Frequently asked questions

How can CBUSA help my business?

CBUSA has been successful for over 15 years by bringing 500+ Independent Builders and 1,200+ Suppliers together to increase profits, grow businesses, and establish a network of some of the best industry experts from around the country.

Becoming a member will be one of the best business decisions you will ever make.

Do I have to participate in all programs as a member?

No, CBUSA is a la carte. We will continue to bring you the best programs out there to save you money, but it’s your decision as to which cost savings opportunities you’d like to use.

Will being a member take a lot of time?

NO! CBUSA is designed to save you time through more efficient purchasing.

Your chapter’s monthly membership meetings are planned well in advanced and designed to help develop costs savings programs specific to your market.

While there is some upfront time investment needed to evolve elements of your purchasing process, the near- and long-term savings your company can make is worth every second spent making the most of your CBUSA Membership.

What if I don't use the specific brand you partner with?

That’s okay!! Let CBUSA run a comparison for you to show you how much you can save by switching to one of our Brand Partners. 

Your local chapter CBUSA Representatives will work with you to make the brand switch if it makes sense.

Elite builders like yourself have been switching to CBUSA Partner Brands for over a decade and never looking back because they increase bottom line savings, receive premier access to National Manufacturing Brand Representatives and have happy customers with quality homes.

How does it benefit me to work together with other local builders who in some cases may be my competitors?

CBUSA aggregates the best builders in a market in order to drive down pricing, increase service levels, protect our building companies from increases, and much more.

CBUSA is a network of custom and independent builders who work together without sharing financials with one another in order to strengthen their bottom lines tremendously.

You’re competing anyway, you may as well compete with the best and increase your value to your homeowners.

The high tide raises all ships in the harbor!

Is there a fee?

Yes, we have a one-time registration fee and a monthly membership fee.

These fees enable our staff to manage Preferred Local Vendors and Brand Partners on your behalf. 

They also allow CBUSA to pursue new savings opportunities for our Member Network.
