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!

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!
