All this and more is at your fingertips when you join the Unilock Authorized Contractor Program. So what does it take? Read on to find out.
High-Quality Installation Methods and Techniques
To qualify for this exclusive program, a contractor requires a mastery of the field. On-site inspections of both past and current projects will be conducted to ascertain the quality of a design/build contractor’s workmanship. By demonstrating impeccable installation methods and techniques, a contractor ticks off the first box on the list of requirements. Not everyone makes the cut, and we make sure that homeowners and commercial clients are aware of this through our advertising and online literature. We promote our Unilock Authorized Contractors as leaders in their field, so contractors who join the program must demonstrate their ability to produce exceptional work. In addition to this, we reward exceptional efforts every year at our Annual Awards of Excellence, where we celebrate next-level design in a number of different categories, such as Best Driveway, Best Front Entrance, Best Backyard, Best Before and After, and Best Project under 1,000 square feet. There is also a prize for Best in Show. This year’s Best in Show award went to Ramos Masonry from Johnston, Rhode Island, for an impressive driveway and pool deck. The driveway featured multiple pavers, including Tribeca Cobble, Courtstone and Thornbury.

Peace of Mind Guarantee
Unilock Authorized Contractors are required to offer a minimum two-year guarantee on their workmanship. While we trust our contractors to fulfill this obligation, we are also invested in ensuring that homeowners who have connected with contractors through us receive the best experience possible.

This gives homeowners additional peace of mind, and, as a Unilock Authorized Contractor, you have something to offer your clients that other contractors can’t.
A Passion for Growth and a Thirst for Knowledge
Although years of experience in the field and hard-earned expertise are welcome traits for contractors joining the Unilock Authorized Contractor Program, they aren’t prerequisites.
