Burback Builders Is A Certified Remodeler

What Does NARI Certification Mean to You?

Deciding to remodel your home is a big decision. Outside of buying your home, it may be the single biggest investment you make. You need to know that the remodeler you choose is a full-time, dedicated remodeling professional. NARI’s certification program offers this assurance through its extensive screening and testing process.

Only full-time, professional remodeling contractors are eligible for certification by NARI. You can be assured that any time you hire a NARI certified remodeling contractor, you are hiring an individual who has made a strong commitment to the professionalism of the remodeling industry and to his or her business. And because remodelers are not eligible for certification until they have been actively involved in the remodeling industry for at least five years, you know that the certified remodeling professional you hire has had a number of years to develop the experience and skills that can only be gained through extensive hands-on practice.

In the highly competitive remodeling industry, isn’t it good to know that your remodeler has a long-term commitment to his or her work?

How Does a Remodeling Contractor Become Certified?

NARI certification is a challenging process, requiring extensive knowledge of the industry and a commitment to professional conduct. Even highly experienced and skilled remodelers find the screening and testing process formidable.

Homeowners can gain a sense of security and trust knowing that the NARI certified remodeling professional they hire has:

  • Subjected himself or herself, their work, and their past professional conduct to the scrutiny of NARI’s Certification Board. Each certification candidate must provide an outline and receive an acceptable review detailing their hands on experience, industry training, involvement in continuing education, technical skills, practices in business management, as well as association and community service.
  • Committed to intensive study on a broad range of critical industry issues. Most certification candidates participate in a formal study group and spend eight to twelve weeks studying in preparation for the one day written certification exam.
  • Successfully completed a comprehensive written examination covering critical subject areas such as sound business management practices, knowledge of building codes and construction law, plans and specifications, proper and safe use of tools and equipment, safety, standards of practice, math, and several special skill areas.

Once awarded their certification, NARI certified remodeling professionals must meet annual recertification requirements involving continuing education and participation in industry related programs.

Who Are NARI Certified Remodeling Professionals?

NARI’s certification program recognizes the skills and achievements of three distinct groups of remodeling professionals of particular interest to homeowners: Certified Remodelers (CRs), Certified Remodeler Specialists (CRSs), and Certified Lead Carpenters (CLCs).

  • Certified Remodelers are professional remodelers who provide a full range of remodeling services. To become a Certified Remodeler, candidates must possess skill and knowledge in a broad range of business management and technical skill areas.
  • Certified Remodeler Specialists are professional remodelers who focus on a specific type of work and serve the needs of homeowners interested in that particular area of technical excellence, such as concrete and masonry work, electrical work, insulation, mechanical systems, plumbing systems, roofing, and siding.
  • NARI Certified Lead Carpenters are the hands-on field personnel who oversee every aspect of the project – customer satisfaction, personnel management, administration, etc. while working on the project.

The screening and certification process is essentially the same for all of NARI’s certification designations. And all NARI certified remodeling professionals have pledged to abide by NARI’s strict Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. Only the most dedicated professional remodelers can become certified by NARI.

It’s no wonder homeowners feel more comfortable relying on remodelers who have earned NARI certification.

Homeowners who hire a NARI Certified Remodeler, NARI Certified Remodeler Specialist, or NARI Certified Lead Carpenter have the assurance that they have chosen a professional remodeler with specific experience, dedication to training, and a commitment to ethical conduct through participation in the NARI certification program.

The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) is the only national association dedicated solely to the remodeling industry.

NARI’s focus is on professional conduct, continuing education and training, and fair and ethical treatment within the industry. NARI certification of professional remodeling contractors serves as the Association’s recognition of remodeling professionals who have met stringent criteria for experience and pledged a commitment to high standards of practice and NARI’s Code of Ethics. Among the factors to consider when selecting a remodeler, in addition to NARI certification, are your assessment and satisfaction with the remodeler’s workmanship, reputation and integrity, durability of materials used, and equipment. Before hiring any remodeler, visit and inspect similar projects that he or she has completed, and establish that you will be able to communicate well with each other to ensure your complete satisfaction with the final product.
