What makes Improvement Tree® different from other contractor directories?
Other than the fact that Improvement Tree is the most professional, most inclusive business directory online that is ABSOLUTELY FREE…here are some other differences:
First of all, the Improvement Tree contractor directory is a vertical web directory created specifically for contractors, subcontractors, handymen, and construction businesses.
Improvement Tree was created to give home owners and property owners a place online to look for reliable and qualified home improvement providers and construction businesses. From our contractor directory, home owners and property owners can read the ratings and reviews of contractors and subcontractors in their area left by home owners just like them. Our users can also watch videos and view photo galleries of contractors work. They can also find out whether our not a certain contractor has liability insurance, where or not they have references, or whether or not they accept major credit cards.
The Improvement Tree contractor directory provides all the pertinent information a consumer needs to make an informed choice on what contractor or subcontractor they choose to complete their home improvement project.
Home owners and property owners can also take it a step further by posting their home improvement projects on Improvement Tree. Once submitted, a home owner's project can ONLY be viewed by our registered contractors who can then contact home owners. This creates a bidding environment, which ultimately gets the home owner the best price to have their home improvement project completed.
Our registered contractors can ONLY contact a home owner through our website (via email and a Private Message Board system). After contact is made, it is up to the home owner to decide whether or not they wish to share their personal contact information (address, phone number, etc) with a contractor or subcontractor.
A home owner can keep the bidding process on Improvement TREE as long as they wish, even up to finalizing their choice with a contractor or subcontractor.
Of course, after a project has been completed by using the Improvement Tree contractor directory, we recommend our home owners RATE and REVIEW the business that completed the work so that other home owners can make an informed decision on whether or not to choose that business.
The Improvement TREE contractor directory is absolutely FREE for home owners and property owners to use, including the "post a home improvement project" function.
For our registered contractors, subcontractors, handymen, and construction businesses:
Improvement TREE is designed to capture qualified leads for your business to bid on, accept, and make money from. And unlike other contractor directories, Improvement TREE does not charge you per lead. If fact, we don’t charge anything. We are an absolutely FREE contractors directory.
With Improvement Tree, our leads are FREE once you've registered within our contractor directory. You can view and accept as many leads as you want.
