News & Awards
This is the third outdoor project completed by Franko - LaFratta Construction, Inc. Richmond, Va., in the past year, so co-owner Mark Franko is declaring outdoor projects a trend.
Franko says people understand that a recession can be a good time to remodel.
Franko – LaFratta Construction, Inc. recently received two Chrysalis Awards, both nationally and regionally. Franko – LaFratta took national honors in the “Residential Specialty Feature” category for a custom shelving system installed in a Historic Fan area home, as well as South region honors for the “Bath Remodel” in the highest category for a home on Richmond’s Grove Avenue.
“Winning awards in multiple categories is difficult to do. Not only does this speak to their versatility, but to their commitment to quality on every project,” says Ken Kanline, Director of the Awards. This recognition came recently after Franko – LaFratta received national and local exposure in Restoration Magazine and R-Home Magazine.
What I Like: Grohe Bath Fittings
Mark Franko, co-owner of Franko-LaFratta Construction, in Richmond, Va., talks
Mark says: With clients putting more focus on the shower, as opposed to the large tub, Grohe fixtures allow us the flexibility to put together a wide array of shower options. Grohe was once known for having only clean, modern styles. They have listened to the market and now also offer traditional styles.
