CINCINNATI, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 11/07/12 -- The votes have been tallied and the results are in, out of the nation's top 500 remodeling companies, Handyman Connection was listed at #14 overall and ranked #1 in the publication's Handyman category. Inclusion on this list is an accomplishment in itself, but finishing with such high marks illustrates the level of expertise that has come to be Handyman Connection's calling card. Handyman Connection's President & CEO Jeff Wall commented on the news saying:

"We are honored to be recognized for the quality craftsmanship we've provided our customers this year and we look forward to furthering our reputation as the company to call to solve homeowners' small and medium size home improvement needs."

Qualified Remodeler was founded in 1975 and is the principal publication serving contractors who specialize in residential and light commercial remodeling. Qualified Remodeler has a monthly audience of nearly 81,000. This audience includes remodeling company owners, executives, architects and suppliers. It was the first publication to specifically serve the remodeling market and is sent to more residential remodelers than any other magazine in the remodeling genre. For 34 years, Qualified Remodeler has honored the top firms in the country based on the following criteria:

  • Installed remodeling dollar volume
  • Total years in business
  • Industry association membership
  • Industry certification
  • Industry awards
  • Community service

15 individual categories are also included in the list. The top performer in each specific category was determined based on dollar volume of work performed in a specific business category. In the category of "Best Handyman," Handyman Connection was ranked #1. As one of the most versatile of all the firms, Handyman Connection demonstrates their ability to succeed in a wide array of remodeling projects. Editor of Qualified Remodeler, Christina Koch, expands on the criteria for which the 500 companies were selected to be the cream of the crop:

"Top 500 firms tend to share several common attributes, including excellent business acumen, a commitment to customer service, insightful sales techniques and strong customer loyalty."

In other words, the honorees were selected based on the attributes that Handyman Connection strives to excel in every day. With a commitment to providing the best possible project management and support, Handyman Connection has carved out a place for itself as the best of the best when it comes to hiring a handyman. With their best days ahead of them, Handyman Connection is hoping to have a big year in 2013 and it looks like it may be bigger than ever. John Huff, publisher of Qualified Remodeler, says that according to a recent Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity (LIRA) report:

"These [500] remodeling firms have survived, even thrived during the house marketing collapse, and they are ready to capitalize on the double-digit growth in annual homeowner improvement spending forecast for the first quarter of 2013."

As 2012 comes to a close, Handyman Connection is gearing up for what could be one of the best years for the industry in recent memory. They will meet the challenge head-on as they look to bolster their already impressive reputation.
