MN Women’s Press – What Women Want – Please vote for Castle

Please complete a short survey from the Womens’ Press. This survey asks women to vote for their favorites in many categories. We’re hoping that you’ll include Castle Building & Remodeling as your favorite. “Favorite what,” you ask? We were honored to be voted as Favorite Residential Remodeler in 2008 and 2009 and had hoped to make it three years in a row, but our friends at The Womens’ Press have decided the category of favorite Home Remodeler will not be on the survey this year. Hmmm? So we ask that you write Castle in under the last category of “Anything We Left Out?” as “Castle Building & Remodeling – Favorite Design/Build Remodeler.” Click here to complete the survey.

Castle Joins the 3/50 Project aimed at saving America’s Brick & Mortar Local Stores

Castle Building & Remodeling is proud to have joined the 3/50 project which is dedicated towards saving the brick and mortar local stores that our contry is built on. Did you know that for every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures. If you spend that in a national chain (i.e. Home Depot), only $43 stays here. Spend it online and nothing comes home. Click here to find out more.
