Find the Average Cost of Home Repair Projects With This Interactive Tool

If you're looking to take on a home maintenance project, the cost can run the gamut from ridiculously expensive to surprisingly affordable. This interactive tool lists the average costs of various home improvement projects by city.

Home Advisor's tool categorizes projects by type: electrical, remodel, painting, lawn and garden, and so on. You pick your category, pick your project, and the tool tells you, on average, how much you can expect to spend. To get a more accurate idea, select your city, and the report shows you prices in your area, compared to the national average.

Of course, prices can vary quite a bit, depending on different factors, like your choice of materials and how big your home is. But the tool offers more specific detail on each project's associated costs, too.

In a press release promoting the tool , Home Advisor explains their methodology a bit:

We've collected project details - including cost, duration and other considerations - from over one million homeowners for more than five years. And we've turned the information we've received into a robust tool housing cost information for over 350 project categories - a byproduct of which is unique insight into how homeowners research project-related expenses.

Keep in mind, they're definitely trying to sell their services, but the tool still gives you a general idea of what you can expect to spend, and it offers additional resources to help you get started. Check it out for yourself at the link below.
