The goal of recreating CalFinder and the CalFinder experience is to give homeowners more resources for remodeling their home
Oakland, CA (PRWEB) July 10, 2008
CalFinder, an industry leader in the contractor referral business, has just unleashed a new version of its website, CalFinder.com. Through CalFinder.com, homeowners have access to a one-stop-shop for remodeling information and free referrals from the most reputable contractors in every trade. The new website will give homeowners an even more enhanced experience with remodeling photos and more resources online.
"The goal of recreating CalFinder and the CalFinder experience is to give homeowners more resources for remodeling their home," says Dean Dowd, CalFinder's Web Developer and CTO. "Throughout the site, we are now featuring real live photos of remodeling jobs, created by our contractors. It's a good resource for them to get ideas and picture what their remodel can be like."
The Ideas Gallery, calfinder.com/ideas, is one of the latest features on the site. Categorized by remodeling category and the details that fall under each category, the Ideas Gallery shows examples of how your potential remodel can manifest. "If you're looking for pictures of luxury bathrooms," Dowd says, "we have a category of pictures specifically for that. If you want to know what you can do with shower and bath tile, we also have a gallery for that. So the photos here are broken down by each trade, and broken down even further for that purpose."
In addition, CalFinder.com has added the Remodeling Magazine to its nationally recognized Home Improvement Library and Remodeling Blog, where industry experts are interviewed on a regular basis. The Remodeling Magazine will be updated each day with new articles on various aspects of remodeling, giving homeowners the details they crave.
"We're providing another useful resource for consumers to find more specific, more detailed ideas that will fit their needs more," Dowd says. "The whole look and feel of this new version, this new interface of CalFinder.com, features a plethora of articles, blog posts, and loads of information for each trade in the remodeling industry. It's really become a well-rounded resource for finding remodeling information and certified contractors."
