“A lot of people have energy efficiency and green building programs, but we believe in third-party verification of every single one of our homes. Pearl has the foresight to complete the loop of individual home certification and provide documentation of the value that we add to our customers’ homes. We are proud to work with Pearl to help homeowners maximize their high-performing home’s value over the lifetime of their homeownership.”

Unlike other home certification systems, Pearl Certification translates your quality work into market value. 

We want you to get what it’s worth now – and your customers to get what it’s worth whenever they refinance or sell.

This long-term outlook is how we work toward an important mission: changing the U.S. housing market in order to build a more sustainable, energy-efficient future for our country – and a healthy, comfortable future for your customers.
