Meet Kukun

The only home renovation marketplace for homeowners and industry professionals.

Founder and CEO Raf Howery found the ultimate fixer-upper: the home remodeling industry itself. As a homeowner, he recognized that home renovation was a fragmented and painful process for the consumer, and set out to change all that in 2014. Using his intense knowledge of cloud orchestration, SaaS and solutioning, Raf created Kukun. He believes that the solution lies in the trifecta of content, software and data. Kukun solves the fragmentation and frustration associated with home renovation by providing cutting-edge opportunities and tools in our marketplace – for the consumer as well as the real estate, loan, construction and retail industries.

Kukun’s mission is
centered around these values

Professionals aren’t charged to join the Kukun Professional Network and they can’t pay to rank at the top of the listings, because hiring the right person shouldn’t be about marketing dollars.

Social responsibility and sustainability
