NARI Milwaukee is pleased to announce that Andy Schafer has recently achieved the prestigious Master Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodeler status – he is 1 of just 7 in the state to have received this honor to date.

A Master Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodeler (MCKBR) designation proves the remodeling contractor’s superior knowledge, dedication to the industry, and community involvement.

NARI’s MCKBR program measures skill and expertise valued not only by other professional remodelers, but by consumers as well. Highly respected by those who have achieved the designation, the MCKBR program identifies professional remodelers who have undergone comprehensive review and testing in areas of business management, ethical conduct, and technical skills. The NARI certification program assesses the knowledge and skills of the remodeler in several remodeling task areas including business methods and practices, building codes and construction law, planning and building site layout, and all trades skills required in remodeling your kitchen and bath. Attaining this certification requires the candidate to have attained the Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodeler (CKBR) designation and maintained it current for a minimum of 10 years.  The candidate must also have achieved at least one additional NARI Certification, and have served in a NARI chapter or a community leadership position. In addition, Master Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodelers are bound to abide by the NARI Code of Ethics and the NARI Standards of Practice.

“I am honored to have received this certification and is a testament to my dedication to the remodeling industry.”
