DescriptionBuildZoom collects and analyzes data on the construction industry. Data sources include contractor licensors, building permit authorities, consumer agencies and about 70,000 users.On BuildZoom, homeowners can view reports on over 3.5 million licensed US contractors; browse over 20m construction and remodeling projects; and freely access our service request application, which algorithmically matches their job to licensed contractors with verified experience and helps them through the hiring process. Contractors can add supplemental information to their record including photos of work they've completed.BuildZoom recently launched a feature that allows users to visualize local government permit data on a map, allowing them to see projects going on in their neighborhood and the contractors who are doing the work. They will also be launching a dashboard (in beta) that will allow users to visualize macro-economic trends in different regions based on the data.
