The professionals from Kelman did an absolutely perfect jog. Timely, responsive, and in fact, found damage of which we were unaware. Our patio is actually better than new. If you have a choice, go with Kelman!

We experienced significant flooding when the water line came off of the dishwasher inlet. Our insurance company contracted with Kelmann Restoration at 2:00 am - even though we were a 1000 miles from home. Kelmann had a person on-site by 4:30 am to start remediation of the water and had a full crew on-site by 6:30 am. Amanda Miess was our assigned Project Manager and she did an excellent job keeping us informed of all of the steps in the remediation process. Our crew over the next few days was professional and took great care not to damage any of our belongings and cleaned up the condo at the end of each work day. Many thanks to Uziel, Klajdi, Ricardo, Jaylin, Jose A and Nancy for all of your hard work.

A+ 5 STAR! You will be in great hands if you choose Kelmann Restoration and I highly recommend them. We had a pipe failure in the main living area of our home and Brian Boegel immediately jumped to action. Brian is professional, kind, and extremely knowledgeable. The estimate was highly detailed all aspects of the process were handled right down to working with the insurance company. Austin, was our PM and he orchestrated the project with precision ensuring every detail was tended to and on time. We are so happy to be back in our home and can't express enough how appreciative we are. The entire team is incredibly talented and thanks to Mindy for coordinating all of this. A special thanks to Jay for his expert craftsmanship on the custom beam work, Scott for his carpentry skills, and Manny and Damien for their excellent and detailed finish work and painting. Thank you all very much for making our house home again!

Kelmann Restoration was recommended by my Insurance company for restoring my kitchen after water damage. Randy did a good job of painting the 2 walls and door frames and prepped the cabinets for painting. Joe was here for the past week and completed the sanding of cabinet doors and frames, painted all of them, put the doors back on and the new knobs, along with touch ups needed. Joe went above and beyond. All staff were very prompt and always arrived between 7:30 and 8:00 am. The flooring will be installed on 11/23/20. The wallpaper I selected is on backorder, so they will be back to complete that when it is avilable. I would definitely recommend this company.1/14/21 - my wall paper came in last week and Mike was out the past 2 days getting it installed and completed any finishing touches. He did a great job and I can't see any of the seams! Very conscientious. Would definitely recommend these folks.Tom Bailey was the project manager and stayed on top of everything! Following up on the wallpaper and letting me know once it was in to schedule the work.Great job guys!

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. With Lloyd Bertram as the project manager, I was so impressed by him and his team throughout every step of the process. Along with the outstanding job the team did, Lloyd went above and beyond keeping us informed, working with our schedule, and providing high quality work. I appreciated the time he spent, ensuring we were comfortable with all aspects of the restoration. The results were excellent. Every person I dealt with at Kelmann was professional, accommodating and helpful. I would highly recommend Kelmann Restoration!Daniel P

Kelmann rebuilt our garage after a car ran into it. The work was done significantly faster than I was told it would be done and the quality was great. Adam B was our project manager and would highly recommend. We were out of state when the damage occurred and during reconstruction and received pictures every step of the way.

My husband Jeff & I are very happy with the work Kelmann did on our basement. Back in May of this year our basement flooded. Our insurance (USAA) suggested we use Kelmann for the water cleanup. They did such a great job with cleanup that we decided to stick with them for the remodeling of our recreation room. Brandon Munguia was our estimator. He was very professional and took the time to listen to our ideas on what we wanted. Adam Buss was our project manager. We are very happy with the way Adam made sure everything was done correctly and in a timely and professional manner. He went above and beyond our expectations and we are very pleased with everything he and his crew were able to accomplish. I would highly recommend this company for any type of work that they do!

We had a problem with our garage being significantly damaged due to an auto accident. The Kelmann team was efficient and excellent from the start of the project until the end of the project. I would specifically like to thank and recommend our project manager Austin. He was professional, dedicated, responsive, respectful, flexible, communicative, and never failed to respond when we needed additional help. Furthermore, he reached out to us almost daily to keep us informed how our project was developing. Thus, my family and I had peace of mind throughout the entirety of this project. I would highly recommend Austin and Kelmann Restoration.

