When you select a Pearl Advantage Contractor, you can have confidence you’re working with a top-tier firm that will help you make the right improvements and do high-quality work. Pearl accepts a small number of elite companies from each city into its Advantage Network. Contractors are screened to ensure that they have professional training, positive consumer ratings, and quality control processes and software to address customer issues.
Pearl Advantage Contractors add value to your home, because their work is certified by Pearl Certification. When they finish the job in your home, you’ll receive a Pearl Certification report and documentation for the appraiser. Only Pearl Advantage Contractors can provide these documents.
If your home has many features that make it healthy, comfortable and energy efficient, it may qualify for the Pearl Silver, Gold or Platinum levels. Your contractor can give you advice about whether it might qualify for a level now, and about how you can make improvements that could get it to the next level.
When you sell or refinance your home, give these documents to your real estate agent, appraiser, and lender. They may help you recapture some or all of the value of the improvements you made
Energy efficient homes with Pearl Certification have been demonstrated to sell for 5% more than similar homes without energy efficient features or certification.
