Is your contractor certifiable?
Just kidding there, sort of! A well qualified home remodeling contractor may have several certifications that prove their willingness to work hard to provide the best quality workmanship and management on your remodel project.
Our Project Manager, DyLon McClary, has earned two certifications towards his goal of providing the best possible remodeling experience for our customers:
The National Association of Home Builders website explains the CAPS certification:
“The Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) designation program teaches the technical, business management, and customer service skills essential to competing in the fastest growing segment of the residential remodeling industry: home modifications for the aging-in-place.”
The National Association of Home Builders website explains the value of the CGR certification to the homeowner:
“The CGR designation indicates that a remodeler has completed the requirements of the CGR professional program, including educational credits, prescribed business standards and experience. If your remodeler has earned the CGR designation, you can be assured that he or she also understands the value of continuing education and is ready to do his or her best for you.”
“To maintain the CGR designation, all CGRs must complete a continuing education requirement every three years. Continuing education requirements include attending remodeling or business-related seminars, trade shows and educational programs. Obtaining other professional designations also counts towards meeting the continuing education requirement.”
