Why Call Us First?

Yes, we want you to use our members. But for a very good reason.

First and foremost we expect high standards from our members who are required to sign a code of ethics and follow them.

Our Members receive access to:

  • Industry and consumer trends
  • New building technology
  • Innovative financing plans
  • Changes in state and local building codes and ordinances
  • Ongoing education that keeps them professional
  • Environmental regulations

We want to ensure they have the ability to keep up with the industry changes. A company that plans to line up jobs, take the money and disappear will not take the time to join a builders association.

Look For This Sticker!

We keep on record that our member contractors, electricians and plumbers have the required license to practice in Wisconsin. You should comfortable and sure of the professionals you hire. That is why we do the homework.
