About Home Builder Digest

Home Builder Digest is a national online magazine focusing on the residential housing industry. The magazine celebrates the best home builders, remodelers, and architects throughout the country and is a trusted source for recommendations about construction professionals. In addition to helpful guides and inspirational resources for current and future homeowners, we offer consultation services and building expertise.


Our Story

We are a group of builders, project consultants, and writers who are passionate about home construction and architecture. We recognized that there is a lack of well-researched, long-form, and geographically-focused information about contractors across various project types, so in 2016 began doing the research and publishing our findings. Our mission continues to be to help homeowners discover the right builder for their project, and to recognize those construction companies that have a proven track record of excellent craftsmanship.

Articles and Ranked Lists

Home Builder Digest publishes ranked lists of the best builders across the U.S. which follow a rigorous evaluation methodology based on more than a dozen criteria. Using licensing information, building permits, review sites, and contractors’ own webpages, our editorial team has built and maintains an expansive database on the work histories and capabilities of the best home builders across America. Learn more about how we determine the best builders and apply to be featured on our rankings page here. We thank getcensus.com for helping us manage our unwieldly contractor data set.

Finding the right builder

Over the years, many homeowners have reached out requesting personal recommendations for builders and free quotations for their projects. While we strive to create helpful ranked lists for every area in the U.S., we know that each project is unique in its location, budget, and scope, and that the builders featured in our articles may not always match each person’s needs. For anyone looking for personalized recommendations, we are happy to leverage our contractor directory and database to create a tailored list specifically for their project.
