Who We Are

Within the insurance industry there have been a number of major deficiencies for restoration contractors trying to obtain coverage for their companies.  Until now, there was not an effective solution for these contractors.  In addition to the CIC designation, the owners of ARI are both IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification) Certified.  This gives them valuable knowledge about the restoration industry that other agents do not have.  They observed the headaches it created as 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 confusion, they decided to create an insurance program exclusively for restoration contractors.  One that would package the necessary policies together, address the unique coverage needs of restoration contractors, and help save premium in the process.  Our exclusive program currently insures numerous restoration contractors across the nation.
