Birmingham, MI – 10/7/2005 – Mainstreet Restorations & Remodeling, Inc. has been selected by REMODELING magazine as a winner of the 2005 Big50 Award in the Business Saavy category. The Big50 awards were presented at a gala dinner at the Remodeling Leadership Conference in Washington, DC on May 20, 2005. Winning companies are featured in the May issue of REMODELING magazine.
Each year, REMODELING magazine inducts 50 companies who have set the standard for professionalism and integrity through smart marketing, exemplary business practices, unique design, and extraordinary 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 Steven Ramaekers, CR, President of Mainstreet Restorations. “The award recognizes excellence and leadership, and we are privileged to be named to this select group of remodelers.”
REMODELING editors, columnists, industry leaders, and the companies themselves make the nominations each year. Following a lengthy evaluation process — which includes interviewing people at the nominated companies, and often interviews with their competitors, suppliers, and subcontractors — REMODELING’S editors select the 50 remodelers who exemplify the very best of the industry that year, and who have something to offer other remodelers in proven practices. Winners are selected in these categories: business savvy, fine design, industry impact, market wise, movers & shakers, niches, sales & marketing, and teamwork.
