Let’s talk about awards, certifications and recognition. The one thing that they have in common is the fact that the individual and/or the company they represent have gone over and above what is normally expected. These individuals and groups have spent time and effort to learn more, to train their staff and to produce results that are more than expected.
In a climate that sometimes encourages cutting corners, these professionals do just the opposite. They look for ways to establish higher quality workmanship for themselves and the businesses that they work in or lead. They demonstrate a high level of ethics and lead by example. They ensure that their customers are thrilled with the results of their work. Although it might appear that this is a more costly way to do business, it is the only way such professionals will do business.
It is my great fortune to be associated with many of these professionals and to again congratulate those who have been awarded Contractor of the Year by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), the Remodeler of the Year award by the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA) and the Chrysalis Awards for excellence in remodeling. Since 1993, The Chrysalis Awards have honored the finest remodeling projects in the nation that reflect the professional excellence of the residential and commercial remodeling industry.
