Paul Davis Restoration is a single-source provider of restoration contracting services for the property insurance industry.

For more than 37 years, Paul Davis Restoration's combination of craftsmanship and care has helped families and businesses overcome the devastating setbacks inflicted by fire, flood and wind.

As one of the nation's largest full-service mitigation, restoration and reconstruction networks, Paul Davis Restoration is backed by a network of more than 200 franchise offices coast to coast.

Paul Davis Restoration was founded in 1966 as a one-man property insurance restoration company in Jacksonville, Florida. Paul Davis recognized that insurers were tired of dealing with contractors who were quick to take advantage of both the homeowner and the insurance company.

Paul's business strategy was unusual because he chose to represent the insurer's interests by providing good workmanship to property owners, fair compensation to tradespeople and fair profits to contractors - all within a consistent pricing structure.

His franchise concept was realized in 1970 with the opening of the Orlando territory - and the introduction of a democratic franchise council structure. This structure provides an innovative "partnership" approach which requires that the franchisor and a majority of the franchise operators must agree on major program changes to the operations manual before they can be implemented.

Growth was steady but slow until 1982 when Paul computerized his integrated business format, including standardized estimating and job-cost systems.

In 1986, he introduced Completion Services, Inc. (CSI). As an independent corporation funded by the franchisees, CSI guarantees all jobs are completed and all warranty work is performed.

Today, Paul Davis Restoration has grown to more than 210 operating territories throughout the United States.
