McBride Named to Qualified Remodeler’s Top 500 in the U.S.

Being recognized as the Top 500 of remodeling firms in the United States by Qualified Remodeler is a high honor for our team. The list, which is based on remodeling dollar volume, total years in business, certifications, accreditations and community service, represents the most successful remodeling firms across the country. McBride Remodeling came in at Number 414 on the list, an exciting accomplishment for our entire Northern Michigan team. 

McBride Remodeling Has Grown in its 40 Years of Operations

Being recognized as Qualified Remodeler’s list of the Top 500 remodeling firms in the country is validation that the McBride Method works and that our reputation for consistent quality and dependability have earned us this distinction. Here at McBride Remodeling, we believe our clients come first and that our commitment to excellence and service have built a strong reputation throughout Northern Michigan. 

McBride Remodeling began over 40 years ago with a mission to provide families in the Petoskey region with the home of their dreams and places where they can make memories. All the awards in the world won’t compare to one of our previous clients returning for another project or recommending McBride Remodeling to their friends and family. Knowing that we exceeded their expectations so that they will refer us to the people closest to them will always be our highest honor. We look forward to continuing the tradition of being the remodeling firm of choice for generations of families throughout the Northern Michigan region. 

Rest assured, that when you choose to work with our team, we promise to always provide exceptional customer service and the highest quality remodeling services throughout your project. 

Award Winning Service and Results

While the Top 500 list shows the volume and value of the projects we’ve been able to complete in 2022, it’s an honor to pair this with our other awards that highlight our work and quality. For instance, we’ve been named “Best Builder of the Northwest” for multiple years and have received the Guildmaster Award of Excellence. In addition, we have earned multiple certifications which represent our achievements in specific areas, such as being named a Certified Aging-in-Place specialist and Certified Green Professional.  

Driven by Our Core Values

While earnings and accolades are important and an honor, we’ll always remain focused on our core values as a key driving force for our work. We will always strive to Do The Right Thing and put our clients first, prioritizing integrity, honesty and kindness. Our mantra is to Go The Extra Mile, which means we never want to stop learning, and strive to be the best communicators, while remaining a strong, supportive team. We understand what matters most is that we are good people who treat others with respect and compassion, always finding ways that we can give back to our community. That’s why we chose our 40 Acts of Kindness as a giving way to commemorate our 40 year anniversary. 

Looking Toward the Future and More Growth

Although 2022 marks the eighth time McBride Remodeling has been named to the Top 500 list, this year is particularly rewarding because of the improvements we’ve made. We’ve worked hard to ensure more efficient material sourcing and availability of materials, resulting in no more waiting or backlogs for our clients. As market conditions have improved and material availability has increased, we’re excited to take on new projects and look forward to helping you achieve your dream home. 

The McBride Team

McBride Remodeling Celebrates 40 Years with an Anniversary Party

2022 has been an exciting year for the team here at McBride Remodeling. All year long we’ve celebrated McBride’s 40th anniversary. And on August 10, 2022 we were able to bring everyone together for a big celebration to mark the milestone. We’re very grateful to all of the members of our team and community. With that sentiment in mind, we’re thrilled to share photos from the day so everyone, from past clients to prospective ones can share in the celebration. 

A Perfect Day on the Bay

We’re thankful for the beautiful summer weather we enjoyed at our anniversary celebration. Set at the beautiful historic Perry Hotel, overlooking Little Traverse Bay on Michigan’s “Gold Coast,” it was the perfect location to gather together. Our team works so hard and dedicates themselves to every project that we do, so it was our pleasure to pamper them a bit. Inviting our loyal clients to share in the celebration made it that much sweeter. The day was spent reminiscing over delicious food, refreshing drinks and great company. We couldn’t have asked for a better day! 

The Culmination of McBride’s 40 Acts of Kindness  

Throughout the year, we’ve been celebrating McBride’s 40th anniversary with our  #40actsofkindness initiative. A part of the core values of McBride Remodeling is going the extra mile and giving back. So we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our anniversary than with an act of kindness for every year we’ve had the privilege to serve the Northern Michigan community. This included donations to Northern Michigan’s Habitat for Humanity, the Little Traverse Bay Humane Society and the 100 Men Campaign, a campaign that provides men a way to help end violence toward women and girls, organized through the Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan.

