kitchen remodelingDepending on local regulations where you live, kitchen remodeling companies and contractors may be required to register with the local or state governments and/or obtain a special license or certification. When it comes time for you to hire a company to handle your kitchen remodel, it’s wise to hire one that is certified.

Choosing a company that is certified—such as Criner Remodeling, which is a Class-A licensed contractor by the state of Virginia and certified in lead safety, green building principles, and the Graduate Remodeler Program—ensures that the work done on your remodel is performed by highly skilled workers in a professional manner, and that the company is more reliable, knowledgeable, and ethical.

In some states, remodelers must pass licensing exams on a variety of subjects, including home improvement, business, and labor laws. Selecting a company with these types of licenses will help ensure your job is done correctly and meets your needs and budget requirements.

It’s also advisable to seek out a company with certification from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). A certification from this governing organization signifies that the company has dedicated professionals who are interested in improving their levels of expertise. Some of the certifications offered by NAHB include Certified Graduate Remodeler, Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist, Master Certified Green Professional, and Graduate Master Builder. You can also search the NAHB’s remodeler database for a qualified, ethical professional in your area.
