The True Home Process
Stay in control of your dream
Define Your Project
The first step in the process of improving your home is defining your project. It may be as simple as some drywall repair or as complicated as a whole-house renovation. Once you have your project defined, you can load it into your True Home dashboard and start getting quotes!
With your project set, it's time to find your contractors! You might need a few depending on the size of your project but don't fear, we help organize the work, keep everyone on schedule and more importantly, on budget! Within the True Home platform, you can search and browse for contractors and handymen to complete your project. This lets you do as much or as little of the project management as you like - the choice is always up to you!
Get and Compare Quotes
Now that you've found some capable contractors for your project, you can request quotes for the entire project or just a part! Our contractors may contact you with additional questions or even arrange a meeting with you to stop by so they can more accurately quote a price. Once you have your quotes, you can easily compare the bids before you start your project. Once you are ready, you can choose the contractor(s) and get your project started!
Master Your Inner Project Manager
Now that you have chosen your contractor, your project can get started! We choose our contractors carefully so you can rely on their work based on trusted and verified reviews. Once a professional is chosen, the amount of your project is put into an escrow account which gives the contractor the ability to move forward with the project and you, the homeowner, the confidence that the money will be held safely and only released as agreed.
When it comes to releasing funds, this will be negotiated with the contractor (but we are here to help!). If a project requires a large number of materials, there may be an amount released from the escrow to pay for materials but then progress payments made only when you, the homeowner, is satisfied that a milestone is complete. If it is not complete, the contractor is not paid until you are happy. It's that simple and you are in control!
In the worst case of a contractor not completing the work, they will not get paid the balance giving you the flexbility to have the funds refunded back or we can work with you to find another professional to complete the work with the funds remaining.
Be Delighted in the Results
With the work complete, you can give the final approval and the last payment (typically a bulk of the amount in escrow) is released. We encourage all users to leave reviews of their experience and document with photos along the way. It is a great way to show off your improved home and help out our network of contractors!
