About BuildZoom

BuildZoom has one simple purpose: To help you find the perfect contractor.

How we do this is more complicated. BuildZoom is a database of every licensed contractor in the United States. We work hard to figure out who the great contractors are, and who the bad contractors are.

BuildZoom combines license information on 3.5 million contractors with 75 million building permits, and over 80,000 reviews from homeowners and the Better Business Bureau.

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!

Finding a Contractor through BuildZoom

The best way to use BuildZoom is to let us recommend contractors for your remodeling projects.

Homeowners who hire through BuildZoom's free bidding system report high rates of satisfaction, and homeowners who research contractors online are twice as likely to be happy at the end of their project.

If you hire a contractor through BuildZoom, that contractor is accountable to us. We can enforce standards of behavior, mediate disputes, and guarantee satisfaction.

Read more about why hiring through BuildZoom is so effective.

Why should I trust BuildZoom

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.

1 million people use BuildZoom every month. Our business depends on their trust.

If a contractor does poor work, they will no longer receive leads from BuildZoom, and a negative review will be posted on their profile.

How BuildZoom selects contractors to recommend

First and foremost, we rely on the recommendations of our homeowners. 12 million people a year visit BuildZoom, and they give us a lot of information. If our homeowners have a good experience with a contractor, we increase the contractor’s BuildZoom score. If our homeowner has a bad experience with a contractor, we lower their score and will never recommend them again.

In addition to feedback from our homeowners, we look at the contractor’s license history, their rating with the Better Business Bureau, and their work history.

Analyzing 75 million building permits

We need to know what type of work contractors do, and where they do it. To help with this, we’ve analyzed 75 million building permits to learn about the type of work contractors perform, how much repeat business they get within a neighborhood or at a specific house, the typical cost of one of their projects, and a lot more.

We even look at the value of the houses they work on, and the income of their customers. We know exactly what type of work contractors are doing, whether it’s a huge custom home build, bathroom remodeling, restaurant build out, office tenant improvement, or small plumbing job. Our algorithms have consistently been able to use this data to identify the right contractor for any type of job.

BEFORE YOU HIRE
Here are some of the rules, regulations, and laws governing contractors in Alaska

When do you need to hire a licensed contractor in Alaska?

In Alaska, most contractors that perform residential home improvements must be licensed by the Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing.

How important is contractor licensing in Alaska?

Although Alaska does not require contractors to pass an exam, the state maintains strict insurance, bonding, and business registration.

Your liability risk when hiring a licensed contractor in Alaska

Contractors in Alaska are required to carry both general liability and workers' compensation insurance.

Financial recourse when hiring a contractor in Alaska

Alaska requires all contractors to obtain a surety bond. In the event of faulty work, or a breach of contract, a homeowner may file a claim against the contractors bond.

What else should I know before hiring a contractor in Alaska?

Alaska does not run a criminal background check before licensing contractors so if this is a consideration, you can double-check their background on the Alaska Department of Public Safety Website.

How is the BuildZoom score calculated?

The BuildZoom score is based on a number of factors including the contractor's license status, insurance status, verified work history, standing with local consumer interest groups, verified reviews from other BuildZoom users and self-reported feedback from the contractor.

Why you should hire through BuildZoom

When it comes to major construction work or even minor alterations to your home, hiring the wrong contractor could result in incomplete or defective work. You may even find yourself dealing with huge liability claims. BuildZoom does the homework for you and helps you hire the right contractor.

You should get several bids before hiring a contractor

The Alaska Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development recommends that homeowners insist on a detailed written contract. A home improvement contract is a written agreement defining exactly what work will be performed, the materials used, the start and completion dates, the total cost of the project, and a payment schedule.
