Q: What does it mean if a contractor is NKBA-certified?
What does it mean if a contractor is NKBA-certified? I know that NKBA stands for the National Kitchen & Bath Association, but what does a certification from them mean? Are there different certifications and levels? If so, what is the difference between the different NKBA certifications and levels? Are there any NKBA-certified contractors that could explain this certification to me?
Is this something my wife and I should look for when selecting contractors for our kitchen remodel? Thanks.
Being NKBA certified lets the consumer know that the certified party has a certain amount of professional experience in his or her field as well as a specific level of education in relation to thier experience. All NKBA certified professionals are thouroughly tested on thier level of knowledge and education in thier field. There are many types of certification and each has it's own level of professional and educational requirement to become certified in that area. As there are so many certification levels, I would recommend that you visit http://www.nkba.org. Here you will be able to see the different types of certification and the differences in education & experience for each so that you can make the choice that best suits your personal needs.
