Our Process

Your dependable partner in disaster recovery.

Since 1973, Kelmann Restoration has been the greater Milwaukee area’s choice for expert, efficient restoration services for commercial, residential and historic properties.

Disasters don’t care what time of day it is. Neither do we. Our responders are ready at a moment’s notice. We’ll arrive quickly and work with professionalism and efficiency to restore your property back to its original state.

Here’s how we work together:

  1. When disaster strikes, keep calm and call Kelmann.
  2. You’ll talk on the phone with a Kelmann First Responder, who will get some basic information from you. Together, we will schedule a time for a Kelmann team member to visit your property.
  3. You will receive an email introducing you to your assigned team member and giving you an overview of our services.
  4. Once we meet you on-site, we’ll evaluate your project, provide emergency mitigation if necessary. We will talk with you about our process and how we can help work with your insurance company.
  5. We’ll head to the drawing board and create a project scope and estimate for your review. We will answer your questions and come up with a plan and timeline.
  6. If the estimate is approved, a contract is signed and the Kelmann team gets to work!

Having a truck run into the front of my house was an unexpected event to say the least. I could not have been happier with the service Kelmann Restoration provided. I would highly recommend Kelmann Restoration!

I cannot say enough good things about this company. From start to finish, they were professional, courteous, and compassionate. They worked well with my insurance company and provided me with a finished product that far exceeded my expectations. I look forward to working with them in the near future.

The entire team at Kelmann was extremely professional, responsive and truly provided the peace of mind we were looking for after we found our master bathroom and basement flooded. They not only responded right away, but gave us the peace of mind that everything would be resolved.

William G.

Our insurance company (USAA) has Kelmann as their top-rated vendor in the Southeastern Wisconsin area for a reason – they are exceptional. We are through phase 1 of a project and the experience so far has been great!
