Metuchen, NJ, October 11, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- For homeowners, finding a great contractor for maintenance, repair or remodeling has just become easier thanks to www.QuoteCity.com. The website, which has been online since February 2006 and in development since July 2005 is growing rapidly and already has over 1,000 home improvement leads in its system.
"Homeowners who are looking for a home repair or improvement are always searching for a great contractor at a great price,” said Terry Tateossian who founded the site with her fiancé Ken Krysinski who has spent over 12 years as a landscape contractor. "Most of the homeowners we surveyed said that getting a contractor to call them back or return with an estimate after an initial meeting was the most frustrating part of the home improvement process. We aim to eliminate this and make working with home improvement contractors a breeze."
In response to this concern, the Quotecity founders decided on a simple concept that helps homeowners by letting the contractors come to them. To request a project, a homeowner simply registers at http://www.QuoteCity.com. The registration is quick, free and only asks for basic contact information as well as the project that the homeowner is looking to do. Once the project is posted, emails and phone calls containing the job information are delivered to member contractors who match the project criteria. Up to 3 contractors will then be allowed to take the contact information for the job. “We believe that when a contractor gets to choose his projects, he is much more likely to follow through on them,” said Krysinski.
In addition to posting jobs online, homeowners can search Quotecity’s contractor business directory to see profiles containing details such as work photos, company licensing information and ratings and testimonials from former clients for each member contractor.
QuoteCity.com is also moving towards a more community-based site where customers and contractors can interact and use forums and tools to make their projects easier. Manufacturer listings and a "for sale by owner" house-listing module are also under development.
"We are rapidly growing and already have contractors from almost every state in the country," Ms. Tateossian said, "and we have almost 1,400 homeowners and over 1,000 contractors in our system, but we are still maintaining our commitment to individual service and quality. For any homeowner or contractor, www.QuoteCity.com is the best place to post or find a home improvement project."
