BELLEVUE, Wash.—June 12, 2021—For the 35th year in a row, the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties (MBAKS) hosted their annual Remodeling/Trades Remodeling Excellence (REX/T-REX) Awards.

The REX / T-REX Awards, presented by the Remodelers Council of MBAKS, encourages local remodelers and builders to submit their best projects of the year.

The categories are as follows: Bath Excellence, Kitchen Excellence, Residential Remodel Excellence, Green Remodel Excellence, Exterior Remodel Excellence, Landscape & Outdoor Living Excellence, Get Away Room & Specialty Space Excellence, and Design Excellence.

REX/T-REX entries were judged on the following categories:

  1. Aesthetics—How is the remodel visually appealing?
  2. Special or unique design solutions—How was the space planned and was livability considered?
  3. Quality workmanship—What are the special features of the project and is there attention to detail?
  4. Use of appropriate building material—Does the remodel complement existing structure and design?
  5. Budgetary consideration—How did the project keep within the budget and still deliver client expectations?
  6. Challenges and obstacles—Were there any unexpected obstacles that called for adjustments?
