Danville, CA, February 2024—The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) has named Gayler Design Build of Danville, California, the 2024 Region 7 Southwest Regional Contractor of the Year (CotY) winner, in the Residential Exterior category (in the from $100K to $200K range category).

“We were thrilled and honored to receive this distinguished award,” admits Chris Gayler, President and General Manager. “Our entry also embodies our firm’s commitment to clients for delivering quality craftsmanship, dependable communication, and personalized care in every detail from design through construction.”


“This winning project was particularly challenging and rewarding from a design and construction standpoint,” adds Genaro Alvarado Jr., Production Manager at Gayler, “The family not only needed additional space for a dedicated home office, but needed a refurbished exterior to enhance its curb appeal, and further boost their home’s value. So we created both a luxurious interior, and a new facade that seamlessly blended with the original structure, exceeding our client’s expectations both functionally and aesthetically.”

The CotY Awards are the highest form of recognition by industry leaders and peers. NARI received over 600 entries from across the United States representing over $230 million in remodeling projects.
