The Annual CotY Awards: We’re Giving It Our Best

As a member of NARI Greater Cleveland, Dover Home Remodelers has been invited to compete for the prestigious 2014 Contractor of the Year (CotY) awards. While we opted not to participate in 2013, our team pulled together to submit a host of projects from this past year that, collectively, does a nice job of showcasing the depth and breadth of our remodeling capabilities at Dover.

We submitted five projects that fell under designated residential remodeling categories, including two kitchen entries, and then one project entry each for basement, entire House, and exterior, which included a gazebo and hot tub. I’m posting some project photos here in the blog so you can take a look.

It is very time consuming, but preparing for an award or contest entry is always a good analytical exercise in evaluating your own body of work. It was a productive discovery process for our team—and one that I highly recommend, regardless of your industry or market.

The CotY Award winners will be announced at the end of this month and then showcased in the following outlets:

  • NARI Website – Winning projects will be featured in the Photo Gallery on the NARI website at
  • Houzz – Project photos will be showcased on NARI’s Houzz page
  • Remodel Ohio – The winning projects’ Before and After pictures will be featured in the Spring/Summer issue.
  • The NARI Home Improvement Show – First Place entries will be displayed on the Wall of Fame.

Our team at Dover is incredibly proud of the work we’ve done. We’ll keep you posted on results!

The Best Is Yet to Come,
Beth Orr
