McBride Remodeling Named Guildmaster With Highest Distinction for 2022

We recently learned that the McBride Remodeling team has once again been recognized as a Guildmaster with Highest Distinction, and we couldn’t be more proud! This award means our Petoskey area clients have consistently reported positive remodeling experiences and exceptional quality home improvement projects. Read on to learn about GuildQuality, and what this achievement signifies. 

What is GuildQuality?

GuildQuality is a customer satisfaction surveying company that works exclusively with home builders, remodelers, and home service providers. Their surveys poll homeowners for feedback on multiple facets of the service they’ve received. Remodelers like McBride then use that information to ensure we’re doing a great job, know how to improve, and grow as a company.    

Earning a Guildmaster Award

Each year, GuildQuality recognizes members who’ve consistently demonstrated exceptional customer service. This is determined by two factors: how many customers would recommend the candidate to a friend, and how many responded to the survey.

The average customer recommendation rate in the residential construction industry is about 70%. To receive a Guildmaster Award, professionals must achieve a rate of 90% or higher, and have a minimum 50% response rate from their customers. 

Members who reach between a 90%-97% recommendation rate receive a Guildmaster with Distinction Award. The elite few who manage to reach a 98% rate or higher receive the Guildmaster with Highest Distinction Award. 

“The McBride Remodeling team is thrilled to once again be named a Guildmaster with Highest Distinction. Knowing our clients are consistently pleased with the services we provide is motivating and encouraging. We are so grateful for this honor, and pledge to continue striving for excellence in each project we undertake.” ~ Dave McBride

McBride Remodeling Named Top Remodeler

How can you be sure you’re hiring a top-quality remodeling team for your home improvement project? One way to know for certain is if they’ve been acknowledged by Qualified Remodeler — the country’s premier publication serving builders and remodeling specialists. This year, McBride Remodeling has once again made Qualified Remodeler’s Top 500 list, as well as earning a Top 100 Satisfaction Leader Award. But what does this mean, exactly?

Recognizing Trusted Remodelers

For the last forty-three years, Qualified Remodeler has been ranking the nation’s largest firms based on remodeling revenue. Companies on this list are the top-performing remodelers in the US.  

Top Satisfaction Leaders are selected based on data gathered by GuildQuality — a customer service surveyor used by remodeling professionals to interview their clients about their remodeling experiences. McBride Remodeling has consistently achieved high customer satisfaction ratings, with 100% of surveyed homeowners reporting they would recommend McBride Remodeling to a friend. 

What This Means for Homeowners

Such high ratings are a significant achievement, especially during this time of supply and labor shortages, delays, and increases in material costs. McBride Remodeling has overcome these challenges and kept clients happy by communicating weekly through our BuilderTrend software throughout construction, remaining transparent with timelines and budgets, and being clear about expectations from the very beginning.  

Our achievements with Qualified Remodeler are evidence that we are not only Northern Michigan’s go-to remodeling firm but that our past clients have had great experiences with a process that can be especially stressful. 

If you’re searching for an award-winning design-build firm notorious for quality craftsmanship that is on-time, on-budget, and has hundreds of satisfied customers, you’ve come to the right place.

McBride Earns Spot on Top 100 Satisfaction Leaders List

Qualified Remodeler in collaboration with Guild Quality recently announced its list of the Top 100 Customer Satisfaction Leaders for 2020. We are excited to share that McBride Remodeling earned a place on this prestigious list of elite remodelers across the United States and Canada.

To be eligible for this award, remodeling companies had to subscribe to Guild Quality’s customer satisfaction monitoring services during the 2019 calendar year and achieve a recommend rate of 92% or greater for 2019. According to Guild Quality, the recommend rate is the percentage of clients who, at the conclusion of their project, would recommend the company that performed the work to a friend. McBride’s recommend rate for 2019 was 100%.

According to Dave McBride, owner of McBride Remodeling, this recognition is gratifying on many levels. “First and foremost, we earned this recognition based on the feedback of our clients, and that’s incredibly rewarding. One of our core company values is excellence. Whatever we do, we strive to delight our customers and exceed their expectations. Receiving this national recognition for the quality of our service underscores that our focus on excellence is paying off.”

Earning accolades for customer service is even more meaningful given current events, shared McBride. “This year has really tested us. The circumstances were so challenging with the initial shut-down, which caused us to have to furlough some production team members. Once we got the green light to return to work in the field, our team stepped-up to get all of our projects back on track. I could not be more proud of our team and the resiliency they’ve shown during this time.”

McBride Remodeling is one of only three companies in the state of Michigan to earn this recognition. Please join us in congratulating the team on this accomplishment!
