Phoenix Awards

Phoenix Awards

Since the dawn of history, fires and floods have wreaked destruction on the homes, possessions, and lives of human beings. Even today, with all our modern advances, natural disasters still destroy our most precious possessions. The people who restore damaged property have a unique role in a setting of personal tragedy and stress; they strive to restore the damaged property in the most effective way possible. Professional restorers respond to these crises every day, performing an essential human service.

In order to recognize conspicuously high achievement in the area of disaster restoration, the Restoration Industry Association has established the RIA Phoenix Awards for Innovation in Restoration and Reconstruction. Phoenix Award recipients will be invited to present and be recognized at RIA's International Restoration Convention + Industry Expo. In addition to earning the respect of fellow RIA members, this award provides a vehicle for winners, challengers, and the entire RIA membership to achieve recognition in the media and in the insurance industry for their contributions.
