Ace Award Rules & Guidelines

ace_logoNARI is providing a contractor’s recognition program based on client feedback. Any client would be able to submit feedback on any NARI member. For the feedback to be accepted and tracked, work would have to have been performed by the contractor.

  • Reports would be submitted directly to NARI by mail or via our website.
  • The ratings would be based on an Alpha rating system from A to F.Clients will measure the following:
    • Reliability
    • Professionalism
    • Quality of Work
    • Timeliness/Punctuality
  • Price paid will not be a consideration
  • Work needs to be performed to submit a rating.
  • Ratings can be submitted by anyone who had work performed by the contractor/service provider.
  • Random verifications will be conducted to verify the veracity of the ratings.
    • If a rating is submitted and deemed to be fraudulent, they will be excluded.
    • If a NARI member submits a fraudulent rating in an effort to receive an award, their NARI membership will be terminated.
  • Ratings can be submitted on non-NARI members, however, no awards will be given to non-NARI members.
  • Awards will be based on receiving a minimum of 4 ratings and maintain at least a 3.50 average out of a possible 4.0.

    • A D 1 point
    • And an F would be zero points.
