Central Jersey NARI

History

NARI is the national trade association committed to service to the professional remodeling industry. It is an association with a proud past and a promising future.

As the voice of the remodeling industry, NARI represents professional remodeling contractors, specialty contractors, manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors, lending institutions, utilities, design firms, and publishers of information dedicated to remodeling.

The association as we know it today is the result of the merger of two industry groups, responding to two United States Presidents of different political parties in two different eras.

                                                     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NARI's roots go back to 1935 when President Roosevelt's National Recovery Act established the beginnings of NERSICA (The North East Roofing, Siding and Insulation Contractors Association).

In 1956 President Eisenhower established Operation Home Improvement, a nationwide effort emphasizing the rehabilitation of existing housing rather than new construction. The National Home Improvement Council (N.H.I.C) emerged from this effort.

By the mid-1960s, NERSICA no longer reflected the membership of the growing industry and its name was changed to the National Remodelers Association (NRA).

In 1983, the National Remodelers Association and the National Home Improvement Council joined to establish the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). Today, NARI has 58 chapters nationwide and has enjoyed a sizeable growth period during the past decade. In 2000, NARI moved its national headquarters from Alexandria, Virginia, to Des Plaines, Illinois, and as the Voice of the Remodeling IndustryTM, continues to prosper.

NARI’s Core Purpose is to advance and promote the remodeling industry’s professionalism, product and vital public purpose.
