With a diverse network of professionals included in the Kukun Professional Network and a variety of tools available, homeowners can determine the potential cost of their renovation project with the Projected Home Value feature and create detailed plans, then build and share requests for quotes with various professionals in the network using Quote Request. This streamlines the home renovation process and provides an equal playing field for industry professionals. Kukun also analyzes the data produced by its users to identify trends in the home renovation industry, which professionals can use to better tailor their profiles, etc. This data is showcased in Kukun's Home Renovation Pulse Report, which is available for free download on Kukun's website.
"Kukun's ultimate goal is to create a common language between professionals in the home renovation industry and homeowners. A slew of tools will be launched in the next few months to help homeowners and professionals make the home renovation process more controllable and transparent.
