April Bettinger Named 2020 Remodeler of the Year as Nip Tuck Remodeling Earns Two REX Awards

The Remodeling Excellence (REX) and Trades Remodeling Excellence (T-REX) Awards were presented by the Remodelers Council of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, the oldest Remodelers Council in the nation, during a virtual event on August 15. Nip Tuck Remodeling came away with 2 REX awards.

Not only did the Nip Tuck team walk away with two awards, but Nip Tuck Remodeling owner April Bettinger was selected by her peers to receive the 2020 Remodelers Council Remodeler of the Year award. As the 2020 Chair of the RC, April was responsible for working with and guiding her peers throughout a most challenging year.

“I cannot thank my fellow remodelers enough for banding together as we all navigated our teams through COVID-19 (and continue to do so). We have learned so much from one another, and I am very thankful that I have had the opportunity to both give and receive in a meaningful way. This association and specifically our Remodelers Council, is near and dear to my heart,” April said. “I am honored and humbled to have been selected by my peers to receive the 2020 Remodelers Council Remodeler of the Year award.”

Bath Excellence – $55,000 to $75,000 category

REX Award winning bath by Nip Tuck Remodeling

In an already beautiful home, this master suite was ready for an update. The clients wanted to modernize the look while making the shower more accessible.  We removed curved walls and the enclosed cave-like shower in favor of a more spacious and open feeling. The glass shower surround goes to the floor, with a zero-clearance entry and no door. This allows for getting in and out of the shower with ease. A floating vanity, LED mirrors, and joystick-controlled faucets further reinforce the contemporary elements of this home. Naturally textured tile selections warm up the space. A reconfiguration of the closet makes storage of and access to all the necessities a breeze. See the gallery.

Get-Away Room – More Than $50,000 category

The homeowner wanted a space that wasn't simply a laundry room but rather a space that provided more function and brightness. The old laundry room was dark just a room you passed through when coming in and out of the garage. Now our homeowner has a space that is bright and cheery and a place where she can work as well. See the gallery.

There is nothing more motivating than to be recognized by our peers for the projects we get the privilege to build. You can see all of the winners here. With multiple entries and steep competition, we are so honored to have received two coveted awards.

Our projects succeed because our entire team is committed to putting forth their best effort. That is truer this year than ever before, given all of the additional safety requirements. We applaud the entire Nip Tuck team, as well as our partners, colleagues, and vendors, for their hard work and dedication.

Thank you to the Remodelers Council of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties for the recognition. And thank you so much to our clients who continue to inspire us to be innovative and creative in achieving their goals and creating the homes of their dreams.

If you’re ready for us to help you create the home you deserve, it all starts with a phone call.


We are pleased to announce that Nip Tuck Remodeling has earned two REX Awards and April has been named the 2020 Remodelers Council Remodeler of the Year
