Meet The Team

Jason S. Gardner and Darrin L. Wheat currently oversee American Restoration Insurance’s operations, work extensively with restoration contractors to develop their insurance programs, and represent their partner insurance companies as field underwriters, evaluating risks and collecting information.

Not only do both men have over 20 years combined experience in the industry, but they both carry the prestigious CIC (Certified Insurance Counselor) designation. A designation that is obtained through a series of comprehensive courses covering all aspects of insurance and takes up to five years to complete.

In addition to the CIC designation, Jason and Darrin are both IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certifcation) Certified. This gives them valuable knowledge and insight to the restoration industry other agents don’t have.


Where did their exclusive insurance program for restoration contractors come from?

Some years ago, both Jason and Darrin saw a number of market deficiencies for restoration contractors trying to obtain coverage for their companies. They observed the headaches it created as these contractors were forced to obtain a myriad of policies through multiple agencies in their attempts to satisfy contractual obligations and protect their businesses.

From this stress and confusion, Jason and Darrin decided to create an insurance program exclusively for restoration contractors. One that would package the necessary policies together into 1 master program, address the unique coverage needs of restoration contractors, and help save them premium as well. Their exclusive program now insures many restoration contractors across the nation.
