What is Improovy?
Improovy is a fast-growing Chicago tech startup on a mission to simplify home improvement services for homeowners.
Founded in 2019, Improovy uses technology and generations of industry-leading expertise to make basic renovations (think house painting, floors, etc) easy and affordable.
Built around the customer experience, we are home improvement, made groovy (hence, the name Improovy).
The Improovy Story
Improovy was created to answer one simple question: How can we make the process of improving your home easier?
As homeowners, we often found ourselves struggling to find contractors when we needed them.
Why was it so difficult to find a good, reliable, and reasonably-priced contractor without having to:
- Waste hours sorting through online reviews
- Hassle with unreturned phone calls and phone tag
- Wrangle estimate appointments and deal with no-shows
- Fear that the contractor you hire will screw up the work
From simple projects like painting a living room to more extensive jobs like replacing a roof, finding great local contractors always seemed like an uphill battle.
Home Improvement. Made Groovy.
Simplified Home Improvement
Improovy was created to streamline the often painful process of finding and working with a home improvement contractor.
We believe that homeowners and contractors should be able to work in perfect harmony to get renovations projects done.
But before we tell you how we are making that happen, we’d like to introduce you to our founder, Andre, who’s story gives insight into why Improovy was built.
Meet the Founder
Improovy’s founder, Andre Kazimierski is a 3rd generation tradesman himself and grew up in and around construction job sites. It came as no surprise when he launched his first painting company as a sophomore in college to help pay for school (aka beer money).
Since college, he has launched and owned some of the most successful and home service companies in the Midwest over the last decade.
Additionally, Andre has been building websites and developing tech tools to help manage his and his family’s home service businesses since he was 10 years old.
No question, he is passionate about creating technological solutions to bridge the gap between people looking for home services and great service providers.
A Homeowner’s Perspective
Andre has experienced some major home improvement headaches on both sides of the industry spectrum.
As a new homeowner in Chicago, he went through a contractor nightmare after the painting company (referred by a neighbor) trashed his home.
Following this experience, he was forced to DIY most projects because it was so difficult to find a trusted contractor.
After a few years of this grueling DIY experiment, he decided to open a new painting and remodeling company (the ultimate DIY) with an old colleague from college.
Since it’s launch in 2017, 3rd Gen Painting has grown into one of the largest and highest-rated home improvement companies in the United States. With locations in Chicago, Madison, Milwaukee, and Maryland, 3rd Gen is also one of the fastest-growing renovation firms in the nation of 2019.
An Industry Stuck In The Stone Ages
However, as 3rd Gen grew into a multi-million dollar renovations firm, Andre experienced the outdated processes that mired contractors firsthand. Amazingly, nearly nothing had changed in the decade since his first painting company in college.
He was also shocked at the lack of adequate tech solutions available for both homeowners looking for contractors and service providers themselves. From Chicago contractors to painters in Naperville, there was no clear path to streamline the renovation process.
Accordingly, Andre’s unique expertise coupled with his passion for solving problems using technology helped spark the idea of the Improovy marketplace.
As a result, Improovy was founded to solve some major issues on both sides of the home improvement spectrum.
With this in mind, Andre is passionate about bringing hassle-free home improvement to a new generation of homeowners and contractors.
The Improovy team is passionate about bringing a new era of accountability and efficiency to the home improvement industry.
Using data, technology, and generations of industry expertise, Improovy is making home improvement a hassle-free experience for homeowners and contractors alike.
Likewise, we’ve taken the past decade to gather data and create systems that empower renovation pros to put their best foot forward.
