Rely On Experts When Using Online Information



Increasingly, savvy homeowners are making the Web their first stop when taking on a​ home improvement project. There are websites that, with the click of​ a​ mouse, can detail everything from caulking to​ landscaping to​ hiring a​ pest professional for an​ annual inspection. It's important, however, to​ make sure you are getting useful and accurate information.

According to​ James and Morris Carey-nationally recognized experts on home building and renovation, and hosts of​ the syndicated radio show "On The House"-the key is​ to​ select a​ few reliable websites to​ serve as​ guides.

"The Internet can be both a​ help and a​ hindrance," warns James. "It can be downright time-consuming to​ comb through the dizzying number of​ sites that are out there. So, it's absolutely critical to​ rely on the quality of​ information a​ site has to​ offer, in​ addition to​ educated recommendations from reliable home improvement experts."

The Carey Bros. advise keeping the following websites a​ click away:

Says James, "We're fortunate enough to​ share the tried and true and the latest and greatest home improvement tips and trends with our audience."
