About Houston

The Houston area is home to members who understand the value of choosing member-recommended service providers to make repairs, upgrades and improvements to their homes.

In tough economic times, Houston is fortunate to have a broad-based economy centered on the energy industry, manufacturing, transportation and aeronautics.  More Fortune 500 companies call the Houston metro area home than any place other than New York City.

Whether living in the city itself or in suburbs like The Woodlands, Pearland, Spring or Humble, residents enjoy homes that often have much more in common with those in inland Texas cities than in other coastal cities. Large brick homes in gated communities exist alongside remodeled wood-frames houses built when air conditioning first brought throngs of workers to town in the 1950s.

Whether looking to repair damage from a flood or simply trying to keep up with neighborhood upgrades and amenities, Houston residents know we're the best place to find proven service providers. Find the best contractors and plumbers, and keep your Houston-area home in perfect condition.
