The Remodeling Design Awards celebrates achievements by remodelers and design/build firms across the country. We organize the award entries into 9 categories, with 19 subcategories based on job type and price. Entries may win a Merit Award, Grand Award, or Project of the Year. There is no maximum or minimum number of awards that the judges can bestow.
Award recipients (see last year's winners) will be featured in the October issue of REMODELING as well as online, through videos, in our e-newsletters, in our project gallery, and via social media. A select number of winners also will be featured in lengthier articles throughout the year.
