Water and Fire Damage Restoration

If you have suffered a loss to do Water or Fire Damage we will work with your Insurance Company and restore your home properly with amazing attention to the detail that you deserve.

The two most common types of damage on home that require a insurance claim are Water and Fire.   If we are dealing with a water damage there can be many culprits: burst pipes, ice dams on your roof in the winter, flooding from rain or ground water, a window left open while you were on vacation, a faucet left on or dripping causing a sink to over flow.  A fire loss can come from a electrical problem or lighting also known as a ‘Act of god”.  If the fire is at a rental property the fire can be started by one of their tenants or mother nature.  These types of damage can be significant and we are experienced in dealing with them.

We take our clients rights seriously. When someone suffers damage at their home and they need to file an insurance claim , we are there to file claims on your behalf.  Many people don't realize it’s their right to choose their own contractor.  We use the same computer program that Insurance Companies use. We are often able to get more money for our clients for the restoration of their home.  It is in every insurance contract that when suffering a loss it is your right to have your home restored to new condition using comparable materials and when in the event those materials are no longer available , you are entitled to upgrades.
