Charlotte contractors win honors for kitchen, bath and other home projects

>A kitchen renovation by Urban Building Group was named “Best in Show” in this year's remodeling contest hosted by the Charlotte home builders.

Andrew Roby won seven awards – including six Golds – to take the most honors. Urban won five awards, in addition to the top honor; Kelly McArdle won four. Absolute Remodeling also won four.

The annual Excellence in Remodeling Awards are hosted by the Remodelors Council, an arm of the Home Builders Association of Charlotte.

Projects ranged from bathroom projects costing less than $25,000 to whole-house makeovers costing more than $400,000. Judges reviewed photos, as well as blueprints and descriptions of projects, with entrants' names removed. Judges didn't score projects they'd worked on.

Projects were judged on function and difficulty in addition to appearance. See more projects, the list of judges and winners on 8-9H.
