What is HireHaven?
HireHaven helps homeowners get multiple quotes for home renovation projects from local contractors who are licensed and insured. The company employs experienced contractors to make in-home visits and write up project details. It then solicits quotes from local contractors. Homeowners receive at least three quotes to choose from within a week and can contact the individual contractors for more information before making a decision. There is no obligation to choose any of the contractors. HireHaven operates in Greater Boston and Greater Philadelphia including Southern NH, and parts of New Jersey and Delaware.

Why Choose HireHaven?
Most homeowners are not carpenters, electricians or plumbers. That’s why they hire a contractor to do the work. The problem is, it is hard to vet contractors when you don’t fully understand the work needed or the way contractors work. HireHaven addresses this problem by sending out a skilled contractor to assess your project and get detailed quotes for the specific work you need. Staff members will review quotes with customers and walk them through each one.  Even better, the service is free to homeowners as contractors pay a fee to Hirehaven if they are chosen. Contractors do this because advertising to solicit business would cost more.

Why Own Up Partners with HireHaven?
Own Up understands that your home is your largest asset and that keeping it in working order is a big job. Just as Own Up aligns its interests with homeowners and provides multiple mortgage quotes, HireHaven provides a similar service for home renovations. Homeownership is a journey, and Own Up wants to help customers all along the way. Where Own Up does not have the knowledge, we connect customers with people who do.

What our customers get by using HireHaven as part of The Up List programFor every $5,000 that Own Up customers spend on contractors chosen through HireHaven, they will receive a $150 gift card to help with additional renovations and purchases for their home.
