NARI Launches the Accredited Remodeling Company
The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI)
Des Plaines, Illinois - May 17, 2017— The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) launched an industry-changing Accreditation program. As the first of its kind, the NARI Accredited Remodeling Company (ARC) program was created to support both consumers and remodelers. Consumers desperately need a remodeling contractor they can trust to update their homes. NARI remodelers need a program that supports remodeling companies in the continuous improvement of their business following best practices and elevating the level of professionalism throughout the nation. In order to be considered for this recognition NARI accredited companies must demonstrate how they meet a set of higher industry standards determined by a third-party, the NARI Accreditation Board.
"NARI leads the remodeling industry by creating a program, the Accredited Remodeling Company (ARC), which supports NARI members in elevating their business standards. Our third-party accreditation provides an unbiased stamp of approval. This is critical in gaining consumer trust while helping NARI members improve, grow and prosper in their business,” said NARI CEO Fred Ulreich.
Remodeling companies that display this badge of honor of accreditation have demonstrated a proven track record. "Most consumers recognize the Better Business Bureau (BBB) seal and ranking, or the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. “The remodeling industry now has something,” said Ulreich, “that works to not only bolster member company success but also provide consumers with a trusted resource. The NARI ARC program does just that." They must have sound business and operations practices, a commitment to professional development along with employees with specialized or Top Tier credentials such as: Master Certified Remodeler (MCR), Certified Remodeler (CR), Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodeler (CKBR). By elevating remodeling company standards NARI supports creating better, not necessarily bigger, companies. The focus is quality you can trust. The Accreditation makes shopping for a contractor as easy as deciding to remodel your home. The ARC logo signifies a hallmark of excellence. The NARI Accreditation program is another way that NARI members demonstrate and execute our promise: Remodeling Done Right™.
NARI’s brings its core purpose: to advance and promote the remolding industry’s professionalism, products and vital public purpose to life with this new program. Visit nari.org/ARC to learn more about how to get accredited or to find a local contractor.
