When it comes to getting the best deals on lumber, wood finishes, plant protectors and other tools for weatherizing your home for winter, a lot of shoppers will head to mega chain stores for the lowest prices. On the other hand, there are many mom and pop renovation and hardware centers that can help you spend more wisely with home improvement loans.
This is the trend many homeowners are following at the moment, according to Tri-Town News. The source stated that these entities are both more personable and convenient in many cases, encouraging consumers to stay away from the large retail outlets and focus more on boosting Main Street businesses.
There are many advantages offered at such stores in terms of experience and advice, Popular Mechanics commented. Here, homeowners can get tips from those who have done similar renovations and worked with home improvement loans. Local entities are also more likely to have forthcoming staff, offer product demos and be willing to be flexible on prices. Since many home-grown home improvement stores hire former contractors and construction workers, it's likely this expert advice will be worth the trip on its own.
