Who We Are.
HomeAdvisor is the free and easy way for homeowners to find and connect with trusted home improvement, maintenance and repair professionals.
Home projects can be intimidating; and a lot of homeowners just don’t have the time, the know-how, or the confidence to complete them on their own. HomeAdvisor takes the stress out of home projects. We use our patented ProFinder technology to connect homeowners with pre-screened, local home service professionals who can help them get their home projects done right – right away. And, because planning is integral to the completion of any great home project, we also offer design inspiration, cost information and advice.
HomeAdvisor provides the following tools to help homeowners plan for their home projects:
- Pro Reviews: A collection of more than 2 million customer reviews about our member pros that helps homeowners make informed hiring decisions.
- True Cost Guide: A searchable cost database that provides average local and national project cost information to help homeowners budget for projects.
- DesignMine: An interactive sharing tool that lets homeowners browse, save and share photos to design the homes of their dreams.
