According to David Barefoot, president and owner of Barefoot and Company, Inc., NARI membership was a necessary endeavor. “Our clients include builders, contractors and remodelers and before they make the decision to invest their dollars into a home improvement project they need to be assured that they are dealing with professionals. NARI membership gives our customers that confidence and our company a competitive advantage.”

Adds Barefoot and Company, Inc’s Marketing Director, Laura Barefoot, “Providing value and exercising integrity allows for increased earning potential and we have always branded ourselves as a company that delivers quality products, people and processes. NARI Membership reaffirms that assertion.”
