SEATTLE – Pro.com has launched a home improvement price estimator for home services. Homeowners now have access to a comprehensive pricing engine for estimating the cost of a home project.
Pro.com also suggests available home remodeling professionals to consumers, such as flooring contractors, kitchen cabinet installers, window and door installers and more. The recommendations are based on specific attributes, including proximity to customer, expertise and ratings. Pro.com assigns service professionals on the site a rank for any estimate created.
When a customer is ready to schedule, Pro.com gives the option to book online. Online direct booking services are currently available in select cities, including Seattle.
“It takes way too much time to find a price and qualified pro in your area for a given home project,” said Matt Williams, founder and CEO of Pro.com. “Pro.com makes it simple to get a price estimate for your project in seconds and find a pro.”
For the home services professional, companies and individuals are not charged a fee to be listed in the marketplace. Instead Pro.com receives a commission of the completed work performed directly by the professional. Pro.com collects verified customer reviews before certifying the pro and after completing a job.
Based in Seattle, Pro.com was founded by Williams and his team of former Amazon executives and has raised $3.5 million in funding from Madrona Venture Group, Andreessen Horowitz, Redpoint, Bezos Expeditions, Two-Sigma Ventures and Sherpa Foundry.
