How to Choose a Water Damage Restoration Company

dollar signChoosing a company to help restore a part of your life is never an easy task. This is a decision that should not be taken lightly.

There are several things that should be taken into consideration when deciding on what company to go with.

Here is what we recommend:

1. Certified

First and foremost, this is important. Certifications means that they have taken the proper steps and training to make sure that they understand the process and procedure of handing a sensitive situation like water damage.

2. Referrals

If you have a referral about a company this can be priceless. You have first hand information that this company has not hurt a previous close friend or family member.

Additionally, if the company knows that you are coming at them with a referral they are more opportune to make sure you are taken care of with the fullest extent.

3. Reviews

If you don’t know of anyone that can give your a personal recommendation google is your next step.  Read up on reviews. These are very helpful in determining if a certain company has had shortcomings and how bad.

4. Insurance Approved

Make sure you run the name of the company by your insurer. You don’t want to start a project only to find out that your insurance will not cover the company’s bill for one reason or another.

5. Price

Obviously this is a huge consideration. A hefty job like a water damage project comes with no easy price tag. This could be a make or break consideration if the bill comes in too high.

On the other hand, don’t go with just the cheapest option either. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. Getting the cheapest company may also result in the cheapest job done.


No what what you decide the bottom line is to do your research. Make sure you are well informed about what the entire job entails from start to finish. You don’t want any unexpected surprises when you are dealing with a water damage issue.