We had a tree fall on our sunroom during a storm. We decided on Kelmann to do the work for us. We had the most amazing experience! Our Project Lead was Austin who communicated with us every day on next steps and the progress that had been made. Austin was so professional, nice, and helpful. He had amazing contractors come in to do the work. I am so thankful for such a great experience after such unfortunate event. I highly, highly, recommend using them.

Our insurance company (USAA) has Kelmann as their top rated vendor in the Southeastern Wisconsin area for a reason - they are exceptional. We are only through phase 1 of a project, and have only had the water mitigation team out to the house to demo all of the water damaged walls, floors, and ceilings before the construction team comes out to fix everything - the experience so far has been great! The team helping us is led by Amanda, who is doing an awesome job at customer service, keeping us informed of everything going on, and just staying on top of the whole project - the 2 man team that was here doing the demo yesterday, Uziel and Javar were both excellent, worked very fast, both were very polite and complete professionals, they cleaned up extensively after the job was complete and worked to a really high standard. I will continue to update as the project progresses - but I am really happy so far!! Great job Kelmann!!

We first contacted Kelmann at the recommendation of a family member when we had water damage in our finished basement. James, our mitigation manager, was quick to come assess the damage and got his team of Jhonatan and Marc out with equipment to take care of drying out our basement. James was hands-on through the entire mitigation project, stopping by multiple times to take moisture readings and make sure we were making progress in the right direction. From there, it was a seamless transition to our estimator, Bill G., who came to our home, explained the entire process for insurance with us. He was up front about the timeline and kept his word by working with our insurance company to ensure we'd have what we needed to restore our basement. Bill G. then handed our project over to our construction project manager, Lloyd, who saw our project to beautiful completion. Lloyd was professional in his communication and was also hands-on with our project, checking in on all work and contractors as the work was happening. He was quick to address any questions we had and always worked to make sure we were pleased with the work being performed. Ultimately, Kelmann Restoration did a beautiful job restoring our basement to an even better condition than it was pre-water damage. Al and Syville were our painters and were efficient with the task. I think what most impressed me about Kelmann was their willingness to continually make sure we were satisfied with the outcome of the project. We are very grateful for their hard work and will be referring all friends and family to them should the need arise for their service. Thank you!

We used Kelmann Restoration as a part of an approved contractor through our insurance after we suffered water damage inside our home. James Nash was the assigned project manager to the damage and mold remediation, and he was always on time and professional. The work that James and his crew (Uziel P, Greg G, Javar T) performed was excellent and they left their work areas clean. The team was always on time and James had all the answers I needed throughout the entire process. His communication was very clear and the quality of service they provided speaks for itself.I would recommend utilizing Kelmann Restoration for any remediation needs.

The staff immediately addressed our needs and got to work. Within the first few days we had all our items moved out of the way, our damages cleaned up and progress towards getting things back to normal. Jose and Mark spent the day making sure that our damaged basement was cleaned up, and certainly took our family into consideration, doing more than I even expected they would. We are looking forward to seeing the rest of the amazing work they do on our project!

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. They followed up throughout the entire project. In addition, it was great to learn that they were a "Preferred" Vendor from our Insurance company.Brian, James, Jonathan, Uziel and Armoni were all friendly and helpful. Great Team!! Thanks Kelmann.

We are so appreciative of Kelmann Restoration! Everyone at every step of the way has been helpful, professional, efficient, and friendly. Jennifer regularly kept us in the loop as far as timing, Jason clearly explained the process to us and thoroughly assessed the damage, and Marc and Greg quickly and professionally set up the dehumidifiers and driers without damaging our walls or floors. So very thankful that they were free to help us with our cleanup process!

