Allen Construction's Hamptons Style home renovation has won GuildQuality's National "Next Top Remodeler" contest.
Front of home after
GuildQuality held the contest in honor of National Home Improvement Month in May, with the intent to highlight exceptional remodeling projects from their member base. Over 50 Guildmembers participated in the contest by submitting "before" and "after" photos of their best remodeling projects. The 33-year-old company won the "Next Top Remodeler" distinction by earning the most votes on Facebook.
This whole house remodel transformed a ramshackle 1960's ranch style house into an elegant essence of a Robert Stern "Shingle Style" home found in the Hamptons. With its regal entry, palladium window, and sweeping ocean and mountain views, you subconsciously feel that the house is grander than it is. A new second story, added to capture the views, was perfectly placed and looks like it has always been there.
Every element of the home was discussed in detail by the project team – which included the owners, architect Peter Becker, interior designer Randy Franks, and Allen Construction – to get it just right. One example of this teamwork and attention to detail was bringing the owner's vision of having her kitchen island look like the grand piano she left behind in New Jersey (since there was no space in this new house for it). The pièce de résistance is the actual part of a piano leg that supports the back of the counter.
Earlier this month, the company was awarded GuildQuality's prestigious Guildmaster distinction. The Guildmaster Awards recognize exemplary customer service among homebuilders, remodelers, real estate developers, and home services contractors. In granting this distinction, GuildQuality considers two primary metrics for each candidate: the percentage of customers who would recommend and the percentage of customers who responded.
