The time period following natural disasters is critical for homeowners who are desperate to have their lives put back in order and they often fall prey to disreputable out-of-town contractors who descend on the area looking to turn a quick buck.
Gulf Shores, AL (PRWEB) February 02, 2012
In response to the recent weather-related destruction in the Birmingham area, a new Alabama-based company is offering homeowners free assistance with managing and paying for repairs through local, licensed contractors.
Doug McCright CEO of Gulf Shores-based SafePact.com says they are offering their online contractor management and escrow services to local homeowners affected by the storms at no cost for the next 60 days.
According to McCright, SafePact.com provides “peace of mind and a more satisfying construction experience” to homeowners who have concerns about finding and working with reputable home improvement contractors.
“The time period following natural disasters is critical for homeowners who are desperate to have their lives put back in order,” says Lin Saville, VP of Sales who is a Birmingham-area resident and partner in SafePact, “and they often fall prey to disreputable out-of-town contractors who descend on the area looking to turn a quick buck.” SafePact.com offers homeowners a secure online portal, through which they can contact local contractors, arrange for and approve estimates, and even pay for services through a secure escrow account. Using a SafePact escrow account ensures that the contractor receives payment only after the terms of the contract have been met to the satisfaction of the homeowner.
“Homeowners like working with contractors who agree that payment should be contingent upon homeowner satisfaction,” says Saville. “SafePact.com helps homeowners weed out contractors who aren’t willing to wait for approval before payment. And, speaking as a professional who has spent most of my career working with contractors, I can tell you that contractors like the idea that the payment for the project is right there, waiting to be released after a job well done. Utilizing SafePact actually motivates reputable contractors to do the job right and on time—which is what victims of a natural disaster want more than anything.”
