Readers Choose Their Favorite Companies
You voted. And voted. And voted. Introducing the Second Annual Best of Hawaii Home + Remodeling Awards, a reader’s-choice section featuring Hawaii’s top home-improvement professionals. An independent research company tabulated more than 6,000 votes in 36 categories including appliances, builders, furnishings, kitchen design, real estate and more. These are Hawaii’s best companies — as chosen by readers — for turning your dream home into a reality. 

Methodology
Reader survey conducted from July 26, 2016, to Sept. 5, 2016. Results tabulated by DataJoe Inc. and analyzed by Hawaii Home + Remodeling. Companies may only appear in a maximum of three categories. DataJoe, which does not warrant the data contained within the list are complete or accurate, also does not assume, and hereby disclaims, any liability to any person for any loss or damage caused by errors or omissions herein whether such errors or omissions result from negligence, accident or any other cause. All rights reserved. No commercial use of the information in this list may be made without written permission from DataJoe.

How was the list created? 
DataJoe Research facilitated a public voting process. DataJoe and the magazine reached out to both individuals and companies by various means, encouraging entities to vote and circulate the online ballot. Each person could vote for up to three businesses in each category. DataJoe reviewed and processed each ballot individually, checking for patterns or signs indicative of cheating. Finally, DataJoe presented the tallied result to the magazine for final review. 

Final Note 
This list is only a sampling of an array of companies within the region. Inclusion in the list is based on the opinions of respondents in the region. DataJoe makes every reasonable effort to ensure fair voting, although it understands the results of this survey nomination are not an objective metric. 

Disclaimers 
DataJoe uses best practices and exercises great care in assembling content for this list.
