Carey Brothers Remodeling Wins Three “Contractor of the Year” Awards

National Association of the Remodeling Industry Honors Top Remodelers 1Carey Brothers Remodeling has once again been honored as one of the nation’s top remodeling companies by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI).

“Every year, NARI presents ‘Contractor of the Year’ Awards to members who have demonstrated outstanding work through their remodeling projects,” states Tracy Wright, NARI’s Senior Director of Membership and Chapter Services, “and this year’s submissions were exceptional.”

Winners were selected from 435 entries – representing over $128 million in remodeling projects nationwide – based on a combination of problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation and degree of difficulty.

Three outstanding Carey Brothers Remodeling projects were regional category winners in the 2021 Annual “Contractor of the Year” (CotY) Awards Competition

Residential Addition – $100,000 to $250,000 / Brentwood, CA – June 2020

The owners wanted to add a second master suite located away from their existing bedrooms. They also wanted more privacy and an aging-in-place design so as they age, they can remain in their home indefinitely. Their plan is to utilize the existing master bedroom to accommodate a future in-home care giver. The 444-square-foot addition made room for a spacious bedroom, bathroom with twin lavatories, private toilet room, a roomy accessible shower, and a large walk-in closet. The new master bedroom has private access to the rear yard and lots of windows for natural light and ventilation.

Residential Kitchen – $100,000 to $150,000 / Walnut Creek, CA – Feb. 2020

The owners recently purchased a two-story home and wanted to modernize the kitchen and living room with an open-concept design. The challenge involved removing a load-bearing wall between the living room and the kitchen. It was a major structural undertaking but made way for the perfect kitchen island. The new kitchen includes painted shaker-style cabinets (with all the bells and whistles), elegant quartz countertops, a full tile backsplash, farmhouse sink, new LED lighting, and gold cabinet pulls and plumbing fixtures. Everything was repainted throughout including the dark living room ceiling and bookcases.

Residential Bathroom – $25,000 to $50,000 / Brentwood, CA – July 2020

The owner needed an accessible bathroom for her double amputee father. To achieve this, the toilet was relocated to allow for a wider, curbless shower. New ADA plumbing fixtures and fittings were installed for comfort, safety and efficiency. A new custom vanity allows for wheelchair access, yet still provides space for towel storage. Cultured stone with eased edges creates a clean, uncluttered look at the shower walls and the vanity countertop. LED lighting installed at the ceiling and vanity improve safety. Finishing touches include a pivoting mirror at the vanity for all bath users and bath accessories in a clean contemporary design.
