There are only days left to submit an entry for Durability + Design’s inaugural Elevation Awards. If you or one of your clients completed an exceptional project between Jan. 1, 2016, and March 1, 2017, be sure to get your nominations in the running and turn in your submission by Friday (May 26).


It only takes about 20 minutes to submit your project—a time investment that will pay off in exposure for your company, products and services. The awards will be judged by a panel of 12 esteemed industry professionals who will review each entry from nine technical and aesthetic award categories.

Technical award categories include:

  • Air Barrier/Moisture Management;
  • Floor Coatings + Treatments;
  • Renovation/Retrofit; and
  • Roof Coatings.
