Fire, flood, water, hurricane, smoke, moving or vandalism, whatever the unfortunate circumstances may be, our company is capable of accessing a wide assortment of contents damage to determine the feasibility of restoration costs as opposed to replacement costs.  

We are mission oriented experienced professionals who have the ability to communicate well with others in order to provide you with a complete and accurate report that includes P.E.D, digital images, as well as written documentation. We do not "guestimate" restoration costs. We don't have to because we do the actual work. We seldom third party anything.

It could cost thousands of dollars to hire experts in varied specialties to go out to a claim, examine the nature and effects of damage, and provide a written report. Our firm can provide the same services for a fraction of the cost because we are experts with many specialties.

Operating costs are kept down because our shop and separate studio are located on our estate, as well as our high security climatized storage; this enables us to take on large loss claims while giving the claimant peace of mind.
