Why Hire HBA Members?

When you are thinking about building or remodeling, your first stop for information should be the Home Builders Association of Greater Springfield. The HBA is comprised of top-of-the line industry experts who would love to talk to you about any project you have in mind. So what sets HBA members apart from other industry companies?

In order to become a member of the HBA, companies must submit an application for membership. Applicants must show they have a rating from the Better Business Burea of “B” or better and be sponsored by an existing HBA member. In addition, all applicants also must provide proof of worker’s compensation (if required by Missouri State law) and general liability insurance – one of the most important requirements for HBA membership. These insurance requirements protect you – the homeowner or home buyer – from liability for on-the-job accidents or other complications on the worksite.

Only companies that meet these rigid membership requirements and pass a review by the HBA Board of Directors are eligible for membership. The HBA cares about homeowners, home buyers and housing affordability. We serve to hold our members to the highest standard of professionalism. The community knows that they can depend on the HBA members as the true professionals in the industry!

In addition to being an HBA member and making sure your builder or remodeler has good grades from the BBB, you should always ask for multiple references. Do your research when it comes to the single biggest investment that most people will encounter in their lifetime.
