Awards & Certifications

You’ll notice that we like to be the first. It’s not because we like to brag, but rather because we take the remodeling industry’s training and certification very seriously. It’s the reason why we were the first remodeler in the New River Valley to receive the National Association of Home Builders Remodeler of the Month award and the national Big 50 award from Remodeling Magazine. We were also the first Certified Graduate Remodeler in southwest Virginia. Blue Ridge Home Improvement has received the Safety Leadership Award for fifteen (15) consecutive Injury Free Years from Commonwealth Contractors (April 1, 2004 – March 31, 2019).
