J.C. Restoration, Inc. (JCR) has earned a 2021 Chrysalis Award for Remodeling Excellence. The independent restoration company was one of 70 companies from across the United States honored. JCR received the honor in the commercial project category, project total valued at under $500,000. Entries for the award were judged on overall design, the creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure. 

“It is an honor to receive this acknowledgment from the Chrysalis Awards,” said general manager Steve Rost. “J.C. Restoration works very hard to do right by our customers in the area of reconstruction and remodeling. We are pleased to be included on this prestigious list of winners.”
The winning project consisted of a 20-story apartment building that suffered a fire, which was in turn severely damaged by water. JCR was initially hired for floors six through 10, then was quickly asked to take over the entire building’s restoration needs. A total of 130 apartments required reconstruction services, plus 15 hallways and common areas on the 6th floor. The project had a strong sense of urgency, due to the sheer number of displaced residents. JCR crews completed all the units in just over two months.

“To win an award in this highly competitive category is quite an achievement,” says Ken Kanline, director of the awards. The Chrysalis Awards program, launched in 1994, recognizes the nation’s best work in 14 general categories of residential and commercial remodeling. The awards are open to every professional remodeler and design professional in the U.S.

J.C. Restoration is a quickly-growing independent restoration company that has been in the business of restoring damaged properties in the greater Chicagoland area since 1982. JCR offers complete emergency mitigation and restoration services for properties affected by water, fire, smoke, storms and mold.
