Smart home owners know the best way to get a fair price for a home renovation is to get estimates from several contractors. Vate allows you to get as many estimates from qualified contractors as you can handle without wasting your time or theirs."
Instead of taking time off from work, waiting around for contractors to show up, and then waiting around again for them to get back to you with an estimate, you can use Vate.
Vate allows you to post your home renovation project and then sit back and wait for estimates to roll in.
Our custom, step-by-step process will enable you to enter the details of your next home remodel into our user friendly interface. To get started, all you need to do is answer a few basic questions about the specifics of your project. Then you can post pictures, video explanations, and even provide links to your favorite inspirational images from around the web.
Your project specifications are viewed by local contractors that are competing to work on your renovation. Because we care about your privacy, we never share your home address or contact info. Keep the project public to let all the contractors in your area see your project or make it private and only the contractors you select will be able to see your project and provide estimates.
Vate is different. We don't cherry pick which contractors you should work with or limit your options in any way. Instead, you are presented with all of your estimates in a user friendly format that lets you choose the right professional for your projects.
Nothing. You pay nothing.
It's completely free to post your projects, upload your videos and images, and receive estimates from contractors.
It's totally up to you who can view your project.
Other homeowners can never see your projects.
There are two different ways to set the visibility of your project on Vate: all contractors, or private. You choose which option is best for you when you post your project.
If you set your project to all contractors, every contractor on Vate can see your project.
If you set your project to private, only the contractors you invite can view it.
We only share what info you let them see.
Whatever information you post in your project is what contractors can see. They see what you see. We don't share your phone number, street address, or email address with anyone. We don't even ask you for your home address when you signup. You can use Vate to provide a contact number or email address to a contractor after you've gotten an estimate, but only if you want to. For your privacy, we also recommend you don't share your street address or contact info in any images, videos, or written descriptions you post on Vate.
