NAHB Remodelers recently inducted Vince Butler, CAPS, GMB, GMR, a remodeler from Clifton, Va., and Tim Faller, a remodeler from Linthicum, Md., into the National Remodeling Hall of Fame for their contributions to the remodeling industry.
"It is an honor to induct these men into the National Remodeling Hall of Fame for their efforts to educate and support our industry," said NAHB Remodelers Chair Alan Archuleta. "Both have made an immense impact through their individual contributions to the industry, as well as their mentorship and knowledge sharing to ensure a strong remodeling community."
Butler has led Butler Brothers Corporation as president since 1984, and he has been an active member of the Northern Virginia Building Industry Association (NVBIA) since he joined in 1997. Butler served in many leadership roles at NVBIA, including Remodelers Council chair, Senior Life Director and president. At the national level, he also served NAHB as the National Remodelers Chair in 2006, the Membership Committee Chair in 2008 and the National Education Committee Chair in 2014. Butler is a nationally recognized speaker on residential construction management topics and an approved NAHB Master Instructor.
He has taught courses and presented at many regional trade shows on subjects ranging from aging-in-place to business management, always emphasizing the importance of education and technical training. He was named NAHB CAPS Educator of the Year in 2012 and Builder Remodeler Educator of the Year in 2017. During the height of the pandemic in 2020, Butler began facilitating Shop Talks for the NAHB Remodelers Council to keep members connected in a time of isolation, and he continues to volunteer his time and expertise to these Shop Talks today to foster both the sharing of knowledge and the strengthening of the NAHB Remodelers community.
Faller is the Senior Consultant and Master of Production for Remodelers Advantage Inc. Faller shares his field and business ownership experience by facilitating professional "roundtable" groups for business owners and production managers. He also provides on-site production training to remodelers all over the United States and Canada. Since the late 90s, Faller has provided consulting to over 150 companies, many of whom are NAHB members.
For more than 40 years, Faller's insights and mentoring have influenced individuals and businesses in the United States, Canada and Australia through personal consulting, books, articles in trade magazines, production management roundtables and his popular podcast, The Tim Faller Show. One of his most notable achievements is his refinement of the Lead Carpenter System, which allows remodelers to accurately predict and improve the outcomes of their work, leading to more efficient job sites. With his inspirational instruction and personal example, he challenges people and companies to grow and excel in their dedication to their work.
As the newest inductees into the National Remodeling Hall of Fame, Butler and Faller were recognized during the Remodeling Hall of Fame Social in the Remodelers Central, sponsored by Ferguson, during the 2023 International Builders' Show in Las Vegas.
