When you’re looking for a home remodeling company, there are plenty to choose from.  We think that’s great.  In fact, one thing we never do is put down other contractors.  The fact is that there are many fine companies out there that are doing right by their customer, but of course we’d be lying if we said that there’s nothing special about the way we do things at Criner Remodeling.  The difference becomes obvious when you consider the many certifications and awards we have been recognized with during our many years in business.  Just to give you an idea of what we’re talking about, here’s a look at some of them.

  • Criner has been recognized as one of the top 200 full-service remodelers in the country for two years in a row by Remodeling Magazine, the top publication in the field.
  • We’ve also been chosen as one of the top 500 remodeling companies in the country by another fine publication, Qualified Remodeler Magazine.  We were one of over 50,000 firms considered for this award.
  • Criner is one of a handful of firms that has been chosen to receive the Guild Master award with highest distinction, an honor only given to firms that display the highest standards in terms of craftsmanship and customer service.  In order to receive this award, a company must have a recommendation rate of at least 90%.  We didn’t get a 90%, however – ours was a 100%.
  • Every year, Hampton Roads magazine surveys its readers to find out which remodeling firms are going above and beyond in pleasing their customers.  In 2011, we were honored by this fine publication, receiving gold level awards in both the bath and kitchen remodeling categories.
  • The Hampton Roads Daily Press recognizes our community’s outstanding local businesses.  In 2010, we were selected as the best kitchen remodeling firm in our area.