After a devastating flood/ sewage backup in our partially finished basement (about a foot of sewage water), RotoRooter recommended Kelmann’s for clean up and restoration. So happy we called!Within an hour of calling, Todd was out to assess the damage and laid out exactly what they could do for us. The matter was handled with urgency and sensitivity. They also handle everything with your insurance company mitigation claim, which is a huge relief after a traumatic experience like this.In summary:COVID SAFTEY- Our flood occurred just as Covid19 ramped up & during a nationwide debate over wearing masks. Happy to say the Kelmann team was responsibly cognizant of masking up each time upon entering our home.CLEAN UP- Within the first week, everything was cleaned up, sanitized and organized. It was amazing! And the horrible smell was finally gone!! Jhonatan, Armani, Marc, Jose and Greg were all great in the cleanup and loss inventory process.INSURANCE CLAIM- During/ after clean up, our Estimator, Brandon helped write up and submit the mitigation/ loss claims for insurance. This made things very smooth. Then Dan and his team came out to assess and get the Restoration process started.RESTORATION- From the drywall to flooring, electrical, carpentry and painting—everything was great. All contractors were professional, timely and friendly. Our painter, Manny, went above and beyond in all 3 areas that needed painting. I truly appreciate his detailed work!Also, our CA/ furnace was somehow knocked into in a weird position causing an AC condensation leak all over. Even though the cause was undetermined, Brandon went ahead and had his team, and the HAVC team, back out to look at it. They shifted it back straight, fixed the leak and our AC is working better than before!The entire Kelmann’s team is extremely professional, knowledgeable, transparent and responsive any time of day (text/call/email), including Sarah in billing! I would definitely recommend Kelmann’s in future for any restoration/ mitigation needs.

It's just day one of the mitigation after our finished basement flooded. Jonathan and Armani, took up all the wood trim and carpeting. There are a lot of fans and dehumidifiers. They found some cash and came and told me right away, as they didn't want to touch it. I was blown away with their honesty. I am more than impressed. I have worked with many contractors and I don't feel confident that many of the others would have reacted this way. I can't say enough good things about Jonathan and Armani!!!!! I hope their supervisors see this review and they are acknowledged for their honesty!

Words can not express how impressed I am by Kelmann Restoration! If I could give more than 5 stars I most definitely would! We had a water damage issue in our bathroom and we needed it to be fixed as soon as possible. Bill came out right away to assess the damage and got all info to our insurance agent asap so work could begin promptly. Austin then came out to go over everything that needed to be done. He was very thorough at explaining everything that was going to happen and when it would happen. He answered every question I had, which was a lot, with a smile on his face! If I needed anything or just had questions Austin always answered his phone or immediately called me back. We also had the privilege of working with Adam! He basically ripped everything out and installed everything new from floor to ceiling. We couldn't be more happy with our beautiful new tile work and bathroom! 🙂 Adam truly is an artist! Everyone we worked with at Kelmann was more than wonderful!!! Their professionalism mixed with kindness is a perfect combination! We definitely recommend using Kelmann for any needs you may need addressed!

Our home had a fire in the basement due to a faulty dehumidifier. We called Kelmann Restoration the next morning and they were there within the hour. They were very professional and compassionate--great listeners. They were very patient with us and responded with awareness and empathy regarding how these situations effect people. There was also the additional challenge of this overwhelming situation occurring during the Covid-19 restrictions. The team of Doug, Tammy, Marcella, Nancy, Louis and Louis were excellent at organizing and packing up the contents of our house. They were so organized. Our possessions were organized and boxed by room and pictures provided of the contents so you could track sentimental items or things you needed sooner. They were awesome at recognizing valuable or sentimental things and they took extremely good care of them. Anything we wanted, they were able to locate for us. They were very responsive to our particular needs and requests. Everyone we met was friendly and compassionate. They communicate well and are prompt at responding to requests or questions. We highly recommend them.

