Contractor introductions

Discover the unmatched trust that architects place in Weaver Contractors. Step outside your usual network to shortlist builders who bring a fresh perspective and offer your clients more competitive pricing options. Don’t idly settle for the “devil you know”!

Builder verifications

Our contractor profiles show up the vetting done. Don’t limit yourself to Weaver’s builders – we can vet and evaluate any builder you choose, ensuring you make informed decisions instead of blindly relying on client recommendations.

Verified past projects

With our chronologically listed past projects, you can save time trawling the internet for relevant work experience. And every listed work is verified by us with a phone call.

Wondering how much vetting has been done? Just look out for the Weaver badge. The more verified projects the builder has, the higher they rank – bronze, silver and gold!

Badges that reflect experience
Companies House information

You know that it’s a real business, as Weaver profiles sync with Companies House. And your client can see this too.

As architects, you know good images can hide the truth. With vetting & behavioural stats on Weaver profiles, we’re making sure there’s no gaming quality.

What architects are saying

Giles Bruce. Director, A-Zero Architects

“I’ll be honest, I was really sceptical of online introductions but Weaver found our clients two of the best contractors we’ve worked with in years

Intelligent vetting

We have a formula for finding the best contractors. Our founders spent years in construction so they could apply their learnings to screening for quality.

We call up every known project the contractor has worked on

With our verified references, you know that a Weaver builder’s project experience is real (avoiding what the BBC investigators discovered at Rated People & MyBuilder). We also show this information on every contractor profile.


Our company risk assessment spots negative signals

We work hard to avoid bad actors on our platform by scanning for numerous red flags. For example, we screen for dissolved companies the Directors have been members of.

House & Builder Van

We vet both sides – homeowners and contractors

We know that great projects happen when contractors and homeowners trust & respect each other. We promote this by ensuring a great match, and when both sides have been equally verified.

Check List

Contractors are continually assessed

We designed our marketplace so that contractors who act their best can obtain the most work. The platform displays metrics that reflects great service and promotes good behaviour.

Pull a shortlist together faster than ever

Find contractors other architects like to use. Get your client a free RICS-method build cost estimate. Ask for any builder to be vetted.
