where do you find reputital contractors

this might be a strange question for a DYI forum. When the job is outside your DYI scope or you just don't feel like doing it yourself. Where and how do you find a contractor you can trust? Maybe this is a condition unique to N.Y. but it seems like there is no honest competent contractors left.

Word of mouth is usually the best way, using a contractor that someone else was satisfied with. Often the various suppliers will know which of their customers have the best reputation.

unfortunately most people I talk to go with the cheapest or the only person they call.

I have always looked to friends and acquaintences. However, just recently I joined Angie's List and got a good guy to do some hardwood floor refinishing.
