Advance Design and Remodel is the recipient of three 2020 Contractor of the Year (CotY) Awards for their outstanding work on remodeling projects. The company received 1st place rankings in three categories, including Residential Exterior 50K – 100K, Residential Interior 100K to 250K and Residential Kitchen 100K – 150K.  The awards are part of an annual competition held by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), Greater Cleveland Chapter.

The CotY Awards are widely considered the premier competition of its kind throughout the remodeling industry.  This competition is a true test for quality workmanship and advance remodeling techniques, and provides the highest professional recognition from industry peers.

“We were thrilled to collaborate with our clients on these projects,” said Andy Ieropoli, Owner and General Manager of Advance Design and Remodel. “We put careful thought into the designs and worked hard to ensure the final results would shine. We’re honored to be recognized.”

All projects submitted for judging must be an improvement or an addition to an existing structure in order to be considered. An impartial panel of judges, who are considered experts within the industry and associated fields, select winners based on each entrant’s project description and “before and after” photography.

Judging is based on aesthetic appeal, use of materials, functionality of space, skill and craftsmanship. Awards are given to those who recognized their client’s needs and used the highest level of skill in design, planning and execution to deliver the finished remodeling project.

Winning projects for the 2020 CotY Awards will be featured in the Spring/Summer issue of RemodelOhio Magazine – NARI Greater Cleveland’s remodeling guide and membership directory, distributed throughout northeast via Cleveland Magazine
