John Paoletti, Founder of Choice Remodeling and Restoration, Inc., the Mid-Atlantic Region’s premier storm restoration company, tapped Steve Dietz to be president. Paoletti brought his storm restoration business to Delaware in 2007. In a year when many of its competitors struggled to survive, Paoletti humbly stated that Choice achieved 20% growth in 2020. He credits this growth to the innovative digital strategies that he and Dietz created and implemented to adapt and thrive during last year’s unprecedented economic climate.
• The roofing industry is expected to reach $20 billion in 2021.
• NOAA reported 12 named storms (hurricanes) hit the continental U.S. in 2020.
• 2020 is the sixth year in a row the United States has seen 10 or more billion-dollar weather-related disasters.
• 3D cameras to drones to communication tools aid better customer experience.
A spike in demand for Choice’s expertise in handling commercial and residential storm restoration insurance claims spurred the opening of its second office in Eagleville, PA, this past fall.
Speaking of the people at Choice, Dietz stated, “The fact that we train our team to know what the others don’t, makes Choice unique. We are in a state of constant learning as policyholders often remain naive as to how unlevel the playing field is once they file a homeowner or commercial property claim. What we knew and how we did business just last year is obsolete. Innovation is the key to smarter and more efficient ways to better serve our top clients. Besides, we have a whole lot of fun doing it!”
“Though award-winning GAF Certified Master Elite roofing specialists,” Dietz says, “Choice’s real area of expertise lies in its ability to keep the insurance industry honest. Working with a trusted general contractor, who is HAAG Certified, is crucial to winning what is often referred to in the industry as the claim game. This isn’t a game of checkers. This is chess!”
Choice is poised to exceed $12 million in fiscal 2021 Dietz says. “Storm season is upon us. Choice is actively hiring another 25 Choice Project Consultants and training crews in our Choice Five Star Installation Process. Our team is galvanized, our mission is clear, our time is now.“
Dietz creates a successful, charitable, and diverse corporate culture that makes Choice Remodeling and Restoration worthy of being one of Delaware’s Top 10 Best Places to Work. This is a guiding principle of The Choice Way. Dietz is eager to earn accolades from the Philadelphia Business Journal, the prestigious Reader’s Choice Award for ‘Best Storm Restoration Company” from Delaware Today, and recognition from The Delaware Business Times.
