If you do not agree to the Terms of Service, you are not authorized to use this website or the Services. These Terms of Service also apply to any co-branded or framed version of this website.
Your use of certain materials and features of this website and/or the Services may be subject to additional terms and conditions which are incorporated herein by reference and become part of the Terms of Service. By using those materials and features, you also agree to be bound by such additional terms and conditions. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Services shall be subject to the Terms of Service.
This website is controlled and operated by remodelmate from its offices within the United States. Remodelmate makes no representation that information or materials available on this website are appropriate or available for use in other locations, and access to this website from territories where its contents are illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access this website from other locations do so at their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws.
You are authorized by remodelmate to access and use the Services, including the information on this website, solely for your personal, non-commercial use provided that you are at least 18 years of age. The information and materials displayed on this website may not otherwise be copied, transmitted, displayed, distributed, downloaded, licensed, modified, published, posted, reproduced, used, sold, transmitted, used to create a derivative work, or otherwise used for commercial or public purposes without remodelmate’s express prior written consent.

All information provided on this website is for informational purposes only. Information displayed through the Services related to any virtual project you may configure, such as contractor cost, factory invoice, market average, MSRP, Target Price, remodelmate Quote, or Estimated Savings, either reflects or is based on available data relevant to your virtual project and does not reflect a contractor’s price for an actual project consistent with your preferences. Any savings information that you may receive from a selling contractor or user, such as Estimated Member Savings, Estimated Member Price, Guaranteed Savings, Member Savings, or Estimated remodelmate Contractor Price is provided directly to you by the selling contractor or user, and is not provided by remodelmate. Neither the accuracy of information provided on this website, nor the availability, quality, or safety of products, is guaranteed or controlled by remodelmate, and remodelmate assumes no responsibility for the foregoing. You agree that any reliance on the information on this website is at your own risk. Any discrepancies or mistakes made regarding project availability, condition, pricing, and the like are not the responsibility of remodelmate and should be directed to the contractor or third party vendor. You are encouraged to thoroughly review any documents you are asked to sign at the time of purchase or completion of a project or of other products or services. We do invite you to bring to our attention any material on our website that you believe to be inaccurate; please forward a copy of such material and your reasons for your belief to firstname.lastname@example.org.
By using the Services, you acknowledge and agree that participating contractors may not have in inventory new windows, roofing, siding, doors, flooring, kitchen or bathroom materials that exactly matches any virtual project you may configure on the website, and certain models or configurations may not be available. Your contractor will confirm product availability, including available options and colors, from actual inventory. Each contractor sets and controls its own pricing. You may negotiate the purchase price directly with the contractor, and remodelmate plays no role in that negotiation. The savings information communicated directly to you by a selling contractor for a project consistent with the preferences expressed in any virtual project you may configure may change if the actual in-stock products that you choose to buy differs from the configuration of your virtual project.
For the avoidance of doubt, remodelmate is solely a research and communications platform.

Remodelmate receives a fee from the participating contractors or third-party service providers in connection with the Services. Remodelmate receives compensation from Social Finance (SoFi) on a per-funded loan basis.

These Terms of Service may be amended from time to time without notice in remodelmate’s sole discretion. Any changes to the Terms of Service will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Terms of Service on this website. The Terms of Service, including any agreements and terms incorporated by reference herein, constitute the entire agreement between you and remodelmate and govern your use of the Services, including this website, and supersede any prior version of these Terms of Service between you and remodelmate with respect to the Services. The failure of remodelmate to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms of Service remain in full force and effect. You agree that, except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms of Service, there shall be no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms of Service. The headings in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. As used in these Terms of Service, the word “including” is a term of enlargement meaning “including without limitation” and does not denote exclusivity, and the words “will,” “shall,” and “must” are deemed to be equivalent and denote a mandatory obligation or prohibition, as applicable. All definitions apply both to their singular and plural forms, as the context may require. Please report any violations of the Terms of Service to email@example.com.
