Replacement of a board that had snapped due to the weight of a swing.


We got a new ride! We can now easily haul drywall and other materials. This beauty came in handy when we went to Marshalltown to tarp and board-up roofs from the tornado.

I had a gentleman call me on October 5th and explain he had some water damage that affected his basement, he went on to say that he and his fiance were leaving on the 15th for their destination wedding. They had several family members returning with them on the 21st and was looking to see if we could help them so they did not return to torn up home. We worked with Servpro to make sure that were able to begin recon as soon as they were done with the demo and drying. Reconstruction was started and completed while they were in Florida, so when they return on the 21st their home was finished.
