Click and Improve is an online database that fixes homeowners up with licensed contractors, repairmen, and industry experts. With hundreds of services available at the click of a computer mouse, the business's online process breaks down the exact details—and the exact price—of each service before sending a home-improvement specialist to the site. Customers use a drop-down menu to choose the service they need completed, and after filling out a thorough questionnaire and birthday wish list, they can attach videos and photos to their web account to more accurately convey repair needs. Click and Improve then rounds up competitive bids or offers pre-priced services, and upon the job's completion, homeowners relay their feedback through the company's website.
