From small repairs to large remodels, most homeowners will work with a home professional at some point in their lives.
Since it is a given that homeowners are bound to work with home pros, we want to give them insider info directly from the experts about what little-known tips they should know in order to have a successful relationship with their home professional. Our panel of experts shed some light on what homeowners need to know about the home improvement industry…
Why We’re Asking:
We had an idea. We wanted to create an article titled “Confessions of a Home Improvement Professional,” in which our experts let our homeowners in on little-known secrets about their industry. Since most homeowners only know home pros through their professional relationships with them while working on a project, we wanted to shed some light on insider secrets homeowners wouldn’t normally learn on their own. Like the information you’d receive from your best friend who happens to be a contractor, our experts are here to help you get the best out of your time working with home improvement professionals.
So experts, it’s time to weigh in:
What do homeowners not know about your industry?
What insider tips can you reveal to homeowners about your industry?
What advice or wisdom would you give homeowners about your industry that most do not know?
Is there a little-known way that pros evaluate a client and his/her value in your trade?
Do you have a specific example of a project that could have ended differently if the homeowner knew something?
Is there something homeowners do or say that all pros in your trade absolutely hate (but rarely talk about)?
No matter what you’re tip is, we want to hear it so we can create an article outlining the “confessions of a home improvement pro.”
