Benefits of NARI


Professional guidance –Your fellow SFBA NARI members are the best mentors around. Where else can you find folks who’ve experienced the highs and lows of the remodeling industry?

Education – From our Chapter’s monthly meetings to NARI National’s certification programs and teleseminars, NARI offers the most complete growth and development opportunities for remodeling professionals.

Competitive edge – The NARI logo ensures homeowners that they are working with ethical, honest and professional remodelers. Your agreement with the NARI Code of Ethics puts you head and shoulders above most other remodelers.

Marketing opportunities – Our Chapter’s annual REMMIES competition is the premier Bay Area remodeling project competition. In addition, the NARI National CotY awards can bring your projects into the national spotlight and a good chance for publication. Both events are great opportunities to show your prospective clients your award winning professional work. Our website links you directly with your own website, plus you have the opportunity to have your company come up in specific searches by alpha, city and category specialty when consumers look for a remodeling professional.
