Why NARI?


familyplansHomeowners beginning a remodeling project are faced with a maze of decisions.  What should I know before starting a project on my home? Who should I call for bids? Who can I trust in my home to do quality work? 

At EM NARI, we provide homeowners in our region with the information they need throughout the remodeling process AND a resource for finding industry professionals that are committed to quality.  There are a number of websites that will refer you to local remodelers.  At EM NARI, you have the comfort of knowing that our members adhere to our Code of Ethics, maintain the require licenses and insurance coverage, and strive to achieve the highest levels of quality in the industry.

This commitment is shown in EM NARI's own PEAK program, which aims to provide the absolute best remodeling experience for homeowners in Eastern Massachusetts. PEAK represents the four key aspects of the remodeling industry — Professionalism, Excellence, Ability, and Knowledge — to ensure that homeowners can find the right professional partner to do their remodeling.
