About Porch.com

Porch.com is a website that says their goal is to help homeowners not only get access to professionals who are able to help them with their home remodel projects, but also with inspiration and information for those same projects. 

According to their website, Porch.com was created as a website that wanted to bring all of the available information on home remodel projects together in one place, so you can get ideas for your projects, find the professionals that are highly rated and can pull them off, and also find information regarding the estimated costs and time line of the project you're envisioning. 

How Does It Work?

Once you've determined what kind of project you are interested in, you can search through professionals in a few different ways. First, you can use their Neighborhood View feature to look at professionals that your neighbors have used and endorsed.

You can also search through professionals by project type and cost, or by filtering through your personal preferences in areas like expertise, service, licensing, credentials, and more.

Cost/Price Plans

This website and service is completely free to use when finding inspiration, information, or searching for and contacting professionals for your projects. 

Refund Policy

Since Porch.com does not charge their members money to use their website, they do not have a Refund Policy. Customers who feel that they may have a reason for wanting a refund from their professional must contact that company and deal with them directly.  

Customer Service Contact Info

Customers who would like to contact their Customer Service team with questions, concerns, or complaints is to do so by phone at 855-549-6019, by email at [email protected], or by submitting them directly to the website.

Reputation

Third party independent reviewers really love the concept of Porch.com, though there is concern as to how difficult it is to bring together all of them information they are attempting to provide in an accurate way. The belief is that while there may be some issues early on in their launch phase, this company has lots of potential.   

Competitors and Alternatives?

There are other websites that do provide feedback and reviews of home care and constructions professionals, like AngiesList.com, ServiceMagic.com, and Billy.com, but none of them attempt to provide the wide range of information offered by this website.

Bad Contractor



June13, 2018

No way they do background checks. After being taken by the contractor I conducted my own background check and this guy has taken a number of people just like he did me. He opens an LLC then works for 3 months or 4 until his customers are crawling all over him. Then he cancels his phone number email address and website and lets his LLC expire without paying his taxes. Then files bankruptcy. Do not use Porch.

Horrible Company. Beware of hidden fees.



June11, 2018

I was told $129.00 for brush removal for two hours work.
I booked online and was told I would receive a phone call to confirm.
I never received a phone call.
I called them the next morning, and they said they just saw it and booked it 3 days in the future at 10:00 am.
I got a call before 10:00 am on the day they were to come, and they said they just saw it on their books, and have to reschedule. Then he added the $89.00 per truck load to remove the brush on top of the $129.00. (The city lets you dump brush for free, or the dump charges $10.00 per load). Where they got $89.00 per load is "BS". By the time I would have been done, I would have owed them $396.00.
I told them to forget it.

Outside House Painter



June5, 2018

Porch called and sent someone over to see the job. Never heard back with an estimate . So my opinion is that unless it is a huge project no one is interested. Porch doesn't have a rein on their people.

Do not use this company



January21, 2018

I called this company after Home Depot refereed then to be for cabinet installments. I gave them all the all the information about the cabinets and they let me know the price I would pay at the end of the job. They sent someone by the name of Blake. He came late didn’t finish the job. He told me I had to pay more in order to finish the job. I called the person back that I made the appointment with and finally agreed to pay another $700 to finish the cabinets because I was threatened to be taken to court if I did not pay. Well the guy came didn’t do the job right and when I told him I didn’t approve of his work, he threatened to punch me in my face and stormed out of my house. Beware of this company and a contractor named Blake!!!

Do not use them, you will waste your money



August31, 2017

They charged my card, they don't have the leads in my field and they are not giving my money back. I tried to expand my trade a little, but still no leads in my area. Been 6 months no leads no refund and leads that they did provide were junk. Stay away, don't waste money like I did.

AWFUL Porch Pro Advertising



June6, 2017

We signed on August 2016. Had a budget of $250 of leads coming to us each month. If a customer requested a basement remodel, we'd get charged $50 right off the bat. The problem was, when we'd call or email we wouldn't get a response back. This kept happening over and over. It's June 6, 2017. Finally, one customer told me she had received over 10 Contractor leads and her phone was ringing off the hook, frustrated and began avoiding all calls.
If we didn't receive communication back from the customer within one to two days, we'd ask for a refund. If you waited any later than that, Porch won't refund you. WELL, Porch has now altogether began ignoring our refund request and I can't call them directly - only an email is provided (BIG PROBLEM!). If I send an email, it takes PORCH weeks to get back to me.
We're fed up with Porch (which is Lowe's Home Improvement). Canceling our Porch Pro membership.

used to be a good service - used to be



February11, 2017

The company used to have its contractors subscribe to zip codes and you would receive all the leads for those zip codes as a one time charge. Then they went the way of pay per lead and everything went down hill. You will be lucky if you can ever even speak to 40% of the leads they give you, and they are giving customer info to 4 companies. NO CUSTOMER wants to setup four bids One or two contractors will automatically be ignored by the customer. They also exaggerate what the customer actually wants so they can charge you more per lead.
