  • Big 50 Award – In 2010, Paul Zachman, owner of Boardwalk Design, was selected by Remodeling magazine to join the Remodeling Big50. As part of the Remodeling Big 50 selection process companies were asked to submit the names of 50 of their most recent customers to take part in a customer satisfaction survey. The survey was conducted by Guild Quality an independent, nationally recognized surveyor; that specializes in surveying the customers of builder’s and remodelers. After compiling all of the results it was determined that Boardwalk Design had the highest customer service ranking of all the Big 50 finalists. Of those customers that responded 100% said they would recommend Boardwalk Design to their friends, which is evident by the fact that almost 75% of their customers are either referrals or past customers.
  • Boardwalk received a First Place Award in the Outdoor Living Category in 2002, from Qualified Remodeler Magazine, a national magazine for remodelers.
