Bartelt Named 2017 National Contractor of the Year

NARI National CotY Winner
Bartelt was named the 2017 National Contractor of the Year (CotY) by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) for the Entire House $500,001 – $750,000 category.

Wauwatosa Butler's Pantry“We are honored to be named the 2017 National Contractor of the Year in this category,” said Rick Bartelt, owner. “We would not have achieved such a high honor without the expertise and dedication of the entire team, including our designers, carpenters, production staff, trade partners and customers.”

Contractors from seven regions nationwide vie for the awards on an annual basis. An impartial panel of judges, who are experts within the industry and associated fields, selected winners based on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, degree of difficulty and entry presentation.

Earlier this year, NARI named 172 Regional CotY winners with 27 team members who advanced as finalists to the national level. NARI announced a National winner in each of the 37 categories at its Evening of Excellence reception, held in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Wauwatosa Kitchen RemodelAfter previous remodels, the winning project was dated, and the spaces lacked unity. The homeowners wanted to enhance the home’s original charm, creating a cohesive design throughout the various rooms, while highlighting their eclectic style and accommodating their modern lifestyle. The remodel features a new mudroom, kitchen expansion, family room, butler’s pantry, first floor bathroom, dining room, and master bathroom. Throughout the project, it was important to increase the natural light in the home and make the spaces more conducive to entertaining. Now, the home is a balanced mix of the homeowners’ eclectic taste and more traditional details.  Bartelt worked with interior designer Jeff Wasserman to complete the project.

Bartelt Wins Two Gold Wisconsin Remodelers Awards

On Friday, January 13, 2017, Bartelt took home two gold Wisconsin Remodelers Awards (WRAs). Our team was recognized in the Basement Over $100,000 and Entire House $500,001 – $750,000 categories.

“We are very proud of this achievement,” said Rick Bartelt, owner. “These awards are the result of the creativity and expertise of our entire team, including our designers, carpenters, production staff, trade partners, and clients.  We wouldn’t be where we are today without them.”

The Wisconsin Remodelers Awards is an annual event hosted by the Milwaukee NARI Home Improvement Council, Inc.  It is an opportunity to honor the outstanding work its members have accomplished throughout the year.

Gold | Basement Over $100,000The winning Bartelt projects each had unique components.  The Basement Over $100,000 project was originally a blank canvas.  The homeowners wanted another living space that both the adults and teenagers could enjoy. It needed to be a fun area to watch movies, entertain, and relax. The remodeled space offers a comfortable and contemporary spot for the family. It features a bar with pepper gray cabinetry, a stacked stone backsplash, and textured granite. Neighboring the bar, a modern fireplace with a floating hearth serves as the focal point of the lower level. The lower level also includes a theater room with a “starry” ceiling – the perfect spot for the kids!

Gold | Entire House $500,001 - $750,000After previous remodels, the Entire House $500,001 – $750,000 home was dated, and the spaces lacked unity. The homeowners wanted to enhance the home’s original charm, creating a cohesive design throughout the various rooms, while highlighting their eclectic style and accommodating their modern lifestyle. The remodel features a new mudroom, kitchen expansion, family room, butler’s pantry, first floor bathroom, dining room, and master bathroom. Throughout the project, it was important to increase the natural light in the home and make the spaces more conducive to entertaining. Now, the home is a balanced mix of the homeowners’ eclectic taste and more traditional details.

“We are honored to receive an Achievement Award,” said Rick Bartelt, owner. “This award is the result of the creativity, dedication, and expertise of our team, trade partners, and customers.”

Elm Grove Exterior RemodelThe winning Bartelt project was originally a 1850s barn and was converted to a home in 1938. With so much charm and history, the homeowners wanted to retain and enhance the home’s original character while accommodating their modern lifestyle. The two-story addition houses a new mudroom, kitchen expansion, hearth room, master suite, and attached garage with a bonus room.

Bartelt Wins Two 2016 Regional Chrysalis Awards

On Monday, May 2, 2016, we were named a 2016 Regional Chrysalis Awards winner for the Addition Over $250,000 and Whole House Remodel $300,000 – $700,000 categories.

“We are honored to receive two 2016 Regional Chrysalis Awards, ” said Rick Bartelt, owner. “These awards are the result of the creativity and dedication of our outstanding team, trade partners, and customers.”

2016 Regional Chrysalis Winner - Addition Over $250,000The winning Bartelt projects each had unique components.  The Addition Over $250,000 home was originally a 1850s barn and was converted to a home in 1938. With so much charm and history, the homeowners wanted to retain and enhance the home’s original character while accommodating their modern lifestyle. The two-story addition houses a new mudroom, kitchen expansion, hearth room, master suite, and attached garage with a bonus room. Throughout the addition, it was important to create a rustic, yet refined aesthetic. This was achieved with beams, board and batten siding, shakes, layers of lighting, exposed wood, and other selections that acknowledge the home’s barn past.

2016 Regional Chrysalis Winner - Whole House Remodel $300,000-$700,000The Whole House Remodel $300,000 – $700,000 home was dated, compartmentalized, and stale. The homeowners wanted to update the space to accommodate their modern lifestyle, showcase their eclectic style, and take advantage of their beautiful setting. The exterior of the home was transformed with a metal roof, fieldstone, low maintenance siding, a pergola, cedar columns and brackets, and a screen porch. Inside the home, each room tells a “story,” with reclaimed pieces throughout the first floor – barn doors, beams, and boards. The first floor now has a more open concept, and there is a natural flow between indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces.

The Chrysalis Awards program, started in 1994, recognizes the nation’s best work in fifteen general categories of residential and commercial remodeling. The Chrysalis Awards are open to any professional remodeler and design professional in the United States.  The entries were judged on overall design, the creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure.
