“These 15 remodeling professionals finished a demanding training program that is designed to uphold high professional standards among members of Milwaukee/NARI,” said Dan Riedel, Milwaukee/NARI president. “The certification program helps preserve the high values that consumers have come to expect when working with a Milwaukee/NARI member. Remodeling professionals must meet several prerequisites to achieve certification, and the process requires devotion and commitment to fostering the association’s reputation.”

The Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council was chartered in July, 1961 as a Chapter of the National Home Improvement Council. In May of 1982, the National Home Improvement Council merged with the National Remodelers Association to form NARI – the National Association of the Remodeling Industry. With over 740 members, the Milwaukee Chapter is the largest in the nation.

The Council’s goals of encouraging ethical conduct, sound business practices, and professionalism in the remodeling industry have led to the growth of the remodeling industry nationwide and made NARI a recognized authority in that industry.
