Steve Cunningham of Williamsburg, Va. has been named the 2019 Remodeler of the Year by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

The award recognizes superior business management, exemplary NAHB involvement at all levels and outstanding contributions to the remodeling industry.

Steve Cunningham of Cunningham Contracting is the 2019 NAHB Remodeler of the Year.

“Steve has become a distinguished remodeler over the last three decades by providing excellent work for his customers and has sincere enthusiasm to give back to his local community and industry,” said NAHB Remodelers Chair Tim Ellis, a remodeler from Bel Air, Md. “We are thrilled to honor him with this prestigious award.”

Cunningham first obtained his business license in 1988 and founded Cunningham Contracting Inc. as a flooring and tile company. In 2007, Steve expanded his company into general contracting.

As a member of the Peninsula Home Builders Association (now merged with Tidewater Builders Association) and NAHB Remodelers since 2012, Cunningham has served in local and national leadership roles for both organizations, including 2016 president of the local association and 2017 chair of his local Remodelers Council.

Cunningham has been recognized by his peers with the NAHB Remodelers Chairman’s Distinguished Service Award in 2017, NAHB Remodeler of the Month in Sept. 2018, Best Builder Award from Peninsula HBA and a Guild Quality GuildMaster Award.

Cunningham Contracting is dedicated to giving back to the community. The company has built two houses for Habitat for Humanity as well as several other projects. Along with the local HBA, Cunningham helped to remodel and design a little girl’s bedroom with the RocSolid Foundation to benefit children with cancer. In 2017, Cunningham Contracting and the members of the local Remodeler’s Council fully renovated the home of a York County veteran.

Cunningham will be honored on Jan. 21, 2020, during the NAHB Remodelers All-Stars Celebration in conjunction with the NAHB International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.
