MHI utilizes industry expertise and tested criteria to determine a builder/remodeler's qualifications for certification as a Certified Professional Builder/Remodeler. MHI does not make any warranty or representation, expressed or implied, to any party and has not inspected the construction of any home and, therefore, does not and cannot address the specific quality of a new home.

The home buyer is encouraged to discuss the program with their Certified Professional Builder and to contact MHI for more specific information about the program.
