Charlotte, NC, April 20, 2018—The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) named 40 National CotY winners and 20 National Team Member Winners at their annual Spring Business Meeting. Haven Design and Construction are members of NARI San Antonio.

Contractors from seven regions nationwide vied for the highest industry award recognition on an annual basis. An impartial panel of judges, who are experts within the industry and associated fields, selected winners based on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, degree of difficulty and entry presentation.

Haven Design and Construction took away the National CotY Award for Residential Kitchen, $30,000-$60,000, in a competition that equates to over $123 million worth of remodeling projects. Their dedication and commitment to “Remodeling Done Right™” which is NARI’s promise and tagline, lives true through their exceptional work ethic from concept to completion. CotY award-winning companies enjoy recognition from industry leaders and peers.

At the national meeting, the National Association of the Remodeling Industry awarded the only 2018 Chapter Excellence Award to NARI San Antonio. The Chapter Excellence Award is presented to a chapter for exceptional work done which impacted the chapter’s area in a positive manner.

The quickly growing local NARI Chapter has tripled their membership in 3 years and participates in community improvement events with the Habitat for Humanity, neighborhood renovations such as Rehabarama through the Office of Historical Preservation, and others throughout the city of San Antonio.
