NARI Greater Cleveland enhances its members' ability to grow their businesses through...
We are the Remodeling Industry Resource in northern Ohio for information and advocacy for consumers, the community and our chapter members.
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.
NARI Greater Cleveland (NARI) was originally founded in 1962 as the Cleveland Home Improvement Council (CHIC), the very first council in the country. Twenty-one years later, when the National Remodelers Association and the National Home Improvement Council joined to establish the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), CHIC became the NARI Greater Cleveland.
Today, NARI has over 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.
