Have you ever walked into a store or business and have seen buckets placed under a roof leak? Or maybe you have experienced a minor leak yourself. Perhaps you have a tub that was not placed properly, or a few shingles on your roof that allowed some sneaky water to drip through. Whatever it may […]
The building industry (and homeowners) learned some valuable lessons from Hurricane Andrew in 1992, Katrina in 2005 and Sandy in 2012. After each hurricane ravaged the coast, each state adopted stricter building codes requiring new or replacement garage doors to be structurally reinforced to withstand higher wind load requirements. Now codes require the doors have […]

Charlotte has such fascinating stories; we can experience history every day– block by block. When the city was founded back in 1768, a large group of colonists, loyal to the British Crown, decided to settle in Charlotte. The intersection of two Native American trading paths is now the intersection of Trade and Tryon in Uptown. […]
Water follows the path of least resistance as gravity pulls it downhill. Unfortunately, when excess water accumulates in the bottom floor of your home, your home and possessions can be damaged or destroyed. Often, it is a result of outside water falling as rain or snow that makes its way inside. As little as 1 […]

With the beauty of the ocean comes massive rainstorms, flooding, and hurricanes that can destroy your Charlotte home. […]
Restoration 1, in my experience, is a terrific company! An old dishwasher was, I thought, the cause of a flood of water on the kitchen floor, so I bought a new appliance. The culprit turned out to be a mouse who’d bitten a hole in the outflow tube! To repair the damage to the flooring underneath I was referred to a company who gave me a huge estimate (which they refused to reduce), so I looked online and, thank goodness, decided on Restoration 1. They came the next day, studied the situation, gave me a reasonable assessment saving me several hundred dollars, and began the drying and repair work, ending with much nicer flooring. They were professional, were on time, nice to deal with, and I highly recommend them.

Had a burst pipe in the attic that leaked into a couple bedrooms, the hallway and into part of the kitchen and living room. When I called Todd at Restoration 1 he answered the phone promptly, was very polite and professional, and answered all my questions. It was a Sunday and he said he’d be there in about 90min but made it in closer to an hour. He and a co-worker worked until nearly 10pm on Sun night to take care of the worst of the water. He came back daily for several days to some minor final clean up and to check the progress of the fans and dry out of our house. He was always very professional and very easy to work with. He contacted our insurance and dealt directly with them for the billing. The only downside is that they only do the cleaning/drying…not the repairs. However, if I had water damage in the future I would not hesitate to use them again.
