Why should you care if your home remodelor is a member of NAHBR?  Well, first off, what is it?

Founded in 1982, NAHB Remodelers of the National Association of Home Builders represents and serves the interests of more than 14,000 remodeling industry members.

The Federation of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) exists to represent the home building industry by serving its members and affiliated state and local builders associations. The NAHB members, who are involved in all aspects of a diversified building industry, create jobs for millions of people and contribute significantly to the economic activity of their community, the nation and the world.

The NAHB strives to improve housing affordability, availability and choice. To achieve this mission, some of NAHB’s goals are:

  • Public appreciation for the importance of housing, housing affordability and those who provide housing.
  • Recognized premier resource for industry and consumer information, education, research, technical expertise and networking.
  • Improved business performance of its members.

The NAHB provides education to its members and we are proud to say that Rose Construction Inc’s own DyLon McClary is a graduate of the CGR training program. CGR stands for Certified Graduate Remodelor and means that you are doing business with an individual who is committed to continuing education and professional growth and will bring exceptional skill and knowledge to your project.

To become a CGR, a remodeler must have at least five years of experience in the industry, take a qualifying exam and successfully complete a pre-set curriculum of courses specific to the remodeling industry, including project and business management.  

In addition, CGRs and GMRs are required to carry workers’ compensation and liability insurance and maintain a valid business license, where required by their state or local jurisdiction. Upon earning the designation, they must sign a Code of Ethics specific to their designation. CGRs and GMRs also are required to complete 12 hours of continuing education related to building and remodeling every three years. 

To find a CGR for your remodeling or renovation project or home addition, go to the NAHB designations directory and search by state or ZIP code.
