We offer pre-negotiated pricing that eliminates the expensive surprises that come with the typical home remodeling project.
Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) February 29, 2012
Are you looking to save some money – possibly thousands of dollars -- on your next home remodeling project?
The new Remodel Card (http://www.remodelcard.com) helps Twin Cities-area homeowners save up to 50 percent on quality remodeling supplies and products at more than 25 leading home remodeling retailers throughout the Twin Cities, including well-known and respected retailers such as Warners’ Stellian, Muska Lighting, Brock White, Minnesota Tile & Stone, Scherer Bros. Lumber, and Sherwin Williams.
The Remodel Card was launched in 2011 by Olov Strole and Chad Commers, a pair of entrepreneurs who each have many years of experience in the home remodeling industry. Strole and Commers formed their company in 2010 and for more than a year, they vetted and negotiated with leading Twin Cities remodeling retailers and suppliers to become part of the Remodel Card’s network of preferred vendors.
The intent of the The Remodel Card, according to Strole and Commers, is to connect homeowners with leading remodeling retailers to obtain access to high quality products, remodeling expertise, and pre-negotiated pricing. The goal is to help homeowners save thousands of dollars on their next home improvement project, while at the same time, deliver a constant flow of valuable customers to Twin Cities-area home remodeling retailers.
“We see it as a win-win for both homeowners and home remodeling retailers,” said Strole, CEO of Remodel Card LLC. “We bring them together with pre-negotiated pricing to eliminate the expensive surprises and headaches that come with the typical home remodeling project.
Strole and Commers came up with the idea of The Remodel Card based on their “day jobs.” Strole, a native of Sweden, owns and operates a residential remodeling business based in St. Paul. Commers leads leasing operations for his family’s commercial real estate firm, Roseville Properties.
“We believe we’re part of the solution in getting the residential building industry back on its feet,” added Commers. “By offering economic incentives to both consumers and remodeling retailers, we believe we can help stimulate the Twin Cities building and remodeling community in our own small way.”
