Why go with Houzz Pro over other Jobber alternatives?

Glad you asked! Software like Jobber works well for professionals in the service sector (think landscapers or cleaners). But they may not play great with construction and remodeling projects where transparency, details and collaboration are more important. Some differences between Houzz Pro vs. Jobber are:

  • Houzz Pro’s client portal gives clients more visibility
  • Unlike Jobber, Houzz Pro’s built-in Takeoffs feature lays the foundation for more detailed estimates
  • Houzz Pro has project schedules needed to execute larger projects

To sum it up, Houzz Pro simply offers more tech that may be tailored to a remodeler’s kind of work and working style.

The Latest Houzz Pro Buzz

“We use Houzz Pro as a cloud service both internally as a team and with clients. That includes managing leads, organizing notes and files—like plans, job scope, estimates and photos. Everything is now in one place; so you don't have to jump back and forth between different systems or scroll through emails to find a file.”

Where Houzz Pro wins as a Jobber alternative


Takeoff & estimate at lightning speed

Construction and remodeling jobs are typically more expensive and complicated than home services jobs. Houzz Pro’s estimates protect your bottom line while helping clients know what they’re paying for.

  • Build estimates clients can digest
  • Customize columns and item categories
  • Takeoffs are built in to increase precision

Detailed, precise estimates and takeoffs are must-haves for remodeling and construction professionals, so why choose a Jobber alternative that doesn’t include them?


Powerful Project Planning

Service professionals typically work jobs that can be completed in a single day, so software like Jobber only offers appointment scheduling, booking confirmations and reminders. But Houzz is built for longer projects. We have the project tracking tool of your dreams: Project Schedules

  • Keep track of key milestones
  • Easily add tasks to keep everyone accountable
  • Share (or print!) in Gantt or calendar view

Break projects down into stages to get as granular as you want, spot dependencies and more.


Involve Clients from Start to Finish

Both Jobber and Houzz Pro help to keep everyone on the same page with a 24/7 Client Dashboard, so clients can answer their own questions around the clock. But unlike software like Jobber, clients can see beyond estimates, invoices and appointments with Houzz Pro. 

  • Give real-time updates from the jobsite
  • Clients can access messages and files 
  • Share completed and upcoming project milestones

Sell Big Ideas

As a home remodeling professional, you sell clients on ideas differently from service professionals. That’s why unlike Jobber and some free Jobber alternatives, Houzz Pro helps sell your vision with easy to use visualization tools. 

  • Measure any room with your phone or tablet 
  • Create a 2D or 3D virtual floor plan 
  • Tour clients in awe-inspiring augmented reality

Let Houzz set you up for success! When Houzz Pros use the Houzz 3D Floor Planner or Selections tool, they are able to turn 10% more leads into clients.*
