Silicon Valley NARI members are invited to enter the prestigious Meta Remodeling Awards to find recognition of their achievements. The Meta Awards got their name from the word “metamorphosis”, signifying the transformation process and beautiful results that can be accomplished through a remodeling project. Companies from one-person shops to the largest remodeling firms report that winning this award is a major factor in enhancing their image within the industry as well as with the buying public. Winning awards also helps with marketing your business and projects as “award-winning” and teambuilding among NARI members.
