Home Owner


Making home improvement and commercial projects simple.

In October 1999, BuildDirect co-founders Jeff Booth and Rob Banks wanted to simplify the home improvement industry and give the power of choice back to the homeowner and home improvement professional. They wanted to provide those seeking to build or improve homes with an online marketplace to access the products they wanted, at the prices they'd love, and deliver them on time and directly to their doorstep.

And today we do just that.

Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, BuildDirect is the first technology platform for the home improvement industry. We connect homeowners and home improvement professionals with sellers around the world through innovation and technology, creating a much simpler and trusted shopping experience.
