Gadsden Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Nov. 20.

Ray Kennamer Construction, Inc. ranks 328 on the 2019 REMODELING 550 list of the nation’s biggest full-service remodelers, Ray Kennamer Construction, Inc. announced today.

The REMODELING 550 brings together the nation’s 550 biggest full-service remodelers, replacement contractor / home improvement firms, insurance restoration firms, and franchisors. Because the full-service and replacement firms operate so differently, the REMODELING 550 lists and ranks them separately.

“We opened our doors in 1994 and we’ve worked for nearly 25 years to build a reputation in our area for quality remodeling construction and we are honored to receive this distinction,” said Ray Kennamer, President of Ray Kennamer Construction. “There are roughly 100,000 remodeling firms in the U.S. with payrolls, so it’s great to know that we’re among the top full-service companies in the nation.”

There is a high turnover rate in remodeling, with roughly one-sixth of the firms going out of business annually. Bigger firms, by contrast, has a failure rate of less than 2%, suggesting REMODELING 550 status indicates companies have quality and staying power—two traits customers place a high value on.

REMODELING, published by Hanley Wood, is the leading publication in the home improvement industry. REMODELING has and continues to be the indispensable tool that remodelers cannot do without—delivering the business know-how, product and technical information that home improvement pros need to help make smart decisions that will shape their success.

Ray Kennamer Construction was founded in 1994 after the passing of Ray’s father, O.W. ‘Shorty’ Kennamer with the vision to provide quality craftsmanship in renovations, additions, and remodeling in the Marshall and Etowah County area. With over forty years of experience, Ray sets himself apart as an expert in the remodeling industry. Ray recruited his middle daughter, Kelly, to work with him to continue the legacy of high quality remodeling construction and since 2014 they have been able to complete over 100 projects with a unique working dynamic. The Ray Kennamer Construction motto towards remodeling and renovation has always been ‘the impossible just takes a little longer’.
