The Earth Advantage Remodel Certification program provides a clear pathway for homeowners to upgrade their homes to high performance standards. Accredited EA Remodelers benefit from increased credibility and the ability to differentiate themselves in the market. Our unique scoring tool improves the opportunity to discuss green options with homeowners and sell additional services.
EA Remodel Certification begins with an evaluation of the home by an accredited EA Remodeler to determine the potential pathways to certification. The EA Remodeler works with their clients to plan a strategy to achieve certification. This enables remodelers to gain repeat business as they nurture their relationship with the homeowner.

Our accreditation training is a prerequisite to becoming an EA Remodeler. Trainings are entirely focused on the delivery of, and marketing tools provided by, the EA Remodel Certification Program and are regularly scheduled in a half-day format to allow for the busy schedules of contractors. Once accreditation is awarded, remodelers will be granted use of the EA Remodeler designation and associated logos, as well as a listing on the EA website as an accredited professional.
Prior knowledge of building science principles and sustainable construction practices will be required to pass a qualifying exam. The EA Remodeler Training is not intended to teach building science or sustainable residential construction principles, and a 75% score must be achieved to pass the exam and become an accredited EA Remodeler.
