NARI Announces Regional Winners of the 2014 CotY Awards

Des Plaines, Ill., Feb. 4, 2014—The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) named 126 Regional CotY (Contractor of the Year)TM Winners from the 2014 competition, with 34 team members. Regional CotY Winners will now advance as finalists at the national level.

Contractors from seven regions around the country vie for CotY Awards on an annual basis. National winners will be announced and honored at NARI’s Evening of ExcellenceSM reception on Friday, March 28, 2014 at the New Orleans Marriott in New Orleans. City, Mo. National winners will be announced via Webcast the evening of March 28.

All projects in the CotY awards program are an improvement or an addition to an existing structure, with the exception of one category, “Residential Exterior Specialty.”  Otherwise, new construction projects were not eligible. 

The CotY Awards program also recognizes projects with universal design and green elements through the Universal Design Project Recognition Program and Green Project Recognition Program. 

Competing projects were completed between July 1, 2012, and November 30, 2013, and were not submitted in previous NARI National contests. An impartial panel of judges, experts within the remodeling industry and associated fields, selected winners based on each entrant’s binders, which include “before and after” photography and project descriptions. Judging focused on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation and degree of difficulty.

To be considered for a CotY Award, a company must be a NARI member in good standing. The entries of this year’s competition totaled more than $72 million worth of remodeling projects. NARI members represent an elite group of the approximately 800,000 companies and individuals in the U.S. identifying themselves as remodelers.

The list of 2014 Regional CotY Award Winners is available on NARI’s Website. 

Homeowners are estimated to spend a total of $150 billion on home improvements in the U.S. through 2014, according to the Joint Center for Housing Studies. 

NARI is a professional association whose members voluntarily subscribe to a strict code of ethics. According to results from the 2013 Member Profile Study, NARI members outpace the industry norm in sales, production and employees, when compared to professionals represented in the Home Improvement Research Institute’s (HIRI) 2013 Remodeling Professional Study.
