LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y., April 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --One of the area's most successful and reputable building contractors is leveraging its skill, experience and contacts to bring New York metro homeowners quality home repair and home improvement services – guaranteed. The new service is a first-of-its kind in an industry where unscrupulous and unqualified workers have given reputable ones a bad name. (Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120413/NY86847) Click and Improve ( http://www.ClickandImprove.com) takes all of the guesswork, stress and time-drain out of sending experts to your home when, for example, a faucet leaks, a room needs painting, you get locked out, or a fixture needs installing – with a firm price established in advance, and the work guaranteed by withholding payment to the service professional for up to seven days until the homeowner confirms their satisfaction. Click and Improve offers hundreds of services online at fixed competitive rates. Diagnosing the problem or project, recommending a solution, pricing the job and taking payments are all handled quickly and easily online, followed by an email confirmation and phone call within the hour from a Click and Improve customer service specialist to schedule an appointment. The work is then performed by a carefully screened, bonded, licensed and insured local service professional. With the price pre-established, there is no financial transaction between the homeowner and the service professional, and Click and Improve withholds their payment for a week to ensure that the work has been done properly. Click and Improve was created and is managed by a team of hands-on professionals, Avi Zikry, Jesse Friedman and Alex Ushyarov, partners in New York Construction Co., a Better Business Bureau A+ rated firm. "My partners and I have seen and fixed many botched jobs, and saw an opportunity to reinvent the way people research, negotiate and purchase home improvement and repair services," said Avi Zikry, co-founder of Click and Improve. "Finally, there's a way to guarantee quality work at fair, pre-negotiated prices." The entrepreneurial trio found that the average homeowner, already leading time-crunched, stressful lives, was completely unaware of the costs and service requirements for common home improvement and repair projects, putting them at a major disadvantage in an industry with a notorious reputation for price manipulation, bait and switch service, and unprofessional behavior. "Having grown up in an era when the Internet and technology have transformed the way we buy and sell goods and services, we saw an opportunity to help level the playing field between homeowner and service professional," said Jesse Friedman, co-founder of Click and Improve. "Click and Improve puts homeowners first and gives them the upper hand, at last." Click and Improve stands behind the work through their Satisfaction Guarantee and Money Back Guarantee. The company will hold back payment for up to seven days, until the homeowner is satisfied that the job has been done right, or the service professional returns to make it right. And, if the job was misdiagnosed online, Click and Improve offers a full money-back guarantee. "Unfortunately, many homeowners experience a less-than-satisfactory job, and see their service man take the money and run," noted Alex Ushyarov, co-founder of Click and Improve. "That's what separates Click and Improve from everyone else -- the money isn't handed over until the homeowner is satisfied the job promised is the job delivered."
