EACH SPRING, LOCAL REMODELERSlook forward to seeing how their best work stacks up by competing in the annual ROMAAwards. Begun in 1982, the award program has grown to become one of the highest honors a remodeler can receive. Entries are judgedfor design, quality, value, and how well the project was able to meet the homeowners' requirements. A panel of professionals reviewed eachentrant to select the ROMA winners. In 2010, a total of 81 entries in 17 categories were judged."The ROMA Awards are the highest honor a local remodeler can receive," explains 2007 award banquet emcee and former BATCExecutive Vice President, Bob Hanson. "Judged by skilled industry professionals, ROMA winners can be proud that their work has beencompared with that of the area's top remodelers and found to be the best."ADDITIONSProjects that enlarge a house by adding anew, enclosed space such as a bedroom/bathwing, a family room, or an eating area.ADDITIONS - UNDER 300 SQ.
