Atlanta, GA, March 26, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- To obtain this certification, Atlanta Building Company agreed to meet a variety of criteria, including having at least three years of home building experience, offering an approved limited warranty and mandatory binding arbitration, maintaining appropriate insurance coverage, providing a total of 14 references from homeowners, trade contractors, suppliers and financial institutions and passing a code certification exam. They also agreed to complete 16 hours of continuing education each year to maintain this certification, which must be renewed annually. Of the 700 builders belonging to the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association (GAHBA), less than 200 have the CPHB™ designation.
“We are proud to receive this important certification,” said John Southwell. It recognizes our long-standing commitment to solid customer service and home building professionalism.”
The Georgia legislators passed a builder licensing law that went into effect July 2008, but the law “grandfathered” most of Georgia’s current builders. This law left homebuyers with the same list of builders as before. The first of its kind in the State of Georgia, this voluntary certification program was created to connect the home buying public with Certified Professional Home Builders of Georgia who are dedicated to maintaining the highest level of professionalism, customer service and homeowner satisfaction. The program, administered by The Housing Institute, Inc., was created to promote home building professionalism in the State of Georgia.
