All builders, remodeling contractors and trade partners that are involved in the home building industry should consider investing in membership. Nationally, about one-third of NAHB members are home builders and/or remodelers, while the remaining two-thirds work in closely related fields such as building product suppliers, mortgage financing, realtors, etc.  CRBA is unique because almost half of our members are residential builders and remodelers.
