What Others Say About Us
"Just wanted to let you know Slavic just finished up our job today and we are so happy with it. He came Friday and did an immaculate job on the patching of the hole in our ceiling (water damage). The texturing job was the best I’ve ever seen, you can’t tell there was any work done. Today he came by and painted. It was done quickly, professionally and with NO mess. He’s a credit to your organization, I would have no problem recommending Lawton to anyone I know. Thanks so much"

"As much as I will be very happy to have everything done…I think I will miss the crew as they are all very sweet and helpful. You don’t know how important all this is until you loose everything. I can say 100% if I had it to do over I would never consider another contractor. The entire process is very personal and Lawton treats it that way…I would happily relay my experience to anyone…they were great!"
Angela D.
"I have had two major home repairs completed by Lawton — in my kitchen and bathroom. These jobs, to repair water damage, included multiple elements — mitigation, drywall, flooring, cabinet work, electrical, etc. Their work has been excellent; their employees courteous and reliable. In addition, the costs have been quite reasonable. They work very well with my insurance company. I would recommend them to anyone who needs high quality home repair."
Kate R.
"The cleanup crew did a fantastic job removing the damaged material, masking off the rooms properly to limit dust/other from other rooms, and cleaning up in preparation of repairing the areas damaged by water. They were extremely customer oriented and very professional."

"We’d like express our sincere thanks to your staff, especially our Project Manager Ron Griesel for his sincere and through professionalism and great communication skills, he is a true asset to your company. Our estimator Matt Redmond as well has our sincere thanks for his prompt responses and efforts to launch and coordinate our project as well. Thanks also to your contractors, M&M Electric, Penkala Construction, and Mark Parr Construction. We thank your P.E. Chris Oliveria for his services. A sincere thank you for restoring our home."
Jeff & Diane Heard. 
"I would recommend Lawton to any of my friends who need construction work done. They were very professional and respectful while working in the kitchen. The work was well done. The granite counter top installation was extremely well done as it was a challenging layout. Thanks very much to Dimitri for his great work on that, we love the countertops! Thanks to all the team who worked on the project. Great job from beginning to end."

"We worked with Lawton on a garage fire restoration.  I have to say the garage is beautiful – and that’s usually hard to say about a garage.  They worked hard for us with the insurance company and went the extra mile to make sure that all damage was covered.  As glad as I am to have the job finished – the crew became more like friends and I will miss them.  Good job guys!"
Linda S.
"We had water damage in our vacation home. Our insurance company had Lawton contact us. Within hours Lawton had sent a team up to us to remove carpeting and to stop the mold and further damage. I was very pleased at how seamless the whole process was between the insurance co. , Lawton and us. Everyone we came into contact with were very likeable and willing to do whatever it would take to make us satisfied. We have our home back and it’s as good as ever. Thanks to all at Lawton."

At Lawton Construction & Restorationour specialty is 24/7 emergency mitigation service in response to properties damaged by water, fire or other destructive forces across the Sacramento, Placer, Yuba, and El Dorado counties.

Emergency Services include: board ups, roof tarps, tree services, water mitigation and water pump outs.  Board up would include boarding windows and doors to ensure the safety of the home until repairs are complete.  Roof tarps, containing a roof leak until repairs are complete.  Tree services, removal and clean-up of any fallen tree.  Pump out, pumping out sewerage or standing water in a home or structure (black and grey water).

Water damage restoration is the process of drying down an area so that repairs can be made and getting the loss ready to restore.  We understand that water damage can be overwhelming and devastating to your home and/or business.  By applying quick and proper dry out procedures, we can prevent any further damages from occurring.  If the area of water damage is left untreated it can lead to mold growth and even structural damage.  Depending on the source of loss and the length of time, the home or business can be dried out and restored without performing any demolition.  However, in some cases, flooring, wall boards, and sometimes structural components may require further extensive restoration during the initial mitigation process. 

Our company uses high quality equipment as well as daily monitoring of the dry out process.  This allows us to move/add equipment in your home as the area dries out.  Our ultimate goal is to bring your home back to pre-loss condition, also known as “dry standard.”  Dry standard means that the building materials have released excessive moisture due to our mitigation process and now has the same moisture content as the unaffected areas in the rest of your home.  Typical dry-out takes 3-5 business days depending on the severity of the source.  The estimated time may be increased which needs to be pre-approved from the homeowner’s insurance company.

Mold remediation is defined as the procedure of removing, cleaning, sanitizing and demolishing of mold and/or mold-contaminated matter.  In other words, it is the process of eliminating mold.  The following are some measures that it involves; area containment, removal of moldy materials, disposal of moldy materials, treatment of remaining construction materials with antimicrobial solution and air scrubber treatment.

Mold remediation is not only about getting rid of the existing mold but preventing the mold from growing in the future.  This process should never be undertaken by homeowners, property managers, and/or other individuals, which is why our team is certified to carry out the job. 

After the mold remediation is completed, we will send a hygienist back to test for clearance at your home and/or business.  Clearance takes typically 1-2 business days for the results to be finalized.  Once we receive written clearance, our team can then remove any equipment and prepare for repairs if necessary. 

Asbestos fibers are microscopic in nature but extremely durable and resistant to fire, most chemical reactions, and breakdowns.  The strength of asbestos, with the combination of heat allows it to become the material of choice in a variety of products, including, but not limited to, roofing shingles, floor tiles, ceiling materials, cement compounds, textile products, and automotive parts. 

When asbestos is present Lawton Construction & Restoration, Inc. will arrive on site and establish a regulated work area.  We will set containment in the affected area to where the asbestos is being removed.  This area is sealed off in order prevent contamination of the other areas.  We will also set up negative air pressure machines that are fitted with HEPA filters.

Once asbestos is removed, we will then schedule a hygienist for testing and clearance.  Clearance takes typically 1-2 business days for the results to be finalized.  When we receive clearance, our team can then remove any equipment and prepare for repairs if necessary.

The initial stages include, but are not limited to:           
Pack-Out – Our Contents Department will professionally photograph and inventory your personal belongings.
Move-Out – Our moving crew will load your belongings onto a moving truck and transport them to our secure, climate-controlled contents processing facility.
Pack-In - Our Contents Department will return all your belongings safely to your property.

Based on the condition of your structure, weather conditions and amount of personal belongings to be packed and/or moved, etc., each stage could take several days to complete.  We strive to make the process as smooth as possible.  We ask that a policy holder be present during the move-out, as a signature is required to release your contents to our care.  Contents will be transported and processed in our contents processing facility where they will be evaluated, cleaned and/or restored.  They will be secured and labeled in individual storage crates in our climate controlled contents processing facility.

The reconstruction of a home involves several steps including the selection of the items to be replaced, engineering, permitting (if required), insurance approval, and construction timeline.  Lawton Construction & Restoration, Inc., prides ourselves in the ability to make this process as easy as possible for the homeowner(s).  We also offer a showroom for the homeowner to help choose items to be replaced such as flooring, tile, granite, and cabinets.  Note: timelines for repairs can change for many reasons, some being material delivery times or weather interruptions.  Lawton Construction & Restoration, Inc. does everything possible to make this process fast and smooth for all clients.
