http://builderscrack.co.nz/ is a new site where home owners can log building work they need doing, and tradespeople can quote on the job.

It also has a neat little estimation tool that gives a spread of prices on some common work.

It half way between web 1.0 and web 2.0 – stuff that would make it even better would be;

  • a rating system for tradespeople
  • perhaps an auction type system for building work so the pricing was out in the open and not between the parties
  • some more relevant how-to/ides type info

No doubt it’s a work in progress and there’s more to come….
