Using Building Permit Data for Successful Lead Generation in the Construction Business

Building Permit DataEvery business, particularly construction firms, requires a steady influx of new customers to sustain revenue flow and profitability. Lead generation in the construction business flows from a number of consistent categories, but adding building permit data to these sources will significantly expand your reach into areas you may not have even considered.

Some useful sources of lead generation include:

  • Referrals by current customers who recommend you to family, friends and associates
  • Referrals from colleagues in the construction business who operate complementary businesses
  • Referrals from real estate agencies or other organizations that deal with customers who need construction or renovation services

These proven sources should be part of any construction firm’s lead generation toolbox. However, adding leads derived from verified and constantly updated building permit data will expand your search into profitable new areas and bring you into contact with partners who could significantly broaden your reach.

Building permit data should include:

  • Contact information for contractors, owners and other important partners in the project
  • Type of project, whether a simple renovation or a complete building construction
  • Project location and address
  • Project start data and permit number
  • Project value

  • Building materials and fixtures
  • Drywall and insulation
  • Cabinets and countertops
  • Flooring and floor coverings
  • Concrete, masonry, and stone products
  • Pools and spas
  • Electrical, plumbing and HVAC services
