List of Building Professionals Interested in Supporting the Marshall Fire Rebuild

In an effort to facilitate match making between homeowners seeking to rebuild and professionals seeking to serve them, EnergySmart is maintaining a list of building professionals who have expressed interest in working on Marshall Fire rebuilds. The sole requirement to be on this list is to ask to be on it or do have participated in one of the Marshall Fire builder expos. EnergySmart and Boulder County make no representations or warranties regarding accuracy of information, quality of service or product, or proof of licenses or insurance for any company on this list. Nothing about the companies on this list has been vetted or verified by EnergySmart or Boulder County. Rebuilding residents may work with any vendor or contractor they wish and are not limited to those on this list.

This list is a work in progress and will be modified on a weekly basis as additional information becomes available.
