National CotY Award Winners competed in 48 categories ranging from residential and commercial, to residential landscaping.

"All of the nominees' designs were exceptional and brought creativity and design best practices to a new level," said NARI CEO, David R. Pekel, MCR, UDCP, CAPS. "I'm sure it was difficult for NARI's judging panel to choose the best of the best." Two NARI member remodeling companies received multiple awards.

"We've been sharpened by time, trials, and triumphs," said Jim Sweeney, Founder of Mom's Design Build. "It gives us great joy to extend that commitment to the people and projects we serve, so the affirmation from these awards is deeply heartfelt by our whole team and sharpens us all the more." The Cleary Company of Columbus, Ohio won two national awards: Residential Historical Renovation/Restoration Under $250,000 and Commercial Interior. "In the last two years, we have had the honor of winning three NARI National Contractor of the Year Awards," said Aaron Enfinger, CR, General Manager of The Cleary Company.
