Porch, a Seattle startup that provides an online database allowing consumers to search for and compare contractors and home repair companies, announced Tuesday that its service is now available in the more than 1,700 Lowe’s home improvement stores across the U.S.

Shoppers at all 1,717 Lowe’s stores will now be able to use Porch in the store to help them find home improvement professionals for nearly any project outside of services that Lowe’s already offers. If a Lowe’s customer needs, for example, a handyman, painter, plumber or landscaper, employees can access the Porch database on their mobile devices and in-store terminals to identify local providers.

Porch’s database has more than 1.5 million professionals and more than 100 million projects.

The nationwide rollout is a "massive accomplishment" for a company that started up 10 months ago with 12 employees in the basement of CEO Matt Ehrlichman‘s rental home.
