The BIG 50

Thorson named one of the Nation's Top 50 Remodelers & Receives the Customer Service Excellence Award!

Thorson Big 50

Every year Remodeling Magazine scours the nation in search of companies that demonstrate broad expertise, sound business judgement, and a high degree of professionalism to make up their elite group of the Remodeling BIG 50.

The Judges try to uncover what it is about a particular company that makes it stand out from the crowd. Candidates are compared to one another and are graded on a curve, as it were.The companies chosen for the BIG 50 class of 2012 represent the very peak of that curve. In a climate in which survival is considered an achievement, they have somehow managed to thrive. Within that group, a chosen few companies are further honored to be awarded the Customer Service Excellence Award.

We are very proud to have been counted as one of the top 50 remodeling companies nationwide for 2012 as well as to be among the top 3 in the Big 50 class that earned the Customer Service Excellence Award for providing exemplary service and delivering an exceptional remodeling experience.

Feature Project

One of our Favorites...

This New Custom Home makes the list of one of our favorite projects for a few reasons. Although completed several years ago the home design is a classic that will always stand the test of time. We were also very privileged to be a part of this project as it meant a new beginning for the owners who had lost everything in a devastating fire.

The collaboration between us, the homeowner and architect helped to make the project progress quickly and efficiently. The homeowners were thrilled with the results and grateful to once again have a place to call home.

Here is what the client had to say:

"Our previous home on this site was destroyed in a devastating fire in which we lost everything. Working to build this home with Eric and the crew was a source of great joy and satisfaction, in a period in our life where there was not much to feel happy about. Eric anticipated any problems we might encounter, helped us make decisions, and kept the momentum going so that we could move back only 16 months after the fire. They did a terrific job and I always unequivocally recommend them to others"
