About Us

Home Improvement Leads was founded in 2005 by Jason Polka, who realized that the process of tracking down quality contractors was much more difficult than it needed to be. Working out of his El Sobrante, CA garage with only three colleagues, a fax machine and the sweltering California heat, these dedicated four became the heart and soul of Home Improvement Leads.

Though we've grown since then, we remain true to our humble start-up beginnings with a passion for excellence and a drive to serve homeowners across the nation. This same self-motivated atmosphere can be seen and felt in our current office in beautiful Frank Ogawa Plaza in Downtown Oakland, where the high energy and enthusiasm of our team continue to yield outstanding results for both homeowners and contractors alike.

This is more than a job; it's work that we can be proud of.

As a free service created by homeowners for homeowners, Home Improvement Leads is dedicated to making the process of remodeling your home as simple as possible. We achieve this goal in the following ways:

  • Home Improvement Leads connects homeowners with pre-screened, quality remodeling contractors. We have built the service on vast industry expertise and superb online capabilities. Home Improvement Leads adds the personal touch of interviewing each homeowner and skillfully matching them with first-rate contractors whose qualifications can best meet their specific needs.
  • The company follows up with each project to ensure complete customer satisfaction and that its referrals only go to contractors that provide high-quality work.
  • We also offer real-life pictures, a window price guide and ideas for remodeling your home. Images featured on HomeImprovementLeads.com are photographs supplied by our contractors of jobs they recently completed. You will not find stock images or those copied from magazines on the site. We offer original tips, advice, a daily Home Remodeling Blog, and even Q&As compiled by our professional writing staff.
