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."

More than just weather temperatures rise when the weather gets hots, so do your electricity bills. But saving money doesn’t mean that you can’t cool down. In addition to our previous post about Heat Safety, Lawton Construction and & Restoration in Auburn has some ways for you to keep the heat away this summer without reaching for the air conditioning remote.


Consider the benefits of installing awnings or shade cloths over the windows or even entrance ways of your home.  Windows are an easy way for the heat to get into your house where it stays and becomes stuffy. Awnings are a great way to stop that process before it can begin. Alternatively, speak with your local outdoor furniture store about whether an outdoor shade cloth would provide more benefit for your family. Reconstruction and repair services can provide more information about which options may be appropriate for you. Awnings also have the added option of providing protection against water damage.

Ceiling fans

When it comes to keeping your home and family cool in the summer, don’t count out the traditional ceiling fan. If you currently have a ceiling, try turning the fan direction counterclockwise to create a downward cool flow of air, giving the feeling that the room is cooler than it is. Fans are also a great way to keep air moving around the house.  Air can often become stale and make your home feel warmer than it really is. Keep the airflow moving around your house for a breeze effect.

Plant vines or trees for shade

If greenery is something that interests you, surround yourself in it. Speak with your local horticulture store and speak with an expert. Take photos of your area to show them on your phone, and ask them what benefits you could gain plan planting trees or vines around your home and garden. 

These are great ways to keep your house cool this summer without turning on the air conditioning and have the potential to make your home a more comfortable and cooler environment. If the change of seasons causes your house to require water damage repair or require reconstruction and repair services Lawton Construction and & Restoration in Auburn can provide water and fire damage services.
