We are delighted to announce that Paul Morse, founder of Morse Constructions, has earned the Master Certified Remodeler (MCR) designation from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI).

The MCR designation was created to recognize remodeling contractors who have demonstrated superior remodeling knowledge, dedication to the industry, and community involvement.  To earn the MCR designation, remodelers must undergo comprehensive review and testing in areas of business management, ethical conduct, and technical skills. The NARI certification program assesses the knowledge and skills of the remodeler in more than 20 remodeling task areas including business methods and practices, building codes and construction law, planning and building site layout, and all trades skills required in home remodeling.

MCR candidates must have attained the NARI Certified Remodeler (CR) designation and maintained it for a minimum of 10 years. Candidates must have also achieved at least one additional NARI certification, and have served in a NARI chapter or community leadership position. All MCRs are bound to abide by the NARI Code of Ethics and the NARI Standards of Practice.

In addition to his long tenure as a Certified Remodeler, Paul is a NARI Certified Lead Carpenter, Green Certified Professional, and Universal Design Certified Remodeler. Want to know more about what these designations mean? Read our "Remodeling Credentials Decoded" blog post!
