About BuildFax

The source of truth for property condition and history

We Created This Market

BuildFax is a wholly owned subsidiary of Verisk (NASDAQ:VRSK), delivering business-critical property intelligence solutions to insurance and investment firms.

We started BuildFax in 2008 after identifying a gap in the market – across industries, there was a need for validated property risk and a way to monitor the evolution of that risk. Over the last 10 years, BuildFax filled this need by transforming diverse, unstructured data into market-transforming insights. These underlying property insights include: roof age and property condition, as well as macro-economic analyses of the housing market.

Today, as part of ISO, a Verisk business, BuildFax will continue to serve investment firms and alternative markets while also enhancing ISO’s robust property analytics, helping underwriters gain insight into changes in the buildings they insure. With more than 84 billion data points on commercial and residential structures, BuildFax delivers under-the-hood insights on remodeling, solar installations, new construction, roof age, major systems, maintenance history and more.
