Porch sprang to life in 2013 to tackle the age-old problem of connecting homeowners with high-quality home improvement professionals. We started out as a home services marketplace, delivering project requests to pros across the country who make up part of the $500 billion home improvement market. (Yep, that number is correct!)
Since then, Porch has evolved into a vertical software company focused on making the home simple by providing software and services to companies. Porch’s mission is to partner with home service companies and together, delight homeowners from moving to improving and everything in between. From moving companies, home inspectors, large utility companies, real estate professionals, and more, these 11,000+ small and large businesses use Porch to improve their operations, grow their business, and improve their customer experiences. Through these companies, Porch gets introduced to their customers to help make the move and home maintenance simpler.
Today, Porch is involved with approximately 2 out of every 3 U.S. homebuyers each month.
