Industry Overview

The Restoration Industry is a growing 60-Billion-Dollar industry driven by the increasing population and the increased frequency of catastrophic weather related events. In addition to increased demand for restoration services the insurance industry is consolidating. Most smaller regional insurance companies are being acquired by large national insurance providers who demand centralized automated progress reporting and superior customer service when one of their clients experiences an insurable loss.

These large insurance companies will only work with respected remediation companies like PAUL DAVIS to get their clients back to their normal lifestyles as quickly as possible. The remediation industry is highly fragmented with many regional and part time independent restoration companies that don’t have the electronic reporting infrastructure or field certifications that nation insurance providers are now demanding resulting in national insurance carries migrating away from using smaller independent restoration companies towards PAUL DAVIS franchisees.

Many industry competitors don’t have internal training or certification programs to stay current with the industry and thus deliver sub-standard service thereby creating a significant opportunity for PAUL DAVIS franchisees to increase their market share. PAUL DAVIS provides certified training programs to the insurance industry from our head office training facility equipped with a full size, “Flood House” where we can flood the house and demonstrate how our drying techniques and technology can restore to the house to pre-event status. Because of our innovative programs PAUL DAVIS franchisees are a respected category leader by the insurance industry in both Canada and the United States.
