Homeowners Win and Save Money by Hiring Licensed and Insured Contractors and Service Professionals

Ft. Myers, FL- SW Florida Homeowners finally have a resource of pre-screened licensed and insured contractors, realtors and service companies that are reliable to hire for home improvements, home sales and home services.

The SWFL Service Directory was started by a group of dedicated professionals who understand the needs in this market. Both homeowners and contractors can be transient to some extent in SW Florida. The Yellow Pages is no longer the place for homeowners to turn to when searching for professional services. Referrals can be tough to find for specialty needs that homeowners require from time to time. Internet research can be hit or miss.

Current market conditions have encouraged homeowners to remodel their homes instead of sell. Home values have fallen over the past eighteen to twenty-four months, leaving homeowners questioning what they should do. The good news for homeowners is that the value will return, if slowly. So what can a homeowner do to stick it out?

Remodeling the key areas of your home might be the answer. Sprucing up your exterior or interior might help keep your home ready to sell—or it might just make you want to stay. You might want to consider hiring a professional window cleaning company, having your lanai cage or roof power-washed by a professional, sprucing up the carpets and drapes through professional cleaning or hiring a new lawn-landscaper to add curb appeal. Another option is to replace major equipment, such as air conditioning systems, upgrading windows and doors from non-impact to impact-resistant products, adding hurricane shutters, replacing your roof, replacing sprinkler systems, repainting interior and exterior areas that have been neglected, replacing the old-fashioned laminate counter top or Corian with granite or marble in your kitchen or bath, refinishing the worn out pool and spa or looking at much needed gutter systems that you have never had to ultimately add value to your home. Remodeling entire rooms or adding an addition can turn your home into your dream home. Adding value to your home may also make it easier to sell if that is your ultimate goal. Better yet, this is the best time to make home improvements if it is your ultimate goal to stay in your home.

Until now, SW Florida homeowners haven't had a resource that they can depend on to find licensed and insured companies with good local reputations to hire to do all this work. So how does a homeowner solve the complex issue of hiring the right company when there is so much uncertainty? The SWFL Service Directory guarantees that all of its members are licensed and insured, with a good local reputation, which gives homeowners the ability to find an able contractor, realtor or service company who is following the rules and protecting the interest of the homeowner.

All prospective professional members of the SWFL Service Directory are thoroughly pre-screened for the proper credentials and reputation. Once a company is approved for membership, they are allowed to attend the monthly meetings, where they take part in training and on-going education on customer service issues and professional training, plus networking and interaction with other top trade experts.
