Held during the Remodeling Show in Baltimore, members and local councils were recognized for their achievements in remodeling and leadership.
Maltzman, the founder and co-owner of Orlando-based SMA Consulting for 20 years, was a respected business resource for small builders and remodelers across the country known for his sound advice, incredible work ethic and genial personality.
He also was instrumental to the success of NAHB's Builder 20 program and was a guiding force for NAHB's Business Management and Information Technology Committee, Education Committee and the NAHB Remodelers.
“Steve provided many remodelers with sound financial and business advice that not only kept them afloat, but helped them to thrive,” said NAHB Remodelers Chairman Donna Shirey, CGR, CAPS, CGP, president of Shirey Contracting in Issaquah, Wash.
“We are thrilled to recognize his lifetime achievements with the NAHB Remodelers’ most prestigious award,” Shirey said.
Maltzman's mother, wife and a family friend were at the gala to accept the award.
The Pella Corporation sponsored the induction ceremony.
Schwab Recognized as Remodeler of the Year
Sherry Schwab, CGR, CAPS, of HCS Construction Services in Bellevue, Wash., was named 2010 Remodeler of the Year in recognition of her professional remodeling achievements and support of the industry.
Since 1978, Schwab’s family remodeling company has earned many accolades and local honors. She attributes part of her success to education and designations, for which she has become an instructor and avid proponent. Schwab is active at the local, state and national levels of NAHB. She also leads community service projects, such as building ramps on homes for adults and children with disabilities.
“Sherry promotes professionalism, education and quality of services as a leading remodeler,” said Shirey. “I’m thrilled to bestow this award on a remodeler who has achieved so much in her business, has donated to community service causes, and has worked to advance the remodeling industry.”
Qualified Remodeler magazine and the Pella Corporation sponsored the Remodeler of the Year award.

Remodeled kitchen in planned retirement home by Jeanine Clark, CAPS, of Mannigan Design.
Clark was recognized in the “Major Space” category for remodeling a couple’s planned retirement home. She integrated aging-in-place and universal design features to create invisible functionality. The project included creating a level transition from the home’s courtyard and patio to the interior, wider hallways, improved lighting, a no-step shower and a more open floor plan.
Award-winning masculine bath by Carla Aston, ASID, RID, CAPS, of Aston Design Studio.
Aston earned the award for remodeling the bathroom for a home owner with paralysis.

The bathroom was expanded to include a spa tub, more turning space for a wheelchair and a no-step shower with handheld fixtures.
