We got to announce a huge honor in August — SCD had been named to Remodeling Magazine’s Big50 for 2018!
Here’s a little background on why, as Ron Burgundy might say, it’s kind of a big deal.
Each year since 1986, Remodeling inducts 50 remodeling companies that have raised the bar for professionalism and integrity through exemplary business practices, craftsmanship, and impact in their communities or the industry at large. Big50 remodelers run successful, often growing, companies of various sizes that have taken the lead in raising industry standards.
“To get a sense of how unique this status is, consider there are roughly 98,000 remodeling firms in America with paid staff,” says Craig Webb, Remodeling’s editor in chief. “Since 1986, we have selected only about 1,600 firms. That’s just 1.6% of all the remodeling businesses in the country today.”
We’re honored to be in this select group.
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.
This year’s Big50 includes full-service remodelers, home improvement firms, insurance restoration firms, and specialists in specific parts of the homes, such as basements, kitchens and bathrooms. Some have a history going back decades, while others are just a few years old.
“There’s no single strategy here and no lack of competitors for their services,” Remodeling’s introduction to the list declares. “What Big50 firms share is a culture that celebrates employees and customer service above all.”
That’s why we’re humbled, honored, and downright ecstatic at being named one of the Big50.
