Certified Professional Builders

The Elite Few

Many builders have inquired, but having heard the strict criteria, don't apply; and many who apply don't meet the standards.

By using a Certified Professional, you can be assured that your contractor:

  1. Maintains a valid State of Tennessee Remodelers License and complies with all the rules and regulations as governed by the State of Tennessee Remodelers Licensing Board
  2. Is a member in Good Standing with the National Home Builders Association.
  3. Is a member in Good Standing with the Rutherford County Home Builders Association
  4. Is a member in good standing with the Better Business Bureau,
  5. Their principle business activity is home construction for a period of no less than two years.
  6. Maintains appropriate insurance coverage including builders risk, general liability, and workers' compensation.
  7. Has undergone a credit check with suppliers and financial institutions.
  8. Is recognized by their peers as having the highest ethical standards.
  9. Participates in ongoing educational requirements.
  10. Submits to binding arbitration with their new homes.

Quality, Integrity, and Peace of Mind

Choosing a Certified Professional Builder or Remodeler means that you and your home builder have a mutual investment in your buying satisfaction.

Home owners often fall in love with a floor plan, a community or amenities, and overlook the two most important parts of a home-the builder and the quality of the construction. Don't let emotions overwhelm good judgment when making the largest investment of your life.

Choosing a good builder or remodeler still takes old-fashioned homework and when you choose a Certified Professional, you can have the confidence that the Rutherford County Home Builders association has already screened them for you.

As a home buyer, you may not understand the entire process of building a new home or choosing a home builder. Buying a home is not like buying everyday items such as groceries or clothes, which are frequent purchases. Choose a professional builder who has met criteria that demonstrate knowledge of construction, professionalism as a builder, and commitment to you, the customer.
