Remodel Cost Estimator
Estimate the cost of your home remodeling project & see how much value it will add
When we launched Kukun as a marketplace for all things related to renovations, we had a vision that anyone thinking about home remodeling would have a place where they could find answers to all their questions and all the resources they need in one place. That was four years ago, and we have learned a lot along the way. I am excited to share some of my knowledge so that you can see the benefits of joining Kukun.
My aim was, is and will always be “to stimulate our economy and remodel every home, one brick at a time.” During our first year, we did a lot of market research about why people have such a bad image of home remodeling. Sure, some of the reasons are easy to guess, but we needed to know in a more scientific way. The answer comes down to two key elements:
In the latter part of 2014, we started to develop the solutions. When it came to understanding how people hire the right professionals, we conducted more intense market research. After six months, we learned the obvious (sometimes you need to do these things to confirm the obvious), which is that, when asked about how they hire a contractor, over 82% of those polled said that they almost always hire through a word-of-mouth recommendation or referral from someone they trust in their circle of friends and family.
One thing many people want to know was where a potential contractor has previously worked. We also asked another important question: would you consider your neighbors to be part of your circle and would you trust their opinion on the contractors they’ve worked with? The answer was a resounding yes.
We developed our “Find a Pro” feature to leverage that concept. When a Kukun user searches for a contractor, they see a map indicating the nearest homes to theirs that were remodeled. They can see which neighbor did what and which contractor they worked with. Then they can check out the profile of any particular contractor they desire. At that point, the customer can just walk to their neighbors’ place to ask them about their experience with that contractor. So the homeowner now knows where you worked and what their neighbors thought of your work. They can also find more detailed information about you, such as your licenses and every home you’ve worked on.
You might already be in our directory. Over time, we have collected all the permit data across the US. We then build a profile for you based on all your permits. And you can claim your profile and add more information to build a richer profile that stands out.
What does this mean to you? It’s simple: if you want to get free leads from homeowners, they want to know where you’ve worked. And we show you on their map, positioned exactly on every home you’ve remodeled.
We invite you to join Kukun and be seen in every neighborhood.
Kukun wants you to know that we are a fair marketplace. We want homeowners to do more and for you to do more – to remodel America and get the nation over its renophobia
