Consumers

NARI of Greater Chicagoland helps consumers create their own remodeling success stories.  Our mission is not only to provide homeowners with a list of reputable, ethical contractors, we also provide resources that will help homeowners as they prepare and carry out their remodeling projects.

NARI is the only independent national association dedicated solely to the remodeling industry. NARI's focus is on professional conduct, continuing education and training, and fair and ethical treatment within the industry.

NARI certification of professional remodeling contractors serves as the association's recognition of remodeling professionals who have met stringent criteria for experience and pledged a commitment to high standards of practice and NARI's Code of Ethics.

Among the factors to consider when selecting a remodeling contractor, in addition to NARI certification, is your assessment of and satisfaction with the remodeling contractor's workmanship, reputation and integrity, durability of materials used, and equipment. Before hiring any remodeling or home improvement contractor, visit and inspect similar projects that he or she has completed, and establish that you will be able to communicate well with each other to ensure your complete satisfaction with the final product.
