Deciding to remodel a home is a big decision. Outside of buying a home, it may be the single biggest investment a homeowner makes. One needs to know that the remodeling contractor chosen is a full-time, dedicated remodeling professional. NARI’s certification programs offer this assurance through an extensive screening and testing process.
Only full-time professional remodeling professionals are eligible for NARI certification. Homeowners can be assured that any time one hires a NARI Certified Pro that the individual has made a strong commitment to his or her business. Because remodeling pros are not eligible for certification until they have been actively involved in the remodeling industry for at least five years, you know that the NARI Certified Pro has had a number of years to develop the experience and skills that can only be gained through extensive hands-on practice.
Once awarded their certification, NARI Certified Pros must meet annual re-certification requirements, involving continuing education credits and participation in industry-related programs.

Families who have members with special needs also benefit from a UDCP.
