What do you call it when something good happens three years in a row? It’s certainly not a “turkey” like in bowling. “Third time’s the charm” makes it sound like we didn’t win it before. Perhaps there is nothing to call it but a tremendous and humbling honor. Archadeck of Columbus is so excited to have won the prestigious Consumer’s Choice Award for 2014 in the category of Home Improvement: Patio and Deck Builders. In fact, we are honored that this is the 3rd year in a row that we’ve won.
You may be wondering how the nomination and award selection process works in competitions like this. The Consumer’s Choice Award board advertised on TV and radio for people to visit their website to nominate a business. People were not given a list to choose from. They needed to already know about our company. The were asked to “consider issues such as Value, Service, Professionalism, Appearance of the Business or any other criteria you wish to take into account.”
After Consumer’s Choice collected nominations, it hired a top consumer research company called Survey Sampling International® to query a panel of roughly 5,000 respondents in the Columbus area. Next, a legal panel validates the work of the consumers by reviewing the background of each of the companies to make sure that they meet important ethical standards. Only after a company clears all of those hurdles can it be named a Consumers’ Choice Award winner.
I wish I could thank all the people who helped us to win this award through nominating or voting for us. I’d like to thank the people who helped us earn this recognition: my office, design, and construction staff. If you haven’t met them, you should. You couldn’t ask for a nicer, more professional group to work with. I’m so lucky. We will continue to work hard through 2015 to earn the privilege of winning this prestigious award again next spring. Even if we are not lucky enough to win for a 4th year, I’d be satisfied to spend another year creating more gorgeous Columbus decks, porches, patios and outdoor living spaces for our local Buckeye families.
If you have a Columbus outdoor living space you are considering for 2015, we’d love to hear from you: (740) 879 – 3730 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The consultation is completely free.
