The National Association of Home Builders recognizes local, active remodelers who stand out because of recent quality work, customer service, community involvement and dedication to furthering the industry.
FIXR carefully examines the top experts within the construction industry to find only the best. Those chosen come from all parts of the country, and are known within the industry for the awards they’ve won, the designs they’ve worked on, and the projects they’ve completed. They are also active in social media or leading industry publications, helping to influence the industry’s trends, and engaging with others to help shape the construction industry into what it is today.
This award was designed to acknowledge an individual’s hard work, successes, performance, dedication and outstanding potential as they serve as leaders in the home building industry from across the country.
Finalists are chosen for contributing to the strength of women within the industry through leadership and professional excellence as part of the 2019 NAHB Professional Women in Building Award program.
This award goes to the individual whose efforts successfully advance safety in the industry, and recognizes those in home building who have made successful efforts to advance jobsite safety.
Each year since 1986, the REMODELING Big50 inducts 50 remodeling companies that have set exceptionally high standards for professionalism and integrity through exemplary business practices, craftsmanship, and impact in their community or the industry at large. Big50 remodelers run successful, often growing, companies of various sizes that have taken the lead in raising industry standards.
Since the Big50 program began, REMODELING has selected about 1,600 firms for Big50 status, approximately less than 2% of all remodeling businesses in the country today.
REMODELING editors, columnists, industry leaders, and the companies themselves make the nominations each year. Following a lengthy evaluation and interview process, the editors select the 50 individuals who exemplify the best of the industry that year, and who have something to offer other remodelers in proven practices.
The 2019 Big50 winners are featured in the July-August issue of REMODELING, a national trade publication read by more than 150,000 professional remodeling contractors. Longer profiles of the winners are posted on the REMODELING website, remodelingmag.com.
REMODELING, published by Hanley Wood, is the leading publication in the home improvement industry. REMODELING has and continues to be the indispensable tool that remodelers cannot do without—delivering the business know-how, product and technical information that home improvement pros need to help make smart decisions that will shape their success.
