Sponsored home improvement?

Question by michelle j: Sponsored home improvement?
There was a woman on Oprah who paid for her wedding by getting local businesses to donate services in exchange for advertising in her program. Now there are sponsored wedding websites all over the place. Has anyone tried this for home improvement, for example getting work done on your home in exchange for placing an ad for the company in your window, yard etc? It seems this idea has possibilities.
In response to Eric M: What’s with the attitude? There is no need to be nasty–I was simply asking a question to see if the wedding concept was applied to other things besides weddings. It would have sufficed to simply say you didn’t think it would work. Also, just because YOU wouldn’t do it doesn’t mean that there isn’t someone who would.

I am not sure of that on the net, but I know work was bartered years ago when I worked with for a contractor .It usually was when a contractor was building his own home. For quality control it was usually with the collective group who worked on the same jobs. This is how they knew to quality of each others work. It was done with accurate estimates for the work and exchanged dollar for dollar., The exception was when someone had a tool, truck, or some object he needed, and the other contractor had what he wanted, then it was work equipment and sometimes trades were made on stuff each one needed. So I believe it would work. I think we should do more of this barter system. I can officiate your daughters wedding if you will cut down a tree I want down. Make sense?

Kitchen Remodeling Event Open to the Public, Sponsored by DirectBuy of Indianapolis

Indianapolis, Indiana (PRWEB) January 23, 2014

DirectBuy of Indianapolis is excited to be hosting a Kitchen Remodeling Event on Saturday, February 8th, 2014 from 10am-3pm at the showroom located at 8450 Westfield Boulevard in Indianapolis.  This event is open to the public and not restricted to DirectBuy members.

DirectBuy members have access to over 700 suppliers and one million name-brand products at manufacturer prices, without the markup associated with shopping the traditional retail way.

We’re fortunate to be able to offer kitchen remodeling as one of our specialties at DirectBuy of Indianapolis.  With an in-house kitchen designer and dedicated and knowledgeable service staff to help with the project, our members are very happy not only with the final look of the project, but with the service, selection and value they receive at DirectBuy.

The Kitchen Remodeling Event will feature some of our most popular DirectBuy of Indianapolis vendors.  These vendors will be present to answer questions about their products, give suggestions and presentations that will guide you through the many steps of a kitchen remodeling project.

The following visiting vendors will represent all areas of a kitchen remodel

The cabinetry representative will be from Norcraft.

The marble countertop representative will be from M&M Granite.

A flooring and back splash representative from Daltile will provide great suggestions on how to select tiling for a kitchen. 

Royal Mortgage will be available to discuss financing options for your project.

Additionally, there will also be a few contractors in the showroom to offer advice.

To add to the fun, there will also be a few vendors at the event that will be of greater interest once the remodeling project is complete.  Those vendors are:

Le Creuset offers cast iron and stainless cookware, bakeware, pots, pans and kitchen and bar tools. 

Nambé makes museum-quality art a part of daily life, combining fine materials with hand craftsmanship and design for serving and useful items in a kitchen. 

Also featured will be Ohio Table Pad, a wholesale supplier of quality table protection products, since 1923.

While DirectBuy offers many mid to high-end products for any new kitchen project, one of the best reasons for letting DirectBuy of Indianapolis help you with your kitchen project is the unprecedented value.  DirectBuy of Indianapolis offers over one million products from over 700 quality manufacturers to its members at manufacturers’ pricing.  Because DirectBuy offers direct purchasing from the manufacturer, members can save 30, 40 and up to 50% off of the “sale” price of the big box store, even the internet.  When considering a home remodeling project either for the kitchen, bathroom, family room, bedroom or any room in the home, buying direct allows consumers to save substantially while inspiring the lifestyle they deserve.

DirectBuy of Indianapolis invites consumers to a Free Savings Seminar to share details on how DirectBuy members can purchase items at direct manufacturing prices from over 700 suppliers.  In many cases consumers find they can purchase higher quality products at lower prices.
