Paul and Mary Maki, Scott Fitzgerald, and Brian Walsh, owners of Porch Conversion , have been selected by REMODELING magazine to join the REMODELING Big50. The 2016 Big50 winners are featured in the May issue of REMODELING, a national trade publication read by more than 130,000 professional remodeling contractors, with longer profiles of the winners posted on the REMODELING website,http://www.remodelingmag.com
Each year since 1986, the REMODELING Big50 inducts 50 owners of remodeling companies that have set exceptionally high standards for professionalism and integrity through exemplary business practices, craftsmanship, and impact in their community or the industry at large. Big50 remodelers run successful, often growing, companies of various sizes that have taken the lead in raising industry standards.
"We are very honored to receive this distinction," says Maki, Owner of Porch Conversion . "The award recognizes excellence and leadership, and we are privileged to be named to this select group of remodelers."
The Big50 selection process has become increasingly rigorous in recent years, and the result, REMODELING editors believe, is one of the strongest classes to date. "Uniting the 2016 inductees are high standards and a determination to excel -- taking the opportunity to build efficiencies into their systems and processes-- ensuring that they are poised to meet their sales, production, and customer-service goals and continue to thrive," according to REMODELING.
"Earning this award was a real team effort and we'd like to thank everyone from the office staff to the crew," says Fitzgerald, Owner of Porch Conversion . "We wouldn't have gotten here without everyone's best effort."
REMODELING editors, columnists, industry leaders, and the companies themselves make the nominations each year. Following a lengthy evaluation and interview process, the editors select the 50 individuals who exemplify the best of the industry that year, and who have something to offer other remodelers in proven practices. The Big50 awards will be presented at a gala dinner at the Remodelers Summit and Awards Gala on Oct 25-27 in Kansas City, Mo.
