Thank goodness for Kelmann Restoration! When we had a terrible fire at our house a few years ago Kelmann worked with us, from start to finish, to restore our house to a better-than-ever condition!

Over the past few years, I have had the opportunity to work with Kelmann Restoration on multiple occasions. Each and every Kelmann associate that I have worked with has shown me and my residents nothing but the utmost professionalism and courtesy.

Great company to work with. Bill Hutchinson was our contact. Great guy. Answered emails and his phone promptly. Followed up with us to make sure everything was done to our satisfaction. Great experience.

The Kelmann team were fabulous. When you experience a property loss / damage you are totally in the hands of whomever you choose to help you. We were so fortunate that Kelmann was the company that worked with us.
