Denver, CO (PRWEB) March 7, 2006
BestContractors.com, an online resource for homeowners looking for quality residential service professionals, contractors, builders and remodelers, today launched enhancements to its web site making it easier for homeowners to retrieve contractor data. The improvements include an overall redesign with increased efficiencies, enhanced communications, and improved reporting capabilities.
“Homeowners come to us with a specific task in mind: find reliable service professionals for their home improvement projects,” said CEO Mark Henninger. “Our goal with this launch is to help them accomplish this task more efficiently with fewer clicks, thereby improving the overall experience.”
The site, located at http://www.BestContractors.com, features a totally rebuilt home page with brighter, more welcoming graphics. “Homeowners tell us that taking on a home project, especially a large scale project like a kitchen remodel, can be intimidating. Add to that the challenge of finding a contractor you can be comfortable working with. Our new home page is designed to put homeowners at ease.”
Henninger adds that his company places a great emphasis on offering an easy and inviting interface. “We listen to people. We go to trade shows and take notes on the feedback the public provides.” Not only is that good business sense, he says, but it gives the company a marketing point-of-difference between it and its competitors.
The redesigned web site comes on the heels of the company’s recently announced expansion into North Carolina and Minnesota markets along with their home base in Colorado. “Our test market of Colorado has demonstrated the soundness of our business model and we’re excited to enter into an aggressive growth phase.”
BestContractors.com advertises through network television, local cable and Internet search engines such as Google, Yahoo and MSN. Homeowners submit their home improvement, repair or remodeling projects through the site for free, view detailed profiles, photos, ratings, licensing (if required) and then select up to three contractors to bid on the project. The site allows homeowners and service professional to communicate more effectively with online tools. Contractors support the site with membership fees and must meet strict eligibility requirements.
