NDAB makes its best efforts to determine a builder's qualifications for certification as an NDPB. While the program recognizes the professionalism of a builder, NDAB does not make warranty or representations, express or implied, to home buyers or others. It has not inspected construction of any home and does not and cannot address the quality of a home.
