The Selection Process
Window & Door’s Dealers of the Year are chosen by the magazine’s editors. The selection process begins with a review of all nominations, and follow-up calls to the nominee and other references. Winners are determined based on information gathered, with the goal of not only recognizing clear leadership and excellence, but also compelling stories. In presenting awards to Dealers of the Year, we do not claim that our winners are the best. We say they are among the best. We present our winners to provide benchmarks for professionalism in the window and door industry, to offer new ideas that others can implement in their businesses, and to highlight the continued development and evolution of companies in the window and door supply chain.
