How To Certify Your Home
SAFERhome protects consumers through its Certification of both Builders and the homes they build.
Three Basic Steps to a SAFERhome Certified Home
Step 1. Registration Form
Complete the registration form for your home or project and mail it together with your registration and inspection payment to the SAFERhome Standards Society. Alternatively, you can email your registration/inspection form to us and can pay online.
Registration and Inspection costs are $450 per single family home or $400 per multi-family home units or multi-unit residential buildings.
To safeguard yourself, add the following clause to your Builder’s/Developer’s or Real Estate Contract “Subject to proof of SAFERhome Standards Certification”.
With your registration we will provide you with a copy of the SAFERhome Standards Manual with the technical details for each criteria of the SAFERhome Standards. You can contact us here for the registration / inspection forms.
Step 2. Design & Build Your Home / Project
The SAFERhome Standards manual provides all the technical details for each criterion in order to meet the Standards. The Standards are grouped into three (3) categories – Structural & Design, Electrical & Telecom, and Plumbing.
Your registration also entitles you to technical and other support you may require to certify your home. We are here to support you during your build should you have any questions or concerns and encourage you to contact us.
Step 3. SAFERhome Certified Building Inspection & Certificate
Prior to the dry-walling stage of your home/project please contact us to make arrangements for a SAFERhome Certified Inspectors to perform your inspection. Cost of SAFERhome inspection is already included with your registration fee.
Once you have passed inspection your home or project will be registered with the SAFERhome Standards registry office.
You will receive a SAFERhome Standards Certificate and registration number(s) for each unit.
We encourage all Builders and Developers to take our SAFERhome Builders Certification Course to provide your clients with the assurance of having a qualified SAFERhome Certified Builder and to stand apart and identify as a certified age-in-place universal design building specialist.
