NARI Announces Regional Winners of the 2011 CotY Awards

February 08, 2011

One hundred and forty regional “Contractor of the Year” (CotY) winners were recently selected by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). Judging for the regional projects took place at NARI’s national headquarters in Des Plaines, IL, in the first week of January 2011.
Contractors from seven regions around the country vie for CotY Awards on an annual basis, and all regional winners will be eligible for the National CotY Awards. National winners will be honored at NARI’s Evening of Excellence on April 2, 2011. Regional winners competed in a variety of categories that included residential kitchens and baths at various budget levels, as well as universal design projects, home additions and historic preservation or restoration.

All projects submitted for judging were 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.
A panel of judges 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, degree of difficulty and entry presentation. 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 $93 million worth of remodeling projects.
