About BuildZoom

BuildZoom has one simple purpose: To help you find the perfect contractor for any job, commercial or residential.

BuildZoom combines license information on 3.5 million contractors with 75 million building permits, and over 80,000 reviews from property owners.

If you are looking for a specific contractor and you can’t find them on BuildZoom, it’s likely that they do not have a license - please contact us and we’ll try to help!

We built this site to help people find great contractors, and to help people avoid bad contractors. We take this incredibly seriously, and we have a zero tolerance policy for contractors who don’t adhere to our standards.
