The History of NARI National  

NARI's roots go back to 1935 when President Roosevelt's National Recovery Act established the beginnings of NERSICA  (The North East Roofing, Siding and Insulation Contractors Association).

In 1956 President Eisenhower established Operation Home Improvement, a nationwide effort emphasizing the rehabilitation of existing housing rather than new construction. The National Home Improvement Council (N.H.I.C) emerged from this effort.

By the mid-1960s, NERSICA no longer reflected the membership of the growing industry and its name was changed to the National Remodelers Association (NRA).

In 1983, the National Remodelers Association and the National Home Improvement Council joined to establish the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). Today, NARI has 58 chapters nationwide and has enjoyed a sizable growth period during the past decade.

In 2000, NARI moved its national headquarters from Alexandria, Virginia, to Des Plaines, Illin.
