Peter GrantMarch is National Designation Month, which gives NAHB a chance to shine a spotlight on some outstanding building industry professionals who were named Designees of the Year for 2017 and honored in January during the 2018 International Builders’ Show.

This week we say hello to Peter Grant, CGR, CAPS, president of Grant Homes Remodel & Restoration in Tulsa, Okla., who was named NAHB Remodeler Designee of the Year.

“Receiving my Certified Graduate Remodeler (CGR) designation gave me the ability to distinguish myself from my competitors,” Grant said. “In an industry rife with fraud, identifying myself as a NAHB Certified Graduate Remodeler gives my customers confidence that they have made the right decision choosing my company for their remodeling needs.”

The president of the HBA of Greater Tulsa, Grant is a lifelong Tulsan. His company was founded in 1989 and has always specialized in the renovation of homes in Tulsa’s historic districts. Recognized for his historic preservation expertise and achievements, Grant serves as a mayoral appointee to the Tulsa Preservation Commission.

As a former president of his HBA’s remodelers council, Grant raised the professional standards of the council by promoting educational programming and encouraging members to exchange industry trends and information. In his current role as HBA president, he promotes the value of professional education and champions its Ambassador Program, which was developed to cultivate member retention.

“I am absolutely convinced my CGR designation has improved my business,” said Grant. “Not only do customers prefer to hire credentialed remodeling professionals, the CGR curriculum has increased my knowledge base, making me both a better builder and businessman.”

Grant has earned the Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) designation and is a NAHB instructor. He is also a member of the NAHB Remodelers Board of Trustees.

“I am a firm believer in education,” said Grant. “We can learn through trial and error, but it is far easier and more profitable to do something right the first time than to suffer the embarrassment and cost of learning the hard way. Invest in your business. Invest in yourself.”
