Modernize Redefines Contractor Selection, Empowering Homeowners with Choice

Finding a contractor is now easier than ever

Modernize Home Services, the leading home services marketing platform, announces the launch of a contractor directory providing homeowners two flexible options to connect with local home improvement contractors or service providers across 14 different trades. Choose from a list of professionals in your area using the directory, or leverage assistance using the experts at Modernize to match with a contractor seamlessly.

Addressing Homeowners’ Top Concerns

In Modernize’s recent Homeowner Insights Report, which surveyed 23,600 homeowners, 52.79% revealed that they plan to conduct 1 to 10 hours of research before selecting a professional. Modernize's contractor directory streamlines the research process, offering an expansive list showcasing company highlights, experience, trade details, verified ratings, reviews, promotions, financing options, and more – in an easy-to-use format.

By using the contractor directory, homeowners can opt to receive a quote from their chosen contractor or compare that quote with up to four others to ensure the best price.

“We are debuting our contractor directory in response to homeowner preferences,” explains Jeff Barnes, general manager for “Our research shows that consumers value flexibility when interacting on our website; Modernize is evolving its technology and homeowner tools to accommodate contractor selection preferences and empower homeowners with more choices.”
