39 top exterior firms in America's Top Remodelers

The top exterior firms in the country offer insight into market

November 22, 2011

Professional Remodeler’s list of America’s Top Remodelers features 39 exterior / replacement firms for 2011. These firms, like No. 1 ranked Champion Windows, are scalable and therefore tend to spread out to new markets and new territories as they grow.

Driving leads for new business is important in any economic climate, but it has been even more critical during 2010 and into 2011 as stimulus-related tax credits for windows expired.

Rob Levin, CEO of Dallas-based Statewide Remodeling responded to the expiration of the tax credits by reducing the company’s reliance on windows and diversified into the safety tub business as well as an insulation business marketed around energy efficiency. The shifting and diversifying has helped Statewide keep revenues stable, but the company’s average job size has fallen, putting pressure on net margins and earnings.

The story is similar for Alure Home Improvements, based in East Meadow, N.Y. In its application for the America’s Top Remodelers list, the company reports strength in its kitchen and bath, energy retrofit and handyman business even while it has been tougher to get clients to sign up for major, discretionary projects.

Northeast waterproofing giant Mid-Atlantic Waterproofing is seeing opportunity in taking share of market from competitors who are having difficulty managing through the down economy. The company also reports driving new leads for business at home shows and fairs within its region. Mid-Atlantic was also among a number of firms reporting continued success driving new leads through data capture on its Web site through a number of means — namely search engine marketing and social media.

If our respondents are correct, opportunity in the year ahead belongs to those who are nimble and willing to invest in new products and new ideas.
