Client's Testimonial

Professional, helpful, and reassuring

We called California State Restoration about a water leak in our upstairs bathroom and a crew showed up that same night to extract the water and set up drying equipment.

They were professional, helpful, and reassuring. They took the time to explain what needed to be done and why, then walked me through the estimate for the clean up and repairs step by step.

Also worked with my insurance no problem. If anything ever happens again I'm definitely calling these guys.
