BestContractors. com Introduces Innovative New Project Photo Feature

BestContractors. com Introduces Innovative New Project Photo Feature

Homeowners can share photos of their projects with the contractors who are bidding on them, making it easier for homeowners and contractors to communicate and work together.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) May 23, 2007

Taking on a home improvement or remodeling project just got easier thanks to a new feature that allows homeowners to share photos of their projects with the contractors who are bidding on them, announced BestContractors. com today.

"This is an easier way for homeowners and our member contractors to communicate on projects," said CEO Mark Henninger. "Now a contractor can view photos from a homeowner to see what the project work site looks like before setting foot inside the homeowner's house."

He used the example of a kitchen remodel to explain the value of this site enhancement: "Bidding contractors can view a photo of a homeowner's kitchen to get a better idea of the project's scope and use it to provide preliminary feedback. That homeowner might also upload a photo of a friend's recently remodeled kitchen to give contractors an idea of the type of cabinetry, hardware, granite and lighting desired."

Henninger went on to describe the versatility of the feature. "You might be at your home improvement store and, using your cell phone camera, snap a picture of a sink you want for your new kitchen. You can then upload that photo on our site so that your contractor can include the sink in his materials list."

The site, located at http://www. BestContractors. com (http://www. BestContractors. com), has made user-friendly features a focus, especially when it improves communication between homeowners and service professionals. That emphasis has earned it praise from the public who have also embraced the company's "Predicated on Choice" philosophy of putting decision-making in the hands of homeowners.

"We work hard to make sure our web site is one that people will want to come to for help with their home projects, and once they're here they'll have a useful and pleasant experience," said Henninger. He noted the positive word-of-mouth the company has received along with a healthy amount of return visits from homeowners.

This latest announcement highlights a busy time for the company. So far this year they have expanded their service into San Diego, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa, Sarasota, West Palm Beach and Atlanta with plans to add more markets before year's end. Other markets they serve include Colorado, Minneapolis and Dallas-Fort Worth.
