Houseace brings the power of technology to home renovations
A marketplace for home improvement.
For all those planning to renovate, know that the market now has innovative solutions to make any home more beautiful, functional, and comfortable. The world is utilizing digital technologies like never before, and the home improvement sector is one of the latest industries to benefit.
A good example of this is Houseace, an Australian home improvement company that is revolutionizing the way people handle their home renovations. It basically works as a marketplace for home improvement, while also making lives easier for anyone looking for such services by removing the complex parts of the process.
Things like quote gathering or contractor selection can be tedious and lengthy affairs. But, with Houseace, homeowners can get an online quote for a variety of home improvement services in around 60 seconds and, if they accept the quote, a dedicated Project Manager will match them with a vetted, trusted local contractor who can get to work within 48 hours.
The services that can be utilized in the platform include most home improvement and home renovation projects
Good examples include bathroom and kitchen renovations, interior and exterior painting, floor sanding and polishing, carpet, tile, and laminate flooring installation, general handy work and decking.
Jonny Sommers, founder of Houseace, explains what makes his business different from other options on the market:
“I think the role technology plays in our business is the key difference between Houseace and other home improvement solutions/service providers. Until now, the home improvement and renovation market has been relatively slow on the uptake of utilizing technology to solve real industry problems and create better experiences for its customers. We think we have tackled this problem head on by building project specific online quoting engines, which allow a user to generate a fully-inclusive quote in minutes by answering a simple set of questions.”
As mentioned by Sommers, Houseace has its own algorithms that process the data provided by the user along with thousands of other variables, generating the most accurate price.
Houseace is also quite thorough when it comes to choosing contractors and tradespeople, with a total of twelve checks that they need to pass before being able to register in the platform. These include trade licensing, insurance and positive reviews, and Houseace keeps monitoring them during their time on the platform.
Seeing how Houseace is able to expedite the entire home renovation process is very impressive and is clearly a very good example of just how the right vision can improve an industry.
