FOR OUR HOME BUYERS – YOUR BUILDER MEASURES FIRST; WHY SHOULDN’T YOU?

BIAW members are some of the best builders in the country. But the Washington State standards for becoming a registered contractor are minimal. Until now these standards have been one of the only ways to measure your builder or remodeler’s level of skill or building practices. BIAW has changed that. Our Certified Builders are professionals who meet more stringent standards than those set by the state. They have been vetted by one of the largest home building industry associations in the country. They have reached higher, worked harder, and want you to see that doing the right thing matters. Click here to see a list of the ever-growing individuals who have decided to measure up and become Certified Builders in Washington State.
