Sunday, May 25, 2014 • 8:20pm

CHATHAM, NJ - Robert Gockeler, owner of KraftMaster Renovations, has been selected by Remodeling magazine to join the Remodeling Big50.

The Big50 awards were presented at a gala dinner at the Remodeling Leadership Conference held  in Washington, DC, on May 8. The 2014 Big50 winners are featured in the May issue of Remodeling, a national trade publication read by more than 130,000 professional remodeling contractors, with longer profiles of the winners posted on the Remodeling website, see the full story about KraftMaster.

Each year since 1986, the Remodeling Big50 inducts 50 owners of remodeling companies that have set exceptionally high standards for professionalism and integrity through exemplary business practices, craftsmanship, and impact in their community or the industry at large. Big50 remodelers run successful, often growing, companies of various sizes that have taken the lead in raising industry standards.

The Big50 selection process has become increasingly rigorous in recent years, and the result, Remodeling editors believe, is one of the strongest classes to date. "Uniting the 2014 inductees are high standards and a determination to rebound following the recession -- taking the opportunity to retool systems and processes-- ensuring that they are poised to meet their sales, production, and customer-service goals and continue to thrive," according to REMODELING.

"We are very honored to receive this distinction," says Bob Gockeler, President of KraftMaster Renovations. "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 award is only given to a small fraction of companies in the industry, less than 1/10th of 1%, so receiving it is a huge honor.

Remodeling, published by Hanley Wood, LLC, is the leading publication in the home improvement industry. Remodeling has and continues to be the 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 project success.

KraftMaster Renovations is known their innovative designs, craftsmanship and attention to detail many projects can be seen on their responsive website in the portfolio section online.
