Do-It-Yourself Home Repair and Renovations Information
It has long been a goal of this site to build a complete directory of local
contractors that is FREE to both the homeowner and the contractor. There are
currently several other web site that require, either the contractor to pay
to be included in the directory, or the homeowner to pay to see the directory.
Our goal is to be free to everyone. It is also our goal to have tons of information
about the contractors including picture of their work, review and recommendation,
and full contact information. Eventually the directory will include every
state but we have decided to start with Colorado, as it is our home state.
Contractors: You may add yourself to the directory in your
area. It is totally free and we will be releasing other states and cities
as we get listings.
Homeowners: Tell your favorite contractors about this free
