Home Network Helps Find
referral based service based out of Chicago has been expanding their network
since starting out in 1998, helping out homeowners who don’t know of any
To date, the Home Improvement Network has amassed over 350 contractors in the
Chicagoland area, and has served over 25,000 suburban homeowners.
Pete Thomas, owner of the Home Improvement Network, said he personally evaluates
all of the contractors that service the area. Each contractor is interviewed in
person, their references are verified, and proof of insurance is obtained before
any contractor can become a member of the service.
“There is a great deal of distrust between consumers and contractors,” says
Pete. “A lot of it is simply lack of communication.”
Home Improvement Network staff talk with each of the homeowners so they can
understand the scope of the project, then match them up with the right
contractors for the job.
“Finding a good contractor doesn’t have to be a negative experience,” explains
Pete. “Our job is to take the headache out of it.”
