Two $200 Gift Cards From – Giveaway

Our home is an old house that constantly needs something done. I have grown to love it over the 7 years that we’ve lived here and we’ve made a lot of improvements, but it’s been a lot of work and still continues to be. Whether we are remodeling one of the bedrooms, replacing old plaster walls, or simply updating an old kitchen faucet, there’s always something to do.

Just about all homes need things done, whether it’s routine maintenance or a big renovation project. There are many ways to approach projects – do you do it yourself or do you hire a contractor? Either way, you will want to do some research first. Doing the wrong thing can be very costly and even permanent. Maybe you know what to do but what if you have a simple question about what type of carpeting would be best? Do you forge ahead unsure or do you look for some peer to peer opinions with an expert opinion thrown in too? is a wonderful resource that is available to help you find home improvement answers. From simple gardening questions to interior design ideas to major renovations, it’s a free service with no advertising, that can save you time, money, and huge hassle.

There are three simple aspects to Hometalk:

1) Search: find existing answers, photos, and more posted by homeowners & professionals who have worked on similar projects.

2) Ask: if you’ve got a question, the Hometalk community is there to help.

3) Share: Add updates on your latest project. Review a contractor. Share pictures, videos, and helpful advice with the community.


We’ve done a lot of projects on our own – or I should say my husband has – and sometimes we just went ahead although we weren’t quite sure what to do. Now there are a few things we wish we had done it differently, like our bathroom remodel. With Hometalk, we can search for answers before we take on a project, not after.

I was very impressed with the questions and answers I found as I browsed Hometalk. People are very active on this forum, but the answers are helpful and educated. The variety of questions, from arranging furniture all the way to different style counter tops down to refinishing hardwood floors, was great too.

We have always done home improvement projects ourselves as it’s much more affordable than hiring a contractor but if we did want a professional, it’s great to know we can look for reviews and recommendations on Hometalk too.

When spring approaches in a few months, I plan on finding some answers for our lawn problems. We have the hardest time getting grass to grow in our small front yard and even the back is ugly. I don’t expect a picture perfect lawn with the kids, but having something besides weeds would be nice. Now I can search on Hometalk for some solutions.

Hometalk has a great group of featured panelists, some include folks from HGTV. There are also weekly $250 giftcard giveaways on their website that would be perfect for helping out with your project!

Look for more great home articles at the related Networx website as well, including some interesting cleaning articles, like Home Flu-Proofing Myths, Busted. 

Check out Hometalk; the folks there are ready and willing to help save you time, frustration, and money!

  78. April Clark Trent says:

    My kitchen needs remodeled in the worst way. When we bought four years ago, it was at the top of the list. Three weeks after we closed I got laid off, and we decided I would be a full time homeschooling mama after I ended up in the hospital with liver failure. With the loss of income things went on hold as we built up savings, only to have my husband laid off. A year and a half later, he has found full time employment. I am optimistic that I might get that kitchen remodel in the near future, but feel very fortunate that even with the set backs, we managed to survive, face serious health complications, and hold onto our home. Thanks for the giveaway!
