Award-Winning Specialty Builders Remodeling Gains Prestigious Universal Design Certified Remodeler Designation


Richard Hoffman is Atlanta’s First Universal Design Certified Remodeler and Certified Aging in Place Specialist

Richard Hoffman of Specialty Builders Remodeling — a stable, reliable, and reputable source for home remodeling since 1985 — recently was awarded a Universal Design Certified Remodeler designation from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI).

Hoffman is Atlanta’s first Universal Design Certified Remodeler (UDCR) and Certified Aging in Place Specialist. He is also the only remodeler in the state of Georgia to have been awarded this designation.

As the adult population grows older, the housing industry is recognizing the importance of a “universal” approach to residential design that modifies standard building elements to improve a home’s accessibility, usability, and value.

Recently, NARI established the UDCR designation to promote the highest standards of universal design and remodeling through credentialing of remodeling professionals.

Once Richard Hoffman learned of the new UDCR designation, it was as if NARI had constructed the program with Specialty Builders Remodeling in mind.

“It’s logical that we were designated a UDCR, as we have been experts on aging in place design issues for the past two decades,” said Hoffman.

“Also, with an aging father living by himself at home, I know very well the value and necessity of universal design as it relates to seniors.”

Since the company’s founding in 1985, Specialty Builders Remodeling has been committed to a quality construction process and outstanding customer service.

They are state licensed and specialize in remodeling kitchens, bathrooms, new additions, attic conversions, basements, and whole home remodeling.
