The Chrysalis Awards for Remodeling Excellence began in 1994. The awards cover 28 categories of residential and commercial remodeling, and winners are selected for each of four geographical regions of the country. The regional winners are then judged to select a national winner for each category.
The competition is open to any professional remodeler or design professional. There is no requirement to be a member of any specific trade association. Entrants can use the Chrysalis entry form, or may submit in any other format as long as the answers to the primary Chrysalis questions are addressed somewhere in the entry package.
Chrysalis Website: Winners will have their own company page on the Chrysalis website, www.chrysalisawards.com, which will include photos and descriptions of their winning entries, as well as contact information for their company. The site is designed for consumers contemplating a remodeling project, and generates hundreds of thousands of dollars in sales leads each year. Winning remodelers remain on the website for a minimum of five years.
Professional Remodeler Magazine: Winners are listed in the pages of Professional Remodeler magazine, the publishing sponsor of the Chrysalis Awards.
The Chrysalis Award: The award itself is an attractive acrylic trophy that can be displayed in your company office. Duplicates may be purchased to present to clients or project team members.
