CASTLE Receives Achievement in Consumer Excellence Award


July 20, 2010—CASTLE BUILDING & REMODELING, INC. is a proud recipient of a 2010 Achievement in Consumer Excellence (ACE) award for providing an elite level of service to consumers.

Hosted by the Minnesota Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI of MN), the ACE award program gives consumers the opportunity to rate remodeling service providers in five categories: quality, responsiveness, meeting deadlines, professionalism, and communication. To qualify for the award companies must submit five consumer completed surveys and receive an average rating of four out of a possible five points across all categories, without having any score lower than three in any individual category. CASTLE BUILDING & REMODELING, INC. is honored to have achieved this service award.

NARI of Minnesota established the Achievement in Consumer Excellence (ACE) Award in 2010 to increase consumer confidence in hiring NARI of MN members and to recognize industry professionals who provide superior service based on consumer ratings. Award recipients will be recognized in local publications and on the NARI of Minnesota website.

NARI is a not-for-profit trade association committed to promoting the interests of its members within the remodeling industry, and acting as a resource to remodel-ready homeowners. The only national association dedicated solely to the remodeling industry, NARI acts as an industry spokes group.

Castle is Lead-Safe Certified by the EPA

Beginning in April 2010, a new federal law requires contractors that are hired to perform renovations, repairs, or painting projects in homes, child-care facilities, and schools built before 1978 that will disturb lead-based paint to be certified in lead procedures and to follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.

Loren Schirber, owner of Castle Building & Remodeling, has attained the necessary certification by the Enviromental Protection Agency, which allows Castle to perform renovations in a lead-safe manner and according to the guidelines.

Remodeling is notorious for creating dust, and dust is the main source of lead from existing lead paint in homes. Keep yourself and your family safe – Make sure that your contractor is certified for handling lead per the EPA guidelines.

For more information on lead, call the the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (5323) or visit their website at
