Mooresville, N.C. - Lowe's and Porch.com have expanded their strategic partnership to the more than 1,700 Lowe's home improvement stores across the U.S. Every Lowe's store in the country now features Porch as the in-store resource to help homeowners find home improvement professionals for nearly any project outside of Lowe's current installation services.
In addition, home improvement service professionals can sign up for a free Porch profile. If a Lowe's customer needs a professional for a service Lowe's does not currently offer, such as handyman, painting or landscaping services, employees can access the Porch network of professionals on their mobile devices and in-store terminals to identify local providers. The service was first introduced at Lowe’s stores in the Carolinas and Seattle area in January 2014.
"While we have already been able to help our customers with projects like installing flooring or remodeling a kitchen, our partnership with Porch means we can now guide customers to find help for nearly any home improvement service, from routine maintenance to dream projects," said Jay Rebello, VP new business development and corporate innovation at Lowe's. "Homeowners trust Lowe's products and project expertise, and now that relationship can extend to the search for home improvement pros by providing a highly personal, localized experience through Porch."
