    Remodeling Showcase Awards Honors Local Remodeling Firms and Projects  
    LANCASTER - The Building Industry Association of Lancaster County is proud to announce the winners of its 2018 Remodeling Showcase Awards, a prestigious program that bestows the highest honors in the local residential remodeling industry. The Awards were presented on March 22 at a special reception and dinner held at The Barn at Overlook in Lancaster.
    The Association's Remodelers Council honored 19 winning projects from 18 companies, representing a total of over $6 million in local remodeling work and an array of tastes and styles. The dazzling before and after photos and stories of all projects will be posted at www.biaremodelingshowcase.com 
    The Remodeling Showcase program recognizes excellence in design and construction of residential remodeling and rehabilitation projects by members of the BIA’s Remodelers Council. Entries are judged on workmanship/quality of construction, creativity, design, value & cost effectiveness, and sensitivity to design or intent, using a blind numeric scoring system. The six judges hailed from around the region and are building industry professionals.
    Each RSA project was entered and judged in one of 13 categories: Addition, Basement, Bathroom, Commercial, Energy Efficiency, Exterior, Garage, Interior, Interior/Exterior Specialty, Kitchen, Outdoor Living, Restoration, and Whole House Remodeling. Categories were further broken down into divisions according to price, allowing projects similar in scale to be judged together. No entry was given an Award just because it scored more points than any other project in its category or because it was the only entry in a particular category. Instead, each entry had to exceed a threshold of points to receive an Award.

    • Bareville Kitchens & Design: Whole House Remodel
    • Eby Exteriors, Inc.: Exterior
