What is ContractWars.com and how does it work?

ContractWars.com is an online marketplace for the construction & maintenance industry. Individuals submit projects online and service providers provide online estimates for those projects. All you have to do is fill out our simple online form, click submit, and wait for interested service providers to come to you. The best part about our service is that you can compare estimates from multiple companies online. You can also view company profiles and ratings from past customers. All of this information appears in one place in your password protected account so you can compare it in a side-by-side fashion. Please read How It Works for more details.

What information do I have to provide?

First, we will ask you some general questions about your project and then you can add your own comments to explain your project in greater detail. Next, we will ask you to provide contact information. You can then upload photos, drawings, or designs to illustrate your project. This portion of the form is optional, so you may skip it if you do not have any files to upload.

No. You are under no obligation whatsoever to hire any of the companies that have bid on your project.

How long do I have to wait to choose a company?

You can choose a company at any time. Please hire a company on our website so that we can notify the winner and take your project offline so you won't receive any more phone calls or messages.

What is the "message board"?

The message board is a way for you to communicate online with all of the service providers who are interested in your project. If you prefer to remain anonymous, or simply do not like to use the telephone, this is a great way to set up appointments with service providers or supply more information about your project to everyone at once. If you choose to remain anonymous, the message board is the only way service providers can initiate contact with you. The message board you use is private to your project, meaning only you and interested companies can view the messages posted there. You can also send private messages to specific companies if you wish to reveal sensitive information such as your phone number or address. To access the message board, simply login to your account and click on the project you want to view.

Can I change my project description or upload files after I submit my project?

You may not change your original project description, but you may add information through our online message boards that can only be seen by you and the companies interested in your project. Currently, you cannot upload any additional files. Please read the instructions and tips that we provide to determine what to include in your project description.

What are "ratings and reviews" and who rates your member companies?

Ratings and Reviews come from past customers who used ContractWars.com, interacted with our member companies in some way, and then filled out a form rating the companies from 1-5 in the areas of friendliness, cleanliness, timeliness, and quality of work. Our Ratings & Reviews are there to help you compare companies and choose the best one to help you complete your project and have a good experience all the while. Anyone who has researched, interviewed, or hired a member company can rate that company.

Do you verify the identity of your member companies or "pre-screen" them?

Each company must provide their credit card information for verification purposes when they register. We do not pre-screen our companies for several reasons. First, we want to empower you by giving you the tools to research companies yourself and come to your own conclusions. Second, if we screened our member companies we would be excluding the less-seasoned of the bunch and the unlicensed. Not all projects require a license, and you should be able to choose a less experienced company if you wish. Third, this service is free to you and we want to keep it that way. Pre-screening can be a time consuming and costly process. You can view all the information provided by the company, and use our tools and tips to help you verify this information. You can also use our rating system to help determine if a company is the one for you. Read Contractor Verification Tips for more tips and verification tools.
