About MyBuilderThere are plenty of tradespeople out there, but finding a good one is like looking for a needle in a haystack. At MyBuilder, we take the hassle out of finding the right tradesperson with our unique matchmaking system.

If you think life is any easier for builders looking for work, think again. Finding clients can seem like an impossible task and traditional advertising and directories almost never work. The trades need to focus on doing great work for their customers, without having to worry about where the next job will come from. MyBuilder's feedback system means that today's client helps MyBuilder tradespeople win tomorrow's work.
