The North American Contractor Certification (NACC) announced U.S. Glass Inc. of West Sacramento, Calif., became the 16th company to acquire certification after going through NACC’s ANSI-accredited program.

U.S. Glass is a glazing contractor serving all of Northern California.

“This demanding process made us revisit the best practices that we have worked so hard to embed within our organization,” says Mark Dutrow, president of U.S. Glass. “With all the demands of running an organization, sometimes our policies and procedures become stale or outdated and the certification made us not only revisit our existing practices, but backfill with ones where none existed previously. I would encourage other firms to pursue the NACC certification to not only improve their organization internally, but to raise the bar as a whole for the contracting community.”

The NACC program, launched in 2015, consists of several requirements intended to give building owners, general contractors, design professionals and other stakeholders confidence that the glass and aluminum installation process will be performed to meet the needs of the project.
