Duckstein Restoration Blue Hammer and Golden Hammer Awards


Nationwide's Blue Hammer and Contractor Connection's Golden Hammer Awards

On June 8, 2018, a team from Duckstein Restoration returned to Pittsburgh from the 20th Annual Contractor Connection Conference & Expo in Indianapolis, Indiana, not only with new acquaintances and restoration ideas, but with two distinguished awards: the Nationwide Blue Hammer Award and Contractor Connection’s Golden Hammer Top Performer Award. These awards recognize customer service excellence in the restoration industry and are Pittsburgh-area firsts.

The Nationwide Blue Hammer Award is given annually to six contractors in the U.S. that participate in the company’s Property Repair Network of contractors. Each recipient represents one of six geographic claim zones that Nationwide recognizes, with Duckstein Restoration earning its award in the Northeast Region. For this award, we compete with thousands of contractor candidates from Pennsylvania, New York, and throughout all of New England. Nationwide selects winners by weighing assessment criteria such as customer and adjuster satisfaction, the timeliness of completed jobs, having accurately documented information, and assignment volume from the previous year – with Duckstein Restoration having had more than double the volume of competing contractors.

Contractor Connection is the largest managed repair network in North America, overseeing a network of qualified contract vendors that work with multiple insurance carriers. It awarded its Golden Hammer Top Performer Award to Duckstein Restoration for its specialty services, including mitigation. 

What does this mean for you? It means that when you’re working with Duckstein Restoration, you’re working with one of the best restoration companies in the United States–and the top company in the Northeast. When you come from Pittsburgh, winning one championship isn’t enough. We’re only going to work harder to continue and improve to remain the best company anyone could want to work with in the restoration world.
