About a year ago, our 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 network 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 find professionals and discover what's possible.
