2013 Chrysalis Awards for Remodeling Excellence announced

The Chrysalis Awards program, begun in 1994, recognizes the nation’s best remodeling and design work in sixteen general categories of residential and commercial remodeling. The Chrysalis Awards are open to all professional remodelers and design professionals in the United States.

May 22, 2013

This year 79 remodeling and design companies were honored as winners of the 2013 Chrysalis Awards for Remodeling Excellence. The winning projects were selected from over 300 entries judged on overall design, the creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure.

Pictures of the 2013 award-winning projects, and all winning projects since 1998, can be seen on the Chrysalis website www.chrysalisawards.com.

While many of this year’s winning companies have won multiple Chrysalis awards over the years, there are some that have won ten or more since Chrysalis became a national competition in 2000. So let us take this opportunity to congratulate them for their demonstration of excellence over that time.
