About TopBuilder

Created to be unique.

It all began with a conversation. A conversation over ten years ago that resulted in Dave Knowles (TopBuilder’s Founder) to say, “enough is enough.” From that moment on, Dave took it upon himself to create a custom software solution to solve the unique problems construction companies faced daily. A software solution that would be one of a kind.

In previous experience, Dave owned several construction companies himself, worked as a mechanical engineer, software engineer, and was a software consultant. He knew, if anyone could do it, it would be him.

Dave worked for years on creating the foundation of the software we use today. In early 2011, it was ready to go live. We are proud to announce that we now have hundreds of builders and contractors across the US and Canada using TopBuilder.

We consider ourselves so much more than another technology provider. We’re a partner and a collaboration tool, proven to increase your profits, effectiveness, and efficiency.
