Our homes are more than structures. They are the places we live, where we shape each day of our lives and help create our futures. As Winston Churchill once said, “We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.”
For this reason, the builders who construct our homes also help to construct our future lives as well.
In 2018, we brought you the Top 200 Experts in the construction industry, and now we bring you an updated list of experts for 2019. You will see some familiar faces from previous lists, as well as a few new faces who have emerged as industry leaders for 2019.
We selected each industry expert for their knowledge, expertise, and experience, as well as the awards they have recently won and how they engage with others online and in social media. We present them alphabetically in simple, beautiful, and easy-to-view graphics that let you quickly and easily see their names, companies, and websites.
You can see the full list.
Who Are the Experts and How We Selected Them
This list of construction industry experts is made up of industry-wide professionals who design, build, or are otherwise experts and leaders within the home construction industry. We included home builders, energy-efficient home experts, highly experienced and recognized contractors, as well as experts in home improvements and editors of the most prestigious building industry magazines.
Each choice was considered and made based on their total experience, expertise in their field, and the awards they have won. And because the most effective experts are the ones who can make their voices heard, we also looked at how they interact with a wider audience and how they relay their ideas and influence others. We, therefore, examined their impact on the industry through the lens of social media channels and contributions to other websites and organizations.

As Ludwig Mies van der Rohe said, “The architect must get to know the people who live in the planned house. From their needs, the rest inevitably follows.” True builders create the places where we can all feel at “home.”
