Since the Big50 program began, REMODELING has selected about 1,600 firms for Big50
status, approximately less than 2 percent of all remodeling businesses in the country today.
“We are honored to receive this distinction,” says Warren O’Shea, owner of O’Shea Builders
“The award recognizes excellence and leadership, and we are privileged to be named to this
select group of remodelers.”
REMODELING editors, columnists, industry leaders, and the companies themselves make the
nominations each year. Following a lengthy evaluation and interview process, the editors select
the 50 individuals who exemplify the best of the industry that year, and who have something to
offer other remodelers in proven practices.
This year’s Big50 includes full-service remodelers, home improvement firms, and specialists in
specific parts of the homes, such as kitchens and bathrooms. Some have a history going back
decades, while others are just a few years old. “There’s no single strategy here and no lack of
competitors for their services,” REMODELING’s introduction to the list declares. “What Big50
firms share is a culture that celebrates employees and customer service above all.”
The Big50 awards will be presented at a dinner at the Remodelers Summit and Awards Gala on
Wednesday, September 24, 2018, in Orlando, Fla. The 2019 Big50 winners are featured in the
July-August issue of REMODELING, a national trade publication read by more than 150,000
professional remodeling contractors. Longer profiles of the winners are posted on the
REMODELING website, remodelingmag.com.
REMODELING, published by Hanley Wood, is the leading publication in the home
improvement industry. REMODELING has and continues to be an indispensable tool that
remodelers cannot do without—delivering the business know-how, product and technical
information that home improvement pros need to help make smart decisions that will shape their success.
It has been more than 20 years since a Maine based remodeler has received this award.
Congratulations O’Shea Builders!
