    Most important is to have words "I personally guarantee" this is your saving grace in a bankruptcy case. Good Luck.

    Look into ICPI certification. They discuss this subject in great detail. The certification also provides you with outstanding credibility.

    The funny part is that most homeowners don't know the difference. I love to tell them that I only hire "certified installers". I never get questioned on who certified them or what it means. If pressed I would have to admit that they are "Justin Certified", but they eat it up! lol :hammerhead:
