PSN Top 50 Builders

Cascade Custom Pools Awarded PSN Top 50 Builders Award for 2017!

PSN Top 50 Builders have represented a solid industry presence. After 15 years, they do not disappoint. 

All Top 50 honorees withstand judging on five criteria:

Revenue: This encompasses total residential construction revenue, derived by adding new residential construction and renovation revenues. This is taken as an indicator of business acumen and weighs most heavily in the scoring.

Staff: Here, builders are asked to provide detailed information about staff-training regimens and average staff tenure. As employees comprise a company’s most valuable resource, this score also holds significant sway.

Industry involvement: Joiners and leaders are rewarded. High marks go to those who belong to organizations inside and outside the industry.

Web presence: Companies are judged on the design, usability and educational value of their websites, in addition to the effectiveness of social media engagement.

Community involvement: Philanthropy and volunteerism add a small but important boost to each builder’s score, to recognize the importance of good citizenship.
