Sometimes, the worst experiences can happen when we least expect them. Many problems can hit a home at any moment, whether it be a water damage in the basement, mold found in the kitchen or damage from a severe storm. However, these dreadful experiences can be worse than we imagine when natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, snowstorms, or wildfires hit and cause catastrophic damage to homes within a few minutes.
After a disaster – small or large – leaves your home damaged, it can be hard to know how to move forward. Unlike the many contracting companies that don’t have experience dealing with insurance companies, Smith & Son’s Contracting knows exactly what to do. We’ve been in business for over 31 years, and are well-known in the industry for our compassionate, quality service, superior craftsmanship, and industry-leading technology that helps us give our customers fair, honest and exact estimates. We also have a 24/7 emergency phone line, so whenever disaster strikes, you’ll know who to call.

Water Damage Restoration
Water damage can happen at any time, and whether it happens slowly with water spots or instantaneous with flooding, water damage often results in at least some loss of property. If you come home to water damage, give us a call at any time of day so our trained professionals can remove the water and assist in restoring your property back to normal.
Our water damage restoration service includes water removal, a thorough inspection of the area, industry-leading estimates, drying, all necessary repair work, expert navigation of your insurance policy and its benefits, and more. If the water damage was caused by a problem within your home and not by nature, we will help fix the problems that caused the flooding. Whether your water damage comes from a leaky pipe, basement flooding, broken appliances or a severe storm or hurricane, we will be there to leave you feeling secure and safe in your home.
Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration
A fire in your home is one of the worst possible disasters that can happen, leaving your home damaged and possibly ruined. After the fire has been put out and the smoke has cleared, you may have a damaged residential or commercial property and no clue what to do next. By calling our emergency line, we will get to you as soon as possible to start restoring what is left of the property.
Most people don’t think about where all the water goes once the firefighters leave after putting out the fire, and the answer is that it stays on your property. When we arrive on your property, we provide specialized fire and smoke damage restoration services to save as much of your property as possible. We will extract and dry the water from your home to examine the full extent of the damage, start the estimation process, and save the integrity of your structure from any further damage. We also want to ensure that you and your property are safe, so we will complete fire board up services to close any open areas in order to protect from any more damage or security issues.
After the area is secure and dry, we will then clean by removing all smoke, soot and leftover debris from your home or commercial building. After we clean the rooms, Smith & Son’s will then complete restoration services so your property will look as it did before the fire. Our services can include anything from reconstructing entire rooms and walls to fixing small areas wherever needed. By working closely with your insurance company, we always get all that is needed to rebuild or restore your property.
Wind & Storm Damage Restoration
Windstorms, thunderstorms, and tornados can cause extreme damages to homes, leaving whole neighborhoods devastated with destroyed properties. At Smith & Son’s Contracting, our experience means that we know exactly what to do to ensure your property is in the best hands after a disastrous storm.
Storms are especially dangerous to homeowners, as strong winds can knock over trees or electrical poles onto roofs and through windows. In the aftermath of any storm, our primary goal is to save as much of your property as possible by restoring your home to its previous condition with compassion, skill, and speed. Our wind and storm damage restoration can include floor restoration services, roof repairs or replacements, window and door repairs or replacements, and any other structural repairs needed.
Mold Remediation Cleanup
No matter how clean you may think your house is, any home can have mold if there is a moisture problem. Humidity and rain are main factors for moisture problems within homes, as well as leaking pipes, leaks in roofs, and poor ventilation. Since mold spores exist in nature and develop with moisture, it can be difficult to keep mold out of your house entirely. If you need mold remediation cleanup, our services include the following: an inspection to find where the moisture is coming from, containment of the mold, filtration to remove mold spores from the air, removing mold growth from affected areas, cleaning any materials that could be harboring mold spores, and completing any restoration work as needed.
The mold may be a bigger concern than some may think, as it could lead to not only property damage but also health problems for everyone exposed to it. It can cause respiratory issues and even lung infections, so as soon as mold is spotted remember to call us at Smith & Son’s to be sure your home is mold-free and safe for your whole family.
