There are 123,000,000+ households and 500,000+ contractors in the U.S.!
Each home improvement project is unique and requires a customized quote from the contractor.
In the past, it was necessary for homeowners to invite an average of four contractors to their house to estimate the cost of one project.
Today, ServiceWhale allows homeowners to research pricing for their custom projects online and at the same time, help the environment.
Each quote generated by ServiceWhale saves 76,000 gallons of oxygen.
You can get quotes to replace your heating and cooling system, install a new floor, fix the roof, upgrade your water heater or all the above.
There is no need to invite multiple contractors to your home for each service, for each estimate.
You know best what services you need. By answering simple questions such as whether or not you need installation or repair service,
or if your heating system runs on gas, electric, oil or propane,
you save 30 miles of driving for each contractor; that's 120 miles for every service you need.
Choosing location / type
Your location is important. Depending on your zip / postal code, residence type and permit requirements, different contractors generate different quotes.
By specifying this information, ServiceWhale helps you to avoid onsite visits from irrelevant contractors
and save 150 lbs of CO2 per drive and 600 lbs per quote.
The urgency for service might range from an immediate need to a week, to a month, several months, or an unspecified timeframe.
ServiceWhale will pick from the many contractors in your area and choose only those that fit your criteria.
Area & Materials
The details of your home improvement project will determine the cost and the number of times a contractor must visit your residence to understand what it is that needs to be done.
The shape of the room, the height and length of the walls, the location of the water heater, the condition of the basement and the location of the cooling compressor,
are examples of questions you will find on ServiceWhale in order to calculate an accurate quote and save 41 lbs of carbon per contractor's drive and 164 lbs per project.
