What is a Registered Builder?

A Registered Builder is not simply a title that can be purchased and displayed on company vehicles and advertising. A Registered Builder is a professional designation granted to a builder who meets specific requirements. In order to become a Registered Builder, an applicant must:

  • Have experience in the home or commercial construction profession for a specified period of time
  • Have demonstrated financial and on-site responsibilities
  • Be a full-time professional who derives his or her principal income from construction and/or related real estate activities
  • Submit the names of previous customers as references
  • Have Registered Builder sponsors with personal knowledge of the applicants construction activity and business integrity
  • Must have acceptable credit history
  • Appear before a committee of Registered Builders for a personal interview
  • Must agree to take part in continuing education
  • Must agree to abide by the Code of Ethics of the Building Industry Association of Greater Louisville
  • Must agree to a conciliation process and/or binding arbitration in the event of an unresolved complaint from a customer

All of these factors combine to provide you with an assurance that you are dealing with a professional who is dedicated to providing you with a quality home.
