To become a CGR, remodelers must meet a number of qualifications, including completion of a comprehensive educational curriculum. Developed by the NAHB University of Housing, courses focus on five core areas designed to emphasize business management skills as the key to a professional remodeling operation.
“As a remodeler, I knew that I needed to do everything I could to have as much education as possible and earn an important designation like CGR, so that my clients would have a high level of confidence in the work I do,” said 2003 honoree Abbie Sladick, owner of Abbie Joan Enterprises in Naples, FL,
There are currently 1,150 CGRs in 45 states.
