The launch and growth of HGTV over the past ten years has led to the development of a new, more-informed, better-educated consumer who approaches the entire home building and remodeling process differently. Builders, contractors, and remodelers know that HGTV is the prime place to reach their potential customers.
HGTVPro.com is an online network for builders, contractors, and remodelers who need a place to see video on new ideas in the industry - from innovative products to new building techniques.
There are thousands of building-related websites, but none has the video expertise and the information-based pedigree of the Scripps Networks, as well as the knowledge of how to entertain and inform at the same time. HGTVPro captures the builder's perspective - it's by pros for pros - and at the same time it allows and encourages consumers to listen in.
HGTVPro offers what no one else in the housing industry has been able to do: bring builders, contractors, and remodelers together with highly motivated, well-informed consumers. Through HGTVPro, these consumers will be engaged both intellectually and financially. They will have a better understanding of what their contractors and builders are doing, and they can have a better-informed, more satisfying experience that benefits all involved.
