Member Testimonials

The quality and professionalism of our NARI members gives me great opportunities when developing our design build projects. Not only have we shared business referrals or worked on projects together, but we also have created great friendships. The monthly meetings give us all a chance to catch up, make new acquaintances and learn valuable information pertaining to the remodeling industry. My over 6-year affiliation with NARI has helped me grow in business and my personal life. I recommend this group to any remodeling professional who is ready to take their business to the next level.

“I have been a member for the past 3 years. As a member who is not directly involved in the remodeling business, I am still amazed at how much business I do with the other members. I have also been impressed with the attendance at our monthly meetings. We get together not just for business but because we enjoy being together. NARI, specifically Diablo chapter has been crucial for my business. “

I’ve been attending NARI meetings for 8 years and became a member 7 years ago. Since then, I’ve watched the organization grow and increase the quality of its membership. It’s the largest collective of home remodelers in the San Francisco Bay Area, and the contractors and designers span almost every specialty in the building industry. I value working professionally with people I know, like and trust. It’s a boon for my clients when I can refer one of these companies that I know will take care of them the way that I do—and that I require for the services that we offer. NARI members subscribe to a code of ethics, and network with others who are the same. You are in good hands if your contractor is a NARI member—they are a cut above.
