Kelmann in the Community

“Isn’t it nice to know you can always count on family?” It’s our corporate mission in a nutshell. Kelmann Restoration is a family, and we treat everyone else like family, too. It’s our approach to ethics, a take on the famous Golden Rule, and a way of approaching how we work and run our business. When disaster strikes, you need to count on someone. You can count on family, and you can count on Kelmann.

The Kelmann Cares Foundation, founded in 2019, seeks to lift up organizations, programs and individuals that embody this mission. We empower those who are serving local families, improving our communities and supporting those who protect us. We believe that by impacting local families, we may impact communities, our nation and the world.


The Kelmann Cares Foundation transforms the lives of families, communities and first responders in southeastern Wisconsin.


The Kelmann Cares Foundation puts southeastern Wisconsin families first by creating, identifying and supporting projects and organizations that exist to:

  1. positively impact family life;
  2. better the communities in which we live and work; and
  3. support and honor the men and women who protect our families and communities.


We believe in giving back.

Our employees volunteer their time and talents with many organizations throughout the year, including:

Kelmann also works with several area schools, giving interns tangible job skills and supplying materials and expertise to high school skilled trade programs. We are also proud to contribute to local interests and non-profit organizations thanks to our participation in various professional and industry organizations.

Kelmann is a trusted voice on both local and national stages. Hundreds of Wisconsin insurance professionals have attended our Fire and Water Loss Seminars throughout the years. We frequently appear as expert guests on radio and television programs discussing remodeling, renovation and safety – as well as our mission to put family first and work with a spirit of service. We have been invited to participate in national roundtable discussions about issues and solutions in the disaster recovery and property renovation industries.

Giving back begins with supporting the families of our 65 employees. Kelmann Restoration is committed to investing not only in our employees, but in their families, children and communities. This extends to our business partners, subcontractors and clients.

I was very pleased with the service and quality of work provided by Kelmann on my recent laundry room remodeling project… I would definitely recommend Kelmann for their quality workmanship, service and personnel.

A sewer backup in my house happened just before Christmas. Though the timing couldn’t have been more inopportune, working with Kelmann lifted so much stress away.

It was a pleasure to work with our project manager Jon Thorsen and his whole crew. They gave us a beautiful kitchen. We are very happy with the results.

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!
