- Graduate Master Remodeler (GMR)
The Graduate Master Remodeler (GMR) professional designation is held by a select group of building industry professionals: applicants must have at least 15 years of remodeling experience before they are even eligible to be considered for the designation.
This program is designed to be the master level of the current Certified Graduate Remodeler designation and requires completion of five additional courses, and having an active CGR for five years or active CR (Certified Remodeler) from NARI (National Association Remodeling Industry) for 10 years.
Home owners seek GMRs because they know that these are remodelers who know how to run a successful business, keep up with current design and style trends and listen well to their clients.
