For more than 75 years, Professional Builder magazine has been dedicated to serving the needs of the nation’s home building community — builders, designers and trade partners — with award-winning content and proven, practical solutions.
Each month, the magazine reaches 107,500 professionals* in all segments of home building — from single- and multi-family builders to systems and modular builders. Our editorial platform is keenly focused on helping companies of all sizes profitably run their businesses by delivering timely, executable advice through our team of award-winning editors and industry experts.
In 2012, through our print and digital offerings, Professional Builder is more deeply connected than ever to all segments of the home-building industry — meeting the challenges of a slowly recovering economy and the evolving wants, needs and standards of the American home buyer.
Professional Builder has won dozens of major editorial awards throughout its 75-year history. On March 16, 2012, the magazine was awarded a Jesse H. Neal Award from the American Business Media for “Best Subject-Related Series of Articles”, and was named a Finalist for a “Grand Neal” award. More recently on July 26, 2012, Professional Remodeler won a special recognition from the American Society of Business Press Editors for Multi-platform Presentation of the Year.
Professional Builder is best known for:
Show Village – For 13 years, Professional Builder’s Show Village has served as the premier show home exhibit at the International Builders’ Show. A series of demonstration homes are designed and built outside the convention center with the participation of industry-leading builders and product manufacturers.
Professional Builder of the Year – This is one of the industry’s highest distinctions. Each year, the editors select one builder who has paved the way for the rest of the industry — whether related to business results, product innovation, construction process, customer experience/satisfaction, community outreach or other aspects of the business.
Housing Giants - For more than 40 years, Professional Builder has tracked and reported the financial and business results of the nation’s largest home-building companies. The resulting Housing Giants Report is published each year in the May issue, complete with a ranking of more than 200 firms.
National Housing Quality Awards – Since 1993, Professional Builder and the NAHB Research Center have teamed up to sponsor the National Housing Quality Awards — the highest recognition a builder can earn in the area of quality management.
Professional Builder Design Awards – Professional Builder honors the best of the best in residential design with the PB Design Awards.
40 Under 40 Awards – Representing the next generation of leaders in the home building industry, this awards program profiles 40 young superstars who are all under the age of 40 and are doing remarkable things to advance the building industry. Winners are featured speakers at IBS Live, where a special reception will be held at IBS 2013.
101 Best New Products – Each year, Professional Builder’s editorial staff evaluates hundreds of building industry products introduced during the previous 12 months to come up with its annual 101 Best New Products report. The resulting list represents the latest breakthrough products for the residential construction industry.
Our management team is headed by Group Director Tony Mancini and Patrick O’Toole, Publisher of Professional Builder and Editorial Director of our Residential Construction Group. We have made significant investments in virtually all areas of the business.
Professional Builder is published in a large-format size (9″ x 10.75″) and on higher-grade paper, allowing us to showcase more great projects and ideas each month. It also gives PB advertisers a new exciting platform for their marketing message.
