Zambooki is a truly free market for professional contractors to connect to home and business owners
Tuscaloosa, Alabama (PRWEB) September 01, 2011
A new website, Zambooki, allows home and business owners to list jobs under the categories: lawn & garden, interior, exterior and disaster relief. These categories include landscaping, painting, flooring, roofing, plumbing and every kind of home repair, remodeling and rebuilding. Home and business owners then select how long the job will be posted. During this time contractors place estimates on the job using information provided by the home and business owners including pictures of the workspace. Home and business owners then receive an email at the end of the period with all of the estimates listed along with contractor reviews and proof of insurance and certifications. It is then the home or business owner's decision of whom to select to do the job they submitted. Once the decision is made, Zambooki emails the contractor and the contractor contacts the client. This eliminates phone book use followed by numerous calls and hours on the phone and saves the contractors from having to spend time on the road just to give estimates.
Many people have been attracted to the site due to it being free for all users. Tuscaloosa founders Heath Hendrix and Jacob Jones were inspired by the tornado outbreak on April 27, which left parts of the city of Tuscaloosa unrecognizable. They hope this will allow Zambooki to help people such as victims of the storms across the nation. All the categories may be related to storm damage such as interior or exterior work needed due to flooding or wind damage from tornadoes and hurricanes.
The idea for Zambooki, which was launched on July 24 2011, began when Hendrix wanted a nursery painted for his newborn and could not find price listings online. This should no longer be a problem for Hendrix and the users of the site. Homeowners are also encouraged to “window shop” for an idea of prices for upcoming projects also. There is no commitment made to a job when you post it. Site visitors have the luxury of selecting a job or simply getting an estimated price and contractor in mind for the future.
Zambooki is growing and expanding the areas with professional contractors nationwide.
