Planning major or minor repairs to your house this summer and need to find someone to do the work? Looking for a reliable Air Condtiioning contractor? Need your basement waterproofed? For information about Chicago-area service providers, without the expense of subscribing to Angie’s List, use your Evanston Public Library card to access Chicago Consumers’ Checkbook, and find ratings, comments and advice on services from Accountants to Window Washers and everything in between. (You can even find ratings on physicians, dentists, acupuncturists, and other health care practitioners.) Do you want to rate a firm or leave your own comment? You can do that, too. Consumers’ CHECKBOOK/The Center for the Study of Services is an independent, nonprofit consumer organization founded in 1974 with the help of funding from the U.S. Office of Consumer Affairs. Their purpose is to provide consumers information to help them get high quality services and products at the best possible prices.
