The DriForce team did a phenomenal job. Basement was completely wrecked by a sump pump failure and mold everywhere. The basement is completely dry now. All the mold is gone and the space was left as clean and tidy as can be. Much appreciated team.
Melanie and David GillCustomer
I refer many contractors. When it comes to Flood/fire/windstorm OR any related insurance claim, I ALWAYS refer DriForce. They are very responsive, detailed and always strive to satisfy the customer. Extremely good company.
DriForce did a great job on a full basement renovation following water damage. They were extremely professional. Jim showed up at our house less than an hour after we called to assess the damage and begin the dry out. Graham did a wonderful job scheduling the many subcontractors and kept the project moving quickly. He was extremely responsive. He also was a huge help dealing with our insurance company. The carpenters, Dan and Beau, do top notch work. They were always very professional and had great attention to detail. Overall, I was EXTREMELY happy with the process and the end product.
Driforce is the best Restoration company I’ve ever used. In the past I have used other companies and 4 years ago I had a huge flood in my basement and was recommended to use DriForce Restoration. I was so pleased with them that when I recently needed some work done I called them again. Nick Fritz is the guy I trusted and he came through as always. The work men they hire are top notch. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone.
I have used DriForce on 2 projects and the results have been excellent. Both times because of water damage. They arrived immediately to begin the dry out process and the repair work began promptly after that. The workmanship in my kitchen was top notch and everything turned out beautifully. If there were any issues Steve Schamehorn was on top of them in a timely matter.
