Local Builder/Remodeler Gets National Recognition

 Thorson Restoration & Construction, out of Bridgewater MA is proud to announce their two latest industry distinctions as a Top Remodeler Nationwide for 2011.  They were named one of this year’s Top 500 Full Service Remodelers Nationwide by Qualified Remodeler Magazine as well as one of the Top 550 Full Service Remodelers by Remodeling Magazine. The Top 500 and Top 550 lists are the subject of highly anticipated cover stories for both industry magazines.

All companies in the running were painstakingly certified and evaluated to ensure they meet all of the Top 500 and Top 550 requirements including the size and operation of the company. Big companies are a standout in the remodeling business because they’re comparatively few. More than half a million business entities in the U.S. engage in some kind of residential renovation work, ranging from home maintenance and repair projects to full-scale additions and whole house remodels. But economists say the industry itself is one of the most fragmented. Most home improvement and remodeling companies are sole proprietorships. Only about 10% operate with a payroll. The Top 500 and Top 550 distinctions help homeowners and industry insiders to know who is a leader in their field so they can begin to decipher the truly qualified professionals from the so-called professionals that lend little credibility to the industry as a whole and tend to give remodelers a bad name.

The elite group of companies achieving this prestigious honor will be recognized at the Qualified Remodeler Top 500 Awards Reception in Chicago on Wednesday October 12, 2011.
