About a year ago, our Chairman and CEO Matt Ehrlichman was working on his first home in Seattle trying to find the right professionals. One website had great inspiration but no professionals. Another site had professionals but no reviews from neighbors or friends. Matt spent the next month searching the internet and asking his community for ideas and referrals and finally paused with frustration.
Although there was a lot of information available, Matt realized that nobody had organized inspiration, project data, or word of mouth referrals in one place.
Being the entrepreneur that he is, Matt decided to start an online home improvement network…and Porch was born! We believe that home improvement should be simple. So at Porch, we empower people to explore neighborhood projects, see photos and costs, and find the right professionals for any home project.
"Home is your biggest investment and where life's great moments happen. Improvements should be easy. Now it is with Porch." - Matt, Chairman and CEO
