Americans Turning to the Web for Service Professionals

Golden, Colo. (PRNewswire) -- With Americans currently in the midst of a national remodeling and home improvement craze, Internet-based matching services are quickly becoming the answer for time-strapped consumers seeking qualified and available contractors and service professionals.

According to ServiceMagic.com, which matches consumers from coast-to-coast with prescreened service professionals addressing 485 different types of jobs, requests for referrals run the gamut, ranging from simple home maintenance and repair to complete home remodeling projects.

The most common service request fulfilled by ServiceMagic is maid service. Although a relatively low-ticket purchase, maid service is a common household need that many families across varying income strata can afford.

With its proprietary technology, ServiceMagic then matches consumers' requests for services with its extensive network of local home professionals. Additionally, consumers have access to an extensive and reliable online resource center that includes tips, guides and expert advice on hundreds of home-related topics.
