We’re proud to work with a diverse group of home improvement professionals who share their expertise every week here at eLocal. Their knowledge comes from years of experience that collectively represents thousands of successful projects. Working in such a competitive industry, many professionals will tell you that their favorite job is probably the last one that paid the bills, but we know every expert has a special project they’ll never forget.

Why We’re Asking:

Every professional has good days and bad ones. Orders get confused, weather causes problems, tools break, and employees don’t show up; in short, accidents and set-backs happen. Then there are the days when things turn out great, when frustrating problems turn into unique solutions and experts remember why they’re so passionate about what they do. We’ve heard their advice, now we want to see how they apply it in the real world.

So experts, it’s time to show off:

What projects are you most proud of?

Which of your projects represented a case where everything went right and something spectacular was created?
Was there a job that was particularly rewarding?
What project turned out better than you ever expected?
Does your first job hold special significance to you?
Were there any jobs you never thought you’d complete?
What projects taught you the most?
