Chris Stebnitz and Mike Jeffrey, of Stebnitz Builders, 1102 Ann St., Delavan, 728-8027, www.stebnitzbuilders.com, have earned the designation of certified graduate remodelor (CGR) from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Remodelors Council.
Stebnitz and Jeffrey are two of only 2,000 professional remodelers nationwide who have attained or are in the process of earning the CGR certification.
Stebnitz, a third-generation owner of Stebnitz Builders, and Jeffrey, a 13-year veteran of the company, felt the new designation helped the company to distinguish itself from a busy industry filled with many companies new to the craft of remodeling.
"Our systems were created to keep us the most responsive contractor in our area," Stebnitz said in a news release. "Our clients demand this level of attention and we know that this level of care is what makes great remodeling projects wonderful experiences. The courses we completed over the last few years gave us some great new ideas to incorporate in to our systems."
According to Jeffrey, his job as a production manager has become much more efficient due to the information gathered at the various courses. "In order to keep projects moving efficiently and keeping the client informed about what they should expect, it really takes organization, planning, communication and listening. The courses I've taken have given me new insight on how I can improve on what I was already doing."
CGR recognizes those remodelers who demonstrate exceptional business integrity, technical competence and a solid track record of customer satisfaction. To earn the CGR designation, a remodeler must complete a series of industry-specific education courses, provide letters of recommendation, proof of licensing and insurance and adhere to a strict code of ethics. CGR stands for professionalism, experience and a commitment to quality.
