Mississauga, ON Canada (PressExposure) May 03, 2006 -- Whether it is a new roof, a leaky faucet or a basement addition, home renovations can be daunting and expensive without a skilled and reliable contractor. To help navigate the home renovation process, HandyCanadian.com is an online resource connecting homeowners to qualified contractors and service professionals for all their home and business improvement needs.
Through HandyCanadian.com, consumers can post their project needs for free and receive bids from local skilled contractors and service professionals in interior or exterior repair, maintenance, remodeling, renovation and utility services. HandyCanadian provides consumers the convenience and confidence to select the right contractor to fit their needs and budget.
Consumers may also choose to browser the open directory and use the advanced search features to locate and contact contractors and service professionals directly.
âAs a homeowner, I know how important it is to work with reliable contractors, with good service at competitive prices,â said Mike Taylor, co-founder of HandyCanadian. âHandyCanadian is the better way to connect homeowners with quality, reputable service professionals quickly and easily.â
"What a great site. I can't believe how easy it was to use HandyCanadian" said homeowner Bill Russel of Toronto, Ont. "I posted a job on Friday, had eight replies by Saturday morning and will be accepting one of them early next week. I will be sure to refer your service to family and friends."
HandyCanadian is also an efficient tool for contractors to generate valuable project leads from homeowners, homebuilders, business owners, real estate agents and other contractors. Using database technology, HandyCanadian sends an email notification to contractors according to specific project data and location.
"I listed my company with HandyCanadian last year. I had listed with a few other sites but for the cost I just didn't see the benefit. Your site has by far the best layout, and is the best source of leads that we have." said Bryan, Baeumler of Quality Construction and Renovations Inc. "Since we listed with HandyCanadian, we've signed contracts on over $400,000 worth of work in only 4 months - that's a pretty good return on our advertising dollars, and is unsurpassed by any other advertising that we've done so far. In fact, as we've built such a network of referrals from the business we've received via your site, we no longer advertise anywhere else!"
Membership has its benefits, and while you can list your company for free (as well as add your company logo, search for subcontractors, post and respond to questions from subcontractors and consumers), paid memberships allow you to search for project leads, receive detailed project information and post a photo gallery and website link.
âHandyCanadian is a profitable tool for contractors and project owners that want to make a lasting impression in the industry,â said Max Sheppard, co-founder of HandyCanadian. âHandyCanadian is quickly becoming the number one resource for consumers and Canadian contractors and we will continue to excel with innovation and provide unmatched customer service,â
