Jackson Design & Remodeling Earns Spots on Qualified Remodeler's Top 500 and Remodeling Magazine's Top 550 Lists

With Forecasts Showing Continued Strong Growth in the Remodeling Industry, San Diego Firm JDR Earns Spots on Qualified Remodeler's Top 500 and Remodeling Magazine's Top 550 Lists

(San Diego, Calif. - September 8, 2011) San Diego remodeling firm Jackson Design and Remodeling has once again earned spots on Qualified Remodeler Magazine's Top 500 and Remodeling Magazine's Top 550, which produce annual lists of the nation's top remodeling firms based on sales and revenue.

Recent reports have shown that remodeling is on the rise across the country as homeowners are staying in their homes longer and spending their dollars on remodeling projects like new kitchens, bathrooms, full scale additions and whole home remodels. A recent study by BuildFax cites remodeling at its highest level since 2004. Todd Jackson, CEO of Jackson Design & Remodeling has seen the impact of this remodeling boom on his San Diego business.

"The silver lining in the housing decline has been that people are staying in their homes longer and spending their money on remodeling - and it's not just small-scale projects," said Jackson. "One huge trend that is continuing is the building of mother-in-law suites and additions. Homeowners are in it for the long haul now, especially in San Diego where people tend to come and stay for the long term. They are investing their money into their existing homes to make them into their dream homes and this is a trend we expect to see continue well into 2012 and likely beyond."

>Qualified Remodeler publishes its annual list of the Top 500 remodeling firms in the country based on the following criteria: Annual sales volume for the previous year, total number of years in business, association membership, certified employees on staff, industry awards and community service. Each company submitted a letter or audited statement from their CPA to verify their total volume of sales. Jackson Design and Remodeling has been ranked on the Qualified Remodelers' prestigious Top 500 list every year since 2004. This year, Jackson Design and Remodeling was ranked at #158, up from its previous spot at #174, and also received special star recognition for awards, certifications and community service. The annual Top 500 list was published in the August 2011 issue of Qualified Remodeler.

Remodeling Magazine's "Remodeling 550" is a list of the nation's largest residential renovation companies. It comprises four categories: full service, specialty and replacement, insurance restoration companies and franchise operations. The rankings are based on CPA certified statements on annual sales volume. JDR ranked #43 on the list of 295 full service remodelers featured in the August 2011 issue of Remodeling Magazine.
