Enjoy an elevated REX experience in 2024

The 2024 Remodeling Excellence (REX) Awards program features exciting changes to complement our popular legacy categories. New in 2024:

  • Best Small Space Solution
  • Most Artistically Aesthetic
  • Best Problem Solution
  • Best for Entertaining
  • Outdoor Solution
  • People's Choice (with live voting at the awards banquet)

The 2024 REX Awards will deliver an enhanced experience, from the location to the modern design elements to the elevated attendee options. Participants can choose to attend and enjoy the traditional REX experience or select from upgrades that will create an evening to remember. Specific details and options coming soon.

The Remodeling Excellence (REX) and Trades Remodeling Excellence (T-REX) Awards are presented by the Remodelers Council of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, the oldest Remodelers Council in the nation.
