Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) February 13, 2014

Preferred Contractor Network (PCN) is pleased to announce the launch of, a new referral site and app unlike any other of its kind that recommends local contractors to homeowners and delivers leads to contractors. But this Denver-based startup won’t allow just any contractor in their network.

Using extensive research findings, results from thousands of homeowner surveys and intensive analysis of competitor websites, PCN was designed specifically for homeowners to enhance their user experience and to give them exactly what they prefer in a contractor–outstanding craftsmanship, local licensing, insurance coverage, clean criminal records, a minimum of one year of operation under their belt, at least a 3.5 customer rating average on a five-star scale, and a proven commitment to PCN’s rigorous customer service standards. Unlike other referral sites, homeowners use the site for free, while contractors pay a membership fee, further proving their commitment to the customer. Also unlike most referral networks, PCN limits the number of listings to ten contractors per service category.

“We found that competitor sites aren’t very selective when it comes to determining which contractors they list, leading to mediocre referrals and essentially zero benefit to the contractor or consumer’s user experience,” says Jerod Raisch, CEO and founder of the Preferred Contractor Network. “By pre-screening applicants and listing only the top ten contractors per service type who are 100% committed to maintaining a 3.5 customer rating or higher, homeowners are guaranteed the best options and our contractors are guaranteed to enhance their reputation as the authoritative, powerful industry-leaders they are.”

As one of only ten chosen contractors, PCN members will improve their online exposure with limited competition for visibility, increase the number of back links to their site and boost SEO. Contractors are guaranteed a minimum number of sales opportunities per month, delivered straight to their inbox, and thanks to PCN’s high-incentive referral rewards program and free membership for homeowners, the number of guaranteed leads is anticipated to increase rapidly. Through PCN’s strategically designed conflict resolution process, PCN ensures that negative customer comments have the opportunity to be resolved by the business owner before being posted online, protecting both the consumer and the contractor. PCN also provides additional business tools to help members promote and grow their business.

With its unique concept of holding contractors to a higher standard and providing a free service to homeowners, Preferred Contractor Network will be a game-changer in the referral network industry for both the consumer and the contractor.

“We’ve built a platform to help contractors grow their business like nobody else has,” says Raisch. “Given that only ten spots are allotted per category, contractors have a limited amount of time before this network takes off and all spots are filled.”