Celebrating Our History, Excited for the Future!

We want to say a big thank you to all of our loyal clients and dedicated group of professionals on the McBride team. It was announced at the celebration that founder Dave McBride, after 40 years as owner, will be transitioning into a well-deserved retirement and Jay Sackrider, former general manager is moving into the ownership role after years of dedicated service to the team. Both men spoke on their shared mission to always provide superior quality and professional craftsmanship to produce first-class results for our clients. We’re grateful that our reputation now speaks for itself and we appreciate every referral and family who continues to work with us for generations. 

At the culmination of the party, Dave McBride was presented with a gorgeous hand-painted watercolor of McBride Remodeling. For all of us on the McBride team, we understand how important home is and we dedicate our lives to providing the spaces where families can make memories and grow together. We look forward to continuing this tradition and can’t wait to see what the next 40 years holds for McBride Remodeling! 

Cheers to 40 years!

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.

COVID-19 Operational Update: Open For Business

We are pleased to share that, effective May 7, 2020, McBride Remodeling has been given the okay to resume working on construction projects. Our production team members have all been reactivated and we are busy rebuilding our construction schedules. In other words, we are open for business!

Of course, it’s far from a return to business as usual. COVID-19 has altered the way all businesses will be operating for the foreseeable future. McBride Remodeling is no exception. For the health and well-being of our team members, clients, and trade partners, we will be strictly adhering to the CDC guidelines for safety and social distancing in the office and out in the field. See our Safety Checklist below for more details.

Many thanks to our team members who continued to work from home throughout the stay-at-home order to keep projects moving through design and planning. Our production team members, who were furloughed, stayed busy working on projects around their homes. They are a talented group and we could not be prouder of them. Follow this link to see photos and learn more about their projects.  

Thanks also to our clients who reached out with messages of encouragement and support throughout this challenging period. Your continued faith and loyalty mean more to us than you know. For those of you with active construction projects, we look forward to moving those projects through the construction phase as quickly and safely as possible.

For anyone looking for assistance remodeling or opening their vacation home for the season, we encourage you to contact us to start a conversation. We have become adept at video conferencing, but our office is open for any who would like to visit “masked-face to masked-face” for an in-person consultation.

McBride Remodeling Safety Checklist

These are uncertain times for all of us but McBride Remodeling is committed to providing you excellent results—safely and efficiently. With 38 years of experience and a reputation for high-quality work, we have developed a streamlined, customer-centric approach.  In these uncertain times, we want to make sure safety is at the forefront of all we do for our clients. To that end, we have developed the following safety checklist to assist in rising to the challenges presented by COVID-19.

  • To ensure that both clients and team members are aware of the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services guidelines for COVID-19, we will provide copies, and ensure that all parties are adhering to them. This includes having and using Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) such as masks, gloves and hand-sanitizer; regularly washing our hands with soap and water and maintaining social distancing while workers are on the work site.
  • We will have daily communication as we work in your home. Any issues or concerns that may arise will be known in real time for swift resolution.
  • McBride Remodeling will not have any workers in your home if they are sick, exhibit signs of illness or have been exposed to anyone with COVID-19. Similarly, you as well will inform us when we are on the work site if anyone in the home is sick, exhibiting signs of illness or has been exposed to anyone with COVID-19.
  • Stopping the spread of COVID-19 is everyone’s responsibility. We pledge to do our part and expect our clients and trade partners to do the same.
  • The required use of PPE is an additional cost of doing business and the McBride team will use what is necessary to be safe and to get the job done.

Together we can meet the challenges we face with COVID-19.   With your help and commitment, we will maintain a safe work environment while delivering the excellent outcome we are known for in the industry. We are in this together and as a token of our appreciation, McBride Remodeling will absorb the cost of the additional PPE and related procedures we have implemented to keep all safe and healthy.

Thank you again for your continued support!
