Thomas Ashley Jr., CAPS, CGP, CGR, said winning the 2017 NAHB Remodeler of the Year award was a game changer for his career and his company, Expand Inc. in Denham Springs, La.

“The award has given me yet another way to differentiate myself from other professional builders,” Ashley said. “It not only bolstered my confidence, but it’s enhanced my credibility, helping me attract more business — especially when bidding against other companies with fewer credentials to highlight.”

It also helped that, as the Remodeler of the Year recipient, Ashley was the cover feature of an issue of Qualified Remodeler magazine and was highlighted on NAHB websites and social media.

Similarly, Barb Mueller, AKDB, CAPS, a remodeler from Houston, experienced an uptick in business — and confidence — after winning a 2016 Homes for Life award.

“Receiving the award was such a tremendous honor,” Mueller said. “It gave me added assurance in my work and even more determination to forge ahead.”

Like Ashley, Mueller appreciates the enhanced credibility that naturally comes from winning such an award, which she proudly lists on her Houzz profile to showcase to consumers and differentiate herself from the competition.

Recently, the Homes for Life awards were revamped to include seven categories: exterior, kitchen, bath, single space (non-kitchen/non-bath), whole house/multi-room, two story, and multi-generational. And for the first time, the Homes for Life awards are now open to non-CAPS designees. CAPS designees will be automatically entered into a new category, best overall CAPS design project.

Applications for both the Remodeler of the Year award and the Homes for Life awards are due Sept. 10. If you or someone you know would make an excellent candidate for either award, apply today.
