Why Your Kitchen and Bath deserve a Professional and Certified Remodeler

The kitchen and bathroom areas are two of the most special areas in any home. You prepare all your food and refreshments in your kitchen and this is usually a fun and exciting time for anyone who loves to cook. The bathroom on the other hand is a place of relaxation, which needs to be designed just right for the perfect satisfaction. It is precisely for these reasons that you must always get a certified remodeler whenever these two important rooms in your home require a makeover. Remodeling is not just about changing color or adding a few more cabinets. A lot more goes into it than this and a certified remodeler would know exactly what. Below are a few reasons why.
Any certified remodeler always does a start to finish job and this simply means that right from the beginning of the project, they will be involved in every single detail right through to the end. They provide all the recommendations they feel you need no matter what your preferences and tastes are because it is their mandate to do so. After this you can go ahead and make your informed choice.
One clear area that many amateur remodelers do not pay attention to is that of noise and noise reduction techniques. A certified remodeler helps you to look at alternative ways of positioning your freezer and refrigerator, which can be very noisy if wrongly placed. The hum they produce can emit an intolerable din if not taken care of. Kitchen counter tops need to be sturdy and not just there for aesthetics. A certified remodeler will make sure your counter tops are engineered just right.
A certified remodeler thinks of all the requirements and more importantly costs, upfront. They do not make up new agendas on the list as they go along making the client incur costs he or she was not prepared for. They carry out proper evaluations and come up with a single budget that caters for everything. Armed with years of experience and extensive training, a certified remodeler adds not just design to your kitchen and bath but also the value you can accrue from it.

Portland, OR, 6/30/13– Greater Portland ORA / NARI or is pleased to announce that C&K Custom Remodeling has recently achieved the prestigious Certified Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeler status.

 

A Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodeler (CKBR) designation proves the remodeling contractor’s superior knowledge, technical comprehension and skill in remodeling.

 

NARI’s CKBR program measures skill and expertise valued not only by other professional remodelers, but by consumers as well. Highly respected by those who have achieved the designation, the CKBR program identifies professional remodelers who have undergone comprehensive review and testing in areas of business management, ethical conduct, and technical skills.  In addition, they must also adhere to NARI’s strict Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. The NARI certification program assess the knowledge and skills of the remodeler in over 20 remodeling task areas including business methods and practices, building codes and construction law, Kitchen and Bath planning, and building site layout, and all trades skills required in remodeling your home.  Attaining this certification requires the candidate to have been working full time in the remodeling field for at least 5 years and passing a comprehensive assessment exam.  Preparation for this exam takes up to 16 weeks of intensive study and self-examination.  In addition Certified Remodelers are bound to abide by the NARI Code of Ethics and the NARI Standards of Practice.
