As Florida’s housing market continues to experience growth in new construction, great strides in remodeling, and substantial rebuilds due to recent devastating hurricanes, homeowners seek builders and remodelers they can trust. That is why the Florida Certified Master Builder (FCMB) was created.
Premiering during the 2018 Southeast Building Conference in Kissimmee, Florida, FCMB has now officially launched its services.
Florida Certified Master Builders are elite Home Builders, Remodelers and Commercial Contractors who are dedicated to excellence in building and client satisfaction. The builders who request certification hold themselves to a higher standard than required by the State of Florida for licensure.
“Florida’s housing industry remains a key factor in the State’s economic success – which continues to grow,” states FCMB Board Chairman, Jerry Linder of JL Linder Group, Inc. “This means that builders and remodelers are busy. With such a high customer demand on uncompromising construction, this certification distinguishes us in the marketplace.”
The State of Florida proudly touts the extreme difficulty with which to obtain a contractor’s license. Once received, builders and remodelers must adhere to the stringent Florida Building Code and receive 14 hours of continuing education every two years in order to maintain their license. But, Linder believes Florida’s rigorous standard for all contractors is not enough to stand out amongst the crowd.
“We always try to leverage current tools and resources available to promote our business, such as Angie’s List or Houzz. But, Florida Certified Master Builder takes us to the next level; making us go above and beyond what is asked of the everyday builder or remodeler. Here’s the payoff: homeowners immediately trust us to do whatever it takes to do a job right and outstanding the first time. Who wouldn’t want to be a Florida Certified Master Builder?”
Florida Certified Master Builders must meet strict requirements and demonstrate a proven track record of building expertise, business stability, integrity and exceptional customer service. Their education, design and product research requirements keep them in tune with the latest building practices and design trends.
