Certified Professional Home Builder Program
2-10 Home Buyers Warranty
HomeAid Atlanta

The Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association and the NFL Players Association teamed up to complete repairs and lawn work for Gilgal, Inc., a Christ-centered residential program for homeless women with drug and/or alcohol addictions.

Led by builder captain Christine Fortenberry, the groups worked diligently to assist with much-needed repairs at the location. In preparation for an office space for volunteer nurses, the card day volunteers repaired a hole in an office floor, fixing subflooring as well as the hole, prepped the ceiling for new drywall (to be drywalled soon), and tiled a bathroom floor for the nurse's office. A great deal of rotten exterior fascia board was removed, replaced and flashing added, surface mold was removed from a bathroom ceiling and the entire bathroom repainted with mold resistant paint. The grounds were beautified in addition to the work noted above.

Thank you to our donors and volunteers for this project! Donors included: Fortenberry Construction Services, ProBuild, Pace Drywall, Atlanta Roofing Supply Company, Sherwin Williams, Interceramic Tile, White Rock Drywall, Cooper Homes, Calhoun Properties, Inc., Artistic Edge Tiling, Redmont Homes, About Sales, Inc., the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, the NFL Players Association, and the National Association of Home Builders.

Stock Up and SAVE on Homeowner Handbooks and Home Care Systems in November!

Homeowner Handbook is a valuable tool for builders to help reduce warranty calls and increase professionalism. It is a homeowner's reference tool that clearly defines homeowner maintenance responsibilities and builder responsibilities during the one-year warranty period. Used in conjunction with the HBA's limited warranty document, the Handbook serves as a builder's one-year warranty. Best of all, the Homeowner Handbook costs only $30 for members!
How the Handbook Can Benefit You

The Homeowner Handbook has earned a respectable reputation throughout the metro area among builders, real estate professionals and home buyers. Often, the HBA is called by prospective home buyers requesting names of builders who use the Homeowner Handbook or interested in purchasing their own copy as a resource.

Regain control of the warranty process:  Homeowner Handbook
is a valuable tool for creating satisfied customers and allows builders to control the warranty process. When used in partnership with the One-Year Limited Warranty contract, the Homeowner Handbook becomes a legally binding document that very clearly sets homeowner expectations and saves builders time by educating home buyers, resulting in less calls and complaints.

Great marketing tool:
In addition to a warranty tool, the handbook is a new home buyer's resource guide to home maintenance and care. By detailing useful and simple steps in preserving and protecting a home, it begins to establish the thought process that the responsibility of the house belongs to the new owner. Repair and warranty items are clearly stated so that the builder's responsibilities and simple home maintenance items are defined.

Increased professionalism:
The handbook is an established set of building performance standards and is a useful resource for builders in ensuring they deliver the highest quality product and services to their customers. Builders who use the Homeowner Handbook know that it is a way of doing business that improves communication with home buyers and helps you effectively manage their expectations.

Home Care System
: It's all in the presentation! Present your new home buyers with the Home Care System, a three-ring binder system designed to keep the busy new home buyer organized for years to come. Included in the system is a copy of the Homeowner Handbook, the limited warranty contract and tabbed dividers that assist in the organization of appliance warranties, home design and decoration information, builder contact and profile, and other relevant contracts.
