Bartelt Wins Two Regional Contractor of the Year Awards

Feb. 5, 2013

Bartelt. The Remodeling Resource, a premier, family-owned remodeling firm specializing in residential and commercial design and construction, was named Regional Contractor of the Year (CotY) by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) for the Residential Bath over $60,000 and Residential Addition $100,000 – $250,000 categories.

"We are honored to be named the 2013 Regional Contractor of the Year in these categories," said Rick Bartelt, owner. "These awards are the result of the creativity and dedication of the entire team, including our designers, carpenters, production staff, trade partners, and customers."

Bartelt was selected as the winner of Region 3, an area that includes contractors from Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Contractors from seven regions around the country vie for CotY Awards on an annual basis, and all regional winners will now be eligible for the National CotY Awards. National winners will be honored at NARI's Evening of Excellence on Friday, April 12, 2013, at the Intercontinental Kansas City at the Plaza.

The winning Bartelt projects each had unique components. The master bathroom remodel transformed a generic bathroom into a dynamic, spa-like space, improving its layout and expanding its footprint. The bathroom features an oval soaking tub and shower with granite and porcelain- and marble-filled mosaic tiles, a custom, furniture-style vanity, and quality fixtures.

The sunroom addition offers the homeowners more space for entertaining family and friends. It is a warm, inviting room that features a bar area, fireplace, hydronic heating in the floor, wine storage, large windows to showcase the outside views, and a vaulted ceiling and cupola to add architectural interest.

Competing projects were completed between July 1, 2011, and November 30, 2012, and were not submitted in prior NARI National contests. An impartial panel of judges, who are experts within the industry and associated fields, selected winners based on each entrant's binders, which include "before and after" photography and project descriptions. Judging focused on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, degree of difficulty, and entry presentation.

To be considered for a CotY Award, a company must be a NARI member in good standing. NARI members represent an elite group of the approximately 800,000 companies and individuals in the U.S. identifying themselves as remodelers.

Founded in 1984, Bartelt. The Remodeling Resource has won local, regional, and national industry awards, including 2012 and 2013 Regional "Contractor of the Year" (CotY) awards presented by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). With in-house designers, production staff, and expert carpenters, Bartelt is a member of the Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council, Inc. and Metropolitan Builders Association.
