It is not easy to stand out in remodeling. The industry is filled with family businesses and passionate artisans who wanted to work for themselves—people who care as much about the finished product as they do the final price. To stand above, you need more than passion and quality. You also need innovation, creativity, and resourcefulness—qualities that can be found in every one of the National Association of Remodeling Industry’s 2020 Contractor of the Year (CotY) National Award Winners.
Whether it’s turning a deck into a fitness room or spanning a treehouse over a 12- to 20-plus-foot grade change over rocky soil (with a 55-foot walking bridge to the main structure), these remodelers and their teams exemplify the best of the industry. This year for the first time in print, Pro Remodeler magazine is happy to celebrate them in these pages.
