Gryphon Builders Honored as Star Award Winner

Local remodeling company tapped for "Best Print Ad"

(Houston, TX, September 21, 2010) - On September 15, 2010, Gryphon Builders was awarded a coveted Texas Association of Builders Star Award in the category "Best Print Ad—Remodeler." The award will be presented October 14 in Grapevine, Texas, as part of the 2010 Sunbelt Builders Show.

Gyphon Builders' award-winning print ad was originally published in the 2010 Houston Remodeling Guide. The ad was designed to highlight the green features of the nation's first Certified Green Renovation, built by the company this year. The home is a Certified Green Home under the ICC 700-2008 National Green Building Standard. The Houston home in was once a one-story, three-bedroom 1950s ranch style house in Afton Oaks, and has been transformed into a two-story, five bedroom, traditional style home that qualifies for green certification.

"We are so excited and honored to receive this award," said Allen Griffin, CGR, GMB, CAPS, CGP, owner and founder of Gryphon Builders. "The goal of our 2010 advertising is to educate consumers on the benefits of green remodeling. Revitalizing older homes makes sense economically, and remodeling is often a better option for the overall environment because much of the old structure is reused and updated with the latest technologies, compared to a tear down which would all be in a landfill."

The winning ad was designed and executed by Larissa Michael, owner and founder of Volume Control, a public relations and marketing firm in Houston.
