As a CBUSA builder-member, you no longer need to waste time evaluating the numerous vendor options out there. Instead, members simply log in to the portal and browse through the pre-screened CBUSA vendors who have been vetted for quality, service and pricing. Members can further their selection process by asking CBUSA peers in their market what their experience has been like with the vendors being considered. This benefit alone, has become one of the primary reasons independent builders become CBUSA members. With vendor and sub-contractor service being a key component to the success of a project, builders can’t afford to make a poor vendor choice.
CBUSA’s commitment to maintaining the prideful independence of its members is second-to-none, and breathes new life into an economy saturated with large-scale, impersonal construction companies. CBUSA enables you to combine your spending power with other homebuilders around the country, to leverage increased buying power with better bulk-buying prices with the nation’s most superior suppliers. This establishes the critical mass and volume imperative to negotiate longer term price locks, thus delaying the impact of price increases. At a National Level, CBUSA National Contracts protect builders willing to commit their business from price increases for 1-3 year(s). This means improved margins and more accurate budgeting. Above all, this means more confidence where you need it most.
Gone are the days of settling for a contractor just to avoid the hassle of coordinating, organizing and comparing a number of bids. With CBUSA’s Vendor Rating Tool, you can streamline the vendor selection process by reviewing feedback from your peers on their experience with preferred vendors in the network. This kind of checks and balances system continues to be a critical part of the CBUSA vendor program—because CBUSA knows that quality vendors , will ensure the quality and success of CBUSA builders.
By using the CBUSA program, we now have what we consider two very good HVAC trades who are responsive, have good service organizations, have competitive prices and can handle production, commercial and custom jobs. This is a primary reason we are members of CBUSA. Louis Genuario, The Genuario Companies & 2013 President of The Virginia State HBA – Alexandria, VA
