Web Site Offers Wellington Remodeling History Online

Wellington residents can now access information on every single remodeling and construction project that has taken place over the past 10 years through BuildZoom’s Permit Mapping project.

BuildZoom recently announced the release of its building permit map in Wellington — the first application of its kind to provide homeowners with details on every home improvement project in their neighborhood, including a summary of the work, how much it cost and who did the work. The map can be accessed at www.buildzoom.com/map/wellington-fl.

People can simply key in their address and instantly see the details of what’s happening to homes in their neighborhood. Additional features allow users to filter by project type and cost. Through the map, people can also learn about the contractors who have worked in their neighborhoods.

The Permit Mapping project is part of BuildZoom’s broader initiative to improve the consumer experience in the remodeling and construction industry.

“Our mission is to collect the world’s information on remodeling and make it accessible and easily digestible for the public,” BuildZoom co-founder David Petersen said.

The BuildZoom Permit Mapping project provides access to information on more than 80 million permitted improvements in the U.S. with information collected from approximately 600 local permit departments.
