RALEIGH, N.C. (April 28, 2014) – Rufty Homes has been awarded “Best Of Houzz” by Houzz.com, the leading platform for home remodeling and design. Rufty has been building and remodeling fine custom homes since 1988 and was chosen by the more than 16 million monthly users that comprise the Houzz community.
The Best Of Houzz award is given in two categories: Customer Satisfaction and Design. Customer Satisfaction honors are determined by a variety of service-related factors, including the number and quality of client reviews a pro
fessional received in 2013. Design award winners’ work was the most popular among the more than 16 million monthly users on Houzz who saved more than 230 million professional images of home interiors and exteriors to their personal ideabooks via the Houzz site, iPad/iPhoneapp and Androidapp.

“There was never a question that they were putting our needs first and they were always honest with us. At one point in the building process, we talked in-depth about reconfiguring the layout of the home to change the orientation of the garage. Jon was upfront with us and told us they’d absolutely do it if we wanted, but he warned us that lumber prices were starting to go up, which could impact the project.”
- Chad & Caroline
“We put a lot of time and thought into designing our home, and it was important to us that we could find a builder that would support our vision, while also helping us make smart design decisions. After our first meeting with Rufty Homes, it was clear that they understood our goals and were on board some of the more unique aspects that were important to us.”
