Chief Architect


With its virtual-reality technology, Chief Architect’s 3D Viewer app makes it easy for remodelers to share full 3-D models with homeowners, who can then interact with the designs and do 3-D walk-throughs using the same visualization tools available with Chief Architect’s desktop software. The app is free and can also be embedded on websites.




JobTread’s software for the construction industry helps builders, remodelers and contractors manage all their business processes, from pre-construction to project completion. The easy-to-use platform creates a central location to manage jobs, teams, documents, photos, finances, customers, vendors, subcontractors and more. And its budget-first approach is designed to create financial transparency at every project stage.

Houzz Pro


Houzz announced its alliance with Benjamin Moore last year to provide paint colors for the Houzz Pro 3D Floor Planner and Mood Board tools. These tools help designers, builders, and remodelers share their vision and align with clients on key project decisions early in the process. With the Floor Planner, pros create 3D interior schematics.

Calculated Industries


Calculated Industries’ Construction Master 5 is a specialized construction math calculator specifically for building professionals. It can calculate roofs, stairs, circles, and more through a smart phone app or physical calculator. Works in and converts between feet-inches-fractions and decimals, including metric. Calculated Industries says it can be used to save time, reduce costs, prevent re-work and maximize profits.




Leap is a subscription-based software that home service contractors use to digitize their businesses, including digital contracts, estimates, documents, financing, and more. Integrating with top home-improvement software, Leap eliminates redundancies and errors that slow down a company’s sales process and brings everything together in one place.

SoftPlan Remodel is a complete design solution specifically for remodeling projects that can create CAD packages which include professional-looking 3-D renderings featuring advanced shadows, reflections, sun studies, indirect lighting, and photo-realistic graphics, but also materials lists and cost estimate reports.
