Renovations shine in award-winning style

  • Print

The RenoMark Renovators Council of the Manitoba Home Builders' Association held its annual Renovation of the Year Awards Night on Nov. 2 at the Norwood Hotel.

A total of 27 entries were received in six categories. A panel of judges reviewed and evaluated all entries, scoring them on criteria devised specifically for this competition. The quality of work was amazing and all 27 projects were on display on signs posted in the banquet room. Competition was extremely close and only a point or two separated many entrants.

Each category was broken into subcategories by price point to enable the judges to fairly compare one project to another. The categories and descriptions of each were as follows:

Additions: Any project that increases the enclosed square footage of a home for use on a year round basis. Winning entrants were Rempel Builders and I.R.I.S Contractors.

Kitchens: Any kitchen project that changes layout and/or cabinetry in the interests of improving traffic flow and/or changing appearance of the overall kitchen. Winning entrants were Home and Renovation Masters and Harwood Design Builders.

Bathrooms: Any bathroom project that involves new fixtures, resurfacing walls and floors, and/or changing size or layout. The winning entrant was Rempel Builders.

Exteriors: Any project that changes the exterior appearance of the home. Winners were Home and Renovation Masters and I.R.I.S Contractors.

Outdoor Structures: Any project that changes or adds to an outdoor structure. This includes decks, pagodas, three season sunrooms, detached gazebos and patios. The winning entrant was Rempel Builders.

Whole House: Any project that changes at least 75 per cent of a home's interior square footage. Winners were Kelly Homes, Character Homes, I.R.I.S Contractors and Rempel Builders.

Congratulations and thanks go to all participants in this year's event.

A considerable amount of work goes into the preparation of each entry. All entries will be on display at the Ask A Renovator booth at the Kitchen Bath and Renovation Show Jan. 11-13 at the Winnipeg Convention Centre.

Numerous MHBA Renovator members will be there to answer your renovation questions.
