FARGO, N.D., Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrity Windows and Doors announces the best in the world of building with its 2014 Red Diamond Achiever Awards (RDA). This contest offers builders, remodelers and architects the opportunity to showcase innovative projects that use Integrity Windows and Doors. This year's award winners feature a mix of residential and commercial projects from seven different builders/remodelers from across the country.
This year's RDA program received 211 entries, of which, six winners were chosen by a panel of industry experts including: Amy Albert, Chief Editor of Custom Home and Senior Editor of BUILDER; Lou Manfredini, DIY expert, radio and television host; Christine Marvin, Director of Marketing at Marvin Windows and Doors; and Shawn McCadden, speaker, business trainer, columnist and remodeler). And a seventh "People's Choice" winner was chosen from all RDA entries through three rounds of public voting.
Judged winners will receive a VIP tour of Minneapolis and Warroad, Minn., including a special reception with Integrity leadership and Marvin family members, and the People's Choice winner will receive an iPad Air. New for this year, all Red Diamond Achiever winners and other top entries will also be featured in a 2015 calendar, which will be available fall, 2014.
Richard Perrone, the builder of the RDA-winning Bonaire house in Sarasota, Fla. said, "We use a significant amount of Integrity windows and doors in the homes we build. To us there is good value in the product; it's a very handsome product and stands up extremely well in the coastal environments in which we build. With this being a model home that we were also marketing to sell, the perception of value that these windows and doors conveyed was excellent."
