Ah, the victory lap. It’s become one of the most endearing celebrations in all of sport. The victory lap is more commonly seen in auto racing (though the donuts in the winners’ circle is starting to take over that sport), and it’s still a staple in track and field events (usually accompanied by the flag of the winner’s nation). You even see it with teams in football, soccer, and other sports after they win a particularly big game.
Since home improvement isn’t the same thing as sports, Harry Helmet can’t take a real victory lap – only a virtual one. That’s because the company has been named to the 2014 “America’s Top Remodelers” list as published in Professional Remodeler magazine. And it’s the second straight year that Harry Helmet has made this impressive list.
A Second Appearance on a Noteworthy List
Each year, Professional Remodeler examines more than twenty different American remodeling markets to determine the leaders in each of these markets. The magazine figures out which companies earn the most revenue and complete the highest number of projects during the (past) year.
Harry Helmet checked in at number 44 on the 2014 America’s Top Remodeler’s list, which is two slots higher than their number 46 showing on the 2013 list. The company’s projected revenue for 2014 was $15.5 million, which was a four percent increase over the previous year’s total. Harry Helmet, which now boasts 76 employees, was one of only two gutter repair and replacement companies to make the top 50 of the America’s Top Remodeler’s list.
The Great Products of Harry Helmet
As in years past, the vast majority of Harry Helmet’s revenue came from the purchase of the company’s signature product: the Gutter Helmet gutter protection system. Homeowners who have the Gutter Helmet system installed over their existing guttering systems can rest easy knowing that their home is fully protected against water damage caused by improper runoff water displacement – and they’ll never have to clean their gutters again!
However, Harry Helmet has expanded its portfolio of home improvement services since it was founded in 1981. Today, Harry Helmet also offers Helmet Heat, a product with a self-regulating heating cable that helps prevent snowpack accumulation and ice dams during the winter months, as well as seamless gutters for homeowners who need to replace their entire guttering system.
In addition, Harry Helmet performs full roof replacements using high-quality roofing materials that are available in a wide variety of styles and colors. Homeowners can even obtain an attractive, durable retractable awning from Sunesta; which can be installed by Harry Helmet technicians in order to provide shade for their patios and porches with the touch of a button.
Given Harry Helmet’s rapid expansion in recent years, it would be easy for the company to beat its chest and strut its stuff in celebration. But that’s not quite the way that Del Thebaud, Sr. President and owner of Harry Helmet, is reacting to its recent honor. Here’s what he said:
“Being included on “America’s Top Remodelers” list for the second year in a row is a thrill for my staff and I. Being deemed a market leader in our respective industry validates all the hard work and dedication put forth by all of our employees in the past year. Speaking on behalf of the whole team here, we look forward to continued growth and reaching new heights as a company in 2015.”
