About 911 Restoration of Southern Illinois
Meet the Owner:
John Fowler has had many years of experience as an independent water damage contractor. He recently opened 911 Restoration of Southern Illinois to better serve his clients and reach out to a larger community.
John places a lot of value on professionalism, which translates to work performed with the highest quality. But beyond that, John is also mindful of the human factor.
“There’s a lot more to restoration than just going in and tearing out dry walls,” he reveals his frustration in how people often define the restoration industry in very narrow terms.
To John, restoration is not about property so much as it is about people. It is not enough to fix the physical infrastructure. The real job is to ease any worry and concern a customer might have.
A happy home is a safe and dry one. “I don’t restore houses, I restore homes,” this is the philosophy and value that John instills upon his employed technicians. Under his directive, his team has helped many homeowners in Marion combat against hurricanes and ice storms.
In Southern Illinois summer can be hot as blazes while winter can be long and frigid. “Winter stays late in St. Louis,” is John Fowler’s assessment.
Since water damage remediation requests often roll in after a major ice storm, John offers some tips that can help ensure your family a safe and warm winter:
- Muck your gutters thoroughly before winter arrives. Dead leaves and debris from the fall can clog the downspout and cause a roof leak. Remember to position the downspouts away from your siding with a five foot clearance: you don’t want wet siding!
- Just because it is winter doesn’t mean you should be careless about fire safety. Matter of fact, the cold season is when most people use their fireplace and chimney. Get both inspected to make sure they’re up for regular usage after having been inactive for so long.
- Listen to a NOAA Weather Radio and check other local news channels for alerts on snow storms and blizzards from the National Weather Service (NWS).
The biggest mistake John sees his clients commit again and again is being unprepared. That’s why he makes it his mission to better inform homeowners of preventative measures. As happy as he is to see returning customers, he really hopes that “we won’t see each other too often.”
Teamwork is the key word of the day
It takes many hands to build a home. It also takes many hands to restore one. John Fowler explains the biggest reason he joined a national franchise is to gain more resources to better serve his clients.
The ability to stay ahead of the weather cycle means a great deal. But what is even more important is staying available to take emergency calls at 2 AM in the morning.
Being part of the 911 Restoration franchise allows him to be available 24/7/365 to homeowners in need, as well as to offer them same day service and a free home inspection.
There is nothing worse than waking up to a crisis and doesn’t know whom to call: if you ever find yourself in this situation, go to 911 Restoration of Southern Illinois and give John Fowler a call. He’ll be there within 45 minutes or less.
