Frequently Asked Free Quote Questions
How do your quotes work?
It really is easy, check out our brief description on the how quotes work page.
How many bids should I get for my project?
That certainly depends upon the size of your project. If you are simply needing to have one window installed 1-2 estimates is likely all you need. Getting three estimates for such a small project is not time/cost effective. We typically encourage three contractor estimates for larger jobs such as mulitple window installs, re-siding your home or having a roof replaced.
Will I pay a higher price for my project having used Home Improvement Helper?
No. Our contractors don't charge for their estimates and don't tack on extra charges either. You get connected to quality contractors with less hassle for free.
So, how can Home Improvement Helper offer this service?
Contractors pay Home Improvement Helper a small monthly fee to be a part of our service. For the contractor, it's just another form of advertising. In fact, many of our contractors tell us it's the most cost effective advertising they have found.
How do you screen your contractor members?
Before an contractor is allowed to become a member they are pre-checked for licensing, insurance, and past experience. It's our way of trying to assure that each and every customer gets connected to qualified and professional contractors every time.
How are contractors chosen for my job?
When a project comes in we match contractors to the project based on proximity, specialized services, ability to complete the project in a relatively quick time frame.
