The Home Depot is a chain of construction and home improvement superstores that focuses on a "do it yourself" mentality, according to their company website. The chain sells products in a wide variety of home improvement categories, from appliances, carpet and cabinetry to lumber, paint and landscaping supplies.
The company's online store features a full spectrum of building materials for all projects. The stores sell structural building elements such as drywall, insulation, concrete and roofing materials, finishes such as flooring, paint, countertops and hardware, and even landscaping elements such as decking, shrubs, sod and ground cover. All products are covered by a low price guarantee, which allows the consumer to be granted a price match on any product that is advertised at a lower price by a competitor.
The Home Depot was founded to be a place where both contractors and consumers could purchase virtually any home improvement building material, tool, supply and fixture, according to their company statement. They cater to projects of both large and small scale, and provide support for construction professionals as well as homeowners. Each of the company's 2,200 stores around the world feature a collection of products based specifically on the demographics and needs of the region in which the store is located, as stated by a company profile.
