The fastest-growing restoration franchise is emerging as the nation’s premier brand for restoration services
The property damage restoration industry has grown at an unprecedented rate in the past several years to become the $210 billion industry that it is today. The reason for this growth is simple: for as long as people choose to own homes and properties, severe weather and aging infrastructure will cause damage to homes and properties. Proof of the growth of restoration industry at-large is evident in the tremendous growth of Restoration 1, which is on pace to have 500 locations open in the next few years.
Restoration 1 is a trusted name in the home and commercial property restoration service industry. Since 2008, we’ve helped thousands of home and property owners return safely to their homes and properties after disaster strikes. Whether it’s mitigating water, fire and smoke damage, or removal and remediation of dangerous mold, Restoration 1 is the name customers turn to for help in getting back into their homes and commercial properties.
More home and property owners need the services that Restoration 1 provides than ever before. An analysis published by Architectural Digest reveals that more coastal homes are at risk for storm and flooding damage as a result of climate change, and that this threat is going to continue well into the future. But the expected increase in property damage isn’t limited to the home and properties near the ocean, in recent years, damage caused by wildfires continues to make headlines across the nation as communities from Tennessee to Los Angeles suffer billions of dollars in property damage.
While tragic for the home and property owners who face these challenges, Restoration 1 is becoming the brand they choose to restore their homes and properties to their former glory. Not only do we utilize the most advanced technology to combat water, mold, smoke and fire damage, we also specialize in exceptional customer service that is based on empathy, trust and doing the job right the first time.
“We help our customers throughout the process, so as to cause the least amount of disruption in their life,” says Gary Findley, CEO of Restoration 1, in an interview with Franchising. “Customers are amazed at how quickly and thoroughly we work in order to get their properties back to their pre-damaged state. We only use high-quality materials and operate above code requirements so that our customers can relax, knowing that their properties are receiving the best restoration services available.”
This commitment to ensuring that customers receive a positive experience and are back in their homes as quickly as possible is why Franchising called our level of professionalism: “The Restoration 1 Difference.”
Unlike other brands who may cut corners or use untrained people without the proper certifications, Restoration 1 only sends experts who are fully trained and certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) to our customers homes. Our 24/7 availability and our commitment to understanding our customers in their time of need are the reasons Restoration 1 is growing while our competition is either completely out of territory or lacks the ability to expand.
In 2016, Restoration 1 added 75 new franchise units, prompting Entrepreneur magazine to name us the No. 96 best franchise investment on their annual Franchise 500 list in 2017, up an unprecedented 287 spots from the year before. Our growth is proof that need for a trustworthy, reliable brand for restoration services is bigger now than ever before, and Restoration 1 is going to keep growing alongside the booming industry for years to come.
“For as long as there are people living in homes with running water, there is going to be water damage,” Gary says. “It’s a problem that is unavoidable for home and property owners. Unfortunately, most home or property owners don’t realize there is a problem until it becomes a crisis. This is why the restoration industry is a recession-resistant business, because when a crisis occurs, it isn’t an option to have it fixed or not.”
