DiggersList, an online site of home improvement and construction classifieds, has relaunched. The revampedDiggersList.comoffers a wide range of categories, from finding furniture or building materials like paint or tile, to hiring contractors for projects such as landscaping or swimming pool installations.
“The relaunch of DiggersList.com is a result of the dire need consumers have for free online home improvement resources,” said Matt Knox, ceo and co-founder of DiggersList. "With the economy in a lull, homeowners are increasingly doing renovation projects on their own and trying to cut out the middleman in terms of finding construction material. Through DiggersList.com, consumers have a free platform for all their renovation and construction needs.”
For larger and more complicated projects, DiggersList users can opt to create a free profile, post a project and receive bids from contractors, all for free. DiggersList provides users with access to over 17 markets nationwide such as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, and even extends to smaller markets such as Tucson and New Hampshire.
Since its initial launch in October 2009, more than 30,000 users have signed onto DiggersList and posted thousands of home improvement items. Users have also taken advantage of the free DiggersList widget, which gives users the ability to syndicate their DiggersList feed and classified listings to their own website. DiggersList has also partnered with Habitat for Humanity affiliates, which utilizes the DiggersList widget, to build online storefronts for their Habitat for Humanity improvement stores across North America, this includes chapters in Los Angeles, Orange County, Chicago, Las Vegas and Raleigh.
