Got a job from Angies List
Permalink  
 


Went to their site and filled out a profile. Angies List emailed that someone had a question. I thought it was spam or solicitation but it wasnt. I called right away. Sold the job on the phone and was able to fill in my 2pm slot today to add another $400 to todays total.

From my understanding of Angie's List is that it is a consumer ratings site. Similar in a way to Consumer's Report where you, the consumer, subscribe to gain access to product reviews and ratings. However with Angie's List, the reviews are on contractors that are reviewed/rated by customers not a lab. This that basically correct?

I went on Angie's List to look for roof cleaners. As you can see in the screen shot they have the category but no link to roof cleaning contractors. I tried a few zip codes including my own and nothing. Could be an opportunity...

That is correct Dave. Here are two reviews left by customers on Landis Roof Cleaning. It's a pretty thorough evaluation, and I believe it includes some good info for other potential clients who view it. There is another thread on this somewhere in here on the Premium Side for those thinking about signing up.

Sinking Spring, PA 19608
Category: Roof Cleaning
Work Done: Yes* More Weight is given to a report where work has been completed.
Work Completed Date: April 15, 2011
Hire Again: Yes
Approximate Cost: $1,040.00
Home Build Year: 1990
Description Of Work: I am getting ready to put my house on the market as I am moving. I built the house 21 years ago and am in the woods. As you might imagine, my roof was covered with a lot of moss and algae and I needed it cleaned. It was in good condition and won't need relacing for at least 10 years, so I decided to see if it could get cleaned.
Member Comments: Barry Landis personally came out and examined the house and gave me an estimate on the spot + let me know when they could schedule me. Of course, scheduling was weather dependent. Before the estimated date, they called to confirm the appointment and what I needed to do in preparation (no cars on drive and not have the family going in and out of the house a lot). Barry and 2 helpers came and performed the job like it was their own house. They watered down all the shubbery so that it would not be damaged and then after finishing told me exactly what to expect over the next few weeks. The roof is incredible. It looks brand new. And the price is so minimal compared to re-roofing. Dealing with Barry and his staff was definitely one of the best experiences I have had with any contractor.

BIRDSBORO, PA 19508
Category: Roof Cleaning
Work Done: Yes* More Weight is given to a report where work has been completed.
Work Completed Date: October 15, 2010
Hire Again: Yes
Approximate Cost: $600.00
Home Build Year: 1970
Description Of Work: Barry's wife Tina stopped at our house (they live on the same road). She said it was because she admired our new garage and new barn but was upset that the old portion of our roof had become so streaked with algae (see 'before' photo). She explained that her husband was so pleased with his roof cleaning business (because of the beautiful results) that they decided to make us a really great offer ($600.00 is a low estimate, not our actual cost) in exchange for putting signs in our front yard. I agreed and spoke to Barry the same day. He was vary knowledgeable about roof cleaning (I had already looked into cleaning it myself) and also understood how to protect our lawn and shrubbery.
Member Comments: Barry used two helpers for the job. I was impressed with their professionalism and thoroughness right from the very start. They removed downspouts and collected run-off in plastic buckets. To protect shrubbery they sprayed everything first. Next they sprayed cleaner onto the roof a section at a time so that it had time to do it's work. Then they rinsed each section off... all with a gentle spray - no power washer. They also cleaned the fascia, gutters and downspouts. Some streaking could be seen immediately after they finished but Barry assured me that it would wash off with the first rain; it did. We are delighted with our 'new roof'.

Thanks Barry and very impressive reviews. I went back on Angie's List and entered your zip code 19508 and could not find you or anyone listed under "Roof Cleaning". Why is that?

 Dave, I'm not sure, it could be under another service. I just had a customer call me about carpet cleaning (which I do not service) and he said he found me on Angies list. I am not a consumer member of Angies List so I never looked into the whole category thing. I don't even rember signing up as a contractor, I think I was listed by my customers reviews.

Ray,

As a business you don't pay to have an account in AL. Only consumer members pay.

You pay if you want to stand out and have a better listing. We pay about $165 a month for a premium listing under interior & exterior painting.So that's 2 listings.I don't bother with getting listed in their magazine or any of their other offers.We have tried them and have had no increased business but we get a ton of work from AL
