In times when there is a cash crunch in the market and slowdown in the economy, it is important to spend judiciously. If you are in need of an additional room, the most economical way is to make use of the existing space in the best possible way. You will, however, need to hire a professional contractor, since an inexperienced person may not be able to give you the desired results. One way of finding an expert, yet affordable, professional is by contacting all the contractors in your area, soliciting bids from them, scanning through references and haggling for the right price, all of which requires huge investment of time and effort.

An alternative and the most time-efficient way of finding these professionals is through the MiNeeds site. Through MiNeeds, you can let the professionals search for you and attempt to win your business, instead of the other way around. All you have to do is to post your detailed requirement and sit back till you receive enough responses from professionals. As the professionals are bidding to win your business, you would also end up saving money. This is the path the customer in Rochester, Washington, took when he wanted to convert his garage into a game room. The moment he posted his requirement, MiNeeds contacted all the professionals in his area and prompted them to submit competitive bids in order to win the business. Within a few days, he had received a number of responses from several professionals, giving him ample choices to choose from. Since most of the professionals who had responded were licensed, he did not even have to bother about checking their credentials.

You can also simplify your search for professionals the next time you want to renovate or construct a room. You can scan through the list of Seattle Home Repair to contact the professionals who suit your need. Alternatively, you can simply post your needs and wait for the professionals to contact you!!

When you want to get some modifications done to or installations made in your home, you need to get these tasks done by a professional to ensure that things are done right the first time. Looking for the right general contractor is a tough job. Whenever you hire a contractor for a job, the actual price ends up being ten times the starting price. And, by the time you realize you are overshooting your budget, it is too late. You have no option but to continue with the project with the same professional, since any argument might cease the project midway. To avoid such large fluctuation in the cost of any home modification project, the better option would be to buy the materials yourself and just hire someone to put it up. This is not only a very time consuming option but also requires huge amounts of effort and expertise.

Fortunately, this New Year’s you have the easiest and most effective option available – the MiNeeds platform. MiNeeds is a place where professionals seek to bid on the services you need, instead of the other way around. This is just what the customer in Wallingford, Washington, did when he wanted a contractor to install a new front door and jamb in his boathouse. He posted his need on MiNeeds, which automatically informed all the professionals in his area and prompted them to place their bids in an effort to win the business. Within a few days, he had received several bids, which helped him select the one that best met his budgetary and other requirements.

Save yourself the hassle and cost of searching for the right professional the next time you need a contractor. You can either browse through the list of Seattle Home Repair Contractors or simply post your need and wait for the bids to pour in.

We have all heard the nightmarish stories before. And unfortunately, some of us have even lived through them too.

How can there be professional contractors out there that are still in business after pulling a fast one you may ask? That is a hard question to answer. The better, and much easier, question to answer is what do you do when you get stiffed by one of these con artists?

They had been left in a lurch on a complete remodel and didn’t know what to do or where to turn, so they let MiNeedshelp them out.

The scarred customer ended up with seven bids from general contractors, all with information such as qualifications, credentials, recommendations, and so forth, allowing the now-skeptical customer to regain some trust in the next provider they choose.

You know when you buy that new stove or dishwasher that it has to be installed in order to work. This is no new revelation. And if you are not too proud to admit it, some of us have no idea where to even start when it comes to such installations. While some appliance retailers offer an installation price, others don’t; especially if you are purchasing your new appliance from a discounted reseller. So unless you have a handy uncle or a friend who knows somebody that owes them a favor, you may end up spending half of what you paid for your new appliance on the installation costs.

Now that doesn’t have to be the way it works for everyone. Look at this Seattle customer in need of someone to remove an old garbage disposal and replace it with a new one. He posted his need on MiNeeds, a website where customers can post their needs and invite professional service providers to bid on their business. Once the customer posted the need, all of the local professionals providing home repairs were notified, and were given the opportunity to submit a proposal to the customer. He was welcomed with eight professional proposals without having to lift another finger. Think of all the time and energy he saved by taking a few minutes and posting on MiNeeds. He was also given a valuable piece of advice from another MiNeeds customer, adding to the benefits of being part of this great community.

If you have a small repair or installation that you need done but have been putting it off due to a lack of ability or just don’t know where to turn, check out what services these Seattle home repair professionals can offer. Then, enjoy the ease of posting your needwithin a few minutes time, and have the providers come looking for your business.

One of the toughest and most expensive rooms in any house to remodel is the bathroom. Trying to decide which flooring, counter tops, shower, tub, mirrors, toilet and fixtures to use, it all adds up to a whopping amount. And if you are unsure on how to go about completing all of this work, you could possibly end up doubling that cost by having to fix errors or mistakes you might make along the way. So it comes down to hiring someone to get the job done, but where do you start? Contractors are a dime a dozen, and you always want assurance you are not getting ripped off.

Here is a Tacoma customer looking for a remodeled bathroom who learned the easiest way to hiring a professional for her needs. She turned to MiNeeds, which is a website where customers can post their needed services and invite professionals to bid on them. As soon as she posted her need, all of the professionals providing home repair services were automatically alerted and given the chance to submit a proposal. Seventeen bids later, the customer had a wide array of options to pick from. With different pricing options made available to her, she was able to select the amount that coincided with her budget. She was also given a tip from one of the other MiNeeds customers. This gave her some additional information that she could use in making her decision, ensuring that she would not get over priced or cheated in some way.

Next time you walk into your bathroom, give it a thorough evaluation, taking into consideration the cost of each item you wish to replace and the value of having it done right by a professional.

Customize Your Construction Needs and Save Money

Posted on August 26, 2008. Filed under: Hiring Home Repair General Contractors | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Looking for the right general contractor is a tough chore. It always seems like you start with one price, then end up ten times higher than originally agreed at the end. And what can you do, argue and chance the contractor ceasing operations in the middle of a project? They always seem to offer an estimate that low balls the overall cost, and when it comes down to it they seem to increase the cost of supplies and materials to make up a little extra cash. So why not invest in all of the materials yourself, and just hire someone to put it up? Well, good luck finding a contractor that will agree to those terms.

So instead of the traditional search for a contractor that suits your needs, try MiNeeds, a place where professionals seek to bid on the services you need. Here, a customer from Auburn posted their need for a contractor to build a deck. They had already purchased the materials, and wanted a hired hand to install it correctly. In response to their posted need, general contractors in the customer’s area were invited to offer their services to the customer through a competitive bidding process. After receiving eleven proposals, the customer had plenty of offers to choose from and were able to find a contractor who would allow them to use their already purchased materials, enabling them to save as much money as possible. They only had to figure out labor costs and minor incidentals, which is harder to manipulate in the end result.

This customer also had a big savings on time, and were able to enjoy the comfort of choosing who they felt fit their qualifications without any unnecessary pressure. By having MiNeeds bring all of the interested parties to your doorstep, you inherit more time to be as picky or research as thorough as you want.

Now is the time to save as much cash as possible, and if it means scraping off some of the costs of a construction project by doing it on your own terms, than so be it. You can find more than enough potential professional providers when you browse through the Seattle home repair contractors. And then after you look them over, post your need and get your project underway.
