If you’re looking for an exterior remodeling company, choosing one who is a member of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) is always a good decision. Although you may think that experience and insurance (and licensing when applicable) is enough, a NARI remodeler is a better choice.
NARI Remodelers Are Held to Higher Standards
There are differences between a licensed contractor and a remodeler who takes the time to apply for membership and is approved as a member. Here are a few of the things a contractor must do and prove before their membership is approved. They must prove they:
- Are properly insured per local and state laws
- Follow NARI’s Code of Ethics
- Complete additional certifications in their area of expertise
- Have five years consecutive operation as a remodeling company
Most savvy homeowners get more than one estimate for a job. When they do, they often find that one is much less expensive than the other two. That difference in price isn’t always because of cheaper materials. Often, it’s because the remodeler is less experienced. They likely aren’t investing in ongoing training that a NARI member receives as part of their membership. They don’t warrant a higher price because they’re not as experienced.
Although any remodeler can use quality products, a NARI remodeler is more likely to use them in every job they do. If your quote doesn’t include a brand, product line and color, you may be disappointed in what you receive. Any good remodeler, whether it’s a roofer, siding company or window replacement company, should include details about your products. This protects you and helps ensure you love the look of your home once the job is complete. Many remodelers advertise the brands they use on their website but it’s still a good idea to make sure your quote or contract includes the brand you expect.
