Our favourite type of people when we talk about properties are the un-sung heroes that are Contractors. They come at all hours to save your bathroom when the plumbing breaks, make your gardens bloom and are there to tile, paint and decorate your house to make it a home that’s truly yours.
Every year we look forward to this exciting issue, where we get to praise our contractors and recognize those that go above and beyond for their clients.
Throughout the year we are constantly meeting all types of contractors, from solopreneurs to larger companies, offering all sorts of services and trades. If there’s something you want done in your house, there’s a guy to help you figure it out and get it done!
When it comes to your home, it’s so easy to get overwhelmed with the various odd jobs, and sometimes larger dreams, that you want to accomplish. Where do you even begin to start, right?! While doing it yourself can be a possibility in some cases, we are big believers in trusting an expert on jobs that require skill and technique. And that’s where contractors come into play.
Now in our 5th year of our Contractors Awards, we are excited to bring you our yearly “go to” list of trusted contractors for homeowners. As a property-based magazine, we naturally turn to our Realtors who are the ones that vote on the Contractor Awards. They work all year with many Contractors when preparing for a new listing or working with their clients and are a trusted resource for how you can find a quality Contractor. Not just for large projects but smaller ones as well.
We know, picking the right contractor can make the difference between a job being done right the first time or becoming an utter nightmare. For most homeowners, the hardest part of any home project isn’t the work itself; it’s finding a competent and reliable contractor to do the job. Our Contractor Awards acts as a handy list to refer to when you need a project done. Not just of larger mainstream companies but also smaller vendors and specialty contractors.
Our awards are also an opportunity for contractors big and small to talk about their trade and share their business with the island. As a small business we know how hard it is to get your name out there and in Bermuda reputation means a lot.
In the end we are proud of how popular our Contractor Awards have become and are happy to give winners some time in the limelight. We love offering a platform for companies to get their names out there, showcase their skills and talk more about their trade. Check out this year’s “go to” list!
Our surveys were conducted as anonymous online questionnaires as well as in person anonymous voting. Results were tallied by the IPN team based on the responses given. We hope to continue to grow and evolve our awards to make them bigger and better for next year!