Had a flat roof leak and Kelmann Restoration completed the building portion of the job(mold, rot and water soaked) I have hired contractors two other times in my life which is why I do projects myself. I did not want to deal with this roof and building rot mold etc.Brian Boegal was the estimator and he was straight forward and gave me the scoop. He was very responsive to our needs as well. Excellent to work with and a pleasure to just chat with as well.The carpenters, Adam and Kyle. Two great workers. Respectful to us and our property. They too were pleasant to discuss the plan with and very reliable and dedicated to a job well done. Clean up of mess looked like they were never here.Last but not least the PM, Austin Berzinski, can’t say enough about him. He was very dedicated to communicating with us before the project started during and as well as after.Even though his job is done he is communicating with the roofing contractor on our behalf to ensure that turns out well too.My only mistake in hiring Kelmann is, I DID NOT HIRE THEM TO MANAGE THE ROOF REPAIR TOO!! Darn!Great job Kelmann see you at the golf outing!!

As CEO of Easterseals SE, a non-profit serving those with disabilities, we are always in the need of time, talent and resources of others. To that end, Tom Kelly and his team voluntarily "stepped up to the plate" to support our organization and donate/replace/install new windows at our Waukesha Adult Day Services (ADS) location. The windows were literally falling apart and would not even be touched by the cleaners! Our ADS locations are the "home away from home" for our clients and the Kelmann team treated the work as if it were their homes! Many thanks to Dan Oldenburg, who estimated the job, and Nic Kender, the project manager. Every time I visited the location, the team were all smiles and glad to help. I can't say enough good things about Scott Rudolph, Jacob Zarcone, Manny Cerda, Jay Gruber, Kyle Wilm, Frank Gove and Sara Conrad - all terrific! On a side note, I personally had Kelmann handle my home after a lightning strike...I'd recommend Kelmann Restoration to anyone. Honest, credible, hard working and dedicated to their clients. Thank you Tom Kelly and team!Pete Engel, President/CEO at Easterseals SE Wisconsin

Kelmann Restoration helped restore my place after a flood. They exceeded my expectations: great communicators, very caring, good listeners, reliable on follow-up and the work was done well with excellent results. Austin, the project manager was on top of it all. Bill and Brian were thorough and helpful whenever I had a question or request. Everyone else I worked with or spoke to were courteous and helpful too. The work done by Adam and Jack and the others was done well and all worked hard to make it come out beautifully. I highly recommend this company.

We've been working with Kelmann since mid November 2019.In the beginning with our first crew assigned to us, it was a bit bumpy. Adam Nelson Kelmann Restorations general manager, was a life saver.He's reliable, dependable, and he delivers on his promises!Our second crew that was sent to us, AMAZING!!!Project manager Dan Z, is exactly what you'd expect from a reputable company, he's dependable, hardworking, reliable, and very detailed oriented!Dan Z, oversees an amazing crew!Dale ( carpenter) has true craftsmanship skills, and it shows, not only in his work but he's very professional. He puts in over 11 hours a day, and is so hardworking, his dedication, to his job, is very admirable, and it shines through in our kitchen remodel.Scott K, and Joe S at were at our home too, alongside Dale, and both of those professionals, are just as dedicated. Everyone of these workers, show up early, stays late, cleans up, and they put a long, hard day of work in.These are the workers, that take tremendous pride, in doing fine craftsmanship.This was grueling work for these guys, and they did it with a smile and a professional attuide!Joe S.he was our painter, he along with this ENTIRE crew, go the extra mile, instead of just painting the section, Joe painted a serious of rooms, so it would match. Joe S, does remarkable drywall work too.Kelmann Restoration, pat this crew on the back, give them some we'll deserved, recognition, this is your A+ crew!!!! A huge thank you, to Adam Nelson, and this amazing crew. Your company was a shining star, in a dark time for our family!We'll walk away, being able to highly recommend, Kelmann Restoration

I was unsure if a mold issue in my basement could be done DIY or if it required a professional service. Called Kelmann and they quickly pointed me in the direction of option I could do on my own. I greatly appreciate the integrity and transparency of this business, and if I have a larger issue will be sure to come back for their guidance!
