Residential/commercial remediation and restoration services

The worst thing that can happen is the destruction of your home or business. Your memories, your inventory, and the loss of things you may never get back can be devastating. Some things can be replaced, while others can’t.

PorterHouse Contracting will take care of the hard stuff like inspections, emergency cleanups, water removal, repair, and talking with your insurance provider. We will do everything we can to ease the stressful repair process.

If the project is sensitive and involves physical hazards, such as sickness or health-related impairments, we will use an Industrial Hygienist (IH).

PorterHouse uses thermal imaging technology to locate a burst pipe, leak, or areas of water damage.
