To earn the CGR designation, a remodelor must complete a series of industry specific education courses, provide letters of recommendation, proof of licensing and insurance and adhere to a strict Code of Ethics. CGR stands for professionalism, experience and a commitment to quality.
The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Remodelors Council created the CGR program to help the consumer determine which remodeling contractor you can count on to do a professional job. The Certified Graduate Remodelor (CGR) designation assures you that your remodelor:
- Has met NAHB prescribed standards of business practice
- Has a proven track record of successfully completing projects.
- Has completed relevant educational requirements.
- Pledges to uphold the CGR Code of Ethics.
In order to maintain the CGR designation, all CGRs must re-certify every three years after their initial certification. Re-certification requirements include attending remodeling or business related seminars, trade shows, and educational programs, as well as proving insurance verification. Obtaining other professional designations also cunts towards re-certification. Equally important are letters or recommendation from suppliers and financial institutions.
The CAPS designation is a reliable way to identify professionals to modify your home. CAPS professionals have the answers to your questions. They have been taught the strategies and techniques for designing and building aesthetically enriching, barrier-free living environments.
The CAPS designation is a reliable way to identify professionals to modify your home. CAPS professionals have the answers to your questions. They have been taught the strategies and techniques for designing and building aesthetically enriching, barrier-free living environments. The CAPS program goes beyond design to address the codes and standards, common remodeling expenditures and projects, product ideas, and resources need to provide comprehensive and practical aging-in-place solutions. CAPS graduates pledge to uphold a code of ethics and are required to maintain their designation by attending continuing education programs and participating in community service.
Keep in mind that when you hire a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist, you are buying a service rather than a product. Each CAPS professional draws from a different knowledge base and will approach your project in a different way and since we are a full line remodelor, HoBart Builders, Inc. is able to take your project from conception to completion.
