Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 01, 2012
Today, BuildZoom announced the launch of Modern Home Guide, a site that provides userful home improvement information to homeowners, powered by a a community of over 10,000 remodeling and construction contractors.
Modern Home Guide will include recommendations on how to work with contractors, general home improvement advice, information on current remodeling trends, remodeling case studies and more. Homeowners will also have the ability to submit their home improvement questions to the remodeling community.
“The BuildZoom contractor community has grown considerably over the past year,” said Ryan Petersen, VP of Marketing for BuildZoom. “We felt there was an incredible opportunity to tap into the collective experience of our users to provide a valuable service for homeowners.”
Although the majority of content on Modern Home Guide will come from the contractors, a full time staff will be responsible for working directly with the community to ensure a high level of editorial content.
BuildZoom empowers homeowners to make better hiring decisions by providing them with a simple and effective way to find the best service provider for their next job. BuildZoom uses a Big Data approach that analyzes over 1.8 million remodeling contractors in the US against a broad set of quality indicators such as their license status, BBB ratings, consumer feedback and more. Each contractor is given an independent rating that determines their placement on BuildZoom.com, where consumers can freely browse and search to find the right service provider for their next job.
