at the top of the search results. These search results include the company’s name, overall grade, number of reviews, certification badge, Super Service Award badge (if applicable), and basic profile information. For example, if you search for Stanford, our listing would display at the top of the page. 

The goal of the search logic is to ensure that members can easily find service providers who have strong interests in building relationships with our members. As a consumer, you can now quickly locate Angie’s List Certified Service Providers, who have taken steps to become certified and made an investment to connect with our members.
