Achievements – Remodeling Magazine’s Big 50

Lagrangeville, NY – June 8th, 2012 –
Ryan Parsons And Ken Parsons, owners of The Brothers That Just Do Gutters, have been selected by Remodeling magazine to join the Remodeling Big50. The Big50 achievement awards were presented at a gala dinner at the Remodeling Leadership Conference in Baltimore, MD on May 11, 2012. The 2012 Big50 winners are featured in the May issue of Remodeling, a national trade publication read by more than 80,000 professional remodeling contractors.

Each year since 1986, the Remodeling Big50 inducts 50 owners of remodeling companies that have set exceptionally high standards for professionalism and integrity through exemplary business practices, craftsmanship, and impact in their community or the industry at large. Big50 remodelers run successful, often growing, companies of various sizes that have taken the lead in raising industry standards.

The Big50 selection process has become increasingly rigorous in recent years, and the result, Remodeling editors believe, is one of the strongest classes to date. All 2012 inductees “stood up to detailed examinations of their businesses and their books, and they all demonstrated an admirably deft ability to restructure, retrench, and flat-out hustle to remain viable in a challenging economic climate,” according to Remodeling.

“We are very honored to receive this distinction,” says Ken Parsons, Senior Solutionist of The Brothers That Just Do Gutters. “The award recognizes excellence and leadership, and we are privileged to be named to this select group of remodelers.”

Remodeling editors, columnists, industry leaders, and the companies themselves make the nominations each year.  Following a lengthy evaluation and interview process, the editors select the 50 individuals who exemplify the best of the industry that year, and who have something to offer other remodelers in proven practices. Winners are selected in these categories: business savvy, fine design, industry impact, market wise, movers & shakers, niches, sales & marketing, and teamwork. The Brothers That Just Do Gutters was selected for the category of Niches.

Remodeling, published by Hanley Wood, LLC, is the leading publication in the home improvement industry. Designed to address the specific concerns of residential remodeling pros, the magazine is both a business tool and an industry leader for a market that reached $278 billion in 2011.

On their business cards, Ken and Ryan Parsons list themselves as “Solutionists.” And, glancing at those business cards, you don’t even want to ask the Parsons if their company  does more than gutters. They learned that lesson early. New gutters are 70% of their work; gutter covers and cleaning, the remainder.

Ken Parsons, then a history teacher, started installing and replacing gutters during summer breaks. Financial success convinced him to “toss my degree in the gutter.” Last year the company doubled its sales after The Brothers launched a tenacious event-marketing program.

The Parsons credit their success to branding, team-building, and accountability. “We don’t micromanage. Our guys get their paperwork and they’re responsible for their own jobs,” Ken says.
