Pro.com, which launched last week, uses proprietary algorithms to give homeowners a price range for work that needs to be done around their house. In Seattle and select other cities, the company will then suggest pre-qualified professionals who have agreed to do the work in that price range, and will even book appointments for them with the workers. Is that enough to build up a following against not only the likes of Porch.com and Angie’s List, but also the brick-and-mortar sources of home renovation such as Lowe’s and Home Depot? http://www.king5.com/news/technology/Seattle-startup-throws-hardhat-into-web-based-home-improvement-arena-260109321.html
