Certified Age In Place Specialist (CAPS)
GB General Contractors is a certified Age in Place specialist and contractor since 2005. The term “age in place” refers to the ability and facility of people to remain in their family home despite age advancement or physical limitations. Whether this need might occur accidentally or with age progression preventing ease of motion, at times a simple change in door width could ease movement about their home. There has also been an increase in remodeling the family homes of adult children who prepare to have their parents or elderly members of their family live with them.
The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) provides the educational tools, certification and continued education for builders and contractors seeking certification as an Age in Place specialist. The NAHB provides easy access to protocol changes and updating members of new guidelines in the housing industry.
Gil Boyles and his team recognize the present and continuous growth in this remodeling trend and have kept abreast with both the NAHB and the Senior Housing Council.
Certified Graduate Remodeler (CGR)
GB General Contractors is a Certified Graduate Remodeler (CGR) since 2003.

This is a testament of GB General Contractor’s dedication to their clients building needs and in turn, their client’s appreciation for work well done.

The certification will become mandatory as of April 2010 for all building contractors and remodelers, focusing on housing and child occupied facilities.
