encompassing purpose: to establish and maintain a firm commitment to developing and sustaining programs that expand and unite
the remodeling industry; to ensure the industry's growth and security; to encourage ethical conduct, sound business practices
and professionalism in the remodeling industry; and to present NARI as the recognized authority in the remodeling industry.
of NARI are full service contractors, design-build firms, manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, subcontractors, lenders
and other related professionals who work in the remodeling field. NARI is committed to educating both trade professionals
and remodeling-ready homeowners. NARI does this by reaching out to a diverse audience in a variety of formats including education,

For the last decade, NARI's Certification Program has been providing the remodeling
industry with a formalized standard of expertise, knowledge, and ethical conduct among professional remodelers. The NARI Certification
Program offers a measure of skill and expertise valued not only by other remodelers, but by consumers. Prized by those who
have achieved the designation, certification programs identify remodelers who have undergone a detailed review and testing
in areas of business management, ethical conduct, and technical skills.
To many professional remodelers, NARI Certification
offers one of their most valuable marketing tools - assurance that the consumer is choosing a professional with years of experience,
dedication to ongoing training, and a commitment to ethical conduct. NARI now has six distinct designations, "Certified Remodeler"
(CR), "Certified Remodeler Specialist" (CRS), "Certified Remodeler Associate" (CRA), "Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodeler"
(CKBR), "Certified Lead Carpenter" (CLC), and Certified Remodeling Carpenter (CRC). With the remodeling industry now surpassing
new home construction, being a member of NARI is more important than ever.
