Oklahoma is one of the few states that does not require homebuilders or general contractors be licensed or undergo any sort of continuing education in order to build homes. Heartland Homes has been a charter member in the Certified Home Builder Program that was developed by the Oklahoma State Homebuilders Association with the goal of raising the knowledge level of Oklahoma builders and establishing a strict Code of Ethics to ensure quality construction and safer homes for Oklahomans. All Heartland Homes are inspected periodically during construction by its staff of Certified Builders in addition to third party independent inspectors that are brought in at key points of the building process to ensure top quality construction.
