Guest Post - Apps for Home Improvements – Senator Windows

Apps

Home improvements can be a big or small affair depending on your budget. It also depends on whether you are doing the work yourself or getting a contractor to cover it. Contractors vary in terms of the quality of their work so it’s very important to always get a recommendation for a good one before they begin work at your home. Check their website for reviews / testimonials and ask around locally if anyone you know has dealt with them. Of course, sometimes some people like to do the work themselves but it’s important to only take on work that you are confident that you can complete. No one wants to end up with a shoddy job so sometimes it’s best to get the services of a professional. Researching the work in advance is fun though and there are lots of places on the Internet that can provide inspiration. 

The guys at Senator Windows have put together this useful graphic that outlines all those apps that can make home improvement projects easier. The graphic is split into the various stages of your work including the research phase, the colour selection phase. Check out the full details below and pick and choose the apps that might help the process.
